Important – Catherine Herridge Confirms Lisa Page Statements Contradicted Andrew McCabe, Ultimately Leading to His Firing…

Fox News Catherine Herridge reports today, per her FBI investigative sources, it was an investigative interview with FBI Attorney Lisa Page, in July 2017, that contradicted FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and ultimately led to his firing.

That revelation is exactly what we anticipated was the origin to Inspector General Michael Horowitz gaining the text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.  The issue is actually more stunning than presented.  However, first here’s the report from Herridge (emphasis mine):

Fox News – Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired last month for committing three violations of the bureau’s ethics code, an investigative source told Fox News on Thursday.

The violations initially were uncovered by the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General and confirmed by the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility. They included lack of candor under oath, lack of candor when not under oath, and the improper disclosure of non-public information to the media about the FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

The violations stemmed from McCabe’s response to an October 2016 Wall Street Journal report about sizeable campaign donations from Democrats to McCabe’s wife, Jill, during her campaign for the Virginia State Senate. The investigation found that McCabe instructed FBI lawyer Lisa Page and FBI public affairs chief Michael Kortan to work with the Journal’s reporter to set the record straight.

The source said Page’s statements to investigators were “critical” because they directly contradicted her boss, McCabe.

According to the source, McCabe’s lack of candor about the contact with the Journal reporter led to his firing. The source added that Page’s testimony about the matter contradicted McCabe’s. Then-FBI Director James Comey claimed he never authorized the leak to the Journal.  (read more)

A picture was initially clear in March once we had the full timeline of the interviews with Andrew McCabe that led to his firing.  This Fox News report only confirms the obvious; however, it’s important to review the events to fully understand the scope of McCabe’s lying and also understand the reason for Lisa Page to be so angry.

Remember, Lisa Page was a DOJ attorney assigned to the office of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe specifically to provide legal guidance.  Imagine how pissed off she was when she discovered (July 2017) the Deputy FBI Director who told her to leak a story -on his behalf- to the Wall Street Journal, denied ever telling her to leak the story.

It’s no wonder why Ms. Page told FBI Agent Peter Strzok to “never text her again”, and she quit working for the Mueller team several weeks before IG Horowitz informed Mueller about the conspiracy issues (which led to Strzok’s removal).

Here’s the timeline from an assembly of media reporting and investigative releases to congress.

Andrew McCabe was first interviewed about the media leaks in May 2017.  He denied.  “A couple of months later” he was interviewed by Inspector General Horowitz, and he again denied.  On July 20th of 2017 Inspector General Horowitz gained the Peter Strzok and Lisa Page text messages.

•May 2017 McCabe denies leaking for WSJ story to FBI investigators (link).

•July 2017 McCabe denies again; to Inspector General Horowitz.

•July 2017 Lisa Page admits to Horowitz she was told to construct the Wall Street Journal story (Devlin Barrett, journalist).  This conflicts with McCabes repeated denials. (link)

•July 20th 2017 Horowitz gets Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages (link). Proving McCabe constructed the WSJ story.

(Full back-story to text message discovery)

•August 2017: After Horowitz gets the proof McCabe was lying – McCabe follows up on the two denials saying “he may have allowed FBI officials to speak with the newspaper”. (link)

•August 2017:  FBI re-interviews McCabe based on new admissions.

•November 29th 2017: One day before SC Mueller indicts Michael Flynn, IG Horowitz interviews McCabe again.  Apparently this time McCabe admitted to constructing the leak. (link)

In May, June and July 2017, while FBI Deputy Director Andrew “Andy” McCabe was lying to FBI investigators and the Inspector General, Lisa Page was working for McCabe as his legal counsel.

Therein lies the heart and origin of the motive for Lisa Page to flip against the conspiracy group when she discovered Andrew McCabe lying to investigators about his instructions to her.  IG Horowitz then interviews Page in July and she tells the truth, thereby contradicting McCabe.

However, Ms. Page had the evidence – The Text Messages delivered July 20th.

