On Tuesday, testifying to Congress with regard to the IG report revolving around the FBI and Justice Department’s handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz revealed that the report had found that beyond FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page , two additional FBI agents and an attorney were discovered showing anti-Trump bias, and that two of the three were working on either the Russia investigation or the Mueller probe.
Horowitz was challenged by Rep. Trey Gowdy, a former prosecutor himself.
The exchange went like this:
Gowdy: “I wonder, Inspector General, did you find any other FBI agents or FBI attorneys who manifested any animus or bias against President Trump?
Horowitz: “We did.”
Gowdy: “How many?”
Horowitz: “We found three additional FBI agents as we detail in the report.”
Gowdy: “And were any of them working on the Russia investigation?”
Horowitz: “I’m sorry. Let me—two agents and one attorney.”
Gowdy: “Two other agents, one other attorney. Were they working on either the Russia investigation or the Mueller probe?”
Horowitz: “I believe two of the three were, but I would just have to double-check on that.”
