Representative Louie Gohmert went so far as to call out Strzok over his affair with Page, while other House Republicans, including Trey Gowdy, Jim Jordan and Bob Goodlatte, chastised him over what they believed was bias toward Trump during the investigations of Hillary Clinton's private email server and the Trump campaign's alleged contacts with Russian Federation during the 2016 campaign.
Trump himself has launched personal attacks against the two Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, including a Wednesday evening tweet that asked "how can the Rigged Witch Hunt proceed when it was started, influenced and worked on, for an extended period of time" by Strzok.
"Under oath, as I spoke also during my interview to you a week or two ago, I have always told the truth", Strzok began.
Strzok also said he was one of the few people during the 2016 US election who knew the details of Russian election interference and its possible connections with people in the Trump orbit, and that information could have derailed Trump's election chances.
"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.
Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee says Republican attacks on the anti-Trump FBI agent are an attempt to undermine the Russian collusion investigation.
Giuliani reiterated the president's nickname for special counsel Robert Mueller's probe-"witch hunt"-and claimed the probe should be wrapped up as soon as possible".
Ministry recalls some medicines containing valsartan over cancer fears
N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) has been detected in the valsartan active substancemanufactured by Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals. The company says that "no other Sandoz or Novartis products, even those that may contain valsartan, are affected by the recall".
But, he added in a raised voice and emphatic tone, "It was in no way - unequivocally - any suggestion that me, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, would take any action whatsoever to improperly impact the electoral process for any candidate".
Reading several of Strzok's text messages back to him, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) accused Strzok of having an "unusual and largely self-serving" definition of bias. "As someone who loves this country and cherishes its ideals, it is profoundly painful to watch and even worse to play a part in".
Just hours after Strzok's outrageous hearing, Lisa Page was questioned behind closed doors.
In the prepared remarks, Strzok acknowledges that while his text message criticism was "blunt", it was not directed at one person or political party, and included jabs not only at Trump, but also at Clinton as well as Sen.
The Justice Department's inspector general has criticized Strzok and Page for creating the appearance of impropriety.
Committee members sought to question Strzok about the texts and to determine how, if at all, his anti-Trump bias impacted the investigations. Horowitz told lawmakers after the report's release that he is not confident that Strzok was unbiased during the FBI's investigation into Clinton's emails. However, what he tweeted early this morning, might just take the cake for the most freaky comment he has made recently.
"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.
