House Intel Committee cuts deal with DOJ to uncover anti-Trump FBI agent’s texts and emails

It looks like America is about to find out the rest of the story when it comes to the severe anti-Trump bias of FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

On Thursday, a deal was reached between Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) to turn over text messages, documents, and even access to FBI witnesses relating to Strzok and his girlfriend and co-worker with whom he exchanged those text messages, Lisa Page, to the House Intelligence Committee, according to a letter from Nunes.

Although some of the messages between Strzok and Page were leaked to the press last year, revealing an extreme anti-Trump bias and a seeming willingness to do more than the law allows about it, the committee will reportedly now have access to about 9,500 other text messages between the two, making one wonder how the agents had any time to do actual work.

Nunes’s letter places the requested information as part of their ongoing inquiry into the infamous “Steele dossier.”

“The materials we are requesting are vital to the Committee’s investigation of potential abuses into intelligence and law enforcement agencies’ handling of the Christopher Steele dossier,” wrote the House Intelligence Committee chairman.

“The Committee is extremely concerned by indications that top U.S. Government officials who were investigating a presidential campaign relied on unverified information that was funded by the opposing political campaign and was based on Russian sources,” added Nunes, who also made it clear that one of the documents will be released only to the committee due to national security concerns.

Thursday’s announcement ended a months-long stalemate between the Nunes’ committee and the FBI, which reached a peak last week when the California congressman criticized the department’s “intransigence.”

“Unfortunately, DOJ/FBI’s intransigence with respect to the August 24 subpoenas is part of a broader pattern of behavior that can no longer be tolerated,” wrote Nunes. “At this point it seems the DOJ and FBI need to be investigating themselves.”
