FBI Lawyer Lisa Page Speaks Out, Says Trump’s ‘Fake Orgasm’ was Final Straw

The former FBI lawyer mercilessly mocked by President Donald Trump for her role in investigating ties between Russia and officials in his 2016 campaign is speaking out for the first time, describing the president’s words about her and actions as “sickening” and “demeaning” in an interview with the Daily Beast.

Lisa Page resigned from the bureau in May 2018 after texts between her and agent Peter Strzok, who was leading the counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign and with whom she was having an affair, were leaked and appeared to show a political animus toward the president by the two officials.

In a barrage of tweets since 2018, Trump has repeatedly lashed out at Page and Strzok, who was fired from the agency, and their relationship, citing them as evidence that the FBI was biased against him and his campaign.

Page said the tweets by the president are like “being punched in the gut.

“My heart drops to my stomach when I realize he has tweeted about me again,” she said. “The president of the United States is calling me names to the entire world. He’s demeaning me and my career. It’s sickening.”

Page has remained silent she left the FBI 18 months ago, and the interview marks the first time she has commented on the controversy. She said she felt compelled to speak out after the president mocked her by mimicking a fake orgasm and calling her out by name at a rally in Minneapolis on Oct. 11.

“Honestly, his demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel’s back,” Page said. “I had stayed quiet for years hoping it would fade away, but instead it got worse. It had been so hard not to defend myself, to let people who hate me control the narrative. I decided to take my power back.” 

Page is likely to remain in the news spotlight at least through Dec. 9, when the Justice Department’s Inspector General is scheduled to release a report about the investigation into Trump’s campaign.

They don’t like the President and left an email trail that proves it. Hate is a bad thing.
