Former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok wants to get Donald Trump on the stand.
Unfortunately for him, he is also trying to get FBI Director Wray on the stand for the same reasons.
So, the DOJ had no choice but to try to block Strzok from both Trump and Wray being deposed.
Strzok is suing for wrongful termination despite a stack of evidence against him.
DOJ Deputy Assistant Attorney General Brian Netter, along with other Justice Department officials, are telling Strzok that is not going to happen.
His termination has been looked at seven ways to Sunday, and it has been proven to be justified.
Excerpts from his termination letter from former FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich make it clear he has no legal ground to stand on.
The letter stated, "I removed all the politics, pundits, commentary, and the media from reporting the decision point I must address.
"When I strip away all the 'noise,' I am left with the facts and the extremely damaging impact to our organization, which will take years to overcome.
"As Deputy Assistant Director you were supposed to be a leader who was beyond reproach and set an example not only for your direct subordinates, but others throughout the organization who watched and observed your behaviors and actions. You failed to do so repeatedly and put your own interests about [sic] the interests of the organization.
"Though it pains me to do so, it is for this reason that I am dismissing you from the rolls of the FBI."
Bowdich further stated that regarding Trump's role in Strzok's termination, he "never saw the president get involved in the termination of anyone beyond the politically-appointed director."
Sorry, Pete, but you can go pound sand.
