FBI agent Strzok facing GOP critics at public hearing

peter StrzokTwo weeks after embattled FBI agent Peter Strzok was interviewed by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, he has returned to a congressional hearing room just down the hall from where he was questioned for 11 hours -- but this time he'll get the first chance to publicly give his side of the story under the bright camera lights.
"Let me be clear, unequivocally and under oath: not once in my 26 years of defending our nation did my personal opinions impact any official action I took," Strzok said in his opening statement, adding later, that the "fact is, after months of investigations, there is simply no evidence of bias in my professional actions."
Thursday's hearing is poised to be one of the most contentious in Congress so far tied to the Russia investigation, as Republicans will get the chance to grill one of the key FBI officials they have accused of misconduct.

Senate votes to support NATO ahead of Trump summit

Senate votes to support NATOLawmakers on Tuesday overwhelmingly voted in favor of a motion supporting NATO, as President Trump continues to criticize the alliance ahead of his summit in Europe.

The nonbinding motion, which came as the Senate voted to reconcile its version of the annual defense policy bill with that of the House, expresses the Senate’s support for NATO and calls on negotiators to reaffirm the U.S. commitment to it.

The 97-2 vote in the Senate comes as Trump heads to Brussels. He will also travel to the United Kingdom and meet one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki during his trip.

GOP Senators Tell Contradictory Stories About Moscow Trip

GOP Senators tell contradictory stories about Moscow visit

A top Republican senator shocked his colleagues when he suggested, after returning from a trip to Moscow with fellow GOP lawmakers, that U.S. sanctions targeting Russia were not working and the Kremlin’s election interference was really no big deal.

Now, the senators who joined him for the series of meetings with senior Russian officials are sharply disputing not only Sen. Ron Johnson’s (R-WI) conclusions—but also his account of what went on behind closed doors in Moscow.

Trump-Russia: more election meddling evidence found, says Senate panel

Trump - Russia: Senat Intel Panel finds more proof of meddlingA Republican-controlled Senate panel has said that further evidence has been found to support a US intelligence assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election to help elect Donald Trump.

No further detail was given.

House GOP rips Rosenstein to his face

Rosenstein grilled by rude GOP committeeHouse Republicans on Thursday mounted a multi-front effort to rebuke and embarrass the GOP-led Justice Department, hauling Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein before an "emergency" hearing of the Judiciary Committee just as the House voted to accuse him of flouting congressional document requests.

Face-to-face with Rosenstein and FBI Director Chris Wray, Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte invoked the Church Committee — the 1975 investigation into federal surveillance abuses against figures like Martin Luther King, Jr. — and suggested history was repeating itself in the ongoing investigation into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia on its election interference efforts.

Toomey takes on Trump

Bob Corker, Jeff Flake, Orrin Hatch — some of President Donald Trump’s fiercest GOP critics on trade — are retiring from the Senate at the end of this year.

But Pat Toomey isn’t going anywhere.

Reelected to a six-year term in 2016 alongside Trump, the conservative Pennsylvania senator has emerged as Trump’s sharpest antagonist on trade policy — pushing legislation with Corker to take back Congress’ power over trade deals and straining to defend NAFTA from the erratic president.
