‘FBI lovers’ lawyer refuses to testify on alleged…

Howard TerryJul 14, 2018

Strzok had a leading role in the Clinton probe and was removed from the Mueller investigation after the texts were discovered a year ago.

The summary said Republicans asked questions like, "I don't mean to embarrass you, but is Lisa Page someone that you do or at some point in time did love?" and, "So what I'm trying to establish through all of that is, was Lisa Page someone that you cared about deeply at the time you were sending these messages?"

He testified behind closed doors last month, and his attorney has also clashed with Republicans on the two committees, accusing them of mischaracterizing Strzok's testimony and then refusing to release the transcript of his interview.

According to the Washington Examiner, Page's attorney confirmed her client's plan to comply with Congressional requests and appear before the House Judiciary Committee at an unspecified date. If she wants to come and plead the Fifth, that's her choice. He will return to Capitol Hill for the hearing on Thursday, the first time he will speak publicly about the messages.

Page, who worked for Andrew McCabe when he was Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director and briefly served on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's team, "was part of the mess that we've uncovered over at DOJ", Ryan said.

President Donald Trump attacked a former FBI lawyer on Wednesday after she failed to testify on allegations of anti-Trump bias in the FBI's investigation of him. Page had already left the team.

She is facing charges of contempt of Congress after failing to appear Wednesday for private meetings with the Judiciary and Oversight committees. The investigation is looking at Russian ties to Trump's campaign and whether Trump obstructed justice.

The committee had scheduled Page's closed-door testimony one day before Strzok is set to testify publicly before the Judiciary and Oversight committees.

In a second tweet, Trump wrote: "How can the Rigged Witch Hunt proceed when it was started, influenced and worked on, for an extended period of time, by former FBI Agent/Lover Peter Strzok?".

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the subpoena isn't public. "Read his hate filled and totally biased Emails and the answer is clear!"

The move by Page's attorney was a rare moment of pushback, as Republicans and the President have continued to hold up Page and Strzok as Exhibit A of political bias infecting the nation's premier law enforcement agency. "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".

Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein have rejected suggestions of bias against Trump, and have assured Congress that Mueller is conducting his probe appropriately.

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