Dirty former FBI lawyer Peter Strzok was at the center of Spygate.
He is now trying to subpoena 45th President Donald Trump.
Shockingly Biden’s DOJ is asking a judge to block the subpoena.
NEW: Peter Strzok is trying to subpoena Trump to depose him (he wants Trump’s testimony about Strzok’s firing by the FBI over his biased anti-Trump texts while investigating Trump) but the Biden DOJ is asking judge to block the subpoena (at least for now).https://t.co/2UlMWI9pQC

The Biden Justice Department moved to block a subpoena to depose former President Donald Trump sent by Peter Strzok, who sued the FBI for wrongful termination from his role as special agent after the emergence of his anti-Trump texts.
The DOJ recommended that the court “quash the subpoena” calling Trump to testify, as his effect on Strzok’s firing was not demonstrated by the lawsuit’s evidence as it presently stands.
“Such depositions cannot proceed unless the party seeking the testimony can make the weighty showing that the sitting or former official possesses directly relevant information that cannot be obtained from other sources,” read the filing, which was submitted Friday to the Southern District of New York for the case pending in Washington, D.C., district court.
The DOJ may allow the subpoena to proceed in the future if FBI Director Christopher Wray and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions were to reveal in their testimonies that they were “directly influenced” by the former president. Trump’s deposition was the first Strzok’s lawsuit requested.
The Justice Department pointed out that future discovery in Strzok’s lawsuit “may reveal, for example, that even if the officials directly responsible for Mr. Strzok’s firing were aware of communications from then-President Trump, they were not influenced by those communications” and argued that “it is too soon to assess whether deposition testimony from the former President is truly needed.”
