“Mr. Speaker, I request the link www.dougcollins.house.gov/jamesbaker be placed in the record so the American people can review the transcript of day two of James Baker’s interview.”

WASHINGTON — Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, entered into the Congressional Record the transcript of the second day of James Baker’s interview by the Committee on the Judiciary, joint with the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Below are the remarks as prepared.

Ranking Member Collins: Mr. Speaker, I have released several transcripts of interviews from the Judiciary Committee’s investigation into the apparent wrongdoing at the FBI and Justice Department. Today, I am releasing another.

The American people deserve transparency. They deserve to know what transpired in the highest levels of the FBI at the origin of the probe of President Trump’s campaign.

Mr. Speaker, I request the link www.dougcollins.house.gov/jamesbaker be placed in the record so the American people can review the transcript of day two of James Baker’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 the truth.
