DOJ Prevented FBI From Pursuing Gross Negligence Charges Against Clinton

By The Epoch Times. Early in the Hillary Clinton email case, the Department of Justice reached a decision that would have far-reaching implications in the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server. . .

Notably, Comey had been convinced to remove the term “gross negligence” to describe Clinton’s actions from his prepared statement by, among others, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, FBI agent Peter Strzok, senior legal counsel Trisha Anderson, and FBI analyst Jonathan Moffa.

Because of Comey’s statement, many have mistakenly concluded that the FBI acted independently from DOJ influence in their investigation of Clinton. Congressional testimonies by high ranking FBI officials involved in the investigation reveal, however, that this was not the case. . .

Comey had also hinted at the influence exerted by the DOJ over the Clinton investigation in his July recommendation, stating that “there are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent.” . . .

But Lisa Page, a lawyer by training, seemed to have a very different understanding of what would be allowed by the DOJ. Page appeared to indicate during her testimony that because of the DOJ’s position, there was no reason for the FBI to even pursue evidence related to the specific statute of gross negligence.

Hillary Clinton Says She ‘Can’t Imagine’ Running for President Again

By The Hill. Hillary Clinton says she “can’t imagine” running for president again but says in a new interview that she’s “going to keep speaking out” about President Trump.

“I can’t imagine that, no,” the former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said Monday on Tina Brown’s podcast “TBD” when asked whether she could change her mind about running in 2020.

“I am very worried about the direction that Trump and his allies are taking us,” she added. “Just because I’m not running, I’m not going to keep my mouth shut. I’m going to keep speaking out.”

Clinton discussed the challenges for women running for president in 2020, such as Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.).

“How does a woman stand up for herself on the biggest stage in the world without … looking aggressive, maybe a little bit angry, that somebody is behaving like that, being willing to go toe-to-toe when there are so few memories embedded in our collective DNA where women do that?” Clinton said of presidential debates.
