(National Sentinel)Â Get A Warrant: Following the release of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s damning report regarding the FBI’s pathetic ‘investigation’ into Hillary’s handling of classified emails, we learned that Trump-hating FBI agent Peter Strzok once vowed to “stop” the president from winning the Oval Office.
In back-and-forth text messages between Strzok and his paramour, then-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, the two wrote:
PAGE: â€œ[Trumpâ€™s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!â€
STRZOK: â€œNo. No he wonâ€™t. Weâ€™ll stop it.â€
We didn’t know about that particular text exchange because Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein never released it to Congress, despiteÂ months of pressuring the DoJ forÂ all of Strzok’s texts.
After the damning new text exchange was released, Strzok said he’d be glad to testify before Congress. No problem!
Except that when he did, FBI lawyers kept advising him toÂ not answer probing questions.
So Congress decided to subpoena him and compel him to testify.Â Now, suddenly, Strzok doesn’t want to testify.
The Daily Caller reported:
Embattled FBI agent Peter Strzok may ignore a subpoena demanding his testimony before Congress July 10, his lawyer said Tuesday.
â€œMy client will testify soon, somewhere, sometime. We just got this subpoena today, so I donâ€™t know whether or not we are going to be testifying next Tuesday in front of these two particular House subcommittees,â€ Aitan Goelman, the attorney for Strzok,Â toldÂ CNNâ€™s Chris Cuomo Tuesday.
The House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform Committees subpoenaed Strzok on Tuesday to testify at a joint hearing hosted by the committees on July 10.Â
Strzok, who was a top FBI investigator on the Hillary Clinton email investigation as well as the Russia probe, appeared for a closed-door session before both committees June 27. He was quizzed over his involvement in both investigations as well as anti-Trump text messages he exchanged with his mistress, a former FBI attorney named Lisa Page.
Strzok served on Special Counsel Robert Muellerâ€™s team until July 2017, when his text messages were found. Republicans have zeroed in on the text messages, saying that Strzokâ€™s overt bias might have influenced his actions on the Clinton and Russia investigations.
Strzok told Page that â€œweâ€™ll stopâ€ Trump from becoming president in one Aug. 8, 2016 text.
Prior to the private session in late June, Goelman offered Strzok up for a public hearing, but the attorney retracted the offer over what he fears is â€œa trapâ€ set by House Republicans.
A “trap?” How ironic that Strzok fears being “trapped” by House Republicans after he and others within the Justice Department toÂ trap former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
