FBI agent: My work has never been tainted by political bias

Wolf Blizter: The texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they are so damning.
"That's a disgrace", Cicilline said.
That set up perhaps the most pivotal moment of the ongoing hearing, as Mr Strzok attempted to defend his, and the FBI's, integrity and explained that the texts in questions came after Mr Trump insulted the Muslim parents of a slain U.S. soldier.
Strzok says in congressional testimony that the text reflected his view that the American people would not elect someone "demonstrating that behavior".
"Mr. Strzok, I don't know where to start", Cohen said as he started his allotted five minutes.
But some Democrats chose to go further than that and to make Strzok a martyr - or even a hero.
The Purple Heart typically is awarded to members of the US military who are wounded or killed by enemies in war. "If you want to represent what you said accurately I am happy to answer that question, but I don't appreciate what was originally said being changed".
After Watson Coleman had concluded her questioning, New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-Upper West Side) said he prepared a letter that called for former Breitbart editor and former Trump adviser Steve Bannon be called to testify before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees.
Strzok said he was directed by FBI's legal counsel not to answer questions about an ongoing investigation, but Goodlatte demanded that he answer Gowdy's question, prompting a lengthy delay before Strzok asked to speak to the FBI general counsel. Democrats are interrupting constantly, grandstanding pearl clutching, and engaging in some of the worst hypocrisy in recent memory.
Trump himself has launched personal attacks against the two Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, including a Wednesday evening tweet that asked "how can the Rigged Witch Hunt proceed when it was started, influenced and worked on, for an extended period of time" by Strzok. Goodlatte eventually let the hearing proceed without calling the panel into recess. What can she possibly say about her statements and lies. Gowdy was citing derogatory comments Strzok made in text messages while working on the investigations. The texts were discovered during the Justice Department inspector general's probe of the Clinton email investigation. "But", he said, "the thought of exposing that information never crossed my mind". "And it won't be recaptured any time soon because of the damage you've done to the justice system". (The investigation was handed over to special counsel Robert Mueller in mid-2017.) Republicans quickly objected and threatened to hold Strzok in contempt. Democrats noted that it was unusual that Strzok be asked to disclose such details in a public setting.
Republicans have cited Page's and Strzok's messages as evidence about what they call bias inside federal law enforcement and that conspirators launched the Russian Federation investigation out of partisan animus. Several people, apparently committee staffers, stood up behind Democratic lawmakers, holding large posters of all those who have already pleaded guilty so far in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe.
Strzok told lawmakers in his opening statement that he followed department protocol handling sensitive information about the extent of Russia's meddling in the US election and the Trump team's potential role in it.
That's according to prepared remarks obtained by The Associated Press.
Strzok, who helped lead investigations of Hillary Clinton's emails and ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, will testify publicly Thursday before Congress after previously testifying before lawmakers in a closed session.
"Muller never told me why I was being removed, but it had nothing to do with the text messages", he replied.
