Where’s the outrage over this?
The press has been beside itself that President Trump allegedly tried to influence an investigation of his former National Security advisor, Michael Flynn, by casually asking then-FBI Director James Comey if there might be a way to go easy on him.
Obviously, Flynn got hammered anyway.
Now we have evidence that the Obama Justice Department actually ordered the FBI to back away from charging Hillary Clinton as she ran to replace her friend Barack Obama as president. And of course, no charges were filed.
According to Fox News:
An internal chart prepared by federal investigators working on the so-called “Midyear Exam” probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails, exclusively reviewed by Fox News, contained the words “NOTE: DOJ not willing to charge this” next to a key statute on the mishandling of classified information. The notation appeared to contradict former FBI Director James Comey’s repeated claims that his team made its decision that Clinton should not face criminal charges independently.
Fox News has confirmed the chart served as a critical tip that provided the basis for Texas Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe’s explosive questioning of former FBI lawyer Lisa Page last year, in which Page agreed with Ratcliffe’s characterization that the DOJ had told the FBI that “you’re not going to charge gross negligence.” A transcript of Page’s remarks was published Tuesday as part of a major document release by the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Georgia Rep. Doug Collins.
