The corruption of the Mueller investigation is finally being exposed.
And Trey Gowdy led the charge with his interrogation of anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok.
In one exchange with Strzok, Gowdy said the seven words that left Robert Mueller in a panic.
After weeks of anticipation, Peter Strzok finally appeared before Congress to answer for the anti-Trump text messages he exchanged with another FBI agent at the height of the FBI’s Russia investigation.
Strzok was forced to answer for why he texted ex-FBI agent Lisa Page that they would “stop” Trump and why Mueller was forced to remove him from the investigation.
The highlight of Strzok’s interrogation was when he faced off with Trey Gowdy.
Strzok – who had a sarcastic grin plastered across his face the entire time – tried to give Gowdy attitude when the South Carolina lawmaker asked simple and straightforward questions.
The anti-Trump FBI agent growled back his answers and repeatedly lost control of his emotions.
Gowdy then asked Strzok about his meeting with Mueller when he took Strzok off the investigation.
Gowdy asked, “How long did you talk to him when he let you go?”
“My recollection it was a short meeting, somewhere between 15 to 30 minutes, probably around 15 minutes,” Strzok answered.
Gowdy grilled Strzok as to why he was dismissed from the Mueller probe:
“And your testimony is: Bob Mueller did not kick you off because of the content of your texts; he kicked out you off because of some appearance he was worried about.”
Strzok snarled back at Gowdy,
“My testimony — what you asked and what I responded to — is that he kicked me off because of my bias.”
“I’m stating to you it is not my understanding that he kicked me off because of any bias — that it was done based on the appearance. If you want to represent what you said accurately I’m happy to answer that question, but I don’t appreciate what was originally said being changed.”
Gowdy was infuriated by Strzok mouthing off to him and responded,
“I don’t give a damn what you appreciate Agent Strzok.”
“I don’t appreciate having an FBI agent with an unprecedented level of animus working on two major investigations during 2016.”
Strzok’s answers were simply not believable.
And they raise additional questions about Mueller and his investigation.
Did Mueller screen all of his hires for anti-Trump bias?
At least three members of the team have been sacked from the investigation because of text messages they sent expressing their hatred of Donald Trump.
It’s clear that Trey Gowdy has lost all patience with the FBI’s cover-ups.
Just weeks ago, Gowdy was defending the FBI from the charges that the Bureau dispatched a spy to infiltrate the Trump campaign.
But after Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report showed that the bias and corruption at the top levels of the FBI were even worse than anyone thought, Gowdy has been breathing fire.
Gowdy isn’t going to take anyone’s word that the Mueller investigation has been run on the up and up.
One of Congresses most dogged investigators has sunk his teeth into this case, and he isn’t going to let go until the whole truth has been discovered.
