Lisa Page Testimony: Trump-Russia Collusion Still Unproven by Time of Rosenstein’s Appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel


Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page said in her testimony that there was zero evidence Trump colluded with Russia by the time Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel according to a transcript obtained by Fox News’ Catherine Herridge. 

So Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel without naming a crime and without evidence of a crime.

Via Fox News:

More than nine months after the FBI opened its highly classified counterintelligence investigation into alleged coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, FBI lawyer Lisa Page said investigators still could not say whether there was collusion, according to a transcript of Page’s recent closed-door deposition reviewed by Fox News.

“I think this represents that even as far as May 2017, we still couldn’t answer the question,” Page said.

Page was responding to Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe of Texas, who wanted more information about a May 2017 text where Page, and her then colleague and lover FBI agent Peter Strzok discussed the merits of joining Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
Page sat for the transcribed interview before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in mid-July as part of a joint congressional investigation into the Justice Department’s handling of the Russia and Clinton email probes.

According to the transcript, Page stopped mid-answer.”…sorry. Can I consult with counsel? I’m sorry. I need to consult with FBI counsel for a moment.”

“I cannot provide the specifics of a confidential interview,” Ratcliffe told Fox News when asked for comment. “But I can say that Lisa Page left me with the impression, based on her own words, that the lead investigator of the Russian collusion case, Peter Strzok, had found no evidence of collusion after nearly a year.”

As previously reported. ONE DAY after Mueller was appointed special counsel, Strzok sent Page a text saying “there’s no big there there,” when discussing whether he would join Mueller’s team.

Rep Ratcliffe read this text exchange to Page and asked her to explain it and if Strzok actually believed there was no collusion to which she replied:

“No, I don’t think so. I think it’s a reflection of us still not knowing…It still existed in the scope of possibility that there would be literally nothing, probably not nothing nothing, as we probably knew more than that by that point. But in the scheme of the possible outcomes, the most serious one obviously being crimes serious enough to warrant impeachment; but on the other scale that, you know, maybe an unwitting person was, in fact, involved in the release of information, but it didn’t ultimately touch any senior, you know, people in the administration or on the campaign. And so the text just sort of reflects that spectrum.”

The President tweeted about this new development Monday morning, calling Mueller’s investigation a “totally illegal witch hunt.”

In the second tweet, President Trump said of the text Strzok sent to Page, “Wow, a conspiracy caught?”


Tom Fitton called for Mueller to be shut down.
