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.
