Dem Rep Raskin Defends Strzok with Bizarre Question: Is Bruce Springsteen Part of the ‘Deep State Conspiracy’?
RASKIN: "They say, Mr. Strzok, you’re at the heart of a deep state conspiracy to oppose Donald Trump. To make this claim, they have to ignore the fact that you’re an equal opportunity insulter. You called Bernie Sanders and idiot. Hillary Clinton and martin O’Malley that you called a freak show. There’s a First Amendment here in America. You can still insult government officials without being thrown into jail or held in contempt of Congress by our side of the aisle. There’s no kings here and we have freedom of speech. The right that is cherished by the people and feared by tyrants. There’s a couple of facts they can’t get around. Number 1, the I.G. Found no bias affecting the official investigation. Number 2, attorney general sessions is a Republican appointed by Donald Trump. Rod Rosenstein is a Republican appointed by Donald Trump. James Comey is a Republican appointed by Donald Trump. Director WRAY is a Republican appointed by trump and Robert Mueller is a life-long Republican. All I can find are statements that you’ve have been arraigned on today. I want to ask you about the statements. In the spring of 2016, senator Ted Cruz called Donald Trump a coward, a pathological liar and a serial flanderer. Is this attack on trump by senator Cruz a part of a deep state conspiracy that you organized?"
