While Democrat and select Republican backlash to President Donald Trump’s November victory is not surprising, what is surprising is the man now at the center of control over what is loosely called ‘The Russia investigation.’
That investigation began in summer, 2016, before the election. To date, not one substantive piece of evidence has been presented to Americans in said investigation.
Get this. The FBI deputy director overseeing the investigation of the Trump campaign is also being investigated according to a left of center media outlet.
Now that Trump fired the FBI director James Comey, second in command of the agency has stepped up to the plate. Andrew McCabe has drama of his own going, and we have every reason to question his judgment, starting with his wife’s perception of his role in her losing campaign.
Numerous media have pointed out McCabe’s wife Jill received money from a top Clinton crony, Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia. The Wall Street Journal and other media reported this. What makes it sketchy? Jill McCabe got hundreds of thousands from a Democrat PAC and from a PAC aligned with McAuliffe, according to Fox News and other media. Mr. McCabe did not disclose those donations on federal forms.
He also played a big role in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s off-the-government-grid servers, some containing evidence classified information had been processed.
I noticed on Twitter some posts by the candidate who beat McCabe’s wife in a Virginia state Senate contest, Sen. Dick Black. Seeing those posts, I remembered the McCabe dustup and I remembered his wife denying he played a role in her campaign. Newsweek reported Mrs. McCabe’s remarks given to The Wall Street Journal:
“Once I decided to run,” Jill McCabe said, according to The Wall Street Journal, “my husband had no formal role in my campaign other than to be a supportive husband to me and our children. As a federal official…everyone who participated in our campaign understood and respected that he could not participate.”
What we have here is a statement at odds with facts.
The man who won the election Mrs. McCabe ran in, Sen. Black, put some posts on Twitter. Multiple posts allege Mr. McCabe certainly did campaign for his wife, on social media and elsewhere. I included snips of two of those posts here.
I came across a headline a couple days ago—at Newsweek, with the article I linked to above. The headline reads:
“FBI ACTING DIRECTOR ANDREW MCCABE ALSO BEING INVESTIGATED OVER CLINTON EMAILS”
So. We had Comey acting as investigator, judge, and jury, inappropriately determining Mrs. Clinton had no ill “intent” when she carelessly handled her email and servers.
We now have McCabe (under investigation himself) who did advocate for his wife whose campaign benefited immensely from Democrats’ donations, investigating our Republican president’s campaign.
I keep hearing members of Congress praise the FBI under Comey. I keep hearing media use the exact same words in their collective meme attacking Trump.
How is it we are supposed to trust an FBI deputy director who’s under investigation himself?
How is it we are even supposed to trust our intel community after a former CIA spook attempted to play spoiler for the Republican candidate and a former high ranking CIAer pledged eternal fealty to getting Clinton the 2nd in the White House?
What this whole fiasco looks like to me is a collusion between bureaucrats and the left in both parties to bring a legitimately elected president down.
If that doesn’t scare you, nothing will.
