The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman has demanded the FBI turn over documents related to an agent who was removed from Robert Mueller’s special counsel team after an internal probe found he sent messages that showed possible bias for Hillary Clinton and against President Trump.
Sen. Charles Grassley wrote to FBI Director Chris Wray on Wednesday to ask that the bureau address a series of questions about counterintelligence investigator Peter Strzok. The deputy assistant director in the FBI’s counterterrorism division was removed both from that position and the Mueller team over the summer, and reassigned to the human resources division, after it was reported that he “engaged in communications demonstrating political bias while handling matters in two sensitive, high-profile investigations,” Mr. Grassley said.
He was also one of two agents who would eventually interview former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.[contentcards url=”https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/dec/6/senate-committee-texts-fbi-agent-peter-strzok/” target=”_blank”]
