Disgraced former FBI agent Lisa Page sang like a canary when questioned under oath last summer, according to the the social media account of one of the members of the House Judiciary Committee who took part in her hearing before Congress.
“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,” said Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) on Twitter, attaching a transcript of the hearing.

“So let me if I can, I know I’m testing your memory,” the transcript said. “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 him and said “That is correct.”
Page first gained public prominence when it came to light in late 2017 that she and her former FBI agent lover Peter Strzok had exchanged numerous anti-Trump text messages, which discussed dubious “insurance policies” and expressed their desires to stop Trump from becoming president. Both were part of the FBI’s counterintelligence team in the bogus “Russian collusion” hoax.
House Judiciary Committee Republicans made the hearing transcripts public for the first time yesterday, confirming the suspicions of those who have followed the Clinton email scandal and “Russian collusion” stories – the Justice Department under President Barack H. Obama made sure that then-candidate Hillary Clinton was not charged for obvious mishandling of classified information.
Such a charge would have been devastating to her doomed campaign, and dangerous to Obama’s cronies who were spying on the Trump campaign with warrants obtained from secret FISA courts based on the still-unconfirmed information contained in the bogus and salacious Steele Dossier, created by Fusion GPS, an opposition research campaign in the employ of the Clinton campaign.
Simply put, Obama was spying on Trump without cause, and did not want to risk causing Clinton the election with a prosecution.
Since Clinton lost anyway, the “Russian collusion” scheme is being exposed for what it is – not a legitimate investigation into any crime, but a coverup of the extralegal activities of the Obama administration that was desperate to prevent a Trump presidency.

Second Former Andrew Cuomo Aide Accuses Disgraced Governor of Sexual Harassment
Cuomo has refused to resign.
A second former aide has accused beleaguered New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, speaking the New York Times on Saturday.
Charlotte Bennett served as an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Governor’s office until November of last year, and recounted a series of incidents where she was propositioned about her sex life and the governor’s preferences.
“Ms. Bennett, 25, said the most unsettling episode occurred on June 5, when she was alone with Mr. Cuomo in his State Capitol office. In a series of interviews this week, she said the governor had asked her numerous questions about her personal life, including whether she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, and had said that he was open to relationships with women in their 20s — comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.”
Cuomo also allegedly questioned Bennett on her opinions of non-monogamous relationships.
“I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett said. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.”
Bennett is the second former Cuomo staffer to come public with accounts of sexual harassment. Lindsey Boylan, an ex-Cuomo aide who had previously spoken of toxicity in the establishment Democrat’s office. Boylan alleges that Cuomo asked her to play strip poker on a plane, that his underlings communicated he had a “crush” on her, and that the Governor would frequently touch her back and her arms.
Cuomo is currently facing a possible impeachment or censure from the New York legislature for his cover-up of the state’s disastrous nursing home scandal, in which the deaths of thousands of senior citizens were covered up in order to deflect an investigation from the Department of Justice. Leading Democrats such as Ron Kim have called for his resignation, and it may prove the new sexual harassment allegations could be the final straw.
