Goodlatte (0.03s): “Your texts and emails make it appear you’d come to a conclusion on the Clinton case long before you had interviewed many witnesses including Clinton herself. You also appear to have been pining for the impeachment of President Trump at the very beginnings of the Russia case. Does the FBI normally make such decisions on whether to recommend prosecution or exoneration so far ahead of all the facts coming to light.”
Goodlatte (1.38): “Then let me ask you this about that. In regard to those cases was it normal behaviour on your part to chat with colleagues in the manner you did on the Russia case about how much you despised the very person you were investigating or complimenting the person you’re investigating in the Clinton case. Is that typical?”
Goodlatte (2.44): “Do you. Do you recognise how your vitriol against President Trump makes it appear you could never approach the case in a fair-minded manner.”
Goodlatte (2.55): “So let’s discuss a text that hits home for me. On August 26, 2016 you texted Ms. Page. Quote: ‘Just went to a Southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support’. And ‘SMELL’ is in capital letters. All capital letters. What does Trump support ‘SMELL’ like Mr. Strzok.”
Goodlatte (4.10): “Do you consider Trump supporters to be ignorant hillbillies?”
Strzok (4.15): “Sir. The first thing I’d tell you is as a proud Fairfax County resident there’s a healthy sort of competition between Fairfax and Loudoun.
Goodlatte (4.37): “So do. Do you understand the implications of this text when my constituents in Virginia read it?”
