Peter Strzok is finally out at the FBI. In a move that should surprise no one, he set up social media accounts so he can remain public and annoying. He even set up a GoFundMe site to raise cash. It was originally asking for $150K but has now upped the amount to $350K.

Fired FBI agent Peter Strzok sets up anti-Trump Twitter account; GoFundMe page seeks $150G
Fired FBI agent Peter Strzok took his anti-Trump rhetoric public on Monday, setting up a defiant Twitter account as a GoFundMe page sought to raise $150,000 to cover his “legal costs and lost income.”
Strzok, who played a lead role in both the Russian meddling and Hillary Clinton email probes but became a political lightning rod after the revelation of text messages critical of Trump, wasted no time blasting the administration and House Republicans in his new social media account.
“Deeply saddened by this decision,” Strzok wrote in the tweet shortly after his firing was announced Monday. “It has been an honor to serve my country and work with the fine men and women of the FBI.”
He attached an image of a statement from his attorneys that criticized his firing, saying “the FBI and the American people deserve better.” The letter specifically lambasted the decision of the deputy director of the FBI to effectively overrule the FBI’s internal disciplinary body, which had recommended Strzok be suspended and demoted instead of terminated.
He has already raised almost $200K. Who is giving this guy money?
