Transcripts released today by ranking House Judiciary Committee member Doug Collins (R-GA) reveal that disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok told Congress the Department of Justice did not consider Hillary Clinton a “target” of its investigation into her email scandal, according to the Washington Times.
Strzok told the Judiciary Committee behind-closed-doors in June, “She was not considered a target by the Justice Department.” Instead, investigators saw her as a “critical player,” however, Clinton was “not by any means the only person that we had an investigative interest in.”
The Times reports that the Strzok transcripts are somewhat at odds with his lover, Lisa Page’s transcripts, which were released on Tuesday:
In describing one text [Page] sent to Mr. Strzok in which she told him he was fated to be investigating Mr. Trump to save the country from a “menace,” she told the Judiciary Committee the menace was Mr. Trump himself.
Mr. Strzok also disputed the meaning of the now-infamous text exchange where Ms. Page worried Mr. Trump would become president and he replied “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.”
In the June 27, 2018, closed-door appearance with the Judiciary Committee he said he didn’t mean that he would stop Mr. Trump.
He said he didn’t recall specifically writing it, but says he now thinks the “we” he was talking about was the country at large.
