The son of House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) blasted his father on Twitter following the firing of former FBI agent Peter Strzok.

Strzok was still employed by the bureau until his termination last Friday.

He was an integral part of the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the start of what would later become Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.

Bobby Goodlatte tweeted that he's embarrassmed of his father's "grandstanding" during last month's hearing, and that it "ruined" Strzok's career.

The elder Goodlatte grilled Strzok during the July 12 hearing after Strzok was subpoenaed to testify over anti-Trump texts he sent to Lisa Page, his former co-worker and lover, using his FBI phone.

The hearing became contentious, as Republican lawmakers pressed the embattled FBI agent about the Russia probe and supposed bias against the president.

Bobby Goodlatte also tweeted on Sunday that he's raising money for the Democrat vying for his father's congressional seat, Jennifer Lewis.

He added that this year is the year to "flip districts."
