Peter Strzok is the FBI agent who worked on the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation as well as the bogus Russian collusion investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He has also been caught making statements that he would do whatever he could to make sure Donald Trump never became president. Because of this glaring bias and the investigations he worked on, he was called to testify before Congress. Rather than getting to the issue however, democrats submarined the testimony and creamed their jeans in praise of this disgraced FBI agent.
Let’s pick up the action where democrats actually applaud Strzok after a lengthy rant where he tried to bullshit his way out of owning text messages in which he said he was going to stop Trump from being president.

That’s bad, but this is downright shameless. Here is Tennessee democrat Steve Cohen saying Strzok deserves a Purple Heart:

Wow, just wow. It wasn’t all love for Strzok from the democrats. Here, New Jersey Rep. Bonnie Watson gives the pathetic FBI agent crap for not stopping Trump like he promised:

After spending most of the Strzok hearing defending the FBI, Rep. Watson Coleman (D-NJ) cuts the other way: “If anybody should be pissed at the FBI, it should be me… But for you, we would have had a legitimate president elected.”

Things got worse from there. Strzok repeatedly refused to answer questions which prompted Republican Trey Gowdy to threaten him with a contempt of Congress charge. That made the democrats do this:
The explosive hearing on Capitol Hill with disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok came to a brief halt on Thursday as Democrats unsuccessfully tried to change the subject to a discussion about holding ex-White House aide Steve Bannon in contempt for not answering questions from lawmakers earlier this year.
California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell made the motion to subpoena President Trump’s former adviser after House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., threatened to proceed with a contempt citation for Strzok if he continued to refuse to answer questions Thursday about the FBI’s Russia investigation.
“I move to subpoena Steve Bannon,” Swalwell interjected, amid a heated back-and-forth between Republicans on the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees and Strzok over his refusal to address certain questions from South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy.
Swalwell seemed to argue that if Republicans want to hold Strzok in contempt, they should also consider contempt proceedings for Bannon. Bannon invoked executive privilege during closed-door testimony on Capitol Hill earlier this year.
Republicans did score some major points showing how full of crap Strzok is and how he comprised his investigations related to Trump and Hillary. The big win however is that the American people got to see what a bunch of partisan hacks democrats are and how they only care about the law when they think it’s used to go after president Trump.
