Amid the sound and fury from the insufferable Democrats acting as obstructionists and cheerleaders during disgraced FBI Agent Peter Strzok's congressional testimony Thursday, an extremely important revelation was nearly lost in the noise. Multiple GOP lawmakers, including Goodlatte and Gowdy, pointed out that Page has known for more than six months that the committees wanted to interview her; they also argued that she had all the information she needed for an unclassified interview far earlier in the day Tuesday than her lawyer claimed.
"My presumption [was] based on that frightful, disgusting behavior that the American population would not elect somebody demonstrating that behavior to be president of the United States", Strzok explained.
"This is the first time to my knowledge the Federal Bureau of Investigation has admitted that, and it was good that we got some of that information out today".
Strzok responded to Gohmert's questioning and attacks by saying he "always told the truth".
Republicans have cited Page's and Strzok's messages as evidence about what they call bias inside federal law enforcement and that conspirators launched the Russian Federation investigation out of partisan animus.
"I have the utmost respect for Congress's oversight role, but I truly believe that today's hearing is just another victory notch in [Russian President Vladimir] Putin's belt and another milestone in our enemies' campaign to tear America apart". "The FBI has agreed to provide Lisa with her notes and other documents to allow her to prepare, but they have not provided those documents to date, so we are still waiting to work out a reasonable date for her interview".
Rain adds urgency to rescue of last five trapped in cave
Reuters reported that eight players have been rescued in risky attempts by a world-class worldwide team of divers. The entire Wild Boar youth soccer team and its coach have been safely removed from a cave in Thailand.
But in his opening remarks on Thursday to members of the House judiciary and oversight committees, Strzok said there was "no evidence of bias in my professional actions" and defended Mueller's probe. Strzok said he was not alone in holding political opinions, noting that colleagues in 2016 supported both Clinton and Trump but did not reflect those views on the job. The 2008 Republican presidential candidate has repeatedly challenged Mueller's appointment and claimed no collusion took place between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, while personally attacking Mueller and any findings of his probe.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) explained the pivotal testimony that Peter Strzok gave before Congress Thursday.
"I have to say that I was looking forward to this", said Ingraham.
When Strzok declined to answer some questions on the Russian Federation probe, Goodlatte suggested Republicans might recess the hearing and hold him in contempt. Democrats objected and Goodlatte eventually let the hearing proceed.
Gohmert was shouted at when the exchange with Strzok got personal.
"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.
FBI Director Chris Wray says employees who were singled out for criticism in the report have been referred to internal disciplinary officials.
