Vox: FBI Officials Could Testify Against Trump in Mueller Probe
It’s surreal. I have a new FB page for the Mike Sax NY2 campaign. By the way I’m Mike Sax and please check it out-a like would be very nice!
But all I get all day there is Trump supporters talking as if there were no counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible collusion with Russia and that Trump isn’t being personally investigated for firing Comey.
That’s all just ‘fake news’; which is ironic because fake news is what these guys consume all day. I guess if all you ever did was watch Fox, Alex Jones and listen to Rush all day you too might not realize that Trump is on the road to being impeached.
Trump WILL be impeached I explain to them. The Impeachment Train is on its way-don’t blame me, I’m just the messenger.
Here’s the latest bombshell. Or is it? There are a lot of other bombshells today-Trump’s leaked emails from his conversations with world leaders
H.R. McMaster firing Devin Nunes’ partner in criminal leaks, Ezra Cohen Wattnick
Earlier I wrote about another leaked email about how the Trump WH directed ICE during the Muslim ban to simply ignore and stonewall questions from members of Congress, lawyers, and the media.
And as we speak a new Washington Post piece broke on how Trump is hiring back scores of dirty and corrupt cops.
My point is in calling this new Vox piece the ‘latest bombshell’ there is room for debate. It is a HUGE bombshell but so are these other four bombshells I just mentioned off the top of my head-and those aren’t the only other bombshells.
Suffice to say that this new Vox piece is a huge bombshell but it’s tough to say what the latest huge bombshell is.
In Trump’s wild NYT’s interview a couple of weeks ago he attacked everyone at the DOJ including Andy McCabe which was notable as there’s been little news about him. Until now:
“Shortly after the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller in May, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe told several of the highest-ranking managers of the bureau they should consider themselves possible witnesses in any investigation into whether President Donald Trump engaged in obstruction of justice, according to two senior federal law enforcement officials.”
“McCabe has told colleagues that he too is a potential witness in the probe of whether Trump broke the law by trying to thwart the FBI’s Russia investigation and the investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.”

Now here’s the thing. We can debate which one is truly the LATEST bombshell. What’s undeniable is that this is as big a bombshell as we’ve seen YET-which regarding Trump-Russia is saying something.
According to what two senior federal law enforcement agents told Vox reporter, Murray Waas, this means the case against Trump may be stronger than the conventional wisdom has presumed.
On the obstruction of justice abuse of power side-then there’s the Russian collusion side of the case.
But what this means is that it’s more than just Trump’s word against Comey’s but Trump’s word against the FBI’s.
“Trump and his supporters have long argued that it would be difficult, if not impossible, for the special counsel to bring an obstruction case against Trump. The case would rely on the word of one man versus another, that of the president of the United States versus the FBI director he fired. But this was never the case.”
“In fact, including Comey, at least 10 senior law enforcement officials are expected to testify. And check out the list.”
“FBI agents are experienced witnesses who routinely testify in high-pressure cases. Plus, the FBI itself is a rare public institution that is widely respected and trusted by the American public. The witness list and breadth of possible evidence, including notes Comey and several other senior FBI officials made at the time, could add up to a much stronger obstruction of justice case than Trump ever could have imagined.”
“Among those who McCabe and other law enforcement officials have privately believed are potential witnesses are six of the highest-ranking officials of the agency: They include McCabe himself; Jim Rybicki, Comey’s chief of staff; James Baker, the general counsel of the FBI; David Bowdich, who as the FBI’s associate director is the agency’s third-highest official; and Carl Ghattas, the head of the FBI’s national security division and a legal adviser to McCabe. McCabe was deputy director of the FBI until May, when he became acting director after President Trump fired Comey.”
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and a third senior Justice Department official are believed by law enforcement officials to be crucial fact witnesses in the obstruction probe. Their testimony is likely to support Comey and harm Trump, according to investigators and outside experts.”
Jeff Sessions?! No wonder Trump has had it in for him, as well as Rosenstein.
