Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016 about prepping Comey because "potus wants to know everything we're doing." Senate investigators told Fox News this text raises questions about Obama's personal involvement in the Clinton email investigation.
Mr. Ratcliffe. I saw that. I saw a series of emails about that.
But my question, the question I had was: He requested all of those
in the June 2616 timeframe. He wrote his memo, what we'vereferred
to as the exoneration memo, on May 2nd of 2616. So'he made the request
to look at the cases to see the cases weeks after he'd already written
a draft ruling out gross negligence.
So the primary look in this investigation was mishandling of classified information, right. And so what we were looking for in particular was some indicia of knowledge that she knew these particular communications shouldn't be traversing the server she set up, that they were, in fact, classified, that there was a sort of purposeful -- or, you know, an intent to mishandle classified information.
1. Intending to be legally bound, I hereby accept the obligations contained in this Agreement in consideration of my being granted access to classified information. As used in this Agreement, classified information is marked or unmarked classified information, including oral communications, that is classified under the standards of Executive Order 13526, or under any other Executive order or statute that prohibits the unauthorized disclosure of information in the interest of national security; and unclassified information that meets the standards for classification and is in the process of a classification determination as provided in sections 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4(e) of Executive Order 13526, or under any other Executive order or statute that requires protection for such information in the interest of national security. I understand and accept that by being granted access to classified information, special confidence and trust shall be placed in me by the United States Government.
2. I hereby acknowledge that I have received a security indoctrination concerning the nature and protection of classified information, including the procedures to be followed in ascertaining whether other persons to whom I contemplate disclosing this information have been approved for access to it, and that I understand these procedures.
3. I have been advised that the unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized retention, or negligent handling of classified information by me could cause damage or irreparable injury to the United States or could be used to advantage by a foreign nation. I hereby agree that I will never divulge classified information to anyone unless: (a) I have officially verified that the recipient has been properly authorized by the United States Government to receive it; or (b) I have been given prior written notice of authorization from the United States Government Department or Agency (hereinafter Department or Agency) responsible for the classification of information or last granting me a security clearance that such disclosure is permitted. I understand that if I am uncertain about the classification status of information, I am required to confirm from an authorized official that the information is unclassified before I may disclose it, except to a person as provided in (a) or (b), above. I further understand that I am obligated to comply with laws and regulations that prohibit the unauthorized disclosure of classified information
7. I understand that all classified information to which I have access or may obtain access by signing this Agreement is now and will remain the property of, or under the control of the United States Government unless and until otherwise determined by an authorized official or final ruling of a court of law. I agree that I shall return all classified materials which have, or may come into my possession or for which I am responsible because of such access: (a) upon demand by an authorized representative of the United States Government; (b) upon the conclusion of my employment or other relationship with the Department or Agency that last granted me a security clearance or that provided me access to classified information; or (c) upon the conclusion of my employment or other relationship that requires access to classified information. If I do not return such materials upon request, I understand that this may be a violation of sections 793 and/or 1924, title 18, United States Code, a United States criminal law

You know what is really funny?
The State Department's Employee handbook for new employees states along the lines:
Due to the nature of the business of the state department, most of the communications within the state department are classified.
New employees know this...but the Secretary of State didn't have a clue?
And I'm looking at a text that you sent to Special Agent Strzok:
Trump's not ever going to become President, right? Right?
And then the agent who originated this counterintelligence
investigation who is a point of contact, who drafted theinitiating
document responding: No, no, he's not. We'll stop it.
Ms. P_age_. Right. Well, so, that's a different sort of context,
which I'm happy to explain. The one thing I'll note, I just think it
might maybe alleviate some concern, the reason that Pete opened it is
that it was a Sunday. So the reason he's both the originator and like
the approver is because it was a Sunday, and so there's nobody around.
ignorance is absolutely an excuse of the law, but only if you're a Clinton, apparently.
