FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok was called to testify before the House judiciary committee on Thursday and was questioned about his anti-Trump behavior during multiple investigations surrounding the 2016 presidential election.

Republican Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe got into a particularly fierce exchange with the embattled and disgraced FBI agent.

Ratcliffe hammered Strzok for claiming to be unbiased even after showing a clear distaste toward then-candidate Donald Trump during text messages to his colleagues. Ratcliffe asked if the anti-Trump texts were sent on FBI time and on FBI phones. Strzok confirmed that they were — a response that enraged Ratcliffe.

“What you meant to say was ‘except for 50,000 times, hundreds of times of day where I went back and forth expressing my personal opinions about stopping Trump and impeaching Trump on official FBI phones, on official FBI time,’” Ratcliffe vented. “Other than that you never cross that line.”

Ratcliffe continued: “I’m sure there are 13,000 FBI agents out there beaming with pride at how clearly you have drawn that line. Are you starting to understand why some folks out there don’t believe a word you say?”

The Texas Rep. concluded — “And that you were in charge of an investigation, investigating, gathering evidence against Donald Trump, a subject that you hated, that you wanted to ‘eff’ him, to stop him, to impeach him. Do you see why that might call into question everything you’ve touched on all of those investigations? Chairman, I’m done with this witness and I yield back.”

    I find it rather enlightening that Mr Strzok admitted the text messages to Lisa page were completed on an FBI issued
    phone. He then stated at times he didn’t recall texting this or that. Then states he doesn’t believe he wrote that.

    An FBI issued phone is impossible to hack into. They are one of the most secure devices on the planet at this time.

    So, how is it that Mr Strzok manages to declare that he doesn’t “believe” he wrote any text in particular?

    What a joke, lying, scum, succubus, piece of dirty, Hillary Clinton lap dog, tid bit of trash Peter Strzok is.

    Where is Jeff Sessions? I hate to say it but President Trump made a bad choice in the spineless man who is absent from this whole mess. Looks like the Deep State has effectively neutered Jeff Sessions who is not serving our nation per his ‘vow’ to put America first.

    This was a highlight amongst all highlights! For Strzok to be as busy an agent that he said he was, where did he find time for 100 texts a day to his lover Page?
