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:

      That’s a good read, thanks spoogels.

      It will truly be fascinating to watch how the Trump-hating media back-peddle from the Russia hoax they’ve perpetrated for 2 years. And, more importantly, at what time will the dam break and the truth of Spygate, Crossfire Hurricane etc seep into the general public’s awareness?

      As a Treeper writes below, thanks to a complicit MSM, there’s still a disconcertingly high proportion of people who still think it’s all just a right wing conspiracy theory!

      THIS is why we need to see arrest, trial & jail up to the highest levels, including Obama & Hillary. It’s the only way to break through the MSM’s Operation Mockingbird programming of the general public.

Even though they now have a former FBI Deputy Director confirming accusations made long ago by Trump, which the media mocked as delusional, they have shifted into the mode of “the seriousness of the allegations prove they are true!” And they themselves say that this information contradicts previous FBI testimony!

        And not one mention of the fact that the entire Russia fantasy is based on a fabrication paid for by Hillary! Or that the FBI sneaked information into a pile of briefing papers unknown to the President, and then leaked it to the media!

        This is a classic case of delusion so powerful that LITERALLY NO EVIDENCE IS STRONG ENOUGH TO CONTRADICT IT!

        This is the American media, saying they are protecting you from lies, while living in a huge lie themselves!

        Yes. It’s the only way. It has not always been a popular opinion around these parts, but “the story getting out” or “sunlight” is NOT enough—without arrests and perp walks and convictions and real consequences, none of this will even be acknowledged or widely known.

        And why should it? The public sees Trump’s associates going to jail and his family members under legal harassment, while the rogue forces against him and the eminently criminal Obama and Hillary circles get immunity and remain untouched. Of COURSE they draw the obvious conclusions, and will continue to do so until arrests of the OTHER side happen, and high level folks, not bit players.

      McCabe here peddles more lies although being indicted he continues with his lies.

      What these coup plotters actually also meant when claiming the 25th amendment is to assassinate the president.

      For the first time it was openly stated and shown in pics that they attempted to take down AF1 and with it the president and his team as they were on their way to Singapore meeting with the NK leader.
      A missile was flying towards AF1 that was intercepted by our military.
      This missiles was fired from within and out of California!!! This info was posted by one of our military member that works and guards the president.

      Now you also understand why it is so important to close the border. When we have threats like that from within and out of California firing off missiles to take down AF1.

          This may be an ignorant observation, but isn’t keeping an investigation open, without cause, tantamount to “cruel and unusual punishment” or “harassment.” Our justice system has proven itself to be evil, in my estimation! Unequal justice; using taxpayer money for endless investigations that bleed citizens of resources; presumption of guilt; requiring people to prove innocence rather than the government proving guilt.

      Technically, it doesn’t matter. What helps Mueller are these True Bills he is getting on non-Collusion crimes. That is productivity to those people. There are convictions on the record, no matter how puny (14 days for Georgie Porgy Papadopoulos (there is an amusing parody commercial in Australia I saw on Twitter yesterday about East Timor tourism. Alexander Downey was sent up in the parody for hosing East Timor of natural gas and oil) and his 14 days in stir. Manafort is, for all purposes, being tortured in solitary in a max security institution, probably to get him to flip, so he most likely has nothing to tell. He can probably hang Stone with one charge or other. Corsi is probably composing and the crosshairs are trying to acquire Alex Jones. Other than that, there is nothing, but as long as there is a semblance of progress, Barr could keep it going.

      What would stop it is an investigation of what Hillary was doing with Fusion GPS and Alexandra Chalupa was doing with the Ukrainians while she was working with DNC. That might shake things loose. There is a narrative being floated that Russia gets all blame. Russia was just trying to sow discord in US society and everyone was victimized by what they did. That might stop everyone once Stone is convicted and Corsi gets a slap on the wrist for hanging Stone for something or other, probably witness tampering. It’s already being floated. We’ll have to see.

    RR’s June 17 appointment letter of Mueller specifies that Mueller is “authorized to conduct the investigation confirmed by then-FBI Director James 8. Comey in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017,”

    It make’s no mention of McCabe’s 2 new investigations.

    Did RR not know A MONTH LATER that McCabe had opened investigations directly on PDJT?
    Certainly McCabe’s “solid ground team” (read: Strzok) knew about McCabe’s investigations when they transitioned to SCO.

    Are we now closer to confirmation that the Aug 2 clarification memo in part was required to include McCabe’s investigations?

Back then, they, and everyone else, unlike today, saw police work as a “helping” profession. If you recall, they were a persecuted group, partly because, well, they drank. I can say that because I grew up here and pretty much everyone I knew was a McThis or an O’That. 😉 Anyway, I just wanted to share that: that the Irish a century ago chose police work as a “helping” profession, and thus the cliche “Irish cop” was born.

