Imagine viewing yourself as the victim for deserved criticism in response to your conduct, and moreover, your political and professional conduct that jeopardizes corrupts and undermines our system of government. And then imagine a “seasoned” attorney who views your actions as totally normal.
First, let me start with Weissmann. According to Wikipedia:
Andrew Weissmann is an American attorney. Since 2015 he has been the chief of the criminal fraud section of the U.S. Department of Justice. In June 2017, he was appointed to a management role on the 2017 special counsel team headed by Robert Mueller. To assume that position, Weissmann took a leave from his DOJ post.
Please do yourself a favor and take time to listen to this joke of an interview of Andrew Weissmann, by MSNBC.
Andrew Weissman claims "Lisa Page has done nothing wrong"
Page was fired from Mueller's team
The last IG report found she and Strzok's behavior was "antithetical to the core values of the FBI" when they vowed to stop @realDonaldTrump
What will the next one find? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/Ev0JdoffM0

Seriously Mr. Weissmann? Are you telling America that Page’s illegal editing of 302s and making up criminal predicates is legit? Because from the reading I’ve done on Sidney Powell’s work (General Flynn’s legal counsel), that’s what Page and Strzok did.
At this point, who cares about their texts? Their mocked “orgasm texts” are a moot point if it is true that these two lovers edited 302s to frame General Michael Flynn — any lawyer including yourself, Mr. Weissmann, should know that agents and prosecutors who do that have seriously broken the law. But, Mr. Weissmann, I’m sure you’ve never encountered such a thing, even with all of your work on the Enron cases back in the day, before you helped write the Mueller Report over the past three years…but I digress. I’m no lawyer, so I’ll leave it up to Horowitz and Durham and maybe Barr to hit it home for you.

As for Lisa Page and her decision to finally speak out with none other than The Daily Beast. It’s a joke. One BIG disgusting joke. Page and Strzok worked in a cohesive effort that came close to destroying our republic, but now, she tries to play the victim card. And some in the media are trying to help her pull it off.
In my opinion, Page AND The Daily Beast, both define the word pathetic. Apparently, Page decided to speak out (not because the IG report is about to make her and her cohorts look bad) because Trump made her look bad when he mocked her texts. Any media company that now clings to Page’s pity cry is more pathetic than she is. And I’m finding it hard to come up with anything other than just that. P A T H E T I C.
Obstruction anyone? (Wink, wink.)
When Lisa Page, the lover of Peter Strzok, talks about being “crushed”, and how innocent she is, ask her to read Peter’s “Insurance Policy” text, to her, just in case Hillary loses. Also, why were the lovers text messages scrubbed after he left Mueller. Where are they Lisa?

"The damage caused by these employees' (@LisaPage, Strzok) actions extends far beyond the scope of the Midyear Investigation and goes to the heart of the FBI's reputation for neutral fact finding and political independence"– IG Horowitz 2018 report…. Nuff said!!!! @GenFlynn https://t.co/mLbajNPUdg

Let me get this straight.
Page and Strzok sent texts about an “insurance policy” and how they’ll “stop Trump” while part of the FBI spying on Trump campaign.
Now Lisa Page is blaming the President. 1 week before Horowitz’s FISA report.https://t.co/DqPAV4c6o3

“Really, what I wanted most in this world is my life back.” You know who else wants their life back? General Flynn, George Papadopoulos, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, and all of the other people your bullshit harmed. Spare me. https://t.co/KONuYRv8b1

In the Daily Beast’s exclusive interview, Molly Jong-Fast writes:
She doesn’t think for a minute that her texts with Peter Strzok are too political. They are largely devoted to work and to talking about family members and various articles they read. The few texts that so convulsed the Republicans involved Page asking for reassurance that Trump wouldn’t become president, and Strzok replying with “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.” Glenn Kessler wrote in The Washington Post that “some of the texts reflect a deep animus toward Trump and the way he conducted himself during the 2016 campaign.”
Having an opinion and sharing that opinion publicly or privately with another person is squarely within the permissible bounds of the Hatch Act.
The era of Trump populism always had an ugly edge, particularly toward women. Trump revels in bringing misery to his opponents and will always seek out and exploit any weakness. Page “wasn’t nice to him,” and so in his eyes she can be endlessly targeted and assaulted.
It’s tempting to describe this as just part of Trump’s deep, baked-in misogyny and sociopathy, but in Page’s case it’s worse; it’s a sign of how deeply he’s corrupted the government to serve his will and his whims. His apologists have become part of Trump’s own squad of witch-hunters, hunting fantasies like “Ukrainian interference” while attacking the people who tried to protect us from Russian attacks.
It’s not just that Lisa Page may never be safe as long as Trump is president.
It’s that we won’t be safe, either.
Many are observing this “interesting” take from Molly Jong-Fast. I wonder if she asked Page about what “Wal-Mart people smell like,” because this puff piece from the Daily Beast smells like a lot of bull. Is this why Nunes recently said the Daily Beast and CNN would soon be running for cover? Time will tell.
