Recently released transcripts of former DOJ attorney Lisa Page’s congressional testimony is shedding stunning new light on the depth and scope of widespread anti-Trump bias and abuse at the department during and after the 2016 presidential election.
“Transcripts of two closed-door testimonies by Lisa Page, the former assistant general counsel at the FBI, have provided new insights into the actions of the FBI, Department of Justice (DOJ), and others—including CIA Director John Brennan—regarding their investigation of Donald Trump,” reports the Epoch Times.
“Included in the transcripts provided to us is information suggesting Brennan was aware of the so-called Steele dossier in early August 2016, and that he included information regarding the dossier in a briefing given to then-Sen. Harry Reid,” adds the report.
Other revelations include: The FBI considered investigating President Trump before the firing of FBI director James Comey, the DOJ refused to pursue “gross negligence charges” against Hillary Clinton, Page worked with DOJ official Bruce Ohr’s wife for at least five years, and more.

DAY OF RECKONING: Anti-Trump FBI Lawyer Lisa Page to TESTIFY ‘This Month’
Anti-Trump FBI lawyer Lisa Page confirmed Wednesday her willingness to testify before Congressional leaders “later this month,” facing heated questions over her politically biased text exchanges with DOJ official Peter Strzok.
According to the Washington Examiner, Page’s attorney confirmed her client’s plan to comply with Congressional requests and appear before the House Judiciary Committee at an unspecified date.
“She has offered to voluntarily appear before the committees later this month,” said Page’s attorney. “I received a message from the Department of Justice after 11 p.m. last night that they have finally granted her request to review the relevant documents. We are working to arrange that process quickly so that we can move forward with her appearance before the Committees.”
Lisa Page and Peter Strzok made national headlines earlier this year after multiple text exchanges were publicly released; showing widespread anti-Trump bias throughout the FBI and the Department of Justice ahead of the 2016 race for the White House.
The private conversations raised serious questions over the FBI’s handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server as well as the probe into Russian collusion during the 2016 election.
BOMBSHELL: Secret TEXTS Show FBI, DOJ May Have RUSHED Anti-Trump FISA Warrant
An explosive new report from Sara Carter shows the FBI and the Department of Justice may have inappropriately coordinated with senior Obama officials in securing a FISA warrant against top Trump officials ahead of the 2016 race for the White House.
Newly discovered texts between anti-Trump officials inside the DOJ show a high-level of cooperation in obtaining a FISA warrant against former Trump associate Carter Page.
“Text messages obtained by investigators reveal that FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his colleague Lisa Page were discussing the FBI’s difficulty in obtaining the warrant to spy on Carter Page, who worked for a short stint with the Trump campaign. The FBI obtained its first warrant to spy on Page on Oct. 19, 2016, and there would be three subsequent renewals every 90 days for the warrant on Mr. Page,” writes Carter.
“The communications, which were first released last week and obtained by congressional investigators, occurred roughly one month before the Page warrant was obtained. The communications suggested that there was possible coordination by Obama White House officials, the CIA and the FBI into the investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign,” she adds.