    Even if you take McCabe’s concerns at face value (which I don’t), the fact that no collusion with Russia has been found shows exactly why the FBI and DOJ should not have tried to investigate a President in an effort to eventually oust him from office. The facts show that they were wrong as to those “concerns” anyway since no violations of any law were found. They were trying to interfere with the will of the US voters. Of course, it was all a PRETENSE for a willy nilly, unconstitutional, and expensive investigation of Trump. Thus, their assertions of “concern” about Russian interference fail factually as they simultaneously violated the Constitution when discussing the 25th Amendment. They should be charged with crimes.

    The phrase we often hear from the media, swamp dwellers, and other so-called pundits is “we are just talking about the upper part of the “FBI” (insert here whatever department or agency of your choosing), not the people on the ground.”

    What is failed to be realized, is you cannot separate the two. Unless the people who have committed these crimes (the coup and subsequent witch hunt if you will) are brought to justice, there is no justice.

      Scroll back up and read each of the questions the Senators asked McCabe.

      You will notice that each asks if the firing of Comey interfered with the Russia Investigation. His answer is a solid – No.

      With that testimony in mind… Why did he immediately start an Obstruction of Justice investigation against the POTUS the day after the Comey firing?

      McCabe testified under oath that nothing and nobody obstructed the investigations(s), yet he opened an obstruction investigation.

      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.

    Implicit in “We need to lock in ____ in a formal chargeable way. Soon.” is the notion that without Comey, the corrupt small group could not operate, which means, of course, (no surprise to CTH readers), Saint Comey was neck deep in this, though he’s been trying mightily to portray himself as Clueless-in-Connecticut.

    Let’s see him tell it to a judge.

    It’s possible to read this as having nothing whatsoever to do with Comey, and he will surely try to insist that, and that it had everything to do with McCabe being neck deep in things, and gosh darn, poor James Comey trusted his deputy. But sucks to be you, Jimmy Boy! With power comes responsibility. You don’t get to delegate the stink off you. You can delegate the day-to-day so you can be a part-time Director and loll about Connecticut 4 days week when you should be working, but it doesn’t work that way. Stink travels. Stink sticks.

      “Protect” is a relative term. To this point it appears Rosenstein has been protecting himself, probably more than anything or anybody else.

Mueller is protecting The Institution by obscuring corrupt behavior behind 347 indictments and sending 70 year-olds to jail for the rest of their natural born lives for missing a couple tax payments. By extension, Mueller is protecting Rosenstein, but not necessarily on purpose. And together they are protecting Comey, McCabe, Lynch, et al… to varying degrees of “on purpose”, “by extension”, “by necessity”, etc. Somewhere in there was an attempt to bring down a duly-elected President Of The United States… but, for the most part, and IMO, The System has been in CYA/Obscure/Deflect Mode for the past 18+ months.

      So whether or not Barr explicitly “protects” Mueller, the overall objective and end effect is the same.

They did not want to risk having the roles of Brennan/Clapper/Lynch get revealed as scapegoats. Thus started the internecine warfare between these two competing coup conspiracies which continues to this day. Trump has been fighting on two fronts since the beginning.

    A Dec 2018 CNN article makes it sound like McCabe took his time after the Comey firing deciding if he should open an obstruction case against Trump, when in fact he did so the very next day. (smh)

    Washington (CNN)In the hectic eight days after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and top FBI officials viewed Trump as a leader who needed to be reined in, according to two sources describing the sentiment at the time. They discussed a range of options, including the idea of Rosenstein wearing a wire while speaking with Trump, which Rosenstein later denied. Ultimately, then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe took the extraordinary step of opening an obstruction of justice investigation even before special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed, the sources said. The obstruction probe was an idea the FBI had previously considered, but it didn’t start until after Comey was fired. The justification went beyond Trump’s firing of Comey, according to the sources, and also included the President’s conversation with Comey in the Oval Office asking him to drop the investigation into his former national security adviser Michael Flynn. https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/06/politics/rosenstein-comey-firing-obstruction-probe/index.html

    So here it looks like they wanted to open an obstruction investigation because of Trump’s conversation with Comey in January regarding Flynn (according to Comey at least). Why didn’t they do it then? Maybe Comey was against it. But as soon as Comey was fired and McCabe was temporarily put in the Director spot, they had to get it done so must have used the Comey firing PLUS the Flynn stuff as their reason. None of them knew how long they were going to be around after Comey was fired, so they had to work very quickly.

    And remember, after Comey was fired on May 9 his memos were leaked by his pal, forgot the guy’s name, on May 16 or around that date, announcing to the world that Trump had (according to Comey) asked Comey to drop the Flynn investigation back during a conversation they had in mid-Feb. The very next day Rosenstein appointed Muller to be Special Counsel. Lots of stuff went down in May. Wow. President Trump is an amazing man..

