Texas Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert sparked outrage among a slew of Democrats in the joint House hearing featuring embattled FBI Agent Peter Strzok.

Gohmert, of Tyler, ripped into Strzok over his apparent bias in regard to the handling of the Clinton email investigation and Trump-Russia probe.

Gohmert said Inspector General Michael Horowitz delineated "500 pages of bias" from Strzok and others, and then "threw a bone to the Democrats" by declaring that there was no inherent bias that affected the outcome of the Clinton investigation.

"When you have text messages, Mr. Strzok, the way you do, saying the things you did it'd been better off [if you began your testimony] saying 'look, it was my bias'," Gohmert said, adding that Strzok definitively lied "with a straight face."

Shortly thereafter, Rhode Island Democratic Rep. David Cicilline shouted that a "point of order" was necessary, and demanded Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) force Gohmert to retract his accusations against Strzok.

"No, this is my time," Gohmert said angrily to Cicilline. Cicilline interrupted, saying that Gohmert "asserted" that a witness (Strzok) lied and again demanded he withdraw his accusation.

"I do not withdraw," Gohmert called to Cicilline. "You have been expressing bias through your members' [claims] about what a hero [Strzok] is."

Gohmert then ripped Strzok for smirking and sternly told Strzok that he embarrassed the FBI and himself. 

He asked Strzok if he used that same smirk to "look into your wife's eye and lie to her about Lisa Page," referring to the former FBI lawyer with whom Strzok had an affair.

Text messages between the two, including many in which Trump supporters were derided, were the subject of much debate during the hearing.

With that question from Gohmert, several Democrats shouted and expressed outrage at Gohmert for bringing up the fact Strzok cheated on his wife.

New Jersey Democratic Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Trenton) shouted that Gohmert "needs to take [his] medication."

"This is outrageous," Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) shouted.

"Shame on you," a female Democrat said to Gohmert.

When the din subsided, New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan) told Goodlatte that Gohmert broke House rules by "impugning the character of a witness."

Goodlatte said Nadler was incorrect because that witness was neither a lawmaker nor the president of the United States.

Strzok blasted Gohmert in his response, saying that his remark about "the look I would engage in with a family member who I have acknowledged hurting goes more to a discussion about your character and what you stand for."
