Lisa Page defies congressional subpoena – for now, and maybe forever

I was looking forward to seeing television cameras photographing Lisa Page entering a closed-door congressional hearing today, and maybe – just maybe – hearing leaks about what went on.  The principal picture used of her dates to her days at the Ohio State Law University School and differs in appearance substantially from one captured a few months ago (visible here).

The intervening years do not appear have not been kind.  Or maybe she was just having a bad day.  Either way, I wondered how she would present herself to the assembled media in the halls of Congress: proud and defiant?  But alas, it will not happen.  Not for a while, and if the Deep State keeps protecting its own, maybe forever.

Page's lawyer has raised a defensible reason for avoiding the beginning of accountability to our elected representatives for her behavior as part of the cabal that tried to alter a presidential election using the vast powers of the FBI and NSA surveillance.  Ace reporter Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller explains the excuse her lawyer is using to flout the subpoena:

Page's lawyer, Amy Jeffress, said her client has not had enough time to prepare for an interview.  She also complained that the committees failed to respond to requests "to explain the scope of the interview."

"The Committees would be asking Lisa about materials that she has not yet been shown," Jeffress said.

She also said she accompanied Page to FBI headquarters on Tuesday to review materials needed for a congressional appearance.  But she said in her statement that "after waiting for more than three hours, we were not provided with any documents."

"We have asked the Committees to schedule another date that would allow sufficient time for her to prepare," she continued.  "The Committees have not honored this request.  As a result, Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time."

I smell a rat here.  If the FBI stonewalls her access to documents, this could delay her appearance forever, potentially.  The Deep State would thus protect its own.

FBI director Christopher Wray needs to be put on the spot about this.  I suspect that the game is to delay until the November elections in the hope of the GOP losing its House majority, and thereby end any hearings into the corruption, since the Dems were the beneficiaries and unlikely to want to  expose the chicanery.
