New Strzok, page texts suggest that the coordination in Russia probe
Strzok text refers to the inter-agency meeting.
Former FBI lawyer, Lisa page appears likely in a closed-door deposition before the house judiciary and oversight bodies on Wednesday, just a day before the former office-colleague and lover Peter Strzok is set to testify publicly about the beginning of the Russia-investigation.
A Congress source told Fox News on Monday that the judiciary Committee issued a subpoena to side, but noted that it was unclear whether the side of the lawyers and of the Committee in advance would be an agreement, the Wednesday morning interview, so that their testimony would be as a volunteer.
Lawyers for Strzok, who has his private interview last month, and the Committee, a similar arrangement after he was subpoenaed.
Page is expected to be in front of a barbecue in the common interview. For months, the lawyer caught in the crosshairs of the investigation in the Russian interference and possible collusion with Trump ally of the campaign, 2016 presidential elections, amid revelations that she and Strzok exchanged hundreds of politically charged, anti-Trump-text-messages.
FBI STRZOK ‘ARROGANT’ AND ‘SKEPTICS’ IN-HOUSE INTERVIEW, BUT REGRETS SEND ANTI-TRUMP LYRICS
Page served in the FBI office of general counsel, and was also a short detail in the year 2017 on Special Counsel Robert Müller to the team. Page, the FBI announced last may.
Page and Strzok returned to the spotlight last month, after the release of Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz of the long-awaited report on the FBI handling of the Clinton-E-Mail investigation.
The report contained a new SMS-message, between the two, where Strzok swore, “stop,” Donald Trump for President.
The inspector general report noted that he was particularly concerned about text messages between Strzok and page “may be displayed, or created the appearance that the investigative decisions were influenced by bias or improper considerations.”
The inspector General found no evidence that anti-Trump bias among several FBI agents a significant influence on prosecutorial decisions in the Clinton E-Mail probe.
Last month, Strzok interviewed, before the same committees.
“Strzok was smug, defiant, and laughed a lot of issues,” a congressional source told Fox News, after the interview. The source also said Strzok refused to answer a few questions on the advice of the Council.
Another source said, Fox News, Strzok, ” said he regretted the sending of the texts.”
The discovery of the anti-Trump exchanged messages with page, ultimately, got him assigned to boot from Müller’s team, and new to the FBI office of human resources. But in the last month, Strzok was accompanied by his FBI office and lost his security clearance.
Strzok is set to testify before the House Judiciary and oversight bodies on Thursday to a public hearing and is expected to probe-to-face questions from lawmakers on his involvement in the start-up of the FBI-Russia.
Strzok’s lawyer, Aitan Goelman, urged the committees to the publication of a copy of Strzok closed-door interview to the public.
The inspector general last month, confirmed he was investigating whether the anti-Trump bias of Strzok takes into account the introduction of the FBI-Russia investigation.
