Former FBI attorney Lisa Page, a frequent target for Donald Trump, joined NBC and MSNBC today as an analyst.

Page ended up in the national spotlight over a great deal of scrutiny into now-infamous texts between herself and former FBI agent Peter Strzok. Page spoke out last December and announced she would be suing the DOJ and FBI for leaking her messages to the press.
Trump has tweeted numerous times about Page, including this tweet back in December.
When Lisa Page, the lover of Peter Strzok, talks about being “crushed”, and how innocent she is, ask her to read Peter’s “Insurance Policy” text, to her, just in case Hillary loses. Also, why were the lovers text messages scrubbed after he left Mueller. Where are they Lisa?

According to Politico, late last year Page “sued the Justice Department and FBI, accusing her former employers of violating her right to privacy by illegally leaking a cache of text messages she sent with a fellow FBI official.”
Lisa Page joining the NBC/MSNBC family. I’m sure the president will tweet about this. https://t.co/uPaqyVIF4Z
