Democratic lawmaker regrets call for 'Purple Heart' for Strzok

Democratic lawmaker regrets call for 'Purple Heart' for Strzok

Strzok has since been reassigned within the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

One particular moment from Peter Strzok's raucous congressional hearing left Twitter users confounded and disturbed, even prompting Donald Trump Jr to label the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent "the creepiest person in America".

"The top DOJ official, Bruce Ohr, actually hands parts of the dossier to the Federal Bureau of Investigation". Last year, he was reassigned from Mueller's team after the compromising texts emerged.

Democrats threw their support behind Strzok with gusto. "I don't think you'll have any, 'Gee, I didn't, I didn't, you got me, '" he told reporters.

"Peter Strzok's testimony was a disgrace", Rudy Giuliani, a lawyer for the president, said on Twitter. That occurred, the official said, when Gowdy pressed for more details of the use of confidential sources who had assisted the FBI in the initial stages of the investigation.

Goodlatte then tried to let Strzok respond to Gohmert's statements after the Texas Republican's time ended.

Strzok was removed from that role after anti-Trump text messages between Strzok and an Federal Bureau of Investigation attorney - Lisa Page, the woman with whom he was having an affair - were published.

Two Foreign Affairs Democrats, ranking member Eliot L. Engel of NY and Ted Lieu of California, joined House Armed Services Chairman Adam Smith, Rep. "No, he's not. We'll stop it".

While some lawmakers are demanding that President Donald Trump immediately cancel his upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin following the indictment on Friday of 12 Russian military officers for "conspiring to interfere with the 2016 presidential election", Sen. Her apparent consideration in answering lawmakers' questions served as contrast to the raucous testimony on Thursday of embattled Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok before the same congressional committees. He said the text, written late at night and off-the-cuff, reflected his belief that the American public would not stomach such "horrible, disgusting behavior" by the Republican presidential candidate.

The hearing exposed clear partisan divides in the House judiciary and oversight committees, as Democrats accused Republicans of trying to divert attention from Trump's ties to Russian Federation by excessively focusing on Strzok. "You've embarrassed them, you've embarrassed yourself and I can't help but wonder when I see you looking with a little smirk - how many times did you look so innocent into your wife's eye and lie to her about Lisa Page?"

"But the thought of exposing that information never crossed my mind". More significant though, is that it also implies something quite ominous.

FBI Director Chris Wray says employees who were singled out for criticism in the report have been referred to internal disciplinary officials.

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page will be interviewed by two congressional committees this week, after declining to appear earlier this week.
