Things got heated today at the hearing for FBI agent Peter Strzok, as Congress questioned him about text messages he sent to colleague Lisa Page ahead of the 2016 election. In those text messages, he expressed a pretty solid dislike for then-candidate Donald Trump as well as those who supported him.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican, asked Strzok to explain the things he said about his Trump-supporting constituents. Among his questions- “What does Trump support smell like?” and if he meant it when he said that a certain county was full of “ignorant hillbillies.”

Tomorrow, the woman on the other side of this text message conversation, Lisa Page, will testify. The fireworks continue!
