Kirsters Baish| Anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok was subpoenaed last week. He was told that he would have to appear on Wednesday for a deposition in front of the House Judiciary Committee. It seemed that Strzok appeared in front of the Committee willingly just so he could evade the subpoena. His deposition was a closed-door deposition.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte said Wednesday evening in an appearance on Fox News that, “Unfortunately the FBI counsel in the room has instructed Mr. Strzok not to answer many, many questions.”
“We’ll be raising questions with the FBI and the Department of Justice why it is that their Counsel is instructing Mr. Strzok not to answer questions,” Goodlatte said.
Bob Goodlatte stated that the FBI Counsel who told Strzok to refuse to answer important questions is “inappropriate” and “not helpful” in their investigation.

Representative Ron DeSantis was in attendance at Strzok’s deposition. He explained to investigative journalist Sara Carter on Wednesday that “It was a waste—Strzok is full of it and he kept hiding behind [the] classified information excuse.”
Peter Strzok also stated during the interview that he did not have any political bias and “his text exchanges were intimate exchanges between friends”
Representative Meadows doesn’t believe it for a second.
CNN reporter, Manu Raju stated that agent Strzok is still being questioned within the House. The FBI agent is set to attend a classified session this evening in order to speak about the Russia investigation.
Peter Strzok, who came in at 10am, is still being grilled in House. He’s expected to go to classified session tonight to discuss Russia probe. GOP says they’ve learned new things, Dems dismiss it. “Mr. Strzok is saying the same things he's said over and over again," Cummings said
