Trump Dings ‘Ex-FBI LAYER' Lisa Page for Skipping House Subpoena

Peter Strzok and Lisa Page

But her lawyer, Amy Jeffress, pushed back, arguing in a statement that Page needed "clarification of the scope of the Committee's interest in interviewing her and access to relevant documents" before she sat for an interview with the panels.

"She was a part of the mess that we uncovered over at DOJ", said Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican. She has an obligation to come and testify.

"Ex-FBI LAYER [sic] Lisa Page today defied a House of Representatives issued Subpoena to testify before Congress!"

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday warned Page she must appear for the private session before the Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees or the House could take action against her.

'Congressional subpoenas for testimony are not optional, ' he said. "It's mandatory. She needs to comply", he added.

Democrats did not say what Strzok's responses to any of the questions were, but they did call for the full transcript of the meeting to be released by Republicans.

The summary said Republicans asked questions like, "I don't mean to embarrass you, but is Lisa Page someone that you do or at some point in time did love?" and, "So what I'm trying to establish through all of that is, was Lisa Page someone that you cared about deeply at the time you were sending these messages?" Page, who exchanged anti-Trump text messages with FBI official Peter Strzrok during the Clinton email investigation, was asked to appear for an interview with the committees.

Strzok and Page both worked under former FBI Director James Comey during the FBI's investigation of Clinton's emails.

"As an additional, and final, accommodation, the [Judiciary] Committee will stay the contempt proceedings provided Lisa Page voluntarily appears on July 12, 2018, at 10:00 a.m., at a previously scheduled public hearing regarding relevant issues under investigation", Oversight Chair Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) wrote. Of the 17 team members, 13 are registered Democrats, according to reports.

As the committees have investigated bias at the Justice Department, they have focused much of their ire on Strzok.

But it also outlined conversations between Strzok and Page that had never before seen the light of day.

Trump is 'not ever going to become president, right? "Right?!" Page wrote to Strzok.

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

Page and fellow Federal Bureau of Investigation employee Peter Strzok were involved in an extramarital affair.
