The House Judiciary Committee has released extensive transcripts from Lisa Page's closed-door testimony before them a year ago, and its shedding some new light on how she defended the Federal Bureau of Investigation from accusations of pro-Hillary Clinton, anti-Donald Trump biases.

Peter Strzok (STRUCK) made the comments during a closed-door interview with House lawmakers past year.

"The just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine", Trump tweeted.

Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-Ga.) released the transcripts on Thursday.

Page explained that the "insurance policy" text message referred to the FBI investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign the Russian government.

Strzok, who played a leading role in the FBI's concurrent probes of Trump and Clinton, exchanged anti-Trump text messages with then-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom Strzok confirmed he was having an affair.

Hannity asked if Collins there would be accountability for the revelations released in the transcripts.

Aitan Goelman, Strzok's attorney, said in a statement Thursday: "Pete welcomes the release of the transcript of his closed-door testimony, which we have been calling for since he voluntarily testified last June".

Strzok insisted that he did not have an "insurance policy" to keep Trump from getting elected and noted how neither he nor anyone else at the FBI leaked details of the Trump campaign investigation even though such a disclosure would have been harmful to his election efforts.

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

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.

Strzok also noted he was not sure how often the FBI briefed retired personnel about closed cases - as they did in the Clinton email investigation in late October 2016. McCabe has said he could not recall such a meeting taking place. "And, we're going to say, we're going to get this out and we're going to put it in ways that people can easily understand, not a large dump, we're going to take it methodically as we go, as we get them cleared, and we're going to get them out to the American people".
