Gohmert told Brian Kilmeade on Fox News that he regretted that his outburst and insult against Strzok were overshadowing the very important information he had gathered during the hearing.

FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok testifies before the the House Committees on the Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform on Capitol Hill, Thursday, July 12, 2018. Page was also consulting with the bureau and her personal lawyer during the hearing, much as Strzok did during his.

The Justice Department's inspector general has criticized Strzok and Page for creating the appearance of impropriety through the texts.

Her lawyer said Page had offered to voluntarily appear before the committees later this month but needed more clarification about what the lawmakers would be asking.

House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, who mixed it up with Strzok several times on Thursday, would not answer questions about Page or the Mueller indictment when he left the interview Friday.

Meadows and other members of the Oversight panel have been working with the Judiciary Committee in a joint inquiry that they say is meant to determine whether the early stages of the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election were tainted by political bias.

And many Democrats say actions taken by law enforcement during the campaign season, including announcing a reopening of the investigation into Clinton just days before the election, actually wound up harming the Democratic candidate and aiding the Republican candidate, Trump.

Page did not speak to reporters as she arrived for her closed-door interview, which Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyers also attended. We " ll stop it".

"They should not be on camera", she said.

"I found Lisa Page to be more credible than Peter Strzok".

"He thinks promising to stop someone he is supposed to be fairly investigating from ever becoming president isn't bias", Gowdy said. "You've embarrassed them, you've embarrassed yourself, and I can't help but wonder when I see you looking there with a little smirk - how many times did you look so innocently into your wife's eye and lie to her about Lisa Page?". Democrats responded with a call to bring back before the committee former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, who was not forced to answer certain questions.

"And it was when they forensically examined the anomaly, they found embedded information, and it was a foreign entity, not Russian Federation, but a foreign entity that was getting every single one of her, over thirty thousand, emails", he continued.

"There is significant new info she has provided", Meadows said, adding that he wouldn't discuss details unless transcripts of the interviews were released.
