Peter Strzok clearly said in his text messages that he intended to “stop” the Trump presidency and worse. Yet Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee said that he wished he could give him a Purple Heart. What an insult to members of our military.

Dem Rep to Peter Strzok: ‘If I Could Give You a Purple Heart I Would’
Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen (Tenn.) said Thursday that he would give embattled FBI agent Peter Strzok a Purple Heart if he could.
“I don’t know where to start,” Cohen told Strzok to begin his questioning at a House Government Oversight Committee hearing. “If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would. You deserve one.”
Cohen’s praise came after Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz revealed in a report last month that Strzok, who oversaw the opening of the Russia investigation and the probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, sent text messages to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he had an extramarital affair, saying “we’ll stop” Donald Trump from becoming president. Horowitz told lawmakers after the report’s release that he is not confident that Strzok was unbiased during the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s emails.
