Goodlatte: Peter Strzok's Answers About Anti-Trump Texts 'Not Believable'
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) reacted to a closed-door hearing his committee held with FBI Agent Peter Strzok.
Goodlatte said Strzok's FBI lawyers had instructed him "not to answer many, many questions."
"That’s going to be a serious problem moving forward so we will be raising questions with the FBI and with the Department of Justice about why it is that their counsel is instructing Mr. Strzok not to answer questions," Goodlatte said.
He said the hearing went more than ten hours.

Goodlatte said Strzok answered questions regarding what he called the "hateful nature" of texts between Strzok and the agent's mistress, Lisa Page.
"His explanations for... those questions about that hateful attitude are not believable," Goodlatte said.
