Strzok Public Testimony - and so it begins.
It seems Dems are now effectively "filibustering" this testimony.
They do not want him to speak.
Gowdy: That is a fantastic answer to a question nobody asked...
Gowdy: No wonder Mueller kicked you off his investigation.
Gowdy just crushing Strzok
According to Cummings "protecting our way of life" includes being so biased you are removed from SC Investigation and relegated to HR for Bias.
Strzok has two faces.
His calm, composed, reasonable "I'm an honest guy" face.
And his "oh Sh*t, it's Gowdy face".
Lesson: Keep the pressure on him. Fluster him.
It works.
Cummings more effective than a sleeping pill
Goodlatte: Was it normal behavior to chat w/your colleagues...on how much you despise the very person your investigating?
Goodlatte: Did you ever consider recusing yourself since you had such disdain for the person you were investigating?
Strzok: I did not.
Strzok now attempting to lecture Goodlatte.
He is failing.
FBI General Counsel came up w/approved list of questions.
Anything else...Strzok told not to answer.
Nadler demanding release of Strzok closed-hearing transcript.
Goodlatte: Not today
Reminder: Dems want transcript out so it can serve as template/guide for all other pending testimony.

One testimony to rule them all.
The next time Congress wonders why they are so despised by the public...
Make them watch this hearing
Strzok: "Gross Negligence" triggered a very specific legal meaning.
Sensenbrenner: Yeah, criminal.
Duncan: Strzok will stubbornly not admit what everyone else knows was Extreme Bias.
Ratcliffe: When you said you never crossed that line you meant except for those 50,000 times (texts).
Are you beginning to understand why some folks don't believe a word you say?
One Hour Recess
Closing Segment of 1st half.

Goodlatte: The gentleman just answered questions regarding substance of the Trump-Russia Collusion Investigation.
We have many more questions we are entitled to ask and the gentleman is responsible for answering...
Observation on Gowdy.
Fireworks Statement at both this & Rosenstein Hearing.
BUT - Statement ONLY.
Asked NO Questions.
About those Intelligence Community Assessments...…
Congressman: Shouldn't such a wide disparity of political support give America concern?
Cohen's Purple Heart comment just lit my notifications UP.
He's a Blithering idiot.
Thank God Jordan is following Cohen
Jordan asking about differing Dossier versions mentioned in Strzock texts. References David Corn as well.
Covered in this article.…
Strzok: The most I can say is we received a variety of copies...
Gowdy: You don't recall in an investigation you initiated how many witnesses you interviewed in the first week?
Gowdy: When you are prejudging the conviction AND the sentence when you have not conducted a single interview, that is letting you bias impact your professional judgment.
What the hell is Clay even saying?
Gowdy notes Strzock talking Impeachment - twice.
Just FIVE DAYS after Mueller appointed.
Strzok: The [texts] don't represent a bias because the Inspector General said so.

Strzok: Take the texts in the totality of the context that they were made.

Me: Done.
Gohmert: You didn't seem to be all that concerned about the national integrity of our election when it was involving Hillary Clinton.
Poe: Your words prove your bias. Your attitude proves your bias. Your arrogance proves your bias. An your "protesting too much" proves your bias.
Poe: The scary part about that is not whether your biased or not. The scary part of it is - "What about other people in the FBI? What about people we don't know about who have the same attitude as you.
Poe responds: I don't believe you.
Strzok still has his Security Clearance
Congressman [Marino?]: You are your own worst enemy. You have an answer for everything. You have an attitude that is very obvious today. You are the kind of witness...that I as a prosecutor would love to get on the stand.
Jordan: At the time you were working with Ohr, did you know he was meeting w/representatives from Fusion including Glenn Simpson?
Strzok: May I consult w/counsel?
Per counsel, Strzok won't answer. Same for question on Nellie Ohr.
Strzok says he's never spoken with Jones or Simpson
Strzok: My explanation for impeachment was I considered it.
Gowdy: How many indictments have there been of Americans for collusion w/Russia.
Strzok: I couldn't answer that question.
Gowdy: Sure you could. You worked on the investigation.
Gowdy: Starting with the political death penalty in Impeachment is not the logical way a neutral dispassionate investigator conducts...

Dems lose their f-ing minds...
These Democrats are embarrassingly dumb.
It's mind-numbing to listen to them.
It's even more painful to consider they were actually voted into office.
The reason why Strzok was looking so uncomfortable:
DeSantis: The idea that there's no bias here, that's just not credible:
DeSantis: We see the bias...your [explanations] are really not credible. We're trying to get to the genesis of "why open up a counterintelligence investigation into the opposing party's campaign"..
You say there's no there. And you can't even identify any reason
Jordan: Dis Bruce Ohr ever give you documents.
Strzok: The FBI says I can't answer that question.
Strzok: The FBI has directed me that the FBI - not me - received documents from Bruce Ohr.
Jordan: Did the FBI receive the Dossier from Bruce Ohr.
Strzok: Uh...The FBI received material..
Strzok cannot answer if Strzok knew Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion at the time Strzok was meeting w/ Bruce Ohr.
Grassley actually disclosed the Ohr interviews back on March 15, 2018 - when grassley included a Feb 28, 2018 letter to IG Horowitz. Dates were in footnotes.…
Round Three. Ugh
Strzok: Ohr provided information to the FBI that included material - what everybody's calling the Dossier.

Ohr provided elements of reporting to the FBI that originated with Steele.
Strzok: Ohr gave the FBI documents which included material I believe originated with Mr. Steele.
Finally. What everyone knows has now been said out loud and under oath.
Ohr funneled the Dossier to the FBI.
One big circular laundering operation.
Lots of questioning re: texts and did Mueller inquire about them.
Answer. Mueller did not.
Gaetz: Mueller didn't ask because Mueller did not want to know the answer.
FBI Agent Gaeta went to London to meet with Steele and obtain Dossier on July 5, 2016. Gaeta obtained permission from Victoria Nuland who saw Dossier (what existed at the time) upon Gaeta's return - before FBI leadership.…
