“I request the link www.dougcollins.house.gov/page be placed in the record so the American people can review the transcript of Lisa Page’s interviews. I will continue to work to release as many transcripts as possible. The American people deserve transparency.”

 

WASHINGTON — Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, made the following statement on the House floor releasing the transcript of Lisa Page’s day one interview and day two interview 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, last week, on the floor of this chamber, I released the transcript of the interview of Bruce Ohr from our investigation into apparent wrongdoing at the FBI and DOJ. At that time I said I would make additional transcripts from the committee’s investigation public, and I am here today to keep that promise.

As I stated then, our interview transcripts were pertinent to a congressional investigation. But the 115th Congress ended, the investigation was closed, and copies were shared with certain members of Congress

Mr. Speaker, I request the link www.dougcollins.house.gov/page be placed in the record so the American people can review the transcript of Lisa Page’s interviews.

The American people deserve to know what transpired in the highest echelons of the FBI during that tumultuous time for the bureau.

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.
