McCabe’s Recent Statements Contradict McCabe’s Prior Testimony…

When a liar lies they often have trouble keeping their statements consistent.  Former FBI Director Andrew McCabe gave an interview to CBS and wrote an op-ed, a book excerpt, in the Atlantic with outlining a specific sequence of events, dates and statements surrounding the days immediately after James Comey was fired.  However, a review of the timeline and the statements he delivered to CBS is contradicted by his prior congressional testimony.

In his published book excerpt (The Atlantic) McCabe outlines a series of contacts and meetings with President Trump on May 9th, 2017, the day Comey was fired, and then again on May 10th, 2017, the following day.

McCabe (Via The Atlantic) On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, my first full day on the job as acting director of the FBI, I sat down with senior staff involved in the Russia case—the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. As the meeting began, my secretary relayed a message that the White House was calling. The president himself was on the line.

[…] As requested, I went back to the White House that afternoon. The scene was almost identical to the one I had walked into the previous night. (more)

Note “the previous night” would have been Tuesday May 9, 2017, the day Comey was fired.  So McCabe met with POTUS the evening of the 9th, and the afternoon of the 10th.

Now listen and watch McCabe discuss with Scott Pelley the date he decided to open the criminal investigation of President Trump under the auspices of obstruction of justice.

The key part begins at 01:00 as McCabe is describing the first meeting with the president in the Oval Office, May 9th, just hours after Comey was fired:

.

McCabe: I was speaking to the man who had just run for the presidency, and won the election for the presidency, and who might have done so with the aid of the government of Russia, our most formidable adversary on the world stage; and that was something that troubled me greatly.

Pelley: How long after that was it you decided to start the obstruction of justice and counterintelligence investigations involving the President?

McCabe: The next day I met with the teams investigating the Russia cases; and I asked the team to go back and conduct an assessment to determine: where are we with these efforts, and what steps do we need to take going forward? I was very concerned that I was able to put the Russia case on absolutely solid ground, in an indelible fashion, that were I removed quickly, or reassigned, or fired, that the case could not be closed or vanish in the night without a trace. I wanted to make sure our case was on solid ground and if somebody came in behind me and closed it and tried to walk away from it, they would not be able to do with without creating a record of why they made that decision.

Recap:

•May 9th, 2017, Comey fired.
•May 9th, 2017, (Evening) McCabe meets with POTUS.
•May 10th, 2017, McCabe meets with his team. Opens “obstruction” investigation.
•May 10th, 2017, (Afternoon) McCabe meets again with POTUS.

That’s the sequence as described by McCabe in his 2019 book excerpt and CBS interview to correspond with his justification for opening up a criminal case of obstruction against the sitting President of the United States.

McCabe’s decision to open a criminal “obstruction” investigation on May 10th, 2017, corresponds with the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages (same dates):

(text message link)

However, on May 11th, 2017, the day after those two meetings with President Trump; and the day after McCabe opened a criminal investigation; McCabe was testifying to congress about Russia interference in the election. His story was entirely different in 2017.

With the Comey firing still fresh in the headlines McCabe was asked about whether President Trump was obstructing or interfering:

♦Senator Rubio: Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Mr. McCabe, can you–without going to the specifics of any individual investigation, I think the American people want to know, has the dismissal of Mr. Comey in any way impeded, interrupted, stopped, or negatively impacted any of the work, any investigation, or any ongoing projects at the Federal Bureau of Investigation?

Director McCabe. As you know, Senator, the work of the men and women of the FBI continues despite any changes in circumstance, any decisions. So there has been no effort to impede our investigation to date. Quite simply put, sir, you cannot stop the men and women of the FBI from doing the right thing, protecting the American people and upholding the Constitution.

♦Senator Collins. So has there been any curtailment of the FBI’s activities in this important investigation since Director
Comey was fired?

Director McCabe. Ma’am, we don’t curtail our activities. As you know, are people experiencing questions and are reacting to
the developments this week? Absolutely. Does that get in the way of our ability to pursue this or any other investigation?
No, ma’am. We continue to focus on our mission and get that job done.

