Democratic lawmaker regrets call for 'Purple Heart' for Strzok

Mr Strzok's case has been used by the president and many Republicans to discredit Mueller's investigation on alleged ties between Trump's campaign and the Kremlin.

"President Trump should cancel his meeting with Vladimir Putin until Russian Federation takes demonstrable and transparent steps to prove that they won't interfere in future elections", the New York Democrat said. Strzok testified Thursday that his texts "have created confusion and caused pain for people I love" and "have provided ammunition for misguided attacks against the Federal Bureau of Investigation, an institution I love deeply and have served proudly for more than 20 years".

An FBI agent who criticized Donald Trump in text messages during the 2016 campaign vigorously defended himself at a raucous congressional hearing on Thursday that highlighted the deep divisions over a probe of Russian election meddling that has clouded Trump's presidency.

Mueller removed Strzok from the Russian Federation investigation past year after learning of numerous rabidly anti-Trump and pro-Clinton text messages that Strzok traded with his then-lover Lisa Page, who was an FBI lawyer at the time.

"Well, hang on a second, Agent Strzok!"

Republican Rep. Darrell Issa made Strzok read some of his texts aloud, including some with profane language.

Princess Charlotte to photographers: 'You're not coming'
Aside from Middleton and Pelly, the list includesNicholas van Cutsem, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lady Laura Meade and Robert Carter. William encouraged George and Charlotte to "shake hands" with Justin Welby and praised his daughter when she dutifully obeyed.

"This is about promoting a narrative, you're a prop", said Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I. Does he really think we are so gullible that we would buy his absurd claim that his "we'll stop it" text meant all of us - the American people - would act to stop Trump from becoming president?

"They behaved like children", Jolly said on MSNBC.

Horowitz, however, concluded that the political views of those agents did not affect the conclusions of the Clinton investigation. They were horrified, for example, by the fact that Strzok and Page's conversations would sometimes begin via text until one of them suggested moving to iMessage or private email.

Judging Strzok also would have been Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, but he recently resigned after revelation of a taxpayer-funded sexual harassment settlement. And my presumption, based on that frightful, disgusting behavior, that the American population would not elect somebody demonstrating that behavior to be president of the United States. "So, I take great offence, and I take great disagreement to your assertion of what that was or wasn't".

Plus, he said, both investigations were handled by large teams.

"I am ashamed of the Justice Department today". "It simply couldn't happen".

Dejan Lovren demands respect after matching Thierry Henry feat
Lovren told CNN that they are a small country, only four million people and have big talent in their squad. Lovren agreed that the first 45 minutes was tough as his side failed to take control of the ball.

"This decision is long overdue", Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte said in announcing the arrangement.

"I don't give a damn what you appreciate, agent Strzok".

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., held open the possibility that the panel would still hold Strzok in contempt because he wouldn't answer questions about the ongoing Russian Federation investigation. Gohmert speculated about whether he looked "so innocent" when he looked into his wife's eyes and lied about the affair.

The comments sparked immediate objections from Democrats, who called them outrageous, and Strzok was livid.

"We must speak with one voice in making clear to Vladimir Putin: 'We will not allow you to interfere in our democratic processes or those of our allies, '" Sanders wrote in a tweet on Friday. Gohmert tried to shout over him and the committee chairman vainly tried to restore order.
