Ex FBI lawyer Lisa Page breaks her silence two years after her anti-Trump messages were released to the congress and had her become the target of the President’s anger.
Page took to Twitter on Sunday to tweet her sentiments.
“Im done being quiet,” Page said, along with a link to her interview with The Daily Beast.
The interview exposes Page calling Trump’s attacks “sickening” and said she chose to speak out after the President did a lewd impression of her text exchanges with former FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she had an affair, during a Minnesota rally in October.
“I had stayed quiet for years hoping it would fade away, but instead it got worse,” Lisa Page said. “It had been so hard not to defend myself, to let people who hate me control the narrative. I decided to take my power back.”
Page’s interview comes just ahead of the planned Dec. 9 release of a report from the Justice Department inspector general on how the FBI conducted its investigation into Trump associates and Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“It’s like being punched in the gut,” Page told the Daily Beast, referencing Trump’s broadsides. “My heart drops to my stomach when I realize he has tweeted about me again. The president of the United States is calling me names to the entire world. He’s demeaning me and my career. It’s sickening.”
“I don’t ever know when the president’s going to attack next,” Lisa Page told the Daily Beast. “And when it happens, it can still sort of upend my day. You don’t really get used to it.”
