It turns out Hillary Clinton and Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who exhibited anti-Trump language in a collection of text messages and who participated in the Hillary Clinton and the Trump-Russia investigations, have something in common besides their hatred of Trump.
As James Woods pointed out over social media, the two have a similar writhe. The actor shared a gif of the two individuals wiggling their shoulder back-and-forth in a similar fashion.
Like how birds of a feather fly together, Woods compared them both to snakes and said they “writhe alike.”

The funny, albeit creepy comparison, was echoed by some people online:

This level of arrogance makes me sick…public servants believing they are above the law.

In the heated and nearly explosive congressional hearing, Strzok was forced to address mounting evidence that he was biased during his time serving at the FBI and was repeatedly asked whether this bias found its way into affecting his investigations.
Here were some takeaways, per CBS News:
In an explosive, hourslong congressional hearing Thursday, FBI agent Peter Strzok was defiant as Republicans unleashed blistering attacks, saying his anti-Trump sentiment — captured in personal text messages — is evidence of bias at the Justice Department.
Finally able to defend himself after months of angry criticism from President Donald Trump and Republicans, Strzok was mostly unapologetic.
He defended himself forcefully and doubled down on some of his most controversial comments in the texts, which he exchanged with FBI lawyer Lisa Page during the presidential campaign. Strzok and Page were having an extramarital affair at the time.
On Thursday, Republicans disputed his contention that he wasn’t biased and that his views didn’t affect the investigation. One lawmaker said he was lying and another said he didn’t believe him.
Strzok expressed little regret for the most controversial text exchange with Page. In the text, Page says Mr. Trump is “not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”
Strzok replied that he won’t. “We’ll stop it,” he said.
On Thursday, Strzok said the message was written late at night after Mr. Trump’s campaign comments disparaging a slain U.S. soldier.
90-minute takeway from Strzok hearing: Democrats have forged new strategy for shutting down oversight. Interrupt, call points of order, argue over points of order, demand recorded votes, eat up time, protect the witness. Hope Republicans are taking notes.

While Strzok did apologize for exhibiting anti-Trump language in his text messages and for how the subsequent publicity has personally affected his family, he refused to admit that he did nothing wrong in a professional capacity.
The hearing has a particularly red-hot moment when Congressman and House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy addressed Strzok. Watch:
Woods was not the only one to point out Strzok’s odd gesture:

I am no longer predicting a blue wave. The Democrats are losing their minds and have no focus, and the far left is sabotaging them.
If you’re a Democrat who disagrees, set up a charity wager. pic.twitter.com/S1bAUPS8qf
