GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert utterly unloaded on anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok during a fiery exchange before Congress Thursday; trashing the “smirking” DOJ official for his outright lies regarding his personal text messages.
Gohmert called-out Strzok to his face as he appeared before the House Judiciary Committee, saying “you have come in here and say, ‘I had no bias’ and you do it with a straight face.”
"This is intolerable harassment of a witness!"

The GOP legislator refused to withdraw his comments, doubling-down and saying Strzok was “not a member of Congress” and it’s “not a violation of the rule.”
The fiery exchange sparked a fierce backlash from Democrats on the Committee, with one going so far as to question whether Gohmert has gone “off his medication.”
