“I request the link www.dougcollins.house.gov/strzok be placed in the record so the American people can review the transcript of Peter Strzok’s interview.”

WASHINGTON – Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, made the following opening statement on the House floor releasing the transcript of Peter Strzok’s interviews by the Committee on the Judiciary, joint with the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Below are the remarks as prepared.

Rep. Doug Collins: Mr. Speaker, I have thus far released the interview transcripts of two of the individuals at the heart of the 2016 DOJ investigations controversy. Today, I am releasing a third.

As I have said before, I believe the American people deserve transparency, and deserve to know what transpired in the highest echelons of the FBI during that tumultuous time for the bureau.

Mr. Speaker, I request the link www.dougcollins.house.gov/strzok be placed in the record so the American people can review the transcript of Peter Strzok’s interview.

Out of an abundance of caution, this transcript has a limited number of narrowly tailored redactions, relating only to confidential sources and methods, non-public information about ongoing investigations, and non-material personal information.

I will continue to work to release as many transcripts as possible. The American people deserve transparency and the truth.
