Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation upon the discovery of anti-Trump texts he sent to his mistress Lisa Page.

Aitan Goelman, Peter Strzok’s attorney, told The Washington Post that his client would not invoke his Fifth Amendment rights and would be willing to testify without an immunity deal.

"[Strzok] thinks that his position, character, and actions have all been misrepresented and caricatured," Goelman said, "and he wants an opportunity to remedy that."

When contacted by Fox News, Goelman confirmed the statement he gave to the Post was accurate.

How can the text be misrepresented? The texts are his words. This should be interesting.

President Trump tweeted: “FBI Agent Peter Strzok, who headed the Clinton & Russia investigations, texted to his lover Lisa Page, in the IG Report, that “we’ll stop” candidate Trump from becoming President. Doesn’t get any lower than that!”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">FBI Agent Peter Strzok, who headed the Clinton &amp; Russia investigations, texted to his lover Lisa Page, in the IG Report, that “we’ll stop” candidate Trump from becoming President. Doesn’t get any lower than that!</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="">June 15, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, told "Fox & Friends" that his panel had requested that Strzok appear "for quite some time now."

"If an agreement is not reached in the next day or so to produce him voluntarily, we will issue [a] subpoena early this week," Goodlatte said.

Strzok’s offer to testify came three days after Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz wrote that Strzok's text messages with FBI attorney Lisa Page created the appearance that investigative decisions were motivated by bias against the then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The most scandalous exchange, Strzok texted Page that "we'll stop" Trump from becoming president.

Horowitz cited numerous exchanges between Strzok and Page but concluded there was no evidence that anti-Trump bias played a role in the FBI's investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">.<a href="">@TGowdySC</a> on <a href="">@AdamSchiffCA</a>, <a href="">@NancyPelosi</a>: &quot;They want Bob Mueller to do what Peter Strzok and <a href="">@HillaryClinton</a> could not do which is beat <a href="">@realDonaldTrump</a>. So just be aware that you&#39;re being used, would be my advice to Bob Mueller.&quot; <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FoxNewsSunday</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Fox News (@FoxNews) <a href="">June 17, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

Strzok was a lead investigator on the Clinton case and later worked on the Russia investigation until the Justice Department inspector general's office brought the texts to Mueller's attention.

I can’t imagine what this dirtbag could possibly say that would be credible. I can’t believe he thinks people are stupid enough to believe his texts have been misrepresented. Enough with these people. We know they broke the law trying to setup our President. Outstanding article Lexy.
