McCabe, the ‘one thing’ that stood out from its fate , call stick with Flynn

nearvideo Meghan McCain stunned Andrew McCabe on ‘View’ with the uncomfortable question

‘The View’co-hosts Meghan McCain, a former FBI Director, Andrew McCabe uncomfortable in an interview Tuesday when asked directly whether he is a source for The New York Times. McCabe denied the allegations and tried to explain himself, to tell his side of the story, he was not sure why James Comey remembered their conversations differently.

In his new book, former FBI assistant Director Andrew McCabe extensive new information, the investigators’ fate offers a adhere of January 2017-interview with former national security Advisor, Michael Flynn in the White house — a breezy conversation, according to McCabe, with all the urgency of a “playdate.”

McCabe wrote in “The threat”, published on Tuesday, that “one thing [Flynn] said, is in my memory”-namely, that “when I told him that people were curious” about his conversations with the Russian Ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, Flynn replied, “You know what I said, because you hear guys probably were.”

Without confirmation, Flynn suspected, McCabe wrote: “I had to ask, as events played: If you thought we heard, why should they lie?” (A Washington Post article published a day before Flynn’s White house conversation with the agent, relying on FBI sources revealed to the public that the FBI bugged had Flynn’s calls and disable him to commit criminal acts.)

According to McCabe, the interview was “very strange”, because “it seemed to [Flynn] was to tell the truth” , the two agents that interviewed him, including the da-triggered FBI agent Peter Strzok. Flynn, the interviewing agent said McCabe, “had a very good memory of events that do not seem he is told chronologically and clearly,” to be”, nervousness or sweating,” and not looked like “side by side” – all of which would have “behavioral signs of deception.”

McCabe wrote that Flynn seemed “completely normal” – even if, on three occasions, Flynn looked at the window and told the agent, “What a beautiful black sky.”

McCabe asserts that Flynn made this memorable comment three times-first, in the “lunch”, then an hour later, and then again briefly. However, McCabe s timeline in the book appeared to contradict, the sentencing memorandum submitted at the end of the last year of Flynn’s lawyers, citing documents of the government.

The memorandum, based on the sealed documents, whose authenticity was not challenged by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the team, claimed that McCabe had called for Flynn to set up the interview at 12:35 on Jan 24, 2017, and that the agents came to the White house at 2:15 p.m.-more than two hours after McCabe claimed that in the book that Flynn first made the comment to the agent that the “beautiful black sky.”


McCabe was fired. in the past year for multiple violations of the FBI code of ethics, including lying to the other FBI officials, and Flynn — against other possible costs, which, with its overseas lobbying-declared in his confession almost 11 months after his interview, that he lied, knowingly, to FBI agents Flynn sold his house in Virginia in the midst of mounting legal costs in advance of his plea deal.

Flynn was never charged with wrongdoing as a result of the substance of his calls with Kislyak.

Not to say In a post-interview session in McCabe ‘ s office, the agent, “they believed [Flynn], and they were not to say that you believed him.” McCabe said the Interviewer, “struck me especially as surprised by the encounter” and “the difficulty of the solution of their observations,” ” what he said was in absolute direct conflict with the information we had.”

Setting up the interview, McCabe wrote, was effortless, as Flynn is the need for a lawyer wiped. In a bomb, court filing last December, Flynn’s legal team pointed out that McCabe confirmed had proposed to engage the justice that would require the Department, when Flynn sought the involvement of the White House Counsel or a personal lawyer-a claim that McCabe in his book.


“The sound was so-wrote-friendly, and detached, as if we planned a playdate for our kids,” McCabe.

The former FBI Deputy Director noted that then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates thought that there was “good reason to believe that Flynn lied to had [Vice President Mike Pence], in terms of its communication with Kislyak as Jan. 12. Pence had appeared on national television and can vouch for Flynn, said Flynn had explained that his communications with Kislyak not, in any way, include the sanctions that was imposed was that of the Obama administration.

However, McCabe said the FBI decided that, while it seemed “plausible” that Flynn was obliged to, being blackmailed by Russia, the concern, “does not seem imminent enough, to the interruption of ongoing investigations.” The FBI, however, has a response to the DOJ “sense of urgency” by “accelerating the FBI’s own work”, including the Flynn-interview.


During the interview, Flynn, the agent said, “really,” when asked if he had tried to convince to escalate Kislyak, a brewing dispute with the US over sanctions, which was published by the Obama administration, according to an FD-302 witness report in the past year.

Flynn granted to other seemingly ambiguous answers to FBI agents’ questions, and at various points suggested that such talks could have happened, or he couldn’t remember if you did that, after the 302. The 302 stated that Flynn was apparently aware of his communications had been monitored, and on some points he thanks to the FBI agent reminded him of some of his talks with Russian officials.

After the interview, Yates went to the White house to explain their concerns, McCabe wrote.

Did the FBI seek revenge against trump for the firing of James Comey?

To reports, the former FBI assistant director Chris Swecker responded that the FBI opened an investigation into whether President Trump was a Russian agent.


Flynn’s legal future remains uncertain. In a heated hearing in December, judge Emmet G. Sullivan Flynn struck back should be tried for treason, before walking his comments. He set a status conference for Flynn’s conviction on Mar. 13 — a significant delay, which he said was necessary to assess, Flynn is working with a separate ongoing criminal proceedings with foreign lobbying human rights violations in Turkey.

The date of Flynn’s ultimate condemnation is undecided, pending, status conference.

Also in the book, McCabe rails against President Obama’s attorney General, Loretta Lynch, should have had for their decisions and actions, while the FBI is investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private E-Mail server during the 2016 campaign, said Lynch recused from the probe, and a special Council has been appointed.

McCabe said Lynch, after the outcry about the meeting should have resigned from the probe which was code-named “semi-annual examination” by the FBI.

“You should wrote recused himself from the middle of the year at this point,” McCabe. “You — you made everything worse.”
