McCabe testifies at the possible distortions in Russia, Clinton probes
House Intelligence Chairman Nunes and his team investigate the FBI deputy director’s involvement, if any, with the Fusion of GPS-dossier; James Rosen has the details for the” Special report.’
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe testified behind closed doors for nearly eight hours Tuesday on Capitol Hill, in the midst of calls for his dismissal over allegations of conflicts of interest and anti-Trump political prejudice in the law enforcement bureau.
McCabe’s hearing before the House Intelligence Committee had been rescheduled from last week, was the latest development in a controversy swirling around text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa page, who worked at Special Counsel Robert Müller Russia probe.
McCabe, it was assumed that the “Andy”, to which Strzok and the page referred to in your messages.
“I’ll be a bit surprised if (McCabe), is still an employee of the FBI by this time next week,” U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S. C., a member of the house panel, told Fox News a few days ago.
Gowdy and other members of the Committee were tight-lipped about the details of McCabe’s testimony on Tuesday, and the most avoided conversation with reporters. But the Committee’s ranking member,U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., McCabe, “said a professional FBI agent,” and that he does not understand, “the calls from some to fire him.”
Strzok has been released from Müller Russia-the probe is in connection with a series of anti-Trump-messages, including those calls Trump a “threat” and a “disgusting human.” But a certain text sent by the agent caused great concern, and seemed to imply McCabe.
“I want to believe that the path that you threw out for consideration in Andy’ s office, there is no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t the risk,” Strzok wrote Aug. 15, 2016. “It is like insurance in the unlikely event that you die before you are 40.”
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., said last week that the text was “very troubling” because it would have implied to the agent “a plan to take measures to ensure that Donald Trump is not the elected President of the United States at the highest levels of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”
The legislature can also in question McCabe on down the DOJ downgraded the official Bruce ear, and his wife Nellie’s ear. The official had unknown meeting with Fusion of GPS, the company produced the infamous anti-Trump dossier with salacious allegations about the candidate’s trump card. Nellie’s ear worked in the Fusion of GPS to trump issues.
Republican members of the Committee were expected, moreover, that the press McCabe conflicts on questions of interests and whether he recused himself from the Hillary Clinton E-Mail inquiry. McCabe’s wife in 2015, it ran for a state Senate seat in Virginia, and received money from donors associated with the Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.
McCabe was named the Agency’s Deputy Director in January of 2016 by then-FBI Director James Comey. He served briefly as Deputy Director of the FBI, after Comey was triggered by trump in may.
