    The FBI agent who criticised US President Donald Trump in text messages during his 2016 presidential campaign has been fired.

    Peter Strzok is the third high-ranking official to be let go by the agency, under this administration.

    Some see the unprecedented attack on the FBI and its agents as part of a bid to discredit the investigation into his campaign that was accused of collusion with Russia.
