    Lisa Page Testimony May Have Put Obama AG Loretta Lynch In The Crosshairs
    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.
    “We had multiple conversations with the Justice Department about bringing a gross negligence charge,” Page told Republican Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe. “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.”

    Ratcliffe responded, “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.'”

    “That’s correct,” Page answered.
    But if Page were telling the truth, and the FBI did recommend possible charges against Clinton, then Lynch may not have been telling the truth when she said that she would “accept their recommendations.”

    It would be nice to see some of Obama's crooks get nailed finally.

    On a side note , it's so nice to post an article on this site without a bunch of vaginas crying about the source

      One of my biggest disappointments of the Trump era is that activity like this hasn't been prosecuted.

        Nothing will happen about the Hillary server stuff legally as they made sure of that and I tend to think nothing will happen to the crooks for what they pulled on Trump either except maybe a joke lying indictment on someone like McCabe. I hope I am wrong and Barr actually makes people do their job instead of protecting the swamp on that illegal spying operation they pulled.

        Trump's really lucky to have fallen where he has. He's following one of, if not the worst, Presidents in history. And, he ran against one of the worst candidates in history. In the meantime, he gets a Republican Senate and a pseudo-communist House. So he gets confirmations done and gets to use an embolden House as a foil. This is while the Democrats are actually showing a fracture.

        I'm not saying he hasn't done a lot, but it looks like a lot more given the context of where he came along in history. He sure as sh i t could do a lot more.

          You don't need to tell me that the fix was in from the beginning; but the problem is that Lynch's statements were in public and not in a judicial proceeding. I could be wrong, but don't believe she testified under oath the same thing to Congress either.

          Doesn't excuse the lie; but there won't be any judicial penalties for it.

          What it could be the basis for, however, is a separate special counsel investigation into the email matter (as should have happened from the beginning).

                Lol..... and yet they prosecuted hundreds for it, mostly military people.

                And every day thousands get charged with other statutes that have the exact same or similiar reckless or gross negligence language. But the law doesnt apply to Clintons.

                    Yes, we hear all the time from the main stream media about Trumps failure to make Mexico pay for a wall but nobody ever mentions Trumps other big broken promise.....Drain the swamp.

                      I don't have any reason to question the facts of the story, but exactly whose crosshairs is Lynch supposed to be in?

                        How would that help anything now when they already purposely gave immunity to people they never should have and never took control of most of the evidence. That operation was to assure she never had to worry about being charged criminally on this stuff.

                        This is a joke anyway because Comey was never going to recommend charges and we knew the DOJ wouldn't charge her.

                        The main point would be to address the improprieties of the "investigation" itself. There are avenues to go after people who were given immunity (one can easily prove the IT guy lied about destroying the server when it was under subpoena...and that lie can be prosecuted independently OR violate the entire immunity deal) and Clinton's questionable answers that the FBI deemed "not believable" (yes, direct quote from the agent himself); but I think the better value to society would be to give an honest accounting of what happened.

                          So Lisa Page is credible now? It's hard to keep up with all the right wing mental gymnastics.

                          Also, if Lynch is in trouble for making a perfectly logical legal decision, shouldn't Trump also be for all of his interference with the processes of the DOJ the last couple years?

                          I'm guessing the answer will just involve more hypocrisy.

                          Speaking of mental gymnastics: any comment on why Justice's "logical" interpretation of the Espionage Act doesn't seem to stop them from charging dozens of people every year under its provisions?

                          I'll wait.

                                  Sure, it's right wing gymnastics that produced all those acts of "taking the fifth", going back to Lois Lerner, etc.
                                  There is far too much to criminality on the left, democrats, that escaped by bogus lack-of-intent claim, with the hammer pulverization of subpoenaed computers, blackberry, Bleach Bit erasures, etc. etc. Exoneration before evidence compiled & verified. Etc. etc. Above the law, 2-tiered justice system.

                                          The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
