Reckoning: Peter Strzok to Appear on Capitol Hill

Anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok will be making a long-awaited appearance before two House Committees on Wednesday for ‘interviews’ concerning his role (and bias) in the Hillary Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations.

According to a Judiciary Committee aide, a public hearing will be following ‘soon’.

Which may come after Strzok and the Swamp get their stories straight for the cameras.

The problem is there’s almost no way to Strzok’s defense will jive with what Comey and McCabe have testified.

It’s a classic prisoner’s dilemma, and they all may become prisoners in the end regardless.

Here’s more from Hotair…

FBI agent Peter Strzok will be on Capitol Hill tomorrow to meet with two House Committees. Politico reports that an open-session, like the one proposed Monday by President Trump, is expected to follow sometime soon:

Strzok — whose role in the investigations of Hillary Clinton’s email use and the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia was one focus of a recent Justice Department watchdog report — will meet with the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees. The interview will be held behind closed doors, but is set to be followed “soon” by a public hearing, according to a Judiciary Committee aide…

Strzok’s anti-Trump text messages, which were sent to an FBI colleague throughout 2016 and 2017, have become the centerpiece of Republican claims that the FBI’s Trump campaign probe was politically motivated. While the DOJ’s inspector general report concluded Strzok appeared to show willingness to use his official capacity to hurt Trump politically, it didn’t weigh in on whether his opinions affected the opening of the Trump-Russia investigation. DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has indicated he is still reviewing Strzok’s role in the Russia investigation.

The IG’s report did conclude that there was no evidence political animus toward Trump affected any official FBI action taken during the Clinton investigation.
