Strzok out

Televised congressional hearings are the political equivalent of a telethon without any money being raised for charity. The House hearing today with Peter Strzok, the disgraced FBI agent, was as partisan as one could expect, with Democrats propping up the man who tried to overturn the last presidential election.

Forget Russian collusion. This was worse: Deep State interference.

The newsers rallied round their anti-democratic hero.

The New York Times headlined its story: "F.B.I. Agent at Center of Russia Probe Turns Tables on G.O.P."

Politico headlined its story: "FBI agent Strzok defiant in face of Republican interrogation."

The Associated Press headlined its story: "FBI agent: My work has never been tainted by political bias."

And the headlines are all that matters. The Washington media exists only to keep the socialist base of the Democratic Party engaged.

But Melissa Quinn of the Washington Examiner tweeted the highlight of the day: "Holy moly, Louie Gohmert went there: 'I can’t help but wonder when I see you looking there with a little smirk how many times did you look so innocently into your wife’s eye and lied to her about Lisa Page.'"

And that, dear reader, is how you do it. The Republican congressman from ‏Texas just impeached Strzok. In the court of public opinion, the jury no longer has to believe a word that the witness said.

  1. I'd say so.

    I also think this is what Trump wants. You read all the Conservatives wanting an immediate indictment. I'd say Trump is just letting these people build the case for him.

    Don says Trump never fights a battle he can't win. I think the field is looking much more suitable for an engagement.

    Think November.

    1. And so you thought the same thing the night of the 2016 election...

    2. Exactly! My husband gets worked up over this and wants Trump to shut it down, and has wanted it shut down from the beginning. I keep reminding him of all the secrets which have been unearthed in the process. I tell my husband to trust Trump; his political timing is impeccable.

    3. Exactly it. This is introducing the swamp to the citizens who don't pay close attention and just read headlines.

    4. You guys are so right. Trump is so many steps ahead of these guys it is hysterical. (No chess/checkers analogies). Not bad for a guy with "no political experience". He has something much more important: Real Life. That's why the American people love him.

    1. You could tell that one hit the bullseye, just from the reaction of the Democrap mob there in the hearing. It was like stirring up an antsnest, they went crazy!

  3. You just know that they will trot out his wife to defend him. It will be reminiscent of when Bill Clinton trotted out his cabinet to defend him. And people like him are the ones we trust with our national security. As far as I am concerned, Louie Gohment did not go far enough; he should have said how the hell can you continue in a job of trust when you act in a trustworthy fashion with your own wife. You should be fired.

  4. If he was in the military, he could be court-martialed. Or so it used to be. Lord knows what they're up to in the armed forces now! -- BJ54

  5. Public torture and execution by strangling.

  6. You are correct. The Uniform Code of Military Justice cites adultery as a court-martial offense. Rarely, if ever applied, but it's in there.

  7. Perhaps his infidelity is why he failed his polygraph test and lost his security clearance. It has not been explained as far as I know, but he should have been shit-canned immediately. - Elric

    1. I believe he testified that he still has his clearance.

    2. I believe you are correct. Clearance was reduced but not taken away.

    3. I carried a Top Secret SI clearance for fifteen years. Had I done any of what he has done, I would have been immediately court martialed, and would probably still incarcerated. I no longer believe that we live in a country of equal justice.

  8. Louie Gohmert was a state district judge in Tyler, TX before running for Congress. He knows all about liars, criminals, and impeaching testimony of said scumbags.

  11. The question I want asked and answered by both Strzok and Page is given the zillions of emails they sent, when did they have time for hot sex? I think the only explanation is that they emailed each WHILE they were having sex. Peter to Lisa: "Oh baby, you're so hot, oh, oh, oh, OH, OH!" Lisa to Peter: Oh God, you're so big, don't stop, oh, oh, oh, OH, OH! No other possible explanation.

    1. Actually, it was when he texted comments like: "100,000,000 to 0", exclamation point!
      And the more important question is: when did they have time to do any work? Those 100,000+ text messages were on their work phones while they were on the clock. But Strzok also admitted yesterday before the committees that they also texted on their personal phoness. Yikes!

  12. You can tell the shot went home by how John Podhoretz and everyone else jumped on Gohmert for it.

  13. Between Strzok's snide, snarky expression in the photos and his condescending answers, I have never seen a more flagrant case of holding Congress in contempt.

    This slimy little WORM thinks he is above all.

    1. Many Americans hold Congress in contempt, and we have for a long time now. Just not in the same way.

    1. My thoughts exactly. The DEMS jump up & down about election interference... But "let's give Strzok a purple heart"???
