Republican Georgia Rep. Doug Collins on Thursday released a transcript of former FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok’s congressional testimony from June 2018.
This is the third transcript of testimony Collins released within the past week. Collins released Justice Department official Bruce Ohr’s testimony March 8. He released two days’ of testimony Tuesday given by Lisa Page, a former FBI lawyer who exchanged anti-Trump text messages with Strzok.

Strzok was fired from the FBI on Aug. 13, 2018, over the texts, many of which showed he and Page disparaging then-candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign.
Lisa Page texted Peter Strzok saying "maybe you're meant to stay where you are because you're meant to protect the country from that menace."

Strzok served as the lead investigator on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and “Crossfire Hurricane,” the counterintelligence investigation into whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russia.
