FBI’s Peter Strzok Agrees To Testify Before Congress

Politico reports:

Embattled FBI agent Peter Strzok has agreed to voluntarily testify before Congress, his attorney has told lawmakers, potentially fending off a subpoena for him to appear.

Strzok’s role in FBI investigations into both Hillary Clinton and President Donald Trump drew the attention of Republicans in Congress after the publication of text messages he had exchanged with an FBI attorney. In them, Strzok and attorney Lisa Page were critical of politicians including Trump.

“Special agent Strzok, who has been fully cooperative with the DOJ Office of the Inspector General, intends to voluntarily appear and testify before your committee and any other Congressional committee that invites him,” Aitan Goelman, Strzok’s lawyer, wrote in a letter dated Saturday to House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.).
