Peter Strzok, an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent with "an extreme bias" against Trump, was involved in immunity deals offered to Clinton's top confidantes and then was drafted into the Special Counsel Robert Mueller Russia "witch hunt" into the Trump Administration, said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.).
Mueller even had to fire the agent, Peter Strzok, after emails surfaced in which he showed disdain for Trump and fondness for Clinton - clearly compromising his status as an alleged fair inquisitor. This was when the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton's email server, and just a few days before then FBI Director James Comey issued his guilty/not-really-guilty/ but really, really careless get out of jail free card to Mrs. Clinton.
Less than a week after former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn entered a plea deal admitting that he lied to FBI agents, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) indicated he was opening a probe into the "reported bias" of an agent said to be involved in Flynn's questioning, as well as in the FBI's Clinton email investigation.
Another member of special counsel Robert Mueller's legal "dream team" is coming under scrutiny, this time for her prior work providing legal representation for the Clinton Foundation.
Then Gowdy trashed the idea that Strzok would be responsible for interviewing key witnesses in the Clinton probe.
Clinton also maintains that she did not lie to the FBI, whereas Flynn has pleaded guilty last week to lying to the FBI and is cooperating with the FBI in an investigation into whether Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

Grassley requested in his letter to Wray to view the text messages in question, as well as any additional communications containing favorable or unfavorable statements about Trump or Hillary Clinton and any communications involving Strzok regarding decisions about closing the Clinton investigation or opening the investigation into potential collusion between Trump associates and the Russian government.
"If he had pro-Clinton or anti-Trump bias, what the hell was he doing interviewing Hillary Clinton?".
"There are two major controversies plaguing the credibility of the Justice Department and the FBI right now: the Trump/Russia investigation and the handling of the Clinton investigation", Grassley said. In the subject field it said: "I am so proud". Trump fired Yates, accusing her of failing to uphold a lawful order that was "designed to protect the citizens of the United States". "Thank you so much. All my deepest respects, Andrew Weissmann." . She remains the chief of the unit, according to her LinkedIn page.
"The president's order is an unconstitutional embarrassment and I applaud you for taking a principled stand against defending it", he added. A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to say whether Clair or Aloi are still working for the agency. Had that language remained, Comey's claim that "no reasonable prosecutor" would take the Clinton email case would have been laughable.
At least three US attorneys appointed by President Obama also lauded Yates for defying Trump on the travel ban.
