Congressman Louie Gohmert clearly had enough of Peter Strzok. He was just angry enough to tell the truth:
“I watched you in the private testimony you gave. And I told some of the other guys, he is really good. He’s lying, he knows we know he is lying, and he could probably pass a polygraph. You’ve 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 eye and lie to her about Lisa Page.”
Democrats went ballistic. One congress woman even yelled that Gohmert needed his medication. What Gohmert said was rude and insulting. It was badgering a witness. But it was also a spot-on analysis of Mr. Strzok and the response by Mr. Strzok proved that point:
“I assure you, under oath, as I spoke also during my interview a week or two ago, I have always told the truth. The fact that you would accuse me otherwise, the fact that you would question whether or not that was the sort of look I engage in with a family member who I have acknowledged hurting, goes more to discussion about your character and what you stand for and what is going inside of you.”
Liberals and the MSM probably think Strzok won that exchange. Peter Strzok absolutely believes he won that exchange. But the reality is that this was probably the most devastating part of the hearing for him for a couple of reasons.Gohmert had the courage to say what a lot of us were thinking. The other is that this was on live TV and a picture is worth a thousand words. Mr. Strzok cannot get that arrogant smirk off his face. At times he almost looked demonic. I personally though he had a remarkable resemblance to “Chucky.”
This was made even worse by the ghoulish FBI attorneys sitting behind him.
Right now, Peter Strzok is the face of the FBI and sometimes it is all about face.
