Anti-Trump FBI lawyer Lisa Page confirmed Wednesday her willingness to testify before Congressional leaders “later this month,” facing heated questions over her politically biased text exchanges with DOJ official Peter Strzok.
According to the Washington Examiner, Page’s attorney confirmed her client’s plan to comply with Congressional requests and appear before the House Judiciary Committee at an unspecified date.
“She has offered to voluntarily appear before the committees later this month,” said Page’s attorney. “I received a message from the Department of Justice after 11 p.m. last night that they have finally granted her request to review the relevant documents. We are working to arrange that process quickly so that we can move forward with her appearance before the Committees.”
Lisa Page and Peter Strzok made national headlines earlier this year after multiple text exchanges were publicly released; showing widespread anti-Trump bias throughout the FBI and the Department of Justice ahead of the 2016 race for the White House.
The private conversations raised serious questions over the FBI’s handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server as well as the probe into Russian collusion during the 2016 election.
