FBI agent defiant as Republicans claim bias in Trump investigation

Strzok endured roughly 11 hours of testimony before House lawmakers Thursday, with many Republicans focusing on his text of "we'll stop it" in reference to Trump's campaign.

The official took part in the investigation regarding Hillary Clinton " s use of a private email server for official communications during her tenure as US Secretary of State and was involved in the Russian Federation probe, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, although he was taken off the case after his text exchange was revealed. He was removed from the Russian Federation investigation after the discovery of anti-Trump text messages exchanged with an FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, with whom he was having an affair. Meanwhile, Republicans held him up as a symbol of an agency overrun by anti-Trump bias.

"Let's understand what they are suggesting here: Getting rid ICE, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and having no one at all patrol the borders", he said at a press conference. "It taints the entire Mueller witchunt".

"President Trump should absolutely cancel this meeting with Putin", Mr. Perez said. "All the results of the investigation are "fruit of the poison tree" and should be dismissed", Giuliani tweeted, his first message on the social media platform since December 2016.

At this point, Gohmert cut back in, and the two spoke loudly over one another.

Democratic members of the House committees participating in Strzok's hearing broke out into choruses of objections and repeatedly spoke over GOP lawmakers attempting to question Strzok.

The most touching note came from one whose name was not clear: "I'm doing fine, but the air is a little cold, but don't worry". Elon Musk has continued working on alternative strategies to rescue the remaining Thai boys stranded in Northern Thailand .

"As I head out to a very important North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting, I see that FBI Lover/Agent Lisa Page is dodging a Subpoena & is refusing to show up and testify", Trump tweeted early Thursday morning.

Republicans yelled at Strzok and pointed fingers at him, making it clear they did not believe him.

Other Democrats shouted Gohmert down themselves, crying out "Shame on you, Mr. Gohmert!" and "Insane asylum!" "And I can't help but wonder when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife's eye and lie to her about Lisa Page?". Strzok, unlike Page, remains employed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Perino called Gohmert's attack "way overboard" and also faulted Democrats for their "outrageous" defense of the witness. But they argued they are doing important oversight work holding the FBI accountable for how it handled the Clinton and Russian Federation investigations in 2016.

Our friend Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller unpacked Rep. Gohmert's revelation further pointing out that ICIG found an "anomaly on Hillary Clinton's emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list". "As soon as you bring cameras into this situation you have all of this grandstanding".

"President Trump should cancel his meeting with Vladimir Putin until Russian Federation takes demonstrable and transparent steps to prove that they won't interfere in future elections", the New York Democrat said.
