President Donald Trump aimed several tweets at disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok after he appeared on Capitol Hill Wednesday to testify behind closed doors.

Strzok answered lawmakers’ questions behind doors for several hours Wednesday. Trump’s tweets, however, indicate he believes Stzrok refused to answer certain questions. Strzok was heavily criticized in a recent DOJ inspector general’s report for carrying on an affair with another FBI employee and texting her “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming president.

Strzok was involved at the highest levels of the Clinton email investigation, the 2016 investigation into the Trump campaign, and even joined the Mueller investigation for a short time before his relationship was discovered.
