FBI Agent Peter Strzok was grilled on Capitol Hill Thursday by members of Congress for sending anti-Trump texts during two ongoing investigations. Well, he was at least grilled by the Republicans. The likes of Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Jim Jordan (R-OH), and Louie Gohmert (R-TX) demanded to know whether Strzok let his political bias affect his job. He admitted that he "detested" Donald Trump, but at no point did his political ideology factor in to his work at the FBI. The interrogators didn't believe him. Gohmert was particularly combative, telling Strzok he didn't appreciate the "smirk" on his face and that he was a "disgrace" to FBI agents all over the country.
Strzok maintained throughout the hearing that his political opinions did not amount to bias.
"Political belief does not equate to bias and we always have to go to the evidence," he said. "If you can demonstrate evidence of acts of bias, well then bias is there."
It was a lovefest, however, on the other side of the aisle. It seemed almost every time a Democrat got their question time, they had nothing but praise for the FBI agent. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) said we should be "honoring" Strzok for the work he's done to keep the country safe.
One Democrat even wished he could award Strzok a purple heart.
What an insult to wounded service members:
Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen tells disgraced FBI agent Strzok: "If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would. You deserve one."
Liberals versus America
Yep he’s a hero they were applauding him. And Mueller saw no bias, only the public perception of bias. These democrats including Mueller no matter what he calls himself, are rotten to the core.
Neither side did nothing but appeal to their least informed bases.
It is getting to the point that the only justice will have to come from citizens.
He needs a new Career, Rope Dancer.
So does the scumbag Democrat who said he deserves a Purple Heart.
Totally insulting to our veterans. Natch.
The RAT vermin should order their packing boxes early.
Deplorables, Let’s Roll!! Get out the vote in November and send the RAT vermin back to the real world.
So—What exactly was the purpose of this hearing?
What did the Republicans hope to achieve, and did they get anywhere near it?
What happens next?
Remember—These are the same guys that a girl beat them up yesterday.
I’d like to put both their butts on the ground in Afghanistan so they can learn how a Purple Heart is really earned.
Exactly...I hope the RATs just keep digging, they’re killing themselves.
Strzon deserves tar and feathers and a fencerail ride into the Anacostia.
He claimed the Supreme Court encourages him to express his political feelings. Hm I wonder if they meant when you lead the FBI counter intelligence unit and you investigate the two candidates for president, and you’re in a relationship with your FBI boss’s assistant. Just maybe that person should have the judgment not to blather on about hating Trump and loving Hilary. But Strzok and the democrats are oblivious to such concepts.
Str zok has that same aggrieved face as Comey and smarmy snake like answer
Frankly I think Flynn and everyone else should be able to get off with this guy in the prosecuter’s office. Its clear the government is simply biased.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
Can’t wait for Trump’s next press conference and he answers question about this Circus
I know the Page woman is not what most would consider as homewrecker material or a looker, but having the wherewithal to screw up your marriage to bed her is hardly deserving of any medal. IMO.
Thats a very disgusting and insensitive comment to make in regards to people that actually deserve Purple Hearts.
“Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen”
What a vile POS. Butt ugly to boot. How is it in a TN. Distric 66% Black this slimy skinny ass white guy gets elected? Hardley a step up from a Jackson Lee, or MadMax type.
