(CNSNews.com) - FBI Agent Peter Strzok helped President Trump become president of the United States by failing to let the public know his campaign was under FBI investigation, Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.) fumed at Thursday's hearing.

"I just need to say in closing, if anybody should be pissed at the FBI, because you helped this unfit man become president of the United States by not revealing to the people that he was under investigation in his campaign, it should be me," Coleman said.

"They (Republicans) should applauding you, kissing you, and giving you all awards, because but for you, we would have had a legitimate president elected."

In his opening statement to the committee, Strzok insisted there was no evidence of bias in his professional actions -- but he said there was evidence supporting his integrity:

"In the summer of 2016, I was one of a handful of people who knew the details of Russian election interference and its possible connections with members of the Trump campaign. This information had the potential to derail, and quite possibly, defeat Mr. Trump. But the thought of expressing that, or exposing that information never crossed my mind," he told the committee.

During the hearing, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) asked Strzok to explain the FBI's policy about commenting publicly on an ongoing criminal investigation.

"We don't do that," Strzok said.
