FBI agent Peter Strzok say political bias did not impact investigations

"Credibility of a witness is always an issue", Gohmert retorted over the commotion. "This was not about getting answers from Strzok".
"It's a closed-door hearing", said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a TexasDemocrat, saying Thursday's had been about "scoring points".
"Lisa Page has finally agreed to appear before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees for a transcribed interview tomorrow", Goodlatte said in a statement.
Strzok helped lead two of the FBI'smost high-profile investigations: inquiries into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
Rep. Gohmert went after FBI agent Peter Strzok for cheating on his wife throughout the investigations into Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
"He thinks promising to stop someone he is supposed to be fairly investigating from ever becoming president isn't bias", Gowdy said. We " ll stop it".
Several Democrats gasped, shouting at Gohmert, "That is outrageous!" and "Shame on you!".
Strzok angrily responded, saying the "we'll stop it" text came in response to campaign occurrences such as Trump insulting the immigrant father of a fallen USA soldier.
"It's just an outrage that people in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the FBI that I spent most of my adult life and loved what we did for the American people, you know, can promote somebody with all these character flaws to such a high position", he said. 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. He said it was not a declaration that he or the Federal Bureau of Investigation would improperly interfere with the electoral process.
"They would not tolerate any improper behavior in me anymore than I would tolerate it in them", Strzok said. "It simply couldn't happen". "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 Federal Bureau of Investigation". He described the texts as "hate filled and biased".
Kallstrom said Strzok is a lot like Comey because the two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents are driven by egotistic and narcissistic behaviors that are detrimental to the agency.
"It wasn't the discovery of your texts, Mr. Strzok".
"Let me be clear, unequivocally and under oath: not once in my 26 years of defending my nation did my personal opinions impact any official action I took", he is expected to say. "But", he said, "the thought of exposing that information never crossed my mind". Strzok was pulled off the Mueller investigation past year after the Justice Department's internal watchdog made the special prosecutor aware of the texts.
Giuliani reiterated the president's nickname for special counsel Robert Mueller's probe-"witch hunt"-and claimed the probe should be wrapped up as soon as possible".
"I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there's no big there there", Strzok said in the text.
The Justice Department's inspector general has criticized Strzok and Page for creating the appearance of impropriety through the texts. Strzok helped lead the FBI's early investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race and Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.
Republicans, on the other hand, peppered Strzok with questions and expressed outrage that's been building for months.
