  • Obama DOJ ordered stand-down on Clinton email prosecution,

    Nothing new here, abuse of power by Democrat Presidents is accepted as Business as Usual.

    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."

    As you say - nothing new here. And no one is going to charge Obama with obstruction of justice or any other rimes because the Dems never punish their own.

    It's a sad time to be an American.

      Page continued that, “if the answer is this is a guy just being puffery at a meeting with other people, great, then we don’t need to worry about this, and we can all move on with our lives; if this is, in fact, the Russians have coopted an individual with, you know, maybe wittingly or unwittingly, that’s incredibly grave, and we need to know that as quickly as possible.”

        And why is that? We could have a better president and an administration that wasn't corrupt, but all in all we're still lucky to live here.

            TDS was rampant before the election so it is little wonder that some pin heads at the FBI were happy to assume he was "colluding" with the Russians. The real scandal in a way is that we have such nit wits working at the FBI.

              There was also a very wide belief that Hillary would be the next president...

                  Why are you surprised? Hoover was cross-dresser.
