Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, made a bold vow Tuesday to show the American people the extent of corruption within the Justice Department with its handling of the investigations involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Trump.

"When you have the. corrupt triumvirate of [former FBI Agent Peter] Strzok, [former FBI Deputy Director Andrew] McCabe and Page, when they have been involved from day one from the email controversy, through the original Russian Federation investigation, through the appointment of [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller, this just shows that there is a two-tiered system", Collins said.

But Page, in her testimony, said that in fact, the FBI did investigate in order to determine if such a charge against Clinton was warranted-and ultimately decided that such a charge would be "constitutionally vague" and that federal law enforcement "did not feel that they could sustain a charge".
