Jimmy Kimmel Watches 'Republicans Lose Their Minds' At House Hearing

The talk show host let highlights of the Capitol Hill testimony provide the jokes for him.

A joint House hearing to question an FBI agent who worked on investigations involving both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton quickly devolved into chaos as Republicans demanded he answer questions about the Russian Federation investigation.

That meant Justice Department investigators could access all their messages, including the ones in which they criticized Trump and appeared to discuss how they might use their powers to keep him from being elected.

On Friday, Page will sit down with the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform Committees, which have sought her testimony for seven months.

But there was one particular exchange, involving Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.), a social conservative, that stood out for its personal animus and, many charged, its hypocrisy.

Strzok had told Gowdy he was unable to answer a question related to the Russian Federation probe, saying he had been instructed not to comment on matters related to an ongoing investigation.

Watch "Republicans Lose Their Minds", as "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" titled the segment, above.

Those remarks resulted in further interjections from Democrats, who said Gohmert was harassing Strzok and impugning the agent's character.

"I can't help but wonder, when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife's eye and lie to her about Lisa Page!".

Trump himself has launched personal attacks against the two Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, including a Wednesday evening tweet that asked "how can the Rigged Witch Hunt proceed when it was started, influenced and worked on, for an extended period of time" by Strzok.

"They're treating us with much more respect right now than they did in the past", Trump told reporters after a summit of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels.

Strzok acknowledged that while his text message criticism was "blunt", it was not directed at one person or political party and included jabs not only at Trump but also at Clinton and Sen.

However, House Republicans, capitalizing on the text messages in an effort to discredit Mueller's investigation, said they didn't believe Strzok.

"I am stating to you it is not my understanding that he kicked me off because of any bias that it was done based on the appearance", Strzok said. But the report said it found no evidence of political bias in the FBI's decision not to pursue criminal charges against Clinton.

In one exchange, Ms. Page, who also worked on both investigations, said to Mr. Strzok that Trump is "not ever going to become president, right?"

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, threatened Strzok with contempt, claiming he was under subpoena.

Strzok said "based on that frightful, disgusting behavior", he assumed Trump would not win the election.

In his opening statement, Strzok said he has never allowed personal opinions to infect his work, that he knew information during the campaign that had the potential to damage Trump but never contemplated leaking it and that the focus put on him by Congress is misguided and plays into "our enemies' campaign to tear America apart". He said Strzok's texts were "the flawless foil" for Republicans. President Trump is being investigated by people who possess pathological hatred for him.
