Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s testimony under oath was just leaked, and it contains certain bombshell information that is rocking Capitol Hill and beyond. Page admits it was Barack Obama’s Department of Justice that gave the stand-down order on the Hillary Clinton email prosecution.
But, that’s not all. You don’t want to miss this.Lisa Page, the former FBI lawyer who found herself at the center of the scandals involving Hillary Clinton’s emails and the Russia investigation, gave bombshell testimony behind closed doors last summer.
Now, the 800-page transcript has been leaked, and it’s really bad news for Barack Obama and his Department of Justice.
“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,” Fox News reports.
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 Obama’s Justice Department improperly interfered with the FBI’s supposedly independent conclusions on Clinton’s criminal culpability, Ratcliffe alleged.
The Texas Congressman posted the partial transcript on Twitter, tweeting, “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.”
“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.” 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!”
“Comey testified (under oath) that it was a ‘unanimous’ decision on Crooked Hillary. Lisa Page transcripts show he LIED,” Trump posted Wednesday afternoon.
