Today, Representative Tom Marino (PA-10) released the following statement regarding the FBI's firing of Special Agent Peter Strzok.

"As I said to Mr. Strzok directly, his high opinion of himself cost him his job at the FBI. He damaged trust in a most respected American institution and in doing so, was appropriately removed from his position. The FBI's internal review, IG report, and Strzok's testimony strongly indicated that he allowed his bias to affect his work at the bureau. This is a justified action for the FBI to take in course correction the from recent departures in proper investigative procedures."
