Lisa Page, the former FBI lawyer who became a frequent target of President Donald Trump’s after she criticized the president during his 2016 candidacy, disputed the president’s claim that she took out a restraining order on former FBI agent Peter Strzok.
“This is a lie. Nothing like this ever happened,” she tweeted Wednesday. “I wish we had a president who knew how to act like one. SAD!”
Trump made the comments during a rally in Hershey, Penn., on Tuesday night.
"Did I hear he needed a restraining order after this whole thing to keep him away from Lisa? That's what I heard. I don't know if it's true,” the president said.
Page and Strzok had been working on investigating Hillary Clinton's emails and Russia, and exchanged numerous text messages concerning Trump, including messages with Page asking for reassurance that Trump would not be elected, and Strzok telling her “No. No, he’s not. We’ll stop it.”
The pair were having an extramarital affair.
Page on Tuesday sued the Department of Justice and FBI over the “unlawful” disclosure of her text messages with Strzok. She also said Trump’s remarks over the last two years has “radically altered her day-to-day life.”
