Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert Calls-Out Peter Strzok, Sends Dems Over The Edge
It began with Gohmert saying this:
“You’d be better off coming in here and saying ‘Look, that was my bias’ — and you kind of get around it a little bit when you say, ‘Hey, you know, everybody’s got political views.’ Those are called biases, and we all have them — and you have come in here and said, ‘I had no bias’, and you do it with a straight face. I watched you in the private testimony you gave, and I told the other guys — he’s really good. He’s lying. He knows we know he’s lying and he could probably pass a polygraph.”
Not surprisingly, Democrats immediately called on Gohmert to withdraw his comments. He didn’t. In fact, not only did he not take back what he said, he went even further and sent Democrats into a tailspin. Over the objections, Chairman Goodlatte ruled Gohmert could continue. And boy, did he.
“I’ve talked to FBI agents around the country,” said the Texas rep. “You’ve embarrassed them, you’ve embarrassed yourself, and I can’t help but wonder when I see you looking there with your little smirk how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page.”
Before Gohmert even finished, Democrats were losing their minds. “This is intolerable harassment of a witness!” shouted one. Another voice, a female, can be heard telling Gohmert “You need your medication!” Of course, the best response came from ranking House Democrat Jerry Nadler.
He accused his colleague of “impugning” Strzok’s character.
Um, sorry Jerry. We’re pretty sure by cheating on his wife and plotting to oust a duly elected presidential-candidate, Strzok impugned his own character. That is, if he ever had any in the first place.