    Yeah I was talking about this back in January.. Lisa obviouspy flipped- look at outbox inbox labels, she probably was given a script to run on her computer before the inevitable but unreported evidence grab that must have occurred once the FBI was discovered working with Awan bros… She may have hesitantly reported the strange communications from Strzok and McCabe to the NSA thinking they were trying to stingray her… Possibly related to the period in Summer 2017 when Comey’s house and office were ransacked?

            Mountaineer; TDC Luke Rosiak reported after George Webb connected the first dots, GW kept tossing his findings to any reporters who would listen until Luke caught on that GW had verifiable investigative reporting. George has always been of the view that any of his investigative reporting is up for grabs for anyone to report on and didn’t care who got the credit. He may feel that way, but many of his followers don’t share that view and feel that he’s always getting shafted by reporters like Luke who never attributed any credit to GW. GW has handed Luke many good breaks on a silver platter, the most ugly part is Luke acts like he’s the sole contributor of the Awan story being busted wide open. GW has a Tralo board of timelines (don’t know if its still up or its status) and compare it with when Luke did his first report on Awans. Father God, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, be with all those who pound the pavements each and everyday to expose the truth so that justice may be served!

      McCabe and Comey were setting others up to take the fall.

      Comey was fingering Priestap saying it was Priestap who advised him not to tell Congress about spying on Trump and McCabe was setting up Page and Kortan by denying he told them to leak.

      Page and Strzok are in up to their ears in alligators because of the text messages, and the best they can do is cooperate with investigators. Sundance believes Priestap is cooperating, too (as well he should to save himself if he can).

      In these guys’ defense, everyone knows what happens to those who cross the Clintons and at the time Page and Strzok were colluding against Trump, they (along with everyone else) were convinced Hillary was the next president. They were simply betting on a sure thing, a sure thing that if they didn’t bet on it would take revenge.

      In short, they were between a rock and a hard place as happens to anyone who pose a danger to the Clintons. I suspect getting crosswise with Al Capone might have been safer. At least there is a “witness protection program”.

        • I was thinking the same thing. Only problem is that these people, in their unbridled arrogance, have no shame or sense of decency. Don’t forget that Page, Strzok, et al are part of the true “One Percent”, the Big Government Aristocracy that rules our country behind the scenes.

          Do you think for one minute that they didn’t know that their texts and communications were being recorded? Hell, they are part of the very Machine that is in charge of doing such things to everyone else, including the POTUS.

          My guess is that because they have always been above the Law, they figured that
          (a) the rules didn’t apply to them and that they could get away with anything and

          (b) they felt that whatever happened, they could handle it among themselves..

          I’m not convinced there actually was an affair. There’s a few texts that indicate there probably was (such as Strzok trying to get Page to go on the trip to London), but it’s also possible that the affair angle was invented to justify the holding back of large swaths of communications. Kind of like Hillary’s 33,000 emails about Chelsea’s wedding and yoga schedules.

            Imagine a straight-arrow co-worker/FBI guy noticing that Strzok is in heavy communications with Page. Now, Strzok can’t let this guy in on the real story. So Strzok plays the part, sheepishly tells the straight arrow, “Gee whiz, we are having an affair, don’t tell anybody, OK?” Translated: “we are just doing the ordinary suburbia sinning, no treason or anything like that.”
            Now, maybe they WERE having an affair. But Strzok’s wife got a big SEC job, probably as a thank-you for his efforts in the conspiracy. The same guy was screwing Page? Yeah?
            And where are the cameras in the face of Mrs. Strzok and Mr. Page. They can dumpster-dive into Sarah Palin ‘way up in Alaska, but they can’t find two newsmakers in D.C.?

      Leaking/talking to the press is apparently allowed if the FBI Director orders or approves it. This probably has a legitimate role in presenting the FBI info as “background’s, or as a tactic in criminal cases. That’s why McCabe tried to say that Comey knew about this leak. Lisa Page could claim (perhaps even truthfully) that McCabe gave her to believe that her “media outreach” was officially approved. She should have been able to distinguish between a legit FBI interest, and spinning about McCabe’s personal conflict of interest. Strzok wasn’t the only one with an “insurance policy” — Page’s texts came in handy for burning Andy.

