Robert Mueller removed a top FBI counterintelligence agent from his investigation into Russia's 2016 election meddling this past summer after the Justice Department's inspector general started looking into text messages he and another agent on Mueller's team may have sent expressing negative views about Donald Trump.

One of the most trusted FBI counterintelligence investigators, Strzok helped in leading the investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information on her private email account, and then played a major role in the investigation into links between President Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, reported New York Times.

A spokesperson for the special counsel's office, Peter Carr, said "Immediately upon learning of the allegations, the special counsel's office removed Strzok from the investigation", reported New York Times.

A lawyer for Mr. Strzok declined to comment.

Peter Strzok, who led the investigation of Mrs. Clinton's email server in 2016, left the special counsel's team last summer.

"I am concerned, however, that our chairman is willing to use the subpoena and contempt power of the House, not to determine how the Russians interfered in our election or whether the president obstructed Justice, but only to distract from the core of our investigation", Schiff said. Strzok was re-assigned to the FBI's human resources department, a move many saw as a demotion. Supporters of the president have pointed to Democratic campaign contributions by members of the special counsel team, and to the Uranium One deal with Russian Federation that Clinton's State Department helped approve, which happened while Mueller was Federal Bureau of Investigation director.
