Some interesting biographical information is coming out on disgraced counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok. His dad, it turns out, was a longtime member of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers who spent many years living in Iran.

Strzok's brother, James, is a Jesuit priest performing missionary work in east Africa, according to Wikipedia.
