Another Very Sketchy McCabe Interview – McCabe Obfuscates Details, Clouds Timeline and Embraces Gang-of-Eight…

The best thing for an examination of the 2016/2017 seditious effort is for former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to keep talking.

In this NBC interview McCabe attempts to cleverly obfuscate the original July 31, 2016, FBI counterintelligence investigation (Crossfire Hurricane/”Spygate”) with the second investigation he launched on May 10th, 2017.

.

Worth noting is McCabe talks about briefing the IC congressional oversight group known as the ‘Gang of Eight’ in May 2017. [Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Devin Nunes, Adam Schiff, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Richard Burr and Mark Warner]

Here is where the actions of Paul Ryan and Adam Schiff to remove Devin Nunes from active engagement with the Russia probe in March 2017 comes into play.

Remember during the 2016 election Harry Reid was Senate Minority Leader and Gang of eight member. Also, Dianne Feinstein was vice-chair of the Senate Intel Committee and was part of the gang-of-eight; however after the 2016 election Feinstein abdicated her position and Harry Reid retired. In 2017 Harry Reid was replaced by Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein was replaced by Mark Warner.

2016 Gang of Eight  (During “Spygate”)

After the Trump inauguration Devin Nunes found out about the unmasking of Trump campaign officials (via Spygate operations) in/around March 2016. The unmasking requests were part of the Obama PDB (presidential daily briefing). After discovering the activity, and viewing the PDB material at the White House SCIF, Nunes made public statements highlighting his alarm over the unmasking issues and what was contained in the material he reviewed.

In response, and with the media/democrats having fits about Nunes statements, Speaker Paul Ryan subsequently removed Nunes from his responsibilities as Chair of the HPSCI as it pertained to specific matters involving the Russia Probe.

Therefore it is probable Nunes was carved out of the May 2017 McCabe briefing by intentional design of the overall political effort.  Someone needs to ask Nunes about this for clarity.

UPDATE: Shortly after posting this article, we get an answer.  McCabe and Rosenstein wanted Devin Nunes removed from briefings – they failed, and Nunes remained:

[…] “Nunes was suspected of having surreptitiously been given intelligence by presidential aides during a nighttime rendezvous at the House, information that was then publicized,” McCabe writes. “Look who’s here, I said to Rod. Rosenstein understood. He went to talk to Nunes, pulled him aside. Came back, told me, Nunes is staying, he says he’s not recused from this, he refuses to leave.”

And it worked.

“I look at Rod,” McCabe writes. “Rod said, At the end of the day it’s his recusal, it’s his choice, I can’t enforce it. We can’t kick him out of the room.”  (read more)

2017 Gang of Eight: (McCabe Briefing)

The synergy of anti-Trump politicians in positions of power (both parties) and the corrupt efforts of the intelligence community to usurp the 2016 election has always been visible. The only question has been: to what extent?

To what extent did Republicans, specifically Senate Republicans, coordinate with John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey and later Andrew McCabe?  This has been a pondered sideline question without any substantive investigative review.

Throughout 2016 the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) was transparently the epicenter of the Decepticon effort to support any effort to stop candidate Trump.  After the election it was the SSCI who was attempting covert contact with Christopher Steele and many of the players behind “Spygate”.  It was from this corrupt committee where Security Director James Wolfe was identified as leaking information to the media.

As Andrew McCabe keeps talking perhaps people will start to turn their inquires toward those Senate co-conspirators….. though, given how far the DOJ and FBI went to cover-up the activity of Mr. Wolfe, I wouldn’t count on much reaching sunlight.

FUBAR.

    Fascinating to me that in September of 2018, yahoo news, NBC News, WaPo, George Snufflelufagus, etc, initially reported that Rod Rosenstein, in the May 16th meeting, asked the question along the lines of “Well what do you want, do you want me to wear a wire?” (which leads me to believe that Andy McCabe was proposing that Rosenstein take some action against PDJT).

    However, in September 2018, the NYT’s went in a different direction with their reporting on Rod Rosenstein and IMO it’s a fascinating read in conjunction with Andrew McCabe’s two recent interviews.

      I think it is past time to take a serious look at these “six ways from Sunday” the intelligence community have of getting back at you. Apparently, congress is afraid of them for this very reason. The government is supposed to be run by the people’s elected representatives and The President, not the intelligence community. I think we have just gotten a really good view of how they shape the events they want to take place and it is not pretty.

