Disgraced “FBI lovebirds” Peter Strzok and Lisa Page have reached a “tentative” settlement with the Department of Justice over the alleged violation of their privacy rights with the release of their disparaging text messages about former President Donald Trump during the Russian collusion investigation.

The deal was disclosed in a court filing Tuesday that did not reveal any of the terms, the Washington Times reported.

(…) Strzok also sued the department for firing him, arguing that the FBI gave in to “unrelenting pressure” from Trump and violated his First Amendment rights. He sought back pay and reinstatement in his lawsuit.

“Those constitutional claims have not been resolved by the tentative settlement,” according to a Times review of the court notice.

Page’s lawsuit also sought reimbursement for “the cost of childcare during and transportation to multiple investigative reviews and appearances before Congress,” the “cost of paying a data-privacy service to protect her personal information,” and attorney’s fees, Fox News reported.

It is unclear if the tentative settlement, which is still pending finalization and approval from a judge, covered the plaintiff’s requests. (Read more: Breitbart, 5/30/2024) (Archive)
