Had Damaging Information On Donald Trump, Says FBI Agent Peter Strzok

FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok testifies before the House Committees on the Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform during a hearing

House Republican leaders threatened to hold former FBI lawyer Lisa Page in contempt of Congress unless she agrees to testify by Friday morning about her role in the bureau's probes into Hillary Clinton's emails and President Donald Trump's suspected Russian Federation ties. He said Strzok's texts were "the flawless foil" for Republicans. Finally, after months of waiting, Strzok got his chance to address that matter - and delivered a scorching monologue fit for the climax of an Aaron Sorkin script.

"I don't give a damn what you appreciate, agent Strzok".

"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.

The hearing was often raucous and seemed at times more like a TV comedy about Congress than a real committee hearing. "You've embarrassed them, you've embarrassed yourself, and I can't help but wonder when I see you looking there with a little smirk - how many times did you look so innocently into your wife's eye and lie to her about Lisa Page?". Strzok further went on to emphasize that no text he sent would ever influence his conduct in an investigation against the president, and that Republican attempts to undermine the FBI were a "victory notch in Putin's belt".

Twitter CEO loses 200,000 followers in fake account purge
He lost just 326,118 followers on Thursday, the day before most accounts saw a drop, and on Friday he regained 5,339 followers. The social-media company warned on Wednesday that its crackdown on fake accounts means users will have fewer followers.

Strzok responded to Gohmert's questioning and attacks by saying he "always told the truth".

A recent Justice Department inspector general report found that the actions of some agents - including the messages from Strzok and Page, who according to the report, were having an extramarital affair - damaged the FBI's credibility, but that none of the decision-making in the Clinton probe was affected by political bias.

They often interrupted Strzok and one another.

The House Judiciary and Oversight committees held a joint public hearing with Strzok on Thursday, following a separate closed-door interview with him as well as a contentious open hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Chris Wray two weeks ago.

'Do not eat this cereal': CDC links Honey Smacks, salmonella
At the time, there were a number of salmonella cases in New England, including five in MA and one in New Hampshire. Salmonella can also travel from the intestines to the bloodstream and ultimately the rest of the body.

"To my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, please replace President Trump's name with your own name in a small sample of things Mr. Strzok has said", he said. And particularly damaging was the fact that, according to unnamed U.S. officials, Strzok played a role in changing former FBI Director James Comey's wording regarding how she handled classified information from "gross negligence" to the noncriminal "extremely careless".

"President Trump is being investigated by people who possess pathological hatred for him", Giuliani said. He said the FBI's Trump investigation originated not out of personal animus but rather from concern that Russia was seeking to meddle in the election, including what he said were credible allegations of a Russian offer of assistance to a Trump campaign associate.

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.

"I like Louie Gohmert a lot, [but] I thought that moment, that exchange with Gohmert and Strzok, I don't think that was good", she concluded. Strzok's lawyer has said he was escorted from the Federal Bureau of Investigation building as the disciplinary process winds its way through the system.
