Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), in an appearance on Bloomberg on Monday, said that former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok deserved to be fired by the bureau for his comments about President Trump.

“I would have fired him too,” Swalwell told Bloomberg. “As a brother of police officers and a former prosecutor, with the stakes this high – a presidential candidate being investigated, you can’t talk that way.”

The Democrat, who has hinted at a potential 2020 presidential run, argued that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation remains legitimate, despite Strzok’s remarks.

The FBI fired Strzok on Monday, weeks after the agent testified before the House of Representatives.
