Rep. Gohmert Knocks The Smirk Of Strzok’s Face In Heated Exchange – You Gotta See This
The Texas Republican, Rep. Louie Gohmert, was unwavering as he fought through a hoard of objections to complete his line of questioning to FBI agent Peter Strzok. Strzok’s smirk grew more intense as Gohmert continued until the representative snapped back on a more personal note.
“The disgrace is what this man has done to our justice system,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, shouted over objections by Democrats. “I can’t help but wonder, when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page?”
Democrats immediately exploded into a sea of objections, with one yelling, “Mr. Chairman, this is intolerable harassment of the witness” and another calling out, “Do you need your medication?”
According to Fox News, Strzok and Page exchanged numerous text messages on their FBI-issued phones expressing hostility toward then-candidate Trump in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, even as Strzok was a lead investigator on the Hillary Clinton and Russian meddling probes.Page had been expected to testify Wednesday in a closed-door session, but backed out at the last minute, saying she needed more time to prepare. She is now expected to interview privately on Friday with GOP leaders.
Gohmert’s question was just one of several tense moments in the hearing, the Republicans’ first opportunity to question the embattled FBI agent publicly. Democrats frequently interrupted the proceedings during questioning by GOP representatives.
As Reported By The Washington Examiner:
FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok insisted to Congress on Thursday that his text messages disparaging then-candidate Donald Trump were “not indicative of bias,” even though the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General said the texts showed a “biased state of mind.”
“I did not think that bias was expressed in those text messages,” he told the House committees on judiciary and oversight of messages he sent showing that he opposed Trump and would “stop” him from becoming president.
He added later that “I do not have bias,” and said be believes he was taken off special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia because of the perception of bias.
