Hearing a 'victory notch in Putin's belt': Federal Bureau of Investigation agent in Russian Federation probe

Former FBI agent Peter Strzok to lawmakers: Anti-Trump texts didn’t “impact any official action”
One of the recent hobgoblins of the right is that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had (has?) an explicit anti-Trump bias, and that this has corrupted them ideologically and led to partisan efforts to undermine the president.
Ahead of the hearing, Nadler and Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, issued a statement Wednesday knocking the questions Republicans had asked of Strzok in the closed session, including queries on his extramarital affair with Page and his vote in 2016.
Strzok worked on FBI investigations into both Clinton's use of an email server and potential co-ordination between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign.
Strzok argued that Mueller did not remove him from his team because of bias, but because of the perception the texts created.
Repulican Trey Gowdy of SC said Strzok exhibited "textbook bias" and in his mind had Clinton "winning the White House" before he finished her investigation.
Strzok endured roughly 11 hours of testimony before House lawmakers Thursday, with many Republicans focusing on his text of "we'll stop it" in reference to Trump's campaign. "No he won't. We'll stop it".
"I have the utmost respect for Congress's oversight role, but I truly believe that today's hearing is just another victory notch in Putin's belt and another milestone in our enemies' campaign to tear America apart", Strzok said.
"At no time in any of these texts did those personal beliefs ever enter into the realm of any action I took", Strzok said.
Strzok said "based on that frightful, disgusting behavior", he assumed Trump would not win the election. "Paris Nice, Brussels, Berlin, cities in American have all suffered terror attacks so it's for President Trump to explain why he singled me as the mayor of London out", he said.

Target Field dumps disgraced pizza vendor Papa John's
The naming rights deal for the football stadium is unique, because the school's deal is with Schnatter, not the Papa John's brand. The University of Louisville is renaming Papa John's Cardinal Stadium effective immediately, the school announced Friday.
The response was met with some applause in the committee room. Trump didn't do anything wrong, it's just one giant witch hunt!
He admitted in congressional testimony and in documents revealed by the Department of Justice that he sent a variety of text messages to Page in which he referred to the current President of the United States as "a f*cking idiot", while Page called Trump a "loathsome human".
US President Donald Trump may be out of the country, but Robert Mueller's investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation grinds on, and Thursday was a fairly dramatic day on multiple fronts. "But", he said, "the thought of exposing that information never crossed my mind".
But Republicans eager to undermine Mueller's investigation berated Strzok, citing the texts as evidence of partisan bias within law enforcement. "Agent Strzok had Donald Trump impeached before he even started investigating him".
"I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there's no big there there", Strzok said in the text.
"This has been an attack on you and a way to attack Mr. [Robert] Mueller and the investigation that is to get at Russian conclusion involved in our election, which is what this committee should be looking at", Cohen said of Republican attacks on Strzok.
Gowdy sparred with Strzok in a combative line of questioning that led to an extended argument between leaders of the committee during the public hearing. Jeffress added that Page received word from the Justice Department only "after 11 p.m".
Thursday, Chris Meekins, a senior HHS official, said any delay in reunifying children was necessary to ensure they weren't being handed over to human smugglers posing as parents, or parents who pose a danger.
Strzok, as he previewed in his opening statement, said he had been advised by the FBI's lawyers that he was not to address specifics of what is still an ongoing investigation.
