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.

DAY OF RECKONING: Anti-Trump FBI Lawyer Lisa Page to TESTIFY ‘This Month’
Anti-Trump FBI lawyer Lisa Page confirmed Wednesday her willingness to testify before Congressional leaders “later this month,” facing heated questions over her politically biased text exchanges with DOJ official Peter Strzok.
According to the Washington Examiner, Page’s attorney confirmed her client’s plan to comply with Congressional requests and appear before the House Judiciary Committee at an unspecified date.
“She has offered to voluntarily appear before the committees later this month,” said Page’s attorney. “I received a message from the Department of Justice after 11 p.m. last night that they have finally granted her request to review the relevant documents. We are working to arrange that process quickly so that we can move forward with her appearance before the Committees.”
Lisa Page and Peter Strzok made national headlines earlier this year after multiple text exchanges were publicly released; showing widespread anti-Trump bias throughout the FBI and the Department of Justice ahead of the 2016 race for the White House.
The private conversations raised serious questions over the FBI’s handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server as well as the probe into Russian collusion during the 2016 election.
BOMBSHELL: Secret TEXTS Show FBI, DOJ May Have RUSHED Anti-Trump FISA Warrant
An explosive new report from Sara Carter shows the FBI and the Department of Justice may have inappropriately coordinated with senior Obama officials in securing a FISA warrant against top Trump officials ahead of the 2016 race for the White House.
Newly discovered texts between anti-Trump officials inside the DOJ show a high-level of cooperation in obtaining a FISA warrant against former Trump associate Carter Page.
“Text messages obtained by investigators reveal that FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his colleague Lisa Page were discussing the FBI’s difficulty in obtaining the warrant to spy on Carter Page, who worked for a short stint with the Trump campaign. The FBI obtained its first warrant to spy on Page on Oct. 19, 2016, and there would be three subsequent renewals every 90 days for the warrant on Mr. Page,” writes Carter.
“The communications, which were first released last week and obtained by congressional investigators, occurred roughly one month before the Page warrant was obtained. The communications suggested that there was possible coordination by Obama White House officials, the CIA and the FBI into the investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign,” she adds.
