FBI Agent Peter Strzok Welcomes Opportunity To Testify To Congress Will Not Plead the Fifth…

A letter from FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s attorney (presented below)  outlines his client’s joyful willingness to testify before any congressional committee that invites him, and welcomes the opportunity to clear his name.  According to the Washington Post:

(Via WaPo) Peter Strzok, who was singled out in a recent Justice Department inspector general report for the politically charged messages, would be willing to testify without immunity, and he would not invoke his Fifth Amendment rights in response to any question, his attorney, Aitan Goelman, said in an interview Sunday. Strzok has become a special target of President Trump, who has used the texts to question the Russia investigation.

Goelman said Strzok “wants the chance to clear his name and tell his story.”

“He thinks that his position, character and actions have all been misrepresented and caricatured, and he wants an opportunity to remedy that,” the lawyer said.

[…] Goelman said he had not discussed any dates with lawmakers on when Strzok might appear at a hearing.

[…] Goelman, who is with the firm Zuckerman Spaeder, wrote in a letter to Goodlatte that a subpoena would be “wholly unnecessary.”  (read more)

However, don’t get too excited…. remember, Peter Strzok is the primary witness in both the Trump-Russia investigation (ongoing Mueller probe), and the more recent OIG FISA Abuse/Campaign Spying investigation initiated by Michael Horowitz.

As such, dontchaknow, Mr Peter Strzok would have to politely refuse to answer questions about “ongoing investigations”, and could only testify issues specifically related to the Clinton-email probe which was the subject of the most recent IG report release.

And the administrative state, both inside government and outside government, have had over a year to assist Mr. Strzok in the coordination of his narrative and talking points.

Swampy.

    The one question i would ask Strzok is, “Lisa Page, has left you holding a big bag of crap through your texting, Is it believable she was not a back channel operative to the HRC machine? There are times in your text exchanges where arguably she pulled, or baited you back into fold, meaning on several accessions you expressed doubt and at those times her responces, if you where to apply hindsight, would seem to indicate a desire to continue to keep you committed?
    Can you expand apon the nature of this inquiry without invoking the 5th?

        If he is shown to answer any question untruthfully he will be terminated from employment as an FBI agent and lose enhanced LEO retirement coverage but retain a deferred civil service retirement at a much later date and lower amount.

        If he is untruthful in testimony or under questioning by investigators he can be prosecuted.
        He can currently be fired for a Hatch Act violation.

        He can currently be fired and possibly prosecuted for misuse of an official government communications device for personal and unauthorized purposes, his government issued cell phone.

    • The link for this Obama speech was provided by Qanon today. I despise Obama but I watched the entire speech (took one for the team) and it is clear that these lines were taken out of context. Before Q non-followers attack his credibility, it is also clear the Q knows the video was a “fake.” For instance, in a subsequent post he provides a link to the entire speech so that context is provided. Notice the misspelling of Bilderberg. Q followers know that spelling errors always have significance.

      There are some great researchers out there attempting to understand why Q would link to the misleading version. In essence, some are suggesting Q is trolling Hussein. Further, the consensus is that Hussein encoded messages in his speeches and the “fake” video represents the hidden message Hussein was sending out to other black hats.

      So there it is. I am not attempting to sway anyone towards any particular way of thinking. I just thought it was important to provide the larger picture. I’m a firm believer that we must research and critically think for ourselves. I’m still mulling this one over in my own mind.

I even know of one individual bought the Bank his enemy (who cheated him in a large business deal) had his mortgage at…then after buying the Bank (officially) began to harass his enemy for payments that were a day late. Eventually the mortgage was called and was closed out. His enemy lost his house. There is more than one way to ‘Get Even’.

    Strzok and Obama are 100% blood related. His rise through the Obama network was meteoric. Now you know why he has not been fired; now you know why he is willing to testify. He is untouchable! None of this is anything but window dressing until they Jail Strzok!
