Former FBI attorney Lisa Page has “voluntarily” agreed to appear for a private interview before House committees on Friday, following her refusal to appear for a deposition Wednesday despite a congressionally issued subpoena.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said Thursday that the committee is still working out details, but called it an “important and positive development.” Page and FBI colleague and former lover Peter Strzok, who testifies Thursday, are under scrutiny for a series of anti-Trump texts.
“The good news is that late last night, through her attorney, Lisa Page did agree to appear for a private interview on Friday, voluntarily.
House Republicans sent a letter to Page’s attorney on Wednesday, laying out three options for Page: show up at Thursday’s public hearing alongside Strzok, attend a closed-door deposition on Friday or face contempt of Congress proceedings beginning Friday morning.
Page’s closed-door interview Friday will take place one day after embattled FBI agent Strzok testifies in a public hearing before both the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees.
