President Trump is on his way to Brussels to demand that America’s NATO allies contribute more money to the international alliance. But in a tweet Tuesday morning, the president revealed that he’d heard a rumor that the “FBI lovers” – agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page – are getting “cold feet” over their decision to testify before Congress. Strzok is supposed to testify publicly before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, according to his lawyer Aitan Goelmnan. Meanwhile, Page was reportedly scheduled to appear Wednesday for a closed-door session on Capitol Hill – though her lawyer told Politico that nothing has been finalized.
“I am on Air Force One flying to NATO and hear reports that the FBI lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are getting cold feet on testifying about the Rigged Witch Hunt headed by 13 Angry Democrats and people that worked for Obama for 8 years. Total disgrace!”

Strzok and Page were famously exposed for exchanging text messages detailing their sharp distaste for President Trump. Their conversations included discussion of an“insurance policy” against Trump becoming president.
Furthermore, emails that were recently obtained by the Hill’s John Solomon showed that Strzok and Page at one point discussed scrambling to dig up dirt on the Trump campaign. Given their involvement with the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign – an investigation that later morphed into the Mueller probe – Trump and his associates have repeatedly cited their communications as evidence of bias at the DOJ.
We now wait for word from Strzok and Page (or their lawyers) about their plans to testify. Strzok has already met with lawmakers behind closed doors, but has previously delayed a public hearing.
