Former FBI attorney Lisa Page will not appear for a private interview with two House committees despite being subpoenaed, her attorney told Fox News Tuesday.
In a statement, Amy Jeffress said her client did not have enough time to prepare and had asked the the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees to schedule another date.
“The Committees have not honored this request,” Jeffress said. “As a result, Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time.”
In a statement, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said: “It appears that Lisa Page has something to hide … She has known for months that the House Judiciary Committee has sought her testimony as part of our joint investigation with the Oversight Committee into decisions made by the Justice Department in 2016, and she has no excuse for her failure to appear.
“Lisa Page is a key witness, and it is critical that she come before our committees to answer questions as part of our investigation,” Goodlatte added.
Other GOP members of the Judiciary Committee slammed Page’s refusal to appear, with Ron DeSantis of Florida calling it “pathetic” and Jim Jordan of Ohio said she was “once again showing the double standard.”
Anti-Trump FBI lawyer Lisa Page is defying a congressional subpoena because she doesn’t want to answer questions or be held accountable. Pathetic.

“One set of rules for regular Americans, a different set for the Swamp!” Jordan added.
Lisa Page ignores congressional subpoena, once again showing the double standard. One set of rules for regular Americans, a different set for the Swamp!

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., a member of the Oversight Committee, said Page’s action was “indefensible.”
This statement from Lisa Page's attorneys could've been better summed up in one short sentence: "We're choosing to ignore a Congressional subpoena"

Jeffress added that the FBI had not given her and Page the necessary materials to prepare for her hearing, saying the two had gone to the FBI to review the materials, “but after waiting for more than three hours, we were not provided with any documents.”
Page originally was scheduled to appear before both committees Wednesday as part of their investigation into alleged bias at the Justice Department. She and FBI agent Peter Strzok, who is set to testify publicly before the committees Thursday, exchanged disparaging text messages about then-candidate Donald Trump throughout the 2016 campaign.
Page and Strzok both worked on the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and, later, special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Both were removed from the Mueller probe last year after the Justice Department’s internal watchdog made the special counsel aware of the anti-Trump messages.
The Judiciary and Oversight panels have already spent much of the summer holding hearings and interviews critical of the FBI and Justice Department. Democrats have strongly objected to the GOP-led investigation, saying it is an attempt to undermine Mueller’s probe and sway public opinion against investigators.
A report by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog released last month detailed the inflammatory texts between the two, including an exchange in which Strzok wrote “we’ll stop it” in reference to a potential Trump election win.
Strzok was already interviewed privately by lawmakers on the two committees for 11 hours June 27.
The Judiciary Committee also held a contentious hearing June 28 with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. In the hearing, Republicans angrily accused the officials of withholding documents from them and demanded details about surveillance tactics in the Russia investigation.

Coward Who Just Assaulted Teen Trump Supporter Doesn’t Want His Identity Out – Make Him Famous!
Trump Derangement Syndrom (TDS) is a real thing and many Americans are afflicted by it. Which is exactly why videos like the one below are surfacing. People cannot handle those who disagree with them or have freedom of thought to vote as they wish. So instead of respecting those differences, they choose to assault people. Which is why what recently happened to a Trump supporting teen should not shock you at all.
Chicks on the Right reported,
“The left seems to not be able to control itself when they see a MAGA hat. Once again there’s another incident of an adult going after a teenager for wearing the hat, 17-year-old Ashton Hess. Hess was with his family in Seattle, Washington earlier this week. They just had coffee and were coming out of the coffee shop when Ethan Jackson knocked the boy’s hat off his head. A woman picked it up and threw it to Jackson who then spat on it and tossed it in the street.
In a video posted on Hess’s youtube channel, the woman is heard asking him if he knows what the hat says. “Yes, I know what it says. Don’t take my hat,” Hess responds. “That is my property, dude, come on!” “Take your racist a** and get the f*** out of this state!” the man who spat on the hat says. “That’s really necessary. I didn’t do anything to you,” Hess responds. Ashton then asks for his hat back from his mother. “He spit all over it,” she remarks. “That’s disgusting,” Hess says.

