Lisa Page is no Monica Lewinsky

Page was thrust into the national spotlight with the disclosure of text messages she exchanged with then-FBI agent Peter Strzok critical of Trump when he was a presidential candidate.

And of what does she choose to speak?

Actress and leftist activist Alyssa Milano melted down late Monday night, lamenting how "fucking upsetting" it is that her 8-year-old son can't listen to President Donald Trump speak "because our President is inappropriate, misogynistic and unpresidential".

She said that she is anxious if someone makes eye contact with her on public transport, and that she tries to steer clear of anybody wearing a MAGA hat, to reduce her chances of coming into conflict with a Trump supporter, pointing out that it is "very intimidating because he's still the president of the United States".

She described being intimidated and concerned for her safety but said she was determined not to remain silent any longer in face of the accusations.

What a hoot. Last time the American public was treated to such damsel in distress pleadings was in 1998, when media and attorneys alike swirled and swooned over a blue dress and the finger-wagging of a president named Bill Clinton. She also does not ask about reports Page also carried on an affair with McCabe, even though Page mentions McCabe's large role in her career advancement in the piece.

Page is hardly a fresh-faced newbie, naive in the ways of politics, unschooled of the goings-on of Deep State style strategizing.

"Those texts were selected for their political impact", she said.

Now she's striking the innocent pose.

The headline on the story by Molly Jong-Fast indicates accurately the level of responsibility Page takes for her actions.

Facebook is facing a backlash because it did not become a member of Twitter, which stopped accepting political ads last month. Requested in regards to the letter through the CBS interview , Zuckerberg stated "this is clearly a very complex issue".

"It had been so hard not to defend myself, to let people who hate me control the narrative", Page said. Maybe Lisa Page did, but I just took it as an overly lovey dovey conversation between Lisa Page & Peter Strzok.

"He's demeaning me and my career", she said.

The former FBI lawyer is, at the very least, someone whose unprofessional behavior compromised the integrity of an investigation into the president.

"And when the president accuses you of treason by name, despite the fact that I know there's no fathomable way that I have committed any crime at all, let alone treason, he's still somebody in a position to actually do something about that", she told the site.

Communications between Strzok and Page have also been cited in legal filings by the lawyers of Michael Flynn, who contend they show Page, then-Special Counsel to Deputy Director McCabe, edited the details of Flynn's 302 - the form used by Federal Bureau of Investigation operatives to report or summarise interviews they conduct - to falsely incriminate him. "And now she wants to say she's a victim".

"The inspector general was unable to recover text messages Strzok and Page may have sent using iPhones they were given when they joined Mueller's team".

"Honestly, his demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel's back", Page told the Daily Beast. According to the Daily Beast, Page left the Federal Bureau of Investigation in May 2018. It's ongoing. It's not a historical event that is being relived. It just keeps happening. "And that's when I become the source of the president's personal mockery and insults".

All that said though, if you are willing to declare Trump wasn't faking an orgasm there, it means you'd have to then say you have a different version of what an orgasm really looks like to the president.

"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", Page said.

"It's particularly devastating to be betrayed by an organization I still care about so deeply", she said.
