Lisa Page Grilled By House Lawmakers

Rep. Gohmert went after FBI agent Peter Strzok for cheating on his wife throughout the investigations into Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. He repeatedly told lawmakers he was following the instructions of Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyers in declining to answer.

"I think that at this point, public testimony is not on the horizon", said Meadows, adding that a public hearing is "not something I would advocate for".

"We know Peter Strzok is a bad guy", the California Republican told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" about the agent who at one time had been in charge of the investigations into Hillary Clinton's email server and that of now-President Donald Trump and Russian Federation. Strzok, a seasoned counterintelligence agent, helped lead both investigations but has since been reassigned to human resources.

Despite the president facing about a dozen allegations of sexual harassment - many of them allegedly occurring while Trump was in one of his three marriages - social conservatives in Congress have failed to take him to task at anywhere close to the level that Gohmert did Strzok.

Repulican Trey Gowdy of SC said Strzok exhibited "textbook bias" and in his mind had Clinton "winning the White House" before he finished her investigation.

Republican Rep. Darrell Issa made Strzok read some of his texts aloud, including some with profane language.

"Let me be clear, unequivocally and under oath: not once in my 26 years of defending my nation did my personal opinions impact any official action I took", he is expected to say.

During their extramarital affair, Strzok and Page exchanged thousands of text messages to one another on their Federal Bureau of Investigation phones - including numerous anti-Trump comments. Gowdy said, pointing out the pro-Hillary bias among other members of the investigative team who weren't booted from it. "The suggestion that I'm in some dark chamber somewhere in the Federal Bureau of Investigation would somehow cast aside all of these procedures, all of these safeguards, and somehow be able to do this is astounding to me ― it simply couldn't happen". He also briefly served on special counsel Robert Mueller's team, investigating Trump's ties to Russian Federation. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, D-New Jersey, said, "I have never seen my colleagues so out of control, so angry".

FBI Director Chris Wray has said employees who were singled out for criticism by the inspector general have been referred to internal disciplinary officials.

Page appeared Friday, declining to speak to reporters as she entered the committee spaces, after House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican, had threatened to hold her in contempt for defying a subpoena earlier in the week.
