REPORT: Obama’s DOJ Pressured FBI to Abandon Hillary’s ‘Gross Negligence’ Charge

Originally published at:

Recently released transcripts from former DOJ attorney Lisa Page shed new light on the FBI’s case against Hillary Clinton this week; revealing the agency was pressured by the Obama administration to abandon charges against Hillary Clinton.

“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,” reports the Washington Examiner.

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!

According to Page, the agency “did not blow over 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,” she added.

“We had multiple conversations with the Justice Department about bringing a gross negligence charge. And that’s, as I said, the advice that we got from the Department was that they did not think — that it was constitutionally vague and not sustainable,” said Page.
