FBI agent Peter Strzok say political bias did not impact investigations

Strzok's testimony left much of the American public frustrated, DeSantis said.

We urge CHQ readers and friends to contact Attorney General Jeff Sessions through the Department of Justice Main Switchboard (202-514-2000) to demand that Peter Strzok be fired for dereliction of duty for failing to investigate the information presented to him by the Intelligence Community Inspector General as documented by Rep. Louie Gohmert at yesterday's House Judiciary Committee hearing and that the Hillary Clinton email investigation be reopened.

"The top DOJ official, Bruce Ohr, actually hands parts of the dossier to the Federal Bureau of Investigation". Both Strzok and Page were booted from Mueller's investigation a year ago after he discovered their texts.

Democrats threw their support behind Strzok with gusto.

This, I think, is a smart tactic-playing defense would allow the Republicans to continue insinuating guilt, while going on the offensive against their inquisitors casts the accusations in their proper partisan light.

The Fox News host said it was part of a strategy to protect Strzok, and Strassel agreed, suggesting that she believed the entire organization is corrupt. Gowdy said, pointing out the pro-Hillary bias among other members of the investigative team who weren't booted from it.

An embattled Federal Bureau of Investigation agent whose anti-Trump text messages exposed the Justice Department to claims of institutional bias vigorously defended himself at an extraordinary congressional hearing that devolved into shouting matches, finger-pointing and veiled references to personal transgressions.

In his opening statement, Strzok acknowledged that while his text message criticism was "blunt", it was not directed at one person or political party and included jabs not only at Trump but also at Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders.

During their extramarital affair, Strzok and Page exchanged thousands of text messages to one another on their Federal Bureau of Investigation phones - including numerous anti-Trump comments. At one point, Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California chimed in, saying, "This is a stupid and ridiculous hearing". "That is bias. Agent Strzok may not see it but the rest of the country does, and it is not what we want, expect or deserve from any law enforcement officer much less the Federal Bureau of Investigation". "Mr. Chairman, Mr. Chairman, please", one said.

Anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok lashed-out at GOP lawmakers during his fiery testimony Thursday, claiming his politically charged text messages were based in his "deep patriotism". "When I see you looking with a little smirk, I wonder how many times did you look so innocently into your wife's eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page", Gohmert began.

"Credibility of a witness is always an issue", Gohmert retorted over the commotion.

"This information had the potential to derail and quite possibly defeat Mr. Trump, but the thought of expressing that, or exposing that information never crossed my mind", Efe quoted Mr Strzok as telling to lawmakers during a congressional hearing.

"Lisa Page is not an Federal Bureau of Investigation employee".

Page appeared Friday, declining to speak to reporters as she entered the committee spaces, after House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican, had threatened to hold her in contempt for defying a subpoena earlier in the week.
