"We will use all tools at our disposal to obtain her testimony", Goodlatte said.

The letter lays out a timeline, stating that, if Page does not appear, the committee "intends to initiate contempt proceedings" on Friday at 10:30 a.m.

Page is being given the choice of either appearing at an already-scheduled joint public hearing Thursday before the Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees, or attend a closed-door deposition on Friday, or both.

"It appears that Lisa Page has something to hide", Goodlatte said.

Goodlatte told Fox News that Page's attorney initially agreed to accept service of the subpoena for Page, but "then turned around and immediately tried to reject it".

But New York Rep.

Meanwhile, other GOP lawmakers slammed Page's over her refusal to appear for the interview on Wednesday, with Ron DeSantis of Florida calling it "pathetic" and Jim Jordan of OH said she was "once again showing the double standard".

Republican lawmakers on the House Judiciary Committee are now weighing whether to pursue contempt measures against Page, who first came to their attention over a series of anti-Trump text messages she exchanged with Peter Strzok, then a top Federal Bureau of Investigation counterterrorism official, with whom she was having an affair.

The list names more than 6,000 items including food products, minerals and consumer goods such as handbags. On Wednesday, China's main stock index lost 1.8 percent and Japan's market benchmark fell 1.1 percent.


"The Committees would be asking Lisa about materials that she has not yet been shown", Page's attorney Amy Jeffress said on Tuesday, explaining Page's refusal to show up for Wednesday's deposition. "She has offered to voluntarily appear before the Committees later this month".

After the Strzok-Page texts emerged, Strzok was demoted and posted to the FBI's office of human resources.

The two committees' "bullying tactics here are unnecessary", she added.

In tweets, Trump has branded the couple the "FBI lovers" and said their bias was at the heart of Mueller's "Witch Hunt". "We've been talking to her attorney for over a month".

One of the former Federal Bureau of Investigation officials whom President Donald Trump has labeled "FBI lovers" and blasted as an example of a campaign within the Justice Department against his administration and campaign is reportedly refusing to answer a subpoena handed down by the House Judiciary Committee.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Republican chairmen of the two committees sent a letter Page and her legal team laying out three options.

Rep. Ron DeSantis of Florida and several other conservatives who have been among the most critical of the FBI's handling of the Clinton and Russian Federation investigations sent the referral, although Goodlatte did not sign on. Ryan recently secured the release of some documents by the Justice Department by threatening to hold officials there in contempt.

Former top-level Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page was a no-show for her July 11 closed-door testimony to Congress overseers. "The public would be much better served by hearing from a crucial witness who has come fully prepared to publicly address the tough questions we expect her to answer, rather than the endless gamesmanship we continue to see from committee leadership".
