Peter Strzok hearing revealed one thing - Washington's partisan dysfunction

In an interview after his explosive performance questioning Peter Strzok Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) made astounding claims against former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Fox News.

The official took part in the investigation regarding Hillary Clinton " s use of a private email server for official communications during her tenure as US Secretary of State and was involved in the Russian Federation probe, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, although he was taken off the case after his text exchange was revealed.

"These were his words, [when] he sat in front of us for eight hours, nine hours and denied there was any bias".

Strzok was removed from that role after anti-Trump text messages between Strzok and an Federal Bureau of Investigation attorney - Lisa Page, the woman with whom he was having an affair - were published.

"I don't appreciate being mischaracterized", Mr. Strzok said. In one exchange, Strozk vowed to "stop" Trump.

'US to become global leading producer of crude oil'
Venezuela's production has collapsed due to a lack of investment and Iranian exports have suffered due to USA sanctions. Yesterday, we wrote that a strike in a Shell-operated oil field in Norway helped drive Brent crude oil prices higher.

Reading several of Strzok's text messages back to him, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) accused Strzok of having an "unusual and largely self-serving" definition of bias. Both Strzok and Page were booted from Mueller's investigation past year after he discovered their texts.

Gohmert said impassionedly as Democrats on the committee yelled, "Mister Chairman, this is outrageous!" and a female member yelled, "You need your medication". "No he won't. We'll stop it".

Other Democrats shouted Gohmert down themselves, crying out "Shame on you, Mr. Gohmert!" and "Insane asylum!" This is nothing but a ruse to try to get to the Mueller investigation and make people think it's baseless, that it's biased. Strzok has since been reassigned within the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He also briefly served on special counsel Robert Mueller's team, investigating Trump's ties to Russian Federation. Peter Strzok oversaw the opening of the investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 election. He said it was not a declaration that he or the Federal Bureau of Investigation would improperly interfere with the electoral process.

The hearing lasted five hours and may resume on Monday.

"He [Strzok] was told by the intelligence community inspector general's investigator Frank Rutger that they had found an anomaly in the emails going to and from Hillary Clinton's unauthorized private server", Gohmert explained. Strzok's lawyer has said he was escorted from the Federal Bureau of Investigation building as the disciplinary process winds its way through the system.