Both the woman and Jackson yell at Hess to “get out of Seattle.” Hess’ parents told the Daily Wire they were angry about at what happened. “I was angry that this guy thought he had the right to attack our son because he disagreed with the text on his hat,” Mr. and Mrs. Hess said. “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion; if you disagree with that opinion, you’re not free to be aggressive.” Hess’ parents praised their son for handling “the situation with class.” The reason that people were able to quickly identify who the attacker was? He confessed it on Twitter and appears to be the same person pictured in the video. Here is the 22-year-old ‘non-binary’ Jackson who claims he did it. And here are some of his tweets from explaining his actions.
Notice the twisted racism: And it’s ‘violent’ because he believes it to be violent. Not because that has any relation to reality. And here he is mocking the kid. How insane is this? Does this guy have any sense of what a fascist is and how fascistic this is? This wasn’t the first time Hess had an unhappy experience with the left because he wore the hat. He went to a March for Our lives anti-g*n protests to try to talk with some of the folks there and reason with them. But he found that was impossible, saying he was “treated terribly.” “I’ve been exposed to the craziness of the left already,” the young man said. “This was just the second thing that has occurred that’s showed me really how intolerant and unaccepting the left is.”
There is absolutely no excuse to assault someone who to interfere with their daily lives like this. This teenager was not disrupting anything or bothering anyone. He was just sitting living his own life and minding his own business when this bigot came over and ripped the hat off of him. It is a sad world we live in when people cannot disagree respectfully and left to live their lives in peace. But clearly the actions of this man show that this is no longer the case anymore.
While those who are liberal cry about how bad Trump supporters are it is liberals who are going out and tormenting Trump supporters. They did not ask for this. They are not doing anything that indicates they want this type of treatment. Nobody does. Yet liberals time and time again continue to behave the way they do. In reality, as awful as it is the best thing for the Republican Party. Because the more insane far left Democrats behave the more emboldened the Republican Party’s base becomes. Which means the more support that Republicans get. The more support they get the more elections hey will win and the longer they will retain the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, the White House, and the Supreme Court of the United States.
Share if you agree what happened to this kid is wrong.
Share if you believe this shows how intolerant the left is.
Share if you think that the person who stole the hat should be held responsible.
Share if you agree that what happened to this teenager will be the doomsday of the Democratic Party in the long run.

