Some people have absolutely no shame and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page is definitely one of them.

Bombshell FBI internal documents broke yesterday with handwritten notes from agents in the Flynn case indicating there was an effort to set him up.


In response, OAN’s Jack Posobiec commented that Page and Benjamin Wittes seemed pretty quiet in the wake of the revelations. Wittes is the the guy who became notorious for always posting cannon booms allegedly that were supposed to do in Trump (but never did). He’s a buddy of former FBI Director James Comey. He’s also Editor in Chief of the Lawfare blog and has been an analyst for NBC and MSNBC.

Wittes responded.

Page, after everything, had the temerity to mock people by posting this:

This is supposed to be a grown adult male:

They’re literally laughing about it. And you wonder why people don’t trust the FBI or the media with examples like this.

But Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist dropped them.


There was an attempt afoot to try to justify the internal notes as perfectly normal behavior.

But as I noted last night in my story about former federal prosecutor, Andrew McCarthy, no, it isn’t “how it works.” It’s a false comparison, comparing criminal suspects to an effort to trap a decorated officer with no known criminal predicate. It really says more about the people trying to sell that bull.

From Fox News:

“What we are seeing is a meticulously planned-out scheme to try to get a 33-year combat veteran of the United States to say something that was inaccurate so that they would have a basis to try to charge him with false statements or otherwise get him fired,” McCarthy told “The Story.” [….]

“They did not have a legitimate investigative reason for doing this and there was no criminal predicate or reason to treat him [Flynn] like a criminal suspect,” McCarthy explained.

“They did the interview outside of the established protocols of how the FBI is supposed to interview someone on the White House staff. They are supposed to go through the Justice Department and the White House counsel’s office. They obviously purposely did not do that and they were clearly trying to make a case on this.” [….]

“For years, a number of us have been arguing that this looked like a perjury trap” [….]

“People should understand,” McCarthy explained, “if General Flynn was a gangbanger or Mafia guy, they would have sat down with them or they would have told him, ‘This is a criminal investigation,’ they would have identified themselves as FBI agents, told him the reason for the interview, told him he had a right not to answer questions and told him if he made false statements, that could be grounds for prosecution. And if he made true statements, that can be used against him in a prosecution.”


Um, Ben and Lisa? Boom. And we think that wouldn’t be the last one.
