On Thursday, Peter Strzok finally received his well-deserved congressional grilling, and it was quite a chaotic affair.  Over nearly ten hours, there were shouting matches between Strzok and congressional Republicans, there were shouting matches between Republicans and Democrats, and there were quite a few moments that none of us will ever forget.  It was a joint hearing of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees, and the meeting room was absolutely packed.  More than 70 members of the House were in attendance, and many came ready with some very pointed questions.  The following are five of the most controversial moments from Peter Strzok’s ten hour testimony to Congress…

#5 Bob Goodlatte asks Strzok how he can “smell” Trump supporters at a Wal-Mart in southern Virginia…

#4 John Ratcliffe confronts Strzok about using “official FBI phones” on “official FBI time” to talk to Lisa Page about “stopping Trump” and “impeaching Trump”.  The following comes from CNN

“When you said you never crossed that bright, inviolable line, what you meant to say was except for 50,000 times, except for hundreds of times a day where I went back and forth, expressing my personal opinions about ‘f’ing’ Trump and stopping Trump and impeaching Trump on official FBI phones, on official FBI time,” said Rep. John Ratcliffe of Texas.

 

“Agent Strzok, are you starting to understand why some folks out there don’t believe a word you say?” he added.

#3 Darrell Issa forces Strzok to read back some of the anti-Trump text messages that he sent to Lisa Page…

#2 Trey Gowdy uses his extensive legal skills to absolutely grill Strzok about his contradictory statements…

#1 Congressman Gohmert went where nobody else was willing to go when he asked Strzok “how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eye and lie to her about Lisa Page?”  The following comes from CNN

“I’ve talked to FBI agents around the country. You’ve embarrassed them; you’ve embarrassed yourself,” Gohmert said. “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 Page?”

If it was virtually anyone else, I would feel very badly for them.

But if this is the worst that Strzok gets, then he will be getting off very easy.

Strzok definitely qualifies as a member of “the deep state”, and it is very rare for anyone in “the deep state” to be held accountable on this level.

We are in a struggle for the soul of our government, and if we ever hope to turn things around we have got to clean out swamp creatures such as Peter Strzok.  I believe that Thursday’s hearing was certainly a step in the right direction, and hopefully Congress will do much more to restore our faith in the integrity of our law enforcement agencies.

Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues.

One of the things that you should know about me is that I put a very high priority on love. Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, hopefully I am doing it with a loving heart. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another.

The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love.

Another thing that you should know about me is that I am a Christian. And I am one of those Christians that actually believes the Bible, and there are a lot of people out there that don’t like people like that.

I believe that God loves us very much and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die on the cross for our sins.
