FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok’s attorney Aitan Goelman confirmed that Strzok will appear before the House Judiciary Committee next week, according to a press release by Goelman’s law firm, Zuckerman Spaeder.

“More than anyone, Special Agent Strzok wants to testify publicly and attempt to have the unfiltered truth be heard. Members of Congress have made this as difficult as possible — first demanding a secretive hearing and then selectively leaking and misrepresenting his words — but Pete will continue to play by the rules and act with integrity. Even though it will be almost impossible for Pete to get a fair hearing, as some Members have already shown disdain for the truth,” the press release stated.

The public hearing before the House Judiciary Committee will take place on July 12, according to the press release. (RELATED: Emails Shed Light On Peter Strzok’s Role In Carter Page FISA Process)

The press release also called for members of Congress to “publicly release the transcript of [Strzok’s] previous 11-hour testimony” and included a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia.

“To provide the public with assurances that the Committee truly seeks fair play and transparency, we request that you publicly release the transcript of Special Agent Strzok’s previous testimony,” the letter to Goodlatte states. “Fair play and decency dictate that the witness should have the same access to the materials that the committee grants itself. ”

Strzok came under scrutiny after text messages between himself and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page showed their disdain for President Donald Trump while investigating allegations about possible Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.
