Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) dropped a bombshell on Tuesday night, revealing that former FBI official Lisa Page confirmed under oath that the Obama DOJ ordered the FBI not to consider charging Hillary Clinton in her email scandal.
"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," Ratcliffe tweeted.
Attached to the tweet was a transcript of his questioning of Page.
"I know I’m testing your memory, 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 —" Ratcliffe reportedly said.
"That is correct," Page responded.
Page also revealed new details about the much-talked about "insurance policy" mentioned in texts between then-fellow FBI agent Peter Strzok.
"Among their texts was one concerning the so-called 'insurance policy.' During her interview with the Judiciary Committee in July 2018, Page was questioned at length about that text -- and essentially confirmed this referred to the Russia investigation while explaining that officials were proceeding with caution, concerned about the implications of the case while not wanting to go at "total breakneck speed" and risk burning sources as they presumed Trump wouldn't be elected anyway," Fox News reported.
The FBI referred to the investigation as "Crossfire Hurricane."
“So, upon the opening of the crossfire hurricane investigation, we had a number of discussions up through and including the Director regularly in which we were trying to find an answer to the question, right, which is, is there someone associated with the [Trump] campaign who is working with the Russians in order to obtain damaging information about Hillary Clinton,” Page testified.
She added: “And given that it is August, we were very aware of the speed and sensitivity that we needed to operate under.”
This could just be the tip of the iceberg.
