FBI: Deep-State Leadership
Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's congressional testimony highlights major conflict of interest.
As Americans celebrate the good Christmas news of huge tax cuts, it’s worth noting that another of the year’s biggest stories continues to slowly unfold. That would be the rampant corruption infecting the FBI. Fox News reports, “FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe testified behind closed doors for nearly eight hours Tuesday on Capitol Hill, amid calls for his firing over allegations of conflicts of interest and anti-Trump political prejudice at the law enforcement bureau.” House investigators were led by the imminently capable Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). While the testimony was not public, there was some indication of discrepancies with previous witness testimony, and there could be subpoenas handed down next week for personnel at the FBI and Justice Department.
McCabe is under fire for conflict of interest in three areas. He is believed to be the “Andy” referenced in texts between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his FBI mistress Lisa Page — texts that slam then-candidate Donald Trump as a “menace” and “loathsome human,” as well as discuss an “insurance policy” in case Trump won. House investigators are interested in determining the role McCabe played in what Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) worried might be “a plan to take action to make sure that Donald Trump does not get elected president of the United States at the highest levels of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”
Investigators also likely questioned McCabe regarding demoted Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and his wife, Nellie. Ohr, who is likely to be subpoenaed, had undisclosed meetings with Fusion GPS, the firm that produced the phony “dossier” — paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC. At the same time, Ohr’s wife worked for Fusion GPS on Trump-related matters. McCabe reportedly told the congressional intelligence committee that he couldn’t recall when he first learned that Clinton and the DNC funded the Fusion project, “despite the reported existence of documents with McCabe’s own signature on them establishing his knowledge of the dossier’s financing and provenance,” Fox News adds.
Finally, McCabe’s wife ran as a Democrat for a state Senate seat in Virginia and took nearly $700,000 in contributions from donors like Terry McAuliffe linked to the Clinton machine. That was at the same time McCabe supervised the “probe” into Clinton’s illegal email server. He finally recused himself — one week prior to the election.
McCabe, Ohr, Strzok and a host of others lurking in powerful government positions are the very kind of “deep state” folks loyal to Barack Obama who are busy undermining Donald Trump at every turn.
