Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page said last year on Capitol Hill that any bias in the FBI against Donald Trump did not impact the bureau’s  investigations of the Trump campaign’s suspected Russia ties and of Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Her comments before theHouse Judiciary and Oversight committees were included in a transcript released Tuesday by the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, the Washington Post reports:

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.

“Many of us in law enforcement dislike the subject of our investigations. We are not keen on pedophiles and fraudsters and spies and human traffickers,” Page said. “That is fine. What would be impermissible is to take that harsh language and to act in some way that was illegal or against the rules. And we don’t do it.”
