"Suffice to say it’s not a good look when lawyers representing the FBI are telling the central witness within a political conspiracy involving the FBI not to answer questions from congressional oversight.
House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte tells Martha MacCallum that FBI lawyers are instructing FBI Agent Peter Strzok not to answer questions from congress about the nature of his involvement within a DOJ/FBI conspiracy to stop a political candidate; and later to overthrow a presidency.
Additionally Chairman Goodlatte states the answers agent Strzok did give about his text messages was “not believable”.
*Note* at 9:00pm EDT the deposition is ongoing. They shifted into a classified setting at approximately 7:00pm. The non-classified deposition transcript is something I am very much looking forward to reading. Hopefully it will be released soon."
How is it possible that the Congressional FBI Oversight Committee ….. This is appalling.
Sack Wray. Sack Sessions. Both should be ordering the FBI to comply."
are in place so that these ‘departments’ do what the elected president (in the name of the people) want? Yes, the Oversight committee. And so what is the next logical step people?
When do you turn to your ‘elected’ voice at the very top, and ask something be done?"
"Concerned Virginian says:
Which FBI lawyers were/are telling Strzok not to answer questions? Which higher-ups ordered the lawyers to tell Strzok not to answer?"...

"Agent Peter Strzok’s attorney, Aitan Goelman, told House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) in a weekend letter that issuing a subpoena for his client was unnecessary. Strzok “has been fully cooperative with the DOJ Office of Inspector General” and “intends to voluntarily appear and testify before your committee and any other Congressional committee that invites him,” the lawyer reportedly wrote.
Strzok “wants the chance to clear his name and tell his story,” Goelman told The Washington Post on Sunday. “He thinks that his position, character and actions have all been misrepresented and caricatured, and he wants an opportunity to remedy that.”"
