Strzok Raking in Cash in Post-Firing Fund-raising

Estranged and ousted FBI agent Peter Strzok may have found an infinitely more lucrative gig than collusive federal service. Since his firing for unprofessional (read: corrupt) anti-Trump text messages during the course of investigations, Strzok has doubled his online fund-raising goals from $150,000 to $350,000 to help pay legal bills… and make up for his lost salary. Incredibly, almost a quarter million dollars has already been donated, and the effort has become an overnight Twitter sensation, with 25,000 followers gained after just two posts on the page. When leftists and bureaucrats circle the wagons, it’s a phenomenon that rivals the Mafia.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

Former FBI agent Peter Strzok has more than doubled the amount of money he is seeking from an online fundraiser set up in the wake of his recent firing from the bureau.

Strzok, who was fired Friday over anti-Trump text messages he sent in 2016 and 2017, initially sought $150,000 to help pay for legal bills and lost income. (RELATED: Peter Strzok Fired For Anti-Trump Texts)

The goal of the GoFundMe fundraiser was increased to $350,000 Tuesday morning. As of this writing, nearly $240,000 has been donated.

Strzok has also set up a Twitter account, as The Daily Caller News Foundation first reported. The account had seven followers on Monday, prior to TheDCNF report. He now has more than 25,000 followers on the social media site.

Strzok has made only two posts to the account. The first, on Monday, was a link to a statement issued by his attorney about the FBI’s decision to fire Strzok.
