Lisa Page Makes Shock Admission on Russia Collusion, Still Can't Provide Any Evidence

Share

Lisa Page, the FBI former lawyer who came under fire for an illicit extramarital affair with the now-ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok, as well as damning anti-Trump text messages leading up to the 2016 election, gave a deposition in mid-July as part of a joint congressional investigation into how the Justice Department handled the Russia and Clinton email probes.

According to Fox News, a transcript of the deposition confirmed what many already assumed about the Mueller investigation into Russian collusion.

“I think this represents that even as far as May 2017, we still couldn’t answer the question,” Page said regarding whether or not there was Russian collusion.

May 2017 is when Mueller was officially appointed special counsel to investigate alleged Russian collussion.

And the result of that investigation thus far is was what millions of Americans already had a sneaking suspicion about.

There was nothing in May 2017. There’s been nothing that’s become public more than a year after that. And if the Mueller investigation continues the way that it has been going, there will be nothing.

Page, for her part, seemed nervous about the entire deposition.

“Sorry. Can I consult with counsel? I’m sorry. I need to consult with FBI counsel for a moment,” she said in mid-answer at one point, according to Fox.

When Fox asked Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe of Texas, who was one of the many people questioning Page, about her response, Ratcliffe also echoed that the Mueller investigation seemed to be a nothing burger.

Do you think the Mueller probe should end right now?

“I cannot provide the specifics of a confidential interview,” Ratcliffe told Fox.

And Ratcliffe didn’t. But he did, however, reaffirm Page’s seeming admission that there had been no Russian collusion.

“But I can say that Lisa Page left me with the impression, based on her own words, that the lead investigator of the Russian collusion case, Peter Strzok, had found no evidence of collusion after nearly a year.”

Another text message, from Strzok to Page, also seemed to imply that even the anti-Trump Strzok doubted there being any collusion.

“(You) and I both know the odds are nothing,” Strzok wrote, according to Fox News. “If I thought it was likely I’d be there no question. I hesitate in part because of my gut sense and concern there’s no big there there.”

When pressed about that particular message and whether or not Strzok actually believed there was “no big there,” Page seemed to trip over her own words while trying to provide an answer.

“No, I don’t think so. I think it’s a reflection of us still not knowing…It still existed in the scope of possibility that there would be literally nothing, probably not nothing nothing, as we probably knew more than that by that point,” Page said, according to Fox.

“But in the scheme of the possible outcomes, the most serious one obviously being crimes serious enough to warrant impeachment; but on the other scale that, you know, maybe an unwitting person was, in fact, involved in the release of information, but it didn’t ultimately touch any senior, you know, people in the administration or on the campaign. And so the text just sort of reflects that spectrum.”

What an utter waste of time and resources.
