If you want a good look at the face of classic Federal arrogance look at the face of Peter Strzok during his recent testimony before Congress. He was alternately smug, arrogant, threatening and, worse than that, part of the time he looked almost completely unhinged, like he was about to lose it.
The headline on https://thehornnews.com for July 12th about this august”gentleman” was Disgraced FBI agent screams at Congress over bias questions.
You will recall that Mr. Strzok was the author of numerous emails to his paramour about how bad Trump was and how they had to “stop him” from being president. The emails were bad enough that they got him kicked off the investigation team of the chief witch-hunter, Robert Mueller. His comments were so blatant that Mueller didn’t dare leave him there. His anti-Trump bias was almost malevolent.
Yet when he testified before the congressional committees he had the gall to say that his extreme anti-Trump bias in no way affected his FBI investigation of the phony “Russian collusion” and related events. If you ever read some of his email messages to his lover you have to realize that his bias against Trump went way beyond extreme. Yet he sat and told the congressmen who questioned him that he in no way let that bias affect his investigative work. Apparently he thinks that Congress and the rest of us are stupid–and the condescending smirk on his face portrayed that amply. He basically told the congressional committee, and by implication, the rest of us, to stuff it. You could see the federal arrogance on his face–I’m part of the Establishment and I don’t have account to you people–I do what I want and if you don’t like it that’s tough!
To the credit of the congressmen they didn’t let up on him and they asked him questions he didn’t like and questions where he tried to hide behind his “classified information” persona. I got the impression he sat there and laughed at the congressmen silently. He thought it was great fun. He’s spent his public career stiffing the public and he likes it because, in his inestimable view, we are not fit to lick his boots. He thinks the same of us all that Hitlery does–a bunch of deplorables that he claims he can smell when he goes to markets in Virginia.
A little humility would do Mr. Strzok a world of good because he doesn’t seem to possess an awful lot of it. And let’s don’t be dumb enough to let him kid us. His extreme bias against Trump does affect what he does and how he does it and for him to claim it doesn’t is just his lame attempt to spread pure grade bovine fertilizer all over the place to fool what he thinks is a contemptible public.
These “public servants” are anything but that and if you knew what they really thought of us you would positively cringe. But if you want to get even a small idea, look at Strzok’s face on the witness stand. He alternately thinks you are stupid and hates your guts and of course, none of this involves any bias on his part, remember that!
