On Tuesday, the transcripts of former FBI lawyer Lisa Page was made public and it held all sorts of goodies.
In fact, one of those little gems was the discovery that the FBI was going to charge Hillary Clinton with “gross negligence” which in case you were wondering is a crime.
However, former traitor-in-chief Barack Obama’s Justice Department told them “no.”
They were stonewalled every turn they took and was informed that the Justice Department would not prosecute the case.
Here is more from The Washington Examiner:
Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page testified last year that officials in the bureau, including then-FBI Director James Comey, discussed Espionage Act charges against Hillary Clinton, citing “gross negligence,” but the Justice Department shut them down.
Newly released transcripts from Page’s private testimony in front of a joint task force of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in July 2018 sheds new light on the internal discussions about an investigation into Clinton’s emails. This goes back to the FBI’s “Midyear Exam” investigation, which looked into whether Clinton committed crimes when she sent and received classified information on her unauthorized private email server while serving as secretary of state.
Comey cleared Clinton of all charges in a press conference on July 5, 2016.
Page told the committee that the FBI “did not blow over gross negligence.” Responding to a question from Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, Page testified the FBI, including Comey, believed Clinton may have committed 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 said.
“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,” she said.
Ratcliffe asked Page if the decision to negate the “gross negligence” charge was a direct order from the Department of Justice.
“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…,” Ratcliffe said.
Page interrupted the representative abruptly and answered him by saying “That’s correct,” the transcript said.
Page said that the Justice Department told them that “the ‘gross negligence’ standard in 793(f), it was their assessment that it was unconstitutionally vague.”
She was asked why the DOJ said that and she said “I really don’t know… I am confident that it was based on their own research in consultation with others, but I don’t have personal knowledge about what the Department did in order to come to that conclusion.”
