Former NYPD Commissioner Calls for Obstruction Investigation into Clinton Email Probe

Strzok said DOJ attorneys believed that "we lacked probable cause to get a search warrant for those servers and projected that either it would take a very long time and/or it would be impossible to get to the point where we could obtain probable cause to get a warrant".

Graham also told Fox News on Wednesday that he also wanted a special counsel to investigate "potential crimes" by officials in the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation. It could be construed as a convenient excuse for a cover-up, but she continued, "The Clinton investigation was whether she mishandled classified information. It is further evidence that, contrary to the impression that the President's allies in Congress tried to create with their selective and often inaccurate leaks, Pete at all times discharged his duties honorably, patriotically, and without regard to his personal political opinions".

Page and Strzok exchanged text messages in 2016 in which he said they would stop Donald Trump from being elected president, according to a Department of Justice inspector general report that was released last June.

Both Page and Strzok no longer work at the FBI - Page resigned and Strzok was sacked.

During Page's interview with the Judiciary Committee, she essentially confirmed the texts referred to the Russian Federation investigation and said the FBI "knew so little" when the investigation began.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this story was improperly worded so as to imply the tarmac meeting referenced in the post was an unfounded claim.

However, the transcripts released on Thursday show that Strzok told the committee Mueller never asked him if the sentiment reflected in that text had any influence on decisions made during the Trump-Russia probe.

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.

While Strzok kept the terms of the agreement, he expressed frustration with the limitations.
