Lisa Page Speaks Out
Dec 3, 2019 at 02:10 AM

The Quick Facts

  • On Sunday, The Daily Beast published an interview with former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who discussed the damaging impact of Trump's attacks and the national spotlight on her life.
  • Page and former FBI agent Peter Strzok were at the center of a 2018 scandal which resulted in Strzok being removed from the Mueller probe. Page and Strzok, who at the time were having an extramarital affair, were discovered to have sent strongly anti-Trump texts while they were involved in the 2016 FBI probe into Hillary Clinton's private email server.
  • Page said that she was finally motivated to speak out after seeing President Trump mock her by acting out an orgasm in front of thousands of supporters at a rally.
  • This comes a week before the release of a report from the Justice Department's Inspector General on Trump's claims that the FBI spied on his 2016 campaign illegally. A draft copy of the report concludes that those claims are false.
