Lawfare Expects McCabe Arrest – That Explains Why CNN Hired Him….

The Lawfare group are the external influence agents for corrupt politically motivated lawyers working in government.  The group fingerprints show up everywhere including among “beach friends” and legal schemes hatched from the premise of their assembly.  Lawfare = use the law as a tool in warfare.  [Adult Alinsky disciples.]

The Lawfare group is headed by Comey’s friend Benjamin Wittes; and the group give resistance advice to ideologues inside government as well as outside organizations who are resisting (suing) the Trump administration.

So when Benjamin Wittes announces to his ideological resistance followers:

…”You should thus expect charges against McCabe to be forthcoming any day. And if such charges don’t happen, that doesn’t mean they weren’t planned but, rather, that some extrinsic event has intervened”… (link)

…readers can assume Lawfare leadership has known about McCabe’s risk position for quite some time. Remember, former FBI chief legal counsel James Baker also works for Lawfare.

It is almost guaranteed Andrew McCabe and his lawyer Michael Bromwich are in daily conversations with their network of friends inside Lawfare.  This same ideological network has vast affiliates throughout media. The pending indictment of Andrew McCabe would explain why CNN hired him.

Knowing the DOJ was likely to indict McCabe, CNN could help frame a narrative that serves both their interests.  That narrative was already in the New York Times article describing the potential for the indictment.

When McCabe is charged the media narrative will be it’s because he took the job with CNN… Trump/Barr weaponizing the DOJ and trying to kill free speech etc.  CNN doesn’t have to defend their action in hiring a known liar, they’ll instead frame McCabe as a victim, a fellow traveler to the larger cause of justice – whose indictment is evidence of how far Trump and Barr will go to destroy their enemies etc.

Hey, at least now we know Andrew McCabe is about to be indicted.

Additionally, Wittes goes on to say that something else must be behind the conduct of McCabe if the DOJ is actually going to indict him:

[…] But criminal charges? At least based on what’s in the inspector general’s report, this is very far from a criminal case. Criminal dispositions on false statements matters in internal investigations are exceptionally rare. Absent some gross aggravating factor, I struggle to think of any other examples. Workplace false statements are normally handled through internal disciplinary means, not criminal charges. (link)

Essentially, the Lawfare position is that McCabe was authorized to leak to the media; ergo, the investigation of McCabe leaking to the media was a non-criminal investigation…. ergo, according to Lawfare logic, McCabe lying about non-criminal conduct to the FBI INSD (internal investigators) is not itself criminal.  To wit Andrew McCabe is only lying as a common workplace type of lying, not illegal lying in a criminal investigation.

So Wittes says there must be more to the story…

Which then expands the Lawfare mindset to believe the decision to indict must be related to something discovered within the criminal investigation of events in/around the FISA application (intentionally and materially false presentations to the court), etc.

Perhaps….  I guess we’ll soon find out.

However, it is worth remembering how this entire internecine mess was started.

Andrew McCabe lied to INSD about leaking to the media when the INSD was investigating leaks to the media.  McCabe’s statements contradicted the statements of his assigned DOJ lawer, Lisa Page; who said McCabe instructed and coordinated the leaks to journalist Devlin Barrett of the Wall Street Journal.

When confronted with two sets of competing stories, Lisa Page -vs- Andrew McCabe, it appears the IG-INSD asked Page if she could prove her side of the story.  The need to prove her version of events appears to be the impetus for Page revealing her text messaging.  Page’s texts proved her story, and proved McCabe was lying.

However, from that text messaging review (June/July 2017), in addition to texts between Page and McCabe, the investigation turned-up discussions between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.

And that’s how that whole thing got started…

    CNN knew something in advance, that’s why they hired McCabe. It will be a ratings goldmine for them. It is a win win if McCabe goes to jail or the DC cesspool sets him free.

    As other commenters have put forth, is this is purely a way for McCabe to recieve large amounts of bribe money to keep his mouth shut about the other coup plotters. CNN pays McCabe an obscene salary, which the deep state plotters funnel back to CNN and viola a bribe scrubbed clean. Of course CNN will charge a small fee to facilitate the money transfer.

