Page's statement "makes former USA attorney general Loretta Lynch look blatantly dishonest", says the Washington Examiner's Quin Hillyer. Page and fired now-fired FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, who engaged in an extra-marital affair, sent anti-Trump text messages to one another during the 2016 election.
Describing in vague terms the conversations at the FBI around the time the Russian Federation investigation was opened, Strzok said there was debate about protecting a source, and Page argued that because it was unlikely Trump would get elected, investigators could move slowly and not put the source at risk.
"There are two questions that I think the public deserves an answer to: Did they short-circuit the Clinton e-mail investigation because they wanted her to win, and they knew if they charged her she might lose?" It could be construed as a convenient excuse for a cover-up, but she continued, "The Clinton investigation was whether she mishandled classified information".
Titans acquire Tannehill from Dolphins
According to Ian Rappoport of NFL Network, the Dolphins are receiving a 4th round pick in 2020 and the 2019 7th round pick. He's also battled injuries for nearly all of his career, and the Titans have struggled when Mariota has missed time.
"The American people are overwhelmingly for the report being made public". Both interviews took place last summer. Page wrote to Strzok on August 8, 2016.
John Ratcliffe (R-TX) posted a transcript excerpt of Page's 2018 July testimony to social media in which she made the explosive admission to him.
However, the transcripts released on Thursday show that Strzok told the committee Mueller never asked him if the sentiment reflected in that text had any influence on decisions made during the Trump-Russia probe.
Champions League quarterfinal draw: See who matches up
Man United was drawn Friday to face the five-time champions, who beat the storied English club in the 2009 and 2011 finals. Should Jurgen Klopp negotiate a home clean sheet win over Porto in the first leg, even better for their title odds.
Strzok recalled that he disagreed that a candidate's electability should be part of the equation.
Strzok also said Comey initially concluded Clinton had shown "gross negligence" in how she handled classified information - a finding that could lead to charges - but dialed that back to "extreme carelessness" by the time he finished his memo.
How could the FBI conduct an unbiased investigation and reach an independent conclusion if its agents were told not to go after the top target - Hillary Clinton - by the DOJ? It was after that call that Rudolph W. Giuliani went on TV claiming to have insider knowledge from Federal Bureau of Investigation agents; Strzok said he knew of no agents talking to Giuliani.
