Does Comey ring a bell? How about Peter Strzok? Did this news not make it to the far right websites yet? During the investigation there were people terminated that he did not like how far they were getting into what happened. This is pretty much what Trump does, when someone does not agree with him or OMG says something bad about him that is true, he fires them.
Strzok left the investigation in late July 2017 after the discovery of personal text messages sent to a colleague. At the request of Republicans in Congress, the Justice Department (DOJ) Inspector General (IG) began an inquiry in January 2017 into how the FBI handled investigations related to the election, and the IG announced it would issue a report by March or April 2018. The report was eventually released on June 14, 2018, after several delays.
On June 15, 2018, the day after this IG report was published, Strzok was escorted from FBI headquarters as part of the bureau's internal conduct investigations. The move put Strzok on notice that the bureau intended to fire him, though he had appeal rights that could delay such action. On June 21, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that Strzok had lost his security clearance.
FBI Deputy Director David L. Bowdich fired Strzok on August 10, 2018. His decision overruled the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, whose head, Candice Will, had decided that Strzok should be demoted and suspended for 60 days. On August 13, a GoFundMe campaign was created by "Friends Of Special Agent Peter Strzok" to raise money for Strzok's lost income and ongoing legal costs
So first, Trump didn't fire him, the FBI director did, after he was found to have violated Bureau policies.
But let's set that aside for the moment.
What about Mueller? Wasn't he appointed after Comey's firing to investigate the collusion "theory"?
Didn't he have access to resources and capabilities to fully investigate the question?
And what did he find related to collusion?
Not a god damn thing.
