CNN has reported that Peter Strzok, a former counterintelligence expert at the FBI, changed the description of Hillary Clinton’s email use in James Comey’s description from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”
Strzok was removed from the investigation of Russian election meddling by special counsel Robert Mueller after he reportedly shared anti-Trump comments in private messages.
