GOP lawmakers want probe of FBI over Clinton investigation

GOP lawmakers want probe of FBI over Clinton investigation

The House Intelligence Committee has complained about similar FBI stonewalling techniques regarding the documents about Stzrok and related information about the former FBI Director, James Comey's controversial statement past year that had announced that the agency had decided not to bring any criminal charges against Clinton in the email investigations.

Question 3: Why did special counsel Robert Mueller, who headed the FBI for a dozen years before handing it over to Comey-his longtime friend-keep the news that one of his top agents on the Russian Federation "collusion" investigation, Peter Strzok, was a partisan anti-Trumpist, who also worked on the Comey investigation of Hillary Clinton?

Grassley also wants communications involving Strzok related to the FBI's interactions with Christopher Steele, the author of a salacious dossier on Trump; communications regarding the FBI's use of Steele's dossier in seeking any warrants; FBI documents regarding the bureau's interview of Flynn at which Strzok was present; and communications from Strzok regarding Trump and Clinton.

The texts between Strzok and Page had occurred while both were working on Clinton's investigations.

"If you were interviewed by this staff, you couldn't pick out who was Republican and who was Democrat", Burr said during a public forum on Russian Federation at the Council on Foreign Affairs.

The Justice Department's inspector general discovered this summer that Strzok and Page exchanged messages bashing President Trump and supporting 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

During a Thursday interview with Fox News, Gowdy pointed out the various problematic things that Agent Peter Strzok had done while overseeing the Clinton and Trump-Russia investigations.

"There are two major controversies plaguing the credibility of the Justice Department and the FBI right now: the Trump/Russia investigation and the handling of the Clinton investigation", Grassley said.

"Why are the same people that mishandled and provided bias to the Hillary Clinton investigation, why are they still in this administration?" asked Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.). And in awe. Thank you so much. "All my deepest respects, Andrew Weissmann." . Trump fired Yates, accusing her of failing to uphold a lawful order that was "designed to protect the citizens of the United States".

'Reports on the bias of some of the career agents and lawyers on current special counsel Mueller's team are also deeply troubling to a system of blind and equal justice, ' said Goodlatte.

"I am so proud".

"The president's order is an unconstitutional embarrassment and I applaud you for taking a principled stand against defending it", he added.

"We'll decline to comment on personnel questions", the spokeswoman told the Washington Free Beacon late Tuesday.

"We sent a letter to Attorney General Sessions, Deputy Attorney General [Rod] Rosenstein, and FBI Director [Christopher] Wray asking them to make available, make public, the application that we believe was taken to the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] court to enable the spying to take place on Americans associated with the Trump campaign", he said.