♦Senator Heinrich. When did you last meet with the President, Director McCabe?

Director McCabe. I don’t think I’m going to comment on that.

Senator Heinrich. Was it earlier this week?

Director McCabe. I have met with the President this week, but I don’t really want to go into the details of that.

Senator Heinrich. But Russia did not come up?

Director McCabe. That’s correct, it did not.

♦Senator Lankford. Thank you. Let me just run through some quick questions on this. Director McCabe, thanks for being here as well. Let me hit some high points of some of the things that I’ve heard already, just to be able to confirm. You have the resources you need for the Russia investigation, is that correct?

Director McCabe. Sir, we believe it’s adequately resourced.

Senator Lankford. Okay, so there’s not limitations on resources? You have what you need? The–the actions about Jim Comey and his release has not curtailed the investigation from the FBI? It’s still moving forward?

Director McCabe. The investigation will move forward, absolutely.

Senator Lankford. No agents have been removed that are the ongoing career folks that are doing the investigation?

Director McCabe. No, sir.

Senator Lankford. Is it your impression at this point that the FBI is unable to complete the investigation in a fair and
expeditious way because of the removal of Jim Comey?

Director McCabe. It is my opinion and belief that the FBI will continue to pursue this investigation vigorously and completely.

♦Senator Harris. Has–I understand that you’ve said that the White House–that you have not talked with the White House
about the Russia investigation. Is that correct?

Director McCabe. That’s correct.

On May 11th, 2017, two days after Comey was fired; and after back-to-back days meeting with the President; Andrew McCabe is telling congress not only has President Trump not interfered with -or obstructed- the investigation, but there has been zero discussion between himself, the President, and/or the White House about the FBI investigation.

However, McCabe is now saying he opened the criminal “obstruction” investigation the day prior to his testimony. In 2019 he’s selling an entirely different story and contradicting himself from his 2017 congressional testimony.

Perhaps that series of contradictions explains why McCabe is now “qualifying” his claims from yesterday about discussing the 25th amendment with Rod Rosenstein:

Once a wall is built he can mitigate the recent influx throygh deportations, but doung so in mass is probably only something he would undertake in.a.second term.

        To bring justice to the FBI, CIA, DOJ, NSA would require the dismantling of the entire top levels of the bureaucracy which has been in place for generations and which Obama weaponized during his tenure. I think one reason Trump hasn’t dropped the hammer on these criminals is that it would take down the entire Intelligence/Justice system. You might have to go two or three levels down to bring in people who are not poisoned by the system. I personally think it needs to be done to save the country, but we would be vulnerable to foreign mischief during this overhaul. For example, career spook, Brennan, is an admitted Communist sympathizer from his early years. How did he become so embedded in our Intelligence network and who has he brought along with him through the years into the agency who think like him? Multiply that by dozens and dozens of positions and you have people in the CIA for the last 20 years who have mixed emotions about the direction this country should take. Methinks Brennan doth protest too loudly concerning Trump.

Then off to the only committee who will call him and put him under oath, Lindsay Graham’s. Time to get these thugs to spill the beans on each other, then send them all to jail for treason. Time for a grand jury to open it all. It will take the rest of the first Trump administration, and by the time the election rolls around, everyone will know what the Obama administration was doing for dear hillary.

    Yes, I was thinking about exactly that testimony earlier today. Right after Comey was fired, McCabe declared that nothing had changed at the FBI in terms of their ability to follow through on the muh-Russia investigation.

    McCabe’s statements to Scott Pelley, then, that he felt it was necessary to install a Special Counsel to ensure that the “investigation” they were conducting would persist smacks of McCabe declaring that he was concerned that the the entire endeavor was an effort to effect a coup and that, in due time, the career FBI and DOJ employees conspiring to effect the coup would necessarily get removed. It was necessary, then, to install someone who was not now a career employee and immune (because of political optics) from removal.

    I’m glad that SD has identified this testimony. It entirely contradicts McCabe’s statements to Pelley.

      The argument that Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey assumes that the next in line for the director position would stop any investigation of Trump because 1) he is Trump’s lackey which is a presumption of prejudice or 2) no one else in the FBI could take over because Comey kept all knowledge of the proceedings to himself which would preclude the proceedings from going forward, which is a falsehood.

