VIDEO: Gowdy tears into Strzok: ‘I don’t give a damn what you appreciate’

Published

on

Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy tore into FBI agent Peter Strzok in splendid fashion yesterday. It was one of the highlights of a grueling 12-hour testimony by the smirking Strzok who headed both the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Russian collusion investigation. He seemed to have no trouble whatsoever arrogantly lying over a prolonged period, but Gowdy does not suffer corrupt fools well and went after him. Strzok was testifying in front of the House oversight and judiciary committees. Gowdy accused Strzok of “textbook bias” with his anti-Trump texts. That’s one way of putting it… I had a much more colorful way of saying it yesterday that I won’t repeat here.

Gowdy and Strzok hotly went after it yesterday. They faced off and Gowdy of course was the winner in the match. It wasn’t even a contest… Gowdy blew Strzok away with razor sharp truth. Strzok claimed he was removed from the Russia probe over an “appearance” issue and not because of “bias.” He then said he didn’t appreciate Gowdy saying otherwise. “I don’t give a damn what you appreciate, Agent Strzok,” Gowdy shot back. “I don’t appreciate having an FBI agent with an unprecedented level of animus working on two major investigations in 2016.” Slow clap… that’s exactly what Strzok deserved there.

Gowdy earlier pointed out that Strzok had former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “winning the White House” before he finished her investigation and, likewise, he had President Trump “impeached” before he began working on the probe of his campaign ties to Russia. Gowdy was citing derogatory and inflammatory comments Strzok made in text messages while working on the investigations. “Agent Strzok had Hillary Clinton winning the White House before he finished investigating her,” Gowdy stated. “Agent Strzok had Donald Trump impeached before he even started investigating him. That is bias. Agent Strzok may not see it but the rest of the country does, and it is not what we want, expect or deserve from any law enforcement officer much less the FBI.”

Gowdy savaged Strzok over what his text messages entailed, as well has his hateful bias against President Trump. He laser focused on why Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling into the 2016 election. Strzok lied like a trooper and grinned while doing it. The Democrats applauded him… one of them said he deserved a Purple Heart for his testimony. That is a horrible insult to all those who have served and sacrificed in our military that actually earned a Purple Heart.

This was Strzok’s first time testifying on Capitol Hill since the release of a Justice Department inspector general report that heavily criticized his comments. He claims he has no bias and that his personal opinions did not taint his work. No one believes that. His lover, Lisa Page, is set to testify today behind closed doors now that she has heard what Strzok had to say.

From Fox News:

“Strzok says an infamous text message saying “we’ll stop” the election of Donald Trump was written in response to a series of events including Trump’s “disgusting” insult of the family of a fallen American soldier. Strzok appeared to refer to derogatory statements Trump made about the family of U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who was killed in Iraq in 2004.

“Following Gowdy’s questioning, Strzok responded strongly saying that he takes “great disagreement” to the allegations brought against him by the South Carolina legislator and that Strzok’s text messages represented his personal feelings and did not affect his work at the FBI.

““At no time, in any of these texts, did those personal beliefs ever enter into the realm of any action I took,” Strzok said. “And the suggestion that I, in some dark chamber in the FBI, would somehow cast aside all of these procedures, all of these safeguards, and somehow be able to do this is astounding to me.”

“Strzok added: “The proposition that that is going on or that it might occur in the FBI deeply corrodes what the FBI is in American society, the effectiveness of their mission and it is deeply destructive.””

The floor turned chaotic during Gowdy’s questioning yesterday with Democrats shouting over him and making a scene. They did that as well to Louie Gohmert, who said at one point, “The disgrace is what this man has done to our justice system!” Gohmert stated. “It won’t be recaptured any time soon because of the damages that you have done to the justices and I have talked to FBI around the country, you have embarrassed them, you have embarrassed yourself and I can’t help but wonder when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page?” Democrats erupted in the chamber shouting “shame” and “harassment.” One female Democratic member on the judiciary committee yelled into her microphone at Gohmert during the rant: “You need your medication.”

Jim Jordan also got into it with Strzok over his sources and lying, as did other Republicans who grilled the FBI agent. Republicans demanded answers and Democrats obstructed as did Strzok himself. At one point, it looked like Strzok would be held in contempt for not answering questions put to him. Sadly, that did not happen. There was yelling and insults were lobbed during the whole disgraceful sham of a hearing. Strzok refused to answer GOP questions about the early stages of the FBI investigation into Russian intervention because the probe is still ongoing and he said FBI counsel had instructed him not to.

There was no justice to be found yesterday. Only horrid, disrespectful and disgraceful grandstanding by Democrats. Jeff Sessions needs to do his job here and appoint a special counsel to investigate all of this. Not only does Gowdy not give a damn about what Strzok thinks, neither does America. We just want justice here and we are now demanding it.

