Rep. Goodlatte, who is Chairman of the House Judiciary told FBI Agent Peter Strzok he will be held in contempt, if he does not answer the question regarding how many people he had interviewed for Special Counsel.
Strzok avoided the question by saying the FBI instructed him not to answer certain questions because it might compromise Mueller’s investigation.

After a contentious exchange between Democrats and Republicans during a House Judiciary and Oversight Committee hearing on Capitol Hill Thursday, Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte informed FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok he will be recalled later today and voted in contempt.
The move comes after Strzok refused to answer a question from Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy. Gowdy asked Strzok how many people he had interviewed as part of the Special Counsel before discussed impeachment for President Trump. Strzok discussed impeachment of President Trump in a text message to FBI lawyer Lisa Page just one day after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Bob Mueller to lead the Special Counsel Russia investigation.
