Texts between the two included their observations of the 2016 election and criticism of Trump.
Text messages denouncing Trump that Strzok exchanged with former FBI lawyer have been cited in an effort to undermine the investigation into Russian Federation meddling and whether anyone close to Trump colluded in it.
The decision to fire Strzok was so surprising because he had signed an agreement in July with the Office of Professional Responsibility to accept the suspension and demotion, Goelman said in an interview Monday.
The decision, Goelman added, was troubling because a lengthy investigation and congressional testimony failed to produce any evidence that his clients personal views affected his work. "The list of bad players in the FBI & DOJ gets longer & long".
In another tweet, he called the inquiry into Hillary Clinton's email server, a "sham investigation", saying it "was a total fraud on the American public and should be properly redone!" The FBI had been reviewing his employment. In one text four days before the election, Page told Strzok that the "American presidential election, and thus, the state of the world, actually hangs in the balance".
Earlier this year, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe after a scathing report by the Justice Department's internal watchdog concluded he had leaked information to reporters and misled investigators about his actions. Strzok was escorted from Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters in June, after a DOJ watchdog report was critical of his actions.
Strzok was deeply involved in the FBI's Clinton email investigation and was temporarily assigned to Mueller's office.
"Agent Strzok has a most unusual and largely self-serving definition of bias. despite common sense, doesn't think he's biased", Gowdy said.
Because Strzok, who is 48, was sacked before his 50th birthday, he potentially stands to lose a portion of his pension benefits.
An hour later, the parody account tweeted again and railed against President Donald Trump, who had accused Strzok of being biased in multiple tweets and speeches.
Trump has repeatedly criticized Strzok on Twitter.
Strzok worked on the early stages of the Russian Federation investigation in 2016 and worked on the special counsel's team for a few months after Robert Mueller was appointed in May 2017.
The FBI had no immediate comment.
Trump took to Twitter not long after the news broke on Monday.
