Donald Trump Jr. roasted FBI agent Peter Strzok in a tweet on Friday, calling the disgraced bureaucrat the “creepiest person in America.”
Trump Jr. tweeted: “This guy has to be the creepiest person in America. OMG.” Trump Jr. included a GIF video of Strzok.
Strzok testified before members of two House committees on Thursday, where he defiantly proclaimed that his text exchanges with FBI attorney Lisa Page showed no evidence of bias that would have any bearing on his participation in probes of Hillary Clinton’s email practices as Secretary of State and supposed Russian influence in then-candidate Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016. However, Strzok was dismissed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation after the Inspector General of the Department of Justice revealed the texts.

During his testimony before Congress, Strzok was emphatic in his rebuttals of questions from Republican members of the committees, while making gestures and facial expressions that drew attention from viewers and pundits.
Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy and Strzok had a tense exchange during the hearing. Strzok asserted that he was not dismissed from Mueller’s probe because of actual bias, but because of the “appearance” of bias. “I’m stating to you it is not my understanding that he kicked me off because of any bias — that it was done based on the appearance. If you want to represent what you said accurately I’m happy to answer that question, but I don’t appreciate what was originally said being changed,” Strzok said.
Gowdy retorted, “I don’t give a damn what you appreciate, Agent Strzok. I don’t appreciate having an FBI agent with an unprecedented level of animus working on two major investigations during 2016.”