  5. So in May of 2017 at least Burr and Warner of the Gang of 8 were briefed during the period of time after Comey was fired and before the Special Counsel was appointed. During that briefing Warner was encouraging the DAG Rosenstein to appoint a Special Counsel. Comey at some point after testified that the dossier was uncorroborated.

    What evidence apart from the dossier and the fact that Trump won did the participants have that tied the Trump campaign to alleged so-called “Russian collusion”, so that his campaign could be made the SOLE FOCUS of the Special Counsel? Weren’t the members of the Gang of 8 under an obligation to ask exactly what that evidence was before they pushed for appointment of a Special Counsel? If there was no such evidence implicating the Trump Campaign, shouldn’t the Gang of 8 have blown the roof off of this in May of 2017, announcing that a rogue group of DOJ lawyers and FBI agents were trying to overturn an election through appointment of a special counsel?

    Finally, if the participants honestly thought that a Special Counsel should have been appointed in the circumstances even though there was no evidence tying the Trump Campaign to so-called “Russian Collusion”, why did they exclude the Clinton Campaign from investigation as well? If it was a fair and open investigation, shouldn’t both campaigns been investigated?

      • But but but that was “manufactured” in precisely the same sense as the dossier – as part of a dirty tricks campaign orchestrated by a firm that specializes in such activities and that was hired by the rival campaign! The AG must have known about the meeting because she authorized a waiver so the lawyer could enter the country to attend that meeting. Further, when does offering opposition research to a campaign implicate that campaign in a criminal conspiracy so that it can be spied upon?

      Not one person to my knowledge has every asked McCabe what his “Evidence” against Trump was. None of the softball pitchers on NBC/CBS or anywhere else seem to think that is an appropriate question. I would have also thought that half of the “Gang of Eight” would have asked that question when briefed but it appears that I am correct. To any sane person hearing that an investigation was about to start on someone that you work with or know, you would ask what did they do and what do you have against them?

    Another “tell” that Trump may have know that he was the target of a counter intelligence investigation: Not one senator voted to allow Trump recess appointments. McConnell most likely told Republican senators that voting to allow recess appointments may hurt the President. That is all McConnell probably told them. McConnell knew that allowing Trump recess appointments may open the President to obstruction of justice charges. Notice that Trump never made a big deal about recess appointments! McConnell trying to protect the President? Maybe.

      No, I don’t think mitch was doing anything to protect The President. He was patiently waiting on the sidelines for the coup to take place. He avoided overt actions as much as possible while throwing up obstacles when he felt he could get away with them. He has been a bit more cooperative since the midterms as it seems the tide has turned.

    One theory–It becomes painstakingly obvious the more you force yourself to listen to McCabe’s interviews that the alleged stress and concern he had at the time was an early form of TDS. He saw what his political biases compelled him to see and he formulated opinions based on his preconceived notions and hatred of the President. Self proclaimed guardian of democracy McCabe had no clear evidence to back up his actions.

    On the other hand, it could also have been just a cold, thoughtful, calculating and organized political coup attempt by a cabal of bitter, corrupted Deep State officials on a man they both hated and feared because he defeated their gravy train choice for President and could potentially reveal their numerous illegal crimes.

      Maybe a combination of the two, I noticed how he pushed the stress and anxiety he was under at the time. I don’t doubt he hated Trump and was probably afraid for his future to continue as Deputy Director. If pressure was being applied by other more powerful intel agencies and influential senators to do something, and he was also motivated by self-interest it was easy to make the decision. The stress would have been real, but the cold, calculating, organized plot this cabal developed was just that, a seditious plot. He knew they had no real evidence. He knew how what they did have was developed. No amount of talking about his stress and his true beliefs can explain that away.

    Did McCabe say Trump was calling the investigation a “witch hunt” in the fall of 2016? At about 4:00 in the video? I don’t recall Trump using that term publicly until much later.

    Other than that this McCabe dude is deluded.

      James Stacy, I noticed that also. I don’t think Trump ever used the term witch hunt until after Mueller was appointed. He would have had no reason. That was May of ’17. McCabe probably meant to say Fall of ’17, but he is under a lot of stress. Stress is the downside of lying and covering up things. Deluded is a kind term to use for him.

    To survive this coup Trump must have had help. I suspect a few Republicans in the know were covertly helping the President. They helped the President only because the President would then owe them a future favour, and because they were knee deep in the corruption and down the line when this coup was being cleaned up the President may overlook their corruption. Attorney General Barr is the perfect choice to navigate which scoundrel gets prosecuted and who gets a pass. I would bet a donut that Trump would give all a pass if only Comey could be brought down.
