Disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will speak at a Democratic fundraiser in Lancaster, Pennsylvania this month, dissolving the theory federal law enforcement officials are “straight shooters” with no political leanings.
CNN analyst Andrew McCabe will be the keynote speaker at a Democratic Party fundraiser in Pennsylvania in September.
News of McCabe’s invitation to headline the Lancaster County Democrats’ annual fall banquet comes as the Justice Department considers whether to indict the 21-year FBI veteran for lying to the bureau about authorizing leaks to the media in October 2016.
McCabe, who was hired by CNN as a law enforcement analyst in August, said he plans to discuss the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, the Mueller report and his interactions with President Donald Trump during his 45-minute speech.
Believe it or not, I think this is a tremendous idea. Who better to represent the Democrat Party’s ideology than a criminal? A fired Deputy Director who may be indicted before Christmas is the perfect spokesperson for the Democrats.
The Office of the Inspector General released its report on the FBI’s actions leading up the the 2016 presidential election. The results are damning, especially toward to former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
“[W]e concluded that McCabe’s decision to confirm the existence of the CF investigation through an anonymously sourced quote, recounting the content of a phone call with a senior department official in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of department leadership, was clearly not within the public interest exception.”
Sessions said that McCabe “made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor − including under oath − on multiple occasions.”
“Lacked candor” is a polite way to confirm McCabe lied.
That leak confirmed the existence of the probe, which then-FBI Director James Comey had up to that point refused to do. The report says that McCabe “lacked candor” in a conversation with Comey when he said that he had not authorized the disclosure and didn’t know who had done so.
The IG also found that he also lacked candor when questioned by FBI agents on multiple occasions since that conversation, where he told agents that he did authorize the disclosure and did not know who was responsible.
Remember McCabe, like Comey, regularly insisted he was the white knight during this debacle. His principles were unquestioned, and his honor was unchallenged. In the end, the OIG report confirms what we knew all along; McCabe, and most likely Comey, were more about upholding their reputations than they were about upholding the law.
Disgraced former FBI hacks James Comey – seen above, lying to Congress – and Andrew McCabe disagree about which criminal authorized agents to leak investigational details to the leftist media.
Former FBI Director James Comey told internal investigators at the Justice Department that he could not recall McCabe telling him about having authorized FBI officials to talk to a reporter about an ongoing investigation, the sources said…
Another source familiar with the matter argued the discrepancy between the two accounts is more about the fact they are recalling the interaction differently than a dispute about what took place, saying both were acting in “good faith.”
“They recall it differently,” the source said. “Andy thinks in good faith he told him, and Comey in good faith says he wasn’t told.”
Apparently the phrase “in good faith” is FedSpeak for lying. I sincerely hope to see these two before Congress, under oath, explaining their actions during their ridiculous reign.
Disgraced former FBI drone Andrew McCabe opened a criminal investigation into Attorney General Jeff Sessions without the AG’s knowledge. But please continue to explain why McCabe is an honorable person whose reputation is above reproach.
Nearly a year before Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired senior FBI official Andrew McCabe for what Sessions called a “lack of candor,” McCabe oversaw a federal criminal investigation into whether Sessions lacked candor when testifying before Congress about contacts with Russian operatives, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.
One source told ABC News that Sessions was not aware of the investigation when he decided to fire McCabe last Friday less than 48 hours before McCabe, a former FBI deputy director, was due to retire from government and obtain a full pension, but an attorney representing Sessions declined to confirm that.
This despicable partisan hack did not deserve to be fired; he deserved to be brought before Congress and criminally charged for his multiple, um, “transgressions” while serving in the FBI.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reportedly considering firing corrupt FBI stooge Andrew McCabe mere days before he is set to retire.
The FBI determined in an internal review that former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should be terminated, according to a report from The New York Times. That leaves Attorney General Jeff Sessions in charge of determining whether to fire McCabe, who is set to retire with full benefits on Sunday.
The FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility issued the recommendation after receiving information from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz. The watchdog has been conducting an investigation of the bureau’s handling of the Clinton email investigation.
Horowitz has reportedly determined that McCabe encouraged FBI officials to speak to the media about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
In a perfect world, leaking details of a criminal investigation should not only be a fireable offense, but also an arrestable offense. We do not live in a perfect world, but I sincerely hope Sessions fires McCabe, and costs him his considerable pension.
The FBI’s second-in-command stepped down from his post yesterday, allegedly at the urging of FBI Director Christopher Wray.
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe — one of President Trump’s top targets in his running feud with the bureau — stepped down Monday under pressure from Director Christopher Wray.
McCabe was expected to retire for the bureau this year. But his sudden exit came after Wray expressed concern about an upcoming inspector general’s report about McCabe’s and other senior FBI officials’ performance during the 2016 presidential campaign, when the feds were investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails and Team Trump’s ties to Russia, The New York Times reported.
Wray offered McCabe, 49, a transfer that the veteran FBI man saw as a demotion. So he decided to pack it in on Monday.
It’s worth noting McCabe decided to “step down” – although sources have reported McCabe was asked to do so – a day after FBI Director Christopher Wray read the eagerly anticipated FISA abuse memo.
It is also worth noting McCabe is figuratively gone, but is being allowed to hang around until he can secure his pension. So the taxpayers can fund this corrupt, partisan hack’s retirement fund.
