The transcripts reveal the context of Page's texts to Strzok, including the idea of having an "insurance policy" in the case of his election.

And in the transcript that Collins has released, Page addresses the FBI's investigations of the 2016 Trump campaign's suspected Russian Federation connections as well as the 2016 Hillary Clinton e-mail controversy.

"I am aware of senior Federal Bureau of Investigation officials talking to subordinate Federal Bureau of Investigation officials on the Hillary Clinton investigative team who unquestionably had anti-Hillary sentiment, but who also said: 'You have to get her, or - again I don't have an exact quote - but like we're counting on you, you know, '" Page testified.

"Included in the transcripts provided to us is information suggesting Brennan was aware of the so-called Steele dossier in early August 2016, and that he included information regarding the dossier in a briefing given to then-Sen".

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.

The comments were made during a closed-door interview in June 2018 with the House Judiciary Committee.

"No he won't. We'll stop it", Strzok replied.

But Page's testimony was perhaps the most salient evidence yet that the Justice Department improperly interfered with the FBI's supposedly independent conclusions on Clinton's criminal culpability, Ratcliffe alleged.

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

"And so that's not sort of taken with respect to the, you know, feelings about Donald Trump", she told the committee.

In a statement Thursday, Strzok attorney Aitan Goelman said his client welcomed the release of the transcript.

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.

As deputy chief of FBI's counterintelligence division, Strzok oversaw the Trump-Russia investigation, dubbed Crossfire Hurricane.

"My answer "No" was my personal belief that I did not think he would be", the fired agent said, adding later, "My best sense looking at this text that I didn't recall until I read it very recently, was that "we" is my belief that the American people, there is no way that they're going to elect him".
