DEVELOPING: Peter Strzok Gives Closed-Door Deposition to House Judiciary Committee
Trump-hating FBI official Peter Strzok was issued a subpoena last week and ordered to appear before the House Judiciary Committee for a deposition Wednesday.
Strzok appeared voluntarily and gave a closed-door deposition.
Last week, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte revealed a subpoena had been prepared for Peter Strzok and was ‘on the way.’
Chairman Goodlatte followed through and issued a subpoena to Peter Strzok on Friday demanding he appear before the House Judiciary Committee next Wednesday morning for a deposition.
As a way to evade the subpoena, Strzok appeared voluntarily.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) headed over to Strzok’s deposition to ask him questions.
Jordan tweeted: Heading to the Peter Strzok deposition. We have lots of questions that need answers.

Jim Jordan wants to know why Strzok was in London and who he spoke to. ‘Did he meet with dossier author Christopher Steele?’ asked Jordan.
Peter Strzok opened the Russia investigation on July 31st. The next day he flew to London. Why was he in London? Who did he talk to? Did he meet with Christopher Steele, the author of the salacious dossier? https://t.co/FvEHmEGBnE

President Trump blasted Peter Strzok and the other hating frauds at the FBI and DOJ this week, saying the hearing should be shown to the public on live television and NOT a closed door session.
The hearing of Peter Strzok and the other hating frauds at the FBI & DOJ should be shown to the public on live television, not a closed door hearing that nobody will see. We should expose these people for what they are – there should be total transparency!

Peter Strzok was escorted out of the FBI building two weeks ago, however; he is still employed in Human Resources.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a radio interview last Thursday Strzok lost his security clearance.
We recently found out Peter Strzok sent his mistress Lisa Page a text message saying “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming President.
This text message from Strzok was sent to Page 9 days after “Crossfire Hurricane” was opened and 6 days before the “insurance policy” text.
In another damning text exchange between the FBI lovebirds 6 days after Strzok said he’ll “stop” Trump from becoming President, was a discussion about an “insurance policy” to keep Donald Trump out of office.
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office…that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected…but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok text messaged to Page in an Aug. 15, 2016 exchange, referring to Andrew McCabe.
“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok added.

Editor’s note: This post has been updated to clarify that although Peter Strzok was issued a subpoena by Chairman Bob Goodlatte, he voluntarily appeared to the deposition Wednesday morning as a way to evade the subpoena.
