On Thursday, July 12th, FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok testified in front of a joint hearing of the House Oversight & Government Reform & Judiciary committees. It was a long time coming. Strzok had already had testimony behind closed doors, but this was aired LIVE for the whole world to take in and see.
You may remember Strzok from the emails and texts that he had with his FBI mistress, Lisa Page showing an extreme amount of bias in regards to investigations involving Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Strzok was a senior high ranking member of both investigations. The point of the hearings was to establish or determine whether bias clouded his judgment to the point that he actually mishandled his responsibilities in said investigations.
The hearing started off with the head of the Oversight & Government Reform Committee Chair, Trey Gowdy diving right in and creating fireworks with a very pointed exchange between the two. The whole thing went off the rails and Gowdy’s time was paused for a long while. You can see the whole exchange that started off a long day of exciting, interesting and definitely contentious politics. If you are a politics junkie, well, this is just as good as it gets. There were plenty of highlight reel moments at the hearing. I would just have to conclude that this was one of the best ones, even though there were exchanges that got a lot more aggressive. I am just partial to my main man in politics, Trey Gowdy, the pride of South Carolina.
