Updated 10:33 a.m. | The attorney for former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, who refused to testify Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee, said her client plans to testify and that the committee's "bullying tactics" are unnecessary.
Page was subpoenaed to appear for a private interview Wednesday, but her lawyer informed the committees Tuesday that she would not show up.
Page's attorney, Amy Jeffress, said in a statement that her client didn't have enough time to prepare for her interview.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) threatened Page that he would enforce the subpoena, but has yet to do so. "But a subpoena to testify before Congress is not optional; it's mandatory".

Mr. Strzok, who was briefly part of Mr. Mueller's team, made national headlines late a year ago when texts sent to his lover, former Federal Bureau of Investigation attorney Lisa Page, were made public.
Page also briefly served on Mueller's investigative team until the revelations of her texts with Strzok.
'Lisa and I went to the Federal Bureau of Investigation today to review the materials that were previously produced to Congress relating to her proposed interview, but after waiting for more than three hours, we were not provided with any documents, ' Jeffress said.
He said that by Page not agreeing to show up, she's adding to the complexity of her legal woes. President Trump continued in a subsequent tweet.
During FBI agent Peter Strzok'sclosed-door interview with lawmakers last month, House Republicans seemed to care more about a relationship he had with a colleague and probing the Mueller investigation than they did about Russian Federation interfering with a USA election. Following that report and the firing of Comey by Trump, the Department of Justice Inspector General launched an investigation.
The House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees are interested in Page as part of their investigation into what they say is bias at the Justice Department. As a result, Lisa is not going to appear for an interview at this time'.
Page, who worked for Andrew McCabe when he was Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director and briefly served on special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's team, "was part of the mess that we've uncovered over at DOJ", Ryan said. Jeffress accused the panels of using unnecessary "bullying tactics" to push Page into an interview immediately, especially when "she has offered to voluntarily appear before the committees later this month".
Aiming to discredit the probe, Trump and supporters in Congress have charged that Mueller's team is stacked with Democrats and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been opposed to him.