        Yes, maybe…

        Hangtown Bob has the breaking point identified, just as Sundance did in his article above.

        Page did not have a problem being privy to, and possibly participating in seditious discussion to take down a President. Not to overlook Page’s willingness to be an accessory to criminal corruption hiding/overlooking HRC’s illegalities and Page’s promoting someone Page knows, at least minimally, to be criminally negligent and quite corrupt for President.

        Nor is it apparent that Page had any difficulty obeying McCabe’s leak info suggestion.

        It’s when Lisa Page recognized the get ‘run over by the buses’ setup, McCabe was positioning her for; that Page woke up to the rose thorns and rocky garden path.

        Best yet, Page becoming a Federal witness will moderate any possible charges of treason. So long as Lisa Page squeaks every morsel of information when she is told to squeak and provides every bit of documentation she might have.

        The arrangement given to Lisa Page may not be full immunity, but it is sure to be a hell of a lot better than getting thrown under a bus, blamed and prosecuted for the entire seditious mess.
        Instead, Lisa proved that she is just an underling to the main conspirators. A high level underling, yes; but still one that follows orders, given by others.

        There are likely text messages where Strzok and Page discussed turning state’s evidence. We may never get to see them.

        Sundance has suggested before that Priestap likely turned state’s evidence when Comey started setting Priestap up for bus tire tracks.
        The exciting news is there are likely other links in a widespread personnel chart that are/will turn state evidence as soon as pressure is applied. DNC, CIA, FBI, State Dept, DOJ…

          McCabe’s wife was not a politician. Terry MacAuliffe recruited her to run for a State Senate seat the Dems had little chance of winning. Strategically, TM would not want the Republican candidate to run unopposed; Dem politicians didn’t want to run a losing race, and TM wanted them elsewhere. McCabe’s wife probably was flattered into doing this “service for the Party” so long as it was a free shot for her. From what I have seen, the $700,000 was raised by MacAuliffe, with about $400,000 coming from a fundraising event featuring Hillary. The money was spent on a campaign consultant and media buys. I think the idea that this was a way to give the McCabes money is off the track. It tied McCabe’s fate to Hillary winning the Presidency.

          The bigger issue is that TM didn’t pick the McCabes at random. He had to know that the wife and Andrew McCabe were stalwart Democrats, he would never have recruited her. So how did MacCauliffe know them? Suggestion from Bill and Hillary? Past donations? Participation in Virginia State Democrat Party apparatus?

      A thread from McIntyre likely isn’t going to impact this outcome as much as we may hope. The more rational, impeccably researched and clear cut the evidence, the greater level of denial, supported by the ignorant masses of lyin’ jackals known as our media.

      What dots can McIntyre connect, what can he surmise that sundance hasn’t already?

      A member of a large family I know shared discussions held as they gathered on Easter Sunday. The adolescents talked abt the political aftermath of the Parkland shooting and that was intensely debated. The family talked omnibus spending, tariff’s, preserving the Bill of Rights–or not. They talked about politicians and entertainment icons that would make America better if they shut up, and the indisputable fact that Americans are not in the least interested in the President’s personal life or claims thereof.

      The ongoing drip, drip of info and ‘breaking news’ of Russia/Uranium One/Clinton emails/Strzok-Page-McCabe-Comey, et al, was dissected and debated. This family, who might well be good representations of the Average American, and most certainly are Forgotten Men and Women with natural born offspring that are #DreamersToo, said they’re reaching saturation point.

      One of the well seasoned members of this Forgotten Family has decided the country would have been better off if news of all the investigation and discovery had been kept quiet and under the radar, saving it for a big reveal. Kinda like Sessions’ apparent method. He suggests everybody doing the investigating and those reporting and informing on it should have waited and then, similar to Judgment Day, it would have all broken loose at once. So much would have come out so fast, the media and seditionists wouldn’t have had time to counter it and lie their way out. All the reported indictments would be delivered, all the breaking news would have broken at once. The culmination of events would get dropped like a bomb. And maybe then, Americans would have sat up and paid more attention.

