Anti-Trump FBI lawyer snubs congressional subpoena

Lisa Page, the former anti-Trump FBI lawyer who was briefly part of special counsel Robert Mueller's team, will not attend a Congressional hearing for which she had been subpoenaed, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte confirmed late Tuesday.

Two House panels are set to interview former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page in a closed door meeting.

Page's lawyer Amy Jeffress told CBS News' Paula Reid that she and Page on Tuesday went to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, her former employer, to review the materials that were sent to Congress, but they were not shown any documents after waiting more than three hours.

Goodlatte said Page knew "for months" the committee wanted her to testify as part of its joint investigation with the House Intelligence Committee.

"Congressional subpoenas for testimony are not optional", House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) said Wednesday, promising that "we will do what we need to do to protect this branch of government". If she wants to come plead the Fifth that's her choice, but a subpoena to testify before Congress is not optional, it's mandatory.

Ex-FBI LAYER Lisa Page today defied a House of Representatives issued Subpoena to testify before Congress!

The two exchanged text messages saying "we'll stop" a Trump presidency, a report by the FBI Inspector General found.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., a member of the Oversight Committee, said Page's action was "indefensible". If she doesn't, the Republicans said, they will initiate the contempt process at 10:30 a.m. Friday.

The [House Judiciary and Oversight] Committees' bullying tactics here are unnecessary.

The report did not find that the conclusions in the Clinton investigation were tainted by political bias, but criticized Strzok and Page for their conversations.

Ryan, asked about Page's decision not to testify Wednesday, said, "I am very disturbed by this". Trump tweeted. "Wow, but is anybody really surprised!"

But back to the tweet for a second.

The Judiciary Committee also held a contentious hearing June 28 with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

As the committees have investigated bias at the Justice Department, they have focused much of their ire on Strzok. He was interviewed privately by lawmakers on the two committees for 11 hours June 27.

In his tweet, Trump called Strzok and Page the "FBI lovers" in a reference to the fact that the pair were in a romantic relationship.

He is scheduled to appear again in a public hearing Thursday morning.
