McCabe claims Congress Knew

Timothy Birdnow

Andrew McCabe, disgraced former acting director of the FIB, er, FBI, says he briefed a Congressional delegation about what his investigation of Donald Trump and they made no objections.

From Politico:

Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said on Tuesday that no members of the "Gang of Eight" congressional leaders objected when he informed them in May 2017 that the FBI had opened a counterintelligence investigation into President Donald Trump over his ties to Russia.

McCabe, who was serving then as acting FBI director after Trump fired Director James Comey, said on NBC’s "Today" show that no one in the briefing objected to the bureau’s inquiry of whether Trump was being used as a Russian asset — "not on legal grounds, constitutional grounds or based on the facts.”

The purpose of the briefing with the Democratic and Republican leaders of the House and Senate and the chairmen and ranking members of the House and Senate intelligence committees "was to let our congressional leadership know exactly what we’d been doing” after Comey’s firing, McCabe said.

David Popp, a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, said in a statement Tuesday, "We do not comment on or discuss the Leader’s work as it relates to the Gang of 8 and other classified issues.”

I wouldn't be at all surprised; the GOP leadership in both houses of Congress have been less than helpful to President Trump, and in fact neither McConnell nor Ryan endorsed Trump until just days before the election. The Swamp didn't want Trump, an outsider who promised reform, and there would be every reason why the "Gang of Eight" would NOT object to the FBI running a silent coup on the man.

Politico no doubt thinks this somehow exonerates McCabe, but in fact it merely indicts our political establishment.
