With a week to go before the long-awaited DOJ Inspector General’s report on the FBI’s conduct surrounding the 2016 election, former agency lawyer Lisa Page would like everyone to know that she’s the real victim.
Speaking with the Daily Beast‘s Molly Jong-Fast, who challenged her on exactly nothing (such as whether she altered Mike Flynn’s 302 form, or what the ‘insurance policy‘ was, or if she coordinated with the Washington Post on a “media leak strategy”), Page insists that her hatred of Trump never influenced her work investigating him, and that while she prefers to live in obscurity – she was compelled to tell her side of the story after President Trump mocked her with a fake orgasm routine at a rally last month – and not because of IG Michael Horowitz’s FISA report due on December 9th.
Lisa Page is a “survivor” now.
Pay no attention to the IG report that said her corruption caused irreparable harm that “goes to the heart of the FBI’s reputation for neutral fact finding and political independence.” https://t.co/32cF4Fg2XX

Horowitz has circulated the report to key figures for legal review, and is rumored to clear to clear Page and other FBI officials of letting their raging hatred of Trump (and love of Clinton) color their work – hence the ‘Teen Vogue’ – tier puff piece. We’re sure she’ll go into greater detail when she writes a book on the whole ‘matter.’
