Rep. DeSantis: Strzok Is 'Walking Into a Buzzsaw' After Being Subpoenaed to Testify
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) said that Peter Strzok has done more damage than any other modern-day FBI agent because of his anti-Trump conduct.
Strzok was subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee to appear before Congress next week regarding findings found in the Justice Department inspector general's long-anticipated report on the Clinton email scandal.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded that the FBI's handling of the Clinton and Russia investigations was not motivated by political bias, though he singled out former FBI Director James Comey for harsh criticism and referred five other bureau employees for potential disciplinary action.
Most notably, Horowitz found that anti-Trump text messages between Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page "potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations."
"I think he's walking into a buzzsaw because his conduct in this Trump-Russia investigation and in the Hillary investigation was connected to his anti-Trump [and] pro-Hillary bias," DeSantis said on "Fox & Friends."
He called it "the worst nightmare" to have a law enforcement official wield governmental "counter-intelligence powers" based on bias.
Strzok, through his attorney, had previously said he'd be willing to testify before Congress about his actions.
The text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page showed that Strzok vowed to “stop” Trump from being elected.
Strzok's appearance before Congress will be closed, Fox News has learned.
