But when you say advice you got from the Department, you're making it sound like it was the Department that told you: "You're not going to charge gross negligence because we're the prosecutors and we're telling you we're not going to-", Ratcliffe asked Page before the former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer interrupted by saying "That is correct", as the Texas Republican concluded his sentence with "bring a case based on that". The transcripts reveal the context of Page's texts to Strzok, including the idea of having an "insurance policy" in the case of his election.
"Transcripts of two closed-door testimonies by Lisa Page, the former assistant general counsel at the FBI, have provided new insights into the actions of the FBI, Department of Justice (DOJ), and others-including CIA Director John Brennan-regarding their investigation of Donald Trump", reports the Epoch Times. "No he won't. We'll stop it".
Peter Strzok told Congress in 2018 that he deleted communications with Lisa Page, but he claimed he did so for "personal" reasons. But his comments in the transcript of the closed-door interview are the most thorough to date explaining a text Strzok sent Page saying they could not take the "risk" of Trump getting elected.
President Trump has taken notice of the discrepancy. The top Republican on that panel, Rep. Doug Collins, released a transcript of the interview on Thursday as part of an ongoing effort to paint the early days of the Russian Federation investigation as tainted by law enforcement bias.
In one text on August 8, 2016, Strzok told Page that "we'll stop" Trump from becoming president.

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 a year ago, according to transcripts released Thursday.
Hannity asked if Collins there would be accountability for the revelations released in the transcripts.
As deputy chief of FBI's counterintelligence division, Strzok oversaw the Trump-Russia investigation, dubbed Crossfire Hurricane.
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.
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.
