Default Lisa Page will not appear for Capitol Hill interview despite subpoena, attorney says

Basically she needs more time to come up with the lie she's gonna tell.

Lisa Page will not appear for Capitol Hill interview despite subpoena, attorney says

Quote:
Former FBI attorney Lisa Page will not appear for a private interview with two House committees despite being subpoenaed, her attorney told Fox News Tuesday.

In a statement, Amy Jeffress said her client did not have enough time to prepare and had asked the the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees to schedule another date.

"The Committees have not honored this request," Jeffress said. "As a result, Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time."

In a statement, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said: "It appears that Lisa Page has something to hide ... She has known for months that the House Judiciary Committee has sought her testimony as part of our joint investigation with the Oversight Committee into decisions made by the Justice Department in 2016, and she has no excuse for her failure to appear.

"Lisa Page is a key witness, and it is critical that she come before our committees to answer questions as part of our investigation," Goodlatte added.

Isn't it illegal to ignore a subpoena?

Yes, but we've learned Trump haters and Hillary supporters (and Hillary, herself) aren't held accountable...

Lisa should have her sorry but cuffed and spend a few months or years in jail until she changes her mind. It won't happen. My question is why not?

Even as a paid expert witness I always got an official summons which stated what would happen if I failed to appear.

Be nice now guys. After all Lisa has only had two years to prepare to meet justice.
Remember, she was promised that Trump would not be elected.

Yeah, she probably has not been able to come to terms with that yet. Probably still in some type of psychological counseling. Maybe she could use that as her excuse.

Evidently, subpoena's are optional for FBI employees on paid administrative leave having an affair with a co-worker.

US Marshals gettin' involved.

US Marshals served subpoena on FBI lawyer Lisa Page, Goodlatte says, threatening to hold her in contempt

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, said Wednesday that Republicans recently were forced to call in U.S. Marshals to serve former FBI lawyer Lisa Page with a subpoena to testify before Congress, as he accused Page of “apparently” having “something to hide.”

The revelation came after Page’s lawyer claimed she “will cooperate with this investigation,” even as Page defied that subpoena to appear on Wednesday before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees.

Lawmakers want to question Page about her anti-Trump texts with FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she was having an affair.

Goodlatte told Fox News that Page’s attorney initially agreed to accept service of the subpoena for Page, but “then turned around and immediately tried to reject it."

"So that's why we sent the marshals to her house, to serve the subpoena,”
the Virginia Republican said. “They had to go back three times before they were finally able to reach her."

Attorney Amy Jeffress told Fox News that Page would not appear on Capitol Hill on Wednesday because they did not have enough time to prepare. She said they would ask lawmakers to schedule another date for the closed-door interview.

President Trump lashed out at Page in a tweet on Wednesday evening, accusing her of aiding a “rigged witch hunt” at the FBI against him.

“Ex-FBI LAYER Lisa Page today defied a House of Representatives issued Subpoena to testify before Congress! Wow, but is anybody really surprised!” Trump tweeted. “Together with her lover, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, she worked on the Rigged Witch Hunt, perhaps the most tainted and corrupt case EVER!”


Republicans are still trying to talk with Page.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Republican chairmen of the two committees sent a letter Page and her legal team laying out three options. That includes showing up at a public hearing with Strzok on Thursday, appearing for a closed door deposition Friday or facing more legal trouble.

“Interviewing your client, Lisa Page, is an important part of this investigation,” Goodlatte and Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., wrote in the letter.

The letter lays out a timeline, stating that, if Page does not appear, the committee “intends to initiate contempt proceedings” on Friday at 10:30 a.m.

"She has been in complete defiance of cooperation with the House Judiciary Committee and the Oversight and Government committee for seven months now,” Goodlatte said. “I think it's very important for her to understand that she should comply with it now before she's held in contempt of Congress, which could happen as soon as Friday.”

In a statement released Wednesday, Page's lawyer dismissed Goodlatte’s claim that she has something to hide.

