Disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok testified before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees that his infamous “we will stop it” text message was driven, in part, by then-candidate Donald Trump’s criticism of Muslim Gold Star father Khizr Khan.
The instance to which Strzok was referring was of then-candidate Trump and Gold Star father Khizr Khan, a Hillary Clinton supporter, trading barbs during the 2016 election.
Honoring his son, Khizr Khan pulled a copy of the Constitution out of his suit pocket and offered to lend it to Trump.
“Go look at the graves of brave Americans who died defending United States of America.
“I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures.
Peter Strzok: "'We will stop it.' You need to understand that that was written late at night off the cuff and it was in response to a series of events that included then-candidate Trump insulting the immigrant family of a fallen war hero." pic.twitter.com/sF9fSDaKDt
