Former NYPD Commissioner Calls for Obstruction Investigation into Clinton Email Probe

  • FBI agent Peter Strzok testifies before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page said previous year on Capitol Hill that any bias in the FBI against Donald Trump did not impact the bureau's investigations of the Trump campaign's suspected Russian Federation ties and of Hillary Clinton's emails.

The agents were dismissed from Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigative team in 2017 after it was discovered they had exchanged anti-Trump texts.

Then-FBI official Peter Strzok testifies before House lawmakers in July.

Other parts of Page's testimony touch on her controversial text message conversations with her lover, Peter Strzok, about an "insurance policy" to use against Trump if he won the 2016 election.

Facts first: Trump's claims about the Justice Department and Clinton email investigation are not supported by Page's recent testimony or the conclusions reached by independent investigators.

Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, made a bold vow Tuesday to show the American people the extent of corruption within the Justice Department with its handling of the investigations involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Trump. "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".

In the transcript, Strzok said the debate over how aggressively to investigate the campaign explained the backstory of a cryptic August 15, 2016, text message he sent Page that has long attracted Republican attention. I mean, put aside who it is, put aside how we feel about it. The transcripts reveal the context of Page's texts to Strzok, including the idea of having an "insurance policy" in the case of his election.

Page provided a similar explanation during her own closed-door interview, saying how she had urged caution in the investigation because if Trump didn't win, there was less of a national security concern.

"And so that's not sort of taken with respect to the, you know, feelings about Donald Trump", she told the committee. "You know, that's monumental".

Strzok also said Comey initially concluded Clinton had shown "gross negligence" in how she handled classified information - a finding that could lead to charges - but dialed that back to "extreme carelessness" by the time he finished his memo. "He is making an analogy", Page said.
