    I'm shocked, shocked.

    It's not like every time there's a Congressional hearing another Zee narrative goes up in flames.

    So soon too after the Senate admitted Russia helped Tinks "win."

    Gowdy is a goober gone wild. Reminds me of that backwoods feller from "Deliverance" who sat in a tree and played a mean banjo. Ironically, the river setting featured in that film borders Gowdy's district. Hmmmmmm.

    That was a very good statement. Our elected officials are wasting time and money w/these ridiculous hearings in which Trump supporters can posture and pose and generally attempt to sow mistrust so as to undermine or deflect from the Mueller investigation.

    Which, as always, begs the question of why? Why didn't any other president go to such great lengths to fabricate such nonsense? Why didn't any other president's supporters work so hard to deflect and undermine an investigation?

    What is Trump hiding?

    ^ Ignores any fact that contradicts his bias and clings to those that he thinks support his bias, but really don't.

    I feel bad for Republicans. I hope GOP voters take the time to actually watch this. You're party is off the rails and not doing what's in this country's interest. This hearing is proof positive of that.

    This guy has brought down spy rings in our country, explicitly said he aligns himself with Kasich's politics, and said in his texts he was proud to be on team USA. Yet again, this is simply a farce to protect and obstruct for a criminal President and criminals within the GOP. Period.

    But yet, when Kjirsten Nielsen said she didn't recall Tinks saying "sh!thole" we had to believe it.

    I feel bad for conservatives. Not Republicans.

    These are the same people that confirmed a former Alfa Bank leader who never tried a case to lead the DOJ Criminal Division and pretend they are for law and order.

    The Republican Party is a bigoted, authoritarian circus trying to change the rules and override democracy because they are facing a demographic apocalypse.

    Strzok’s credibility suffers greatly when he disowns the contempt for Trump supporters he expressed in his text messages. That’s just not believable.

    Otherwise I think he’s doing okay.

    So you repeatedly claim all Republicans are bigoted, racists and authoritarians, but then denounce me as a "blind partisan" for saying the left hates America. You are as partisan as they come fella.

    this and that:

    Strzok says he could have a personal bias against Trump and for Hillary, and it did not affect his investigation at all

    this is hard for some to believe, yet it is hard to prove otherwise.

    he does a good job defending himself in that regard, and his defense is hard to break down.

    on the other hand, he had emails about impeaching Trump, in what seemed to be days after his election, and then goes about that investigation...... tougher to defend

    Strzok clearly has a personal bias against Trump. That said, he comes across as completely credible in his testimony.

    Serious Question: has any evidence been presented that he improperly hid or destroyed any facts, information or documents that would exonerate Trump and/or his campaign?

    Probably out of an abundance of caution to make sure there was no appearance of bias and the fact that the affair and texts were inappropriate ( which is what Mueller called them, I believe). I believe that the IG said there was no bias in any actual decision making

    The $MIL question (which still remains open AFAIK) was what exactly was the genesis behind their FISA warrant and why were embedded "informants" required without informing Trump's campaign.

    Why would you say it is clear he has a bias when he had tweets against HRC, Bernie and other Republicans and he admitted to preferring Kasich. If he really had a bias he could have destroyed the Trump campaign simply leaking the investigation of Trump’s connection with Russia. This is also true for Comey.

    Gowdy's ok. Just political above country like every Representative there.

    Didn't look too happy being lectured by Strzok but kinda deserved it.

    The consumers of the Hannity/Trump, conspiracy/propaganda drivel know that its all a farce. They know there is no deep state that the Stzork/Hannity nonsense was all part of this elaborate game of lying and deceit. That's what makes them all, horrible Americans and a disgrace to our flag, our country and our constitution. They support propaganda and sadly will all be tuned in to Hanniity tonight to get their new talking points, however crazy and undeniably farcical that they may be. It's all so sad for Trumpanzees. On the wrong side of truth, morality, democracy and America.

    Yep, and most people are biased towards, or away from, various political things. Including most FBI agents. But, as Strzok said in his statement, having opinions doesn't mean they don't do their jobs well.

    Does anybody here think there aren't FBI agents who are strongly biased against Hillary? Or against Democrats in general? Of course there are. I personally know a couple FBI agents who are strongly conservative and who totally hate Hillary. If I recorded some of what they've said over the years, it would make what Strzok texted look laughably tame.

    Everybody has their biases. This whole congressional "investigation" is a ridiculous, overly political sham.

    Not all. But a very solid number. They have many proud, admitted Nazis running for office in 2018.

    I'm partisan in the sense I'm against authoritarians. It's why we disagree so often. I want smaller government free from Russia influence. You want East Germany walls, Saudi Sharia making women cover up, and Mussolini-style corporate deference. I don't apologize for that- my party is America and the Constitution.

    Of course not.

    The IG report found nothing.

    He has been charged with no crimes, as opposed to campaign and admin members.

    It's open?

    Did you miss Papadopolous pleading guilty and several GOP judges and Rosenstein, among others, approving those warrants of someone who was a known Russian asset since when Dear Leader said Hillary was fabulous?

    The thing that kills you and destroys the reality of any “deep state” conspiracy is all he had to do was go public or even leak news about the investigation during the campaign and he could have damaged trump. But he didn’t. He did his job.

    It is absurd to think he was plotting some merging when the easiest thing for him to do would have been to expose what he found right then.

    And you know this too...

    I can only imagine how bummed out partisan freak shows like "Judge" Jeanine and Sean Hannity and their braindead followers are going to be. Twitter is blowing up with how bad this is for the GOP.

    Isn't it funny how GOP investigations into Hillary, Comey and the FBI have resulted in ZERO charges, and Mueller has 23? Is the GOP incompetent, lying or both?

    Just proves it's all a political dog and pony show on both sides. Wake me up when someone provides evidence of collusion or obstruction. Yeah I know, I know, I'll just have to wait right before the mid-terms, by sheer coincidence of course.
