Calls are now being made at the highest levels for a full investigation into "obstruction of justice" following claims former Presdient Barack Obama's Justice Department blocked the FBI from investigating Hillary Clinton in 2016.

On Wednesday, former NYPD Commissioner Benard Kerik warned that American citizens will “never have faith” in the US Government until the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe is fully investigated without political bias.

The calls have followed the bombshell revelations from former FBI legal counsel Lisa Page this week.

On Tuesday, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) provided a transcript from Page's July 2018 testimony before Congress in which she stated under oath that the Department of Justice ordered the FBI, under then-Director James Comey, not to charge Clinton with “gross negligence” for mishandling classified information.

In response to calls for an investigation following Page's remarks, Kerik said on Twitter:

"Until that happens, and until the senior level members of the FBI and Justice Department are held accountable for their unethical and criminal conduct, Americans will never have faith and confidence in our government."

House Judiciary Committee member Ratcliffe posted an excerpt from the transcript of Page’s 2018 July testimony to social media in which she made the explosive admission to him while under oath.

“So let me if I can, I know I’m testing your memory,” Ratcliffe asked Page.

"But when you say advice you got from the Department, you’re making it sound like it was the Department that told you: You’re not going to charge gross negligence because we’re the prosecutors and we’re telling you we’re not going to–"

The former FBI lawyer then interrupted by saying “That is correct,” as the Texas Republican concluded his sentence with “bring a case based on that.”

According to Page, the DOJ, which was led by Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the time, had “multiple conversations” regarding possible charges for Clinton with respect to gross negligence.

“[T]hey did not feel they could sustain a charge,” Page said of the Justice Department.

According to Breitbart, Page and fired now-fired FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, who engaged in an extra-marital affair, sent anti-Trump text messages to one another during the 2016 election.

Republican lawmakers have pointed to the messages as evidence of political bias inside the bureau.

Then-FBI Director James Comey announced in a July 2016 press conference that while Clinton, then the Democrat presidential nominee, had been “extremely careless” in handling classified information, “no reasonable prosecutor” would attempt to bring a case against her.

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.”

“Hopefully, justice will finally be served. Much more to come!” he added.