      Our attention spans are short and must be fed daily with the next sensation. The reporting on this does appear to take a page from the Watergate/Lewinsky era’s.

      People don’t consume news the same way anymore. Few allow time to be spoon-fed little morsels of news at a time. Today’s media now creates crises and breaking news in order to hold attention on what they want us to believe and divert attention away from truth. Impatience and quick boredom comes out as throwing spitwads at those that report. Examples: Comments here recently that Lou Dobbs is a drunk, Tom Fitton wears his shirts too tight, Sara Carter gets it wrong, Rush is a blowhard Never Trumper and Hannity should shut up. We are ‘show me the money’ news consumers. These voices can’t just keep repeating the same lines without results or risk getting lambasted.

      Would a bombshell news event, complete with live coverage of perp’s being cuffed and stuffed into black Yukon’s been more effective to grab and hold the nation’s attention? Would the shock of seeing top level govt officials being marched out of the DOJ, FBI, State Dept., and Congressional offices, with reams of documents of proof being released online at break neck speed captured our attention more? A consensus of one family living in the heartland, with political opiners ranging in age from very young to very old, seems to think so.

      The other conclusion this family reached on the unseasonably cold Easter Day was that all Trump supporters better turn 100% political focus on holding the House of Representatives and putting major pressure on McConnell to get Trump appointees approved. And fast.

      That’s an astute observation and opinion none of us should argue about. If Dems take the House, the exhaustive work presented here will be useless. All investigations stop–those that continue will be ignored, documents will be shredded, cases closed, history rewritten and the guilty never pay in this lifetime.

      If we want justice served and law and order to prevail, if we truly want to save America, we better start paying alot more attention to November than we are to shirt sizes.

        Which is PRECISELY how “we” know we are over the “target”. Rep. Devin Nunes stated that the closer he got to the truth, the more frequent and virulent the personal attacks on him started coming. That is when he knew personally that he was on the right track.

      Wikipedia says in its article “Empire State Building” that the ones who built the Empire State Building (1930-1931) “had also” built Trump Tower (1979.)

      Amazing longevity, huh? Lol.

      “The contractors were Starrett Brothers and Eken, Paul and William A. Starrett and Andrew J. Eken,[72] who had also constructed other New York City buildings such as the original Stuyvesant Town, Starrett City and Trump Tower.[73] ”

      Note the tense of the statement “who had also constructed.” The tense of this statement would mean that Trump Tower was built BEFORE the Empire State Building! 🤣

Sometime way too much information, almost like a roadmap. Plus to me, I NEVER saw a hint of any “affair” in their texts. That would be impossible to hide.

And they also used FBI internal apps to communicate as well as burner phones. It seemed to me that they were pretty cognizant of their communication content and intentionally broke up their communication threads with very little overlap. And of course I also believe we aren’t seeing all of the messages in total.

            Separately, text messages between Page and since-demoted FBI official Peter Strzok indicated that Strzok traveled to London in early August to interview a key witness in the FBI’s Russia investigation just days after the probe was opened. The messages showed the officials were debating what they would share with their Justice Department superiors when Strzok returned to Washington. “I think we need to consider the lines of what we disclose to DOJ,” Strzok texted Page early on the morning of Aug. 3, 2016. “For example, the last stipulation notes we will not disclose.”

    Has anyone seen proof that they were having an affair. I heard that “the affair” was a roost to explain why they were texting so much to scheme things.

      This has been asked many times. Congress was informed of the affair. And the texts have all been redacted, purely personal texts were not provided to Horowitz, and texts with personal details had those details removed. Someone last night caught a fairly sexual pair of texts between them, there might be more.

        Also keep in mind we are only seeing some of the texts on their FBI phones. They had personal phones as well, I believe.

          By claiming they had an affair when they were not would be even more of a cover up of the planned scheme. I think it would add even more credibility about their motives. One more brick in the lying wall.

          I am still struggling with the motives why McCabe needed to clear the air with the leaked WSJ article. Was it to distance him from his wife activities? The relationship of his wife would have likely been a conflict of interest even at a county government level. The WSJ article did not really clear that. Was it to justify that the matter was over, so it was no longer a conflict of interest with the Clinton email scandal? Why even give attention to it? His leak declared what was already known which seem to put more focus on him.

