Attacks on FBI a ‘victory’ for President Putin — FBI lover’ agent

Attacks on FBI a ‘victory’ for President Putin — FBI lover’ agent

The two agents disparaged Trump throughout 2016, describing him as an "idiot" and a "menace".

Page and Strzok both worked on the FBI investigation into Clinton's emails and, later, on special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

Krishnamoorthi, during a hearing with the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, was walking Strzok through a number of sections in the recent Justice Department Inspector General report on the FBI's handling of the Clinton investigation.

Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston said Gowdy was "assuming" Strzok's position on an issue. "It is not a hoax".

"We were deeply troubled by text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page that potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations", the Justice Department's inspector general wrote in its June report. That difficulty aside, Strzok's claim that what he meant in saying "we'll stop it" was that voters won't elect Trump is ludicrous.

"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".

Although the president had just concluded a long day of meetings at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, his mind was clearly on Washington, as he tweeted about the "Rigged Witch Hunt" and Mr Strzok's "hate filled and totally biased Emails" just before 01:00 local time.

The hearing immediately got off to a contentious start Thursday, with Republicans slamming Strzok and Democrats warning their colleagues not to interfere with Mueller's investigation.

Trump weighed in on Twitter during his departure from a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels on Thursday, slamming Page for "dodging a subpoena" to avoid being grilled by the House committees.

An embattled Federal Bureau of Investigation agent whose anti-Trump text messages exposed the Justice Department to claims of institutional bias launched a vigorous defense Thursday at an extraordinary congressional hearing that devolved into shouting matches, finger-pointing and veiled references to personal transgressions.

Who Is Brett Kavanaugh Trump Supreme Court Nominee
Trump is committed to placing an extreme ideologue on the Court, who could endanger environmental protections, overturn Roe v. Trump is expected to pressure recalcitrant Senate Democrats into supporting his nominee by holding rallies in their states.

"That is bias", Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said in a fiery opening statement.

"Well hang on a second Agent Strzok!"

As far as Gowdy's actual question goes, it turned out Strzok's refusal to answer didn't even matter. As Strzok began to talk, Gohmert tried to prevent Strzok from speaking again, saying he had not asked him a question. Strzok told the Committee that FBI attorneys instructed him not to answer any questions about the ongoing investigation. Nadler retorted, to which Goodlatte responded, "The chairman is being proper".

"We have indulged this harassment [for] nine minutes", Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.), a member of the House Oversight Committee, interjected at one point during Gowdy's questioning.

Mr Strzok would note at one point that information about a Russian offer to help the Trump campaign was of "extraordinary significance" and came from an "extraordinarily sensitive and credible source".

Strzok said he doesn't remember writing the text.

"It would be his candidacy for the presidency", Strzok said.

"You as a counterintelligence officer had no interest in participating in a counterintelligence investigation that was not going to lead to impeachment", Gowdy told Strzok. And many Democrats say actions taken by law enforcement during the campaign season - including announcing a reopening of the investigation into Clinton just days before the election - actually wound up harming the Democratic candidate and aiding the Republican candidate, Trump.

"At no time, in any of those texts, did those personal beliefs ever enter into the realm of any action I took", Strzok said.
