Yes, America, we are still waiting to find out whether or not Robert Mueller and his band of merry pranksters will actually have anything to show for themselves once this whole #RussiaGate nonsense ends.
Of course, if you happen to be paying attention, you’ll know that at least two further congressional investigations into the matter have bother turned in reports claiming that there was “no collusion” between the Donald Trump campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Still, however, Mueller meanders onward and outward, spreading his investigatory tentacles into the nooks and crannies of the President’s personal life, scraping together a handful of process charges that he hopes to use as a crowbar to flip these peons into spilling the beans.
But, so far, even with the power of the federal government behind him for over a year…nothing.
In the midst of this wild goose chase, it was discovered that Mueller’s team wasn’t exactly impartial, either, after a pair of adulterous FBI agents were discovered working on the case whose text messages displayed a clear and undeniable bias against the President, and a willingness to do whatever it takes to see him toppled from the West Wing.
Now, one of these agents has told congress that she plans to defy their subpoena to testify about her time in the Mueller probe.
An attorney for ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page said late Tuesday that she would not show up for a private interview on Wednesday with two House committees — despite being subpoenaed to appear.
“Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time,” attorney Amy Jeffress said in a statement, claiming that Page did not have enough time to prepare. Jeffress said she had asked the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees to reschedule Page.
Page and Peter Strzok, a former FBI agent, exchanged texts saying that they would stop Donald Trump from winning the 2016 election. The two were having an extramarital affair and both were members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation team, as well as the probe into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
The President wasn’t impressed.
I am on Air Force One flying to NATO and hear reports that the FBI lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are getting cold feet on testifying about the Rigged Witch Hunt headed by 13 Angry Democrats and people that worked for Obama for 8 years. Total disgrace!

Reports have since surfaced that Lisa Page would be willing to testify “later this month”…A peculiar statement indeed. Does it mean that this former FBI lawyer knows something that we don’t?
Page, who most certainly still has inside sources at the Bureau, may know of an impending maneuver by Robert Mueller that could keep her out of the hot seat, but the statement of “later this month” would indicate something imminent.
Given what we’ve seen so far of the Mueller probe, “imminent” may not be a word in their vocabulary.
