Trump Says Peter Strzok Transcript is 'Devastating' for CIA, FBI, & DOJ
President slams disgraced former FBI agent and Department of Justice
President Donald Trump said that disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok's closed-door testimony transcript was "devastating" for the Department of Justice, asserting that his he and his campaign were under investigation from as early as 2015.
Following the coverage of the transcript's release by Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Trump said he hoped that coming Mueller report on alleged Russian interference during the 2016 election would also cover Strzok specifically.
“New evidence that the Obama era team of the FBI, DOJ & CIA were working together to Spy on (and take out) President Trump, all the way back in 2015." A transcript of Peter Strzok’s testimony is devastating. Hopefully the Mueller Report will be covering this. @OANN @foxandfriends," the president tweeted.
Strzok did not seem to verify any claimed acts of wrongdoing in the newly released testimony.
But it is still unclear on the specifics in Strzok's testimony Trump is referring to.
The transcripts show Strzok told Congress last year that the agency "did not have access" to Clinton Foundation emails that were on Hillary's private server due to a consent agreement "negotiated between the Department of Justice attorneys and counsel for Clinton."

That agreement was revealed during Strzok's testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on June 27, 2018, with the newly released congressional transcripts from closed-door hearing being made public on Thursday.
Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page also testified that the FBI considered Espionage Act charges against Hillary Clinton, indicating “gross negligence," but was blocked by the Justice Department.
The transcripts from Page’s secret testimony in front of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees last year reveals new perspectives on the investigation into Clinton's emails.
