House Republicans to Question FBI Agent About Anti-Trump Texts

'I am on Air Force One flying to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and hear reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are getting cold feet on testifying about the Rigged Witch Hunt headed by 13 Angry Democrats and people that worked for Obama for 8 years.

"It appears that Lisa Page has something to hide", Goodlatte said.

During 2016, Page and Strzok were having an affair while they were both involved in the politically charged investigation of Clinton, Trump's Democratic election rival, for misuse of classified materials on her private email server.

Jeffress said she received a message from the Department of Justice at 11 p.m. on Tuesday night granting Page's request to review documents related to the investigation.

Minutes before he leveled his attack on Twitter against Strzok, the president also tore into Page for her reported plans to defy a subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee. If she wants to come and plead the Fifth, that's her choice.

The text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page while they worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the probe into President Donald Trump and Russian Federation have been cited by Trump and his allies as key evidence that the FBI's investigation is biased against the President.

It was a similar tale in the fourth set where the South African broke for 3-2 only to hand the break straight back. Isner in particularly started to appear tired at the set wore on.

A previously unreported letter obtained by CNN shows that negotiations have, in fact, been ongoing, but the decision by members of the House Judiciary Committee to sign on to an April 2018 referral of Page - along with several other former FBI and Justice Department officials, and Clinton - for a criminal investigation, raised the stakes.

"There is no basis for claims that Lisa has anything to hide or is unwilling to testify", she said, adding that the Oversight and Judiciary committees' "bullying tactics here are unnecessary". Democrats have strongly objected to the GOP-led investigation, saying it is an attempt to undermine Mueller's probe and sway public opinion against investigators. Following that report and the firing of Comey by Trump, the Department of Justice Inspector General launched an investigation.

In a second tweet, Trump wrote: "How can the Rigged Witch Hunt proceed when it was started, influenced and worked on, for an extended period of time, by former FBI Agent/Lover Peter Strzok?". When he returns to Capitol Hill for Thursday's hearing he will be speaking publicly about the messages for the first time. "Read his hate filled and totally biased Emails and the answer is clear!"

As the committees have investigated bias at the Justice Department, they have focused much of their ire on Strzok.

The move by Page's attorney was a rare moment of pushback, as Republicans and the President have continued to hold up Page and Strzok as Exhibit A of political bias infecting the nation's premier law enforcement agency.

The Judiciary Committee also held a contentious hearing June 28 with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
