CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer called embattled FBI agent Peter Strzok’s anti-Trump texts “so damning” on Thursday.


Strzok testified about his alleged bias in front of the House Judiciary and Government Oversight Committees on Thursday and asserted that while he is not a fan of Trump, his political views never impacted his work at the FBI.

In one text with his colleague and mistress Lisa Page, Strzok promised that “we’ll stop” the Trump presidency.

“The texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they are so damning,” Blitzer said on his show during a hearing recess.

“They are, Wolf,” CNN political director David Chalian agreed. “When he says that those texts, ‘not indicative of bias,’ that’s just flat wrong on it’s face. It is indicative of bias.”

“When you look at the language of those texts it’s very easy to point to a bias that this FBI agent was expressing,” Chalian added.

Blitzer noted that Strzok will have a tough time making the case that his texts didn’t show bias when he was removed from the Russia investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller over the messages.
