Top Republican’s Son So ‘Embarrassed’ By Strzok’s Firing, Gives Money To Dem Running For Dad’s Seat

The FBI fired agent Peter Strzok on Tuesday over anti-Trump texts he sent his former lover. The thing is, though, that the couple bashed all of the candidates in 2016, but Trump loyalists focused on the Trump texts. Strzok has been demonized by Republicans as they attempted to discredit the Russia probe by undermining our country’s top law enforcement agency. The day Strzok testified was an embarrassing day for Republicans. It also ’embarrassed’ Bobby Goodlatte, a prominent Republican’s son. Mr. Goodlatte took to Twitter to blast his father’s role in the saga leading up to Strzok’s ouster from the FBI, then led a charge to raise funds for Democrat Jennifer Lewis. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, was bravely called out by his own son. By the way, you can donate to the Democrat here.

Bobby Goodlatte called Strzok a “patriot” and added that he was “embarrassed” that his “career was ruined by my father’s political grandstanding.”

Then he called for donations for the Democrat running for his father’s seat.

And again:

Strzok was part of Mueller’s probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, but he was promptly removed from it after his messages critical of Trump were revealed.

Rep. Goodlatte, who has served in the House since 1993, announced in November that he would not seek re-election in 2018. Democrat Jennifer Lewis’s Republican opponent is state Del. Ben Cline, an anti-abortion Trump supporter and former aide to Rep. Goodlatte.

The OIG found no evidence that Strzoks comments influenced his work but he was fired anyway. In the past 19 hours, over $213,000 has been raised for Peter Strzok to cover legal costs and lost income.

Rep. Goodlatte also thought that former Deputy Director of the FBI’s firing was appropriate.

Reminder: So far, 191 charges and indictments against 32 people have been handed down — including 4 members of Trump’s campaign, one of whom is in prison waiting for his trial — and 3 companies.
