Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page surfaced on Sunday in a rare interview stating emphatically that she committed ‘no crime’ during her participation of the bureau’s investigation into President Donald Trump and instead, she portrays herself as a victim of the president.
Ironically, what comes across in the interview is her desire to shift the narrative from the mountain of evidence that exposed her anti-Trump hate during the bureau’s Russia investigation.
THE NATIONAL REVIEW
December 3rd, 2019
Page, along with other former senior Obama officials, are doing everything in their power to shift the narrative before DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report goes public on Dec. 9.
Page is hoping the American public has a short term memory.
After all, so much has happened since her text messages with her former lover, now-fired FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok was released to the public by Congress and the IG.
Remember those vehemently anti-Trump text messages they exchanged to one another, all the while they were investigating the president for conspiring with Russia, which in fact, never happened and has been completely debunked.
The evidence that these bureau officials hated Trump is overwhelming.
It wasn’t just text messages but Congress would discover that the bureau planted informants in the campaign, leaked erroneous information to the media to taint the administration and an FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith altered FISA warrant applications used to spy on a Trump campaign volunteer.
Page Knows The Facts Are Against Her
Page knows these facts are against her and her interview is attempting to shift the narrative before the IG report goes public.
Her feelings about Trump is just an excuse.
Page, like her other cohorts at the bureau, had weaponized the law enforcement and intelligence apparatus to first try to stop Trump from being elected and later to target a duly elected president.
In reality, they were also targeting the American people who voted for Trump. And now that the walls are closing in on Page, along with her former colleagues, are working to shift the narrative.
Now, they are attempting to explain the unexplainable. It’s a case of the Emperor’s New Clothes and they need you to believe it.
Distract The Public From The Truth
Page, Strzok along with former Obama officials — FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan — are all working day and night to try to change the narrative and distract the public from the truth.
Those former senior officials want you to believe that there were real reasons to investigate a presidential campaign.
They want the American public to believe that they didn’t allow their anti-Trump bias to infect their investigation.
They want you to ignore the mounds of evidence collected over the past three years.
Just ignore the evidence against them, they say.
They are hoping that Horowitz’s report will somehow exonerate what they have done. They are attempting to mitigate any blowback on them before the report goes public on Dec. 9.
Believe me, they are worried and it’s evident in the number of stories they are leaking.
Here’s what Page said in the IG report:
“While it would be nice to have the IG confirm publicly that my personal opinions had absolutely no bearing on the course of the Russia investigations, I don’t kid myself that the fact will matter very much for a lot of people.
The president has a very loud megaphone,” said Page.
American’s Are Smarter Than That
Guess what? The American people are smarter than that and just so you know, the facts speak for themselves.
We don’t know what Horowitz’s report will say it will be significant and it is expected to lay out the facts into the FBI’s handling of the Trump Russia investigation.
One thing is certain for me, the evidence is insurmountable that Page, Strzok, McCabe, Comey, Brennan, Clapper and many more who were involved in the investigation into Trump, hated Trump.
