The story of FBI agent Peter Strzok “doesn’t change anything,” CNN anchor Jake Tapper said during a segment Monday night.

“And this, Mr. Strzok, this FBI agent in charge, it doesn’t change anything, the one that has been removed from the investigation. It doesn’t change anything about what we know about the president’s actions and the questions about his potential obstruction of justice,” Tapper said.

Strzok was the former deputy to the assistant director of counterintelligence of the FBI, and changed then-Director James Comey’s report on Hillary Clinton to say she was “extremely careless” instead of “grossly negligent” with her private email server.

“Or the fact that Flynn pleaded guilty and three others, two others were indicted, one other, Papadopoulos had a plea agreement — it doesn’t really change it,” Tapper said. “It might change the subject for some people as we were derailed here for a little bit as well, but it doesn’t change the facts of the Trump investigation as it were.”

Strzok was also reportedly dismissed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s legal team for texting anti-Trump sentiments, and for being involved in an extramarital affair with FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
