Transcripts of testimony that were recently released are causing all kinds of havoc in the D.C. swamp. One set of transcripts shows fired and disgraced former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe testified that he was the one who “made the decision” to fire the disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok from the Mueller team, and not Robert Mueller himself.
“Former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe claimed he ‘made the decision’ to remove Peter Strzok from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team in the summer of 2017 after a series of anti-Trump text messages surfaced between the former FBI special agent and another official with whom he was romantically involved,” Fox News reports.
“It was long thought that Mueller had Strzok removed after the texts between him and Lisa Page were uncovered. But McCabe’s apparent role was revealed in a newly released transcript from his House Judiciary Committee interview on Dec. 21, 2017,” the article added.
Then why didn’t Mueller say this himself publicly? He had to have known it was big news at the time when the story broke that Strzok had been removed from the team over the content of newly discovered text messages between Strzok and his lover (who was not his wife) former FBI attorney Lisa Page. Why did Mueller allow the falsehood to go on for so long? Was it because it made him look good in the eyes of the public? When you are perpetrating a fraud, such as was the whole Trump-Russia collusion investigation, you’ll take anything that makes you look good.
“They said they had a very important matter for me to review and they needed me to come across the street and talk to them that day, which was unusual,” McCabe told lawmakers in July 2017. “I made the decision to remove him from the investigation that evening.”
McCabe lied back in March when he claimed that the phony Steele dossier was “accurately represented” when it was used to apply for a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.
“I do believe that we adequately notified the FISA Court of the information we were using, and what we thought of the information,” McCabe said over the weekend.
“I think everyone was satisfied that we had represented that accurately and adequately in the package,” he added. “I do think we represented it adequately”
Yeah, and I’m Mary, Queen of Scots.
McCabe was fired from the FBI in March last year, only days before he was scheduled to retire. He has claimed that he was fired because of the Trump administration’s ongoing war with the FBI. In reality, McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, after his firing was recommended by both the Department of Justice’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the FBI’s own Office of Professional Responsibility, because he leaked to the Washington Post, and he lied to Congress under oath when he denied that he leaked to the Washington Post. When you join the FBI, the first thing they teach you at the academy is if you are caught lying, you’re done. The FBI takes their agents lying very seriously, as it should, because agents must be able to be trusted with the powers they are given to do their job. McCabe and Strzok fell far short of that trust.
