15 Minutes Of Hell! House Committee Threatens Peter Strzok With Contempt
The threat on Thursday came after House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-.S.C., asked Strzok to answer how many people the FBI interviewed in the first week of the bureau’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“Congressman, I would very much like to answer, the counsel of the FBI […] have directed me not to answer any questions related to Russia,” Strzok said.
Strzok was involved in the launch of the Russia investigation in 2016 and was then was briefly detailed to special counsel Robert Mueller’s team. Mueller took over the investigation in May 2017.
Goodlatte said at the end of Thursday’s hearing, he will move to have Strzok recalled and held in contempt of Congress.
