Republicans praise Page's testimony one day after battle with Strzok

FBI agent Peter Strzok arrives for a closed-door hearing on June 27 before the House Judiciary Committee

FBI agent Peter Strzok arrives for a closed-door hearing on June 27 before the House Judiciary Committee

Page worked on the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation, and her anti-Trump text messages with Peter Strzok fueled several investigations into whether the DOJ and FBI showed bias during the Russian Federation probe and the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server.

Mr Strzok has been widely criticized for a text exchange he had during the electoral campaign with an Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer, who asked him if Mr Trump would be president, to which the agent responded: "No, he " s not.

"At no time in any of these texts did those personal beliefs enter into the realm of any action I took", Strzok testified. Chief among those skeptics was Rep. Louie Gohmert, the controversial Texas firebrand, who accused Strzok of lying to lawmakers.

Rhode Island Democrat David Cicilline asked Gohmert to withdraw his remarks.

"That's a disgrace", Cicilline said. "As soon as you bring cameras into this situation you have all of this grandstanding". "And I've talked to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents around the country".

"I found Lisa Page to be far more credible than Strzok", Gaetz said.

The room erupted into cries of anger and disbelief.

"Credibility of a witness is always an issue", Gohmert retorted over the commotion. "Mr. Chairman, Mr. Chairman, please", one said.

Launch pad dating back to early days of space program demolished
The two towers at Canaveral's Space Launch Complex 17 were demolished via controlled explosions at 7 a.m. Officials said there have been more than 100 launches throughout several decades.

At one point, Trey Gowdy, chairman of the oversight committee, grew frustrated with Strzok's answers and shouted: "I don't give a damn what you appreciate Agent Strzok".

Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom told FOX Business that the "lies" perpetrated by FBI agent Peter Strzok are consistent with the lack of leadership exemplified by the agency's former director, James Comey.

Despite the president facing about a dozen allegations of sexual harassment - many of them allegedly occurring while Trump was in one of his three marriages - social conservatives in Congress have failed to take him to task at anywhere close to the level that Gohmert did Strzok.

"So it sounds like when you were writing these emails in the heat of the campaign, you had a lot of company on the Republican side of the aisle", Connolly told Strzok. "I clearly wasn't smelling one thing or the other", Strzok responded.

"The fact you would accuse me otherwise, the fact you would question whether or not that was the sort of look I would engage in with a family member who I have acknowledged hurting, goes more to a discussion about your character and what you stand for and what's going inside you", he said, before being interrupted.

Several Democrats gasped, shouting at Gohmert, "That is outrageous!" and "Shame on you!"

"You lost your credibility, that's the problem", he repeated.
