  Camille Grammer Says 'RHOBH' Season 10 Drama Is 'Targeted' At Her Camille Grammer Says 'RHOBH' Season 10 Drama Is 'Targeted' At Her“What I’ve seen, there’s drama targeted at me. I show up and they kind of, you know, how do I say it the right way? I feel that I show up somewhere and I felt targeted,” the 51-year-old reality TV personality told Us Weekly and other reporters at Lisa Vanderpump’s 4th annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala in Hollywood on Thursday, November 21. “But there are things that need to be discussed, so maybe that was the right time to do so. There you go, there’s a carrot.

It’s not me doing it. I ’ m just reporting to you what we ’ re learning here in the Strzok- Page texts. I ’ m not the one besmirching the FBI. We know how devastating it is to perhaps the judge at the FISA court who was either in on the scam or might have been lied to and misled in order to issue the warrant to

Lisa Page, the former FBI lawyer whose anti-Trump text messages became ammo for Republicans to allege a "coup" against President Trump, stepped into the public spotlight one week ahead of a highly anticipated Justice Department inspector general report.

In the evening Sunday, the Daily Beast published an interview with Page and shortly afterwards she joined Twitter.

"I’m done being quiet," Page said in a short tweet sharing the report. Benjamin Wittes, editor-in-chief of Lawfare and "good friend" of former FBI Director James Comey, confirmed the account, @NatSecLisa, is hers.

Now insiders say she's supporting him on the heels of a possible breakup with "Downton Abbey" actress Lily James.

The FISA memo authored by Republicans has been released. The memo alleges that the FISA application did not mention “Steele was ultimately working on behalf of – and paid by – the DNC and Clinton campaign Page was a U.S. citizen and volunteer adviser to the Trump presidential campaign.

Former FBI counsel Lisa Page is fighting back against President Donald Trump, who has In a Daily Beast interview, Page explained that there was no possible evidence that she did anything illegal “ I had stayed quiet for years, hoping it would fade away, but instead, it got worse. It had been so hard

Page, 39, has been publicly silent ever since she left the bureau in May 2018 amid a political firestorm sparked by the revelation that she exchanged text messages with then-FBI special agent Peter Strzok in 2016 and 2017 that were heavily critical of Trump and also had an affair with her colleague.

In the interview, Page, who is married and a mother of two small children, claims she came forward now because Trump performed a "demeaning" impression of her having sex with Strzok during a rally in Minneapolis last month, calling it "the straw that broke the camel’s back." She also noted how Trump name-dropped her this month in a tweet about a "double standard" when his longtime confidant Roger Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress and witness intimidation.

  Kate Beckinsale claps back after hater says she's 'too old' for bikini pics Kate Beckinsale was accused of 'seeking attention' with her bikini pics.Over Thanksgiving and the ensuing weekend, the actress soaked up the sun in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, posting multiple steamy bikini pictures to Instagram. A few of her social media followers, though, weren't liking the view, as one of them told her she appeared to be having a "midlife crisis.

In fact, the FISA application includes information about Page 's activity prior to joining the Trump campaign at all. The Schiff memo controverts this interpretation. “Christopher Steele’s raw intelligence reporting did not inform the FBI’s decision to initiate its counterintelligence investigation

"My heart drops to my stomach when I realize he has tweeted about me again. The president of the United States is calling me names to the entire world. He's demeaning me and my career. It’s sickening," she said.

Page's emergence comes nearly one week before DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is set to release his report on alleged government surveillance abuses against onetime Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. As a member of the FBI counterintelligence investigation into Trump's campaign, and later special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation until she was removed upon the revelation of her text messages with Strzok, Page is likely to be a witness in the case.

Over the weekend, and ahead of what may be an imminent release of the notorious FISA memo, we reported that President Trump allegedly broke off with the Department of Justice last week by calling for the release of the four- page " FISA memo" purportedly summarizing widespread surveillance

Early leaks about a draft report reportedly show Horowitz found missteps and lapses in judgment by the FBI, but no evidence of spying on the Trump campaign or political bias by top officials tainting the Russia investigation as Trump and his allies have claimed. U.S. Attorney John Durham is also conducting a criminal inquiry into the origins of the Russia investigation, which recently shifted from an administrative review.

“While it would be nice to have the IG confirm publicly that my personal opinions had absolutely no bearing on the course of the Russia investigations, I don’t kid myself that the fact will matter very much for a lot of people. The president has a very loud megaphone," Page said.

The text messages between Page and Strzok were uncovered over the course of the Justice Department's inspector general investigation into the DOJ's and FBI's conduct during the investigation into Hillary Clinton's unauthorized private email server. Horowitz's report on that matter, which came out in the summer of 2018, said their text messages "potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations. But Horowitz determined there was no evidence “improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative decisions."

Trump, Russia and Ukraine: Five presidential conspiracy theories debunked

  Trump, Russia and Ukraine: Five presidential conspiracy theories debunked Here's a guide to the facts -- and the fictions -- behind some of President Trump's assertions about Russia, Ukraine and the 2016 election.Special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation was a "witch hunt" that resulted in his "complete and total exoneration,” Trump has said. The "deep state" is out to get him. His predecessor, Barack Obama, tapped his phones, and the FBI "spied" on his campaign.

In one notable exchange in August 2016, Page asked Strzok, “[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”

“No. No he won’t,” Strzok replied. “We'll stop it."

Page was grilled about her text messages during private testimony in June 2018 to a joint congressional task force investigating potential bias in the Justice Department and the FBI. The transcript was released in March.

Page was recently mentioned in Strzok's wrongful termination lawsuit against the FBI. In its response to Strzok, the Justice Department revealed two weeks ago that Strzok’s wife discovered his affair with Page on his phone in 2017.

She was also dragged into the case of former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversations with a Russian envoy. His legal team claims Page was part of a plot to "set up" Flynn by manipulating FBI interview notes. The Justice Department has called this claim and others "divorced from the facts."
