Rep. Doug Collins on Tuesday released a 370-page transcript of a deposition that former FBI attorney Lisa Page gave to Congress in July.

Ms. Page drew scrutiny from President Trump and his allies last year for thousands of text messages she exchanged with FBI agent Peter Strzok lambasting the president.

She was also briefly part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating allegations of collusion between Mr. Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Mr. Collins, Georgia Republican, took the unusual step of reading a statement on the House floor and providing a link to the transcript in the congressional record.

Last week, Mr. Collins released a similar transcript of Bruce Ohr, a Justice Department official who served as a back channel between the FBI and former British spy Christopher Steele, who authored a salacious dossier full of unproven allegations against Mr. Trump.

“The American people deserve to know what transpired in the highest echelons of the FBI during that tumultuous time for the bureau,” Mr. Collins said.
