Will America ever be rid of the Clintons and stories about their interns?
Fox News is reporting that ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, whose Trump-bashing texts made it clear who she backed in the 2016 presidential election, refers in a newly revealed message to serving as an intern “under Clinton.”
Page, who exchanged tens of thousands of texts with disgraced FBI official Peter Strzok, revealed the information in one message among a new batch exclusively obtained by Fox News.
“Get inspired and depressing reading that article about how Obama approached the mail room,” Page wrote Strzok on Jan. 19, 2017 – the last day of the Obama administration. “Needless to say, it was very different when I interned there under Clinton.”
The article they were discussing was a Jan. 17, 2017 story in the New York Times Magazine entitled “To Obama With Love, and Hate, and Desperation,” which described eight years of mail that poured through the mailroom.
In the text message exchange, Strzok tried to engage Page in a discussion about her time in the internship.
“How was it different?” he replied.
“Will have to talk in person,” answered Page. “It’s hard to describe. More of a rote have to respond to the mail exercise.”
It was not clear who exactly Page interned for or what she did. Page, 39, attended American University in Washington in the late 1990s, studying public affairs and earning her bachelor’s degree in 2000.
The official presidential archives for the Clinton administration could not confirm that Page interned at the White House, telling Fox News they typically keep records on full-time White House staff only.
Through her attorney, Page declined Fox News’ request for comment.
In mid-July, GOP lawmakers questioned the anti-Trump former FBI lawyer. Most of them felt she was more cooperative than her counter-part and lover, former FBI agent Peter Strzok. Not everyone, however, was willing to let the Democrat operative off the hook, Rep Louis Gohmert (R-TX) told “FOX & Friends” that Lisa Page gave them “more insights to who was involved in what.”
“She’s a more contrite person,” said Gohmert. “But make no mistake, she’s a Democrat, she wanted Hillary to win and she did not want Trump to win, and that’s been obvious.”