          If this is the best that McCabe and company can do to frame the President with “Russian Collusion” they have done a bad job at it.

          Know wonder why we are getting our butts kicks on intel. We have a bunch of hacks at the FBI, NSA and DOJ. In some ways Snowden was right about the idiots we have in intel. Not a fan of Snowden’s, but he does help set the frame work for all that is wrong with the “Russian Collusion” Scheme.

            McCabe was taking a lot of heat, even from others in the Bureau, over his decision not to recuse himself from the Clinton investigation. He was trying to create the impression that he was able to be fair and impartial because ‘see, I was hard on Hillary!’

    RE: the top photo of McCabe, Page and Baker (with facial expressions like they’re in a perp walk), I apologize if these folks have already been identified, but I’m wondering who are the man in the purple tie in front of Baker (who also looks shellshocked) and the man in the green tie to McCabe’s right (who looks like an angry dad). Anybody ID these dudes?

      Not sure who the people are but the photo is from May 11 when McCabe attended a Congressional hearing. There’s more info on the first page of the comments.

    Last night while this news about Page ratting out McCabe was fresh I was thinking maybe something had happened to turn her against him. I looked through all of the May and June 2017 Strzok/Page texts here: https://www.scribd.com/document/371002694/Senator-Ron-Johnson-Appendix-C-Documents-and-Text-Messages As late as 06-04 she was writing positive comments about McCabe and her relationship with him and how hard she worked for him. At that time she and Strzok were both stressing out trying to figure out whether or not they wanted to be on Mueller’s team. Most of the time Page didn’t want to be on it, primarily because there were going to be some hot shot attorneys on it and she felt like she wouldn’t have much good work to do, if I intepret her statements correctly.

    And then on 06-15 Strzok says “Case is open”. Page replies “Oh Jesus. By whom?” Strzok texts something that is redacted, probably the name or title of the person. Then they have a conversation about leaks. Strzok says people in a NY office were fired for leaking.

    By 06-20 Page is clearly testy. Then suddenly on 06-25 she issues the “Please don’t text me ever again” message.

    There’s nothing indicating that Page had any animosity toward McCabe so I think her McCabe takedown must have been purely for self-preservation. I do think if she were convicted of a federal crime it would have a great impact on her career. What do you think the ‘case was, opened on 06-15? OIG beginning to review communications? And that’s how he ended up finding out about the Strzok/Page affair and texts?

        New Yorker had this:

        http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2016/11/fbi-sources-leak-details-of-clinton-probe-to-the-press.html

        Now sources tell The Wall Street Journal that some FBI agents felt they’d advanced the case well past the allegations made in the book. They had collected information on the Clinton Foundation from at least two informants in other public-corruption cases, and they had a secret recording of one of those conversations. The sources say that in the recording a suspect in another corruption case discusses improper deals made by the Clintons.
        …….

        While a number of FBI agents and Justice Department officials appear to be airing their grievances about how the Clinton and Trump investigations were handled, a few are going even further by sharing their predictions about the outcomes. Fox News’s Bret Baier said Wednesday that two FBI sources said the Clinton Foundation probe is likely to lead to an indictment. One of the sources said the bureau has collected “a lot of” evidence, and “there is an avalanche of new information coming every day.”

    It’s reported that Hannigan passed information to Brennan in the summer of 2016. Went looking for a specific date of the meeting but haven’t found it, (to compare to the date of Strozk’s trip).
    However, Accuracy In Media has several interesting reports on GCHQ’s involvement. Here are several links worth checking out:
    http://mobile.wnd.com/2017/04/analysis-confirms-british-role-in-trump-being-spied-on/

    https://www.aim.org/special-report/watergate-style-wiretapping-confirmed/
    …”As we have pointed out at AIM, it has been long-standing procedure pursuant to “UKUSA” intelligence agreements that British GCHQ staff physically stationed at NSA headquarters in Maryland use NSA computer terminals and other equipment to spy on U.S. citizens designated by the NSA—or now, it appears, designated through the direct intervention of high-level Obama officials, thus bypassing the NSA itself.”…

