(Newser) – Peter Strzok, fired by the FBI and insulted by President Trump, still apparently has a few allies. A GoFundMe fundraiser that friends started for the 21-year agency veteran raked in more than $190,000 in a matter of hours Monday, the Hill reports. Strzok, "his work, and his character have been the target of highly politicized attacks, including frequent slanderous statements from President Trump, who actively—and apparently successfully—pressured FBI officials to fire Pete," the fundraiser states. Strzok isn't a wealthy lobbyist, and "doesn’t have deep pockets that allow him to pay for the significant legal bills he has incurred ... or to easily cover the expenses incurred by his lost income," it says.
