Embattled anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok is set to testify publicly for the first time on Thursday before House Republicans investigating bias at the nation’s top law enforcement agency, just one day after his former lover at the FBI, attorney Lisa Page, ducked a Congressional subpoena.
GOP leaders are expected to grill Strzok at a joint session of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees beginning at 10 a.m. EST.
Their focus will be the slew of Trump-bashing texts Strzok sent using his FBI phone while conducting investigations into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton’s email server, as well as the possible impact of any political bias on investigative decisions. Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe earlier this year after his texts were revealed.
How can the Rigged Witch Hunt proceed when it was started, influenced and worked on, for an extended period of time, by former FBI Agent/Lover Peter Strzok? Read his hate filled and totally biased Emails and the answer is clear!
