The only regret Rep. Louie Gohmert had over personal insults he hurled at former FBI agent Peter Strzok was that the outburst took attention away from bombshell information on Hillary Clinton.
The Texas Republican made astounding accusations against the former presidential candidate, declaring she “compromised America’s security” with the use of her unauthorized private email server.
Strzok “was told by the intelligence community inspector general’s investigator Frank Rutger that they had found an anomaly in the emails going to and from Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized private server,” Gohmert told Brian Kilmeade on Fox News.
“And it was when they forensically examined the anomaly, they found embedded information, and it was a foreign entity, not Russia, but a foreign entity that was getting every single one of her, over thirty thousand, emails,” he explained on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday.
“And it wasn’t Russia,” Gohmert pointed out, “it wasn’t Russia!”
“So you’re saying that in Hillary Clinton’s emails,” Kilmeade, who was sitting in for host Tucker Carlson, asked, “they were forwarded to someone else?”
“Yes, and it was because they were hacked,” Gohmert replied, “and [DOJ Inspector General] Horowitz didn’t point that out, you know they, and the previous story you know that [former FBI Director James] Comey gave us, well it was not a good server, it was possible that it got hacked, but there was no evidence that it was hacked, and then we find out, and that’s what I brought out today, that the intelligence community, IG, brought it to their attention and they did nothing. Nothing!”
“And this is a foreign entity, not related to Russia in the least!” Gohmert exclaimed. “She compromised America’s security!”
The Texas lawmaker had unloaded on Strzok during his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee this week, confronting him about his affair with FBI colleague Lisa Page, with whom he had exchanged controversial anti-Trump text messages.
“When I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page?” Gohmert questioned in an explosive moment during the hearing.
Kilmeade asked the congressman if he had meant to bring up Strzok’s infidelity or if he just lost his temper during the questioning.
“No, I didn’t go into it intending to do that, but as I sat there listening to him so smugly — his little smirk — and he lied repeatedly and he knew he was lying. He knew I knew he was lying — and yet, he still would lie,” Gohmert replied.
