Andrew McCabe 60 Minutes Interview – Moments and Excerpts – Also: Did McCabe Leak The Michael Flynn Phone Call?…

McCabe “Duping Delight”

Tonight CBS broadcast a painstakingly edited interview between host Scott Pelley and former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

The transparently political CBS media corporation has skin-in-the-game when it comes to broadcast politics.

Former CBS Vice-President David Rhodes is the brother of President Obama’s senior White House adviser Ben Rhodes.  You might also remember when CBS 60 Minutes intentionally hid a quote from President Obama when Obama denied the Benghazi attack was carried out by “terrorists” [STORY HERE].

60 Minutes has a history of unethical journalistic conduct in covering for the Obama administration.  So it didn’t surprise anyone who follows politics to see Andrew McCabe’s first interview being carried out within this very specific propaganda machine.  Here’s a few “non broadcast” portions of the interview.

NOTE at 03:33 of this video snippet a characteristic called “duping delight“:  The pleasure of being able to manipulate someone, often made visible to others by flashing a smile at an inappropriate moment. [Watch the moment at precisely 03:33]

In this video segment Andrew McCabe says Rod Rosenstein asked him to contact James Comey for advice about appointing a special counsel — after Comey’s firing:

Andrew McCabe: Duping Delight

Note from the Office of Inspector General invesgitation, Andrew McCabe has a history of lying to cover his tracks:

.

And don’t forget, Andrew McCabe was also likely the person who leaked the content of the Mike Flynn phone call between Flynn and Russian Abassador Kislyak.  A massive leak of classified information:

Within the case against Michael Flynn…. Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack filed a cover letter attempting to explain the reason for the Flynn interview on January 24th, 2017, and the official filing of the interview notes (FD-302) on February 15th, 2017, and then again on May 31st, 2017.

To explain the FBI delay, Van Grack claimed the FD-302 report “inadvertently” had a header saying “DRAFT DOCUMENT/DELIBERATIVE MATERIAL” (screen grab)

What the special counsel appears to be obfuscating to the court is there was factually a process of deliberation within the investigative unit, headed by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, surrounding the specific wording of the 302 report on the Flynn interview.

Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack was attempting to hide the length of the small group deliberations. It seemed he did not want the court to know Andrew McCabe was involved in shaping how the Flynn-302 was written.

We know there was a deliberative process in place, seemingly all about how to best position the narrative, because we can see the deliberations in text messages between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok: See below (note the dates):

The text message conversation above is February 14th, 2017. The Michael Flynn FD-302 was officially entered into the record on February 15th, 2017, per the report:

Obviously the interview took place on January 24th, 2017. The FD-302 was drafted on January 24th, and then later edited, shaped, and ultimately approved by McCabe, on February 14th, then entered into the official record on February 15th.

It was a deliberative document from the outset. Thanks to the Strzok/Page text messages we know the cover letter from the Special Counsel is misleading.  The Feb 15th, 2017, date was the day after McCabe approved it.

May 17th, 2017, Robert Mueller was assigned as special Counsel. Then, the FD-302 report was re-entered on May 31st, 2017, removing the header; paving the way for Mueller’s team to use the content therein.

    Sundance and CTH folks, what needs way more scrutiny is the Trump FBI interviews after Comey was fired.

    It has been reported that McCabe and Mueller both interviewed for the position. At whose advice were these two interviewed? Rosenstein? Also, were they interviewing as legitimate people seeking the job or confidential informants as part of the 25th amendment crowd? Remember, Mueller was named special counsel right after his interview, no way he didn’t know that this was potentially taking place even while he interviewed. This whole episode stinks to high heaven.

      “It has been reported that McCabe and Mueller both interviewed for the position.”

      Not Mueller, only McCabe, according to this: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/4-candidates-trump-interviewed-fbi-director. My guess is McCabe got interviewed because he was acting director. It’s kinda like the thing to do. Judging from newspaper reports, McCabe and Trump did not hit it off.

      Three weeks later, June 7, Wray was revealed as the nominee for Director. No mention of a Mueller interview anywhere I can find. It could be Mueller was told by “the small group” his job was going to be a SC, not Director.

      As far as McCabes involvement in the 25th amendment issue goes, it would be interesting to determine if that discussion by McCabe took place before or after his interview.

        Mueller and Rosenstein both interviewed for FBI director. They walked back from the White House to main justice together. I am fairly certain I read that hear at cth.

        My gut tells me one or both eas wearing a wire.

      I thought Rosey went to the WH WITH Mueller for interview. BTW, who inside WH recommended Rosey? MD is just as bad as CA. So many bad picks, and now Koch Brother’s Marc Short back to WH! Why another Never Trumper?

    Oh lordie, the city of New Orleans government is atap dancin’ like all gitout. The ‘Five Innocent Bystanders Shot in Police Shootout’ headline’s playing to a national audience…just before Mardi Gras.

    Still no word on how many, if any, were shot by police officers but the city’s got its Greek Chorus out there trying ton spin the event and calm the public. So far the police shooting are listed as NOPD, State Police and at least one unspecified Federal police officer. Local tort lawyers are still blowing steam from their dilated nostrils and raring to go, just as soon as the bullets in the civilians are ascribed the race to the civil clerk’s office will be on!

    City’s starting to close ranks around the shootees ‘just being in the wrong place at the wrong time’ but the question of: ‘should the police have approached the armed robbery suspect in a crowded area’ still hangs heavy in the air.

    Maybe it wasn’t a “duping delight” but another clip comes to mind to me that is similar. It is when John Carpenter won a $million on Who Wants to be a Millionaire. He cracks a smile when he knows the answer then sort of bends the rules.

    McCabe is exactly like Strzok. They’re both sociopaths. Strzok is quite open about it, both in his texts and Congressional testimony. He’s openly diseased. Take a look at McCabe and he’s exactly the same, he’s just got an extremely rigid mask covering it up. The eyes tell all though. And the actions.

    The circle is closing though. Even with a friendly media outlet, he can’t cover up his past actions. The IG report exposed him to prosecution, and IG’s almost never do that. This guy is in trouble and he knows it. Others know, and this entire media push was contrived to respond to that exposure.

    These sociopaths are attempting to get out a narrative now, because Trump has been very disciplined and hasn’t let out much. He’s been patiently waiting for the public to catch up with this. These DoJ sociopaths are accustomed to quick manipulations and trickery, and leveraging their quarry’s mistakes. Eventually, the rabbit always breaks from cover and runs, and he always runs in a circle back to the hunter.

    This rabbit isn’t a rabbit, as it happens. Foolish predators sometimes screw up and their quarry kills them.

    Trump’s waiting for Mueller to deliver his nothingburger report and be escorted out of the building. Then the fun starts.

      Sundance has documented how they’ve been trying to get a narrative out continuously, not just now at this late time. One of the things I was thinking about was how the different narratives and preferred venues might have shaped coverage by reporters who got their leaks. For instance, consider the reporter who put out the article the day before Comey’s testimony claiming Comey would testify that he never told Trump he wasn’t the target. Seems highly likely that that reporter would have heard from McCabe explicitly that Trump was the target of multiple investigations, at least one dating from when Comey was still Director. They got leaks from the Clinton team, and assumed they were in sync with the story from the Obama team.

      Always helpful to go back and read articles considering the time period, in light of new information.
