Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) on Tuesday sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray requesting information about Peter Strzok, the FBI agent removed from the Russia investigation for allegedly sending text messages critical of President Donald Trump.

Strzok, furthermore, is said to have interviewed Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. The FBI agent, CNN reported, also changed then-FBI Director James Comey's description of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's actions relating to her email server from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”

In his letter, Grassley asked for all material relevant to these matters by Monday.

“The communications between members of the Clinton email investigation team raise questions about the integrity of that investigation, and about the objectivity of Mr. Strzok's work for the Special Counsel and in the FBI's investigation of Mr. Flynn,” Grassley wrote.

Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, contacted Strzok directly in October regarding an interview, but it did not take place.
