Lisa Page, the former FBI attorney who exchanged anti-Trump messages with former FBI special agent Peter Strzok, has been subpoenaed to appear in front of a joint panel of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, according to CNN, citing two congressional sources.
House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican, subpoenaed Page to attend a deposition on Wednesday, the sources said, one day before Strzok is slated to testify publicly before the two House panels.
Page’s attorney Amy Jeffress said in a statement to CNN that she has been working with the committee staff to arrange for her client’s “voluntary appearance.”
“We asked the committee staff to explain the scope of the investigation and provide sufficient notice that would allow her to prepare, which are normal conditions for congressional committees, but these committees have not followed the normal process,” Jeffress said according to CNN.
“The FBI has agreed to provide Lisa with her notes and other documents to allow her to prepare, but they have not provided those documents to date, so we are still waiting to work out a reasonable date for her interview. Lisa has cooperated voluntarily with another congressional committee that had no objection to explaining the scope of its investigation or providing sufficient notice for her interview. Lisa also cooperated fully with the OIG investigation and appeared voluntarily for multiple interviews, including after she left the FBI.”
Page resigned from the FBI in May after she was removed from Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation over the anti-Trump texts exchanged with Strzok.
Strzok, meanwhile, gave an unproductive interview to congressional investigators two weeks ago, after virtually every question of import was stonewalled by FBI attorneys who would not let him answer.
Strzok has since been subpoenaed again by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte for an open testimony scheduled Thursday.
