Circa brand strengthens with coverage of latest investigation of FBI’s McCabe

Circa News is leading coverage of investigations targeting FBI acting director Andrew McCabe.

While 24/7 news cycles obsess over Russia as fall-guy for Democrats’ bitter loss of the presidency in 2016, other sites like Circa are covering critical news.

The news about McCabe is definitely critical, considering the pies his fingers are in.

At present, Circa is one of the only sites giving McCabe the attention his story warrants. 

The latest coverage includes allegations of possible violations of the Hatch Act by McCabe. Photos of McCabe show him wearing campaign shirts touting his wife during her run for a state seat in the Virginia Senate in 2015. He appeared to be at a public event, but that event was reportedly not a campaign rally.

Besides that, McCabe’s reported participation in a meeting with longtime Clinton loyalist Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) raised eyebrows:

“Meanwhile, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s office released to Circa under the Freedom of Information Act documents showing McCabe attended a meeting with his wife and the governor on a Saturday in March 2015 specifically to discuss having Jill McCabe run for state Senate in Virginia as a Democrat.

“This is a candidate recruitment meeting. McCabe is seriously considering running against State Senator Dick Black. You have been asked to close the deal,” the briefing memo for McAuliffe read.”

What made the meeting more troubling? An investigation was underway when McCabe met with McAuliffe:

“At the time of the meeting, published reports indicate agents in the Washington field office were involved in both a probe of McAuliffe and of the governor’s close friend, Hillary Clinton’s and her private email account.”

At that time, McCabe had a leadership position in the Washington Field Office for the FBI.

In a letter in May, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Judiciary Committee, summed up questions about McCabe’s actions.

Considering actions by McCabe’s former boss James Comey, questions have arisen about the FBI’s politicization and also that of intel agencies across the US government spectrum.

Circa is the latest addition to my definitely diverse reading list. I try to read commentary and news adopting a variety of viewpoints. If you only read at sites you agree with, you are boxing yourself into a corner.

Circa News hasn’t exactly been a household word. Brands like Vice dominate in the youth market, and they usually have a left of center philosophy.

Circa had suspended publishing after attempting to obtain ample funding, but in 2015 it was acquired by media power Sinclair Broadcast Group. The site then relaunched.

President Donald Trump has nominated Christopher Wray to lead the FBI, and the nomination awaits action by the US Senate.
