This you really have to see.

To say Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) doesn’t believe FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s claims that there was “no bias in my professional actions” might be an understatement.

“Let me tell you, when you have text messages Mr. Strzok the way you do, saying the things you did, you would be better off coming in and saying that was my bias, Gohmert told the FBI investigator.

“You have come in here and said ‘I have no bias.’ And you do it with a straight face. And I watched you in the private testimony you gave, and I told some of the other guys, ‘he is really good, he’s lying - he knows we know he’s lying and he could probably pass the polygraph,” Gohmert continued.

Democrats expressed their objections, but Gohmert didn’t stop there.

"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 eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page?"

"Credibility of the witness is always an issue."

Strzok and Page exchanged several text messages on their FBI-issued phones expressing hostility toward then-candidate Trump in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, even as Strzok was a lead investigator on the Hillary Clinton and Russian meddling probes.
