Fact-checking Trump's tweets on Lisa Page testimony

"And, we're going to say, we're going to get this out and we're going to put it in ways that people can easily understand, not a large dump, we're going to take it methodically as we go, as we get them cleared, and we're going to get them out to the American people". In the past week, Collins has released transcripts of similar interviews with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom Strzok exchanged anti-Trump text messages during the 2016 election and investigations into his campaign.

"Investigate alleged misconduct around the handling of the Clinton email investigation", he demanded, and "Investigate the abuse of the FISA warrant process against Mr. Carter Page".

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director has explained at length why he did not believe there was a substantive case to be made against Clinton for her handling of classified information.

"I can tell you that in no way would that extramarital affair have any power in coercing me to do anything other than obeying the law and doing honest, competent investigation", Strzok said.

Strzok waged a similar defense during a contentious public hearing in July of previous year.

In contrast, when we look into what could have (and perhaps should have) been the investigation into possible collusion between Hillary Clinton's campaign and Barack Obama's Justice Department to cover up Clinton's misdeeds, we get mere droplets of information generally reported only by conservative-leaning outlets. The top Republican on the Judiciary panel, Rep. Doug Collins, released a transcript of the interview Thursday as part of an ongoing effort to paint the early days of the Russian Federation investigation as tainted by law enforcement bias.

Asked in general terms whether he had "ever been part of the FBI's efforts to infiltrate a US political campaign" or "been part of an effort to put a spy in a USA political campaign", Strzok said no. "And equally, if they aren't guilty of anything, that's also important", Strzok said.

This entire investigation into Clinton was sparked by the fact that she had used a private email server during her time serving as secretary of state. McCabe has said he could not recall such a meeting taking place.
