FBI agent Peter Strzok arrives for a closed-door hearing on June 27 before the House Judiciary Committee

The White House said President Trump is monitoring the hearing from Europe.

"Not once in my 26 years of defending my nation did my personal opinions impact any official action I took", Strzok said.

Texas Republican Louie Gohmert attacks Strzok personally, as fellow members of both committees act out in his defense.

The President and his allies have cited the texts between Strzok and former Federal Bureau of Investigation agaent Lisa Page as evidence that Mueller's probe is biased against the President, and Trump tweeted about Strzok multiple times in the leadup to Thursday's hearing.

While reading one in which he used the f-word while talking about Trump, Strzok paused and asked how he should handle it, then finished.

"We have indulged this harassment [for] nine minutes", Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.), a member of the House Oversight Committee, interjected at one point during Gowdy's questioning.

The hearing was punctuated by chaos and open yelling as Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte said Strzok needed to answer Republicans' questions and suggested they might recess the hearing and hold him in contempt. Democrats objected to Goodlatte's repeated attempts to get Strzok to answer.

"The gentleman is not recognized", Goodlatte responded.

Page and Strzok both worked on the FBI investigation into Clinton's emails and, later, on special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

"You're under oath, I want you to say yes or no", Connolly told Strzok during the hearing. This is the man who signed off on the July 2016 counterintelligence probe into possible Russian collusion between the Trump camp and the Kremlin.

Her plumped up lips undoubtedly helped her sell the lip kits that do NOT include the fillers responsible for her ideal pout.

"There's no room for personal belief".

"When I tell you that I personally what I believe and what I did, I understand why people may have doubts".

In one exchange, Strozk vowed to "stop" Trump. "My presumption based on that terrible, disgusting behavior [was] that the American population would not elect somebody demonstrating that behavior to be president of the United States. So, I take great offense, and I take great disagreement to your assertion of what that was or wasn't". Democrats are interrupting constantly, grandstanding pearl clutching, and engaging in some of the worst hypocrisy in recent memory. "It simply couldn't happen".

In his opening statement to the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees, Strzok condemned the Republican Party for its characterization of his private messages as evidence that his agency was biased against President Donald Trump, and for holding a hearing that he said amounted to "another milestone in our enemies' campaign to tear America apart".

"I don't give a damn what you appreciate, agent Strzok". Gohmert speculated about whether he looked "so innocent" when he looked into his wife's eyes and lied about the affair. The Democrats are the ringmasters of political circuses-and they're only drive by their crap narratives and feelings.

Gohmert cut him off, shouting, "It is to your credibility, and you lost your credibility!"

He also said he would not be able to answer questions related to the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, on which he previously worked. At times they were also critical of Clinton.

He said that his text messages critical of Trump shortly after the investigation began were in response to Trump's behavior on the campaign trail - and not a reflection of his investigative intent.

"How can the Rigged Witch Hunt proceed when it was started, influenced and worked on, for an extended period of time, by former FBI Agent/Lover Peter Strzok?".

Jeffress accused the panels of using unnecessary "bullying tactics" to push Page into an interview immediately, especially when "she has offered to voluntarily appear before the committees later this month".
