Democratic lawmaker says Peter Strzok deserves Purple Heart for enduring hearing

FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok prepares to testify on Thursday

On Thursday, House Republicans grilled Strzok for hours, making all manner of incendiary insinuations about what that text implied.

Strzok was a lead agent in both the Russian Federation probe and the investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she served as secretary of state.

In addition, said Issa, Strzok was "dismissed for cause" from the investigations, but the FBI agent denied that had happened, saying he was dismissed over the "perception" from the text messages he exchanged with FBI attorney Lisa Page, with whom he was having an affair.

"Mr. Strzok, I don't know where to start", Cohen said as he started his allotted five minutes.

Gowdy seized on one message that has received particular attention from right-wing media outlets, an August 8, 2016, text in which Strzok, discussing with Page the prospect of a Trump win, says, "No".

Jabari Parker on the verge of offer sheet from Bulls
Maybe the Milwaukee Bucks chose to give Parker a sizable deal, or maybe another team will swoop in and pay the 25-year-old wing. Parker, 23, has played for the Bucks for four years, after they drafted him with the No. 2 overall pick in 2014.

Strzok tried to respond, but Gohmert cut him off, insisting that he was not allowed to answer due to hearing rules that the witness could only respond if a representative asked a direct question. Strzok was pulled off the Mueller investigation past year after the Justice Department's internal watchdog made the special prosecutor aware of the texts.

New York Rep. Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said he thought it was against House rules to impugn the character of a witness. We " ll stop it".

"Have you no decency!" shouted another.

"He thinks promising to stop someone he is supposed to be fairly investigating from ever becoming president isn't bias", Gowdy said.

"It's just an outrage that people in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the FBI that I spent most of my adult life and loved what we did for the American people, you know, can promote somebody with all these character flaws to such a high position", he said.

SA's Kevin Anderson foils John Isner to reach maiden Wimbledon final
The eighth seed will face either twice champion Rafael Nadal or three-times victor Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final. The duo smashed the record for the longest semifinal match at Wimbledon , and they weren't close to finished.

Once special counsel Robert Mueller found out about his text messages he fired him from the Russian Federation investigation.

"I've talked to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents around the country", Gohmert continued, visibly upset.

Peter Strzok testified publicly for the first time since being removed from special counsel Robert Mueller's team after the discovery of derogatory text messages he traded with an Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer.

The contentious hearing follows hours of closed-door questioning last week.

Strzok sought to clear the air over his messages and volunteered to testify after the Justice Department inspector general, Michael Horowitz, released a report in June revealing how senior Federal Bureau of Investigation officials repeatedly expressed support for Clinton and disdain for Trump during the election.

S'pore maintains position as Asia's most innovative country
The Global Innovation Index 2018 placed SA one place below fellow BRICS member India in 57th place, and ahead of Brazil and Egypt. This represents a leap of five places from past year and another noticeable improvement after it broke into the top 25 in 2016.

"It felt like a public lynching", Dana Perino, a Fox News Host and a former White House press secretary under President George W Bush, said of the Republicans' interrogation of Strzok.
