Mueller's Special Counsel's Russia probe loses top FBI investigator

Sounds like this Investigator bailed because he probably didn't like what is going on. He probably actually has principles. Just like Dan Bongino leaving his job with the Secret Service over protecting Obama and not being. 

One of the FBI's top investigators, tapped by special counsel Robert Mueller just weeks ago to help lead the probe of Russian meddling in last year's presidential election, has left Mueller’s team, sources tell ABC News.

The recent departure of FBI veteran Peter Strzok is the first known hitch in a secretive probe that by all public accounts is charging full-steam ahead. Just last week, news surfaced that Mueller's team had executed a search warrant at the Virginia home of Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort. And the week before that ABC News confirmed Mueller is now using a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., to collect documents and other evidence.

It's unclear why Strzok stepped away from Mueller's team of nearly two dozen lawyers, investigators and administrative staff. Strzok, who has spent much of his law enforcement career working counterintelligence cases and has been unanimously praised by government officials who spoke with ABC News, is now working for the FBI's human resources division.

He is no stranger to complex and controversial investigations.

As chief of the FBI's counterespionage section last year, he helped oversee the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, and he took part in the FBI interview of the Democratic presidential candidate.

Within weeks of the Clinton probe ending, Strzok found his office facing a new challenge: investigating Russia's alleged efforts to influence last year’s presidential election, including a cyberattack on the Democratic National Committee.

A spokesman for the special counsel's office declined to comment.

Hannity: Mueller Needs to Meet with Julian Assange Right Now

Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Thursday night, Sean called on special counsel Robert Mueller to meet with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange over recent claims he possesses evidence that proves Russia had nothing to do with DNC email leaks.

“WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told a republican Congressman from California, Dana Rohrabacher, that he has evidence to prove that the emails that he published about the DNC never came from Russia,” said Hannity.

“The US intelligence community say they have different evidence; they have yet to release any of it to the public,” he added. “If Assange can back-up this claim it would blow a huge hole in an eleven-month narrative of Russia collusion; a conspiracy theory without evidence the democrats and the destroy-Trump media have been pushing now month after month.”

Sean went on to say that Mueller “owes this” to the American people and President Trump if he is truly interested in getting to the bottom of allegations that Russia illegally interfered in the 2016 presidential race.

“WikiLeaks has never been wrong once in eleven years of publishing. The special counsel tonight, Robert Mueller, should be getting on a plane and going to meet with Assange to find out -if in fact- he has this evidence and is telling the world the truth,” said Hannity.

“He owes this to the American people. He owes it to the President and Congress now should immediately open an investigation,” he added. “This is the one guy we know who has the information.”
