Hearing On Russia Probe Devolves Into Shouting Match

Politics

It was a congressional hearing that devolved into a shouting match.
    
An embattled FBI agent whose anti-Trump text messages exposed the Justice Department to claims of institutional bias vigorously defended himself at the chaotic, 10-hour hearing.
    
Peter Strzok on Thursday testified publicly for the first time since being removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team following the discovery of texts last year traded with an FBI lawyer in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election. He insisted he never allowed personal opinions to affect his work, though he did acknowledge being dismayed by Donald Trump’s behavior during the campaign.  He also said he never contemplated leaking damaging information he knew about the Trump campaign.
