With the Democrats in Washington collectively crapping their pants over the news that the FISA memo they manufactured to obtain an illegal warrant to spy on Trump will soon be released to the American public, swamp creature and acting FBI director Andrew McCabe suddenly announced his resignation. Evidence is emerging that McCabe has been one of the lead anti-Trump malcontents behind this memo, and not wanting to lose his cushy $1.8 MILLION dollar pension from the FBI, chose to tuck tail and run. Now breaking reports are confirming the nasty thing that McCabe did in his final hours before leaving the FBI, where the vile threats he made towards President Trump that is now putting his already questionable integrity into further light.
FOX News correspondent Catherine Herridge reported on Monday that FBI Director Christopher Wray viewed the explosive FISA memo this weekend, where McCabe is becoming the main theme of the FISA memo and the nasty deal Democrats worked to obtain the FISA order so they could illegally spy on Trump and his family. Apparently knowing he was about to go down in flames, McCabe suddenly announced his departure from the FBI, after being “forced out.” But not before he made a nasty child-like threat that if he missed out on his cushy pension over this scandal, that he would burn down the FBI to the ground.
In the days before FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was forced out of his job, he threatened to “torch” the bureau if he was ousted before his full federal retirement benefits kicked in, according to a new report. According to an insider:
“He was unglued,” one FBI source told True Pundit. “Someone should keep an eye on him.”
But McCabe may also have been reacting, in part, to another growing problem beyond the corruption scandals enveloping McCabe’s leadership at the embattled FBI.
An FBI insider with Intel inside the embattled Bureau who has vigilantly worked to uncover systemic corruption inside the FBI, is rumored to be penning a tell-all book that promises to blow the roof off the inner-workings of the FBI’s controversial 7th-Floor.
Well, that’s mighty cryptic.
McCabe on Monday said he would take an “indefinite” leave of absence, stepping down from his post months earlier than expected.
McCabe is set to receive a nearly $2 million pension, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. But that taxpayer-funded pension doesn’t kick in until March 18, which is why McCabe decided to take “indefinite” leave. That way, he’ll hit the mark.
His decision came just hours before the House voted to reveal a controversial GOP-authored memo about FBI procedure alleging that FBI higher-ups, including McCabe, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and former FBI Director James Comey abused the the FISA warrantless surveillance program.
McCabe has been a frequent target of President Donald Trump on Twitter since being named the FBI’s interim director, (following Comey’s firing) and Republicans have viewed McCabe with suspicion, often questioning why the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information, which took place under McCabe, was so poorly administered.
Meanwhile, an explosive new book claims that McCabe set up a meeting with the White House which was leaked shortly after and was used to the start the “obstructive” narrative in the media and quite possibly in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
McCabe requested to meet privately with then-White House chief of staff Reince Priebus in February 2017 so that he could tell Priebus that everything in a New York Times article titled, “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence,” was “bulls***.” The Federalist reports:
McCabe claimed to want Priebus to know the FBI’s perspective that this story was not true. Priebus pointed to the televisions that were going non-stop on the story. He asked if the FBI could say publicly what he had just told him. McCabe said he’d have to check, according to the book.
McCabe reportedly called back and said he couldn’t do anything about it. Then-FBI director James Comey reportedly called later and also said he couldn’t do anything, but did offer to brief the Senate Intelligence Committee on the matter later that week, suggesting they’d spill the beans publicly.
It appears as though President Trump is serious about draining the swamp. What’s equally incredible is that the man who replaced McCabe as the acting FBI deputy is just as crooked. David Bowdich not only worked under swamp rat Comey, but was instrumental in helping cover for Hillary. Even worse, Bowdich was involved in the Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting conversations with Comey as they scrambled to hide the scandalous meeting from the public.
Newsweek has learned that an FBI official who served as associate deputy director under James Comey and Andrew McCabe is replacing McCabe as acting deputy director. An FBI spokesperson was not immediately available to comment. The news was also reported by CNN, NPR and Fox News.
As associate deputy director, David Bowdich was the third-ranking FBI official, according to the bureau’s organization chart, and would now become No. 2.
But Republican lawmakers and conservative commentators who have called for a “purge” of the bureau’s Comey-era officials might be disappointed, given his former proximity to Comey and McCabe. In testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last June, Comey said he had spoken to senior colleagues including Bowdich about President Donald Trump’s allegedly asking Comey to have the FBI back off its probe into Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser.
Because of that apparent conversation, and because he was the No. 3 official under Comey, Bowdich is a potential witness into whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey. Last June, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, requested that the committee interview Bowdich and other FBI officials as the panel investigated Comey’s termination.
Unfreaking real. Let’s hope that Trump keeps his promise and drains the swamp! The level of corruption is getting absolutely insane!
