Former FBI Lawyer Lisa Page Claims Vindication from DOJ Russia-Probe Report

The former FBI official often at the center of President Donald Trump’s Twitter tirades — as well as his campaign rally speeches — Lisa Page, fired back at the president Monday, saying the Justice Department report exonerates her once and for all.

In a pair of tweets, Page, who was relatively silent up until last week despite being at the center of a political firestorm, says FBI investigators have poured over “every text, email, and note I ever wrote” and concluded that her personal feelings had no bearing on the investigation into the president.

A report by the Department of Justice Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, released Monday concludes that the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign’s connections to Russia during the 2016 was justified. It said that, despite numerous procedural missteps by the agency, there was no indication it was politically biased against the president.

Despite months of abuse from Trump and other Republicans, Page remained relatively silent since she left the agency in May 2018. She left after texts between her and her lover, Peter Strzok, who was leading the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign, leaked and showed the couple’s deep distrust of the president.

Page broke her silence in an interview with the Daily Beast, saying that Trump’s mockery of her at a campaign rally in Minnesota, in which he mimicked her having an orgasm, was the “last straw.”

“I’m done being quiet,” she tweeted at the time.

Procedural missteps?
Had it been any other American?
It would be called abuse of power, or at the very least, positional entitlement.

I hope Lisa is aware that R’s do not have a record of accepting vindication of 2 investigations. SEVEN Congressional investigations disproved the Benghazi conspiracies. The FBI did not file charges against Hillary Clinton. THREE agency investigations found NO evidence to support the Uranium One deal. FOUR investigations declared Vince Foster’s death a suicide. And a long and short form Hawaiian birth certificate was proof of birth in Hawaii. ZERO arrests have been made in the 3-5 million illegal votes for Hillary. AND the Clinton Foundation is still operating, while the Trump Foundation was fined and shutdown by legal order.… Read more »
