- The Facts:Transcripts representing 370 pages worth of testimony from former FBI Lawyer Lisa Page’s closed-door meeting with Congress in July 2018 were finally released to the public on Tuesday.
- Reflect On:Are we seeing a pattern in the slow but orderly release of political information that is ultimately in service to our awakening?
Those of us who are truth-seekers and investigators of information that is being hidden from us would probably like nothing better than to have all classified and secret information revealed at once. It is a source of anger and frustration that so much is hidden, and other people continue to hold power over when such information is disclosed. Even with the Assange Wikileaks dumps, the information is shared piecemeal, and certain subjects are still hidden from us.
But let’s think about it for a moment. If all the information were released all at once, how would we process it? For most of us, would it not simply become a stack of intimidating data that we wouldn’t have the time to get to and eventually ignore?
Instead of ruing this lack of control over the situation, we would do well to start noticing patterns in the way information is released to the public. It seems that when certain information is revealed is as important as whatis revealed. This is not to say that these processes always have humanity’s best interests at heart, but the timing often seems to pertain to the public’s ability as a whole to take in new information and slowly shift their understanding and awareness of what is going on underneath the veneer of mainstream perception.
Lisa Page’s Testimony Revealed
Take the example of former FBI Lawyer Lisa Page’s closed-door testimony to Congress in July 2018, where she spoke of matters such as the FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton’s private server abuse. Transcripts representing 370 pages worth of testimony were finally released to the public on Tuesday by Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA). This means members of Congress have known about this information for 8 months already, and have decided that now the public can know about it as well.
The biggest revelation that seems to be afforded by this release of information is that Loretta Lynch and the Department of Justice actually ordered the FBI not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for storing classified information on an unsecured server. The conversation from the transcript between Page and Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) is included in his tweet below:

In the transcript, Ratcliffe’s full sentence, interrupted by Page’s answer, was “You’re not going to charge gross negligence because we’re the prosecutors and we’re telling you we’re not going to bring a case based on that.” All in all, this indicates that Loretta Lynch made the decision to tell the FBI not to bring an indictment against Hillary Clinton.
This Fox news article elaborates on the details of Loretta Lynch’s decision:
Page also testified that the DOJ and FBI had “multiple conversations … about charging gross negligence,” and the DOJ decided that the term was “constitutionally vague” and “had either never been done or had only been done once like 99 years ago,” and so “they did not feel they could sustain a charge.”
