Ex-FBI Lawyer Page Defies Subpoena, Won’t Show Up For House Interview

An attorney for ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page said late Tuesday that she would not show up for a private interview on Wednesday with two House committees — despite being subpoenaed to appear.

. “Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time,” attorney Amy Jeffress said in a statement, claiming that Page did not have enough time to prepare. Jeffress said she had asked the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees to reschedule Page.

Page and Peter Strzok, a former FBI agent, exchanged texts saying that they would stop Donald Trump from winning the 2016 election. The two were having an extramarital affair and both were members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, as well as the probe into Hillary’s Clinton’s email scandal.

Trump on Tuesday derided the pair.

“I am on Air Force One flying to NATO and hear reports that the FBI lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are getting cold feet on testifying about the Rigged Witch Hunt headed by 13 Angry Democrats and people that worked for Obama for 8 years. Total disgrace!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Strzok was interviewed privately by lawmakers on the two committees for 11 hours last month, but he will testify on Capitol Hill on Thursday, the first time he will speak publicly about the emails and text messages he exchanged with Page.

House Judiciary Chairman Robert Goodlatte said Page has had plenty of time to prepare as she has known for months that the committees wanted her testimony. He said the committees will use “all tools at our disposal” to force her to appear. “It appears that Lisa Page has something to hide,” Goodlatte said, the Associated Press reported.

The Judiciary committee issued a subpoena Saturday for Page to appear Wednesday, according to Jeffress. She suggested on Monday that it was still unclear whether Page would appear, saying in a statement that they were “still waiting to work out a reasonable date” for the interview and waiting on documents from the FBI to prepare. On Tuesday, Jeffress said she and Page had gone to the FBI to review the materials, “but after waiting for more than three hours, we were not provided with any documents.”

The Judiciary and Oversight panels have already spent much of the summer holding hearings and interviews critical of the FBI and Justice Department. Democrats have strongly objected to the GOP-led investigation, saying it is an attempt to undermine Mueller’s probe and sway public opinion against investigators.

    Shouldn’t ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who was subpoenaed to appear for a private interview with two House committees be forced to appear or thrown in jail for defying the subpoena by not showing up?

    The Democrats are pros at making excuses and stalling when it comes to answering questions and being accountable for their actions.

    Has the FBI and DOJ forgotten their job is to work for Americans? After learning the extent of their unwillingness to work toward an open and free society, I am convinced both departments have wrongly elevated themselves to be above the law. It appears the FBI and DOJ feel they are smarter than the rest of Americans and have the right to decide everything about our country.

    Both agencies need a serious overhaul and new leadership brought in.
