The report asserts among many that McCabe misled the DOJ watchdog and the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility when questioned under oath about the leaks. Basically, he is a liar. And officially proven. This is the same guy that was in charge of Hillary’s investigation and Russia Conspiracy. More to come…
Just curious, does anyone really give the slightest damn about Hillary anymore? To me, she’s irrelevant. History. Done. Next!
It is not complicated for most. The relevancy is members of the FBI and the Department of Justice did everything they could to exonerate Hillary Clinton for her crimes and incriminate Donald Trump with a non-existent crime. The additional reports by the DOJ IG will document the complete picture for anyone slow on the uptake. First report shows Deputy Director of FBI was a political arm of the Hillary Campaign.
We know already that FBI and the Obama DOJ were in collusion to ensure their preferred election. This will lead to criminal charges. If there is Justice at all.
Edit: In the Washington DC swamp, here’s how things are done.
1. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein writes a letter to Trump recommends Trump to fire FBI Director Comey
2. Trump fires FBI Director Comey
3. Comey leakes to media through his friend.
4. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein hires Robert Mueller to investigate
5. First thing Robert Mueller investigates is the firing of FBI Director Comey as obstruction of justice which Rod Rosenstein recommended.
Former FBI Director Interview with ABC News, April 15, 2018
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Did you tell him that the Steele Dossier had been financed by his political opponents?
JAMES COMEY: No. I didn’t—I didn’t think I used the term “Steele Dossier,” I just talked about additional material.
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Did he—but did he have a right to know that?
JAMES COMEY: That it’d been financed by his political opponents? I don’t know the answer to that. I—it wasn’t necessary for my goal, which was to alert him that we had this information. Again, I was clear on whether it’s true or not, it’s important that you know, both because of the counterintelligence reason and so you know that this maybe going to hit the media.
It is absolutely extraordinary! This is the guy that was the FBI Director and giving National Security Briefings to the President. He admits on TV that his goal did not include telling the President the Dossier that was used to get a warrant was financed by the opposition party!
And he admits this… Amazing!
“The Justice Department’s inspector general has sent a criminal referral regarding former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to the US attorney’s office in Washington”
Like Mueller’s investigation, we will see what the final outcome is. So far, lots of indictments, confessions, etc. We’ll see what happens with McCabe. I’m confident in the legal system (generally). Better to have all this in the courts rather than subject to the whims of politicians. Hopefully Trump will leave Mueller alone and just let the chips fall where they may.
Comey’s behavior is even worse than that clip suggests, because his released memos show that the Trump briefing was a trap. CNN had the dossier but couldn’t report on it because it was, to quote Comey, ‘Salacious and unverified’. So they needed a newsworthy ‘hook’ to justify publishing its existence. Comey intentionally used the President’s briefing, which was immediately leaked to CNN, to give them justification to publish it. In other words, they concocted a scheme to bypass journalistic standards and report on a dossier damaging to a President that had not been remotely verified and which was basically opposition research funded by the Clinton campaign.
The whole thing stinks. And I hate Trump.
