As the nation waited with baited breath to finally hear from Lisa Page, the FBI lawyer and lover of Peter Strzok, who was the recipient of Strzok’s text message pledges to prevent the Trump presidency somehow, Page decided to bail.

Town Hall reports that Page was expected to testify before the House Judiciary and Oversight Committee on Wednesday after being served with a subpoena, but she failed to show, claiming she wasn’t “given enough time” to prepare for the hearing.

“Through her actions and words, Lisa has made it abundantly clear that she will cooperate with this investigation. There is no basis for claims that Lisa has anything to hide or is unwilling to testify. The [House Judiciary and Oversight] Committees’ bullying tactics here are unnecessary. We expect them to agree to another date so that Lisa can appear before the committees in the near future,” Page’s attorney, Amy Jeffrees said in a statement.

Jeffrees had warned ahead of the hearing that Page might not show up:

Page had been subpoenaed at her home by U.S. Marshalls after he lawyer rejected an electronic subpoena from Congress.

Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Bob Goodlatte, who issued the subpoena, is not buying Page and her attorney’s statement.

“It does appear apparently Lisa Page has something to hide,” he told Fox News on Wednesday, adding she could be held in contempt of Congress as early as Friday.

As the Committee gears up for Peter Strzok’s testimony on Thursday, President Trump took the opportunity to slam Attorney General Jeff Sessions for Page’s failure to appear:
