More draining of the swamp neede

Dana Mathewson

Well, well. Interim FBI Director -- or should I say Acting FBI Director -- Andrew McCabe is the husband of

"Jill McCabe, who took $467,500 from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s political action committee during her run for Virginia state Senate.

"She also received $207,788 from the Virginia Democratic Party, which is heavily influenced by Clinton loyalist McAuliffe.

"The funds began flowing to Jill McCabe two months after the FBI launched its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server in July 2015."

End quote.

In other words, she has "a cozy relationship to Hillary Clinton operatives."

The New York Post article quotes former top FBI official James Kallstrom, who goes on to say:

The funds began flowing to Jill McCabe two months after the FBI launched its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server in July 2015.

At that time, Andrew McCabe was promoted from running the bureau’s Washington field office to the No. 3 position at the FBI. She [Hillary] eventually lost to her GOP opponent.

"And Comey lets all this pass. He doesn’t do a thing about it. It’s an outrage,” Kallstrom said. "Today’s he’s the acting director and I hope in two or three days he’s no longer the acting director because he has no judgment. And it just shows that Comey has no common sense.”

Kallstrom also said Trump was right in dumping the former director.

"He had to go. And I am glad he went. And I think the president did exactly what he should do,” Kallstrom said.

He said Comey did a number of "foolish things,” but the worst was announcing last July that while Hillary Clinton was "extremely careless” in her handling of classified information, she did not intend to violate the law and shouldn’t be charged criminally.

There's a lot more in the article.


Yes, I saw some of this article. All I can say is that a lot of other people will have to rattle Trump's cage to do more of the right and smart thing. He can't take his voters for granted and get reelected - or accomplish that much in this four year term.

As Darrell Royal said about his U. of Texas team at a Cotton Bowl game decades ago, when asked if he would change his team's offense because of his opponent, Notre Dame: You dance with who brung ya" (we'll use the same methods that got us to this championship game).

"Stick with me baby, I'm the guy that you came in with" - from the song "Luck Be a Lady" in the musical "Guys and Dolls." Dana and maybe Fay already knew the source of this line.


Yep. Sticking with the football analogy, you'll remember that "conventional wisdom" used to say that in the Super Bowl you have to start by establishing the ground game. You might also remember that when the Steelers would face off against the Cowboys, Terry Bradshaw would start by throwing the football, multiple times -- and ending up skunking the Cowboys.
