Strzok was removed in 2017 from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team following the discovery of the messages with attorney Lisa Page.
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. But Page, in 2018, told House lawmakers that whatever she had to say about Trump or Clinton in the past, it didn't affect the quality of investigations.
Both Page and Strzok no longer work at the FBI - Page resigned and Strzok was sacked.
Page, who came to prominence over anti-Trump texts she exchanged with former FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok while both were assigned to the Clinton and Trump investigations, stressed that senior bureau officials were also expressing anti-Clinton animus - but that neither affected how agents working those cases carried out their jobs.

It also seized a luxury yacht at the centre of a Malaysian corruption scandal off Bali island in co-operation with U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and returned it to Malaysia past year . "Her case is the same as Siti Aisyah's".
Aitan Goelman, Strzok's attorney, said in a statement Thursday: "Pete welcomes the release of the transcript of his closed-door testimony, which we have been calling for since he voluntarily testified last June". 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. Page wrote to Strzok on August 8, 2016.
The transcript shows Strzok was asked about decisions made during the Clinton probe, including then-FBI Director James B. Comey's efforts to draft a memo explaining his rationale for not prosecuting Clinton in advance of interviewing her. Strzok said he was aware of no similar effort to draft a memo explaining a potential decision to charge Clinton ahead of her interview. He said under oath the FBI investigative team unanimously believed Clinton shouldn't be prosecuted.
According to Lisa Page's testimony, the Federal Bureau of Investigation considered charging former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with gross negligence under 18 U.S. Code § 793 for her alleged handling of classified information.
"The president has been unfairly attacked from the moment he was elected in November 2016 on many fronts and now we're beginning just to see the vast scope of what most of us knew, that Ms. Clinton was treated completely differently than what we ended up seeing Trump being treated, and that's just wrong", Collins, R-Ga., said on "Hannity". McCabe has said he could not recall such a meeting taking place.
