Ex-GOP lawmaker: Strzok hearing 'was a humiliating day' for Republicans
14 July, 2018, 08:02 | Author: Wade Massey
Strzok endured roughly 11 hours of testimony before House lawmakers Thursday, with manyRepublicans focusing on his text of "we'll stop it" in reference to Trump's campaign.
The official took part in the investigation regarding Hillary Clinton " s use of a private email server for official communications during her tenure as US Secretary of State and was involved in the Russian Federation probe, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, although he was taken off the case after his text exchange was revealed.
"I don't appreciate having an FBI agent with an unprecedented level of animus working on two major investigations during 2016", Gowdy said. "What does Trump support smell like Mister Strzok?"
He said Republicans were pressing Page about the intent behind the text messages she had exchanged with Strzok, which included many anti-Trump missives, as well as a message in which Strzok had said "we'll stop" Trump. And my presumption, based on that terrible, disgusting behavior, that the American population would not elect somebody demonstrating that behavior to be president of the United States.
This prompted Gohmert in turn to raise his voice, turn to Strzok and say, "No, the disgrace is what this man has done to our justice system". "That is who we are as the Federal Bureau of Investigation". And the suggestion that I, in some dark chamber somewhere in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, would somehow cast aside all of these procedures, all of these safeguards and somehow be able to do this is astounding to me.
Some Democrats applauded after he finished speaking. Strzok, a seasoned counterintelligence agent, helped lead both investigations but has since been reassigned to human resources.
But the hearing was the American public's first flesh and blood view of Strzok, this key figure in the FBI's Hillary Clinton email and Russian Federation investigations - and it wasn't pretty. President Trump is being investigated by people who possess pathological hatred for him. "We did not see the smug attitude that we saw from Strozk".
"The credibility of a witness is always an issue", Gohmert said, as the committee fell into momentary chaos. Goodlatte eventually let the hearing proceed without calling the panel into recess.
This is Strzok responding to Republican lawmakers questioning him about one of the messages. Peter Strzok oversaw the opening of the investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 election. "But", he said, "the thought of exposing that information never crossed my mind".
"I don't believe I did", Strzok replied. "As someone who loves this country and cherishes its ideals, it is profoundly painful to watch and even worse to play a part in". Strzok was pulled off the Mueller investigation previous year after the Justice Department's internal watchdog made the special prosecutor aware of the texts.
