Republicans, who have long wanted to question McCabe over how the Federal Bureau of Investigation used a now-famous dossier about Trump with unverified accusations of collusion, also want to ask about the Strzok text messages.

Strzok exchanged anti-Trump text messages with his lover, suggesting that the Mueller probe was an "insurance policy" against a Trump election victory.

McCabe is also under scrutiny, for working on the Clinton investigation and recusing himself only a week before the election, while his wife received donations in her run for a Virginia state senator seat from Clinton ally Terry McAuliffe.

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe testified behind closed doors for almost eight hours Tuesday on Capitol Hill, amid calls for his firing over allegations of conflicts of interest and anti-Trump political prejudice at the law enforcement bureau. They also want to know what McCabe knows about demoted Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie Ohr, who was reportedly contracted to help prepare opposition research on Trump.

"I hardly know the man", Trump said during a news conference after Comey's testimony. "If he could have, he would have", said one participant in the questioning.

The sources said that when asked when he learned that the dossier had been funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, McCabe claimed he could not recall - despite the reported existence of documents with McCabe's own signature on them establishing his knowledge of the dossier's financing and provenance.

Members of President Donald Trump's inner circle and Republican support system have been alleging in recent months that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing the Trump campaign's possible Russian Federation ties, is running a partisan sideshow meant to discredit the improbable president.

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is expected back on Capitol Hill Thursday for a closed-door interview with the House Judiciary Committee, according to Committee aides, as Republicans continue to investigate the handling of the Clinton email and Trump campaign investigations during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"The chairman of the Judiciary Committee is going to subpoena Lisa Page", Jordan said. "We need those people to come in, to be deposed and to put those people on the same stand that [Attorney General Jeff] Sessions and [Deputy Attorney General Rod] Rosenstein sat on in the past few weeks".
