Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) defended his very personal insults hurled at FBI agent Peter Strzok during his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee during his appearance on a Thursday’s segment of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“No, I didn’t go into it intending to do that, but as I sat there listening to him so smugly — his little smirk — and he lied repeatedly and he knew he was lying. He knew I knew he was lying — and yet, he still would lie,” Gohmert said when asked if he planned to attack Strzok for his infidelity.

“He was told by the intelligence community inspector general’s investigator Frank Rucker that they had found an anomaly in the emails going to and from Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized private server, and when they forensically examined the anomaly, they found embedded information,”  he continued in regard to a revelation from Strzok’s testimony.

“It was a foreign entity — not Russia, but a foreign entity — that was getting every single one of her over 30,000 emails,” Gohmert added.

Gohmert made headlines during the hearing for bringing up Strzok’s infidelity when he asked, “When I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eyes and lie to her about Lisa Page?” (RELATED: Louie Gohmert Puts Peter Strzok In A Body Bag Over Infidelity)
