SHAMELESS: Democrat Says Strzok Should Receive PURPLE HEART for Anti-Trump Texts

  • U.S. President Donald Trump with Attorney General Jeff Sessions

Gowdy sparred with Strzok in a combative line of questioning that led to an extended argument between leaders of the committee during the public hearing.

You know, I didn't get the impression he was agreeing with it at all, by the way.

The two agents disparaged Trump throughout 2016, describing him as an "idiot" and a "menace".

Gowdy responded by calling on Watson Coleman to question Strzok.

It reflected, he said, "my presumption, based on that awful, disgusting behavior, that the American population would not elect someone demonstrating that behavior to be president of the United States".

With the Congressional hearings freshly ended, The Five co-host Jesse Watters asked the panel if Republicans "landed any solid blows today on Peter Strzok that shed light on any of his activities with regard to the Trump-Russia investigation?" "Sir, I completely disagree with you".

Strzok reiterated to lawmakers that, despite a trove of text messages from 2016 that seem to indicate he had an intense personal distaste for President Donald Trump, he has never allowed personal opinions to affect any of his official work at the agency.

Trump himself has launched personal attacks against the two Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, including a Wednesday evening tweet that asked "how can the Rigged Witch Hunt proceed when it was started, influenced and worked on, for an extended period of time" by Strzok. He said the texts reflected purely personal opinions that he never once acted on, though he did acknowledge being dismayed during the campaign by the Republican candidate's behavior. They are safely walled off from any individual's personal political views, he said. "But the thought of exposing that information never crossed my mind".

Strzok, who helped lead investigations of Hillary Clinton's emails and ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, will testify publicly Thursday before Congress after previously testifying before lawmakers in a closed session.

The pair put pride on the line with a wager on the outcome of their nations' quarter-final clash in Samara on Saturday. It was England's eighth set-piece goal of its 11 in Russian Federation , and the center back's first in global soccer.

"Counsel of the FBI has directed me not to answer any questions about the ongoing investigations".

But he said that he couldn't recall if he had interviewed any witnesses before texting Ms. Page that the president should be impeached.

Strzok is attending the public hearing after he was also subpoenaed last week.

Goodlatte told Strzok he could answer, though Gohmert was visibly displeased. "Read his hate filled and totally biased Emails and the answer is clear!" tweeted Donald Trump, taking a break from dynamiting the Atlantic alliance in advance of his upcoming canoodle with V. V. Putin.

"The fact that you would accuse me otherwise - the fact that you would question whether or not that was the sort of look I would engage with in a family member who I have acknowledged hurting - goes more to a discussion about your character and what you stand for and what is going inside you". This is the man who signed off on the July 2016 counterintelligence probe into possible Russian collusion between the Trump camp and the Kremlin. - Goodlatte threatened Strzok with contempt of Congress.

An argument ensued between Goodlatte and Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the committee's ranking member, who contended that Gowdy was putting Strzok in an "impossible position".

"Mr. Chairman, there's no basis for that", Nadler said. Mr Strzok would note at one point that information about a Russian offer to help the Trump campaign was of "extraordinary significance" and came from an "extraordinarily sensitive and credible source". But the report said it found no evidence of political bias in the FBI's decision not to pursue criminal charges against Clinton.

"Of course I do", said Peter Strzok.
