We Need a Special Counsel to Investigate 'Potential Crimes' by FBI, DOJ

WASHINGTON DC- MARCH 24 FBI Director James Comey speaks as U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara of the Southern District of New York listen during a news conference for announcing

Sadly, Page's remarks only confirm what many Republicans have suspected from the very beginning - that biased individuals within the FBI and DOJ abused the bureau's power to tip the 2016 election in Clinton's favor.

Lindsey Graham says he'll support making Mueller's report public only if there's a special counsel created to probe the handling of the Clinton email scandal.

Earlier this month, Rep. Douglas A. Collins (R-Ga.), the House Judiciary Committee's ranking Republican, also released the transcript of an August interview with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, who had contact with the author of a controversial dossier - partially funded by Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee - alleging that Trump had personal and financial ties in Russian Federation.

The DOJ agreed not to look into certain emails on the private servers of Hillary Clinton during its investigation in order to facilitate FBI access to them, released closed-door testimony of former FBI agent Peter Strzok shows.

Reacting to the development Wednesday, President Donald Trump said that Page's testimony confirmed the Obama-era Justice Department was a "broken and corrupt machine". The inspector general concluded in June of a year ago that "the prosecutors' decision was based on their assessment of the facts, the law, and past Department practice in cases involving these statutes".

"Comey testified (under oath) that it was a "unanimous" decision on Crooked Hillary", President Trump tweeted in response to the unearthed testimony. It could be construed as a convenient excuse for a cover-up, but she continued, "The Clinton investigation was whether she mishandled classified information".

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.

"The Justice Department's assessment was that it was both constitutionally vague, so that they did not actually feel that they could permissibly bring that charge", Page told the oversight committee. He said under oath the FBI investigative team unanimously believed Clinton shouldn't be prosecuted.
