New information has come to light, that special counsel Robert Mueller took a top FBI agent off the Russia probe due to the agent’s political bias.

Agent Peter Strzok was removed from the case after a Department of Justice investigation revealed he exchanged politically charged text messages with an FBI attorney, criticizing then-candidate Trump and supporting Hillary Clinton.

Over the summer, Strzok was reassigned from the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in U.S. affairs to the F.B.I’s Human Resources Department, though the reason for his removal was unclear at the time.

The agent also worked on the Clinton email server investigation.
