FARCE 101: Trump's captured House GOP are pretending they're having an oversight hearing when in fact they brought FBI agent Peter Strzok to badger & hold him in contempt. @RepGoodlatte just had a fit, made up rules, yelled at Dems, told Strzok he couldn't talk w his lawyer.
"At no time did my personal beliefs enter the realm of my work"—FBI #Strzok defends his negative texts about Trump. He said he wrote them late at night after he heard Trump's attacks on a Gold Star family and he was "disgusted" that someone running for president would do that.
Behold an incompetent witch hunt: Benghazi bulldog Gowdy’s mic drop really belongs to Strzok. In recounting his disgust at Trump insulting a GoldStar family, Strzok exposed just how morally bankrupt these disgraceful corrupt lapdog Republicans have become🎤
.@LacyClayMO1: Republicans are more interested in Strzok texts while the president does more damage to the Western alliance than the sum total of ALL previous Russian + Soviet leaders could've dreamed of. All of you should be ashamed of yourselves, putting Trump above our natsec.
🙄Go low Louie @replouiegohmert to #Strzok: How come you weren't concerned about election integrity when it involved Hillary Clinton? I see your little smirk. How many times did you look into your wife's eyes with that innocent smirk & lie?
Dem moans: You need your medication!
.@GerryConnolly: Wow. The American public might be forgiven for mistaking this hearing for a Russian political show trial. It's got all the trappings—character assassination, demagoguery, cherry-picking & fabricating facts. It's astounding & a new low for US Congress. #Strzok
Rep Connolly makes key & obscured point by the GOP campaign to taint Strzok & Mueller investigation generally: Saying negative things about Trump and not wanting him to be president was the majority view in the country—including from prominent Republicans. #Strzok was no outlier.
The insanity & abuse of this Republican witch hunt hearing: If Strzok wanted bias to impact his work, he would've done something to hurt Trump, like leak to the public that the FBI was investigating him for collusion with Russia. He did not. And he barely worked on Mueller team.
.@RepGutierrez: Congratulations, Kremlin. The only ones happy w/ this hearing is FoxNews & the Kremlin. Both work for Trump. I never thought I'd see a time when US Congress wouldn't investigate such an irrefutable attack on our democracy by Russia, but we investigate #Strzok.
🔥@RepBonnie: This POTUS disgraces this country every day. He embraces our enemies, disrespects our allies. Republicans say nothing. I have never seen my colleagues so out of control, so angry, and so desperate to protect a President who we all know is not fit to be president.
🔥RepBonnie: If anybody should be pissed at the FBI—b/c you all helped this unfit man become POTUS by not revealing to the people that he was under investigation—it should be me. They [Republicans] should be kissing you…b/c but for you, we'd have a legitimate president. #Strzok
(Funny how "totally false allegations" about knowing of the sexual abuse of 11 college wrestlers has so dramatically toned down Trump propagandist Ohio Rep Jim Jordan, who just a week or so ago was the House GOP pitbull at hearing w/ Dep AG Rosenstein. He's pretty calm w #Strzok)
Oy This guy got elected?? GOP Gosar tells #Strzok he's good at reading body language b/c he's a dentist 😬, then announces the US isn't a democracy 😳, and the pièce de résistance: he can't remember what the electoral college is 🤦‍♀️ via @atrupar
Closer @JacksonLeeTX18: "When our country gets attacked, I want to make sure it's the FBI and not the KGB that shows up." 🎤