“There is no basis for claims that Lisa has anything to hide or is unwilling to testify,” Jeffress said.

Jeffress has said the FBI had not given her and Page the necessary materials to prepare for her hearing, saying the two had gone to the FBI to review the materials, "but after waiting for more than three hours, we were not provided with any documents."

Meanwhile, other GOP lawmakers slammed Page's over her refusal to appear for the interview on Wednesday, with Ron DeSantis of Florida calling it "pathetic" and Jim Jordan of Ohio said she was "once again showing the double standard."

"One set of rules for regular Americans, a different set for the Swamp!" Jordan said.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., a member of the Oversight Committee, said Page's action was "indefensible."

Page and Strzok both worked on the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails and, later, special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. Both were removed from the Mueller probe last year after the Justice Department's internal watchdog made the special counsel aware of the anti-Trump text messages.

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.

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.

A source close to Strzok told Fox that he still plans to attend the hearing Thursday, and his legal team wants the transcript from his closed-door June deposition made public.

The Judiciary Committee also held a contentious hearing June 28 with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. In the hearing, Republicans angrily accused the officials of withholding documents from them and demanded details about surveillance tactics in the Russia investigation.

Fox News' Samuel Chamberlain and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Peter Strzok - I never texted anything negative 'bout Trump.

Committee - Would you mind reading your own texts?

Peter Strzok - Which ones? The ones where I called Trump a disaster and idiot?



We also found out that telling the truth is apparently an impossible position to put Peter Strzok in.

Yes, you read that right. Telling the truth puts people in an impossible situation.

Ol' Pete also pulled out the, "I don't recall" card a few times on pivotal q's he obviously knew the answers to.

Gawd, I at least hope the sex with Lisa was good....

Fireworks at Strzok hearing as GOP reps fume at anti-Trump FBI agent, threaten contempt

Quote:
FBI official Peter Strzok's first public hearing tumbled into a rancorous and heated political fracas on Thursday, as Republicans clashed with Democrats as well as the former investigator over his anti-Trump texts -- and even threatened contempt for initially refusing to answer questions on the Russia probe.

Strzok, throughout it all, remained defiant and maintained that he did not show bias in those infamous messages with former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

Republicans sharply disputed that assessment, with Rep. Darrell Issa later making Strzok read examples of those texts aloud. Among them, Strzok read one message where he called Trump a "disaster," and another calling him an "idiot."


The initial contempt threat surfaced after House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., questioned "how many witnesses" Strzok interviewed before an August 2016 text from Strzok to Page stating "we'll stop" then-candidate Trump from becoming president.

Strzok said he was not able to answer the question based on instructions from FBI counsel. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., rejected Strzok's claim.

"Mr. Strzok, you are under subpoena and required to answer the question," Goodlatte said.


This touched off a heated dispute. Judiciary Ranking Member Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., blasted Goodlatte for putting Strzok in an "impossible position," while Strzok claimed he was there voluntarily. Goodlatte said Strzok could only consult with his own attorney, not the FBI's. Several other committee members chimed in, blasting top Republicans on the committee, with Nadler even motioning to adjourn the hearing all together.

Goodlatte, instead, said that at the conclusion of the hearing, Strzok would be subject to "recall to allow the committee to consider proceeding with a contempt citation."

However, hours later after a break in the hearing, Strzok returned to say that he was advised by FBI counsel that he could in fact answer Gowdy's earlier question.


But after Gowdy asked it again, Strzok replied only: "I don't recall. I'd have to check the case file."

"That's eerily similar to what you said a couple of hours ago. I'm looking for a number," Gowdy said. "You don't recall interviews conducted in the first week of an investigation you originated?"

Strzok maintained that he did not remember, which touched off a another heated exchange with Gowdy.

It was one of many throughout the hours-long hearing, which began with Strzok asserting that his political opinions were rooted in "deep patriotism."

Watched some of it at lunch. I was hoping they would ask little Peter what he meant when he said "We will stop it" meaning the Trump Presidency.
