Video: King Suggests Subpoenaing Scandalous Strzok's Secret Texts
Tells Strzok: “It’s not possible, under oath, to tell the American people that there’s not bias. The evidence of bias is replete in the evidence that we have.”
Washington, D.C.- Congressman Steve King releases the following video of his participation in the Committee on the Judiciary and the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform's Joint Hearing on "Oversight of FBI and DOJ Actions Surrounding the 2016 Election: Testimony by FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok.” During his questioning, Congressman King grilled Peter Strzok over the bias he repeatedly displayed towards the President in numerous derogatory e-mails and texts written during 2016 and 2017.
At the conclusion of his questioning of the witness, Congressman King made an important suggestion to the Judiciary Committee chairman, Bob Goodlatte. King suggested that the Committee subpoena text messages that Mr. Strzok has not made public. King believes that Strzok, who has been allowed to determine for himself which of his text messages are relevant to the investigation, is sitting on work related e-mails that will reveal additional examples of pro-Clinton, anti-Trump bias expressed by a key FBI figure involved in both the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal and in the current Mueller investigation.
“It’s not possible, under oath, to tell the American people that there’s not bias. The evidence of bias is replete in the evidence that we have.”
Strzok appeared before the two committees today to discuss whether his actions in each investigation were irrevocably tainted by the bias he has repeatedly shown towards not only President Donald Trump, but also towards the Americans who supported President Trump's campaign. Notably, Strzok’s scandalous anti-Trump animus was made evident in a series of derogatory e-mail and text message exchanges he exchanged with FBI attorney Lisa Page, with whom he was engaged in an adulterous affair. Strzok has testified he never expected these messages to be made public.
