FBI Agent Peter Strzok has reportedly been subpoenaed by The House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte.
The Subpoenae comes despite Strzok’s lawyer claiming this week that the embattled FBI agent was willing to testify on his own without immunity. Reports are confirming Strzok would not commit to a specific date which is why he subpoena was issued.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) issued a subpoena on Friday commanding FBI agent Peter Strzok to testify before the committee next week, despite Strzok's offer to testify voluntarily.
Strzok's testimony is scheduled to take place on Wednesday at 10:00 a.m., according to a press release from the Judiciary Committee.
"The Committees have repeatedly requested to interview Mr. Strzok regarding his role in certain decisions, but he has yet to appear," the statement said. The committee was referring to the joint investigation between the Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee examining the FBI's conduct during the 2016 presidential election.
Strzok was one of two FBI officials removed from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia after it was revealed that he and his colleague, Lisa Page, had sent text messages that were highly critical of then-candidate Trump.
