Schiff: Peter Strzok May Have Information About the Russia investigation and Leaks from the FBI to Giuliani

‘He’s also important witness in terms of the interactions that James Comey had with the president’

EXCERPT:

BERMAN: "You are the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee which is why we see you so often, I think talking about the various investigations. I understand you now want Peter Strzok, who was the FBI agent who was actually marched out of the FBI and is clearly under investigation, the FBI agent who sent text message that we now know say that he would keep Donald Trump from getting elected. You want him to come testify before your committee. Why?"
SCHIFF: "Well, I think we -- there’s a lot that he could offer and he’s expressed a willingness to come to Congress and testify before the relevant committees. So there’s information and light he could certainly shed on the Russia investigation and what we’ve been able to learn about Russian plans and attentions in our last election, Russian coordinaion with the Trump campaign, the initiation of that investigation. I think he could shed a lot of important light on that. He’s also important witness in terms of the interactions that James Comey had with the president and the issue of obstruction of justice. He may also have information about the allegations that we have seen that there were leaks coming out of the FBI office in New York, a strong anti-Clinton bias in the FBI office in New York, and that whether those leaks went to Rudy Giuliani or went to members of Congress with an intent to be influential in the election."
