Peter Strzok appeared before the House Judiciary Committee yesterday, and the Republicans were so clearly out to smear this guy and undercut his credibility — to protect the Orange Traitor. Unbelievable.
FBI Agent Peter Strzok applauded by Democratic members of House Oversight Committee after passionate response to Rep. Trey Gowdy, saying Gowdy's accusation "deeply corrodes what the FBI is in American society, the effectiveness of their mission, and it is deeply destructive." pic.twitter.com/m2Hbc9kPPQ

"The suggestion that I, in some dark chamber somewhere in the FBI, would somehow cast aside all of these procedures, all of these safe guards, and somehow be able to do this is astounding me. It simply couldn’t happen. ”

GOP questioners of Strzok seem committed to ignoring that everyone, including agents & prosecutors, has personal political beliefs. That’s ok. Agents & prosecutors don’t let beliefs interfere with their work. Both internal procedures & the IG Report confirm it didn’t happen here.

If Peter Strzok wanted to stop Donald Trump from being elected president why didn’t he leak the fact that Trump was under investigation for colluding with Russia before he was elected president

Strozk won the day.

Peter Strzok: "I strongly believe today's hearing is just another victory notch in Putin's belt."
Couldn’t agree more Mr. Strozk!!
The GOP and Trump has made our government look like a farce.
And it’s definitely troubling. We need to vote out these spineless republicans.

Gutierrez leads Strzok to a key point: IF THE FBI REALLY HAD IT OUT FOR TRUMP, THEY WOULD HAVE LEAKED ABOUT THE INVESTIGATION OF TRUMP BEFORE THE ELECTION.

This hearing would make more sense if Mueller had not removed Strzok from the Russia investigation a year ago.

Congressional Republicans are embarrassing themselves and diminishing their offices through their conduct in this hearing. There are legitimate questions to ask Strzok, but their over the top approach undermines that inquiry and distracts from legitimate questions. https://t.co/Rpzl8hCAVe
