Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) on Saturday blasted embattled Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok following Strzok's hearing Thursday before the House. And remember, Bruce Ohr's wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS, who was paid by the Clinton campaign to put this entire dossier together.
The Justice Department's inspector general has criticized Strzok and Page for creating the appearance of impropriety. "But I do believe that he was being attacked because the FBI and the Mueller investigation were under attack". "I never think that that works well for a witness".
"I found Lisa Page to be far more credible than Strzok", Gaetz said. The 2008 Republican presidential candidate has repeatedly challenged Mueller's appointment and claimed no collusion took place between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, while personally attacking Mueller and any findings of his probe.
Strzok insisted under aggressive questioning that a much-discussed August 2016 text in which he said "we'll stop" a Trump presidency followed Trump's denigration of the family of a dead USA service member.
Her apparent consideration in answering lawmakers' questions served as contrast to the raucous testimony on Thursday of embattled Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok before the same congressional committees.
Peter Strzok, a veteran FBI counterintelligence official deeply involved in the Russian Federation investigation of Trump's campaign, insisted he was impartial despite his controversial August 2016 text exchange with ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was then having an affair.

Restaurant manager Jena's boyfriend Ryan Killian said afterwards: 'She is the most awesome person I have ever met. The vehicle sits in the driveway for about two minutes and then the driver turns the truck around.
Democrats said it was notable how much more subdued Friday's interview was compared with the charged environment during Thursday's public hearing with Strzok. Horowitz told lawmakers after the report's release that he is not confident that Strzok was unbiased during the FBI's investigation into Clinton's emails.
"I've talked to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents around the country".
Strzok and Page had worked on the FBI's Russian Federation investigation and on the early days of Mueller's special counsel team.
"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 said.
Gohmert ended his time with Strzok by babbling about Hillary Clinton again and trying to block the former agent from responding to his personal assaults.
On Thursday, Strzok testified publicly over a 10-hour span, during which Republicans and Democrats got into several shouting matches, including one particularly explosive moment after Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican, asked Strzok did he look into his "wife's eye and lie to her about Lisa Page". Gohmert's comment sparked vociferous objections from Democrats.
The reaction on social media was bipartisan in its criticism of Gohmert, who has been an avid supporter of Trump as president.
