Rep. Gerry Connolly (D) from Virginia just set things straight in the “Russian Show Trial” of Peter Strzok.  According to him, “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” and he proceeded to give the ganders what they had given Strzok – a public reading of personal emails.  Emails that contained the same sentiments that Strzok penned in 2016 – yet these emails were from Republicans.

FBI Agent, Peter Strzok testified today defending his actions during investigations of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election at a joint hearing before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees.  As a part of the Oversight Committee, Rep. Gerry Connolly from Virginia asked questions of Strzok and was not making any apologies – to Republicans, that is.

He started his questioning Strzok by stating that the hearing was “a new low in the United States Congress.  What a shame.”

He then said, “And my understanding is the big Republican beef, in order to discredit you and discredit the FBI, and thereby, hopefully, in their point of view –  is to undermine the Mueller investigation, hinges on the fact that you sent out some indiscreet, personal emails about your political views on the then pending 2016 election.”

He then proceeded to read aloud various texts and emails from Republicans, penned during the same time frame as Peter Strzok.  After reading the emails, Connolly said to Strzok, “So, it sounds like, when you were writing these emails in the heat of the campaign, you had a lot of good company on the Republican side of the aisle.  And now you’re an orphan.”

If you have 5 minutes, it’s worth watching the whole thing here:

While he did not apologize to any Republicans during his exchange, Connolly did say this to Strzok.

“I thank you.  And I’m so sorry for the treatment you’ve received here today.  As a member of Congress and as a member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, I take no pleasure in watching this spectacle.”

Way to go Rep. Connolly!!

  1. Those GOP scumbags need to be treated like that everyday. A bunch of ball less jerks who think because they have a title in front of their name, they should be treated special. They should be treated special, s traitors and should receive everything they deserve. It’s time to run them out and don’t allow them to leave rich, after stealing the American peoples money. Don’t wait, the time is now.

  2. The republican gop is about worthless as tits on a bored hog, they don’t have the balls to tell trump how fucked up he is and yet they want to ruin an fbi agents career over some bull shit

  3. Today’s news kicks back a lot of the senseless rhetoric those idiots spew yesterday in the interest of protecting the ego of the Fat-Bully.
