Page, who served as a special counsel to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, has been criticized by Republicans for exchanging texts with Peter Strzok (a former FBI counterintelligence official) that were critical of Trump.

"Did they short-circuit the Clinton email investigation because they wanted her to win?" Strzok was dismissed from Robert Mueller's team once the text messages were uncovered by internal investigations.

Strzok testified that Hillary Clinton and the Department of Justice seemingly struck a deal that blocked the Federal Bureau of Investigation from accessing her private, home-brew email server for information relevant to the Clinton Foundation. Again, it's worth noting that most of the meatier coverage came from Trump-friendly outlets like Fox News. Similarly, Strzok said, an August 2016 text in which Page urged him to stay in his job to "protect the country from that menace" - menace had been a reference to Russian operators, not to Trump. Republican lawmakers have pointed to the messages as evidence of political bias inside the bureau.

Lisa Page transcripts show he LIED.

According to Page, Justice Department, led at the time by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, had "multiple conversations" regarding possible charges for Clinton with respect to gross negligence. Strzok argued that he "never took resources off one and put it onto the other" but that "a hostile foreign power. seeking to clandestinely influence our presidential election" was a far graver threat than the charge that Clinton was mishandling classified information. She is a partner at the Dhillon Law Group. "And that's, as I said, the advice that we got from the Department was that they did not think - that it was constitutionally vague and not sustainable".
