Peter Strzok’s congressional testimony last week was smug, evasive and defensive, to say the least. No matter how damning the evidence was against him, there was always a reasonable explanation, from his perspective, on why he repeatedly sent text messages painting a picture of collusion against a would-be president. Then came Lisa Page. In contrast, her testimony was ‘contrite’ and much more forthright in explaining that many of the texts were exactly as they appear. So what we have here is a tale of two cities in which congressional leaders must decide whether the smoke leads to a gun or simply to an innocent campfire, as Strzok would have us believe. Something tells us they’re not in the mood to go camping.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire…
Congressional leaders have praised the testimony of former FBI agent Lisa Page in recent days and have said that they found her testimony to be very credible as some of them claim she gave a very different account of events than her former lover, disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok.
Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo that there were “significant differences” in Page’s testimony compared to the testimony given by Strzok and that she gave congressional investigators new information they did not previously have.
“In many cases, she admits that the text messages mean exactly what they say, as opposed to Agent Strzok, who thinks that we’ve all misinterpreted his own words on any text message that might be negative,” Ratcliff told reporters on Monday, according to ABC News.
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) agreed with Ratcliffe’s statement, saying, “She’s certainly more cooperative than Peter Strzok was and the pieces of information filled in some blanks along the way, but we’ve got a huge jigsaw puzzle to put together.”
