Rep. Paul Gosar Says He Reads Body Language Well Because I’m a Dentist

Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S., of Arizona, had one of the stranger moments of the lengthy and still ongoing testimony of FBI agent Peter Strzok on Thursday, when he prefaced a question by saying, “I’m a dentist, Okay. So I read body language very, very well.”

Strzok, who sent anti-Trump text messages to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who he was having an affair with, while they were both working on investigations into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and into Hillary Clinton’s emails, appeared to smirk as Gosar asked the question. You can watch here:

Wow, they saved the stupidest part of the hearing for last. “I’m a dentist, Okay. So I read body language very, very well.”

Gosar, a Republican who represents Arizona’s Fourth District, said to Strzok, “This morning I watched, by the way I’m a dentist, so read body language, very, very well. And I watched your comment and actions with Mr. Gowdy. You got very angry in regards to the Gold Star family. That shows me it’s innately a part of you and a bias.”

Gosar was referencing an exchange Strzok had earlier in the day with Congressman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, who is the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, the panel whose GOP members have spent most of the day Thursday grilling Strzok about his role in the Russia investigation, including special counsel Robert’s Mueller’s probe. Strzok has said that he sent angry messages about Trump after the future president’s comments about Gold Star parents Khizr and Ghazala Khan at the Republican convention.

Strzok responded to Gosar, “Sir, I disagree. I don’t know if you are saying that this experience is like being at the dentist, if that’s what you’re suggesting…I would tell you sir, what you see in my response is a general response for the United States of America. What you see is a passion as a patriot. What you see is a general anger in people turning that upside down.”
