Oversight of FBI and DOJ: Testimony by FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok

Former FBI counterespionage chief Peter Strzok will testify before the House Judiciary Committee at a hearing titled, “Oversight of FBI and DOJ Actions Surrounding the 2016 Election.”

Strzok exchanged troubling text messages with fellow FBI colleague and lover, Lisa Page, in which he was adamant that they would “stop” then presidential candidate Trump from ever being elected.

Texts include terms such as “idot”, and “douche”, when referring to Donald Trump, candidate at the time for president, as well as making fun of Trump supporters.

Justice Department and FBI. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Judiciary Committee’s chairman, stated last month while at a hearing, “our responsibility to the American people is to conduct robust oversight.”

Lisa Page refused to appear for an interview with congressional investigators Wednesday morning despite a subpoena, and House Republicans are also considering a vote to hold Page in contempt.

A statement from Page’s lawyer, Amy Jeffress said that Page was not given enough time to prepare and review documents  and has asked lawmakers to reschedule the session.

Strzok, who has been placed on what is equivalent to administrative leave by the FBI will have to answer for these texts and other questions brought up in Thursday’s hearing.
