Lisa Page, the FBI attorney whose explosive Trump-hating texts with bureau lover Peter Strzok stunned America, has resigned.
Jim Baker, fired former FBI Director Jim Comey's lawyer, also resigned on Friday and said he'd be working for a website.
The timing is telling — as an Inspector General report that will reportedly reveal alleged FBI misdeeds in its treatment of Donald Trump's presidential campaign is expected to be released later this month.
Page has faced months of scrutiny over text messages which she exchanged with Strzok, the former deputy chief of the FBI's counterintelligence division. Strzok got transferred to the HR department and remains working at the FBI.
Page And Strzok left the Special Counsel investigation of alleged Russian collusion into the Trump campaign in September of 2017 after their bias against the billionaire businessman was discovered.
Strzok and Lisa Page, who allegedly had an affair, were caught exchanging anti-Trump text messages during the summer of 2017.
The texts referred to Trump as "an idiot" and "loathsome."
The two also texted about about an "insurance policy" to keep Trump out of office.
"I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy's office…that there's no way Trump gets elected…but I'm afraid we can't take that risk," Strzok text messaged to Page in an Aug. 15, 2016 exchange, referring to Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe (who was later fired).
"It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you're 40," Strzok added.
When Barack Obama was still President, Page and Strzok also texted about him wanting to "know everything" about the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Comey absolved Hillary in the email scandal before the election. Trump later gave him the boot, which led to the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate the President. The ex-FBI director has blasted Trump in numerous interviews while promoting his memoir.
But Trump supporters hope the upcoming IG report discloses more on alleged Page, Strzok, Comey, McCabe, and other FBI employee dirty deeds!
