Minutes before he leveled his attack on Twitter against Strzok, the president also tore into Page for her reported plans to defy a subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee. 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".
Strzok and Page were both members of the special counsel Robert Mueller had appointed to run the Russian investigation.
The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), suggested Wednesday that "the real reason" Republicans were weighing contempt measures against Page was to "set up a dramatic thing" before Strzok's public interview Thursday. She added that Page first needed clarification about what the lawmakers would be asking and access to Federal Bureau of Investigation documents. "We are also aware of committee efforts to schedule your client's appearance for over six months now".
Asked what the House is considering doing if Page doesn't comply, including holding Page in contempt, Ryan said Congress would "do what we need to do to protect this branch of government".
Time will tell if the House will take such measures against Page, or if the two sides will reach an agreement for a future meeting time before such action is considered.

The Justice Department investigated text exchanges between the two in a June report conducted by the Inspector General.
The president has repeatedly painted Mueller's investigation as a tainted witch-hunt led by Democrats.
Jerrold Nadler of NY, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, and Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the party's ranking member on the Oversight panel, said the Republicans' focus on Page and Strzok was meant to undermine the Russian Federation investigation now being run by Special Council Robert Mueller.
However, investigators did not find any political bias on behalf of Comey or the Federal Bureau of Investigation when it came to protecting or prosecuting Clinton.
Trump torched Page and Strzok on Tuesday while aboard Air Force One headed to Brussels.
Lisa Page, pictured in January, was due to be interviewed by two House committees Wednesday. Trump tweeted. "Wow, but is anybody really surprised!"
"This is the Federal Bureau of Investigation we're talking about - that is treason", Trump said. "That is a treasonous act". Read his hate filled and totally biased Emails and the answer is clear!
Strzok had a leading role in the Clinton probe and was removed from the Mueller investigation after the texts were discovered a year ago. Page had already left the Mueller team.
Emphasising Germany's as a free and independent state, Ms Merkel said: "We make our own policy and make independent decisions". White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said this is not a formal proposal and that Trump had merely "suggested" this increase.
