Think about it Michael Avenatti is that coke-head guy in Die Hard who sits down in front of the head terrorist and says, Hans, bubby I can give im to ya.

Get used to hearing the name Jensen. I really really really hate to quote Andrew Weissmann, but, the former lead prosecutor for American Gestapo Chief, er, special counsel Robert Mueller basically confirmed what I told you here after hearing the news that Andrew McCabe would not be prosecuted for lying to investigators: That doesnt mean that McCabe just gets off scot-free.
As reported by the Washington Examiner, Weissmann told F. Chuck Todd late Friday this:
Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department official who was known as Muellers pit bull during the Russia investigation, said the Justice Department swapped out the loser case of Andrew McCabe, who escaped criminal charges on Friday for allegedly lying to investigators about authorizing media disclosures, for a fresh one targeting top former FBI officials, including McCabe, led by Jeffrey Jensen, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri.
All they did was swapped out a loser case for starting an investigation that is going to be of Comey, McCabe, Pete Strzok, Weissmann told MSNBC host Chuck Todd.
The Washington Post also reported based entirely on anonymous sources, of course that DOJ lawyers mad their decision not to pursue McCabe after a federal judge who would have heard the case told them that he believed the case had been damaged by all of the Presidents commentary on it. Obviously, an Obama appointee.
McCabe, meanwhile, feeling emboldened by Fridays events, has been all over CNN, where he is a paid contributor. In an interview last night with Anderson Cooper, he and the host had this exchange:
Anchor Anderson Cooper said, Aside from being understandably anger about all of what youve been through, has it been in a way surreal? In the past couple of minutes, while youve been on with me, on Fox, theres a banner font calling you a liar. Did you ever expect in any way to be dealing with anything like this?
McCabe said, I spent 21 years in the FBI as the part of an institution that prides itself on fidelity, braver, andy and integrity. And to be removed from that organization and unfairly branded a liar because that was the desired outcome by the president has just been one of the most sickening and demeaning experiences of my life. Its horrendous. And it is unfortunate that having listened to propaganda like Fox News, theres, you know, there are many people in this country that will believe that forever.
Lets remember that McCabe ADMITTED to lying repeatedly to DOJ investigators about his serial leaking classified information to members of the press. Inspector General Michael Horowitz painstakingly detailed four instances of his lying to those investigators in a report issued in April of last year. We know he also lied repeatedly in his 2017 testimony to congress. These are simply facts on the public record today.
Andrew McCabe is a liar, and thats really all there is to it.
But the best part of that exchange is calling Fox News a propaganda outlet while doing an interview on freaking CNN.
That is all.

Enjoy, hopefully for you they have tea at the woman’s prison.
Nothing is EVER EVER EVER going to happen to these conspirators. Nothing to see here. Move along.
Andrew McCabe is a liar, and thats really all there is to it.
So? DC is filled with liars and nothing ever happens to any of them.
McCabe is off the hook because as we all know DC is a Justice Free Zone.
Shoot. Dont talk.
No, not obviously an Obama appointee. For the umpteenth time, someone needs to tell Donald to STFU. He is the nation's chief law enforcement officer, not a jousting partner for Rachel Maddow. Quite a few people should go to prison for their roles in the attempted coup. One of the biggest risks to a successful prosecution is a president with the impulse control of a 13 year old girl who can't stay off Twitter and doesn't understand that he can compromise a serious case. DJT appears to be more interested in having Twitter followers than in allowing investigators to build a case.
And NO, don't complain about "the swamp." DJT is three and a half years into his administration. If he doesn't have solid, reliable people of integrity in the key positions at this point, it's on him. The Twitter addict spends more time feuding with his own appointees on social media than he does actually building a team. He is his own worst enemy.
Did Mrs McCabe ( a failed democrat who got $800K from Hillary to make a fake run for office) approve of Lisas message? I kinda wonder if Lisa goes shopping and out to lunch with the Real Housewives of the DOJ/FBI
The judge told the prosecutors that Trump’s comments damaged the case against McCabe?
But McCabe being guilty and becoming a CNN commentator, that’s no problem.
Oh spare me.
CNN’s cameras were rolling at 04:30 when the FBI SWAT teams swooped in on Mr. and Mrs. Stone at their residence in Florida and rousted them from their bed.
Was the judge concerned about that tainting the defendant’s right to a fair trial?
The best part of being confined to the slime in the Swamp is that you aren't even aware that there is life OUTSIDE the Swamp. It's best to keep that secret.....for now.
Barrs comments make a lot more sense now.
Yea, something that is a crime becomes not a crime because the President tweets about it. So if he says Flynn should be behind bars and DOJ isn’t moving fast enough they will drop the case against him. Did I get that right? Justice, being the same for everyone, MUST make that so. If Trump can kill a case by tweeting then all the cases against his allies should also be dead. You sir, are trying to find a reason no to blame the corrupted system. Sorry, we all see that it is corrupt.
They are simply too incompetent, too undisciplined and too irresponsible to properly execute a successful conspiracy.
How they made to the top of the FBI and CIA is a travesty and a serious indictment of the kind of people we had running this country

So it’s Trump’s fault the GOP Senate has blocked his key picks? Threatened him not to fire SEssions? Author the Mueller Protection Act? Obviously, not.
McConnell agrees with you: POTUS should just “STFU”, lie back and enjoy it while the Deep State rapes his supporters and administration. Why do you think McConnell wants POTUS to “STFU”? To advance the MAGA agenda? Ha ha. Yeah, that’s it. No doubt.
Exactly. Barr is worthless and Durhams “investigation” is just a smokescreen.
Until the "unspeakable" happens. Then they will hang from lamp posts....
