Graham Blocks House Resolution on Release of Mueller Report

Graham Blocks House Resolution on Release of Mueller Report

Today, will be available for Americans to review the transcript of Peter Strzok during his interview with the Judiciary Committee.

The FBI is investigating the private server Hillary Clinton used while Secretary of State and whether Clinton or her aides broke any laws in their handling of classified information.

Graham made the remarks in response to a Democrat-backed resolution that passed in the House unanimously earlier in the day, which calls for any final report in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation to be made public.

In a statement Thursday, Strzok attorney Aitan Goelman said his client welcomed the release of the transcript. Lynch said a team of career members of the Justice Department and FBI will present her with recommendations on how to proceed once the investigation has concluded and that she plans to accept the guidance. A report in the New York Post states a number of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents believe a deal was struck and that an agreement was made not to prosecute Clinton.

Strzok waged a similar defense during a contentious public hearing in July of previous year. Both interviews took place last summer.

Smollett returned to the small screen Thursday night on Empire , but his future on the Fox show remains up in the air. Smollett also was in court Tuesday for a hearing to determine whether a judge should allow cameras in court.

The Strzok testimony, which is from June 2018, is creating a buzz on social media and appears to offer more insight into the FBI's activities during the 2016 presidential election season.

President Trump called out Justice Department over its possible mishandling of the email investigation in a tweet Wednesday.

The transcript shows Strzok was asked about decisions made during the Clinton probe, including then-FBI Director James B. Comey's efforts to draft a memo explaining his rationale for not prosecuting Clinton in advance of interviewing her. Strzok said he was aware of no similar effort to draft a memo explaining a potential decision to charge Clinton ahead of her interview. "And equally, if they aren't guilty of anything, that's also important", Strzok said.

Asked in general terms whether he had "ever been part of the FBI's efforts to infiltrate a US political campaign" or "been part of an effort to put a spy in a USA political campaign", Strzok said no.
