    Republicans walked right into Peter Strzok's trap

    Oh, dearie me... Some light Friday night reading... (after about six obligatory grafs trashing the guy)
    ,

    The sad truth is that in the Republicans’ zeal to administer a public flogging of Strzok — and by extension the FBI — the GOP House members walked right into a trap.

    The hearing never had a chance of uncovering the truth. This is so because Strzok enjoyed the advantage of being able to shower the committees with self-serving protestations while hiding behind the restrictions on his testimony imposed by the FBI attorney hovering behind him.

    Strzok understood this and exploited his opportunity to the hilt while snuggling up to the anti-Trump Democrats embracing him.


    The savvy Strzok cleverly outmaneuvered the Republicans on the committees. That’s surprising, given the extensive experience of Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., as a former federal prosecutor. Gowdy should have known better than to take the bait.

    ,
    Surprising? Really? Gowdy steps on rakes all the time. His career as a prosecutor has no application here.

    Look at his results with the gavel, or an impromptu pundit. When all's said, is he truly respected by ... anybody?

    Yes? Where's he headed off to next year, then?

    Maybe he can get a job with Fox News?

    I suppose. The important thing to recognize for now is, when your friendly media has to write things like

    "The hearing never had a chance..."

    You know you got utterly destroyed. Few things are more pathetic in the political world than "Fiends! It's a trap!"

    BS It was total partisan. Both sides stood their ground, no minds were changed. Strzok claimed zero bias...you believed it.

    HA HA. And down in the dirt goes another leftist attempt to gain higher ground. Will they ever tell the truth ? I'd have to say though that I saw about 2 minutes of the Louie Gohmert part, and I don't see how you can describe it in any way other than Strzok got his ass handed to him. I can't imagine the other Republicans going much easier on this lowlife worm.

    Yeah, I guess that why many of GOP members on that committee did NOT take kindly to Gohmert's comments.

    And so odd that Strzok actually did some things that helped tip the election to Trump.

    But I guess the Dear Leader supporter's don't want to talk about "that".

    It is an opinion piece from an outsider. Former FBI in fact.

    About the author. Chris E. Swecker served 24 years in FBI as Special Agent. He retired from the Bureau as Assistant Director with responsibility over all FBI Criminal Investigations. He currently practices law in Charlotte, N.C.

    Disagree with this OP. Strozk came across as smug and arrogant. He did himself no favors and he certainly didn't "kick anyone's ass".

    That being said - the man has a right to his opinions. He was of course a poor choice to be involved in any investigation involving the President (as he's clearly bias with an axe to grind against Trump). But I"m far more interested in getting to the bottom of the FISA application that used opposition research from the Clinton campaign as a legal basis to spy on Americans. That to be me is a far more serious matter then this asshole's text messages about how Trump supporters are smelly hillbillies. He's actually the smelly dumbass - and stinks of arrogance and stupidity. I'm glad to see his career in the FBI winding down. Sooner he's gone the better because I'm so sick of so-called liberal elitists who think they are smarter and better than everyone else.

    Translation: How dare any FBI employee have a political opinion critical of messiah Trump, but having a critical one of the master criminal Hilliary during the #benghazi/#emailgate hearings is fine and the sign of a true ‘murican patriot.

    You are really terrible at translations. So in the future - do not attempt to translate any of my posts. Just make your comments independently without dishonestly attempting to portray what I said in the process. Because I can speak for myself - and certainly don't need you trying to translate my words for me - especially given how terrible you are at.
