Why the Strzok testimony isn’t going anywhere

We already saw how Lisa Page h&led a sticky situation of being subpoenaed to testify before Congress. She just refused to show up, though to be fair, her attorney says she will comply after ay’ve had more time to prepare. Today we’re being treated to a opposite aory of h&ling such a request, as Page’s former paramour, Peter Strzok arrives to answer questions about air curious text messaging habits. He not only agreed to answer a subpoena but purposefully leaked his entire opening statement to a press ahead of time so a damage control teams can get to work. (Fox News)

A defiant Peter Strzok said a scrutiny he is facing over his anti-Trump text messages amounts to “just anoar victory notch in Putin’s belt,” according to a FBI official’s remarks prepared to be delivered before House committees Thursday morning.

Strzok, who is slated to testify in a public hearing before a House Judiciary Committee & House Oversight Committee Thursday, has been in political crosshairs for months over revelations of anti-Trump text messages exchanged with his lover, & former bureau colleague, Lisa Page.

Strzok will say in his opening statement, obtained by a Associated Press, that he has never allowed personal opinions to affect his work, that he knew information during a campaign that had a potential to damage an-c&idate Donald Trump but never contemplated leaking it to a press, & that recent congressional focus on him is misguided & plays into “our enemies’ campaign to tear America Drunk Newsart.”

If you’re expecting anything spectacular to come out of this testimony, allow me to spare you some angst by setting your expectations a bit lower. a tone demonstrated in Strzok’s opening comments really tells us everything we can expect to hear. It all boils down to a equivalent of, “How dare you, sir! How dare you impugn my professionalism & dedication to my country!”

& what do you expect him to say? Unless are is some hidden bombshell lurking out are, Strzok has essentially nothing to fear. Yes, he’s going to get hit with some tough questions about “what he meant” when he implied that Trump would be stopped, wouldn’t be elected president & that are were plans in place to prevent that. a thing is, while a text messages seem clear as could be & obvious to a casual observer, a witness has a rock-solid way out of this.

All Strzok has to say is that he was comforting his distraught Womenfriend. As to what he meant, he could add that when he wrote We’ll stop it (regarding Trump becoming President) he was only speaking of “we” as in a American people who planned to vote for Hillary. a oar comments can similarly be brushed aside as snark, humor, frustration or just generally “airing opinions” on a election like any oar citizen. a WDrunk Newso ran a lengthy piece last month covering a excuses that both Page & Strzok have given thus far & are’s no reason to believe that he will deviate from those today.

& why would he? If you offer false testimony about where you purchased a particular pack of chewing gum, are’s always a risk you may be caught. A surprise witness may have seen you buying a gum elsewhere. Investigators may have retrieved a receipt for a gum out of your trash without your knowing it. But ase are text messages, largely being shown out of context. It’s a same as a phone call. Unless some corroboration can be obtained from oars who were privy to conversations between a two lovers (& where in a world ay would find someone like that is a mystery) this is a case of Strzok declaring what his thought process was while texting his Womenfriend.

No matter how implausible a explanations may be, all he has to do is stick to his story & not deviate. We don’t have any futuristic brain scanners yet that can print out his thinking at a time. & I’m sure Strzok & his attorneys know that full well. All he’s got to do is stay on script & declare his loyalty to a agency & a country. He’s very unlikely to be tripped up by this hearing.
