Disgraced — and despicable — FBI Agent Peter Strzok is saying that he’ll go before Congress and testify and that he won’t plead the fifth in order avoid incriminating questions.
Strzok is at the heart of both the Hillary Clinton email scandal investigation and the investigation into President Trump concerning possible collusion with Russia. It’s important to note the investigation into Trump hasn’t produced a single piece of tangible evidence that he was involved with Russia to help win the 2016 election.
However, much evidence has been unearthed that reveals the depth of corruption running rampant in the FBI, exposing both former Director James Comey and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for leaking unauthorized information to the media.
Peter Strzok’s lawyer told Congressional leaders, in an official letter issued Sunday, that his client won’t fight any Congressional subpoena, according to CNN.
Last week, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte told reporters that his committee had begun the process of forcing Strzok to testify, having learned that Strzok, who expressed his displeasure with a potential Trump administration in emails to his workplace paramour, was closer to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s misuse of a private email server than the FBI had previously disclosed.Trending:
Strzok’s lawyer told the committee that his client is willing to testify, to “let the American people see who he is.” His lawyer claims Strzok has no intention of running from the committee, and that the subpoena is not necessary. He “intends to voluntarily appear and testify before your committee and any other Congressional committee that invites him,” the letter says.
Strzok has become a central figure in a Republican investigation into whether the FBI’s Russia prove has political tinges. During his time at the FBI, Strzok apparently cultivated a romantic relationship with one of his coworkers. The pair sent amorous texts back and forth but also discussed the Presidential election and their desire to see Hillary Clinton prevail over Donald Trump. Strzok was eventually removed from the probe after his texts were discovered.
Several other FBI officials have come forward to testify that Strzok was super close to the Clinton investigation, which has caused many to wonder if his political affiliations and beliefs may have had a negative impact on that probe.
At the end of the day, this man is proof that there are systemic issues of corruption infecting the highest level of our government, posing a dangerous threat to our liberty and way of life.
When it comes to being part of a law enforcement agency, it’s critical that individuals leave their personal politics at the door and approach each investigation as objectively as possible, desiring to see the principles of truth and justice upheld through the application of the law to all people.
Hopefully this man will pay some heavy consequences for his actions, being made an example out of for other agents who might be following a similar path, providing a warning for them to change course.