    If McCabe is indicted (A mighty big if, I am not getting my hopes up) the prosecution should immediately move to gag all participants in the trial. That would deny CNN the ratings bonanza they are angling for. Plus that would also shut him up about anything in the Archey Declarations that CNN is hoping to use him to try and twist the most likely devastating info against the Coup Plotters and sow disinformation.

    That is the reason the FBI waited to pick up the rest of memos up from Comey’s house. Comey was trying to manufacture a way to defuse a bomb he had written in the Previous Comey memos, but alas Trump sacked him while he was away from his office. That is why Archey was as busy as a cat covering crap. They had to block those memos from getting out , because I believe it would be over for the FBI agency

    Your move AG Barr. The United States as we know it is riding on this decision

    McCabe went to work for CNN so he’d benefit from the traditional advanced notice CNN gets from the feds before an arrest. Ask Roger Stone how that works.

    In a sane world, McCabe working for CNN should play against their ability to protect him. CNN took a gamble hiring the proven liar, who likely lied to them about his criminal exposure. If bigger charges than some leaking and lying come down, they would be embarrassed and their news credibility wrecked. Oh, wait, CNN has no shame or credibility. Never mind.

    Sherwood Anderson wrote a novel Poor White back in 1920 that sounds as pertinent today as his thoughts back then.:
    “At the seat of the American Government at Washington, hordes of somewhat clever and altogether unhealthy young men were already being employed for the purpose. In a sweeter age many of these young men might have become artists, but they had not been strong enough to stand against the growing strength of dollars. They had become instead newspaper correspondents and secretaries to politicians. All day and every day they used their minds and their talents as writers in the making of puffs and the creating of myths concerning the men whom they were employed. They were like the trained sheep that are used at great slaughter-houses to lead other sheep into the killing pens. Having befouled their own minds for hire, they made their living by befouling the minds of others. Already they had found out that no great cleverness was required for the work they had to do. What was required was constant repetition. It was only necessary to say over and over that the man by whom they were employed was a great man. No proof had to be brought forward to substantiate the claims they made; no great deeds had to be done by the men who were thus made great, as brands of crackers or breakfast food are made salable. Stupid and prolonged and insistent repetition was what was necessary.”
    As we all know, it will be prolonged and insistent chattering repetition from our fake news media.

    Maybe, their is a different tact possible. Trump/Barr could move to revoke the CNN’s right to broadcast since hiring McCabe would damage CNN viewers with the prospective of a convicted lier, right? Therefore, the quality of the broadcast would be negatively impacted.

    As to the substance of Trump’s threat: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issues broadcast licenses to stations, not networks. Thus, to revoke NBC’s right to broadcast, the FCC would need to terminate the licenses that the network’s parent company, Comcast, holds for various NBC stations.

    The FCC generally does not resort to such measures unless a licensed broadcast entity has engaged in severe, illegal conduct.

    We need to be thankful — whatever happens — that McCabe’s FBI career was ended after POTUS took office. McCabe is a bad man. Whether or not he is indicted, and whether or not he is convicted, the fact remains that McCabe is corrupt man whose law enforcement career is over.

    Also, please keep attention on McCabe’s counsel, Bromwich. He is a particularly unethical swamp creature who covered up (among other things) the FBI lab scandal and participated in the discrediting of a whistleblower under Bill Clinton. Bromwich also spearheaded the whitewashing of the violent, unethical conduct of FBI agents after the OKC bombing. Google “MIchael Keith Trentadue” for a sample of Bromwich’s cover-up activities. It hardly needs to be said that Bromwich was nose-to-nose with Kathleen Blasey Ford during the Kavenaugh hearings, but if one needs a more recent example of Bromwich’s vile connections, look no further than the headlines of the past year.

      Speaking of Seth Rich in the context of Andrew McCabe’s woes it is important to remember this from Sundance’s post:

      “Andrew McCabe lied to INSD about leaking to the media when the INSD was investigating leaks to the media. McCabe’s statements contradicted the statements of his assigned DOJ lawer, Lisa Page; who said McCabe instructed and coordinated the leaks to journalist Devlin Barrett of the Wall Street Journal.”

