Trump target blasts his 'orgasm' mockery of her

President Donald Trump issued his first jab at Lisa Page since the former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer chose to speak out against his repeated attacks on her.

The messages between Page and Strzok have been cited by Trump and congressional Republicans as evidence of alleged political bias at the FBI and Justice Department during the investigations of interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and Hillary Clinton's handling of emails when she was secretary of state. At least one FBI lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, is now subject to a criminal investigation for allegedly altering a record related to the surveillance of Page - and lawyer John Durham is also conducting a criminal inquiry into the origins of the Russian Federation investigation, which began life as a mere administrative review.

The results of an internal Justice Department investigation are expected to be released on December 9 and according to news reports will clear the FBI and its top officials of acting to influence the election. At the center of it were two Federal Bureau of Investigation employees, Page and Peter Strzok, who the president has repeatedly publicly threatened, mocked, and claimed they committed treasonous and seditious acts.

Page said that she chose to speak publicly after a Trump rally on October 11 in Minneapolis in which Trump made crude comments referencing her affair with Strzok.

"Peter, oh, I love you so much".

"Like, when somebody makes eye contact with me on the Metro, I kind of wince, wondering if it's because they recognize me, or are they just scanning the train like people do?" she said.

"I had stayed quiet for years hoping it would fade away, but instead it got worse", she says. "It had been very hard not to defend myself, to let the people who hate me control the narrative". Maybe Lisa Page did, but I just took it as an overly lovey dovey conversation between Lisa Page & Peter Strzok.

"It's like being punched in the gut", Page told the Daily Beast, referencing Trump's broadsides. My heart drops to my stomach when I realize he has tweeted about me again. He's demeaning me and my career. "It never goes away or stops, even when he's not publicly attacking me", she despaired.

Meanwhile, Horowitz's report has been leaked to several outlets, including The Washington Post.

Media captionTrump impersonates ex-FBI agent's messages with lawyer Lisa Page What did Lisa Page say?

Molly Jong-Fast, who profiled Page for The Daily Beast, responded to Trump's tweet by saying "I don't think he read the piece".

An ex-FBI lawyer has broken her silence after being ridiculed by Donald Trump amid his claims of a so-called deep state plot to undermine his presidency. "And that's when I become the source of the president's personal mockery and insults".

In one text, Ms Page called then-candidate Trump "a loathsome human", and Mr Strzok labelled him "an idiot".

Ms Page maintained she did not break any rules in the private text messages, adding: "I don't engage in any sort of partisan politicking at all".

What she was anxious about at the time, however, was that an official investigation into her texts would reveal a "deeply personal secret": her affair with Strzok. Page resigned after the text messages were discovered.

"I wish it didn't", she said. And as her texts show, she's hardly in the camp of Trump friendlies.

"They lack a lot of context", she said. Additionally, why have been the lovers textual content messages scrubbed after he left Mueller.

"We were very deliberate and conservative about who we first opened on because we recognized how sensitive a situation it was", Page told The Daily Beast.
