NYDN Wibbitz - July 12, 2018

FBI agent’s testimony began with a shouting match between Democrats and GOP lawmakers When FBI Agent Peter Strzok was asked how many people he questioned during the Russia probe… He responded with, "As you know the counsel of the FBI have directed me not to answer any questions about ongoing investigations" This caused the Chair of the House Judiciary Committee Bob Goodlatte to threaten Strzok with contempt… Which resulted in a commotion among Democrats, including Rep.

Bonnie Watson Coleman accusing the GOP of "harassment" of Strzok Goodlatte later claimed that Strzok was "under subpoena," which the FBI agent responded with "I do not believe I am here under subpoena" When this party feud stopped, Strzok did answer questions about his anti-Trump text messages with Lisa Page He responded that the message "in no way suggested that I or the FBI would take any action" to intervene with the democratic process.
