So this diabolical bitch, who is already on record as being part of a conspiracy to stop Trump from being elected and then to get him wrapped up in a hoax conspiracy with Russia to start a fishing expedition to impeach him, was refusing to appear before Congress.
To the point that they were forced to send US Marshals after her.
Ex-FBI LAYER Lisa Page today defied a House of Representatives issued Subpoena to testify before Congress! Wow, but is anybody really surprised! Together with her lover, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, she worked on the Rigged Witch Hunt, perhaps the most tainted and corrupt case EVER!

How can the Rigged Witch Hunt proceed when it was started, influenced and worked on, for an extended period of time, by former FBI Agent/Lover Peter Strzok? Read his hate filled and totally biased Emails and the answer is clear!

And now she’s saying she still isn’t going to appear.
The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, said Wednesday that Republicans recently were forced to call in U.S. Marshals to serve former FBI lawyer Lisa Page with a subpoena to testify before Congress, as he accused Page of “apparently” having “something to hide.”
The revelation came after Page’s lawyer claimed she “will cooperate with this investigation,” even as Page defied that subpoena to appear on Wednesday before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees.
Lawmakers want to question Page about her anti-Trump texts with FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she was having an affair.
Goodlatte told Fox News that Page’s attorney initially agreed to accept service of the subpoena for Page, but “then turned around and immediately tried to reject it.”
“So that’s why we sent the marshals to her house, to serve the subpoena,” the Virginia Republican said. “They had to go back three times before they were finally able to reach her.”
Attorney Amy Jeffress told Fox News that Page would not appear on Capitol Hill on Wednesday because they did not have enough time to prepare. She said they would ask lawmakers to schedule another date for the closed-door interview.
President Trump lashed out at Page in a tweet on Wednesday evening, accusing her of aiding a “rigged witch hunt” at the FBI against him.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Republican chairmen of the two committees sent a letter Page and her legal team laying out three options. That includes showing up at a public hearing with Strzok on Thursday, appearing for a closed door deposition Friday or facing more legal trouble.
“Interviewing your client, Lisa Page, is an important part of this investigation,” Goodlatte and Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., wrote in the letter.
The letter lays out a timeline, stating that, if Page does not appear, the committee “intends to initiate contempt proceedings” on Friday at 10:30 a.m.
“She has been in complete defiance of cooperation with the House Judiciary Committee and the Oversight and Government committee for seven months now,” Goodlatte said. “I think it’s very important for her to understand that she should comply with it now before she’s held in contempt of Congress, which could happen as soon as Friday.”
In a statement released Wednesday, Page’s lawyer dismissed Goodlatte’s claim that she has something to hide.
“There is no basis for claims that Lisa has anything to hide or is unwilling to testify,” Jeffress said.
I have no idea why this stuff has gone on this long. This bitch should have had her home raided as soon as those initial “secret society” and “don’t worry, we’ll stop him” tweets were released a year ago.
But finally, the wheels are turning.
Trump is now on the attack.
No one who watched any portion of that Rod Rosenstein hearing can believe that this is anything other than a conspiracy by the so-called “deep state” to destroy Donald Trump, and that all of these people, up to Obama, are guilty of treason.
Strzok has already testified behind closed doors, but he was told by Rosenstein not to answer any questions. Rosenstein answered no questions. The DOJ and FBI have still not complied with Congressional requests for documents.
But all they are doing is stalling.
Rosenstein can I guess flee to Israel.
But Trump needs to be careful. The fact that they are stalling means they apparently believe they have some ace in the hole. Otherwise, what the hell are they up to?
Buying time for what?
Strzok to Appear in Front of the People
Strzok is now being forced to testify publicly.
Embattled anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok is set to testify publicly for the first time on Thursday before House Republicans investigating bias at the nation’s top law enforcement agency, just one day after his former lover at the FBI, attorney Lisa Page, ducked a Congressional subpoena.
GOP leaders are expected to grill Strzok at a joint session of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees beginning at 10 a.m. EST.
Their focus will be the slew of Trump-bashing texts Strzok sent using his FBI phone while conducting investigations into Russian election meddling and Hillary Clinton’s email server, as well as the possible impact of any political bias on investigative decisions. Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe earlier this year after his texts were revealed.
In particular, lawmakers have keen interest in questioning Strzok on why he did not act immediately when potentially classified emails were found on a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner, who was married at the time to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
He’s just going to refuse to answer questions again, no?
How can he answer these questions?
Honestly, the whole Congressional hearing thing needs to wrap up.
He already appeared and didn’t answer questions.
Publicly appearing and doing the same thing means what?
We need to open criminal proceedings, and it needs to be someone other than the FBI or the DOJ that opens the criminal proceedings.
