  • FBI: McCabe was investigated for media leak in 2017

    10/15/2018 2:59:47 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 1 replies
    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was under investigation by the bureau in March 2017 for an alleged unauthorized leak to the media about former national security adviser Michael Flynn and President Trump. The alleged leak, which has not been publicly revealed, involved a “statement overheard in early February 2017,” according to documents released by the FBI on Monday. The FBI’s Office of Public Affairs received the complaint about the alleged leak, and an investigation appears to have been opened on March 20, 2017.

    The identity of one of the key SpyGate leakers inside the Department of Justice appears to have been revealed this Monday morning (15 Oct 18), thanks to a surprise document dump. The Department of Justice, without any advance announcement that it would do so, suddenly released... 341 pages from the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility’s report on Andrew McCabe. If you’ll recall, this is the report that resulted in McCabe, then the FBI’s #2 official, being summarily fired by Jeff Sessions back in March of this year.

Flynn and the POTUS,” one document states. The investigation into the unauthorized media disclosure appears to have started on March 20,...

    There was a Senate Homeland Security, Government Affairs Committee hearing today where one of the responding executive branch officials was FBI Director Wray.  Toward the end of the hearing, long after the rest of the members had left the hearing, Chairman Johnson took the opportunity to ask Director Wray some very specific and pointed questions about the current issues within the FBI as an institutional office.Few people remember, fewer even know, that was Ron Johnson’s committee effort that brought out the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages.  Lots of other committees began exploring DOJ and FBI misconduct, but it...

    Former FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe reportedly talked with the agency's top lawyer after deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein suggested that administration officials wiretap President Trump. The Washington Post, citing people familiar with the episode, reported on Tuesday that in 2017 McCabe told the lawyer, James Baker, that Rosenstein had discussed secretly taping the president to see if Trump had obstructed justice. McCabe then asked Baker how the FBI should address the deputy attorney general's suggestion. Baker reportedly dismissed the idea. Baker, however, told congressional investigators this week that Rosenstein's dramatic suggestion had been presented to him as being serious,...

    There are two warring camps: Team Rosenstein and Team McCabe. Team Rosenstein consists of current officials: Jeff Sessions, Dana Boente et al; and Team McCabe has former officials: Lisa Page, James Baker, Mike Kortan et al. Each camp has a media outlet to push their narrative. Team Rosenstein has The Washington Post; Team McCabe is using The New York Times. Sources for NYT reporting are from team McCabe; Sources for WaPo reporting are from Team Rosenstein. Understand this, and the reporting narrative context makes more sense. Both Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein took corrupt and illegal action to try and...

    Unraveling: Following reports Monday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is scheduled to meet with POTUS Donald Trump on Thursday, likely tied to allegations he schemed to oust the commander-in-chief, fired Deep State liar and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe appeared to hit the panic button. And why? Over the bogus probe regarding special counsel Robert Mueller. In a statement, McCabe — who was fired earlier this year by Attorney General Jeff Sessions for lying on multiple occasions to investigators — expressed concern that Mueller’s probe could go away (as it should) if caretaker Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, is...

    Attorney Michael Bromwich, the face of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's legal team, is representing Christine Blasey Ford for free, according to his assistant and spokeswoman. Bromwich joined Ford’s legal team over the weekend, as she prepares to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulting her in high school. Bromwich, a former Justice Department inspector general, joined two other attorneys on Ford's team — Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, who both work at Marshall & Banks. Bromwich added firepower, but also potential cost to the Kavanaugh accuser’s legal representation.

    TERROR REPORT SLAMS CIA The CIA failed to pass on warnings to the FBI about two of the terrorists who went on to become September 11 hijackers, it has been claimed. An FBI agent who was working with the CIA more than a year before the attacks on New York and Washington said he wanted to warn FBI bosses about al Qaeda suspects Khalid Al-Midhar and Nawaq Alhamzi. They had been spotted at a gathering of terror suspects in Malaysia and were understood to be headed to America, it was reported. US officials told ABC News the agent was denied...

    Republicans on Sunday seized on reports that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year proposed secretly recording President Trump, in order to renew calls for a special counsel investigation of alleged bias within the Department of Justice (DOJ). “[Trump] shouldn’t fire Rosenstein unless you believe Rosenstein’s lying. He said he did not do the things alleged, but there’s a bureaucratic coup against President Trump being discovered here,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on “Fox News Sunday.” “Before the election, the people in question tried to taint the election, tip it in [Hillary] Clinton’s favor; after the election they’re trying to...

    Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has agreed to testify before the Senate next week, her lawyer said Saturday. The exact terms and timing of her testimony remain unclear, as negotiations between Ford's lawyers and staff for the Senate Judiciary Committee remain ongoing. Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) had given Ford's lawyers until Saturday afternoon to decide on whether she would proceed with testifying. An email from Ford's lawyers sent to the Judiciary Committee shortly before a 2:30 p.m. deadline said Ford had accepted the panel's "request to provide...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s actions, as recounted by the New York Times Friday, are the equivalent of an attempted coup -- a plot to overthrow the president. As the Times reveals, Rosenstein was furious that Democrats blamed him for the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Rosenstein, who had volunteered to write the firing memorandum, was “regretful and emotional.” His behavior was described as “erratic.” He blamed Trump. So, in an apparent act of vengeance, he proposed secretly recording the president to try to gain damaging information about him. He solicited others to wear wires, including Andrew McCabe, who...

    Wallace said he views the statement from Rosenstein as "very weak," and written in a "lawyerly" fashion. "I think it's very careful," said Wallace, adding that Rosenstein only asserted there is "no basis" currently for the 25th Amendment to be considered. He said Rosenstein did not specifically say anything about whether he discussed wearing a "wire" or brought up the 25th Amendment. Wallace said the story will raise questions about Rosenstein's frame of mind right around the time he appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Jon Scott noted that, according to...

Rosenstein blasted back with an outright, unqualified denial of both...
