House Judiciary Committee members released the transcript of former FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s testimony in front of the committee last year and it contained several major revelations.

One of the biggest revelations was that Page, who was having an affair with then-FBI agent Peter Strzok, said that the infamous “insurance policy” text message was referring to the Russia investigation.

“During her interview with the Judiciary Committee in July 2018, Page was questioned at length about that text — and essentially confirmed this referred to the Russia investigation while explaining that officials were proceeding with caution, concerned about the implications of the case while not wanting to go at ‘total breakneck speed’ and risk burning sources as they presumed Trump wouldn’t be elected anyway,” Fox News reported. “Further, she confirmed investigators only had a ‘paucity’ of evidence at the start.”

Page and Strzok, who both hated then-candidate Donald Trump and were pro-Hillary Clinton, were involved in the FBI’s initial counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign.

In an August 15, 2016 text message, Strzok texted Page: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in [deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe’s] office that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…”

Ben Shapiro wrote the following about the text message when it was released in December 2017:

This looks an awful lot like motivation for launching an investigation into Trump in order to sink Trump as a hedge against Trump’s victory. The FBI’s investigation into Russian governmental interference in the election began in July 2016, just weeks before Strzok’s text message. And that means that there is now more of a smoking gun of FBI corruption against Trump than there is of Trump colluding with Russia.

Page also indicated that the decision to not charge Clinton with felony gross negligence in her email scandal came at the direction of the Obama Justice Department.

“We 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,” Page said. “And we had multiple conversations, multiple conversations with the Justice Department about charging gross negligence.”

Page continued: “And the Justice Department’s assessment was that it was both constitutionally vague, so that they did not actually feel that they could permissibly bring that charge, and also that it had either never been done or had only been done once like 99 years ago. And so they did not feel that they could sustain a charge.”

“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,” Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) said to Page.

“That’s correct,” Page responded.

Ratcliffe tweeted out an excerpt of Page’s testimony, writing: “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.”

    Noe the Justice Dept needs to go after Clinton, the FBI, and it’s own officials not only for the original offenses but also for the prolific cover up of it. I believe they are also guilty of “trumping up” charges on President Trump and his administration in order to take attention off of the demongogs’ misdeeds and crimes. However, although we can do very little to ignite the fire against the dems, we the American conservative class have and will never forget how this was all swept under the rug, and how Hillary stated it did not matter how or why Americans were killed in Bengasi.

    Imagine that! Just as we the American People thought all along it was Obama that Kept HIllary from being charged because he knew he would be caught up in this scandal too because he knew about this illegal server of hers all along and he lied about it Right!?
    What a bunch of disgusting Hypocritical LIARS!! I say haul all of their asses in for a real Trial this time! How about a REAL investigation on HIllary wouldn’t that be a novel idea!? Haul that bitch in and also Obama in FRONT of the Americans and have a trial! We deserve to hear the truth about all of their disgusting scandals I’m sure more will come out of this!!! Outrageous!

    Realizing the corruption that is and has been for many years before Trump and since involving the FBI, DOJ, Congressional members and IRS, one could continue and with good cause label the entire governments of Federal and States as corrupt and untrustworthy to the citizens of this country. That in itself would be justification for non-compliance of their authority given to them by “The People” as their representatives. Now if not a complete dolt one realizes the government’s need to violate their prime directive in protecting and to never violate the Constitution. Especially the 2nd Amendment along with the others. There is not one reason to respect any aspect of our government and the civil servants employed by “The People.” There are no words or reason for the citizens to comply with any law that compromises the Constitution in any way that we can decipher without lawyers and judges that masquerade as Oath keepers to our Constitution. Yes, they call that contempt and contempt we should all have of those that wish and are attempting to remove our rights as Free People.

      Spot on ! The truth of it is, we have been sold out by BOTH political parties ! Our last 5 Presidents refused to enforce our immigration laws, none on the level of Obama but the numbers do add up. Somewhere between 30-50 M illegal aliens in the US is the best guesstimate. Nobody really knows as more keep pouring in daily.
      My guess is both Obama, Killary and many others will never be prosecuted for anything.
      Far to many of our elected officials in both parties were more than willing to sell their soul and their country for money, power and votes. WE let them get away with it !

    The entire system has been infected and is now nothing more than a smoldering pile of corruption. I would have more faith in any investigation if it was run by the Russians. At least they admit they hate us.

    Someone needs to check all the Congressional records of Loretta Lynch’s testimony to see if she ever said under oath that the decisions about whether to charge Hillary with a crime was totally up to the FBI. I seem to remember her saying that she would accept Comey’s recommendations. Jail time?

    So what? Everyone of the criminals in the Obama administration are still walking free. They took the money and ran (and, got away with it) is the saying I believe.
    Lock them ALL up from Obama to Clinton and all their co-conspirators!

      you notice all the crooked illegals things the dems did and they all still running free. On the other hand you have Rep who lied to Congress serving time. Double standard but then who is to blame for not going after them. The Rep with no balls. I voted once in my lifetime for a dem but I am so disgusted with the do nothing Rep not sure I can continue to vote for them. I have for 54 years now so did not just start voting Long record of voting Rep but totally disgusting with them now. I want to see what the new AG will do and if he does not go after these crooks I am done with the Rep Many of my friends and family feel the same so they will feel the backlash for their do nothing attitude.

    If this is TRUE that Obama told the FBI NOT to charge Hillary Clinton, then Obama needs to be PROSECUTED for collusion AS WELL AS OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE…the crooked bastard.

    They’ll all skate. The Clintons and Obamas are basically untouchable. All of this evidence over and over and no charges!

    They are reving up Mueller’s unsuccessful VERY expensive investigation of our Clean President and finding more garbage in the Swamp condoned by Obama to “leave Hillary alone.” FBI Ordered not to charge Hillary with Gross Negligence in her (MIS) handling of Classified Documents. Sickening. Disgusting. Hurtful and harmful. Now Mueller is pushing the new AG to imprison the President’s Children and Son in Law. How can We the People Allow this abomination happen?

    I find it interesting that they are looking at College entrances and scams. Didn’t Obama have a questionable College history as well and had everything sealed so no one could see it?

    I will guarantee you nothing will happen, just look at everything that has come out on Hillary’s crimes all sworn and supposedly true and proven BUT not one thing has happened to her and never will, you do not make millions and not have your arse covered like these scum cunts, look at obuma, they are all the same.

    so why isnt this being broad cast all over the media? I haven’t even heard FOX talking about it. they are more concerned with Airplanes, border issues and rich people paying bribes to get their kids into college! Its stuff like this that makes me nuts, FOX is the ONLY main stream media company that is GOP friendly, they should spend ALL their time on the issues we all face daily from the dems. I can get non political news from my local tv news…
