Page’s testimony is the most salient evidence yet that the Obama Justice Department improperly interfered with the FBI’s supposedly independent conclusions on Clinton’s criminal culpability.
“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.
The document dump was part of a major release by House Judiciary Committee Republicans, who on Tuesday released hundreds of pages of transcripts from last year’s closed-door interview with Page, revealing new details about the bureau’s controversial internal discussions regarding an “insurance policy” against then-candidate Donald Trump. Fox News has previously reviewed portions of Page’s testimony.
Responding to the transcript revelations, Trump on Wednesday tweeted: “The just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine. Hopefully, justice will finally be served. Much more to come!”

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. pic.twitter.com/KPQKINBtrB— John Ratcliffe (@RepRatcliffe) March 13, 2019
age also testified that the DOJ and FBI had “multiple conversations … about charging gross negligence,” and the DOJ decided to give Clinton a pass.
Then-Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch was spotted meeting secretly with former President Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac as the probe into Hillary Clinton, which Lynch was overseeing, continued.
It’s extremely clear if there is to be a rule of law then Clinton and Obama must be prosecuted along with all of the players who went in for the assist. Really is time for social unrest, no more two tiered justice system.
This is why Democrats had to have this never ending investigation into Trump. They had to make him look like the criminal, in order to create a giant distraction. Whatever democrats accuse others of, you can rest assure it is exactly what they are doing.
Obama scandal “free” only because he was protected by deep-state democrats.
