Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page to be interviewed by Congress this week

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page to be interviewed by Congress this week

As Gohmert went through his speaking time at a hearing on Thursday with the agent accused of anti-Trump bias, the Texas Republican sparred with another lawmaker, who called his statements a "disgrace". "So, I take great offense, and I take great disagreement to your assertion of what that was or wasn't". Strzok's testimony, under oath, is that Bruce Ohr provided information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation that included material compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele - the Russian dossier.

"I think that at this point, public testimony is not on the horizon", said Meadows, adding that a public hearing is "not something I would advocate for".

The official took part in the investigation regarding Hillary Clinton " s use of a private email server for official communications during her tenure as US Secretary of State and was involved in the Russian Federation probe, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, although he was taken off the case after his text exchange was revealed. Strzok was removed from the special counsel probe after the text messages were discovered a year ago, while Page had already left.

The move comes after Strzok refused to answer a question from Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy.

Democrats, however, agreed with the sentiment expressed by their colleague, California congressman Ted Lieu: "Let me start by saying, this is a stupid and ridiculous hearing".

Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay £3.6bn in talc asbestos cancer case
The company said the "multiple errors present in this trial were worse than those in the prior trials which have been reversed". The women claimed their ovarian cancer was caused by exposure to asbestos allegedly found in the baby powder.

"I don't give a damn what you appreciate, agent Strzok".

"I've talked to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents around the country", Gohmert continued, visibly upset. That occurred, the official said, when Gowdy pressed for more details of the use of confidential sources who had assisted the FBI in the initial stages of the investigation. "But", he said, "the thought of exposing that information never crossed my mind". In it, Strzok describes his reluctance to work on behalf of the special counsel, and that seemed to imply he didn't think there would be substantial findings of collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign team. But the report said it found no evidence of political bias in the FBI's decision not to pursue criminal charges against Clinton.

"To suggest we can parse down the shorthand like they're some contract for a auto is simply not consistent with my or most people's use of text messaging", Strzok said, practically yelling at Gowdy. Strzok is unique in that he sent a series of text messages to senior Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page insulting Trump, and these were later made public by the Department of Justice.

The Justice Department's inspector general has criticized Strzok and Page for creating the appearance of impropriety through the texts.

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page has been praised for her "cooperative" performance at a closed door congressional hearing on Friday, as some Republicans say her testimony confirmed their suspicions of bias.
