GOP Rep Lee Zeldin: ‘If it Requires Handcuffs to Get Lisa Page to Abide by a Congressional Subpoena, So Be It’
Congressman Lee Zeldin on Trump-hating FBI lawyer Lisa Page ignoring House subpoena for close door interrogation:
If it requires handcuffs to get Lisa Page, an employee of the fed govt, to abide by a Congressional subpoena to testify & answer questions then so be it. Working for the FBI is a great privilege, but Page doesn’t become her own branch of govt in charge of her own set of fed laws.
Page’s refusal to testify in Congress shows even more contempt for the American people, accountability & transparency, than it shows contempt of Congress. This former top FBI official & Strzok accomplice should be held in contempt & brought to Capitol Hill by force if necessary.
From Washington Times:
Ms. Page was deputy counsel to then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and worked for the Mueller team, but was removed after text messages between her and her extramarital lover Peter Strzok showed the pair ridiculing Mr. Trump and talking about an “insurance policy” in the event Mr. trump won the election.
In another text, Ms. Page said she was worried Mr. Trump would win the election to which Mr. Strzok responded, “No. No. We’ll stop it.”
Those messages have fueled conservative complaints of political bias in Mr. Mueller’s probe of purported Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Mr. Strzok, who was also a member of Mr. Mueller’s team, is scheduled to testify before the two committees on Thursday. Last month, Mr. Strzok spent 11 hours testifying in a closed session.
On Tuesday morning, Mr. Trump appeared to indicate that Ms. Page and Mr. Strzok would not be testifying before Congress === Read more: Anti-Trump FBI lawyer Lisa Page refuses to testify, despite subpoena
REP. ZELDIN: McCabe’s TESTIMONY THAT DOSSIER WAS USED FOR FISA WARRANTS WAS RECORDED – NUKES CNN’s FAKE NEWS
- GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin: ‘McCabe did in fact testify under oath that there would not have been a FISA warrant if not for the dossier. It was recorded.’
- CNN: McCabe did not say that the Steele-Hillary funded dossier was used for the warrants – citing their usual ‘anonymous sources’
Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY) took to Twitter to nuke another fake claim by CNN.
CNN ran their latest fake news today citing their usual ‘anonymous sources’ – which means their imaginary sources – claiming that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe McCabe did not say that the Steele-Hillary funded dossier was used for the warrants. CNN’s Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto cited two ‘anonymous sources’ on air for their fake news claim.
However, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-NY) asserted that former-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s statements regarding the dossier were recorded during his sworn testimony.
McCabe did in fact testify under oath that there would not have been a FISA warrant if not for the dossier. It was recorded.
