This, by far, is not the most explosive thing to come out of today’s hearing with Peter Strzok, but it really is worth a look to see just where the guy’s head was at while he was supposedly doing his job without bias.

Among the texts between Strzok and Lisa Page was one about the failed state Senate bid of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe, a Democrat. Strzok attributed McCabe’s loss to the “ignorant hillbillies” who populate Loudon County, Virginia.

Soon after the texts were released, Loudoun Co. Supervisor Ron Meyer went to Twitter to correct the record:

At Thursday’s hearing, though, Strzok was given a chance to clarify his remarks.

Oh, so it was just some good-natured trash-talking of a rival county.

Now we’re waiting for him to explain how texting that Donald Trump is a “loathsome human” and an “idiot” and that Hillary Clinton should win by a margin of “100,000,000 – 0” was just friendly ribbing.
