FBI agent Peter Strzok actually did show up for his public hearing Thursday before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. (Lisa Page’s attorney says she will go in for her closed-door hearing tomorrow.) The immediate take-away from Strzok’s interview is that the Democrats are so terrified of questions being answered that expose the FBI’s activities, they’re willing to create just about the craziest scene ever witnessed in such a hearing. And that’s saying a lot.
It was just insane –- not just on the Democratic side, either, but mostly. It’s going to take me hours to pull my slack jaw off the floor and make some sense out of this mess. In the meantime, I’ll just let you know that I was absolutely correct in my prediction of what Strzok would say to weasel out of his most infamous text: “We’ll stop it.” (“We” doesn’t mean Strzok, Page and/or the patriots at the FBI --- it means “the American people.” I am not kidding; he wants us to buy that.)
As I write this, the questioning of Strzok is still going on. Stay tuned for my new list of questions for Strzok, the follow-up questions. Purely rhetorical, of course, because the row of FBI attorneys sitting behind him would surely instruct him not to answer, much as he would LOVE to, of course. Certainly anything involving Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr and/or Fusion GPS would send them all into a huddle of ridiculous length and seriousness.
So for now, we’ll just start with Question 1: Mr. Strzok, if, as you say, you feel frustrated over not being allowed to answer questions that you would LOVE to answer, why are you boasting that happy little cat-that-ate-the-canary grin?
