Former President Barack Obama’s DOJ did not want to go ahead with charges of “gross negligence” against Hillary Clinton in 2016.
This came after the FBI was discussing Espionage Charges.
Kind of a big deal…
From Washington Examiner:
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.
Newly released transcripts from Page’s private testimony in front of a joint task force of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees in July 2018 sheds new light on the internal discussions about an investigation into Clinton’s emails. This goes back to the FBI’s “Midyear Exam” investigation, which looked into whether Clinton committed crimes when she sent and received classified information on her unauthorized private email server while serving as secretary of state.
Comey cleared Clinton of all charges in a press conference on July 5, 2016.
Shouldn’t this be headline news? Where’s the mainstream media?
It can’t surprise anyone when Clinton’s name is associated with something mischevious.
It shouldn’t, at least.
The latest tidbit involves the Steele dossier.
From The Hill:
When the annals of mistakes and abuses in the FBI’s Russia investigation are finally written, Bruce Ohr almost certainly will be the No. 1 witness, according to my sources.
The then-No. 4 Department of Justice (DOJ) official briefed both senior FBI and DOJ officials in summer 2016 about Christopher Steele’s Russia dossier, explicitly cautioning that the British intelligence operative’s work was opposition research connected to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and might be biased.
Ohr’s briefings, in July and August 2016, included the deputy director of the FBI, a top lawyer for then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and a Justice official who later would become the top deputy to special counsel Robert Mueller.
2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders doesn’t want Hillary’s help.
The View‘s Meghan McCain asked Sanders, “We’re hearing about a lot of Democratic candidates who are meeting with Hillary Clinton for advice like people like Amy Klobuchar — do you think you’ll do the same?”
Bernie said, “I suspect not…no, she has not called me. Look, we have fundamental differences.”
“Hillary… she has not called me,”

Check out what happens when college students find out these border wall quotes were made by the likes of Schumer, Hillary, and Obama after being told they were made by President Trump.
Hopefully, these kids learned a lesson.
