Trump attacks his own Federal Bureau of Investigation in series of tweets

Trump attacks his own Federal Bureau of Investigation in series of tweets

Meanwhile, Mueller continues to lead the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, despite a complete lack of evidence that Russia interfered in the process in any way.

One of the most trusted FBI counterintelligence investigators, Strzok helped in leading the investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information on her private email account, and then played a major role in the investigation into links between President Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, reported New York Times.

During the Clinton investigation, Strzok was having an affair with a senior FBI lawyer named Lisa Page, the Post said.

It is still not known what Strzok mentioned in the text messages.

"By hiding from Congress, and from the American people, documented political bias by a key FBI head investigator for both the Russian Federation collusion probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI and DOJ engaged in a willful attempt to thwart Congress' constitutional oversight responsibility", Nunes said in a statement Saturday afternoon.




The department has already provided members of House leadership and the Intelligence Committee with "several hundred pages of classified documents" and multiple briefings - including whether any Federal Bureau of Investigation payments were made related to the dossier, and has cleared witnesses including McCabe and Strzok to testify, she said. Although Strzok's departure from the investigation was reported by ABC News in August, the reason behind the move was unclear until now. It said the office is "reviewing allegations involving communications between certain individuals, and will report its findings regarding those allegations promptly upon completion of the review of them".

Trump's legal team had been searching for potential conflicts of interests among Mueller's investigators, the Times and the Post reported in July. Republicans in the House of Representatives have put forward measures to limit the special counsel probe or have called for his ousting or resignation.

But Strzok was reassigned this summer from Mueller's investigation to the FBI's human resources department, where he has been stationed since. During a House Oversight Committee hearing in November, Inspector General Michael Horowitz said the probe was ongoing and that he expects to release the final report in March or April of 2018.

The Justice Department's Office of the Inspector General has been reviewing both the FBI's and Justice handling of the Clinton probe, which cleared the Mrs. Clinton of criminal wrongdoing.
