  • Surprised? Fired Anti-Trump Official McCabe Gets Hired by Anti-Trump CNN

    Surge Summary:His history indicates former Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Andrew McCabe was aggressively anti-Trump — so he’ll fit right in as a new hire at the CNN network. 

    Former Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Andrew McCabe who was fired by President Donald Trump for leaking classified information to members of the news media — who became an enemy of President Donald Trump during the presidential race — will be joining the rest of the “I hate Trump” news network  CNN.

    McCabe became well-known when a leak to the conservative journalists quoted him as boasting that he “f—ked Gen. Michael Flynn,” who worked a short time for Trump as his security adviser, and he and the FBI would now “f—k Trump.”

    McCabe has spent the past year defending his actions at the FBI, writing a book, and pushing for Trump to be removed from office. McCabe joins another controversial Obama-era figure, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, as a contributor at CNN.

    “This means that if you are a Democrat and you become embroiled in shady dealings or even criminal acts, the mainstream news media wants you on their payroll. Not only does CNN hire dishonest leftists – Brennan actually voted for a Communist presidential candidate Guy Hall in 1976 – they encourage their contributors to make up stories about how evil and racist Trump has been,” said police detective Matthew Lenier, who teaches intelligence gathering and analysis to cops.  “.McCabe was fired the same day he said he was scheduled to retire.

    McCabe, according to an inside the Beltway legal group, filed lawsuit in federal court earlier in August accusing Trump of causing his subordinates at the Justice Department to participate in an “unconstitutional plan and scheme” to have him fired. However, to this day, no one has been named by McCabe or the FBI and no one at the FBI has admitted to McCabe’s allegations against his subordinates.

    It wasn’t long ago that a team of public-interest attorneys filed three separate Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the Department of Justice seeking all of the records regarding Andrew McCabe’s political activities, travel vouchers, and employment status.

    One of those named by Judicial Watch in one of their lawsuits is none other than Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who has been exposed as a liar by his own state police department following the violent riot in Charlottesville. In fact, McAuliffe was an active part of the plot to derail the Trump campaign when he became the go-between the Clinton Foundation and McCabe’s politician wife.

    McCabe’s wife, Jill, received over $500,000.00 from the Democratic Party leadership for her political campaign at the same time her husband was supervising the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton and her email scandal. The first two lawsuits specifically seek records of McCabe’s political activities involving his wife’s failed campaign for political office and interactions with Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

    McCabe had previously testified before the Senate’s Intelligence Committee to report on “World Wide Threats,” and the committee’s Democrats had a field day attacking President Donald Trump using the self-proclaimed nonpartisan McCabe.

    But McCabe is anything but a nonpartisan public servant and Trump should have replaced him even before firing Director James Comey, say active and retired law enforcement officers. In fact, McCabe’s wife received close to half-million dollars for a political campaign that was filtered through Bill and Hillary Clinton’s close friend and business associate Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe and by Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, who chaired the Democratic National Committee.

    Andrew McCabe was also the head of the FBI group involved in the scandalous Clinton Foundation probe. It was he who allegedly made the decision against recommending Hillary Clinton be charged criminally, which Director James Comey also recommended to Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Lynch made headlines herself when she secretly met with Bill Clinton on his private plane in Arizona a mere four days before Comey announced the decision to not charge Hillary Clinton with any crimes.

    The first FOIA lawsuit sought the following:

    §Any and all records of communication between FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and other FBI or Department of Justice (“DOJ”) officials regarding, concerning or relating to ethical issues concerning the involvement of Andrew McCabe and/or his wife, Dr. Jill McCabe, in political campaigns;

    §Any and all records related to ethical guidance concerning political activities provided to Deputy Director McCabe by FBI and/or DOJ officials or elements.

    The second Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit sought communication records between then-Deputy Director McCabe and Gov. Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and the Democratic Party of Virginia including:

    §Any and all records of communication between Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and any of the following individuals:

    §Any official within the office of the Governor of Virginia, including but not limited to Governor Terry McAuliffe;

    §Any official, representative or employee with the Democratic National Committee;

    §Any official, representative or employee with the Democratic Party of Virginia.

    The third FOIA lawsuit sought the following:

    §Any and all Standard Forms 50 and 52 (i.e., SF-50s and SF-52s) for FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe;

    §Any and all requests for approvals of travel submitted by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe;

    §Any and all travel vouchers and accompanying receipts and related documentation submitted by FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe;

    §Any and all calendar entries for FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

    “There are numerous questions about the ethics and judgement of the FBI’s top leadership, particularly Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These lawsuits will help Americans ‘watch the watchers’ at the powerful FBI.”
