House Committees Will Interview Lisa Page This Week

Peter Strzok and Lisa Page

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan didn't hold back while discussing anti-Trump FBI lawyer Lisa Page Wednesday; threatening to hold the DOJ official in "contempt of Congress" should she fail to testify before Congressional leaders.

Jeffress said she received a message from the Department of Justice at 11 p.m. on Tuesday night granting Page's request to review documents related to the investigation.

"Lisa Page is a key witness, and it is critical that she come before our committees to answer questions as part of our investigation", Goodlatte added.

Page was schedule to testify before Congress Wednesday.

If a witness does not respond to a subpoena, the full House can vote to hold that person in contempt of Congress. Ryan said Wednesday the House will "do what we need to do to protect this branch of government" and that he stands behind Goodlatte.

Page, whose 2016 anti-Trump text messages with Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok have become the stuff of conspiratorial Republican hysteria, defied a Judiciary Committee subpoena to testify in a closed-door setting before the committees on Wednesday.

'Congressional subpoenas for testimony are not optional, ' he said. It's mandatory. She needs to comply'.

Guendouzi, a France U20 worldwide , said that Arsenal is his dream club, one that he wanted to play for since childhood. Great season & WC for Torreira and he could slot straight in but will need some time to settle.

He said that by Page not agreeing to show up, she's adding to the complexity of her legal woes.

"Together with her lover, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, she worked on the Rigged Witch Hunt, perhaps the most tainted and corrupt case EVER!" wrote the U.S. President.

After the Clinton probe ended and Trump won the election, both Strzok and Page joined, for a short time, the investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into possible collusion with Russian Federation by the Trump campaign, as well as possible obstruction of justice. Democrats have strongly objected to the GOP-led investigation, saying it is an attempt to undermine Mueller's probe and sway public opinion against investigators. Of the 17 team members, 13 are registered Democrats, according to reports.

But it also outlined conversations between Strzok and Page that had never before seen the light of day. Trump tweeted. "Read his hate filled and totally biased Emails and the answer is clear!"

Trump torched Page and Strzok on Tuesday while aboard Air Force One headed to Brussels. "Right?!" Page wrote to Strzok. The text messages were uncovered during the Justice Department inspector general's probe of the Clinton email investigation.

The Judiciary and Oversight panels have already spent much of the summer holding hearings and interviews critical of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department.
