GOP lawmaker's son blasts father's role in Strzok saga, wants to flip his seat

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The son of a prominent House Republican blasted his father's role in the saga leading up to FBI agent Peter Strzok's ouster, less than a day after he announced that he was supporting the Democratic candidate to succeed his father.



"I'm deeply embarrassed that Peter Strzok's career was ruined by my father's political grandstanding. That committee hearing was a low point for Congress," Bobby Goodlatte, the son of House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, tweeted Monday. "Thank you for your service sir. You are a patriot."

The FBI deputy director ordered Strzok's termination on Friday, his attorney revealed Monday. The embattled agent had been removed from the special counsel probe into Russian interference last year for sending anti-Donald Trump text messages. Strzok testified before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees in a fiery, nearly 10-hour-long hearing in July.



On Sunday, Bobby Goodlatte voiced his support for the Democrat running for his father's seat and encouraged others to do the same.




"I just gave the maximum allowed donation to Jennifer Lewis, a democrat running for my father's congressional seat," Bobby Goodlatte wrote on Twitter. "I've also gotten 5 other folks to commit to donate the max. 2018 is the year to flip districts --- let's do this!"



Rep. Bob Goodlatte has represented Virginia's 6th Congressional District since 1993. He announced in November 2017 that he would not seek re-election.



Bobby Goodlatte did not immediately provide any explanation for his support for Lewis, and multiple requests for additional comment were not immediately returned Monday. Rep. Goodlatte's office and Lewis' campaign also did not immediately respond.



Lewis is "a mental health worker, community advocate, and leader in the fight against the Atlantic Coast Pipeline," according to her campaign website. She is running against Ben Cline, a Republican Virginia state delegate, for Goodlatte's vacant seat. CNN rates the race as Solid Republican.




Replying to a comment on Twitter about his support of Lewis, Bobby Goodlatte wrote, that it "(certainly) wasn't an easy decision."



"Has been so moving to have friends back me up on this one," he wrote in a separate comment. "Let's flip the 6th."

The guy trashes his own father. Dad must be a Trumpster, lol.

If the Democrats retake the House in November, expect hearings into FBI personnel who have operated a cabal against Hillary Clinton. In other words, Rudy Giuliani's friends at the Bureau.

The only problem with this story is that the father wasn't seeking re-election so how much of a stretch was it for the son to back the other side when there will be no repercussions.  I wouldn't be surprised if he plans on running down the road once he figures out which way the wind is blowing and I wouldn't be shocked if he got his father's blessing beforehand.   You can't trust republicans.  They're wily.

Strozk's "crime" is that he embarrassed the FBI. part of that embarrassment was the public hearing that Goodlatte presided over. 

Maybe he would have been fired anyway, but Goodlatte's son says his dad was part of it , and that is what this seed is about.

Goodlatte had as much to do with his firing as you did.

I think any govt. official should be extremely careful voicing personal opinions, especially about people they are investigating, lest problems arise with people thinking the official is biased in some way.

F.B.I. Agent Peter Strzok, Who Criticized Trump in Texts ...
The New York Times
10 hours ago · Peter Strzok, a top F.B.I. counterintelligence agent who was taken off the special counsel investigation after his disparaging texts about President Trump were uncovered, was fired.

By Adam Goldman and Michael S. Schmidt
Aug. 13, 2018

1409
WASHINGTON — Peter Strzok, the F.B.I. senior counterintelligence agent who disparaged President Trump in inflammatory text messages and helped oversee the Hillary Clinton email and Russia investigations, has been fired for violating bureau policies, Mr. Strzok’s lawyer said Monday.

Now, if you don't believe Strzok's very own lawyer, what WILL you believe?

You forgot part of the story

Peter Strzok, the FBI counterintelligence agent who came under withering criticism from Republicans for a series of anti-Trump text messages he sent during the 2016 campaign, was fired on Friday, his attorney said.

