Was Lisa Page the Deep State's FBI Go To Person?

Lisa Page
By Robert Wenzel

Just days before the Inspector General's report on the Justice Department's surveillance of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign is expected to drop, former FBI lawyer  Lisa Page gave her first interview to the Page-friendly Daily Beast reporter Molly Jong-Fast.

Jong-Fast writes:
Page, 39, is thin and athletic. She speaks in an exceedingly confident, clear, and lawyerly way. But having been through the MAGA meat grinder has clearly worn her down, not unlike the other women I’ve met who’ve been subjected to the president’s abuse.  She is just slightly crumbly around the edges the way the president’s other victims are.  

But, of course, Page notoriety comes about because of her text message exchanges during the campaign with her then FBI lover, Peter Strzok, that indicated the two lovers wanted to put Trump through a meat grinder.

The messages were so anti-Trump, non-professional, that special counsel Robert Mueller dismissed both Strzok and Page from his team that investigated alleged Russian collusion.

In one exchange, shortly after the 2016 election, Strzok wrote, “OMG I am so depressed." Page replied, “I don’t know if I can eat. I am very nauseous.” The two also contemplated how they could put an end to Trump’s run. “[Trump is] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page asks, to which Strzok replies: “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.”

Trump has been in attack mode against Page and Strozk ever since the texts were released.

This is the Trump attack that Page claims triggered her to speak out:

If Trump hadn't made these comments, she would have found something else to explain her recent public interview. She is in spin mode ahead of the IG report.

What won't be found in the IG report is the curious cases that Page always seemed to have gotten assigned to her.

She worked on the Boston bombing in April 2013, and then on the Edward Snowden case after he leaked NSA secrets in June of the same year.

Then she ended up working on the Hillary Clinton email case.

And then put on Mueller's team.

What the hell is this? Is she the only lawyer at the FBI?

It is almost as if she was the Deep State lawyer at the FBI whenever a case had to be directed in a certain way.

But why didn't the Deep State protect her when the text messages were investigated?

Here's why.

It wasn't the FBI that outed her anti-Trump text messages. The messages were outed by Strozk's wife who learned about the Page-Strozk affair by looking through Strozk's phone text messages. When she discovered the texts, she called Page and confronted her and then notified the FBI.

With a "hell hath no fury" wife on the loose, Mueller and the FBI had no choice but to throw Page and Strozk under the bus.

And so the usefulness of Lisa Page for the Deep State has ended, now she is out on her own trying to spin a life and career that has collapsed.

Jong-Fast informs, “Page felt abandoned by the FBI and Justice because of the release of the messages and because the bureau issued no statement defending her and Strzok.”

  1. Gee, did I get in over my head? Is the kitchen too hot for me? Is it possible that I fucked up and got what I deserved, the mocking of my life from a master mocker? Maybe I can have a bowl of chicken soup with Molly Jong-Fast and this will all go away.
