One of the infamous FBI agents whose texts were released and aroused suspicion of a “deep state” conspiracy orchestrated against President Trump resigned Friday.
The New York Times reported that Page resigned from the FBI Friday, as did James A. Baker, a confidante of James Comey.
Lisa Page was an advisor to James Comey during his time as the FBI director, and served under Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
Lisa Page has been suspected of participating in a covert effort to undermine the president and his political agenda because of the content discovered in her texts to fellow FBI agent Peter Strzok, whom she was having an affair with.
In December, texts released from Page and Strzok showed their animosity against Trump, including some calling him “a loathsome human being” and “an idiot.”
Another text released in December was read by many as an admission that there was a plot at the FBI to undermine Trump’s presidency.
…in a text from August 15, 2016, Strzok tells Page: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office” — an apparent reference to Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe — “that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40 . . . . ” Page does not appear to have responded, according to records reviewed by CNN.
Page’s paramour Strzok was demoted from special counsel’s investigation into Russian interference and alleged collusion with the Trump campaign when the anti-Trump texts were discovered.