        “we need to OPEN THE CASE WE’VE BEEN WAITING ON while Andy is acting”

        That’s CANNOT be “obstruction” for the firing of Comey she is referring to.
        The only other “obstruction” that could possibly be relevant is FLYNN.

        However
        Both Comey earlier and McCabe later as quoted above testified under oath that “NO INTERFERENCE by Trump had taken place.

        So is Page referring to an “OBSTRUCTION” case at all?

    McCabe’s spokeswoman Melissa Schwartz applies the old Clinton “qualifier” trick”:
    “To clarify, at no time did Mr. McCabe participate in any EXTENDED discussions about use of the 25th Amendment…” Oh, so there WERE discussions about removal of the President using the 25th Amendment, just arguably not the EXTENDED sort. Thanks for “clarifying” that Mel.

      May 10th. I was thinking this was strzok/page plan, not McCabe’s. They texted on the 9th about needing to open the case they been waiting on while Andy is still in charge.

      Those texts are the greatest gift we got. Everyone’s story needs to tie in , besides the important info they revealed.

      Wish I had a giant war room wall (as described Mueller has) where you can overlay timelines, transcripts , news links, bio and the likes.

        Except they don’t.

        What is the “case they’ve been WAITING on” that Page refers to “OPENING” in her text?

        It can’t be “obstruction” either for the firing of Comey(which happened hours before) or Flynn because….

        Comey had already testified and McCabe would later testify that POTUS had not interfered with any investigation.

        And it can’t be Crossfire Hurricane which had opened long before.

        I think Jim Jordan knows where the answer is. (See Whitaker testimony)

    Rotten Rod Rosenstein…this is going to be fabulous!!! McCabe said “If I go down, I’m taking everybody with me”!! I can’t wait to hear your reply!

    Fox News reporter Adam Housley reported on Twitter tonight about the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, stating his sources were telling him that in the past few days McCabe threatened to “take people down with him” if he was fired. Housley also reported that the Inspector General-Office of Professional Responsibility report had uncovered “tons of stuff” on McCabe unrelated to the Trump investigation and that McCabe’s firing was a morale boost to FBI agents.

    Sundance, maybe I am too dense…

    I thought McCabe et al. were claiming that certain conversations with Comey (as presented in his memos) and his subsequent termination qualified as obstruction of Justice and that’s why the investigation was opened. It was not because of his own contacts with the President at the time, regardless of how crude, distasteful, un-Presidential and offensive to McCabe’s Sophisticated Sensibilities they supposedly were. Am I wrong?

    And oh boy, enquiring minds want to know who in the so-called Trump Administration did NOT write the blasted memos because “Trump could not be trusted.” Raise you hands por favor. Anyone?

    That’s what happens when you don’t fire everyone on day one. Especially given the fact (?) Adm. Rogers warned the President-Elect about the FBI eavesdropping.

      I certainly understand the doom and gloom, but I have a little different perspective on these events. Everyday, the corrupt DOJ/fFBI traitor’s crimes see more and more sundance. The rats are turning on each other in the efforts of self preservation. They are making mistakes. Barr was confirmed today. Reality is we don’t know what we are getting. That’s my point…..we don’t know. He might just blow this wide open. PDJT got screwed by the globalists cabal in Congresss and signed a terrible bill. But how many times have we been here before, only to be giddy a week later about all the winning.

      This bill did not catch PDJT by surprise. He will win this war. How do I know this? Because he always does. However, I encourage all fellow treepers to write our Lion a note on whitehouse.gov and encourage him. He needs our encouragement. He needs to know that he will NEVER lose us. Live to fight another day. Look how much winning there has been since Nancy took over. MAGA.

      I believe that is actually the gist of the matter. However, no matter whose delicate sensibilities were offended (Comey’s and subsequently McCabe’s), nothing the President said or did can legally be construed as obstruction of justice. He was merely acting in his capacity as Chief Executive.

