Gee. Whodathunkit.

Mueller sure knows how to pick the best people.

The former top FBI official assigned to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election was taken off that job this past summer after his bosses discovered he and another member of Mueller’s team had exchanged politically charged texts disparaging President Trump and supportive of Hillary Clinton, according to multiple people familiar with the matter.

Peter Strzok, as deputy head of counterintelligence at the FBI, was a key player in the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server to do government work as secretary of state, as well as the probe into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election.

During the Clinton investigation, Strzok was involved in a romantic relationship with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who worked for Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, according to the people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.

The extramarital affair was problematic, these people said, but of greater concern among senior law enforcement officials were text messages the two exchanged during the Clinton investigation and campaign season, in which they expressed anti-Trump sentiments and other comments that appeared to favor Clinton.

if this is true wouldn't it just show that Mueller isn't tolerating any unprofessional or bias behavior towards Trump?

Any American that doesn't hate Trump is not a real American.
I assume there are people that love cancer too.

This is a BS story.

Every person on Mueller's team is a Trump hating, anti-American, HRC campaign donating, marxist.

There's more conflict of interest with this entire unConstitutional witch hunt than a ramadan celebration at a synagogue.

This is another fake news story from the Washington Compost.
