House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows tweeted Wednesday that lawmakers learned that former FBI lawyer Lisa Page "did review documents" at the agency on Tuesday, contrary to what her lawyer had told Congress.

"Her failure to appear before Congress this morning had little to do with 'preparation' — and everything to do with avoiding accountability," the North Carolina Republican said in his post:

Page's attorney, Amy Jeffress, said late Tuesday that she would not appear for the private interview before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, despite being subpoenaed to appear before them.

But Jeffress said in a new statement Wednesday that her client had offered to voluntarily appear before the committees later this month, but needed more clarification on what she would be asked.

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday warned Page she must appear for the private session before the Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees or the House could take action against her.

Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, the Virginia Republican, said Page had known for months about an interview, and members would use "all tools at our disposal" to obtain it.

Ryan said the House would "do what we need to do to protect this branch of government" and that he backed Goodlatte.

"A subpoena to testify before Congress is not optional, it's mandatory," the speaker said.