According to Strzok's lawyer, Aitan Goelman, an internal disciplinary review had recommended Strzok's demotion and a 60-day suspension. But Goelman said Monday that the deputy director of the FBI overruled that determination and decided to fire him.

"The decision to fire Special Agent Strzok is not only a departure from typical Bureau practice, but also contradicts Director Wray’s testimony to Congress and his assurances that the FBI intended to follow its regular process in this and all personnel matters," Goelman said.

Why did they depart from typical Bureau practice?   Maybe because of the circus hearing in Goodlatte's committee.

Do you have any definition for the word "immediately" or do you simply rely on others for definitions?

First off, what did I deny or deflect from?

You merely speculated, so I decided I would, too.

Isn't this fun, just making stuff up like "Trump fired Strzok"?

I didn't speculate about anything. I copied and pasted a report on what Strzok's lawyer had said about why he was fired. The lawyer said the firing was contrary to FBI procedures.

I see you skimmed right over the same lawyer's statement that Strzok was fired for violations of bureau policies.

You provided absolutely no proof that Trump had Strzok fired.

So yes, your post was mere speculation.

I understand your predicament. It's not easy to defend a pathological liar every day. Sooner or later you run out of options and run out of ammunition. On the other hand, Trump defenders have made their own bed and by golly they are going to be forced to lie in it. 

You better start worrying about Omarosa. She released a tape overnight that shows Trump aides discussing how to spin his use of the n word, with one of them saying "he said it. he's embarrassed". 

Omarosa says that the actual tape of trump using the n word will be released prior to the election , as an October surprise. Since she obviously has some embarrassing tapes about trump, his supporters better take her seriously.

WTF does Omarosa have to do with this?

Deflecting? LMFAO!

I asked for proof that Trump had him fired.

You provided NOTHING.

I think it is safe to say we're done here, barring some miracle post with PROOF of what you claim.

I don't recall saying that Trump ordered Strzok fired. I said he was probably fired because of the hearing that Goodlatte presided over. It embarrassed the FBI.

 Why, no, no, they did NOT.

This is what I am talking about, deflect, deny, go in circles.  This is all you people do.

The committee itself did not fire Strzok, because no, they do not have the authority to do do. The hearing embarrassed the FBI, which is probably why the Deputy Director over rode FBI disciplinary procedures and recommendations and fired Strzok anyway. 

Last time I am explaining this to you.

8.1.37  Texan1211  replied to  JohnRussell @8.1.36    one month ago

Do you understand the difference between an order and a recommendation?

The FBI was more embarrassed by the actions of some of its employees than some hearing.

 
 
JohnRussell
8.1.38  JohnRussell  replied to  Texan1211 @8.1.37    one month ago

Well, that embarrassment had been known for some time, but he was only fired in the aftermath of the hearing. I do agree the embarrassment preceded the hearing but the hearing made it more public. 

If you want to die on the hill of believing the hearing had no effect, fine, I am tired of going in circles with you.

In many jobs, you can get fired for violating policies.

Happens every single day all over America, and I don't recall too much whining about the hundreds or thousands who have been fired for violating policy.

We need to get rid of most of the FBI and DOJ and all of the ATF. They are mostly a criminal enforcement arm of tyrannical government to control the US population.

they exist to intimidate and silence Americans

Fugitives mean criminals. Back in those days socialists/communists were criminals and fugitives from the law especially if they were fomenting revolution

He should have been fired.  Messaging "we will stop him" shows a bias beyond an opinion.  muchblike an officer of the law who has private messages talking ill of minorities... he can't be trusted to be unbiased in his duties.

My first statement I indicated that the far left is only 15% of the population. You posted laugh out load so I posted far left meaning  far left not democrats not progressives but far left are you keeping up so far.Then I posted look at the numbers that means go to google or any search engine and look up the numbers.Then I posted I may have been generous that means I think the number of far leftist is lower than the number I have seen before but gave said number the benefit of the doubt I hope this helps you understand what I posted.
