FBI Agent Willing to Testify in Probe  06/18 06:14

   An FBI agent who was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller's team 
after sending anti-Trump text messages says he is willing to testify before 
Congress.

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- An FBI agent who was removed from special counsel Robert 
Mueller's team after sending anti-Trump text messages says he is willing to 
testify before Congress.

   A lawyer for Peter Strzok (STRUCK) told House Judiciary Committee Chairman 
Bob Goodlatte in a letter Sunday that his client is willing to testify before 
his panel or any other committee that invites him.

   Strzok was criticized in a recent Justice Department inspector general 
report for creating an appearance of conflict because of text messages he 
traded with another FBI employee.

   Strzok was involved in the Hillary Clinton email investigation and was later 
added to Mueller's team. He was removed last summer once the messages were 
discovered.

   His lawyer, Aitan Goelman, has said bias didn't affect his client's 
investigative decisions.
