Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Trey Gowdy (R-SC) took the FBI to task in the wake of the inspector general’s report regarding the Clinton email investigation.
“Not only did he want to stop the Trump campaign, he wanted to stop the Trump presidency,” Gowdy told Fox News. “Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who was on Hillary Clinton’s investigation, and arguably the lead Russia investigator, not only wanted to stop his campaign, but once he won, got on the Mueller probe because he wanted to impeach him. That is a level of animus and bias that everyone should reject.”
Strzok became a media sensation when it was revealed he and FBI attorney Lisa Page exchanged text messages in 2016 stating they would “stop” Donald Trump from becoming president. The two were found to be having an intimate affair at the time.
On Sunday, Strzok sent a letter to to House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) stating he would be willing to testify in front of Congress. Despite the discovery of Strzok’s bias text messages, he remains active in the FBI.
