Today was a big day for shamed FBI agent Peter Strzok, as he appeared on Capitol Hill to answer questions concerning his shocking texts with his lover discussing President Trump. In one of his texts he actually made the comment to his girlfriend – “we will stop Trump from becoming President.”
He claims he meant “we,” as the American people would never elect Trump as President. Later when Trump was elected as President, he spoke about him resigning. He went further saying in one of his texts – “ Hillary Clinton had to win a hundred million to zero.”
Further, Strzok was stuck on the word, “impeachment.”
Strzok was kicked off Special Counsel Mueller’s team as he was accused of being biased against President Trump – there is no doubt this is true, but I believe that Strzok represents the attitude of the Deep State – bottom line.
Strzok should be humiliated to put it mildly , but this man has no moral compass. The only aspect of punishment he has received from government is his security clearance was revoked by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
As the House Judiciary Committee hearing quickly flared into a free-for-all Thursday, words were thrown back and forth like rocks. It was actually a relief to see Strzok squirming in his seat showing his true pathetic colors. Just as James Comey did before him, he made excuse after excuse for himself.
He couldn’t answer a question related to the Russia investigation because the FBI’s lawyers had instructed him not to, leading the committee’s chairman, Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., to threaten to hold Strzok in contempt. What a wonderful moment for all Americans to hear our Representatives put Strzok in the hot seat!
When Trey Gowdy asked Strzok if his anti-Trump text messages led to his removal from the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, and how many interviews he conducted in the first week of the probe, it was no surprise Strzok would not answer the question.
“Congressman, as you know, counsel for the FBI, based on the special counsel’s equities, has instructed me not to answer questions about the ongoing investigation into Russian attempts to interfere,” Strzok replied.
The fires started burning when Gowdy repeated his question and Strzok repeated his answer, infuriating Goodlatte. Goodlatte said, “Mr. Strzok, you are under subpoena and are required to answer the question,” Goodlatte said. “Are you objecting to the question?”
Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., interjected – Mr. Chairman, I object,” Nadler said. “This demand puts Mr. Strzok in an impossible position. He is still an employee of the FBI, and FBI’s counsel has instructed him not to answer the gentleman’s question. If we have a problem with this policy we should take it up with the FBI, not badger Mr. Strzok.”
“The point of order is not taken,” Goodlatte said.
“It’s right on point,” Nadler replied.
“Are you just going to make up rules as we go along?” Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., asked Goodlatte.
Strzok pointed out that he was not under subpoena and appearing before the committee voluntarily, as if he was doing a noble thing.
“You have not stated a valid, legal basis for not responding to a question directed to you by a member of the United States House of Representatives,” the chairman said, threatening to hold Strzok in contempt.
All the Democrats defended the shamed Strzok, as they probably consider him to be a hero.
The text messages between Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page during the 2016 campaign is proof of bias in the Mueller probe, and that is putting it mildly. Strzok had an excuse, as he said the disparaging comments were said ‘off the cuff’ during a late night text message session. You have to laugh at that.
Strzok said he didn’t “appreciate” Trey Gowdy’s comments on his text messages. The highlight was when Trey Gowdy shot back, “I don’t give a damn what you appreciate! I don’t appreciate having an FBI agent with an unprecedented level of animus working on two major investigations in 2016.”
That was a rewarding moment when Gowdy hit Strzok where it hurt, as Strzok’s demeanor was haughty and infuriating.
n another remark, Strzok said his texts in no way influenced the FBI’s investigation.
“I take great offense and I take great disagreement to your assertion,” Strzok told Gowdy. “Furthermore, this isn’t just me sitting here telling you — you don’t have to take my word for it. At every step, at every investigative decision, there were multiple layers of people above me — the assistant director, the deputy assistant director, deputy director and director of the FBI. And multiple layers of people below me — section chiefs, supervisors, unit chiefs, case agents and analysts — all of whom were involved in all of these decisions. They would not tolerate any improper behavior in me any more than I would tolerate it in them.”
“That is who we are as the FBI,” Strzok said. “And the suggestion that I in some dark chamber somewhere would somehow cast aside all of these procedures, all of these safeguards, and somehow be able to do this is astounding to me. It simply couldn’t happen.”
It is hard to believe Strzok thinks the American people would believe that. He is just as haughty and self righteous as James Comey. I think we are all tired of this witch hunt and these Deep State plants. However, we may be making progress in exposing them all.
Louie Gohmert is a sincere man who is always looking out for the American people. He said to Strzok,
“The disgrace is what this man has done to our justice system!” Gohmert cried out, before turning back to Strzok. “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?”
This shout out to Strzok by Louie Gohmert was a monumental moment that no one will be able to top, in my opinion.
Democrats on the panel went wild, “This is insane!” one shouted.
“Do you need your medication?” shouted another.
Let’s take a moment to laugh and be thankful that Strzok was even more humiliated today than even when his security clearance was revoked.
We can be proud of our Representatives today. Strzok was further exposed for his role as a Deep State agent. Could it be we are making progress against this Beast? I think so, or I hope so.
