This is pretty unbelievable.
After Peter Strzok had refused to answer questions from Republican members of Congress repeatedly during his testimony before the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform Committees, Tennessee Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen told the disgraced FBI agent he thinks he deserves a Purple Heart for his performance.
What an insult to wounded service members:

I just heard a @HouseDemocrats say that #PeterStrzok deserves a Purple Heart for what he has gone through. How dare a sitting member of #Congress say such a thing to minimize the sacrifice that is made for that medal. #VA11 #PeterStrzokHearing

Rep Cohen (D-TN) would like to give Strzok a "Purple Heart." Disgraceful! I would like to give him a trial.

All due respect for Strzok's military service, but @RepCohen just literally spat on every Purple Heart winner in U.S. History.
Well done, Congressman!
