Congressman Biggs Calls for Lisa Page to be Held in Contempt
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Former FBI employee, Lisa Page, refused a Congressional subpoena to testify before the House Judiciary Committee in a closed-door deposition scheduled for today. Congressman Biggs issued the following statement:
“Lisa Page made a poor decision to refuse our Committee’s subpoena, and she should be held in contempt for her obstruction of this investigation. Ms. Page and her attorney are attempting to cast blame on Congress for her calculated absence today, but in reality, she fears being held accountable for her role in the flawed Hillary Clinton investigation and subsequent actions relating to President Trump’s candidacy. We, like the American people, see right through her.
“Lisa Page, along with current and former Department of Justice employees, continue to deny Congress’s constitutional oversight authority. There should be consequences for this willful rebellion. I am tired of the excuses and misdirection. Congress must act to quell further insubordination. I call on Chairman Goodlatte to introduce a resolution to hold Ms. Page in contempt.”
Congressman Andy Biggs is a first-term Representative from Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District, representing parts of Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, and Queen Creek. Congressman Biggs is a member of the House Judiciary and Science, Space, and Technology committees, and is the chairman of the Environment Subcommittee. He lives with his wife, Cindy, in Gilbert.
