FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will face a wave of questions Tuesday from the House Intelligence Committee. The session will be held behind closed doors.
McCabe is sure to get hit with inquiries about the anti-Trump bias in the Hillary Clinton email investigation and Special Counsel Mueller’s Russia collusion probe.
He is sure to be asked about FBI official Peter Strzok’s role in the two investigations. Strzok was removed from Mueller’s team after anti-Trump texts he had exchanged with agent Lisa Page were discovered.
Lawmakers will also want to know whether McCabe had a role in these communications, as one text exchange referred to “Andy” and an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency.
Before he was part of Mueller’s team, Strzok, a former deputy to the assistant director for counterintelligence at the FBI, played a key role in the Clinton email case. He was the person who changed the language from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” in then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the email probe, appearing to water down the bureau’s findings.
