The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee revealed on Wednesday that Republicans were forced to use U.S. Marshals to serve former FBI lawyer Lisa Page with a subpoena to appear before Congress, according to Fox News. Chairman Bob Goodlatte also said the anti-Trump lawyer had “something to hide” because it took lawmakers numerous attempts to serve her with the warrant. Congress is fed up with these leftist excuses.
Lawmakers want to question Page about the hundreds of anti-Trump texts messages and emails she exchanged with FBI agent Peter Strzok. Goodlatte said after Page ducked and hid several times to avoid being summoned to testify, only the threat of being thrown in jail made her agree to comply. Imagine that — U.S. Marshals had to track down the FBI texter “with something to hide.”
“So that’s why we sent the marshals to her house, to serve the subpoena,” Goodlatte said. “They had to go back three times before they were finally able to reach her.”
The saga with Page has taken several turns this week. On Monday, Goodlatte revealed that congressional lawmakers tried several times to serve Page with a subpoena, but she was either never home or refused to answer the door.
After several failed attempts, the U.S. Marshals contacted her, set-up a meeting, and served her a subpoena compelling her to appear before Congress on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Page defied the subpoena and outright refused to comply with the law, which she obviously believes she is above. On Wednesday, Goodlatte said that Page will be charged with contempt and could face jail time for refusing to comply with a federal subpoena.
Immediately after his bold threat, Page has agreed to testify behind-closed-doors on Friday before Congress.
As reported by Conservative Daily Post, Strzok served as the No. 2 counterintelligence analyst at the FBI before being demoted last year and fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s team after an internal probe found that he had sent hundreds of anti-Trump text messages to Page, a former lawyer at the FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair.
Page resigned from her position in May as numerous allegations against her were mounting. She not only played a big role in the Trump-Russia investigation, she also exchanged countless anti-Trump text messages with Strzok.
CDP has also reported extensively on Strzok and Page’s bias and extreme hatred for Trump. In the text messages between Strzok and Page, which were handed over to Congress earlier this year, the former No. 2 at the bureau spoke about an “insurance policy” in the case that Trump won the election and mentioned a “secret society” to unseat a duly elected president.
Strzok also told Page that he and others at the bureau that he would never let Trump be president.
All of this considered, it’s not surprising Page has done everything imaginable to defy a federal subpoena. In fact, she only agreed to voluntary speak behind closed doors on Friday because Goodlatte threatened to throw her in jail.
Both Page and Strzok are deeply corrupt and made it clear they hated Trump — raising serious questions about how far they went to prevent him from winning the election.
