Republicans, Democrats spar at hearing over FBI's handling of Clinton probe

Nunes vows ‘hell to pay’ if Russia probe docs not turned over

An FBI agent who criticized then-presidential candidate Donald Trump in text messages in 2016 was taken to task by Republicans at a U.S. Congress hearing on Tuesday, while his lawyer said he was recently escorted out of the FBI building.

Strzok "wants the chance to clear his name and tell his story", Goelman told The Washington Post on Sunday. "We'll stop it", Strzok replied.

"When asked about this text message, Strzok stated that he did not specifically recall sending it, but that he believed that it was meant to reassure Page that Trump would not be elected, not to suggest that he would do something to impact the investigation", the report said. In addition to Strzok and Page, the report identifies anti-Trump text messages from FBI employees referred to as FBI Attorney 2, FBI Agent 1, and FBI Agent 5.

"Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Andrew Wiseman, all of these agents would have been better off working for George Soros or MSNBC rather than the upper echelons of the FBI running both investigations with the amount of bias they had", Harrington said. "Right?!" the lawyer, Lisa Page, wrote to Strzok. Strzok has become a special target of President Trump, who has used the texts to question the Russian Federation investigation. In late September, agents in the FBI's New York Field Office had discovered emails potentially relevant to the case on a laptop of disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner (D), but the agents investigating Clinton did not seek a search warrant to access the messages until late the next month. Even former FBI Director James Comey, who Trump fired, said he understood the president's concerns.

Hurdles facing parents and children separated at US border
Former Trump senior adviser Steve Bannon said the president is emphasizing the policies that brought him to the White House. The focus has shifted to a new plan to keep children in detention longer than now permitted, but with their parents.

On a related note, Strzok is willing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee or any other congressional committee without immunity and would not invoke his Fifth Amendment rights in response to questions. "It was about communicating about classified topics on that system when those topics have to be done on a classified system", Comey said.

Democrats lambasted their GOP colleagues for disregarding what they said was a more pressing problem for the country: the Trump administration's move to separate migrant families at the border and detain children apart from their parents.

Schiff offered the Federal Bureau of Investigation official a closed-door interview that would cover unclassified and classified matters, parts of which could then be released in an unclassified portion of the transcript if Strzok agrees.
