The counterintelligence investigation was the real, abusive deal, and it continues today under the authority of Special Counsel Robert Mueller (see transcript page 37).
"No he won't. We'll stop it", Strzok replied.
Page and Strzok exchanged text messages in 2016 in which he said they would stop Donald Trump from being elected president, according to a Department of Justice inspector general report that was released last June.
Strzok was a lead investigator in the Clinton email probe.
Strzok waged a similar defense during a contentious public hearing in July of a year ago.

Sadly, Page's remarks only confirm what many Republicans have suspected from the very beginning - that biased individuals within the FBI and DOJ abused the bureau's power to tip the 2016 election in Clinton's favor.
CORRECTION: A previous version of this story was improperly worded so as to imply the tarmac meeting referenced in the post was an unfounded claim.
House Republicans have released the transcript of a closed-door interview of disgraced and fired former FBI official Peter Strzok, who acted as a point man for both the FBI's Hillary Clinton email server investigation and its Trump-Russia probe. 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". But Strzok stressed that due to an agreement between the [Department of Justice] and Clinton, they were not allowed to search Clinton Foundation emails for information that could help in their investigation.
Asked in general terms whether he had "ever been part of the FBI's efforts to infiltrate a USA political campaign" or "been part of an effort to put a spy in a US political campaign", Strzok said no.
"We were not. We did not have access", Strzok responded.
