Gowdy Asks FEMA Administrator To Produce Personal Travel Records

Deputy Assistant FBI Director Peter Strzok testifies before a joint committee hearing of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill July 12, 2018 in Washington, DC. While involved in the probe into Hillary ClintonÕs use of a private email server in 2016, Strzok exchanged text messages with FBI attorney Lisa Page that were critical of Trump. After learning about the messages, Mueller removed Strzok from his investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has asked Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long to produce documents related to his travel, following reports that Long used government vehicles and employees to drive him to and from his home in North Carolina on several weekends.

According to a letter posted by the Oversight Committee, Gowdy asked for records of when Long used a governmental vehicle for personal travel and the communications associated with tasking a FEMA employee accompany him on those trips. Gowdy also asked Long to “produce policies relating to the use of government-owned or government-leased vehicles by non-career officials,” he said.

Long is currently under an internal investigation from the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general for the matter, a probe launched at Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s request.