Roseanne Yells ‘I Thought B*Tch Was White,’ As Whoopi’s Sent Message ‘You’re Fired’
Roseanne Barr is lashing out at ABC and the double standard that exists at the network after Whoopi Goldberg cussed out Judge Jeanine Pirro. Of course, ABC fired Roseanne over an infamous late-night tweet without listening to her side. In a new video, Barr screams, “I thought the b*tch was white,” after the producer kept badgering her. Now, Whoopi Goldberg is freaking out as she gets a message saying, “You’re fired now.”
Well, it looks like ABC is in hot water after Roseanne Barr lashed out at them by taking back her apology to Valerie Jarrett and exposing their double standards in lieu of Whoopi Goldberg’s antics on ABC’s morning talk show, The View.
Roseanne’s timing is perfect with this video, which shows a producer badgering Barr about the tweet that got her fired from her mega-hit reboot of the Roseanne show. Roseanne Barr is extremely agitated in the video, smoking a cigarette, as she tries to answer the same question about the tweet she has answered a million times.
Page Six reports, “Roseanne Barr spoke out relatively unapologetically about the vile Valerie Jarrett tweet that got her ‘Roseanne’ reboot canceled: ‘I thought the b—h was white!’”
They add, “In a video posted to Barr’s YouTube page, a slightly disheveled Barr, 65, smokes a cigarette while talking to a producer about a previous video that was thoroughly edited. After a loud groan, an agitated Barr lashes out at her interviewer when asked about her now-notorious tweet in which she claimed the former Barack Obama adviser was a creation of the Muslim Brotherhood and ‘Planet of the Apes.’”
“I’m trying to talk about Iran! I’m trying to talk about Valerie Jarrett about the Iran deal,” Barr roars in the clip. “That’s what my tweet was about. I thought the b*tch was white, goddammit! I thought the b*tch was white! F–k!”
This brings us to Whoopi Goldberg. Is there any doubt Roseanne was immediately fired without any investigation by ABC because she is pro-Trump? And, isn’t it funny that Whoopi Goldberg can get away with cussing out conservative pro-Trump Judge Jeanine Pirro? She even allegedly spit at her after chasing her backstage and yelling, “Get the f*ck out of here!” Yet, she faces no consequences?
Making matters worse, it was Whoopi Goldberg who publicly trounced on Roseanne Barr over her Valerie Jarrett tweet and demanded ABC fire Barr. From her perch on The View, Whoopi screamed at Roseanne, “So this is what I’m going to say, Roseanne: Just because you were caught with your pants down, don’t try to drag other people down with you. Don’t do that. There are times when you got to suck it up because you step in doo.”
Well, Americans say it’s time for Whoopi to take her own advice. Americans are demanding ABC fire Whoopi Goldberg, immediately. A petition was started online after Twitter lit up with a trending hashtag #FireWhoopiNow, and reports are Goldberg is freaking out.
Twitter user “Vince” tweeted, “#Roseanne was fired by @ABCNetwork for making a comment on a tweet on HER OWN TIME in her OWN HOME. #Whoopi verbally abused, embarrassed another woman who was an invited guest in front of other women with no shame. #FireWhoopi #FireWhoopiNow @ananavarro is Whoopi remark 2U true?”
We could post thousands of tweets from pissed off Americans who are refusing to look the other way this time. The blaring bias for leftists and Trump-haters in Hollywood will no longer be tolerated. Not only should Whoopi be fired immediately, let’s make it simple: Cancel The View, altogether. It’s a ridiculous program with ignorant shrews spewing nonsense. There is no redeeming social value at all.
Judge Jeanine Pirro is also owed a public apology from Whoopi Goldberg, who should be begging for her forgiveness. We won’t hold our breath for that to happen since God knows Whoopi Goldberg has no class at all.
Obama AG Eric Holder Slams ‘Orange Man’ Trump, Says ‘We Want the America of Obama!’
Eric Holder blasts ‘orange man’ Trump: ‘We want the America of Barack Obama’
Politico recently went on the road with the NDRC’s chairman in Virginia for get-out-the-vote efforts on behalf of Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, the Democratic nominee for Virginia governor.
The former attorney general also told Rising Mount Zion congregants that Mr. Northam’s battle with Republican Ed Gillespie was important because “debts have to be repaid.”
“We need to send Donald Trump a message,” Mr. Holder said, Politico reported. “You’re telling Donald Trump that’s not the America I want. We want the America of Barack Obama.”
More from Politico:
For a career prosecutor with little experience in campaign politics, it’s a surprisingly hard-nosed strategy: The plan is to clock some wins in 2018, so that for the 2020 cycle they’ll have both more big donors and more beachheads for wider efforts in statehouses, with the boost of a presidential cycle. And then, maybe, just maybe, they’ll be able to start digging themselves out of the hole Republicans have left them in from years of investing in down-ballot races and outmaneuvering them in gerrymandering. For those who doubt all this redistricting stuff really matters, NDRC staffers point out that four of the nine House seats that Democrats flipped in 2016 were in Virginia and Florida, following litigation that changed the maps.
That will keep Holder out on the trail, continuing his own years-long transformation from buttoned-down lawman to political elbow-thrower, with the slight stiltedness that comes from not being at all used to this campaign business.
“You don’t do politics when you’re attorney general, but as a private citizen and as a defender of the Obama legacy, I’m free to say what I want and to say it in the way that I’d like to,” Holder told me in an interview for POLITICO’s Off Message podcast, conducted in a conference room at Rising Mount Zion after he was done revving up the congregation. “I think what I’m doing now is really a continuation of that which I did as attorney general, speaking out for a more fair, a more just, a more equal America, talking about protecting voting rights, talking about criminal justice reform.”
