The FBI agent pulled from the Mueller probe over anti-Trump texts said he's open to testifying before Congress about his actions, The Washington Post reported Sunday.
Peter Strzok "wants the chance to clear his name and tell his story," attorney Aitan Goelman said in an interview with the Post.
"He thinks that his position, character and actions have all been misrepresented and caricatured, and he wants an opportunity to remedy that," Goelman added.
Strzok has been requested to appear before the House Judiciary Committee for "quite some time now," Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., the chairman of the committee, told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" Sunday.
"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.
Goelman wrote to Goodlatte that a subpoena would be "wholly unnecessary."
"Special Agent Strzok, who has been fully cooperative with the DOJ Office of Inspector General, intends to voluntarily appear and testify before your committee and any other Congressional committee that invites him," Goelman wrote.
Strzok, during the 2016 presidential election, told a colleague they would "stop" then-candidate Donald Trump from winning the presidency. Strzok had a leadership role on the Hillary Clinton email probe and the Russia investigation before being removed from the latter in 2017. Special counsel Robert Mueller is leading the Russia probe.
