Goodlatte: FBI Lawyers Instructed Strzok Not To Answer

FBI lawyers instructed Peter Strzok during a congressional deposition on Wednesday not to answer “many, many questions” about his involvement in the Hillary Clinton and Russia investigations, said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte.

“Unfortunately the FBI counsel in the room has instructed Mr. Strzok not to answer many, many questions, and that’s going to be a serious problem moving forward,” Goodlatte told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum. “So we will be raising questions with the FBI and the Department of Justice about why it is that their counsel is instructing Mr. Strzok not to answer questions.”

Strzok, the former deputy chief of counterintelligence at the FBI, testified for more than 10 hours about his roles in the Clinton and Trump-Russia investigations. He was also pressed about anti-Trump text messages he exchanged with his mistress, a former FBI lawyer named Lisa Page.

The People are finally learning that these massive government agencies (FBI, CIA, ATF, so on) do not work for them. They have private rich bosses. International banking families, the richest people in the world.

The US government is a criminal syndicate that extorts money from the People and exerts control over them.

5:53 How would you change things? Do you think that is what President Trump is trying to do.

it was so funny how the ignoramuses that call themselve the democrat party were saying when it was first announced that strzok would testify and not take the 5th. They jumped up and day claiming how this was proof strzok had NOTHING to hide. Anyone with 2 working brain cells (this excludes the whole democrat party) knew he would just refuse to answer citing the "ongoing investigation" excuse.

The pertinent question is why the FBI was providing him personal counsel?

Much of this line of questioning touched on his voluntary actions, those of his fellow employee mistress, and perhaps on directions from Comey and McCabe.

Peel the onion; drain the swamp!

Why can these crooks not be charged with no immunity and put in prison like they are illegally doing to these others who ae being pressured. Mueller included, since he is one of the main culprits. Mueller has proven he is pursuing anything he can connect to Trump which is outside the original complaint that was being investigated. They should be put in a normal prison and see how they cope with the ones they falsely imprison by entrapment. Strzok is claiming he cannot openly testify in open hearings since it will entrapment. So, what did the FBI and him use in the investigation. Tide has turned on them and they don't like the tactic now.
