Holy crooked top cop, Batman! Top FBI official Andrew McCabe has been "removed" from his post as deputy director is taking “terminal leave,” according to FOX News McCabe. In other words; he is taking a vacation until he reaches his planned retirement.
McCabe’s retirement/removal comes after FBI Director Christopher Wray viewed the memo Sunday on Capitol Hill, reports various news outlets.
The memo alleges that the government – our government - McCabe, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and James Comey – to be precise – abused the right to use surveillance.
According to FOX News, last week Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd urged House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes to not release the memo. “We believe it would be extraordinarily reckless for the Committee to disclose such information publicly without giving the Department and the FBI the opportunity to review the memorandum and to advise the HPSCI of the risk of harm to national security and to ongoing investigations that could come from public release,” wrote Boyd.
On Sunday, Wray said he would need to have “his people to take a look” at the memo when he was asked if there were any inaccuracies. Which is kinda funny seeing the information came from his people in the first place!
Now, McCabe is gone and the House could vote to release the memo. Things that make you go hummmmm…
The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is expected to vote to declassify the memo and release it. President Trump has to approve the release of the memo too. He has five days to approve its declassification and release. Should he sign it tonight? (Then read it from the well of the Congress during the State of the Union? OR, wait to see how the State of the Union goes and release it after?
Strategery! As GW would say.
If it is released – when it is released – will the mainstream media notice?
Will they trot out Lindsey Graham to be the guy who says it never should have been released? Who will be the mainstream media’s tool?
Are we having fun yet?
Democrats will release their own memo, according to FOX News, claiming the Republicans’ document “represents another effort to distract from the Russia probe and seeks to selectively and misleadingly characterize classified information in an effort to protect the president at any cost.”
That is the message the mainstream media will put out but they are late too the party. The alternative media is driving this bus and Conservative are on a joy ride!
Pass the popcorn!
