“I think there are significant differences between their testimony about important material facts,” Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) said Monday, comparing the testimonies of former FBI lawyer Lisa Page and her former love and colleague, FBI agent Peter Strzok.
Page’s testimony Monday in a closed-door House hearing was far more cooperative and informative that that of Strzok, who testified in a contentious hearing last week, LifeZette quotes Ratcliffe saying:
“I think there are significant differences between their testimony about important material facts,” Ratcliffe said.
“I think she has been as forthcoming as she can. I think she is trying to respect the real privileges that exist from her former employer, and she is getting direction from FBI counsel about not answering certain things and she is trying to respect that. At the same time, I think she is trying to give us as much information as she’s allowed to do, which I think is a distinction and difference from what we saw with Peter Strzok.”
Page’s testimony not only provides new information, but also raises important questions that require further investigation, Rep. Ratcliffe said:
“She gave us a lot of new information that we didn’t have before. That will lead us to ask for some more people to make some more requests for information we do not yet have.”
