Lisa Page defies Congressional subpoena and will NOT appear to talk

14 July 2018

Republicans did, however, ask 25 questions about Strzok's affair with Lisa Page, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer who Strzok exchanged inappropriate text messages with about then-candidate Trump.

Page's lawyer Amy Jeffress said in a statement that the committee issued a subpoena on Saturday without providing Page with the scope of the interview and before she was able to view the materials that had been produced to Congress, such as her anti-Trump text messages exchanged with Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok.

The House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees are investigating whether there was bias in FBI and DOJ investigations into Hillary Clinton's email server and Russian meddling in the presidential election. President Trump has seized on the Strzok and Page's texts to denounce the Mueller probe as nothing more than a "witch hunt".

Page's lawyer Amy Jeffress told CBS News' Paula Reid that she and Page on Tuesday went to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, her former employer, to review the materials that were sent to Congress, but they were not shown any documents after waiting more than three hours.

"The idea that Lisa Page has something to hide is laughable, because Congress has already released her personal text messages for all the world to see", said Josh Campbell, CNN analyst and former Federal Bureau of Investigation supervisory special agent. "Together with her lover, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, she worked on the Rigged Witch Hunt, perhaps the most tainted and corrupt case EVER!"

Page was subpoenaed to appear for a private interview Wednesday, but her lawyer informed the committees Tuesday that she would not show up.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., a member of the Oversight Committee, said Page's action was "indefensible".

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Virginia) didn't buy this excuse, saying that Page knew for months that she was expected to testify.

"Americans across the country are alarmed at the bias exhibited by top officials at the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation, and it is imperative Congress conduct vigorous oversight to ensure that never happens again". In one of the exchanges, Strzok wrote "we'll stop it" in reference to a potential Trump election win. Trump tweeted. "Read his hate filled and totally biased Emails and the answer is clear!"

According to her attorney, Page wasn't given ample time to prepare for the hearing.

Strzok was interviewed behind closed doors by the committees for 11 hours last month.

"Americans across the country are alarmed at the bias exhibited by top officials at the Justice Department and FBI", Goodlatte said.

Members of the committee, especially Republicans and Trump defenders, had hoped to have Page's testimony before Strzok appears publicly on Thursday.

The Judiciary Committee also held a contentious hearing June 28 with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
