Recently revealed testimony from former FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s appearance before lawmakers last year indicates that the Obama-era Justice Department essentially ordered the FBI not to charge Hillary Clinton in her email scandal.
The issue of the handling of then-candidate Clinton’s ongoing investigation, as well as its comparison to the then-and-ongoing investigations into President Trump, have cast a dark cloud over the DOJ and FBI throughout the Trump administration.
Now, the recent revelation that Clinton appeared to receive immunity from prosecution in her case has prompted outrage from conservatives, who have continued to demand answers regarding both the Clinton case and the ongoing probe into the president.
