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.
And in the transcript that Collins has released, Page addresses the FBI's investigations of the 2016 Trump campaign's suspected Russian Federation connections as well as the 2016 Hillary Clinton e-mail controversy.
Page, who served as a special counsel to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, has been criticized by Republicans for exchanging texts with Peter Strzok (a former FBI counterintelligence official) that were critical of Trump.
In one text on August 8, 2016, Strzok told Page that "we'll stop" Trump from becoming president.
Peter Strzok told Congress in 2018 that he deleted communications with Lisa Page, but he claimed he did so for "personal" reasons. Strzok was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team in August 2017 following the discovery of the texts and was later fired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

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.
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 also said Comey initially concluded Clinton had shown "gross negligence" in how she handled classified information - a finding that could lead to charges - but dialed that back to "extreme carelessness" by the time he finished his memo.
Facts first: Trump's claims about the Justice Department and Clinton email investigation are not supported by Page's recent testimony or the conclusions reached by independent investigators. He said under oath the FBI investigative team unanimously believed Clinton shouldn't be prosecuted.
The messages showed that Strzok and Page exchanged disparaging remarks about President Donald Trump.
Page went on to suggest that the Obama-era Justice Department urged them away from that idea, saying charging Clinton on that statute was "constitutionally vague and not sustainable".
