Democrats Literally Cheer on FBI's Peter Strzok During His Testimony - Katie Pavlich

Peter Strzok the FBI agent facing criticism following a series of anti Trump text messages walks to gives a deposition before the House Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington. Strzok whose anti-Trump

"It is not a hoax".

An FBI agent who criticized then-presidential candidate Donald Trump in text messages during the 2016 election campaign vigorously defended himself on Thursday, telling a heated congressional hearing that his personal political views had never affected his official work.

In the prepared remarks, Strzok acknowledges 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 as well as Sen.

Page, who has also been subpoenaed, is expected to speak to lawmakers at a private meeting Friday.

Strzok is unique in that he sent a series of text messages to senior Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page insulting Trump, and these were later made public by the Department of Justice. His lawyer has argued that the public hearing is an attempt by Republicans to "trap" Strzok, and they have urged the committee's Republicans to release the transcript of his closed-door interview.

"Agent Strzok, that is a fantastic answer to a question that nobody asked", Gowdy fired back.

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

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".

Jonathan Crenshaw, 46, used his feet to hold scissors and stabbed Cesar Coronado , 22, Miami Beach police said Wednesday. He and a female friend who was present said Coronado asked Crenshaw for directions and was attacked, police said.

But Goodlatte dismissed Nadler's objections and members of the committees joined in the bickering for several minutes before Gowdy continued his questioning - which drew further objection from other members of the House committees.

"So that's why we sent the marshals to her house, to serve the subpoena", he explained.

Mr. Gowdy, South Carolina Republican, questioned Mr. Strzok about his dismissal from Mr. Mueller's team, saying the texts disparaging President Trump showed he was biased.

You don't have to like Peter Strzok, or James Comey, or Robert Mueller, or anyone else involved in these various investigations.

"I do not have bias", he continued, adding that he believed he was sacked not because his personal opinions impacted his work, but because the texts gave the "perception" of bias.

In terms of the texts that 'We will stop it, ' you need to understand that that was written late at night, off the cuff, and it was in response to a series of events that included then-candidate Trump insulting the immigrant family of a fallen war hero and my presumption, based on that awful, disgusting behavior, that the American population would not elect somebody demonstrating that behavior to be president of the United States.
