‘FBI lovers’ lawyer refuses to testify on alleged…

Report: 2 House Committees Will Interview Lisa Page This Week Lisa Page will not appear for Capitol Hill interview despite subpoena, attorney says

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page is being given two final options to appear by the end of the week before two House committees investigating her anti-Trump text exchanges with a bureau agent in 2016 - or face potential contempt action from Congress.

The 11-hour-long meeting with Strzok was part of Congressional Republicans' skepticism for the FBI's past investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server and the current Mueller probe that has targeted several of Trump's former campaign or administration officials.

Strzok and Page worked on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, but Strzok was removed when the texts were discovered past year.

Strzok is expected to testify at a two public House hearings on Thursday, but some reports suggest that Page could be a no-show at her planned closed-door deposition on Wednesday.

'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, ' Jeffress said. It was then that he heard the news that she may defy the subpoena and refuse to testify and condemned it as a "total disgrace". 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". "It can't require that you answer because you have the right to remain silent", the Fox News senior judicial analyst said. "Congressional subpoenas for testimony are not optional".

"She could go to jail if they really want to press it for blowing off", Napolitano said.

Lisa Page today defied a House of Representatives issued Subpoena to testify before Congress! It's mandatory. She needs to comply'. "The Judiciary Committee intends to initiate contempt proceedings on Friday, July 13, 2018, at 10:30 a.m.", they wrote in a letter Wednesday to her lawyer, Amy Jeffress.

"All she is asking is to be treated as other witnesses have under the Committees" own rules, ' Jeffress said.

But her lawyer said Page will testify at some point. House Republicans have suggested the Federal Bureau of Investigation was conspiring against Trump during and after his presidential campaign, and the two committees are investigating decisions made by the agency and the Justice Department during the election.

Ryan's commentary supported Bob Goodlatte, the House Judiciary Committee Chairman who issued the subpoena for her testimony on Saturday and openly criticized her decision not to appear in court. Page had already left that investigation by the time that happened.
