Disgraced former FBI attorney Lisa Page has reportedly divorced her husband despite him sticking by her side after her affair with disgraced former FBI special agent Peter Strzok.
“Divorce papers filed in the District of Columbia Superior Court show the 44-year-old’s divorce from non-profit executive Joseph Burrow, 46, was finalized on June 29,” the Daily Mail exclusively reported Thursday.
When petitioning for the divorce in May, just days before the couple’s 15th anniversary, Page reportedly told a judge that she wanted the divorce because of “unhappy and irreconcilable differences.”
As previously reported, Page had an affair with Strzok while they were investigating then-GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.

It was during their affair that Strzok infamously text-messaged Page about stopping/preventing Trump from becoming president.
The text messages weren’t publicly released — and the couple’s affair outed — until years after the 2016 presidential election.
Incidentally, the divorce papers filed in May reportedly show that Page has been living apart from her husband since Nov. 1, 2020, days before the 2020 presidential election.
As part of her divorce, she reportedly got to keep possession of the couple’s $1,035,600 home “in an upmarket neighborhood close to Capitol Hill favored by DC’s political elites,” according to the Daily Mail.
The outlet spotted her “outside her three-bedroom house on Saturday without her wedding ring.”
“She sported a gray LA Dodgers baseball cap and workout gear as she attended a block party for pupils of a nearby elementary school,” the Daily Mail notes.
Strzok, for his part, is reportedly still married.
“Strzok, now 53, appears still to be married to Melissa Hodgman, a 55-year-old executive at the U.S. financial watchdog, the Securities and Exchange Commission who uncovered the affair when she checked her husband’s FBI-issued phone,” according to the Daily Mail.

Though the text messages between Strzok and Page began before the 2016 presidential election, they continued afterward too — even as the two later joined then-special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump.
In fact, it was during this time on Mueller’s team that the texts were discovered, after which Page resigned in disgrace — whereas Strzok stubbornly remained at his post until he was outright fired.
After resigning, Page eventually sued the Department of Justice and FBI in 2019 for publicly releasing her text messages, arguing that the move violated her privacy rights.
“In the 23-page lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia nearly two years to the day after the disclosure in question, Page alleges DOJ and FBI violated the Privacy Act by sharing nearly 400 text messages with reporters on the night of Dec. 12, 2017, to alleviate pressure on the department by Trump and his allies in Congress,” Politico reported at the time.
That same year, Rep. John Ratcliffe revealed that Page had testified to him under oath that the FBI had been ordered years ago by the Obama DOJ “not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information.”
As evidence, he provided a transcript of what had been said.
“Okay. So let me if I can, I know I’m testing your memory, but when you say advice you got from the Department, you’re making it sound like it was the Department that told you: You’re not going to charge gross negligence because we’re the prosecutors and we’re telling you we’re not going to,” the transcript shows he said.
“That is Correct,” the transcript shows she replied.

Strzok also sued in 2019.
“In a lawsuit … Strzok excoriates the Justice Department and FBI for their handling of his dismissal over a trove of text messages he wrote to a colleague that were critical of Trump,” Politico reported.
“Strzok accuses the president of inappropriately bullying law enforcement officials deciding his fate, raises questions about why his texts were leaked to the media and lambastes the administration for only defending its employees’ free speech rights when they are praising Trump.”
The lawsuits are still pending, with the latest news about them dropping just this past summer, when the Biden DOJ tried to block Strzok’s attorneys and Page’s attorneys from deposing Trump.
“The DOJ has gone to the appeals court to try to correct what it believes was a mistake from a lower court, when Judge Amy Berman Jackson decided Trump could be deposed by Strzok’s and Page’s legal teams about Strzok being fired following his work on the Russia investigation,” CNN reported.
