WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) announced that he has received a response from the FBI on his January letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray demanding answers about FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s current security clearance and access to sensitive information, as well as whether or not the Bureau has a process in place to ensure agents are not using databases for political or personal reasons.
While the FBI refused to address specific agents, its response confirmed that all FBI employees maintain a Top Secret security clearance, which allows them to have access to sensitive information.
“It is outrageous that agents who have been previously caught red-handed expressing their bias against President Trump continue to have access to Americans’ private data,” said Dr. Paul.
