I’ve never been a particular fan of Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX). He is way too far to my right, especially on social issues.
But today, after listening to him tell that smug, smirking lying bastard peter strzok off to his face – as Democrats had apoplexies over his doing so, he is my hero.
Thank you, sir. It’s about effing time someone did that. The country, and every honest FBI agent out there (which, I firmly believe, is the vast majority of them) owe you a debt of gratitude.
When I get the transcript I’ll be sure to post it.
UPDATE: Here is exactly what Gohmert said, courtesy of Amber Athey’s blog at dailycaller.com:
“You do it with a straight face and I watched you in the private testimony you gave and I told some of the other guys, ‘he is really good, he’s lying, he know, we know he’s lying and he can probably pass the polygraph,’” Gohmert alleged during the hearing.
Democratic Rep. David Cicilline interrupted angrily to criticize Gohmert for his accusations of lying.
“A member of this committee just asserted that this witness, who is under oath and a former agent of the FBI, lied. There is no evidence … I ask him to withdraw it,” Cicilline complained. “It is a disgrace.”
Gohmert became enraged by Cicilline’s interruption and delivered a tough blow to Strzok for his infidelity and bias.
“The disgrace is what this man has done to our justice system!” Gohmert declared. “It won’t be recaptured any time soon because of the damages that you have done to the justices and I have talked to FBI around the country, you have embarrassed them, you have embarrassed yourself and I can’t help but wonder when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page?”
At this point the room erupted, with Democrats expressing hefty overdoses of furious outrage.
I agree with their attitude, if not their superheated reaction to, the comment relating to strzok and his wife. It was unnecessary, out of place – and could just as easily be used against President Trump.
But I wish this farcical witchhunt, and the fact that these two amoral, lying scumbags, peter strzok and lisa page, are instrumental in creating it, outraged them one 1,000th as much.
Obviously it does not.
