FOX News: In today’s congressional hearings with FBI Agent Peter Strzok, a fiery exchange between the senator and FBI agent took place. Gowdy’s response came after Strzok said he was booted from the Russia probe over an “appearance” issue and not because of “bias,” he said he didn’t appreciate him saying otherwise.
Excerpt from FOX News:
“Agent Strzok had Hillary Clinton winning the White House before he finished investigating her,” Gowdy said. “Agent Strzok had Donald Trump impeached before he even started investigating him. That is bias. Agent Strzok may not see it but the rest of the country does, and it is not what we want, expect or deserve from any law enforcement officer much less the FBI.”
Gowdy then berated Strzok over the content of his text messages, his purported bias against Trump and why he was taken off of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling into the 2016 election.
Strzok was testifying publicly on Capitol Hill for the first time since the release of a Justice Department inspector general report that heavily criticized his comments. Strzok has claimed he never allowed personal opinions to taint his work.
