He may even have been involved in her freaky exoneration by then-FBI Director James Comey: Reports say Strzok changed Comey's written characterization of Clinton's actions in the email scandal from "grossly negligent" - the words that would have formed a legal basis to charge her with crimes - to the equally serious but legally harmless "extremely careless". Most GOP lawmakers believe that Clinton got off too easy, while Democrats say that Comey's public pronouncements about Clinton's case helped cost her the election. "There is no difference-the only difference is they didn't want to use the wording in the statute". "Any Congressional oversight related to either one of these topics is not credible without also examining the other".

The Times said Strzok was "reassigned this summer from Mr. Mueller's investigation to the FBI's human resources department, where he has been stationed since".

How is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act?

Over the weekend, Representative Devin Nunes, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, has directed his staff to write up the legislation that would hold the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the contempt of Congress. Nunes cited media reports that the Special Counsel Robert Mueller had removed Strzok from his investigative team after discovering that he and the Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, his alleged mistress, had exchanged politically charged texts disparaging President Trump and supporting Hillary Clinton.

Grassley complained that Feinstein and other committee Democrats won't support his efforts to compel Fusion GPS to provide more documents and testimony to the committee about its role in hiring former British spy Christopher Steele to produce the infamous dossier alleging ties - some of them salacious - between Trump and the Russians.

Trump Jr. claimed attorney-client privilege on Wednesday when asked about speaking with his father over the Russian Federation meeting, and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., argued that should not have been allowed.

That means, presumably, that the flaw was live for several weeks in current versions of iOS and watchOS before being addressed. Apple usually pushes out security updates for its various devices and software on the same day, but not this time.

Reports have surfaced suggesting Comey might have drafted a statement exonerating Clinton prior to the completion of the investigation.

Rhee is the third member of the Mueller team this week who has been shown to be brazenly partisan.

Typically, committees produce reports detailing their conclusions at the end of an investigation. "I think it's a shame".

Gowdy continued: "He is super important and people have a right to know whether agents are biased one way or another". "I don't want the drama of a contempt of Congress floor fight".

For the Republican Party, Donald Trump's P.R. strategy could prove just as critical to maintaining control of the White House as his legal strategy. Nothing happened to her. Flynn lied and they destroyed his life. "Based on what's occurred with Flynn and some of the reports over the past week, I'm not overly concerned that we have to move quickly", Senator Thom Tillis, who introduced a bill with Democratic Senator Chris Coons to shield Mueller earlier this year, told the Post.
