Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom joined Fox Business News Thursday, calling for disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok to be jailed over his ‘anti-Trump,’ texts.
On the subject of Strzok’s text messages, Fox Business News host Liz MacDonald asked Kallstrom, “What can an FBI official, an FBI agent do to stop a president from getting election?”

Kallstrom replied, “Well, I think he can do what [Strzok] tried to do.”
“He can fabricate things, he can make up stuff, he can lie, he can be a total moron.”
“He can recruit others — you know, he belongs in Leavenworth this guy, in my personal view.”
“I don’t have all the facts, but from what I know, he belongs behind bars this guy,” added the former FBI official.
“These things cannot happen in a democracy,” concluded Kallstrom.
This week, Fox News published a portion of the approximately 10,000 texts messages sent between FBI agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page. Among the messages is an exchange revealing Strzok and Page discussed an ‘insurance policy,’ against a Trump presidency.
The kicker? Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe may have not only been privy to the conversation, but a part of it.
The discussion took place in his office.
On Wednesday morning, Fox News reporter Bret Baier tweeted the following: “Text-from Peter Strzok to Lisa Page (Andy is Andrew McCabe): “I want to believe the path u threw out 4 consideration in Andy’s office-that there’s no way he gets elected-but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk.It’s like an insurance policy in unlikely event u die be4 you’re 40.”
Lisa Page also sent a text to Peter Strzok saying, ‘Trump should go f*ck himself’.
