Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., on Friday accused “anti-Trumper” agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page of being “dirty cops” who tried to “set a trap” for former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Strzok “had motivations against Donald Trump, not as a cop trying to find out facts,” said Scalise, the House minority whip, on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” Friday afternoon.

The congressman added that Page and Strzok “were both dirty cops in the beginning … it looks like they were literally trying to set a trap for him.”

Scalise called on U.S. Attorney General William Barr to investigate the Flynn case, saying “people ought to go to jail and he [Strzok] would be at the top of the list.”

The congressman said that Strzok and Page “had a motivation against Trump and against Flynn even though the evidence didn’t show that they should move forward. [Strzok’s] the one who pushed to do it anyway because he had anti-Trump motivations. That’s not the kind of person you want with a badge. That’s what the definition of 'dirty cop' is all about.”
