DOCUMENTS: Investigators Were Told DOJ ‘Not Willing to Charge’ Clinton in Email Probe

Justice was never going to be served in the Clinton email scandal.

Published

on

Fox News obtained documents late Wednesday showing that the Department of Justice told investigators in the Clinton email scandal that they were “not willing to charge” the twice-failed presidential candidate, despite obvious violations of the law.

“An internal chart prepared by federal investigators working on the so-called “Midyear Exam” probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails, exclusively reviewed by Fox News, contained the words ‘NOTE: DOJ not willing to charge this’ next to a key statute on the mishandling of classified information,” the Fox report said. “The notation appeared to contradict former FBI Director James Comey’s repeated claims that his team made its decision that Clinton should not face criminal charges independently.”

What exactly was the DOJ “not willing to charge” Clinton with?

Three particular statutes were mentioned in the Fox report – crimes related to willfully retaining national defense information that could harm the United States, crimes related to gross negligence in handling classified material, and crimes related to “retaining classified materials at an ‘unauthorized location.'”

The document was called “Espionage Act Charges – Retention/Mishandling,” according to the report.

Wednesday, it was widely reported that disgraced former FBI lawyer Lisa Page revealed to the House Judiciary Committee that the Obama DOJ told the FBI not to charge Clinton in the email scandal in 2018 closed-door testimony.

BLP reported:

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.”

Selective justice is a hallmark of any authoritarian state.

BEWARE: New ‘Conservative Economics’ Think Tank by National Review Hack is Another #NeverTrump Grift

Columnist Oren Cass has a history of opposing Trump and denigrating his supporters.

Published

on

Public policy analyst and conservative author Oren Cass announced today that he would be establishing American Compass, a thinktank with a focus on populist economics that is set to open in May.

“Delighted to announce the formation of American Compass, whose mission is to restore an economic consensus that emphasizes the importance of family, community, and industry to the nation’s liberty and prosperity,” Cass wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

While Cass may act like he wants to offer an “America First” vision for conservatism, his history of writings at National Review indicate that he is another Never Trumper attempting to reinvent himself in order to grift or co-opt the movement Trump is responsible for creating.

“Keeping any distance in the public mind between conservatism and Trumpism — not just checking his executive power, but continually repudiating his demagoguery and standing beside its targets — will require a Herculean effort in the coming years. Perhaps it will be impossible. But we should try, most importantly because it is the right thing to do,” Cass wrote in an article just days after Trump was elected President.

“Conservatives cannot afford to have their long-standing agenda become indistinguishable from the noxious elements of Trumpism… But to be viable (or deserving of respect) in the long term, Republicans will have to sustain that coalition independent of the antidemocratic and intolerant aspects that Trump leveraged. Some will smirk that this is impossible and guts the core appeal of Trumpism, but if that’s true, then we’ll have to ensure its gutting anyway,” he added.

In a previous op/ed, Cass lauded Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as the paragon of virtue while denigrating Trump’s brand of politics and insulting his fans.

“The real difference is that Romney held himself each day to the highest standards of decency and felt keenly the burdens of leadership, while Trump is an entertainer committed to delivering whatever irrational blather of insults, threats, and lies will earn the most retweets,” Cass wrote.

“The Trump phenomenon does not deserve elevation to the level of some reasonable response, needed movement, or well-earned comeuppance. It is best regarded as some combination of nihilistic joke and authoritarian fantasy,” he added.

In his latest screed laying out the philosophical basis for his new thinktank, Cass never mentions Trump, or even Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson, even once. He instead name drops Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) as the model for his brand of conservatism.

“The problems animating America’s resurgent populism are very real. They will be solved neither by the ideological alignments that governed us into the crisis nor by that populism itself, which has demonstrated no ability to formulate or implement a coherent response,” he wrote.

Cass’ new project will create a “coherent response” to mounting societal problems that fits neatly within the parameters of globalism and politics-as-usual. Similar to National Review editor Rich Lowry with his book “The Case for Nationalism,” Cass is another establishment Republican attempting to make himself relevant in a political landscape that has passed him by.
