The day-long grilling of FBI agent Peter Strzok finally exploded into recriminations towards the conclusion, after hearing Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) continued to let Republicans couch their questions as statements attacking the FBI man so that he wasn’t allowed to respond.
Throughout the day, Strzok was told he could respond to accusations made by Republicans only if they posed their words in the form of a question. From that point forward, his interrogators would launch vicious attacks on him, including overtly lying, but without asking him to respond.
Late in the day, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) made demonstrably false statements from the Inspector General’s report on Strzok all the way up to the end of his time, before yielding back to the chair.
When Strzok attempted to respond, Goodlatte shot him down leading to an off-camera shouting match between a Democratic congresswoman and the hearing head, with shouts of “You’re out of order!” to which she responded, “Mr. Chairman, you have said throughout this hearing that at the conclusion of the questioning, the witness would be permitted to respond.”
Biggs then turned in his seat and snarled at the woman, “You’re out of order,” to which she responded “No, you’re out of order. And you have been out of order all day!”
The shouting continued for a period of time, before Goodlatte gavelled everyone into silence.

‘Everyone knows what to expect’ at Trump’s Amway Center re-election kickoff
Donald Trump considers himself a legendary salesman, but can he really sell America on giving him four more drama-filled years at the White House?
Tuesday, he'll make his big pitch.
The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the "historic" event "has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests."
There's little mystery about how the night will go down.
Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.
Florida man’s own family blasts him after he was arrested for racist threats: ‘This isn’t how we were raised’
After a Florida man was arrested for trying to start a race war, a member of his own family slammed his values.
"A Florida man’s social media posts that threatened violence against African-Americans, Jews and homosexuals and that urged his followers to start a race war netted him a $1 million bond," the Miami Herald reported Saturday. "And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."
Joshua Leff, 40, is being held in the Lee County Jail.
