Peter Strzok, FBI Agent in Texting Scandal, Will Testify Before Congress

FBI agent removed from Russia probe for anti-Trump texts says he’s willing to testify before Congress

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz last week released a report that said Strzok had sent a text message that indicated a "biased state of mind" and a "willingness to act" against Trump's election.

The FBI agent who has become a target of President Trump and his allies for the anti-Trump texts he sent while working on the Russian Federation probe was escorted from the bureau's "building as part of the ongoing internal proceedings", his attorney said in a statement to reporters Tuesday.

Goelman said Strzok "wants the chance to clear his name and tell his story". No he won't. We'll stop it.

"When asked about this text message, Strzok stated that he did not specifically recall sending it, but that he believed that it was meant to reassure Page that Trump would not be elected, not to suggest that he would do something to impact the investigation", the report said.

Schiff noted that Republicans on the committee had notified the DOJ in January about the committee's intentions to interview Strzok, but they ultimately did not offer him the opportunity to speak before the committee "for reasons that remain unclear".

We're not sure how sturdy the slide-up mechanism is, but it should be built for major wear and tear, if it is to serve this way. The Automobili Lamborghini edition of the Find X will also have an updated storage with a massive 512GB of on-board storage .

The report mentioned the texts to be "disappointing" and said it could lead to the questioning of the integrity of the 2016 Clinton probe.

"I think two days of hearings might not be enough to get through what was a 500-page report that's not just telling that Peter Strzok said 'we'll stop Trump.' That is damning in and of itself", Harrington said.

President Trump has criticized Strzok and Page on Twitter.

However, Horowitz was troubled by the FBI's month-long delay in obtaining a search warrant to review emails possibly related to the investigation on former Rep. Anthony Weiner's laptop in the fall of 2016. We also have agents admitting Hillary Clinton's IT guy, the one who deleted all the emails while Congress was seeking them, he lied his butt off to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which according to James Comey is a very serious offense and what did the Federal Bureau of Investigation do? Rosenstein has now held three classified briefings with congressional leaders on that topic, and the department says it has provided those members with documents during those briefings. He said Strzok did not do the one thing that might have actually helped Clinton and hurt Trump: leak word of the investigation of the Trump campaign.
