In the last hour of a long day, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar (R-CD4) got his chance to question embattled FBI Agent Peter Strzok. The interrogation started off smoothly enough, with the Congressman trying to show that Strzok's text messages may be used to show a bias, similar to how President Trump's comments about a Muslim ban were used in court fights.
When Strzok disagreed with that analogy, things got heated, and Gosar tried to drill down further.
"By the way, I'm a dentist, OK? So, I read body language very, very well." Gosar stated Strzok's reaction earlier in the day to questioning (by Rep. Gowdy) about "the Gold Star father". "That shows me that it is innately a part of you and a bias."
Strzok disagreed and tried to joke that the long interrogation might be compared to going to the dentist's office. That got a smile from Gosar, and Strzok went on to indicate that his body language showed that he had "a genuine passion for the United States of America."
Gosar concluded his time by correcting Strzok on the difference between a "democracy" and a "constitutional republic."
