Trump-hating FBI lawyer Lisa Page Will Not Appear Before House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday Despite Congressional Subpoena–
The House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed Lisa Page to appear in a closed-door interview Wednesday.
Page’s lawyer is arguing her client wasn’t given enough time to prepare for the interview, therefore she will not be showing up to Capitol Hill Wednesday.
Freedom Caucus members Meadows, Jordan and DeSantis blasted Lisa Page earlier Tuesday evening for ignoring a Congressional subpoena.
House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte released a statement late Tuesday night on Lisa Page.
Goodlatte said it appears “key witness” Lisa Page has something to hide and Congress will use all tools at their disposal to obtain her testimony.
The House Judiciary Chairman also said Americans across the country are alarmed at the bias exhibited by officials at the FBI and DOJ and it is imperative Congress conduct vigorous oversight to ensure it never happens again.
Lisa Page plans to blatantly defy a congressional subpoena by refusing to appear for her deposition. She is a key witness, and it is critical that she come before @HouseJudiciary to answer questions as part of our investigation. It appears she has something to hide.

Lisa Page resigned from her position as an FBI lawyer on May 4th.
FBI’s chief of counterintelligence, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were caught exchanging anti-Trump text messages over the summer of 2017.
Lisa Page subsequently left the Special Counsel investigation in September of 2017.
Lisa Page sure had a lot to say during the election in her tens of thousands of text messages to her lover Peter Strzok while they worked to take down Trump; now all of a sudden she doesn’t want to talk.
