Disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok is set to testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Friday behind closed doors, but President Donald Trump has a new idea for the “hating frauds” at the FBI and DOJ.
As reported by Fox News, Trump said Strzok and other anti-Trump agents exposed in the DOJ’s Inspector General report should be forced to testify on live television. The president said they should be forced to answer publicly why they abused their power and acted unethically.
In a tweet that scorched across social media, Trump said there should be total transparency regarding the hearing.
The hearing of Peter Strzok and the other hating frauds at the FBI & DOJ should be shown to the public on live television, not a closed door hearing that nobody will see. We should expose these people for what they are – there should be total transparency!

Trump’s comments come a few days before Strzok is set to testify, which he only agreed to do if Congress allowed him to answer questions in private.
That means the American people cannot hear what he has to say about the numerous allegations that he abused his power, possibly acted illegally, and why he sent countless anti-Trump text messages leading up to the 2016 presidential election.
Strzok served as the No. 2 counterintelligence analyst at the FBI before being demoted last year and fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team after an internal probe found that he had sent hundreds of anti-Trump text messages to Lisa Page, a former lawyer at the FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair.
Page abruptly resigned earlier this month amid the numerous allegations against her.
The IG’s report, which was released earlier this month, also revealed that Strzok told Page on Nov. 8, 2016, that he would never let Trump become president.
“He’s not ever going to become president, right? Right?!’ Page wrote to Strzok.
Strzok responded: “No. No, he’s not. We’ll stop it.”
In other text messages between Strzok and Page, which were handed over to Congress earlier this year, the former No. 2 at the bureau spoke about an “insurance policy” in the case that Trump won the election and mentioned a “secret society” to unseat a duly elected president.
Several other top FBI and DOJ agents, who worked on the Russia investigation against Trump before Mueller was appointed, were busted sending extremely biased message about Trump. They called the president and called his supporters poor, lazy, pieces of sh*t who are uneducated and pathetic.
So, they were tough enough to make these comments in private, yet act like cowards now that the public knows what they said. Only Strzok has agreed to testify, but he will only do so in private because he’s afraid to face the American people.
This is arguably the biggest scandal in modern political history, and it speaks volumes that the rogue, corrupt FBI agent is too scared to answer questions in public and is trying to hide behind closed doors.
