Infamous anti-Trump FBI official refuses congressional subpoena

Share

Page, who has been under fire for exchanging anti-Trump text messages with Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok during the 2016 presidential election, was subpoenaed by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, according to reports.

Strzok is set to testify before the Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee on Thursday.

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

"This statement from Lisa Page's attorneys could've been better summed up in one short sentence: 'We're choosing to ignore a Congressional subpoena, '" he tweeted.

"If she wants to come plead the Fifth, that's her choice. But a subpoena to testify before Congress is not optional; it's mandatory".

Ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page has defied a congressional subpoena to testify about anti-Trump text message exchanges on Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Politico reports.

During 2016, Page and Strzok were having an affair while they were both involved in the politically charged investigation of Clinton, Trump's Democratic election rival, for misuse of classified materials on her private email server.

"Lisa and I went to the Federal Bureau of Investigation today to review the materials that were previously produced to Congress relating to her proposed interview, but after waiting for more than three hours, we were not provided with any documents".

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

In a statement released Wednesday, Amy Jeffress said Page requires more time.

Two former Federal Bureau of Investigation officials who worked on the Russian Federation probe may be getting "cold feet" ahead of planned appearances on Capitol Hill this week, US President Donald Trump claimed in a tweet on Tuesday.

Strzok and Page worked on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, but Strzok was removed when the texts were discovered previous year. The texts disparaged President Trump, calling him an "idiot" and "loathsome". "It can't require that you answer because you have the right to remain silent", the Fox News senior judicial analyst said.

Goodlatte said Page knew "for months" the committee wanted her to testify as part of its joint investigation with the House Intelligence Committee. Jeffress accused the panels of using unnecessary "bullying tactics" to push Page into an interview immediately, especially when "she has offered to voluntarily appear before the committees later this month".

Strzok was removed from Mueller's team when the texts were discovered previous year.

Strzok was questioned for 11 hours over his role and alleged bias in a closed hearing of the two committees two weeks ago. Page left it voluntarily shortly after she joined the team and eventually left the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
