House Judiciary Committee members released transcripts of last years interview with former FBI lawyer Lisa Page. The transcript shows Page acknowledged the Obama DOJ ordered the FBI not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for her email scandal. This comes after the FBI has evidence to charge Hillary Clinton.
Below is a portion of the transcript between Lisa Page and Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX). As a reminder Lisa Page is the former lover of FBI official Peter Strzok, and the two colluded in attempts to prevent Trump from winning the fair election.
Page stated, “We did not blow over gross negligence. We, in fact and, in fact, the Director because on its face, it did seem like, well, maybe there’s a potential here for this to be the charge. And we had multiple conversations, multiple conversations with the Justice Department about charging gross negligence.”
Page continued, “And the Justice Department’s assessment was that it was both constitutionally vague, so that they did not actually feel that they could permissibly bring that charge, and also that it had either never been done or had only been done once like 99 years ago. And so they did not feel that they could sustain a charge.”
Ratcliffe stated to Page, “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.”
Page responded, “That’s correct,”
Ratcliffe Tweeted, “Lisa Page confirmed to me under oath that the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information.”
