Skip to comments.Peter Strzok exhibited an astonishing lack of self-awareness

For ten hours Thursday, FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok gave riveting, compelling and, at times, farcical testimony before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. ...(snipped for excerpt size)
The lowlights included Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas). In a contentious back-and-forth with Strzok, whose well-publicized affair with a colleague resulted in the discovery of damning politically charged text messages, Gohmert questioned Strzoks fidelity, blasted his smirk and condemned his conduct as a disgrace.
Gohmert, How many times did you look so innocent into your wifes eyes and lie to her?Not to be outdone were Strzoks defense attorneys the committees Democrats. As if saying Hold my beer, here was Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) who lavishly praised the witness before adding this comical, but, for military veterans, highly insulting pièce de résistance, If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would.
The Purple Heart, established in 1782, is Americas oldest military decoration. George Washington awarded the first one. One earns it by being wounded in combat.
Yet, for all the partisan grandstanding, it was Strzok, whose voice most of America had never heard, who delivered the most noteworthy performance.
From his opening statement, a copy of which the Associated Press obtained a day prior, Strzok came out swinging. He fidgeted, appeared uncomfortable, but there was perceptible defiance in his voice as he plodded through his opening remarks.
Parroting Democratic talking points, he dismissed the proceedings as just another notch in Putins belt because, as you know, congressional oversight of the FBI is such a victory for the Kremlin.
His testimony devolved into a laughable defense of the indefensible. His perpetually smug countenance disappeared, at times, when GOP lawmakers questioned the blatant political bias of his text-message exchanges with former FBI attorney Lisa Page.

I’d say he is fully aware- but like most democrats doesn’t know the meaning of the word shame- He plain doesn’t care that he’s a bold-faced liar because he knows these hearings will likely go nowhere- Democrats are immune to the moral behavior- they know they should be truthful- but nope- they have crossed the line and decided they will walk in immorality instead
Has Strzok been drug-tested recently?
No man would do that deliberate smirk unless he was specifically trying to provoke someone. Otherwise he’s a damn girl and not a terribly bright one at that.
Lisa Page likes girls....
Hahaha...hold my beer....
Trey Gowdy? Trey should have READ OUT LOUD Strzoks comments about Trump and Trump supporters and replaced the words - - Trump with Martin Luther King jr... and trump supporters or base with black community.
Liberals are NOT capable of empathy so they cant hear damage being done to the other. But they would have heard it with one of their own victim groups mentioned. Trey could have ended it by asking would you want this man in charge of a civil rights investigation?
Heres the picture of Peter Strzok that shows the snake he really is....
I loved it when Goehmert asked about looking in the eyes of his wife and lying especially the reaction of the Rats. They went hysterical - bat-shit crazy. It was beautiful.
Law Enforcement analyst for CNN and past 24 year FBI agent.
CNN might punish him for his straight forward outrage at the “ladder climber.”
What would it matter. If he had heroin and cocaine in his system his protectors on the left could care less. If Charles Manson had been useful to the left they would have found a way to support him.
The post-2018 midterm election Congress needs to fire loose cannons like Strzok imo.
I read the entire article, and except for besmirching other FBI agents, and making a fool of himself, the author doesn’t think Strzok’s actions did any actual harm. I would beg to differ -— as one of Hillary’s lead investigators, he gave her complete passes, and saw to it that she and her army of cohorts, had nothing to fear from the FBI, and by extension, the DOJ.
That man is messed up.
I want to know if he and Mrs. Page abused their expense accounts as well as lied during their affair.
Peter Strzok is a protagonist in a Greek tragedy.
Yeah, there’s a guy I want running the United States’ largest and most powerful law enforcement agency.
I am hoping some cartoonist will draw Gohmert and Strzok in the walk down scene from Silverado with Gohmert shooting a hole clean thru Strzok’s union suit crotch.
IMO, that would be the essence of the hearing confrontation.
Democrats okay with Clinton's immorality.
Democrats upset with Trump's supposed fling with a porn star or being married for the 2nd or 3rd time.
Democrats okay with Strzok's immorality.
Oh, forgot JFK and Ted Kennedy....and Barney Frank...and Lindsey Graham. Oh man....
