"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".

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page said past 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 just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine", Trump tweeted. That the Department of Justice reopens investigations into Hillary Clinton's emails and Carter Page's FISA warrant.

"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.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) blocked a bill that would release the report from special counsel Robert Mueller to the public, and said that he would only support it with provisions for further investigations to be opened. Both interviews took place last summer.

According to Strzok, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was unable to access any emails regarding the Clinton Foundation because of a deal "negotiated between the Department of Justice attorneys and counsel for Clinton". Collins said on the House floor Thursday that he meant to release additional transcripts from that GOP-led probe in the weeks ahead, in the name of transparency.

The Strzok testimony, which is from June 2018, is creating a buzz on social media and appears to offer more insight into the FBI's activities during the 2016 presidential election season.

However, the transcripts released on Thursday show that Strzok told the committee Mueller never asked him if the sentiment reflected in that text had any influence on decisions made during the Trump-Russia probe.

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.
