Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) revealed to Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro Saturday evening that the House Judiciary Committee will subpoena FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, lawyer Lisa Page, and demoted Justice Department official Bruce Ohr along with his wife and former Fusion GPS employee Nellie Ohr “in their ongoing inquiry into claims of bias against President Donald Trump.”
This video comes from Judge Jeanine:
A Republican on the House judiciary committee said Saturday he’s gotten a commitment from committee chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) to subpoena top officials at the FBI and Justice Department in their ongoing inquiry into claims of bias against President Donald Trump.
Republicans have zeroed in on deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, top counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, FBI attorney Lisa Page, former associate deputy attorney general Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie, who reportedly worked for Fusion GPS, the firm that compiled opposition research on Trump in 2016.
“Chairman Goodlatte has told us he is going to subpoena those individuals,” said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), in an appearance on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”
News of the imminent subpoenas comes amid Fox News publishing a portion of the approximately 10,000 texts messages sent between FBI agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page. Among the messages is an exchange revealing Strzok and Page discussed an ‘insurance policy,’ against a Trump presidency.
The kicker? Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe may have not only been privy to the conversation, but a part of it.
The discussion took place in his office.
Justice Department official Bruce G. Ohr popped up on House investigator’s radar after it was reported he was demoted over contacts with Fusion GPS, the shady opposition research firm behind the discredit’Trump dossier.’ Fox News‘ James Rosen and Jake Gibson reported the wife Bruce G. Ohr worked for the opposition research firm during the 2016 presidential election.
