Embattled FBI lawyer Lisa Page has resigned

Two key advisers to former FBI Director James Comey are leaving the bureau. It is alleged that Mr.Baker was behind leaks from a salacious dossier about President Trump and Russian Federation.

Lisa Web page, whose digital communications with one other Federal Bureau of Investigation worker drew accusations of political bias, "resigned" Friday to "pursue different alternatives", an Federal Bureau of Investigation spokesperson advised Fox Information.

The Justice Department has provided Congress with thousands of text messages Strzok and Page exchanged during the course of both investigations.

"You can bet that given Richman's role at the FBI and [he and Comey's] close relationship that this wasn't the first time that leaks like this occurred", Fitton said, calling for a "credible investigation" into Comey's leaking. He was tapped as the FBI's top lawyer in January 2014, but was reassigned from his post as general counsel elsewhere in the agency previous year.

He will now write for Lawfare, a national security blog issued by The Brookings Institute.

Baker was unaware of Page's plans to resign and the announcement came as a surprise to him, he told The New York Times.

"He's shielded the nation and the principle of law all through his livelihood and leaves an inspiring legacy of assistance", Mr. Comey said.

"I adore the F.B.I.", he explained. "He is what we should all hope our kids become, a person of integrity", said Comey.

House Republicans have also accused Mr. Baker of function as the source of the leaks about an salacious dossier of advice concerning Mr. Trump compiled by an former British spy.

The 2 of them often advised Mr. Comey, Mr.Baker, once the FBI's Top attorney, was reassigned in December when new Director Christopher Wray took over. Page maintained her position after news of her affair broke previous year.

It is not known if either is still with their spouse.