      McCabe was heavily involved in organized, purposeful leaking to individual, picked reporters. He involved others in the leaking, such as Page and Strzok. Now, we have the Butowsky defamation filing about just who was Seymour Hersh’s source inside the FBI/DOJ that Seth Rich and his brother Aaron stole the DNC emails and SOLD them to Wikileaks and that the DNC emails were NOT the motive for Seth Rich’s subsequent murder. The last point is the one overlooked the most by supporters of the Seth Rich narrative, that Seth Rich was NOT killed because of the emails, as if the FBI would know the motive for a murder for which they did not identify the perpetrator. How could they know the motive without also having a logical suspect, or known perpetrator, for the murder?

      From paragraph 57 of Butowsky’s legal filing:

      57. The website DebunkingRodWheelersClaims.com (now at DeBunkingRodWheelersClaims.net) was launched in November of 2017, and it published texts, emails, audio, and video showing that Rod Wheeler had never been misrepresented by Mr. Butowsky, Ms. Zimmerman, or Fox News, including the email quoted above in Paragraph 51. The evidence on the website showed unequivocally that Mr. Wheeler had lied to other media about them. The website also included audio of famed journalist Seymour “Sy” Hersh stating that he had confirmed that Seth Rich was responsible for leaking the DNC emails. According to Mr. Hersh, who was by no means aRepublican or a Trump supporter, he could not find a media outlet willing to publish the Seth Rich story. In a separate phone call with Mr. Butowsky, Mr. Hersh said he obtainedhis information about Seth Rich from Mr. McCabe, the deputy FBI director.”

      Now the questions that remain are–IF McCabe actually leaked this highly detailed story to Hersh, WHEN did he leak it and to what other reporters? Did he leak the story prior to the first claims that the DNC and/or Hillary Clinton had Seth Rich murdered because he stole the emails, or after those stories first began to circulate?

He was fully on-board with letting the “matter” of Weiner’s laptop stay on the back-burner until after the election, but the NYC people were creating a paper trail by sending memos to higher and higher officials, and it would be hard to explain away their warnings. Comey acted because NYC people were threatening to go public with what they had. Even though Hillary supporters were outraged at Comey, he was trying to handle things in a way that would be least damaging to Hillary’s interests. And it almost worked, she almost did win.

    Suppose, just suppose that McCabe IS indicted and arrested at CNN studios in NYC. He would be housed in the MCCC, no? At least until his bail hearing anyway. But, what if he were assigned Jeffrey Epstein’s former cell? My understanding is that sometimes VERY odd things happen in there. Inexplicable things, even!

    Lying to the FISA court.

    That’s what McCabe is going to get hammered for. Not this penny ante stuff about leaks to the WSJ.

    McCabe knew the Dossier was junk. Bruce Ohr told him that.

    And he knew it even before Ohr told him it was junk. Because Steele worked for McCabe. McCabe got Steels’s stuff directly from Steele. McCabe’s no dummy, he knew it was junk from the gitgo. But, he still put it out there for the FISA judge. Naughty boy!

    Be interesting to see how the prosecutors lay out their case. And it’ll be interesting to see how McCabes right hand man, Strzok, gets sucked into this.

    CNN cannot think that hiring McCabe is a good idea. Look what happened when they hired Avenatti. They looked like fools and their ratings took another dive. Maybe he gets indicted and maybe he gets convicted. It all depends what the charges end up being. If it’s just lying, he’ll walk. If they charge him with Sedition or other more serious charges, he may do some actual singing on Lynch and the rest of them.

    You know you are F’d when the best your friends can do is to say they support you while they throw you under the bus. So, what I’m reading is…..Yeah, McCabe is guilty, BUT… it is Donald Trump’s fault! Trump was the only one “militating” in favor of it. Sure, sure, all the facts indicate that McCabe is guilty as charged, but pffff…not that big of a deal!

    When your friends have to make the following statements to SUPPORT you, it ain’t going well.

    “You should thus expect charges against McCabe to be forthcoming any day. And if such charges don’t happen, that doesn’t mean they weren’t planned but, rather, that some extrinsic event has intervened. Why is that shocking? Because as best as I can tell, the facts available on the public record simply don’t support such charges. The only visible factor militating in favor of the Justice Department charging McCabe, in fact, is that the department has been on the receiving end of a sustained campaign by President Trump demanding McCabe’s scalp.”

    Translation: We got nothing other than Orange Man Bad.

    And the following quotes are self-explanatory:

    “To be sure, the inspector general’s report that prompted McCabe’s firing paints a deeply troubling portrait of McCabe’s conduct.” BUT….

