President, Trump claimed on Tuesday that “the FBI’s lover” Peter Strzok and Lisa page about apparitions always “cold feet” prior to the scheduled Capitol Hill this week, amid conflicting reports of whether or not they are displayed.

The two officers, previously to the Russian probe, faced by Congress and the internal control anti-Trump-text-messages. FBI officials Strzok, so far, is still expected to testify in a public house hearing on Thursday. However, a congressional source suggested that a former FBI lawyer-page may not show up for closed-door Wednesday deposition.

“I’m flying with Air Force One to the NATO and the hear reports that the FBI lover, Peter Strzok and Lisa page to get cold feet on to the testimony about the Rigged “witch hunt” under the guidance of 13 Angry Democrats and people for Obama for 8 years. Total Disgrace!” Trump tweeted from Air Force One, on the way to Brussels for a NATO summit, the kick-off of his four-country Europe tour.

I’m on Air Force One to fly to NATO and to hear reports that the FBI lover, Peter Strzok and Lisa page to get cold feet on to the testimony about the Rigged “witch hunt” under the guidance of 13 Angry Democrats and people for Obama for 8 years. Total Disgrace!

The appearances were scheduled before the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight Committee.

Page loaded was released from the judiciary Committee, for a closed-door deposition in front of the two committees on Wednesday at 10 a.m., A congressional source told Fox News that the committees are not sure whether the show-and their lawyers were hedging, and could potentially ignore your summons.

The source, though, said it was unclear whether the two sides could work out an agreement, so that their testimony would be as a volunteer. Lawyers for Strzok, who has his private interview last month, and the Committee came to a similar arrangement after he was subpoenaed.

Strzok is expected to testify in public, before both bodies on Thursday and will face questions from lawmakers on his involvement in the start-up of the FBI-Russia investigation. It is unclear at this point whether Strzok is also considering cancellation of his appearance.

Page could also interview to expect a grilling in your Committee. 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’s lawyer, Aitan Goelman, urged the committees to the publication of a copy of Strzok, the front of the 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.

Trump talk of the “13 Evil Democrats” is in terms of lawyers and investigators in Miller’s team. Thirteen of the 17 investigators have registered as Democrats. Mueller, though, said, a life-long Republican and served as FBI Director under former Republican President George W. Bush.
