Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) interviewed with Harris Faulkner on Outnumbered Overtime, Wednesday, saying that Lisa Page’s refusal to appear for a private interview with two House committees despite being subpoenaed is a sign that the former FBI attorney has something to hide.
In a statement, Page’s attorney, Amy Jeffress, said her client did not have enough time to prepare and had asked the the House Judiciary and Oversight committees to schedule another date.
Page originally was scheduled to appear before both committees Wednesday as part of their investigation into alleged bias at the Justice Department.
During his interview, Goodlattle said Page has been in “complete defiance” of cooperation with Congress for months. (Video Below)
Bob Goodlatte tweeted, “Lisa Page plans to blatantly defy a congressional subpoena by refusing to appear for her deposition. She is a key witness, and it is critical that she come before @HouseJudiciary to answer questions as part of our investigation. It appears she has something to hide.”

Goodlatte said on Outnumbered, “This is a very serious matter. This subpoena is still in effect. I think it’s very important for her to understand that. And she should comply with it and she should comply with it now, before she’s held in contempt of Congress.”
He added that could happen as soon as Friday if she fails to comply with the subpoena.
“She does not have days or weeks to do this. She’s got to decide now.”
