Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs (R-CD5) was near the end of the batting order in the marathon House interrogation of embattled FBI Agent Peter Strzok yesterday, but he used his time to attempt to show how Strzok's long-running text conversation with FBI Attorney Lisa Page showed the mens rea of a crime of bias.
Biggs seemingly got further with his point than many of the more-combative Republican questioners, and Strzok acknowledged many of his interim points.
The tempers flared, however, at the end, after Biggs tried to wrap up by tying it in his earlier questioning of the DOJ Inspector General Horowitz. The Arizona Congressman said that Horowitz testified that Strzok was "the guy" on the Clinton email investigation.
Strzok asked to correct some of Biggs' misstatements. "I didn't say anything inaccurate," Biggs shot back.. Chairman Bob Goodlatte denied the request, and Democrats howled. "You've been out of order all day," Biggs retorted.
