The Justice Department's inspector general has criticized Strzok and Page for creating the appearance of impropriety.
Strzok struck a combative tone throughout the hearing, telling congressmen, "Today's hearing is just another victory notch in Putin's belt and another milestone in our enemies' campaign to tear America apart".
Louie Gohmert caused an uproar at a congressional hearing Thursday when he accused an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent of lying under oath and asked him "how many times" did he look "so innocently into [his] wife's eyes and lie to her" about a marital affair. "It was the existence of your bias that got you kicked off", Gowdy said.
He said Republicans were pressing Page about the intent behind the text messages she had exchanged with Strzok, which included many anti-Trump missives, as well as a message in which Strzok had said "we'll stop" Trump.
In an exchange with Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of SC, chair of the House Oversight Committee, Strzok defended his "we'll stop" Trump text.
'Shame on you, ' one lawmaker shouted. 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.
FBI Director Chris Wray says employees who were singled out for criticism in the report have been referred to internal disciplinary officials. "It simply couldn't happen".
