When they bring in Page and Strzok, they need to bring in Strzok's wife as well.

You don't get to be tutored before you appear pursuant to a subpoena. Too funny some woman who can't shut up must now admit to her bias. Ha!

Failure to appear when subpoenaed is actually a criminal offense, jail her and do what you need to with her behind bars. Have her lawyer come in and be present keep it legal, but at the end of the day she is a criminal now. a corrupt DOJ/FBI wont do anything about it though so burn them both down and start over. clean house and rebuild from the ground up. bar them all from federal jobs ever again.

Funny how CBS puts their SPIN on this at the first part of this report and ends with defending his character as a public servant at the end ! WTF !

The interrogator asks Page, “What does this text say.” I guess the best answer would be, “What, can’t you read.” I’m sorry but text messages don’t have some deep hidden meaning. What’s happening is a witness is to appear before the house for blood sport. It’s a case of sick public entertainment.

Here's another example of the elitist left thinking that laws do not apply to them. Drag her into Congress wearing handcuffs and a orange jumpsuit.

So basically she wants to know why she recieved a subpoena for private messages, what the accusation is and how it will be prosecuted...it's not like she's choosing her own judges and jury

I wouldn't respond to the subpoena without specific questions that will be asked, just like Chump.

Cuff her
Strip her
Spray her with delice
Cavity search
Jail her
Then bring her in to court to discuss the matter!

Any questions!
I thought not....



That is what would happen to U & I

“GOP subpoenas.” No. They are Congressional subpoenas. If Democrats try to throw this out and we no longer honor subpoenas then guess what? even in the event of a blue wave, you’re not going to get a real Trump investigation

What is she worried about? Does she have to prepare to lie??!!! If u have nothing to hide.. then testify !!!!!

Nothing will be done. They will close everything out. There will be no arrests made, there will be no indictments made. It will be just like nothing ever happened. A couple of people may lose their jobs, but that will be about it.

It just shows women cannot progress in a career without some form of sexual misconduct leading to a planned out sexual harassment case in a near future!

I bet you. This scandal had two ways to go if one or the other did not agree to certain terms!
Fred Ball
Fred Ball:
Fake news...it's a CONGRESSIONAL subpoena. If the DEM/SOCIALISTS were in charge you can bet that's what it would be titled. Jail that cheating chick in solitary...like they've done to Manafort. All I know is the average legal American cannot get away with this kind of defiance of American law.

Paula Reid is biasly attempting to make this story true because the GOP says it's true as opposed to talking about the facts how one FBI agent alone did not Scuttle Hillary Clinton's investigation in order to help Trump be elected which is the LIE they pretend is not being passed around

Can't believe your reporting this! Fox has been reporting it for almost 2 years.

Nothing burger but proof of a deep state to Trump and supporters.

4th amendment protects her from unlawful prosecution search and seizure which would defend her because this would be a kangaroo court type hearing
Jeannie Cole
Jeannie Cole:
She WROTE the text messages, not someone else, posing as her. Her messages of improper conduct, against the wishes of the American Electorate, who lawfully elected Trump, were between her and Strzok and no one else. They are responsible for their own actions and misconduct. No one else!
Dylan Calewarts
Dylan Calewarts:
Don Jr, Jared, all the people we need Congressional oversight of will all just refuse subpoenas now that there is this precedent. Congratulations Democrats

I'd have refused it, too. It's not like the republo's will be honest OR forthright.

hold on.... she could smell Trump supporters in Walmart? I beg to differ.... there's plenty of Clinton(Bill or Hillary) supporters in Walmart as well. Not to mention the random Bernie supporters as well. I can provide photo proof if required. (in the form of videos captures by my dash cam inside Walmart parking lots... I've seen plenty of Trump, Hillary, and even Bernie stickers)

Why should she answer any of their questions. The ones asking the questions are more corrupt than anyone else.
