Lisa Page Subpoenaed for House Interview...But Accuses FBI of Failing to Provide Documents

UPDATE: Here's President Trump's opinion on the matter.

ORIGINAL POST

Lisa Page, one half of the now infamous pair of FBI employees who sent thousands of anti-Trump texts to one another during the 2016 presidential campaign, has been subpoenaed for an interview with the House Judiciary Committee and House Oversight Committee. She's scheduled to appear Wednesday for a closed door meeting, one day before former FBI agent Peter Strzok's public hearing. Page and Strzok reportedly had an extramarital affair during their tenure at the FBI and did not hide their political bias. Page and Strzok had been a part of the Hillary Clinton email investigation and Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation on Russia, but were removed once the texts were uncovered. Strzok had been placed in Human Resources since the dismissal.

The FBI reportedly agreed to let Page see her notes and documents in preparation for their interview, but she and her team are accusing the agency of dragging its feet. Page's lawyer Amy Jeffress now suggests her client won't show up at all. 

"We asked the Committee staff to explain the scope of the investigation and provide sufficient notice that would allow her to prepare, which are normal conditions for congressional committees, but these committees have not followed the normal process," Jeffress said in a statement. "The FBI has agreed to provide Lisa with her notes and other documents to allow her to prepare, but they have not provided those documents to date, so we are still waiting to work out a reasonable date for her interview."
