Congressman Suggests Giving Purple Heart To Anti-Trump Peter Strzok

Vandana Rambaran on July 12, 2018

A Congressman from Tennessee praised FBI agent Peter Strzok during his appearance in front of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Thursday and told him he deserved a purple heart medal.

“If I could give you a purple heart I would. You deserve one. This has been an attack on you and a way to attack Mr. Mueller and the investigation,” said Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen on Thursday.

Strzok was questioned by the House Judiciary committee about his anti-Trump behavior and text messages that may have expressed bias during multiple investigations he was involved in before and after the 2016 election. Cohen equated Strzok’s behavior to that deserving of members of the U.S. armed forces who have been wounded in combat, or to families who have died in service.

Cohen proceeded to bash Fox News as well, insinuating that the entire hearing involving Strzok and his potential bias during the  investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election was a ploy to appease and entertain Fox News viewers.

“It was a never ending television show from Congress that got nowhere except trying to influence the people that watch Fox News, Cohen said. “That’s what this is about and this is unfortunate and as they say, you can put lipstick on a pig but this is nothing but a ruse to try to get to the Mueller investigation to make people think that its baseless.”

  • If I could, Mr Cohen, I would give you a purple shaft. You are a disgusting, chicken-hearted, little piss-ant who has no idea what the purple heart is given for and what it means to the recipient. You should be shunned by the entire house of representatives for your sleazy, insipid behavior.,

  • What a disgusting thing to say. How insulting to the men and women, dead and alive, who have earned the Purple Heart. This simply follows the eight years Obama spent hating the military and the military families. What a piece of sheet. Cohen should be dropped into a Marine Boot Camp and make this same statement to the Drill Instructors.

    • Out of his mouth he proves how little respect he has for the military. Which explains why the democrats have, for decades, not been supportive of the military

  • That Purple Heart statement just proves how ignorant Democrat Senators are. Not to mention offering a Purple Heart to a traitor and a liar, is offensive to those who earned the Hearts in combat. Democrats, are truly the 21st Century's most pathetic and superficial entity.

  • I watched enough of the man's little grin and smirk to come away with a healthy dislike for him. A 'Purple Heart'? He deserves to be shown the exit as quickly as possible.

  • Democrat Party has a new policy to win the 2018 election and that is to drive every legal American voter from voting for the Democrat Party with their crazy, insane and nuts policies and replace them with illegal aliens as illegal voters with massive voter fraud in hopes to win the 2018 election!! It is going to fail because all of those rejected voters including millions of Demcorat #/WalkAway voters are going to Republican Party in a landslide RED WAVE VICTORY!!! You lose Democrats!!!....

  • TO SOLVE AMERICAS PROBLEMS MAKE THIS CHOICE WE THE PEOPLE' HAVE THE POWER OF OUR VOICES AND OUR VOTES, TO VOTE OUT THE ENTIRE LYING,CORRUPT, TREASONOUS DEMOCRAT PARTY COME NOV 2018, VOTE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO END ALL CORRUPTIONS IN WASHINGTON GOVERNMENT

  • OK Cohen, do as Gowdy told him yesterday, put your evidence before a grand jury and see what they have to say. If you are not will to do that, then you have zero evidence.

    Otherwise, put up or shut the hell up.

  • typical jackass congressman trying to score points politically ...and of course insults real HEROES ... the dumb SOB was there simply to disrupt the hearing .... as usual for dumbocraps. Not one of them was there for the truth.. the dems were there simply to disrupt and cover their asses in any way they could...
