An embattled Federal Bureau of Investigation agent whose anti-Trump text messages exposed the Justice Department to claims of institutional bias vigorously defended himself at an extraordinary congressional hearing that devolved into shouting matches, finger-pointing and veiled references to personal transgressions. "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?"
Giuliani's words followed those of other Republicans who attempted to seize on Strzok's texts with Page and his testimony as evidence of political bias toward Trump and his campaign, and as proof that the entire Mueller probe was propped up by a "deep state" intent on thwarting Trump's administration. "No, he's not. We'll stop it".
Rosiak further reported that Gohmert said the ICIG investigator, Frank Rucker, presented the findings to Strzok, but that the Federal Bureau of Investigation official did not do anything with the information.

Strzok replied, "No, Mr. Gowdy, it wasn't".
Apple launches new MacBook Pros with updated keyboard
While the exterior looks similar to the previous model, Apple has managed to upgrade the Retina Display with True Tone technology. Apple is responding to some of the complaints about the MacBook Pro with the release of new models Thursday.
The hearing evoked a significant reaction, with many describing it as a farce. But Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., cut him off and asked him to withdraw the assertion that Strzok had lied.
Republican arguments presumed that Strzok's opinions were tantamount to corrupt behavior.
Democratic members of the House committees participating in Strzok's hearing broke out into choruses of objections and repeatedly spoke over GOP lawmakers attempting to question Strzok.
"They aren't interested in hearing your context and explanation", Cicilline said. It also reflects an effort to shift attention away from the content of Strzok's texts and onto what he says is the more pressing issue: the Russians' "grave attack" on American democracy and continuing efforts to divide the country.
