Former FBI attorney Lisa Page sued the DOJ and FBI, accusing her former employers of violating her right to privacy by illegally leaking a cache of text messages she sent with fired FBI agent Peter Strzok, who she engaged in an extramarital affair with.
I sued the Department of Justice and FBI today.
I take little joy in having done so. But what they did in leaking my messages to the press was not only wrong, it was illegal.https://t.co/ecR58rmxlB

Page’s lawsuit accuses the DOJ and FBI of violating the Privacy Act by “unlawfully” releasing text message exchanges between her and fired FBI agent Peter Strzok, who she engaged in an extramarital affair with while at the bureau. She and Strzok were involved in the investigation of failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails, and of the probe into the 2016 Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia. In her lawsuit, the former FBI attorney further claims President Donald Trump used the messages to impugn her character, which she says has garnered her “unwanted media attention that has radically altered her day-to-day life.”
Messages between Strzok and Page showed the pair repeatedly criticizing then-candidate Donald Trump and his supporters, prompting Strzok’s removal from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. “Their discussion of an “insurance” policy has fueled suspicion among Trump supporters that the agency intended to remove Trump from office if he won,” Breitbart News has previously reported.
The development comes after Page spoke out for the first time in a sympathetic interview with the Daily Beast. Her remarks were published ahead of the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report into alleged abuses by FBI in its handling of the Trump-Russia probe. More
You used a government owned device for personal business. Not too bright there. Burner phones aren’t that expensive if you don’t want to get caught having an affair with a coworker. 🤷♀️

Lisa Page is complaining about targeted leaks to the press when she and Peter Strzok were responsible for leaks to the media to damage POTUS. They actually discussed via text several of the articles and about talking to “Andy” regarding the info they leaked. If the hypocrisy of the left wasn’t so sad, it’d be hysterical!
Excellent. You’ll be further discredited and humiliated.
