Lisa Page admitted Obama DOJ ordered stand-down on Clinton email prosecution

Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page admitted under questioning from Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe last summer that "the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information," the congressman alleged in a social media post late Tuesday, citing a newly unearthed transcript of Page's closed-door testimony.

Page and since-fired FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, who were romantically involved, exchanged numerous anti-Trump text messages in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, and Republicans have long accused the bureau of political bias. But Page's testimony was perhaps the most salient evidence yet that the Justice Department improperly interfered with the FBI's supposedly independent conclusions on Clinton's criminal culpability, Ratcliffe alleged.

"So let me if I can, I know I’m testing your memory," Ratcliffe began as he questioned Page under oath, according to a transcript excerpt he posted on Twitter. "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 —"

Page interrupted: "That is correct," as Ratcliffe finished his sentence, " -- bring a case based on that."

HRC still needs to go down.

7:08 True, very true. Starting BEFORE Trump was elected she should have been indicted. I have been wondering why she hasn't been ever since.

Okay. We know that the now controlled house Democratic committees will do nothing with this. I would hope the new AG would bring this all to "daylight" and watch the rats turn on each other and it would be very interesting to watch Brennan, Klapper, Comey, McCabe, Lynch, Podesta, Hillary's aides, and of course HRC herself go down.

It's my opinion that until those mentioned above actually DO pay a price for breaking the law Americans will continue to distrust the system.