Major Staff Upheaval Underway NOW At White House – Trump’s Had It!

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Reuters

Another round of upheaval engulfed President Donald Trump’s White House on Tuesday, with the future of several senior aides in doubt just a week after U.S. congressional elections.

Three Trump cabinet members – Chief of Staff John Kelly, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke – could soon be gone, said sources familiar with internal discussions in the Republican administration.

Turnover among White House personnel paused during the run-up to last week’s elections after senior Republicans asked Trump to refrain from firing staff, hoping to minimize perceptions of disorder.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced out by Trump last week just hours after the results came in from the Nov. 6 elections, which handed majority control of the House of Representatives to Democrats.

Trump’s first 22 months in office have seen frequent shakeups. A study this year by the Brookings Institution, a think tank, found Trump’s White House has had the highest turnover of senior-level staff of the past five presidents.

In an unusual move, sources said, Trump was also ready to dismiss Mira Ricardel, deputy national security advisor, at the request of his wife, Melania Trump, after a clash between the two over the first lady’s recent trip to Africa.

Melania Trump’s office acknowledged the acrimony.

Trump was expected to remove Nielsen, a source close to the White House said. Nielsen took the job after Trump made Kelly his chief of staff. But now the president is considering getting rid of both them, the source said.

Zinke has been under investigation for several ethics controversies including travel and a business deal in his home state of Montana, casting doubt on how long he would remain at the helm of the agency.

A final decision on his future could be postponed beyond this week. He is scheduled to travel to California on Wednesday and Thursday to visit communities hit by deadly wildfires, the Interior Department said on Tuesday.

Trump last week said Zinke was doing an “excellent job” but left open the possibility of replacing him. “We’re looking at that, and I do want to study whatever is being said,” Trump told reporters last week.

Adding to the sense of upheaval at the White House, Special Counsel Robert Mueller was planning to file more indictments in his 18-month investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign, sources said.

Florida Dems Blindsided By Attorney General – She Demands Criminal Investigation

Published

on

In an effort that promises to go on at least until December to recount votes in Florida’s races for U.S. Senate, governor, and the state agriculture commissioner. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has now called for criminal investigations into ”irregularities” in the vote counting and the handling of ballots in two South Florida counties by Broward County’s Brenda Snipes who as is being reported now also was lucky enough to “find ballots” in 2012.

Here is more via Breitbart:

“Broward County, Florida election official Brenda Snipes — who is continuing to find new ballots in the recent statewide midterm elections for Governor and the U.S. Senate — was previously accused of finding ballots after an election in 2012.

Government Accountability Insititute (GAI) research director Eric Eggers exclusively told SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight‘s Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour that Snipes allegedly “found ballots” following an election in 2012.

Eggers said:

She’s also been accused of illegally opening ballots. The Florida GOP sued her for this and when they brought her to court, they said ‘Hey, your office is opening ballots outside the presence of the canvassing board … what’s your explanation?’ And again, the woman in charge of elections in Florida’s second most populous county argued she thought it was okay because her office didn’t understand the meaning of the word ‘canvassing.’ [Emphasis added]

This is also not the first time that her office has just found ballots. There was actually a canvassing official back in 2012 that complained that heading into a weekend, they were told there were about 150 votes left to be counted and then Monday morning, well actually there are about 950 votes still to go. [Emphasis added]

Eggers said there is “clearly an organized effort to manipulate and alter outcomes,” noting that in Miami-Dade County, about 108 provisional ballots were eliminated in the midterm election because they were from individuals who had voted twice.

In a recent piece for Breitbart News, Eggers reviewed Snipes’ history of allowing illegal aliens and felons to vote in elections in Broward County, along with her destroying of ballots.”

And here is even more on Snipes via Breitbart:

“On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Evening Edit,” Florida Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera (R) stated that nothing will be ruled out as a potential consequence for Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes (D) for her handling of the 2018 elections.

Lopez-Cantera said, “I’ll tell you going forward, nothing is going to be ruled out, as far as consequences for these horrible, horrible elections that she’s done here in Broward this year. Leading into the election, there were no indications, for the 2018 general election that there were going to be any problems. But, you know, she has shown herself to be clearly incompetent, and like I said, nothing will be taken off the table going forward.”

As of Tuesday Bondi had sent two separate letters to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Rick Swearingen and Secretary of State Ken Detzner where she expressed concern about FDLE’s comments Friday that it is working with Detzner’s office and will investigate reports of cases of voter fraud but had not received any reports as of Friday.

In a statement FDLE said an investigation had not been opened at this time.

“I am deeply troubled by your announcement that you will not pursue any investigation or inquiry into clearly documented irregularities of election officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties,” Bondi wrote Swearingen.
