Dems Try to Scuttle Hearing After Strzok Refuses to Answer Questions

Congressional Democrats tried to prematurely adjourn a hearing with FBI agent Peter Strzok after Republicans demanded that the agent answer questions.

“Will you answer the committee’s question as directed, or do you refuse to answer the committee’s question?” Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) asked Strzok. The FBI agent was refusing to answer questions from Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC).

At Goodlatte’s inquiry, a number of Democrats cried out, calling for various parliamentary measures.

The chairman explained that questioning time still belonged to Gowdy, and he would return after demanding that Strzok answer the committee’s questions.

“Mr. Chairman, I move to adjourn,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) interrupted, trying to prevent further questioning of the FBI agent. Another Democrat seconded the motion.

Goodlatte shot the motion down and moved back to Gowdy.
