At that point, Rep. Trey GowdyHarold (Trey) Watson GowdyFBI agent set for public House grilling Dems call for release of Strzok interview transcript Pruitt is gone, but the investigations remain MORE (R-S.C.) if the Trump texts were biased, Strzok responded, "I do not think that bias was expressed in those text messages".
Strzok again stated he could not answer and Goodlatte said the Committee would consider a contempt citation.
In the prepared remarks, Strzok acknowledges that while his text message criticism was "blunt", it was not directed at one person or political party, and included jabs not only at Trump, but also at Clinton as well as Sen. "Not once in my 26 years of defending our nation did my personal opinions impact any official action I took".
Cohen went on to describe the hearing as "an attack on you and a way to attack [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller and the investigation that is to get at Russian collusion involved in our elections, which is what this committee should be looking at".
"This demand puts Mr. Strzok in an impossible position", Nadler said. "Why don't you leave it alone". Republicans want to question Page about her anti-Trump texts with disgraced Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok, with whom she was having an extramarital affair. An inspector general report blamed Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page for creating an appearance of impropriety through their texts but found that the outcome of the Clinton investigation wasn't tainted by bias. Gohmert speculated about whether he looked "so innocent" when he looked into his wife's eyes and lied about the affair.
"This investigation is not politically motivated, it is not a witch hunt, it is not a hoax", Strzok said in a statement to be delivered at the hearing.
The vote took at least five minutes. "There is simply no evidence of bias in my professional actions".
Just as sacred, said Peter Strzok on Thursday in the halls of Congress, was his own right to curse the president of the United States and the odours of the Americans who love him, even while heading the investigation against him. In one exchange, Strozk vowed to "stop" Trump. Strzok: "No ... we'll stop it".

Ex-FBI attorney Lisa Page has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees this week, The Hill reported Thursday.
A New Jersey Democratic congresswoman interrupted House Oversight Committee Chariman Trey Gowdy of SC, telling him he was "out of control" at FBI Agent Peter Strzok's hearing.
Page served as the chief legal adviser to the FBI's then-deputy director, Andrew McCabe. Strzok said he was not alone in holding political opinions, noting that colleagues in 2016 supported both Clinton and Trump but did not reflect those views on the job. Strzok said he could not answer any questions about the ongoing investigation based on advice from the FBI's general counsel.
Strzok, who has already spoken to the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees behind closed doors, is expected to testify publicly before the panels Thursday. Trump didn't do anything wrong, it's just one giant witch hunt! "It's a Democrat Con Job!"
"So that's why we sent the marshals to her house, to serve the subpoena", he explained.
"The idea that she was willing to come voluntarily and this is all about document review that she's had the ability to review for seven months - many of which she wrote, by the way - it just does not hold water", Meadows said, complaining that a U.S. Marshal had to deliver Page the subpoena early in the morning.
