Trump target Lisa Page blasts his 'orgasm' mockery of her

Lisa Page, the former FBI and Department of Justice attorney whose texts with FBI agent Peter Strzok led to a number of investigations into conduct at America's premier law enforcement and intelligence agencies, spoke out in an interview published Sunday at the Daily Beast.

Page's interview comes just ahead of the planned December 9 release of a report from the Justice Department inspector general on how the FBI conducted its investigation into Trump associates and Russian interference in the 2016 election. She later became special counsel to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe shortly before the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's personal email server and then the Russian Federation probe.

"'But her emails' would soon give way to an actual threat to national security, one that existed not in the fever dreams of Fox News and the Breitbart comments section, but in the real, risky world the Federal Bureau of Investigation exists to protect us from, where things like foreign meddling in our elections takes place: strong evidence of Russian interference in the election on behalf of Trump", Jong-Fast wrote. "I love you so much!" apparently mimicking an orgasm, although Fox News disputed this was Trump's intention.

"It's nearly impossible to describe" what it's like, she told me. Maybe Lisa Page did, but I just took it as an overly lovey dovey conversation between Lisa Page & Peter Strzok.

In their bid to discredit the Mueller investigation, Trump and his allies have relentlessly targeted Page and Strzok in a series of personal attacks.

"It's like being punched in the gut", Page told the Daily Beast, referencing Trump's broadsides. My heart drops to my stomach when I realize he has tweeted about me again. "The president of the United States is asking me names to your complete world".

"He's demeaning me and my career", she said.

However, Page did not bring up her Trump-bashing messages with Strzok in 2016, that revealed how the two hated Trump and bore a visceral fear that he would become president. Instead, Jong-Fast paints her as a purely innocent victim of Trump's "baked-in misogyny and sociopathy" whose life was somehow "destroyed". "It never goes away or stops, even when he's no longer publicly attacking me".

Meanwhile, Horowitz's report has been leaked to several outlets, including The Washington Post. "Keep in mind, Strzok and Page, and the Democrat and the DC media's argument is, 'yeah they were biased, yeah they said bad things, but it had no impact on the outcome.' In other words, Trump was treated fairly in the end", said Gowdy. "I applaud Lisa Page for doing that", Scaramucci told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day".

"However it's additionally very intimidating because he's aloof the President of the United States". She testified behind closed doors before the House Judiciary Committee in July 2018.

"It's fucking upsetting that I can't allow my son to listen to our President because our President is inappropriate, misogynistic and unpresidential", the Netflix star said.

The messages launched to the media and lawmakers have been "chosen for their political impression", Internet page said.

Page hasn't spoken publicly before. "Because before this moment in time, there's not a person outside of my small legal community who knows who I am or what I do".

"They lack plenty of context", she said.

"It's very painful to see to places like the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice that represent so much of what is excellent about this country, not fulfilling the critical obligation that they have to speak truth to power". Like, when somebody makes eye contact with me on the Metro, I kind of wince, wondering if it's because they recognize me, or are they just scanning the train like people do?

Trump and Republicans have seized on the texts as proof of political bias.

"I don't ever know when the president's going to attack next", Page told the Daily Beast.

"It's crushing to see the noble Justice Department, my Justice Department, the place I grew up in, feel like it's abandoned its principles of truth and independence", Page said.

"It's particularly devastating to be betrayed by an organization I still care about so deeply", she said.
