Lisa Page, the Ex-FBI Lawyer whose text messages two years ago criticized President Trump during his 2016 candidacy has broken her silence. Her silence being broken is following her being frequently targeted by President Trump’s conspiracy smears.

Ever since Page’s name made news stories in 2016 she has remained silent on the matter. However, in a recent interview conducted by The Daily Beast, she has broken her silence on extraordinarily peculiar grounds:

“Honestly, his demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel’s back, Page told The Daily Beast.

What she is referring to is President Trump imitating her at a Minneapolis rally on October 11th, 2019, where he acted out an orgasm in front of a crowd.

Essentially, President Trump’s notorious aptitude to troll is what drew Lisa Page to speak out. “My heart dropped to my stomach when I realized he has tweeted about me again.” President Trump has tweeted about Page at least 36 times.

Getting accused of treason by the President is no laughing matter to Page. Indeed, according to Lisa Page its extremely important to hold the President accountable for such accusations, especially –according to her– if such allegations are false.

Furthermore, although Republicans have generally gravitated towards the Trumpian narrative regarding Page, when she testified to Congress Republican Rep. Mark Meadows referred to her as “a very credible witness“, which goes starkly against such a narrative.

“It’s very painful to see to places like the FBI and the Department of Justice that represent so much of what is excellent about this country, not fulfilling the critical obligation that they have to speak truth to power,” she told The Daily Beast. “The thing about the FBI that is so extraordinary is that it is made up of a group of men and women whose every instinct is to run toward the fight. It’s in the fiber of everybody there. It’s the lifeblood. So it’s particularly devastating to be betrayed by an organization I still care about so deeply. And it’s crushing to see the noble Justice Department, my Justice Department, the place I grew up in, feel like it’s abandoned its principles of truth and independence.”