    I’ve found the whole McCabe 60 minutes story to be rather amusing. I think he got bit by the fake news on this one. The crux of his whole story on 60 minutes is that Rosenstein was pushing for the 25th but this is not news as he leaked this earlier to the NYTimes and WaPo. So CBS edits and releases a tease that makes it appear McCabe was pushing for the 25th which makes for a much more interesting take (and it works). This gets traction to the point where McCabe is forced to push back.

    I do not think this was intentional on McCabe’s part. I think this was a genuine PR mistake. He seems quite convinced that the Rosenstein talking about the 25th amendment story will do something good for him as he has really pushed it. I’m just confused as to what he thinks it will do for him. Rosenstein is gone shortly. Doubtful he gets fired. Very unlikely he gets called to testify by the Dems in the house. The damage was done the first time and nothing came of it so I really don’t understand what his goal is. The end result of this 60 minutes story is that McCabe took a lot more heat than Rosenstein so I think it was a real dumb move.

    McCabe: I was speaking to the man who had just run for the presidency, and won the election for the presidency, and who might have done so with the aid of the government of Russia, our most formidable adversary on the world stage; and that was something that troubled me greatly.

    I think the above excerpt illustrates McCabe’s pathological lying more than anything else I have seen this week. McCabe cannot even identify PDJT as the President of the United States. He IDs him as “the man who had just run for the presidency. This is how McCabe’s subconscious rationalizes his wrong doings. His mind will not let him be honest with himself.

    If he was telling the truth he would say something like ” I was dealing with this so-in-so who became the President by conspiring with Putin and the Russians”

    Everytime I see these dopes saying what a hero rodentstein is, I just laugh to myself, how blind are you? They needed the mulehead to take down a President, but there was literally zero actual collusion, so he was destined to fail. It was almost like a kamikaze mission. I think the hope was that Trump would resign after the Don Jr. Trump Tower meeting was “leaked”. That story had it all (Jr., Russians, in Trump Tower!), but it also had a million holes that great citizen researchers tore into. This farce is finally almost over.

      Below is from the website About page:
      Why do we need to archive President Trump’s accomplishments?
      MAGAPILL is here to ensure that President Trump’s Legacy is properly documented. It’s been recently reported that 95% of the News Media’s coverage of Trump is Negative, while only 5% is positive. This is the definition of an unfair bias and one of the main reasons why everyday American’s confidence in the “Main Stream” media is at an all time low.

      MAGAPILL was created to capture President Trump’s accomplishments that get blown off the headlines by the biased news coverage. All of Trump’s accomplishments are referenced with the MSM article that reported it (when they were forced to cover it documentation purposes). For some reason, nobody in the Media, Congress or the Republican party seem to want to portray an image of President Trump actually succeeding and that should trouble everyone.

    Another comment to remember from Page Strozk texts

    “Passed on a couple points RR wanted to be sure we knew. Consistent with what he told Andy.”

    With the Pelley interview it is a lot easier to say the context of this text is about the discssion of the 25th admendment : a discussion which is a coup.

    No wiggling out that RR and Andy were discussing things. By this text either Andy and Strozk are wondering if they are both hearing the same thing from RR OR they are wondering is RR really interested in investigating trump and doing what it takes to be sure no one can stop the investigation and joining the coup.

      Of course he could be lying about all of it, but I really have to admit it made me think it could have been a possibilty. If I had been Pence, I would have been jumping up and down in front of every camera screaming what a lie it was!!

      The fact that he and Rosenstein have not, speaks volumes! There was an active coup going on and still is…they’re just trying to go about another way now, by denying PDJT anything legislatively now to bring his numbers down.

    What I make of all this is: plot was to use the 25th?? amendment to remove a duly elected president. It would take at least a majority of cabinet members to agree to it. Also would take the Vice President to agree to it (Mike Pence strongly denies any discussions of this occurring–I am still undecided if that is the truth or not mainly because of Gen Flynn lying to him–did Flynn really lie to Pence-I don’t know). Also it would take Paul Ryan as head of the House to bring it to the floor (I do believe they talked to Paul Ryan and that is why Ryan did not run for re-election-He knew this would come out and PT probably already knew about it before he left). All JMO.
