The interview of Page was done by a sympathetic party, Molly Jong-Fast, of The Daily Beast who thinks Strok is "hawt."
Former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy made it clear Monday that he wasn’t buying former FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s explanation that her “insurance policy” texts with agent Peter Strzok had been taken out of context.
“Well, I think we have an idea what that insurance policy was. We asked her about it remember, Martha, when I was still in Congress and it was some unusual analysis of whether or not to burn a source. She did not think Donald Trump is going to win the election in November,” Gowdy began.
“But when she says things need to be put in context, the word ‘loathsome’ doesn’t need to be put in context,” Gowdy continued. “When you say somebody ‘will be a national security disaster,’ that doesn’t need to be put in context. These texts have been out there for what, almost two years now. So your viewers are smart enough to read and know the lead FBI agent and the lead FBI lawyer were both biased against Donald Trump. That is who was investigating him in 2016. I’m not sure how she thinks context will improve that.”
MacCallum went on to point out that during his public testimony, Strzok had attempted to insert context into the the exchange. “You had an exchange with Peter Strzok who tried to give you some of the context of the text messages. And you kind of shut him down,” she noted and played a clip of the interaction.
