Seriously, what did they hope to discover with this SHIT SHOW?

Did they really expect that Peter Strzok would just say "hey, I admit it... this Russia investigation is a witch hunt and I started it for no other reason but that Donald Trump is a Republican!" ???

1. A few soundbytes to show on Trump TV

And video clips to how their base. Probably worked if edited enough to eliminate all facts

2. Kabuki theater, pure and simple...

It's the kind of thing where everybody knows the outcome, but they still come to see.

3. They are taking a sledgehammer to every institution

until they are so weakened and disgraced that a true one-party dictatorship can seize power. That's their goal.

7. But even with that, almost every one of them professed their respect for the FBI.

LOL.

All theater for the Fox crowd, IMV.

4. The hoped to be seen catapulting the propaganda.

Filling time with words that delegitimize the FBI and Mueller. Fox will show them doing so, the President will get tweet fodder.

Mission Accomplished.

5. No, of course not

They were just using the trappings of the U.S. Govt for purely partisan political purposes. Corruption reigns supreme.

6. None of the GOP questions were about Russia

It was all about his supposed bias against Drumpf and "her emails".

11. And it went like this:

GOP: "You were biased."
Strzok: "No, I wasn't."
GOP: "You were fired for being biased."
Strzok: "No, I wasn't."
GOP: "You're lying. I know that you're a liar because you cheated on your wife."
Dems: "Goober needs to go take his meds."

I gotta admit... it was highly entertaining.

12. They didn't have to make him say that. They only had to

make it so their constituents believed it. This was about the GOP giving their base a reason to come out in November. And they will only be judged by how much damage they can inflict upon anything that is the antithesis to their bigoted nihilism.
