Curtis Houck, managing editor of Newsbusters. CBS, NBC Ignore Role of Anti-Trump FBI Agent in Clinton E-Mail Probe. This weekend it was discovered that Special Counsel Robert Mueller kicked veteran FBI agent Peter Strzok off his team for sending text messages that were disparaging of President Trump. But on Monday, we discovered that the ﬁred agent was responsible for turning down former FBI Director Comey’s language when he announced he would not recommend charges be brought against Hillary Clinton in her e-mail investigation. That interesting tidbit was blacked out of the reports in the evening broadcasts of CBS and NBC.
