Congressional Hearing Gets Heated, Democrats Move To Shield Peter Strzok
If you had the opportunity to catch anti-Trump “G-man” Peter Strzok giving his testimony to Congress, then you saw the chaos today. If you didn’t, you missed a circus-style performance by Democrats that would’ve made P.T. Barnum green with envy.
Today, Congressional Democrats provided Americans with an up close and personal glimpse at their obstructionist attitudes. All their customary diversionary tactics were on full display in an effort to shield former FBI agent Peter Strzok from mean ole’ Republicans.
On Thursday, Strzok testified in an open hearing about anti-Trump texts he exchanged with mistress Lisa Page. Of course, Strzok set the tone from the beginning when he defended his hatred of Donald Trump as though it was his civic duty.
“Like many people, I had and expressed personal political opinions during an extraordinary presidential election,” Strzok said in his opening statement. “Many contained expressions of concern for the security of our country and were expressed out of “deep patriotism.”
We didn’t know it’s a matter of patriotism and national security to refer to Trump supporters as “ignorant hillbillies,” did you?
Nevertheless, in his opening remarks, House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy highlighted Strzok’s “unusual and largely self-serving” definition of bias. Shortly after his statement the hearing descended into chaos.
Responding to Gowdy’s comments, Strzok said he didn’t “appreciate” how the chairman framed his actions. “I don’t give a damn what you appreciate, Agent Strzok,” the South Carolina Congressman replied. He then moved to address the reasons Strzok was there in the first place.
That’s when the real fireworks started.
