Louie Gohmert Jabs at Strzok With Extramarital Affair Callout

He illustrated the GOP fruitlessness with one "standout moment" in which Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) "made [President] Trump's case that the probe is a "witch hunt" by attacking Strzok as a philanderer, not a trace of irony on his face".

"Lisa has cooperated voluntarily with another congressional committee that had no objection to explaining the scope of its investigation or providing sufficient notice for her interview".

Committee members sought to question Strzok about the texts and to determine how, if at all, his anti-Trump bias impacted the investigations.

"In the majority's view, we do not have time to conduct oversight on nearly any national security issue - but we have hours on end to discuss Mr. Strzok's extramarital affair", Nadler said.

The remark caused an eruption in the room, with some members saying it was "outrageous" and one female lawmaker, later identified on social media as New Jersey Democratic Rep. And Representative Bonnie Watson Coleman said, "I have never seen my colleagues so out of control, so angry".

"This is about promoting a narrative, you're a prop", said Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I.

"The fact that you would question whether or not that was the sort of look I would engage within a family member who I have acknowledged hurting goes more to a discussion about your character and what you stand for", Strzok struck back.

"'Did you let your political opinion affect your official duty in any way?' I expect her to say no", he said.

The partisan fighting began from the very first question of the day, which prompted Goodlatte to threaten holding Strzok in contempt amid Democratic protests over whether Strzok could answer questions about the Russian Federation investigation.

But while reinforcing his dislike for Trump, Strzok repeated several times that he did not believe that the messages showed bias, to the frustration and disbelief of Republicans. "I think not", Goodlatte said.


"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. "What does Trump support smell like Mister Strzok?" 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. "It was in no way, unequivocally, any suggestion that me, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, would take any action whatsoever to improperly impact the electoral process for any candidate".

"I am certain that Congress will have the opportunity to look at any investigation once it is closed", he said. "I clearly wasn't smelling one thing or the other", Strzok responded.

He said Strzok's texts were "the ideal foil" for Republicans.

"Now call upon the majority to release that transcript in full today", Nadler said.

Page is expected to speak to lawmakers at a private meeting Friday.

"Ex-FBI LAYER Lisa Page today defied a House of Representatives issued Subpoena to testify before Congress!"

"Lisa Page has finally agreed to appear before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees for a transcribed interview tomorrow", Goodlatte said in a statement.

"[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right?"

During the marathon hearing, Democrats staunchly defended Strzok.
