GOP lawmakers: Lisa Page more 'credible' witness than Peter Strzok

"We did not see the smug attitude that we saw from Strozk".

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.

Strzok said "based on that awful, disgusting behavior", he assumed Trump would not win the election. "Republican senator Ben Sasse wrote that email".

"She's an irrelevant actor in a sideshow", Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat, said of Page.

Democrats said it was notable how much more subdued Friday's interview was compared with the charged environment during Thursday's public hearing with Strzok.

Even members of congress appear to have preferred Page's hearing, with Republican Representative Mark Meadows telling CNN she was a "very credible witness".

She is scheduled to return for additional questioning Monday.

The congressional hearing with Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok went off the rails Thursday afternoon, and Rep. Stephen Lynch, somehow, got caught in the subsequent social media crossfire.

But there were "no calls for medication today", Krishnamoorthi said.

Giuliani's words followed those of other Republicans who attempted to seize on Strzok's texts with Page and his testimony as evidence of political bias toward Trump and his campaign, and as proof that the entire Mueller probe was propped up by a "deep state" intent on thwarting Trump's administration.

An attorney for Page said she skipped out on her initial interview on Wednesday, because she did not have enough time to review documents ahead of her testimony.

Strzok also said he was one of the few people during the 2016 USA 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.

It is point that has been largely brushed aside in Trump-friendly media circles, with a text Strzok sent to Page in May 2017 also receiving comparatively little scrutiny. But they argued they are doing important oversight work holding the FBI accountable for how it handled the Clinton and Russian Federation investigations in 2016.

Jolly, a frequent critic of Trump and the GOP since leaving office in 2017, made the comments a day after the House Judiciary and Oversight committees held a joint hearing, where Republican members grilled Strzok for about 10 hours. "And, this is a foreign entity not relating to Russian Federation".
