Strzok: Anti-Trump Text Based On His 'Horrible, Disgusting' Treatment Of Gold Star Family

Source: Talking Points Memo



By Tierney Sneed | July 12, 2018 11:47 am

At a congressional hearing Thursday, FBI agent Peter Strzok defended himself from attacks from GOP lawmakers that a text he sent in 2016 — in which he said that “we’ll stop” then candidate-Donald Trump — proved he was biased in the Russia investigation into Trump’s campaign.

“In terms of the texts that ‘we will stop it,’ you need to understand that that was written late at night, off-the-cuff and it was in response to a series of events that included then-candidate Trump insulting the immigrant family of a fallen war hero and my presumption, based on that horrible, disgusting behavior, that the American population would not elect someone demonstrating that behavior to be president of the United States,” Strzok said.

“It was in no way unequivocally any suggestion that me, the FBI, would take any action whatsoever to improperly impact the electoral process for any candidate,” Strzok continued, adding that he took “great offense” with Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy’s assertions about the texts.

2. It won't be long before we see DU posts promoting Strzok for president

Maybe it's already happened, and I missed it.

6. It's true that almost anyone would be an improvement

Over the pustulent pig pseudo president, but some DUers seem awfully ready to jump on whatever bandwagon rolls by.

4. That was... how many outrages ago?

He has been so awful for so long that I forgot that he did that as a candidate, and it was terrible at the time!

5. A five-time republican draft dodger dissing a Gold Star family is still damn low

not one republican stood up for our fallen soldier, or his family.

That's why republicans are known as the deplorables.

10. After Rachel's Strzok history last night, knew he was going to flatten this GOPPutin Fluffer Fiesta

I sure hope Strzok's quote on Trump's disgusting attack on a Gold Star Father is the one that is front and center on all MSM nightly
national & local news tonight.

12. until this past 24 hours

I thought Strzok was just some FBI agent that had cheated on his wife with another agent.

didn't realize he was THE head of counter-espionage at the FBI and had a ton of experience dealing with Russian spies.
