Deep state officials within our own government have made it their goal to destroy President Donald Trump.
But now Republicans are fighting back, forcing them to lose much of their power.
And all hell broke loose after a Republican exposed a deep state agent right to his face.
Last Thursday was a bad day for the anti-Trump deep state. As former FBI agent Peter Strzok was on the stand in front of Congress, his entire reputation was torn to shreds.
He was exposed as a corrupt government official who held a high-level position in the FBI, where he helped lead an investigation into President Trump while holding anti-Trump views.
His now-famous anti-Trump diatribes sent over text message to his extra-marital lover and fellow FBI agent Lisa Page resulted in his firing from his leading role in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia collusion during the 2016 election.
But his firing was too late, as Strzok was also involved in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, at a time when he was sending anti-Trump text messages.
These were all points brought up by Republican members of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees. They pointed out a solid case proving Strzok’s corruption and the effect it has on the American people’s trust for the entire Justice Department.
But of all the moments of the hearing, there was no moment that got as fiery as when Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert grilled Strzok. Gohmert accused Strzok of being a liar, which immediately received backlash from Democrats on the committee.
Democrat Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island cut off Gohmert, demanding he withdraw his claim, which Gohmert refused.
Not only did Gohmert refuse to give in under criticism, he doubled down. After asserting that Strzok was a disgrace, and did major damage to the justice system, Gohmert centered on the affair that Strzok engaged in with fellow FBI agent Lisa Page.
Gohmert asked Strzok, “How many times did you look so innocently into your wife’s eye and lie to her about Lisa Page?”
That statement caused an uproar of anger and disbelief, with Democrats calling the statement “outrageous.” Gohmert stood by his statement, asserting that the credibility of a witness is always an issue.
While mentioning the affair was a controversial thing to do, it truly is a relevant piece of information in relation to the claim initially made.
Gohmert asserted that Strzok is a liar, and the fact that he almost certainly hid his relationship from his wife proves that he is no stranger to not telling the truth, or is at least willing to hide things from people.
Strzok’s affair has been a major talking point for his critics. Even President Donald Trump brought it up during a recent rally.
While the affair itself is not directly related to the wrongful things the FBI agent did, it is a relevant gauge of character. And in the case of Gohmert, played very well into a criticism he was making.
Do you think Gohmert was in line when he mentioned Strzok’s affair?
