Trump Dings ‘Ex-FBI LAYER' Lisa Page for Skipping House Subpoena

Report: 2 House Committees Will Interview Lisa Page This Week Lisa Page will not appear for Capitol Hill interview despite subpoena, attorney says

Page, who exchanged anti-Trump text messages with FBI official Peter Strzrok during the Clinton email investigation, was asked to appear for an interview with the committees.

Updated 10:33 a.m. | The attorney for former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, who refused to testify Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee, said her client plans to testify and that the committee's "bullying tactics" are unnecessary.

Page and Strzok both worked on the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails and later on the Russian Federation investigation.

During FBI agent Peter Strzok's closed-door interview with lawmakers last month, House Republicans seemed to care more about a relationship he had with a colleague and probing the Mueller investigation than they did about Russian Federation interfering with a USA election.

She was expected to appear before the Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Wednesday, Fox News reported Monday.

Strzok was having an extramarital affair with Page during the case and was also subpoenaed by congressional investigators following the discovery of the anti-Trump text messages. She resigned from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in May. It was then that he heard the news that she may defy the subpoena and refuse to testify and condemned it as a "total disgrace".

Even several committee Republicans don't expect that Page will seriously consider taking up the offer for her to appear at the hearing Thursday, to be questioned alongside Strzok.

"The Committees would be asking Lisa about materials that she has not yet been shown", Page's attorney Amy Jeffress said on Tuesday, explaining Page's refusal to show up for Wednesday's deposition.

"If she wants to come plead the Fifth, that's her choice", he added. "It's mandatory. She needs to comply", Ryan said after a regular House GOP conference meeting. Her attorney said Page hadn't been given enough information about the committees' intended line of questioning.

In a statement, Mr. Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, said Ms. Page "has no excuse" for her failure to appear, saying she has known for months the two committees were interested in her testimony.

"I am very disturbed by this", Ryan told journalists at a press briefing Wednesday.

"Through her actions and words, Lisa has made it abundantly clear that she will cooperate with this investigation".

Strzok was already interviewed privately by lawmakers on the two committees for 11 hours June 27.

Page later left the Federal Bureau of Investigation but Strzok remains.

A report by the Justice Department's internal watchdog released last month detailed the inflammatory texts between the two, including an exchange in which Strzok wrote "we'll stop it" in reference to a potential Trump election win.