    “I have no reason to disbelieve the inspector general’s account of this episode and no interest in defending McCabe’s alleged conduct.” BUT..

    “It’s true that the FBI routinely treats lack of candor as a fireable offense—BUT it remains unexplained why the Justice Department seemingly raced the clock in order to push McCabe out”

    Screwed. Completely screwed.

      And they are baldly lying about this. Dan Bongino has reiterated ceaselessly how many of the coupsters’ lies about the FISA are legally actionable.

    “Expect the truth but not necessarily prosecution.” After months of telling us AG Bar is a bulldog and that Comey, Brennan, Clapper better “lawyer up…they’ll need a batallion of attorneys.” we now hear DiGenova telling us he “wouldn’t put money on any prosecutions.” AG Barr is only interested in restoring confidence in the DOJ/FBI. Listen for yourself at 14:35 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ln_LWrQq7SI
    He suggests Barr will disclose and allow people to make their own decisions? WTF? The sedition and treason of Obummer Admin and Intel Agencies goes unpunished?

    Seriously, CNN thinks they’re that powerful? Arrogant? Yes. Criminal? Yes. Powerful? No, at least not on their own.

    If all this comes to fruition, as Sundance has laid it out, it only underscores just how damn corrupt the news media has become, and how wide and deep the leftist cabal is. This does, however, offer Mr. Barr the opportunity to show everyone that he truly is invested in law, order and truth.

    Ignore the bastards, Mr. Barr, and put this man in an orange jumpsuit. We’re waiting.

    Whoa whoa whoa, back the truck up, beep beep beep

    Is it possible that we are TOTALLY misinterpreting Wittes’ Lawfare article? Including sundance?

    Wittes starts out by saying that the NYT story “shocks me”.

    Then he puts in an excerpt from the article. Then he gives an interpretation of what THEY are saying.

    WITTES, himself, isn’t saying “You should thus expect charges against McCabe forthcoming any day…..” Wittes is saying that is what the NYT is saying.

    He says he is shocked because X, Y, Z…..all reasons that he doesnt think the government has a case.

    Then, almost in passing, he says : “It is, of course, possible that there is evidence that is not public yet. But rereading the inspector general report this morning and thinking about McCabe’s likely defense (that he was confused under the intense pressure of the circumstances), Page’s likely testimony, and the mitigating factors he will surely present, I find it hard to imagine a probability of conviction. To prosecute a case under these circumstances, in fact, seems so bizarre that you have to at least entertain the possibility that the explanation for the decision lies in something other than the merits of the case against the man.”

    Thats BS. While suggesting it, he immediately shoots it down. What he is trying to get to is the next paragraph, which is POTUS’ long list of public attacks against McCabe.

    Hes trying to spell out McCabe’s defense for him. Wittes is telling the world that McCabe should use POTUS’s tweets attacking him as their defense.

    Wittes is Comey’s boy. McCabe just said that him and Comey dont really have a relationship anymore. Maybe Wittes is truly “shocked” by this. They werent aware that the DOJ was gonna charge McCabe, now they think they are, and are scared shitless. They are scared McCabe is gonna flip and maybe he already has. So they rush to get something out there, and methodically explain all the reasons that the govt doesnt have a case, aiding his defense, and are saying in addition to all that, POTUS has tainted the jury pool, affected his access to a fair trial, has been out to get him, personal vendetta, etc, etc, etc….

    They are basically begging McCabe to fight, not cooperate, and giving everyone else in the media the ammo to push that narrative, simultaneously signaling to the prosecution “This is what we have, you will never win, etc…..”

    Read the Lawfare article again.

      Feigned “shock” so they can set up the defense, but legitimate surprise at this development? McCabe wouldnt inform them of whats going on in his case, especially if he’s thinking about cooperating.

      Good catch that Wittes is saying that the NYT is saying it, not him. And you are right, he is laying out McCabe’s defense.

      He really lays it out at the end with wishful thinking that – the threat that they will get “voluminous discovery” that he expects McCabe to seek based on their claim that Donald Trump pressured the Justice Department – is a silver bullet. He says he will wait to see what “evidence that is presented at trial”. That’s assuming McCabe will fight, not flip. I wonder how McCabe feels about that as he stares down the plank, alone.

      This article seems to be an attempt to rally the troops to prevent a break in the ranks.
