In an OP-ED for The Hill journalist, John Solomon revealed that Lisa Page told lawmakers behind closed doors that the FBI had no proof of Trump Russia collusion when they started Robert Mueller’s probe.
Rather, it might be eight simple words she uttered behind closed doors during a congressional interview a few weeks ago.
â€œItâ€™s a reflection of us still not knowing,â€ Page told Rep.Â John RatcliffeÂ (R-Texas) when questioned about texts she and Strzok exchanged in May 2017 asÂ Robert MuellerÂ was being named aÂ special prosecutorÂ to take over the Russia investigation.
With that statement, Page acknowledged a momentous fact: After nine months of using some of the most awesome surveillance powers afforded to U.S. intelligence, the FBI still had not made a case connecting Trump or his campaign to Russiaâ€™s election meddling.
Page opined further, acknowledging â€œit still existed in the scope of possibility that there would be literally nothingâ€ to connect Trump and Russia, no matter what Mueller or the FBI did.
â€œAs far as May of 2017, we still couldnâ€™t answer the question,â€ she said at another point.
I reached out to Page’s lawyer, Amy Jeffress, on Friday. She declined to answer questions about herÂ clientâ€™s cooperation with Congress.
