Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page was thrust into the national spotlight in late 2017 when text messages between her and then-senior FBI agent Peter Strzok became public.

"When Lisa Page, the lover of Peter Strzok, talks about being "crushed", [sic] and how innocent she is, ask her to read Peter's "Insurance policy" text, to her, just in case Hillary loses".

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". "Where are they Lisa?"

Ms Page, who investigated Mr Trump and Hillary Clinton in 2016, said she had found his remarks "sickening".

Page, who bashed Trump in text messages to her special-agent boyfriend Peter Strzok, told The Daily Beast that she finally made a decision to speak out after the president acted out a fake orgasm to mock her texts with Strzok during an October rally in Minneapolis.

Page's interview came one week before a report from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is expected to exonerate Page of acting with political bias against the president while working at the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

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".

"Page is quoted saying something about how she chose to speak out (not because the IG report is about to make her and her cohorts look bad) but because Trump faked an orgasm to mock her for her infidelities ..." The President has frequently criticized the series of texts in which Page and Strzok disparaged the then-presidential candidate. When the president accuses you of treason by name, despite the fact that I know there's no fathomable way I've committed any crime at all, he's still somebody in a position to actually do something about that, to try to further destroy my life.

Trump has yet to comment on the Daily Beast interview. Maybe Lisa Page did, but I just took it as an overly lovey dovey conversation between Lisa Page & Peter Strzok.

She surfaced on Sunday, tweeting a link to her interview with the caption: "I'm done being quiet".

"It never goes away or stops, even when he's not publicly attacking me", she added.

Page said the most painful part of her experience was not just how the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation abandoned her but rather that they have failed to fulfill "the critical obligation that they have to speak truth to power".

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

"It's like being punched in the gut". "But having an opinion and sharing that opinion publicly or privately with another person is squarely within the permissible bounds of the Hatch Act. I really appreciate your time and edits", he concluded. 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.

Both Mr Strzok and Ms Page investigated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016 over her use of a private email server to handle classified information during her time as USA secretary of state.

Mr Strzok and Ms Page were removed from the inquiry once their August 2016 messages came to light.

In their text messages, Page and Strzok expressed animus toward Trump, spoke of stopping him from becoming president, discussed an "insurance policy" in the "unlikely event" he won the presidency and mulled "impeachment" after the appointment of special counsel Mueller.
