WATCH LIVE: TRUMP SENATE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DAY 2

Maher Blasts ‘Smoking Gun-Type’ Text From IG Report: Strzok Was Just ‘Trying To Impress The Girl He Was F**king’

Bill Maher sounded off on the recently-released DOJ IG report on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.

He began by mocking President Trump for his repeated assertions that the IG report absolves him over the Russia investigation, but Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) pointed out how “seven words” have gotten so much attention. She was referring to the text FBI agent Peter Strzok sent during the election to his lover Lisa Page that “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming president.

Maher himself weighed in on Strzok’s infamous text.

“So nobody reads the 500 pages. Our side never catches a break!” Maher exclaimed. “They’ve got this one thing that is a smoking gun-type thing. And thisĀ is not just an opinion when it’s a guy in the FBI in charge of investigations, he wasn’t doing that! He was trying to impress the girl he was f**king! That’s all it was! She is saying, ‘Oh my God! Is Trump going to be president?’ He says, ‘No, I’m Captain Save-A-Ho… and I will stop it baby!'” It was to make the sex hotter! But that is all they need! That is all the foot in the door they need and they’re already calling for the Mueller investigation to be shut down because of that!”
