“I think it harms our relationship with Russia,” he said. “I actually think it hurts our relations with many countries.”

The explosive and combative 10-hours-testimony of Strzok was the first time he’s spoken publicly since he was removed last year by special counsel Robert Müller the team because of the texts he traded with a FBI lawyer in the run-up to the 2016 presidential elections.

Strzok insisted that he never allowed personal opinions to influence his work, although he did not recognize as dismay of Donald Trump ‘ s during the campaign.

“At no time, in none of these texts, such as personal beliefs ever enter the realm of the every action I took,” said Strzok. “And the suggestion that I threw in some dark chamber, in the FBI, that would kind of set aside all of these procedures, all of these security measures, and somehow be able to do this is amazing to me.”

Strzok added: “The sentence that what is going on or that it could happen in the FBI deeply corroded, what is the FBI in American society, the effectiveness of their mission and it is deeply destructive.”

To break In his silence, Strzok face came to face with the Republicans, which argued that the text-stained two enormously consequential damages FBI probes he had helped, taxes: inquiries in Hillary Clinton’s E-Mail use and the possible coordination between the Trump campaign, and Russia.

Republicans-Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina was one of the FBI agent’s sharpest critics during the testimony, berated Strzok about the content of his text messages, his alleged bias against Trump and why he was taken from the Mueller’s investigation into the Russian interference in the election of 2016.

“Agent Strzok had to win Hillary Clinton the White house, before he finished investigation,” said Gowdy, the Chairman of the House Oversight and government Reform Committee. “Agent Strzok had accused Donald Trump, even before he examined started him. This is bias.”

The testimony, apart from convincing display, also showed how the partisan divide over the inquiry of the Russian interference in the choice of the trump suit remains steep, deep, without political bridge in sight.

On the one hand, the Democrats are in Strzok, the testimony of an unwavering, if faulty, the G-man to stop the Russian interference in the American democracy. On the other hand, the Republicans, the anti-Trump-text messages are sent Strzok, with his mistress as evidence of alarmist bias at the highest levels of government.

The aftermath produced a certainty: the Congress is hopelessly divided in the leadership of the Executive authorities of the control of trump management. The legislators reflect their constituents, and after the run on partisan overdrive for years, they sat defiantly opposite sides. The level of bitterness provides a real-life stress test for the ability of Congress to function.

“Politicians love to grandstand, and this was the perfect place for all of them, in a way,” said Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., who said the process reminded him of the Bill-Clinton-impeachment-meetings, he watched as a young man of two decades ago. In fact, some of the same veteran lawmakers were still there and played the main roles, he said. “And I would argue that Mr Strzok, it was also a little bit.”
