"He's demeaning me and my career", she said.
Page's interview comes just ahead of the planned December 9 release of a report from the Justice Department inspector general on how the FBI conducted its investigation into Trump associates and Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Here's a woman with a known talent for lying - how else to describe someone who successfully, day after day, engages in an adulterous affair? - and who served in her Federal Bureau of Investigation legal position with a "biased state of mind" with a possible "willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate's electoral prospects", is how the Justice Department's inspector general, Michael Horowitz, put it, in reference to his conclusion about the Page-Strzok texts.
Special counsel Robert Mueller removed Strzok from the Russian Federation investigation in late July 2017 upon learning of his text messages. Page criticized President Donald Trump in the interview and called his attack on her "disgusting". A few texts later, Strzok confirmed he made Page's requested edits, stating he also emailed her "an updated 302".
"When the president accuses you of treason by name, despite the fact that I know there's no fathomable way that I have committed any crime at all, let alone treason, he's still somebody in a position to actually do something about that". Instead, Jong-Fast paints her as a purely innocent victim of Trump's "baked-in misogyny and sociopathy" whose life was somehow "destroyed". She even flees from people on the street wearing Trump shirts or MAGA hats, "because I'm not looking for conflict", she told the Beast.More news: New ‘Strandhogg’ vulnerability targeting Android users discovered
The Beast interview appears to be the latest chapter in that support, seeking to shape the narrative ahead of next week's release of the DOJ inspector-general's report looking into the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Mueller's probe of Trump.
This story was first published on CNN.com, "Ex-FBI lawyer targeted by Trump breaks silence." .
For his part, Attorney General William Barr stated earlier this year he believed "spying did occur" on the Trump campaign, and its justification and legitimacy was potentially questionable. The prosecutor, John Durham, has reportedly recently shifted the inquiry into a criminal investigation. "Keep in mind, Strzok and Page, and the Democrat and the DC media's argument is, 'yeah they were biased, yeah they said awful things, but it had no impact on the outcome.' In other words, Trump was treated fairly in the end", said Gowdy.
Page and Strzok were having an affair around the 2016 election, and their private conversations about Trump became the center of a swirl of conspiracies for the past three years.
"[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right?".
The texts were uncovered during a Department of Justice inspector general investigation. "And she has quite a lot to say", reads the subhead.More news: NYT Defends Bloomberg News After They Get Banned From Trump Campaign Events
Trump and Republicans have seized on the texts as evidence of political bias.
"Now the Democrats are saying even though there were no investigations of the server or the Bidens, and even though the aid was released, they're now hyper-focused on the process!"
"Honestly, his demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel's back", she told The Daily Beast. The Justice Department did not respond to a request for comment. "And it's crushing to see the noble Justice Department - my Justice Department, the place I grew up in - feel like it's abandoned its principles of truth and independence". "We will have to keep fighting for every bit of ground we get". It's in the fiber of everybody there.
"It's particularly devastating to be betrayed by an organization I still care about so deeply", she said.
In his texts to Page, Strzok referred to Trump as an "idiot" and a "douche". The device then went missing for 14 months before another DOJ unit located it and turned it over to the inspector general, who was unable to recover any data. Leaked press accounts indicate that the report will exonerate Page of the allegation that she acted unprofessionally or showed bias against Trump.More news: Putin signs law requiring smartphones to have Russian apps
