Lawmakers want to question Page about her anti-Trump texts with Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok, with whom she was having an affair.

Republicans on Capitol Hill say they're considering holding former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page in contempt after she did not appear for an interview Wednesday under subpoena, but her lawyer maintains she's more than willing to cooperate and House leaders have resorted to "bullying" tactics.

Strzok and Page were involved in a romantic relationship in 2016, when they were both involved in the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's email server.

Strzok and Page worked on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, but Strzok was removed when the texts were discovered previous year.

Judge Andrew Napolitano said that former Federal Bureau of Investigation attorney Lisa Page's plan to defy a subpoena to testify before lawmakers is confusing.

"I am on Air Force One flying to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and hear reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are getting cold feet on testifying about the Rigged Witch Hunt headed by 13 Angry Democrats and people that worked for Obama for 8 years".

"She could go to jail if they really want to press it for blowing off", Napolitano said.

Rockets reportedly 'determined' to sign Carmelo Anthony
Worryingly, his presence on the court saw the Thunder's team plus/minus rating slide to negative 14.3 during the playoffs. Green originally signed with the Rockets on December 28, 2017 and averaged 12.1 points over the remainder of the season.

He is scheduled to appear again in a public hearing Thursday morning.

Her lawyer, Amy Jeffress, said the lawmakers issued the subpoena too late, putting Page at a disadvantage.

"As a result", he concluded, "Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time".

Judiciary committee chair Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) didn't buy it.

Mr. Strzok is scheduled to testify Wednesday before both committees.

In a statement, Mr. Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, said Ms. Page "has no excuse" for her failure to appear, saying she has known for months the two committees were interested in her testimony.

"A subpoena to testify before Congress is not optional, it's mandatory", Ryan said. One of the messages included a reference of stopping Trump for winning the election, but the Justice Department Inspector General's report released last month found no bias existed.

The president has repeatedly painted Mueller's investigation as a tainted witch-hunt led by Democrats. Trump tweeted. "Read his hate filled and totally biased Emails and the answer is clear!"

In one message on August 8, 2016, Strzok reassured Page that she needn't worry about Trump winning the White House.

As the committees have investigated bias at the Justice Department, they have focused much of their ire on Strzok.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the subpoena isn't public.

Most recently, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein fended off such accusations from top Republican Reps.

Strzok was questioned by Goodlatte's and Gowdy's committees for 11 hours behind closed doors on June 27.

House Republicans have engaged in a war of words and threats against the Justice Department for withholding information about the Trump-Russia investigation.
