Political observers were far from impressed today when the House Judiciary Committee plunged into total madness during their hearing with Peter Strzok. "If you want to represent what you said accurately, I'm happy to answer that question, but I don't appreciate what was originally said being changed". "Are you objecting to the question?" Unsurprisingly, the hearing quickly devolved into a circus, with members yelling at each other, overlapping points of order, and a general sense of chaos.
Strzok also worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
Gowdy pressed Strzok on the texts during the back-and-forth, at one point telling the FBI agent that it's "no wonder Bob Mueller kicked you off the investigation".
Strzok argued that Mueller did not remove him from his team because of bias, but because of the perception the texts created.
"Congressman, as you know, counsel for the FBI, based on the special counsel's equities, has instructed me not to answer questions about the ongoing investigation into Russian attempts to interfere".
Strzok said in the hearing, convened by two Republican-controlled House of Representatives committees: "Today's hearing is just another victory notch in (Russian President Vladimir) Putin's belt and another milestone in our enemies' campaign to tear America apart".
Strzok called it "horrible and disgusting behaviour", and said he was stating his opinion the electorate would "stop" a candidate like that. "What I can tell you is that text in no way suggested that I or the Federal Bureau of Investigation would take any action to influence the candidacy". It simply couldn't happen. "Together with her lover, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, she worked on the Rigged Witch Hunt, perhaps the most tainted and corrupt case EVER!" He described the texts as "hate filled and biased".
Mueller reassigned Strzok after the Justice Department discovered highly political text messages that he sent Page during the 2016 election cycle.
"Let me be clear, unequivocally and under oath: not once in my 26 years of defending my nation did my personal opinions impact any official action I took", he is expected to say.

In one, Page asked Strzok if Trump was going to be president. But the thought of exposing that information never crossed my mind.
Republicans have cited Page's and Strzok's messages as evidence about what they call bias inside federal law enforcement and that conspirators launched the Russian Federation investigation out of partisan animus. "We'll stop it", Mr. Strzok replied.
"I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there's no big there there", Strzok said in the text.
"This investigation is not politically motivated", Strzok said.
The contentious hearing follows hours of closed-door questioning last week.
