Trump targets FBI's Peter Strzok, James Comey

FBI agent removed from Russia probe for anti-Trump texts says he’s willing to testify before Congress

FBI Agent Peter Strzok Offers To Testify Before Congress

Strzok's conduct was criticized by the Justice Department's inspector general in a long-awaited report released last week.

He also said he has "more information" about the alleged alterations but, thus far, has not provided any details.

Strzok, a seasoned counterintelligence agent, was a lead agent on the investigation into whether Hillary Clinton illegally mishandled classified information through her use of a private email server while secretary of state.

Strzok, an Army veteran, previously served on the Hillary Clinton email probe. Having failed to stop Trump through his investigations, he now wants to use the House Judiciary Committee as a political springboard to raise accusations that his own investigation apparently couldn't prove or substantiate.

Democrats accused the Republicans of trying to distract from or undermine the Mueller investigation by focusing on a few employees who were biased.

The news comes in the wake of the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) report that did not draw a favorable conclusion about Strzok.

Uruguay vs Saudi Arabia
His pace and drive towards the goal will be a key asset for the side, should Saudi Arabia come away with a positive result. That puts them in a must-win situation against Uruguay , favourites in Group A.

Strzok, who was booted from special counsel Robert Mueller's team after sending anti-Trump text messages, was forced out of the building Friday, CNN reported.

As part of their investigations, Republicans have requested more than a million documents.

Mueller is a Republican, as is Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, who is overseeing the probe. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive topic. The Justice Department's inspector general had previously told lawmakers privately that he will review the handling of the memos, according to people familiar with the matter. Nunes has demanded multiple sensitive documents as he has investigated, among other things, whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act when prosecutors and agents in 2016 applied for and received a secret warrant to monitor the communications of a Trump campaign associate.

At Monday's hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Horowitz made clear that his office still has unfinished business regarding the FBI's Clinton investigation.

Goelman said that if asked to testify, Strzok "intends to answer any question put to him, and he intends to defend the integrity of the Clinton email investigation, the Russian Federation collusion investigation to the extent that that's a topic, and his own integrity".
