An attorney for ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page said late Tuesday that she would not show up for a private interview on Wednesday with two House committees -- despite being subpoenaed to appear.
. "Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time," attorney Amy Jeffress said in a statement, claiming that Page did not have enough time to prepare. Jeffress said she had asked the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees to reschedule Page.
Page and Peter Strzok, a former FBI agent, exchanged texts saying that they would stop Donald Trump from winning the 2016 election. The two were having an extramarital affair and both were members of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, as well as the probe into Hillary's Clinton's email scandal.
Trump on Tuesday derided the pair.
It is unclear what Congress will do next to compel her to testify. When she finally does, it will be interesting to see what information she will provide and if it will help end the Russia investigation.
I am on Air Force One flying to NATO and hear reports that the FBI lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are getting cold feet on testifying about the Rigged Witch Hunt headed by 13 Angry Democrats and people that worked for Obama for 8 years.
