Grassley: Trump should 'stay out of' decision for new Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director

Russian Infiltration

While discussing the text messages of two bureau agents formerly working on the FBI's probe of Russian election interference, right-wing radio host and Outnumbered guest-host Kevin Jackson said he hopes the Senate Judiciary Committee presses deputy FBI chief Andrew McCabe on whether certain texts point to a specific intent, "whether it was an assassination attempt or whatever".

Schiff declined to comment on McCabe's testimony Tuesday.

McCabe postponed a scheduled interview with the House Intelligence panel last week.

Democrats have defended McCabe, criticizing those calling for his removal.

Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican leading the House Intelligence Committee's Russian Federation investigation, said he still has confidence in McCabe as deputy director. Later, McCabe would help oversee the Clinton email investigation. He struck language suggesting Clinton had violated federal law from former FBI Director James Comey's July 2016 statement exonerating Clinton of official wrongdoing.


"These text messages prove what we all suspected: High-ranking FBI officials involved in the Clinton investigation were personally invested in the outcome of the election, and clearly let their strong political opinions cloud their professional judgment", Goodlatte said at a House hearing with Rosenstein in December.

Several committees on Capitol Hill, including the ones Gowdy and Goodlatte chair, have demanded interviews and documents from Strzok following that revelation.

McCabe, who worked closely with both Strzok and Page, has also come under fire because of those texts.

Representative Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and Representative Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, are conducting a joint review of the FBI's handling of the Clinton investigation.

Strzok later worked for Special Counsel Robert Mueller as part of the investigation into Russian efforts to interfere in the US election and ties between Russian officials and the Trump campaign.
