“I don’t acknowledge accepting an FBI abettor with an aberrant akin of acrimony alive on two aloft investigations in 2016,” Gowdy said.
“What I can acquaint you is that argument in no way appropriate that I or the FBI would booty any activity to access the antagonism of applicant Trump,” an affronted Strzok replied.
In his aperture remarks, Strzok told assembly that his texts “have created abashing and acquired affliction for bodies I love” and “have provided armament for bearded attacks adjoin the FBI, an academy I adulation acutely and accept served proudly for added than 20 years.”
As he assured the remarks, he took a attempt at Republicans who accept agonizingly criticized him, adage they were allowance Russian Admiral Vladimir Putin.
“I accept we are active in a political era in which blame and allegation generally asphyxiate out bluntness and integrity,” Strzok said.

7:30 p.m. – Strzok explains ‘insurance policy’ argument
In a abatement from the mudslinging that has abundantly authentic the hearing, Strzok took a moment to explain the acceptation of a decidedly awkward argument he beatific Lisa Page that has arise beneath analysis from those beyond the political spectrum.
The argument refers to an “insurance policy,” but lacks the ambience all-important to accept its acceptation – authoritative it abundant arena for partisans on both abandon of the aisle.
“I appetite to accept the aisle you threw out for application in Andy’s office” – the argument reads, apropos to then-FBI Abettor Administrator Andrew McCabe – “that there’s no way he gets elected,” – apropos to Trump – “But I’m abashed we can’t booty that risk.

“The ‘insurance policy’ argument that has arise up afore – that argument represented a agitation on admonition we had accustomed from an abnormally acute antecedent and method,” Strzok said, activity on to call how one band of the FBI advocated a abstinent access to investigating accessible Russian collusion.
“Some bodies said, ‘hey, look, every poll is adage applicant Trump is acceptable not to win,’” Strzok said. “Some bodies said, ‘as a aftereffect of that, let’s not accident that source.’”
