Louie Gohmert Blows up Committee Hearing by Pointing Out FBI Agent's Adultery

Representative Gohmert questioned the character of FBI agent Peter Strzok in a heated exchange.

Today’s testimony before the House Oversight and Judiciary committees by FBI agent Peter Strzok has been explosive, to say the least.

Strzok is the agent removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, after it was discovered that he and an FBI attorney named Lisa Page were sharing anti-Trump texts.

Strzok and Page were also carrying on an illicit affair, unfortunately, and during the very heated exchanges between Strzok and members of the committee, it got really personal, when one lawmaker decided to go there.

In specific, Representative Louis Gohmert (R-TX) went there.

Throughout the day’s hearing, Strzok claimed that there was no bias in what he called “hyberbolic” text messages between he and Page.

Gohmert wasn’t having that, and accused him of lying to Congress, not just about the presumed bias against President Trump, but also in his testimony about the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.

"You've embarrassed yourself, and I can't help but wonder when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife's eye and lie to her about Lisa," Gohmert said during a hearing of the House oversight and judiciary committees.

He’s got a point. The guy cheated on his wife, so it’s not like he’s a good guy.

Gohmert’s remarks caused Democrats in the chamber to GO NUTS!

"Mr. Chairman, this is outrageous!" one Democrat shouted.

"Do you need your medication?" a female Democrat shouted at Gohmert.

I can’t be sure, but I think the female who shouted out was Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, who earlier in the hearing said that President Trump was meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin to receive his annual performance review.

And yes. I laughed.

For his part, Strzok has been firm throughout the day, even going hard at some really harsh questioning by Reps. Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy.

In answering Gohmert, Strzok shot back:

"I assure you under oath ... I have always told the truth," Strzok told Gohmert. "The fact that you would accuse me otherwise, the fact that you would question whether or not that was the sort of look I would engage with in a family member who I have acknowledged hurting goes more to a discussion about your character and what you stand for."

You will never get me to defend any adulterer. Strzok is no different. He’s a cad.

But how is he, as an agent?

Gohmert’s attack on a personal failing has been defended as pertinent, as it speaks to character, and that those with questionable character are more prone to manipulation by bad actors.

Ok. I’m willing to accept that.

With that being the case, how much more should Gohmert and anybody defending his performance today be concerned about the kind of person we’ve allowed to lead this nation, and the fact that he’s about to take a private meeting abroad with our nation’s greatest geopolitical foe?

Donald Trump is an unrepentant adulterer, with multiple wives and multiple mistresses.

If Louie Gohmert has such a problem with adultery, we should expect him to abandon the Trump train immediately.

If Louie Gohmert had railed on Trump as he has Strzok he would be known as “Little Gohmer” today.

"The thing about Trump is that he does not lie about his failings."

bwhahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahhahaahahahahahaha!

Keep in mind that what you read out of the IG report is a Rorschach blot without the proper context...

  • "The best way to understand an inspector general (IG) report is less as a fiercely independent investigation that seeks justice and more like what you’d expect from a company’s human resources department. Employees frequently think that a company’s human resources department exists to serve employees. There’s some truth in that, but it’s more true that the human resources department exists to serve the corporation.

At the end of the day, the HR department wants what’s best for the company. The FBI’s IG Michael Horowitz has a good reputation for good reason. But his report is in support of the FBI and its policies and procedures. As such, the findings will be focused on helping the FBI improve its adherence to those policies and procedures. Those who expected demands for justice in the face of widespread evidence of political bias and poor judgment by immature agents and executives were people unfamiliar with the purpose of IG reports.

The IG is also a government bureaucrat producing government products that are supposed to be calm and boring. In the previous report that led to Andrew McCabe’s firing as deputy director of the FBI and referral for criminal prosecution, his serial lying under oath was dryly phrased as “lack of candor.” In this report detailing widespread problems riddled throughout the Clinton email probe, the language is similarly downplayed. That’s particularly true in the executive summary, which attempts to downplay the actual details that fill the report with evidence of poor decision-making, extreme political bias, and problematic patterns of behavior."
... ...
The report goes on to say that the text messages and Strzok’s decision to prioritize the counterintelligence probe of the Trump campaign over the Clinton email criminal investigation “led us to conclude that we did not have confidence that Strzok’s decision was free from bias.” "*

Strzok and the rest of the pro-Hillary "good ol' boys" club at the FBI are slime, and Team Trump is slime. They are all guilty. There are no good guys in this fiasco.

So now pointing out the hypocrisy of Mr. Stzrok regarding lying can be broadened to include similar behavior regarding the President of the United States. Doesn't that then open Pandora's Box to be never closed again.

Has Mr. Trump lied before a Congressional Committee? Has Mr. Trump targeted a specific individual and then used the Federal government to take that individual down? Has Mr. Trump produced thousands of e-mails with the direct purpose and intent to bring down another individual.

For over a year and a half, the Democrat Party, the Media and the legion of BabblingHead "expert" have visiciously with unrelenting venom done everything in their Collective power to destroy a President for being who he is period.

Multi-millions of Americans know the kind of man Donald Trump as they knew the kind of women Hillary Clinton was. They cast their vote and the Electoral College did the same. The winner was Donald J Trump. Except the obvious and get over it and move on down the road of life.

Please explain HOW? one can trust a single word Mr. Strzok says when his track record is foggy to say the least. He is an expert at Lying, Deceiving and Misinforming and anyone who watch the hearing or saw clips coming from it would draw similar conclusion.
