Chairman Goodlatte: ‘It appears that Lisa Page has something to hide’

President Donald Trump attacked a former FBI lawyer on Wednesday after she failed to testify on allegations of anti-Trump bias in the FBI's investigation of him.
Lisa Page, an ex-FBI lawyer who was romantically involved with former lead Trump-Russia investigator Peter Strzok, will not yet appear before the committee as she has not been told what topics will be discussed and the Federal Bureau of Investigation has not given her documents to review, her attorney Amy Jeffress told Politico.
Page and Strzok - paramours while working within the agency - worked on the FBI's Hillary Clinton email investigation as well as Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.
During 2016, Page and Strzok were having an affair while they were both involved in the politically charged investigation of Clinton, Trump's Democratic election rival, for misuse of classified materials on her private email server.
After the meeting, conservative House Freedom Caucus leader Rep. Mark Meadows, a North Carolina Republican, said that the committee planned to give Page two options to comply with the subpoena: Appear for a closed-door interview later this week or testify alongside Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok at a public hearing scheduled for Thursday.
In his tweet, Trump called Strzok and Page the "FBI lovers" in a reference to the fact that the pair were in a romantic relationship. Her attorney said Page hadn't been given enough information about the committees' intended line of questioning.
"Through her actions and words, Lisa has made it abundantly clear that she will cooperate with this investigation", Jeffress said.
He is scheduled to appear again in a public hearing Thursday morning.
In a new statement Wednesday, Amy Jeffress said Page had offered to voluntarily appear before the committees later this month, but needed more clarification about what the lawmakers would be asking. "As a result, Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time".
The [House Judiciary and Oversight] Committees' bullying tactics here are unnecessary.
Page was schedule to testify before Congress Wednesday.
The Judiciary and Oversight panels have already spent much of the summer holding hearings and interviews critical of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department.
The two exchanged text messages saying "we'll stop" a Trump presidency, a report by the FBI Inspector General found. "Total disgrace!" the president tweeted Monday.
Trump torched Page and Strzok on Tuesday while aboard Air Force One headed to Brussels.
He testified behind closed doors last month, and his attorney has also clashed with Republicans on the two committees, accusing them of mischaracterizing Strzok's testimony and then refusing to release the transcript of his interview.
The report did not find that the conclusions in the Clinton investigation were tainted by political bias, but criticized Strzok and Page for their conversations.
Strzok will testify publicly before the committees on Thursday.
Most recently, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein fended off such accusations from top Republican Reps.
