  • Ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page ends silence, slams Trump's 'sickening' attacks

President Donald Trump on Monday responded to former Federal Bureau of Investigation attorney Lisa Page, who recently told The Daily Beast that her "heart drops" when he tweets about her because of his repeated attacks over her relationship with former Federal Bureau of Investigation head of counterintelligence Peter Strzok and their texts discussing their opposition to Trump.

Page was thrust into the national spotlight with the disclosure of text messages she exchanged with then-FBI agent Peter Strzok critical of Trump when he was a presidential candidate.

The Daily Beast reported the inspector general's office told Page and Strzok their romantic relationship would not be disclosed but it was reported in news outlets and after Republicans and the president asked questions about it the Justice Department released some of their text messages to reporters.

People have already latched on to the idea that she's lying about what she saw, which is wild, given how often the president has tweeted about her looks, and about them having sex, and then discussed the two of them at a rally in the way that he did.

Controversial former FBI lawyer Lisa Page has broken her longstanding silence, giving a lengthy exclusive interview to The Daily Beast about the variety of allegations that have been levelled against her since her acrimonious departure from the Bureau.

Communications between Strzok and Page have also been cited in legal filings by the lawyers of Michael Flynn, who contend they show Page, then-Special Counsel to Deputy Director McCabe, edited the details of Flynn's 302 - the form used by Federal Bureau of Investigation operatives to report or summarise interviews they conduct - to falsely incriminate him. "But a special counsel official who reviewed Strzok's iPhone before it was reset found it contained no substantive messages".

In coming days, the Justice Department's inspector general report on the origins of the Russian Federation probe will be released.

She said that she is anxious if someone makes eye contact with her on public transport, and that she tries to steer clear of anybody wearing a MAGA hat, to reduce her chances of coming into conflict with a Trump supporter, pointing out that it is "very intimidating because he's still the president of the United States".

Ms Page spoke of her hurt when Mr Trump, at a Minneapolis, Minnesota, rally in October, performed a mock re-enactment of her texts with Mr Strzok, as though the couple were in the throes of passion. "I made a decision to take my power back".

"But I also understand why she didn't do it sooner because it is intimidating until it's not intimidating". To try to further destroy my life.

Trump has yet to comment on the Daily Beast interview.

Also, read @mzhemingway thread on the so-called faked orgasm that Page says spurred her to go public. "Really, what I wanted most in this world is my life back".

A recent Trump attack motivated Page finally to speak out, she said.

"Honestly, his demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel's back", she told the website.

Throughout the November 18 interview with writer Molly Jong-Fast, Page maintained that she did not think she had done anything illegal by exchanging the texts with Strzok, some of which have been described by The Post's Glenn Kessler as reflecting "a deep animus toward Trump and the way he conducted himself during the 2016 campaign". "But having an opinion and sharing that opinion publicly or privately with another person is squarely within the permissible bounds of the Hatch Act".

The DOJ inspector general was ultimately unable to recover a significant portion of the Page-Strzok text messages. "So I'm really not all that anxious about it".

"This man can not be president", Page wrote in March 2016.

Mr Strzok and Ms Page were removed from the inquiry once their August 2016 messages came to light.
