Embattled FBI Agent Peter Strzok Defiantly Defends Himself at Heated House Hearing

Rep. Steve Cohen

Strzok helped lead two of the FBI's most high-profile investigations: inquiries into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Strzok was caught having an affair with former agent Lisa Page, and text messages between them revealed a strong anti-Trump sentiment.

Peter Strzok's 10-hour showdown with congressional lawmakers, a made-for-TV spectacle that featured far more drama than substance, was an airing of the deep partisan divide surrounding the special counsel's investigation into whether associates of Donald Trump conspired with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election.

Goodlatte told Strzok he could answer, though Gohmert was visibly displeased.

Further, Strzok admitted on Thursday there are further texts on his personal phone that have never been made available, said Issa.

"My presumption [was] based on that terrible, disgusting behavior that the American population would not elect somebody demonstrating that behavior to be president of the United States", Strzok explained.

"Let me be clear, unequivocally and under oath: not once in my 26 years of defending my nation did my personal opinions impact any official action I took", he is expected to say.

Russian Federation has since been supporting them financially and militarily. Canada will extend its military influence in Latvia for 4 further years.

"I've talked to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents around the country". Strzok has since been reassigned within the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

On Thursday, Strzok testified publicly over a 10-hour span, during which Republicans and Democrats got into several shouting matches, including one particularly explosive moment after Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican, asked Strzok did he look into his "wife's eye and lie to her about Lisa Page".

"I have the utmost respect for Congress's oversight role, but I truly believe that today's hearing is just another victory notch in Putin's belt and another milestone in our enemies' campaign to tear America apart", Strzok said.

Strzok replied, "No, Mr. Gowdy, it wasn't".

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

"It wasn't the discovery of your texts, Mr. Strzok". Horowitz told lawmakers after the report's release that he is not confident that Strzok was unbiased during the FBI's investigation into Clinton's emails. Strzok was pulled off the Mueller investigation past year after the Justice Department's internal watchdog made the special prosecutor aware of the texts. Strzok's lawyer has said he was escorted from the Federal Bureau of Investigation building last month as the disciplinary process winds its way through the system.
