The Google H1b temporary foreign tech terrorists are interfering with this blog – big time.
Former FBI’s Lisa Page, citing text-message conspiracy. What happened to all of the deleted text messages between her and Peter Strzok that we were reading?
Is she now singing:
I’m not Lisa, my name is Julie
Lisa left you 3 years ago?
On Sunday, the Daily Beast published journalist Molly Jong-Fast’s interview with Page, who spoke for the first time about the experience of being targeted by the president over her text message conversations with Strzok, with whom she was romantically involved.
Trump has often cited those texts — in which Page and Strzok speak disparagingly of Trump — as the genesis of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
At at Oct. 11 rally in Minneapolis, Minn., Trump famously acted out Strzok having an orgasm as he called out Page’s name. That performance, Page said, was what motivated her to speak to the press.
“Honestly, his demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel’s back,” Page told the Daily Beast.
“The president of the United States is calling me names to the entire world. He’s demeaning me and my career. It’s sickening,” she added.
Republicans have seized on the “insurance policy” text written by Strzok on Aug. 15, 2016, two weeks after the FBI had begun an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. That probe was launched after the FBI was informed of a claim by Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos that Russia had compromising information on Hillary Clinton.
Strzok, who had exchanged disparaging messages with Page about Trump, wrote to her about the urgency with which the FBI needed to investigate possible collusion with Russia.
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s [former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe] office — that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before 40,” Strzok wrote.
The results of an internal Justice Department investigation are expected to be released on Dec. 9.
After his exchanges with Page were published, Strzok was removed from the Mueller investigation, then fired by the bureau. He has filed a lawsuit against the DOJ and the FBI. Page resigned from the FBI in 2018.
Trump’s claim that Page’s messages with Strzok were improperly deleted was debunked last year by a DOJ inspector general report which found that there was “no evidence” to suggest either Page or Strzok “attempted to circumvent” FBI procedure on retaining data.
A struck (Strzok)love match will only last until the flame goes out. Is this what happened? Did Strzok leave Lisa holding the love match?
