Ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page ends silence, slams Trump's 'sickening' attacks

Lisa Page

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page has finally chose to speak out, almost two years after her anti-Donald Trump text messages with former FBI head of counterintelligence Peter Strzok were released to the public. He isn't holding back or feeling sorry for her.

"I had stayed aloof for years hoping it would fade away, but as an alternative it purchased worse", she said.

"It had been so hard not to defend myself, to let people who hate me control the narrative", Page said.

"I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy's [former Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director Andrew McCabe] office - that there's no way he gets elected - but I'm afraid we can't take that risk. Keep in mind, Strzok and Page, and the Democrat and the DC media's argument is, 'yeah they were biased, yeah they said awful things, but it had no impact on the outcome.' In other words, Trump was treated fairly in the end", said Gowdy. "Oh, Lisa! I love you, Lisa!"

His interview occurs about a week before the publication of a Justice Department report on how the FBI conducted its investigation into Trump. Trump mentioned Page in a message days before she was interviewed.

"It's nearly impossible to describe" what it's like, she told me. "The President has a and not using a doubt loud megaphone".

That didn't stop the president from going after Page again last month.

"It's like being punched in the gut", Page told the Daily Beast, referencing Trump's broadsides. "My heart drops to my belly after I ticket he has tweeted about me all all over again". The president called out her name as he acted out an orgasm in front of thousands of people at a Minneapolis rally on October 11, 2019. He's demeaning me and my profession. "It's sickening", she said.

She continued: "But it's also very intimidating because he's still the president of the United States. It never goes away or stops, even when he's not publicly attacking me", she despaired.


She then quotes Page saying, "There are two things that happen in the late summer of 2016".

Yet her canonization is fully underway this week, led by liberals who were once concerned about law-enforcement abuse.

Horowitz' 2018 report on the conduct of the Bureau and Justice Department during the inquiry into Hillary Clinton's unauthorized private email server said the text messages between the pair "created the appearance investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations", but there was no evidence "improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected specific investigative decisions".

Page disputed that there was anything improper in the FBI's handling of either investigation.

It's not just Page who's the real victim here, according to the interview.

Both Page and Strzok were dismissed from the Mueller investigation after the messages emerged. "That's not what we were doing".

In the article, Page laments being called out repeatedly by President Trump and insists she didn't commit any crimes. "Yes, it was totally within the authority of the president, but it was unprecedented and unimaginable, given the circumstances". Would you consider investigators who behaved this way even minimally reliable? "I mean, it just gave the aura of an obstructive effort". They said that text messages and personal relationships did not influence their research. Page resigned after the text messages were discovered.

"I don't have the first clue what they're talking about".

Here's a woman with a known talent for lying - how else to describe someone who successfully, day after day, engages in an adulterous affair? - and who served in her Federal Bureau of Investigation legal position with a "biased state of mind" with a possible "willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate's electoral prospects", is how the Justice Department's inspector general, Michael Horowitz, put it, in reference to his conclusion about the Page-Strzok texts.
