Fact-checking Trump's tweets on Lisa Page testimony

In the past week, Collins has released transcripts of similar interviews with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom Strzok exchanged anti-Trump text messages during the 2016 election and investigations into his campaign.

In the transcript, Strzok said the debate over how aggressively to investigate the campaign explained the backstory of a cryptic August 15, 2016, text message he sent Page that has long attracted Republican attention.

Page, who came to prominence over anti-Trump texts she exchanged with former FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok while both were assigned to the Clinton and Trump investigations, stressed that senior bureau officials were also expressing anti-Clinton animus - but that neither affected how agents working those cases carried out their jobs.

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 past year, according to transcripts released Thursday.

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

Page and Strzok had been engaged in an affair during the time the Mueller probe was launched.

Ramzan Ali, who was inside the Al Noor mosque during the shooting, said he was the last man to come out of the mosque. Daily Mail Australia understands Tarrant grew up in Grafton, New South Wales, where much of his family still lives.

Rep. Doug Collins, Georgia Republican, inserted the transcripts into the Congressional Record during a floor speech, defying a Justice Department that he felt was moving too slowly to clear the information for public consumption.

President Trump called out Justice Department over its possible mishandling of the email investigation in a tweet Wednesday.

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

Strzok also alleged that, once the Federal Bureau of Investigation got its hands on Clinton's private email servers, it was only allowed to search them with the consent of Clinton's legal team.

Then-FBI Director James Comey announced in a July 2016 press conference that while Clinton, then the Democrat presidential nominee, had been "extremely careless" in handling classified information, "no reasonable prosecutor" would attempt to bring a case against her.

"And so that's not sort of taken with respect to the, you know, feelings about Donald Trump", she told the committee. "And that's, as I said, the advice that we got from the Department was that they did not think - that it was constitutionally vague and not sustainable". McCabe has said he could not recall such a meeting taking place.
