After a contentious exchange between Democrats and Republicans during a House Judiciary and Oversight Committee hearing on Capitol Hill Thursday, Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte informed FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok he will be recalled later today and voted in contempt.
Goodlatte then tried to let Strzok respond to Gohmert's statements after the Texas Republican's time ended.
Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert went after FBI agent Peter Strzok during a televised House committee hearing Thursday for cheating on his wife with colleague Lisa Page druing the investigations into Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
"In the end the hearing did more to harm Congress and the Federal Bureau of Investigation than it did to expose wrongdoing", the Washington Post editorial board concluded on Friday in a piece titled The Strzok hearing damaged our democracy.
While some lawmakers are demanding that President Donald Trump immediately cancel his upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin following the indictment on Friday of 12 Russian military officers for "conspiring to interfere with the 2016 presidential election", Sen.
An embattled Federal Bureau of Investigation agent whose anti-Trump text messages exposed the Justice Department to claims of institutional bias launched a vigorous defense Thursday at an extraordinary congressional hearing that devolved into shouting matches, finger pointing and veiled references to personal transgressions.

Southgate to ring few changes for Belgium
Picking them up first and foremost, energising them for this game. That was just extra motivation for us. But there's something I want to say.
"I think it's important when you look at those texts that you understand the context in which they were made and the things going on across America", said Strzok. He said Strzok's texts were "the ideal foil" for Republicans. President Trump is being investigated by people who possess pathological hatred for him.
"Under oath, as I spoke also during my interview to you a week or two ago, I have always told the truth", Strzok began.
"This information had the potential to derail and quite possibly defeat Mr. Trump, but the thought of expressing that, or exposing that information never crossed my mind", Efe quoted Mr Strzok as telling to lawmakers during a congressional hearing. "Aw, Mr. Chairman, this is outrageous", one Democrat complained. Strzok was removed from the special counsel probe after the text messages were discovered past year, while Page had already left.
The Justice Department's inspector general has criticized Strzok and Page for creating the appearance of impropriety.
"It felt like a public lynching", Dana Perino, a Fox News Host and a former White House press secretary under President George W Bush, said of the Republicans' interrogation of Strzok. But the report said it found no evidence of political bias in the FBI's decision not to pursue criminal charges against Clinton. Strzok's lawyer said he was escorted from the Federal Bureau of Investigation building last month as the disciplinary process proceeds.
