Peter Strzok Blasts House Hearing: This is ‘Another Victory Notch in Putin’s Belt’

Peter Strzok — the FBI agent who sent texts to fellow agent Lisa Page saying “we’ll stop” Donald Trump from becoming president — declared his appearance before the House Judiciary Committee as a victory for Vladimir Putin.

During his opening statement, Strzok blasted the proceeding.

“I have the utmost respect for Congress’s oversight role, but I truly believe that today’s hearing is just another victory notch in Putin’s belt and another milestone in our enemies’ campaign to tear America apart,” Strzok said. “As someone who loves this country and cherishes its ideals, it is profoundly painful to watch and even worse to play a part in.”
