Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page told Congress earlier this summer that at the time Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel, the FBI had no proof of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.
This was more than nine months after the FBI had opened an investigation into possible cooperation between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
Page was testifying before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees in mid-July as part of a joint congressional investigation into the Clinton email scandal. The transcript of Page’s deposition has just been released.
Page was responding to Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe of Texas, who wanted more information about a May 2017 text where Page, and her then colleague and lover FBI agent Peter Strzok discussed the merits of joining Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
Page sat for the transcribed interview before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in mid-July as part of a joint congressional investigation into the Justice Department’s handling of the Russia and Clinton email probes.
According to the transcript, Page stopped mid-answer. “…sorry. Can I consult with counsel? I’m sorry. I need to consult with FBI counsel for a moment.”
