Sometimes it’s better to stay quiet, especially when the timing is so suspect, right ahead of the explosive report due out next week.

Lisa Page uses 'Trump-hating writer' to break silence ahead of IG report
By Brian Flood | Fox News

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page broke her silence in a highly sympathetic profile published late Sunday by The Daily Beast, but critics argue she might have actually hurt her case by going to a well-known "Trump-hating writer" to tell her story ahead of a looming Justice Department inspector general report.

Page famously carried on an extramarital affair with former FBI head of counterintelligence Peter Strzok as the two exchanged anti-Trump text messages. Page claims that she decided to talk because she needed to regain control of her narrative, but conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that Page’s interview does the exact opposite of what she intended.

“Nothing says ‘I did nothing wrong’ like giving an interview to a Trump-hating writer at a Trump-hating outlet,” Barron said wryly. “She is either very stupid, very guilty or a combination of both. Either way, it’s a terrible look.”

Daily Beast contributor Molly Jong-Fast, who landed Page’s first interview and penned the piece, is an accomplished author but hardly a nonpartisan reporter. Jong-Fast, the daughter of author Erica Jong, regularly criticizes the president and has called his 2016 shock victory over Hillary Clinton “the worst night” of her life.

“I actually cried, and I’m not a crier. I don’t give a f--k about anything. I cried every day. It was mostly because I was angry, because I thought it was so f--king pathetic,” Jong-Fast told Interview Magazine in June.

Jong-Fast frequently mocks Trump on Twitter, hosts high-profile political dinner parties and has expressed support for South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the 2020 election. The majority of her previous Daily Beast stories were labeled opinion pieces, with headlines such as “Fiona Hill’s unapologetic anger is what we need right now,” “Katie Hill, victim of uptight Baby Boomer values” and “Donald Trump is misogyny’s poster child.” The page item is labeled simply "Exclusive."

Jong-Fast authored three books about being a privileged socialite in New York City but pivoted to liberal punditry once Trump took office. She now contributes to anti-Trump site The Bulwark, in addition to The Daily Beast. She also called Strzok "hawt" in a tweet last year and is friends with Kathy Griffin, the comedian known for a controversial photoshoot in which she held up a fake severed head of President Trump.

“If Page really wanted to make the case that she ‘did nothing wrong’ she should have chosen an objective reporter at an outlet that is less ideologically driven,” Barron said.

Jong-Fast told Fox News she has “interviewed a lot of Trump's victims -- E. Jean Carrol -- because I write about feminist issues” when asked for comment on backlash to Page selecting a partisan writer, as opposed to a traditional journalist.

Carroll filed a lawsuit against President Trump earlier this month, accusing him of defamation over his response to her allegation that he raped her in a department store dressing room in the 1990s. White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham called the lawsuit "frivolous" in response.

Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News the profile was “hilarious” but said the mainstream media will presumably side with Page because of her “Never Trump” status.

“It was hard to tell who was more ridiculous, Lisa Page or the author who happens to be Bulwark contributor Molly Jong-Fast. We know how Page acted. We've seen the texts she and lover agent Peter Strzok sent to one another,” Gainor said. “But she must think the reports coming out will make her look worse than she already does, so she appears to be trying to get sympathetic press ahead of time.”

Citing, “leaked press accounts,” Jong-Fast wrote that the upcoming IG report will “exonerate Page of the allegation that she acted unprofessionally or showed bias against Trump.”

Jong-Fast then asked, “How does it feel after all this time to finally have the IG apparently affirm what she’s been saying all along?” Page is praised throughout the piece, noting that she is “thin and athletic,” speaks confidently and even refers to her as a victim.

Despite criticizing Jong-Fast, Gainor doesn’t think that Page would be taken seriously regardless of who she sat down with for her first high-profile interview.

“Let's face it, both left and right see Page as a partisan. She wasn't going to go to a conservative outlet with her whine because they would have hit her with tough questions. And all that would have done is antagonize her buddies in the press,” he said.

The profile has polarized Twitter, with Trump critics praising the “brave” Page while others have condemned the profile as a puff piece.

Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway called the story a “woe is me” piece about how Page feels she is “the real victim in the Russia hoax” and mocked the former FBI lawyer for claiming she spoke out partially because Trump faked an org@sm during a dramatic reading of her damning text messages during an October rally.

“As for the rest of the piece, I'm about as impressed with it as I am all of the other attempts to pre-dump before the IG report,” Hemingway wrote on Twitter. “Maybe their claims that they'll be completely exonerated for all of their actions are 100 percent true. But, given their track record, I'm skeptical.”

The Federalist’s Benjamin Weingarten tweeted that Jong-Fast’s profile refuses “to grapple with any of the litany of issues concerning the conduct of Lisa Page” while simultaneously “trying to make her a sympathetic victim coincidentally on eve of IG report” speaks for itself.

Cheiny, when you cut and paste articles, can you please edit out the superfluous bits (ads, links to other articles etc.) it makes reading your posts really distracting.

Thanks

Ukraine is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. That's why Trump held up aid.

Trump ALSO wants Ukraine to investigate a former US vice president. Because we turn to corrupt countries to investigate citizens for us.

Does that sound like an innocent president to you?

I've read this three times and I have no idea what I'm supposed to be up in arms about. That she had an extramarital affair (like Trump did, but he did it with a p0rn star on his pregnant wife?) That this journalist called someone "hawt" (like Trump said he grabs women by the pvssy?) That she gave an interview to a partisan source, instead of the extremely balanced and nonpartisan Fox News (I cannot emphasize my sarcasm here enough)? I'm not even being facetious, I don't understand what the story is.

She also never pantomimed Trump climaxing before a cheering crowd, so there's that.

I saw the video too. It was weird and creepy and completely inappropriate.

She had an extramarital affair and didn't like Trump. That's it. That's her crime. If you believe she is corrupt show the evidence.

Trump clearly cares because he can't stop tweeting about her. He has an obsession.

Yes. The Peter Strzok - Lisa Page texts really exposed to Americans the treason of the Deep State - unelected bureaucrats who use their power to undermine the Constitution and the American People.

In the texts, these NON-PARTISAN (sarc) "public servants" insulted half of Americans (Republicans) saying he could "smell" them.

Page: Trump is an enormous douche...Trump is a loathsome human..omg Trump's an idiot...Trump's not ever going to be President, Right?

Strzok: No he won't. We [FBI] will stop it.....We have an Insurance Policy

Yes, Trump is innocent.. When the corruption involves other countries than the countries involved do the investigating. We have a TREATY with Ukraine that they will help us in investigating corruption.

SHEESH! How Democrats falsely accuse Trump for doing his job!

Trump was being his immature self at the rallies. He s done it before.

I believe her text msg show corruption. They were texting how they were going to use their FBI position to make sure trump isn't elected. FBI agents need to (pretend) to be impartial

You believe?

How did they plan to use their FBI position to make sure Trump wasn't elected? What was the plan?

The FBI at this point had someone alter information to get the fisa. We know that someone is in trouble for that.

We will find out next week what went on and she may or may not be guilty. Either way she definitely should definitely not be working. She is supposed to be impartial.

They were already criticized by the IG. They did not use their position correctly. I will wait for the full report to tell you more.

But if Trump thought Ukraine was really truly so awfully terribly corrupt, why trust them to run an investigation?

(Btw we do not have an extradition treaty with Ukraine.)

The whole defense is self-contradictory and doesn't make much logical sense.

What was the criticism? Can you quote it?

If you need to wait for the full report to tell me more, how do you know that your assertion is true that they did not use their position correctly?

Once again: DEFLECTION. WHAT ABOUT-ISM; very transparent ploys. This article is about Lisa Paige. Wow, it’s scary when some can’t stop ragging on the president for even a moment.

Wow, the irony, from the same person who claims her hatred of Trump is due to his immorality, now defending Paige and excusing away her immoral behavior with a married man. Just wow.

I’m shocked at how those very same people who justify their baseless hatred of the president by pointing to his supposed immorality, now defend Paige, a lowlife who not only had an affair with a married man (FBI AGENT NO LESS) but also conspired with him to take down a potential president and prevent the will of the American people to prevail!!!!!
