Uh-oh! Looks like somebody’s got some ‘splainin’ to do!
According to new documents released as part of a “document dump” by House Judiciary Committee Republicans on Tuesday, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page admitted "under oath" that “the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ [Department of Justice] not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information,” according to a Twitter post by Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) that included a transcript of the alleged exchange.

After news of the possible nefarious dealings by the Obama DOJ concerning a potential investigation of failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, President Trump tweeted out his disdain for the news, calling the Obama DOJ a “corrupt machine.”
The president tweeted the following:
The just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine. Hopefully, justice will finally be served. Much more to come!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 13, 2019
Page was previously romantically involved with fired FBI special agent Peter Strzok and exchanged text messages with each other, one of which claiming that they would hopefully “stop” Trump from being elected to the Oval Office, among other messages.
