Peter Stzok’s fellow FBI lovebird Lisa Page went before Congress today in a closed door session, but we have a few details available to us about how it went.
Rep. Ratcliffe says Lisa PAGE answered many questions Strzok didn’t and that lawmakers learned a lot of new information. He declined to provide any other details.— Kyle Cheney (@kyledcheney) July 13, 2018
Rep. Gaetz says the questions Lisa Page answered — but Strzok would not — heighten his concern about whether the FBI was driving toward a “desired outcome” in its Russia probe.
He said FBI counsel was still there and at times intervened to prevent her from answering.
Rep. MEADOWS says Page was able to answer more than Strzok because the FBI counsel was less intrusive and seemed more permissive.
Republicans seem far more pleased with her testimony than Strzok’s. Meadows/Gaetz/Ratcliffe all say they learned good new info.
All three, though, declined to say whether her testimony was consistent with Strzok’s. They got *new* info but not necessarily inconsistent testimony.— Kyle Cheney (@kyledcheney) July 13, 2018
