Page's attorney told Fox News on Tuesday that despite being subpoenaed, Page won't appear for a private interview with the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, who issued the subpoena for Page to be interviewed, said in a statement that she has known for months that the committee wants to speak with her and has "no excuse for her failure to appear". "Congressional subpoenas for testimony are not optional".

"There is no basis for claims that Lisa has anything to hide or is unwilling to testify", she said, adding that the Oversight and Judiciary committees' "bullying tactics here are unnecessary".

Page was schedule to testify before Congress Wednesday. It's mandatory. She needs to comply'.

Page and FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, with whom she was having an extramarital affair, have been a target of congressional Republicans critical of the agency's investigations into Hillary Clinton's email server and possible Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Trump has seized on Page and Strzok's inflammatory texts, which were detailed in a report by the Justice Department's internal watchdog last month, to paint the FBI and Mueller's investigation as biased.




"Lisa and I went to the Federal Bureau of Investigation today to review the materials that were previously produced to Congress relating to her proposed interview, but after waiting for more than three hours, we were not provided with any documents", Jeffress said.

The decision not to appear for Wednesday's scheduled deposition is sure to provoke a response from the committee, which could move to hold her in contempt of Congress.

"Through her actions and words, Lisa has made it abundantly clear that she will cooperate with this investigation". House Republicans have suggested the Federal Bureau of Investigation was conspiring against Trump during and after his presidential campaign, and the two committees are investigating decisions made by the agency and the Justice Department during the election. The pair exchanged texts sharply critical of Donald Trump when he was running for president in 2016. However, on Tuesday, Page showed signs of cold feet when her lawyer, Amy Jeffress, issued a statement complaining about Committee staff. He is slated to appear in a hearing open to the public on Thursday, according to The Washington Examiner. President Trump has seized on the Strzok and Page's texts to denounce the Mueller probe as nothing more than a "witch hunt".

Strzok was removed from Mueller's team when the texts were discovered a year ago. Page had already left the team.

Strzok was questioned for 11 hours over his role and alleged bias in a closed hearing of the two committees two weeks ago.
