Judicial Watch: New Emails Reveal FBI Official Peter Strzok Insisted on Retaining Declassification and other Authorities for Mueller Special Counsel Assignment
Contact: Jill Farrell, Judicial Watch, 202-646-5188
 
WASHINGTON, July 31, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch today released 14 pages of FBI documents concerning the assignment of former FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's operation, showing that Strzok insisted on retaining his FBI security clearance before moving to the Mueller team and confirming that Strzok played a pivotal role in the flawed Hillary Clinton email investigation.
 
The records were received in response to a December 2017 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that was filed after the FBI failed to respond to an August 17, 2017, FOIA request (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. Federal Bureau of Investigation (No. 1:17-cv-02682)). Judicial Watch seeks:
 
·         All records regarding the assignment of FBI Supervisor Peter Strzok to the special counsel's investigation led by former Director Robert Mueller.

·         All records related to the reassignment of FBI Supervisor Peter Strzok from the special counsel's investigation to another position within the FBI.
