The firing of FBI agent Peter Strzok earlier this month was long overdue, according to James Kallstrom, a former FBI assistant director who worked for the agency for 27 years.

Speaking to John Catsimatidis on his “The Cats Roundtable” Sunday radio show on AM 970 in New York, Kallstrom said that Strzok’s “actions were just so outrageous. I think he has tremendous exposure criminally.”

He insisted that, “there’s a lot more to come that we don’t know about, [because] once it’s known about who partook in all the FISA affidavits and who signed them all and what’s actually in the affidavits, I think there’s going to be wide exposure to numerous people in the Justice Department and the FBI.”

Kallstrom also said that “we don’t know about all the unmasking of hundreds and hundreds of names of American citizens that was done by the Obama administration.”

Kallstrom said Strzok’s congressional testimony last month “was very telling that somebody who has such a tremendous, outrageous ego, and has other mental problems... would ever get to that position in the FBI.”

He also slammed former CIA Director John Brennan, saying that the revocation of his security clearance was “long overdue.”

Kallstrom called Brennan a “very, very strange guy. Very erratic. He said tremendous amounts of things he never should’ve said. He lied on numerous occasions before the Congress. He conducted an investigation against the intelligence committee in the Senate. He was not well liked at all by the people in the CIA.”

He also questioned why so many of those who were once in the top levels of government automatically kept their security clearance, saying that such a practice is stupid.

Kallstrom also had harsh words for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, insisting that, “he doesn’t engage on any issues he should be engaged on. He’s not engaged on all this fraud and abuse at Justice and the FBI. … He’s engaged in simple things. He’s like a simpleton.”

Kallstrom, a known critic of the Obama administration, said that the former president “basically ruined the government. He filled the government with all these sycophants who agreed with his line of BS and that included the FBI, the Justice Department, and all the agencies. It’s just pathetic. It’s outrageous, how in that short period of time we went from a pretty stable government that would go from election to election pretty easily to something that is now looks like a carnival act.”
