Goodlatte Says FBI's Peter Strzok Will Be Recalled For Contempt - Katie Pavlich

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) reminded Strzok that it took him one day after Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel into the investigation of President Trump's campaign and Russian officials before the FBI agent talked about impeachment proceedings. Last year, he was reassigned from Mueller's team after the compromising texts emerged. Strzok, unlike Page, remains employed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"There were times when Federal Bureau of Investigation counsel instructed Lisa Page not to provide answers, but she was more forthcoming than Peter Strzok", said GOP Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida. He said the text, written late at night and off-the-cuff, reflected his belief that the American public would not stomach such "horrible, disgusting behavior" by the Republican presidential candidate. "In the summer of 2016, I was one of a handful of people who knew the details of Russian election interference and its possible connections with members of the Trump campaign", Strzok said.

"President Trump should absolutely cancel this meeting with Putin", Mr. Perez said. Virginia GOP Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the House Judiciary Committee chairman, said the rule only applies to members of Congress and the President.

If Mueller concludes his investigation by saying that Trump did nothing wrong, the same Republicans trying to discredit him now will instantly forget about Strzok and Page and all of the other conspiracy theories they've cooked up, and will embrace Mueller's investigation as total vindication.

This is Strzok responding to Republican lawmakers questioning him about one of the messages. With all its yelling and interruptions, the hearing was a fitting coda to the hyperpartisan farce of an investigation that House Republicans have conducted into the FBI and Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

At one point, Strzok said he didn't appreciate an assertion from Gowdy, who retorted, "I don't give a damn what you appreciate".

Kylie Jenner makes Forbes list of 'self-made' billionaires
Thanks to this minuscule overhead and marketing costs, Forbes writes, the profits are outsize and go directly to Jenner. In comparison, her 37-year-old sister Kim Kardashian's estimated worth is about a third of that, at $ 350 million .

Mr Strzok has been widely criticized for a text exchange he had during the electoral campaign with an Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer, who asked him if Mr Trump would be president, to which the agent responded: "No, he " s not.

"They would not tolerate any improper behavior in me anymore than I would tolerate it in them", Strzok said.

Democrats pounced on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's indictment of a dozen Russian military officers for their efforts to interfere in the 2016 USA election, with some saying Monday's Donald Trump-Vladimir Putin summit should be canceled.

Hence the travesty of the Strzok hearing today, and why his righteous indignation was both appreciated and appropriate. Democrats objected to Goodlatte's repeated attempts to get Strzok to answer. He said the FBI's Trump investigation originated not out of personal animus but rather from concern that Russia was seeking to meddle in the election, including what he said were credible allegations of a Russian offer of assistance to a Trump campaign associate.

"This is about promoting a narrative, you're a prop", said Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I.

"It felt like a public lynching", Dana Perino, a Fox News Host and a former White House press secretary under President George W Bush, said of the Republicans' interrogation of Strzok.
