Former NYPD Commissioner Calls for Obstruction Investigation into Clinton Email Probe

  • FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok testifies before a House Judiciary Committee joint hearing on

And in the transcript that Collins has released, Page addresses the FBI's investigations of the 2016 Trump campaign's suspected Russian Federation connections as well as the 2016 Hillary Clinton e-mail controversy.

Those text messages have made Strzok and Page particular targets of outrage from Republicans and from Trump.

In a statement Thursday, Strzok attorney Aitan Goelman said his client welcomed the release of the transcript. "It is further evidence that, contrary to the impression that the President's allies in Congress tried to create with their selective and often inaccurate leaks, Pete at all times discharged his duties honorably, patriotically, and without regard to his personal political opinions". But Page, in her testimony, said that in fact, the FBI did investigate in order to determine if such a charge against Clinton was warranted-and ultimately decided that such a charge would be "constitutionally vague" and that federal law enforcement "did not feel that they could sustain a charge".

FBI officials, including then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, debated internally how vigorously to follow up on that information given that Democrat Hillary Clinton was seen at the time as likely to defeat Trump, and an aggressive investigation had the potential of endangering the source. Strzok said he made the counterargument, that if Trump won and people alleged to be involved in nefarious activity were put in national security positions, "we might need to protect America by finding out whether these allegations are accurate or not and making sure that the government, President Trump in that case, was making special - or appropriate decisions". "So let me if I can, I know I'm testing your memory".

Strzok waged a similar defense during a contentious public hearing in July of past year. But Page, in 2018, told House lawmakers that whatever she had to say about Trump or Clinton in the past, it didn't affect the quality of investigations. "That's important", Page said. "And equally, if they aren't guilty of anything, that's also important", Strzok said.

Former FBI attorney Lisa Page told congressional investigators past year that Peter Strzok - a senior FBI agent in the probes into the Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump campaigns - joined special counsel Robert Mueller's team because if it resulted in impeachment it could be good for his career.

Asked in general terms whether he had "ever been part of the FBI's efforts to infiltrate a USA political campaign" or "been part of an effort to put a spy in a US political campaign", Strzok said no.

Both Page and Strzok no longer work at the FBI - Page resigned and Strzok was sacked.

He said he didn't recall specifically writing it, but says he now thinks the "we" he was talking about was the country at large.
