FBI agent clashes with GOP at hearing on Russia probe

Peter Strzok the FBI agent facing criticism following a series of anti Trump text messages walks to gives a deposition before the House Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington. Strzok whose anti-Trump

After text messages surfaced wherein the agent told FBI attorney Lisa Page "we'll stop" President Donald Trump's election, Special Counsel Robert Mueller reassigned Strzok from the Russian Federation investigation to the bureau's HR department.

On Thursday, Strzok had his day in the hot seat before the House judiciary and oversight committees ― whom Kimmel called "bozos in the House" and a "collection of clowns". "I think not", Goodlatte said.

After defying a congressional subpoena Wednesday, Page has agreed to meet with congressmen in closed-door sessions Friday and again on Monday.

USA ambassador leaves door open to Trump meeting with Johnson
May was asked by an opposition lawmaker Monday whether she would contest a vote of confidence if one came rather than resign. He said he was anxious the government's negotiating approach would "lead to further demands for concessions" from Brussels.


To which Texas representative Ted Poe responded: 'And I don't believe you'.

In one text, Strzok said "we'll stop" Trump in the midst of the 2016 presidential election. So, I take great offence, and I take great disagreement, to your assertion of what that was or wasn't'.

Plus, he said, both the Clinton and Russian Federation investigations were handled by large teams that "would not tolerate any improper behavior in me anymore than I would tolerate it in them. 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 Federal Bureau of Investigation". "It simply couldn't happen".

Former Pakistan PM, Nawaz Sharif, reaches Abu Dhabi, urges followers for support
According to media reports , dozens of security officials entered the plane after it landed and asked other passengers to leave. Mr Sharif has been sentenced to 10 years while his daughter Maryam was given seven years after corruption charges.


In an exchange with Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of SC, chair of the House Oversight Committee, Strzok defended his "we'll stop" Trump text.

Democratic representative Steve Cohen of Tennessee said he would give Strzok a Purple Heart if he could. Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, D-New Jersey, said, "I have never seen my colleagues so out of control, so angry". Guiliani saying that "all the results of the investigation" should "be dismissed" seems to imply that he believes that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's charges against the 13 Russian nationals who are accused of interfering in the 2016 election, should also be dismissed. Last year, he was reassigned from Mueller's team after the compromising texts emerged.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), referring to Strzok's affair with Page and his denial of any bias, told the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, "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".

Real Madrid prepare £150 million for Hazard
However, while all may appear well for Chelsea , Terreur does state that things with Real Madrid could alter quickly. Daily Mail reports that Real Madrid have prepared a £150m offer which they will table in the coming weeks.


The comments sparked immediate objections from Democrats, who called them outrageous, and Strzok was livid. Gohmert tried to shout over him and the committee chairman vainly tried to restore order. But, he said, "the thought of exposing that information never crossed my mind". Strzok's lawyer said he was escorted from the Federal Bureau of Investigation building last month as the disciplinary process proceeds.
