Lisa Page, one of the FBI officials singled out by President Donald Trump in his bid to portray the Russia probe as a partisan bid to undermine him, has spoken to The Daily Beast about the impact of the attacks.

Page and Strzok were removed from the Mueller probe into Russian interference when the messages came to light.
