Jimmy Kimmel Watches 'Republicans Lose Their Minds' At House Hearing

"It was in response to a series of events that included then-candidate Trump insulting the immigrant family of a fallen war hero", Strzok said, "and my presumption based on that frightful, disgusting behavior, that the American population would not elect someone demonstrating that behavior to be president of the United States".

Gowdy pressed Strzok on the texts during the back-and-forth, at one point telling the FBI agent that it's "no wonder Bob Mueller kicked you off the investigation".

The hearing dissolved into chaos after Gohmert asked, "How many times did you look so innocently into your wife's eye and lie to her about Lisa Page?". New Jersey Democratic Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman said, "You need your medication!"

"This is an intolerable harassment of a witness!" shouted Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island.

"I do not withdraw it, he is not a member of Congress, it's not a violation of the rule", Gohmert responded.

Ultimately Strzok responded to a question from Gowdy about the early portion of the Russian Federation investigation by defending his own work and the work of the FBI.

But there was no stopping the Serb once he made it on to Court One as he romped to a 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 win to reach the quarter-finals for a 10th time.

"Mr. Strzok, are you starting to understand why some folks out there don't believe a word you say?" said Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas.

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.

Strzok's statement also denied that political considerations have ever affected his official acts as an investigator. He said the late-night, off-the-cuff text reflected his belief that Americans would not stomach such "horrible, disgusting behavior" by the presidential candidate.

"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 is expected to say.

"Here is the big takeaway: There are three facts that work against the GOP, and I don't know they did anything to vitiate or get rid of them today", Cuomo said, running through them.

But Republicans insisted Strzok's testimony showed the extent to which bias infected the Russian Federation inquiry.

Power outages, flooding hits Puerto Rico, USVI amid storms
Marshall Alexander, with Dominica's Meteorological Service, told the AP that no landslides or widespread flooding were reported. Puerto Rico's east coast was the most affected even as people in that region struggle to recover from Hurricane Maria.

"Russian interference in our elections constitutes a grave attack on our democracy", Peter Strzok told lawmakers in his prepared opening statement.

Page's appearance follows Strzok's explosive public hearing appearance on Thursday, where he tangled openly with Republican lawmakers.

"To suggest we can parse down the shorthand like they're some contract for a vehicle is simply not consistent with my or most people's use of text messaging", Strzok said, practically yelling at Gowdy.

But after threats of being held in contempt, Page agreed to a closed-door interview Friday and then again on Monday afternoon.

Her lawyer said Page had not been allowed to review documents she needed to prepare. Democrats objected to Goodlatte's repeated attempts to get Strzok to answer.

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".

Trump bashes North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members: Who pays what?
The hint of USA withdrawal from Europe, while unlikely, indeed seems to have made many countries hike their defense spending . Today Europeans spend on defence many times more than Russian Federation , and as much as China.

"To my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, please replace President Trump's name with your own name in a small sample of things Mr. Strzok has said", he said.
