Former NYPD Commissioner Calls for Obstruction Investigation into Clinton Email Probe

Former NYPD Commissioner Calls for Obstruction Investigation into Clinton Email Probe

"I can tell you that in no way would that extramarital affair have any power in coercing me to do anything other than obeying the law and doing honest, competent investigation", Strzok said.

"No he won't. We'll stop it", Strzok replied.

This entire investigation into Clinton was sparked by the fact that she had used a private email server during her time serving as secretary of state.

Strzok had worked on three major investigations before his firing past year. But his comments in the transcript of the closed-door interview are the most thorough to date explaining a text Strzok sent Page saying they could not take the "risk" of Trump getting elected.

As Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel noted, Graham was referring to DOJ's handling of the Clinton email investigation. In exchange the servers were handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

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. 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.

Former FBI Director James Comey, who spent much of his life as a registered Republican, announced in mid-2016 that Clinton would not be charged with any crimes but denounced her actions as "extremely careless". He also testified that the FBI was not allowed to search Clinton Foundation emails for information pertinent to the investigation, thanks to an agreement between Obama's DOJ and Clinton's lawyers.

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?