    https://www.aim.org/special-report/british-role-confirmed-in-trump-spying-scandal/
    …”Previous reporting has said that an interagency task force of six U.S. intelligence agencies was set up to investigate the alleged Trump-connected names supposedly discovered in “incidental collection” of digital wiretap surveillance of Russian communications. The six agencies are said to consist of the CIA, NSA, FBI, the Justice Department’s National Security Division, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Treasury Department financial crimes unit. Until now, no one has known who in the Obama administration set up the task force, who directs it, what its operating directives state, what its activities have entailed, and who it is really accountable to.
    But the Guardian is now reporting that it was CIA Director John Brennan who initiated, in about August 2016, what clearly seems to be an illegal domestic investigation of the Trump political campaign, which would be prohibited by the CIA charter.”…

    And Judge Napolitano was all over this.
    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/03/16/andrew-napolitano-did-obama-spy-on-trump.html

    “The NSA has given GCHQ full 24/7 access to its computers, so GCHQ — a foreign intelligence agency that, like the NSA, operates outside our constitutional norms — has the digital versions of all electronic communications made in America in 2016, including Trump’s.”

    Here’s a Tablet article with interesting comments by Brennan and a timeline of his actions in 2016:
    http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/255020/how-cia-director-john-brennan-targeted-james-comey

    “But the F.B.I. has a very close relationship with its British counterparts. And so the F.B.I. had visibility into a number of things that were going on involving some individuals who may have had some affiliation with the Trump campaign.”

    Brennan continued: “I wanted to make sure that every information and bit of intelligence that we had was shared with the bureau [FBI] so that they could take it. It was well beyond my mandate as director of CIA to follow on any of those leads that involved U.S. persons. But I made sure that anything that was involving U.S. persons, including anything involving the individuals involved in the Trump campaign, was shared with the bureau.”

      More from AIM on US/UK intelligence reciprocity agreements:
      https://www.aim.org/special-report/a-watergate-style-threat-to-the-democratic-process/

      …”The strange involvement of an “ex” British MI6 agent, Christopher Steele, in conducting “opposition research” during a U.S. election has raised no questions in the left-wing media. It bears consideration, as it could represent in reality a British “reciprocity” covert operation on behalf of Obama’s CIA, one to fabricate discrediting disinformation about Trump, not a mere intelligence-gathering or wiretapping operation.

      The exact means and exact agency by which this wiretapping, or much of it, has been done had been left unclear until now, when the claimed British connection surfaced. These types of British surveillance wiretaps are known as operations under “UKUSA” and “BRUSA” intelligence “reciprocity” agreements, which are the functional equivalent of formal treaties in the spy world.

      Such “reciprocity” operations are designed to evade the laws of each country, the U.S. and the UK, by having the British spy on Americans who the Americans want spied on, and having the Americans spy on the British who the Brits want spied on. Each side then exchanges the wiretap and other data the other side wants, thus without directly incriminating themselves. UKUSA reciprocity treaty “requests” have the force of direct orders to the other country’s intelligence agencies.

      The wiretap data is exchanged under bogus traditional claims of the “extreme sensitivity” of “foreign liaison” intelligence, in order to obstruct outside oversight and thus in reality conceal surveillance of questionable legality. The UKUSA arrangements go beyond mere data searches and exchanges, by having, for example, British agents use NSA equipment and facilities on a rental lease basis to spy on the Americans that U.S. agencies want surveilled (and vice versa) so that the best equipment in the best position of access is used.

      Former Justice Department Nazi-hunter John Loftus has documented how this British-U.S. “wiretap shell game” works, and pointed out how it is used to spy on political candidates in elections, and is covered up from Congress. Loftus reported:

      “Over the years the British back-channel inside the NSA was used for a variety of political dirty tricks. A large number of American candidates for public office have been placed under electronic surveillance by British intelligence officers sitting at their ‘temporary listening post’ at [NSA] Fort Meade.” [Loftus, Secret War Against the Jews, 1997, p. 195]”…
