Disgraced former FBI lawyer Lisa Page met with members of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees on Friday, and was apparently quite helpful.
“She’s been willing to help in the spirit of transparency. … We’ve certainly learned additional things today,” said Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).
According to Fox News, Meadows thinks that the American people would be “would be happy” with what investigators learned during Friday’s hearing, that he found Page to be both “credible” and “cooperative.” and that her willingness to help in the investigation into the misdeeds of the FBI during the Clinton email scandal “speaks well of her.”
“There is new information,” Meadows said. “And that information is credible.”
Lawmakers declined to specify details of the testimony, but the questions were focused on text messages between Page and her fellow disgraced FBI lawyer and lover Peter Strzok.
Page defied a subpoena to testify publicly to Congress on Wednesday, and would have been held in contempt of Congress had she not appeared Friday.
According to Kyle Cheney of Politico, Page answered questions that Strzok would not.
“Rep. [John] Ratcliffe [R-TX] says Lisa PAGE answered many questions Strzok didn’t and that lawmakers learned a lot of new information,” Cheney tweeted. “He declined to provide any other details.”

Lawmakers are now focused on which testimony from Strzok was corroborated by Page.
Not all of the officials present at the session were as impressed as Meadows.
“Lisa Page is not an FBI employee, but the FBI was here providing counsel and giving her direction as to which questions to answer or not answer and there is a question as to the propriety of that before the House,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said. “I didn’t agree with her characterization of every text message and every piece of evidence, but we did not see the smug attitude from Lisa Page that we saw from Peter Strzok.”
Page is expected to appear for a second closed door session Monday afternoon.
Dan Crenshaw White Knights for Liz Cheney After Republicans Blast Her Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment
Birds of a feather flock together.
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.
“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”
“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added.

Crenshaw himself was then roundly criticized in the replies to his tweet.
The people of Wyoming can do better than Liz Cheney, like the people of Texas can do better than you

I wish SNL never mocked you, because then you'd just be some un-known RINO, but unfortunately they made you a star.

Really thought you were the man. Much respect for your service and sacrifice, but if you are part of the GOP trying to purge the party of Trumpism. Count me out. I can’t handle more Romney n McCain candidates

So sad. Turns out your just another politician. You’re right about disagreeing. You’ll see it at the ballot box next election how we can peacefully disagree.

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.” Dan Crenshaw and Liz Cheney most certainly do not represent the future of the GOP.
