Last Friday, the first day former FBI lawyer Lisa Page was testifying in a closed-door hearing, Republicans like Rep. Mark Meadows praised Page, saying she had been cooperative, and as Twitchy reported Monday night, Rep. John Ratcliffe said after a nearly 7-hour session that Page had been “a very forthcoming witness,” giving the committee “a lot of new information that we didn’t have before.”

With headlines consumed by President Trump’s presser with Vladimir Putin, we didn’t see much more about Page’s testimony, but “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday morning presented some video of Ratcliffe reporting Page saying that her texts meant exactly what they said.

We wonder if that includes the text in which Page wondered if Peter Strzok was maybe the man meant to protect the country from “that menace,” Donald Trump. Or maybe that message where Strzok reassured Page that Trump would never be elected president: “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok replied.

President of the Center for American Progress Neera Tanden wants a public hearing:

To which we say, “Go for it.” Let’s make all of it public.

We’re sorry, but anytime we see the name Peter Strzok, that horrifying GIF of him pops up in our heads and we have to go to our safe space for a few minutes.

What attitudes?

He’s got a point.
