Skip to comments.Loretta Lynch blocked the prosecution of Hillary Clinton. It's obstruction of justice

Lisa Page testified - last summer- that Loretta Lynch (likely with the knowledge and advice of Obama) blocked the prosecution of Hillary Clinton in 2016:
James Comey had originally drafted a memo describing Clinton's actions as "grossly negligent" but changed it in the final version:
Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page admitted under questioning from Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe last summer that "the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information," the congressman alleged in a social media post late Tuesday, citing a newly unearthed transcript of Page's closed-door testimony.
Page and since-fired FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, who were romantically involved, exchanged numerous anti-Trump text messages in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, and Republicans have long accused the bureau of political bias. But Page's testimony was perhaps the most salient evidence yet that the Justice Department improperly interfered with the FBI's supposedly independent conclusions on Clinton's criminal culpability, Ratcliffe alleged.
"So let me if I can, I know Im testing your memory," Ratcliffe began as he questioned Page under oath, according to a transcript excerpt he posted on Twitter. "But when you say advice you got from the Department, youre making it sound like it was the Department that told you: Youre not going to charge gross negligence because were the prosecutors and were telling you were not going to "
Page interrupted: "That is correct," as Ratcliffe finished his sentence, " -- bring a case based on that."
Gross negligence is a criminal act and there was no way the Obama DOJ was going to allow Clinton to be hit with those charges. The excuse for not charging Clinton was that the statute was "Constitutionally vague." Yet that vagueness was not an option accorded others- including one Kristian Saucier:
Newly reported memos to Congress released Monday showed that language was softened between an early draft and the final copy of former FBI Director James Comeys statement closing out the Hillary Clinton email case.
Originally Comey accused the former secretary of state of being grossly negligent in handling classified information in a draft dated May 2, 2016, but that was modified to claim that Clinton had been extremely careless in a draft dated June 10, 2016. Comey stuck to that modified language when he announced in July 2016 that there would be no charges against Clinton.
A FORMER NAVY MACHINIST mate who admitted taking photos inside a nuclear submarine was sentenced to a year in prison Friday, with a federal judge rebuffing a request for probation in light of authorities deciding not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information on a private email server as secretary of state.Clinton's transgressions were far in excess of Saucier's:
Kristian Sauciers attorneys argued in a court filing last week that Clinton had been "engaging in acts similar to Mr. Saucier" with information of much higher classification. It would be "unjust and unfair for Mr. Saucier to receive any sentence other than probation for a crime those more powerful than him will likely avoid," attorney Derrick Hogan wrote.

Lynch obstructed and Comey colluded.
And Bill Barr is not going to charge her now.
Lynch obstructed as Obama instructed.
I am sick of Republicans being criminally prosecuted for noting and these criminals roam free. When do we get some balls and start racking these criminals up. Where is AG BARR?
Doubtful. Obama didn’t give instructions, He took them.
And MSM is all over this, huge story! /s
Loretta Lynch still has a lot to answer for but she has eluded criminal prosecution so far. (Not in my book, though)
So? They’re Democrats; it’s different.
I’m sure Bill and Hillary are facing charges for pulling strings to get Chelsea into Stanford too. Wasn’t she a backup center on the Stanford football team...?
“Obama didnt give instructions, He took them.”
I believe, as you do, that is the case. HRC and Bill too.
Well, it’s not like Bill Clinton wasn’t out there on the tarmac pleading the case to Loretta Lynch, asking outright that the DOJ back off on the possible prosecution of Herself for crimes of high treason.
Only the most convoluted of reasoning and logic can see anything but the most direct connecting of the dots, which culminated in the essential exoneration of Herself in the summer of 2016.
Herself shall probably never be locked up, but is it possible there is FINALLY enough tarnish of move the Democrats to let Slick and Herself slip into relative obscurity?
Im fed up with this Democrat game of Nobody Can Touch Hillary.
Shes not our goddamn queen.
Shes a lying, thieving, bullying, cheating, murdering, dirty little shit from Nowhere, Illinois.
Do the Democrats REALLY want to destroy this country so that nobody hurts Hillarys feelings?
Because they WILL destroy this country!
If this dirty little shit can get away with any crime she wants to, then guess what?
NOBODY has to follow ANY law or regulation.
ANY LAW OR ANY REGULATION.
This was always known since day one. The sick fact is that NOBODY wanted to do anything about it then nor will they in the future. The joke is on us.
Agreed. I had high hopes Trump was going to bring them to justice but that has proven difficult if not impossible. Meanwhile, guys who worked for Trump are being indicted and sentenced to jail time.
I agree with everything you said. Spot on. It wont happen though until Hillary meets her maker. Then she will be held accountable.
