Georgia Rep. Doug Collins on Tuesday released 370 pages of transcripts of congressional testimony given last October by Lisa Page, the former FBI attorney who exchanged anti-Trump text messages with her lover, Peter Strzok.
Collins, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, published links to the transcripts on his congressional website. On Friday, Collins published a transcript of testimony from Bruce Ohr, the Justice Department official who served as a back channel between the FBI and former British spy Christopher Steele during the bureau’s Trump-Russia probe.
Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, worked as a contractor for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm hired by Democrats to investigate Donald Trump.
Page left the FBI on May 4, 2018, amid a brewing scandal over her text messages with Strzok, the former deputy chief of the FBI’s counterintelligence division. Page and Strzok were part of a small group at the FBI that worked on “Crossfire Hurricane,” the code name for the bureau’s counterintelligence probe of the Trump campaign.
The investigation was started on July 31, 2016.
Many of the details of Page’s testimony have been publicized.
She told lawmakers that in May 2017, she was told by her boss, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein brought up the idea of wearing a wire in meetings with President Trump.
