Former NYPD Commissioner Calls for Obstruction Investigation into Clinton Email Probe

Page's statement "makes former US attorney general Loretta Lynch look blatantly dishonest", says the Washington Examiner's Quin Hillyer.

"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.

House Republicans have released the transcript of a closed-door interview of disgraced and fired former FBI official Peter Strzok, who acted as a point man for both the FBI's Hillary Clinton email server investigation and its Trump-Russia probe. Days later, Clinton was let off for repeatedly mishandling top secret, classified information.

"If there are members of the Trump campaign who are actively illegally colluding with the government of Russian Federation, that's something the American people need to know, that's something candidate Trump potentially needs to know".

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

"If there's an allegation, he, of all people, but everybody would want to know: if this is going on in my campaign I want you to tell me about it", Strzok said.

Wolves are seventh in the top flight and in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, surpassing most fans' expectations for the season. Arsenal have now taken ten points from the available 15 from the big teams.

Both Page and Strzok no longer work at the FBI - Page resigned and Strzok was sacked.

In the transcript, Page asserted, "Many of us in law enforcement dislike the subject of our investigations".

Graham also told Fox News on Wednesday that he also wanted a special counsel to investigate "potential crimes" by officials in the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation. 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.

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.

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.
