Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) blocked a bill that would release the report from special counsel Robert Mueller to the public, and said that he would only support it with provisions for further investigations to be opened. "And, we're going to say, we're going to get this out and we're going to put it in ways that people can easily understand, not a large dump, we're going to take it methodically as we go, as we get them cleared, and we're going to get them out to the American people".
In these transcripts of Page's testimony, released by ranking minority committee member Rep. Doug Collins, we learned, among other things, that Strzok looked at the Mueller investigation as his ticket to advancement in an FBI leading the impeachment effort against President Trump.
Strzok waged a similar defense during a contentious public hearing in July of past year.
Strzok, who played a leading role in the FBI's concurrent probes of Trump and Clinton, exchanged anti-Trump text messages with then-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom Strzok confirmed he was having an affair.

The Strzok testimony, which is from June 2018, is creating a buzz on social media and appears to offer more insight into the FBI's activities during the 2016 presidential election season.
As Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel noted, Graham was referring to DOJ's handling of the Clinton email investigation. And in the transcript that Collins has released, Page addresses the FBI's investigations of the 2016 Trump campaign's suspected Russian Federation connections as well as the 2016 Hillary Clinton e-mail controversy. Notably, Page also said that the DOJ had "multiple conversations ... about charging gross negligence", but decided that "they did not feel they could sustain a charge" because they considered the term "constitutionally vague".
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.
