On Sunday morning, President Trump latched onto the story that FBI agent Peter Strzok was removed from working within special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia probe over anti-Trump tweets.

He used the story – broken by the New York Times and the Washington Post – and the fact that Strzok had held a lead role in the Hillary Clinton email investigation to suggest that the FBI hasn’t treated Trump fairly.

‘Report: “ANTI-TRUMP FBI AGENT LED CLINTON EMAIL PROBE,”‘ Trump tweeted. ‘Now it all starts to make sense!’

On Capitol Hill, House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, has expressed outrage that lawmakers didn’t know the reason Mueller kicked Strzok off the team.

‘By hiding from Congress, and from the American people, documented political bias by a key FBI head investigator for both the Russia collusion probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI and DOJ engaged in a willful attempt to thwart Congress’ constitutional oversight responsibility,’ Nunes said in a statement Saturday.

‘This is part of a months-long pattern by the DOJ and FBI of stonewalling and obstructing this committee’s oversight work, particularly oversight of their use of the Steele dossier,’ Nunes said, referencing the unverified opposition research report gathered by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele, documenting Trump’s relationship with Russia.

‘At this point, these agencies should be investigating themselves,’ Nunes said, according to the Washington Examiner.

Nunes was further incensed when after months of requesting information, including interviews with Strzok, the DOJ notified Nunes that the agency would provide some of it.

‘The DOJ has now expressed – on a Saturday, just hours after the press reports on Strzok’s dismissal appeared – a sudden willingness to comply with some of the committee’s long-standing demands,’ Nunes said. ‘This attempted 11th-hour accommodation is neither credible nor believable, and in fact is yet another example of the DOJ’s disingenuousness and obstruction.’
