REPUBLICANS PREPARE FOR WAR WITH FBI, DOJ: TO FILE CONTEMPT ACTION AGAINST ANTI-TRUMP BIAS
In addition to the threat of contempt, Strzok is also facing an internal review for his role in the investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified information on her private email server.
Five weeks ago, House Speaker Paul Ryan accused the DOJ and FBI of “stonewalling” the House Intelligence Committee’s wide-ranging subpoena for all pertinent information about how the largely unsubstantiated “Trump dossier” played into the DOJ’s decision to launch the infamous Trump collusion investigation. At the time, the speaker said the agency was preparing to turn over the information requested by the committee, but despite his assurances, the promised documents never materialized.

And before that, Strzok helped lead the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.
