Peter Strzok transcript, testimony from last year.
The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday released a transcript of former FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok’s closed-door testimony from last year.
Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) said he released the transcript so the American people could read through his testimony themselves, with minimal redactions.
The interview focuses largely on Strzok’s decisionmaking during the 2016 election while he served at the FBI.
He became a flashpoint among Republicans after text messages surfaced in which he made derogatory comments about President Trump and other political figures. GOP lawmakers said it calls into question his role on the Hillary Clinton email investigation, as well as his short-lived time working with special counsel Robert Mueller. He was removed from Mueller’s team shortly after news of the text messages surfaced.
He had sent the text messages to then-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was having an extramarital affair at the time. Collins released Page’s testimony before the committee earlier this week.
