During his interview, Rep. Jim Jordan pushed back at Strzok and his lawyer.
Strzok’s attorney Aitan Goelman attempted to explain the text messages reveal a “media leak strategy” within the Justice Department in April 2017.
“The argument that Mr. Strzok’s making just doesn’t hold water, doesn’t pass the smell test,” Jordan declared.
The new text messages released that are outlined in a letter Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Monday, seem to show Strzok discussing media leaks with his lover, former FBI attorney Lisa Page.
“I had literally just gone to find this phone to tell you I want to talk to you about media leak strategy with DOJ before you go,” one of the texts reads.

Strzok’s attorney Aitan Goelman said Tuesday that the texts were being misinterpreted by Meadows and others for political purposes.
“The term ‘media leak strategy’ in Mr. Strzok’s text refers to a Department-wide initiative to detect and stop leaks to the media. The president and his enablers are once again peddling unfounded conspiracy theories to mislead the American people.” Goelman said.
Jordan pushed back with cold, hard facts.
“Remember, this is the same guy who said ‘we will stop Trump. So their bias was pretty darn clear from some of the earlier text messages we’ve seen. Now we see that there was a media strategy, a leak strategy to influence this whole thing.” Jordan explained. (Video Below)
Jordan reminded the audience about the the Department of Justice inspector general’s report on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation and the revelation that 13 different FBI officials were working with one reporter, as evidence that the leaks were coordinated.
“If that doesn’t point to some kind of media strategy, leak strategy, I don’t know what does.” Jordan said.
He added, “If their strategy was to stop the leaks, they sure didn’t do a very good job.”