A CNN article says there was a buzz at the FBI that Comey would be fired but there’s no talk of it between Strzok and Page in their texts at least. They were both talking about moving on to new jobs, it doesn’t seem like they had a plan in place. Strzok wrote about taking an FBI job in Sacramento and Page wrote “I’m done with the greater good. It’s not worth this”. Did Rosenstein not tell them he was planning to appoint a Special Counsel? He had told the Dem Senators he would when he was trying to nail down his confirmation in April 2017. (He was confirmed on Apr 25.) I think Strzok, Page, McCabe, and Comey didn’t know Rosenstein was intending to appoint a Special Counsel. Special Counsel would be far better than any collusion or obstruction investigation launched by the FBI, right?

    • Obstruction of justice is well understood, and corrupt acts need be demonstrated. What the President said is hardly obstruction of justice. That was well understood then, and well understood now. The only reason obstruction of justice was even discussed is, I guess, Weissman with his big brain told the MSM to run with it, while he with his big brain developed a novel theory of obstruction of justice. Remember, merely calling off an investigation of an incredibly corrupt person is NOT obstruction of justice as long as there was no quid-pro-quo between the would-be target and the President, or other corrupt acts on the part of the President.

Did that step occur in a subsequent meeting, e.g. did Rosenstein request that he be wired?Did McCabe provide him with that authorization? Does counting noses constitute a “step”. Were cabinet members contacted? Other than planning a coup what steps were taken to further that plan? Is having a second meeting alone a step?
        Multiple meetings may indicate that little steps were taken. between the meetings.

    Reports: McConnell Backed Emergency Declaration to Prevent Trump Veto of Flawed Border Security Bill

    https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2019/02/15/reports-mcconnell-backed-emergency-declaration-to-prevent-trump-veto-of-border-security-bill/

    The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media.

    The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.”

    One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement. “The legislation was released just before midnight Wednesday, giving lawmakers and the White House very little time to review it before voting,” said the Post. “Lawmakers defended the rushed timeline because of the impending shutdown deadline.”

    That closed process allowed pro-migration Democrats to include a wide variety of pro-migration policies and to give Texas Democrats a veto over wall construction until October 2019. The Democratic wins over passive GOP negotiators prompted a veto threat from Trump, which was averted when McConnell promise to support the controversial emergency declaration that he had earlier rejected.

  40. McCabe reminds me of a previous FBI Deputy Director. Mark Felt, AKA Deep Throat, had solid intel on the Watergate break-in and RNC misadventures. Rather than share the intel with Congressional oversight or open an official investigation, he obstructed justice by hiding the info. When President Nixon passed over Felt for the FBI Director position, Felt got his revenge by creating the persona ‘Deep Throat’ and slowly leaking the intel to a couple of naive cub reporters, Woodward & Bernstein. W&B were too young to question Deep Throat’s motives, and their editors wouldn’t dare look a gift-horse in the mouth. The media and FBI used this string of felony leaks and felony withholding of intel to destroy a Presidency then, and they tried the exact same thing now.

  42. The 25th amendment plot is a coup attempt within a broader coup attempt. Prof Der isolates the 25th amendment issue because it is easy to prove the conspiracy, and is a starke, constitutional violation. He hesitates to say that a crime has been committed because the facts are unclear as to whether steps were taken to further the conspiracy as to the 25th amendment issue. This make shake out very soon.
    As far as the big coup( All the attempts to remove Trump)the “steps taken” issue” is easier to prove, but proving the larger conspiracy is more difficult (but provable later)

    The 25th amendment issue is low hanging fruit for a prosecutor to act quickly and indict which is what we need. It may be simple and shocking enough to convince a reluctant DC Grand jury- and isolated enough to escape Mueller’s control of the proof. The little coup of course sheds light on th bigger coup and the public’s acceptance of the larger coup.
    The number of meetings matters. The more meetings the tighter the conspiracy and the more possibilties that steps were taken to advance the conspiracy involving the application of the 25th amendment.

    McCabe and Pelley are drowning in this right now. Hopefully Barr is watching.

      The more times McCabe met with the miscreants the more evidence likely there was an agreement. Thus, McCabe walks back his remarks.

      McCabe could also be criminally charged with conspiring to violate the President’s civil rights, which could have more appeal to a DC jury.

    Page, Baker and McCabe (testifying) were all at the May 11, 2017 hearing. Since McCabe is talking about his conversations with Rosenstein now, it seems that McCabe would be able to say now whether Comey told him that he had let the president know that he was not a target of the investigation. In fact it would be nice if Page, Baker and McCabe all had to say if Comey told them that he had let the president know he was not a target of the investigation.
