Peter Strzok told Congress in 2018 that he deleted communications with Lisa Page, but he claimed he did so for "personal" reasons.

Strzok was removed in 2017 from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team following the discovery of the messages with attorney Lisa Page.

Lynch said a team of career members of the Justice Department and FBI will present her with recommendations on how to proceed once the investigation has concluded and that she plans to accept the guidance.

"The president has been unfairly attacked from the moment he was elected in November 2016 on many fronts and now we're beginning just to see the vast scope of what most of us knew, that Ms. Clinton was treated completely differently than what we ended up seeing Trump being treated, and that's just wrong", Collins, R-Ga., said on "Hannity".

"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. Both interviews took place last summer.

Earlier in the transcript, Page confirms sending a text to Strzok related to their roles in investigating then-candidate Trump in August 2016, where she told Strzok, "Maybe you're meant to stay where you are because you're meant to protect the country from that menace".

It has not been a good stretch for the Los Angeles Lakers , but they were able to snap a five-game losing streak on Tuesday night. In July 2018, Ingram was hoping he would get invited to the Lakers training camp after the addition of LeBron James .

Trump's tweet comes after Congressman Doug Collins released 370 pages of Page's transcript testimony on his own volition, and promised that he would release even more in the future. The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Doug Collins, released an interview transcript Thursday as part of a GOP effort to paint the early days of the Russian Federation probe as tainted by law enforcement bias.

Collins made the announcement that the transcripts would be made available because "the Amerian people deserve transparency and deserve to know what transpired at the highest echelons of the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

Hillary Clinton was not a target, witness, subject or suspect during the investigation into her storage and sending of classified emails on her home server, fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok told Congress previous year, according to transcripts released Thursday.

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.

"Strzok also texted Page, "[expletive] Trump", and called him a "[expletive] idiot".

The Strzok-Page texts were discovered during an investigation of the FBI's handling of the Clinton email investigation.
