Although Strzok appears to remain employed at the Bureau, the escort came just one day after the release of a Department of Justice Inspector General report that revealed Strzok said he would "stop" Donald Trump from becoming president. DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been on Capitol Hill for two days testifying about the report's findings and Strzok's bias.

IG Horowitz: "His text messages would certainly give that as the implication." https://t.co/BaxLQdBg2R
For weeks, but especially in light of the IG report, lawmakers have demanded to know why Strzok is still employed, not to mention in a human resources position.
