Will Andy McCabe be Fired Today?
He’s the number two behind Christopher Wrary at the FBI. His great sin was his wife received donations from Terry McAuliffe in 2016. But by the same token, Comey donated to both of Obama’s Presidential opponents in 2008 and 2012 respectively.
By this logic Comey should never have been allowed to handle the FBI investigation-as he was biased against Clinton-or as the GOP is now putting it regarding McCabe he had ‘the appearance of bias.’
What is happening with McCabe however is very worrisome. If this isn’t a constitutional crisis yet it’s where we’re going.
Last night the GOP grilled McCabe behind closed doors and claimed that what he told them shows that he ‘favored Clinton.’
One thing they claimed was: ‘he was very friendly to Democrats’ during the hearing. You mean he should have acted unfriendly towards Democratic members of Congress during a hearing?
Anyway don’t be surprised if McCabe is fired today. Since late last week GOPers in Congress have been intimating he may be, could be, should be fired.
“Throughout the week, all signs have pointed to Donald Trump gearing up to fire Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe tomorrow. What has he done wrong? Nothing. He’s simply the victim of a phony conspiracy falsely tying him to Hillary Clinton, setting him up as the target of Trump’s rage. Trump’s allies in Congress hauled McCabe in for questioning today to try to finish him off. However, in a last minute surprise, McCabe said something during his testimony that may have just saved his job.”
“The Republicans in Congress were hoping to pressure McCabe into saying something he might regret today, or saying something they could take out of context, so Trump would have some semblance of justification for firing him. Instead, things went in a different direction entirely. McCabe testified to Congress today that former FBI Director James Comey told him about Trump’s demand for personal loyalty, according to a CNN report (link). Why does this suddenly matter with regard to McCabe’s job security?”
Because now firing McCabe would suggest obstruction of justice as this makes McCabe a corroborating witness for Comey’s account in the memos.
But if we aren’t in a constitutional crisis yet we are on the road.
We need a Democratic Congress. I’m Mike Sax, a Democratic Congressional candidate here in NY2.
P.S. I’m Mike Sax, I’m running for Congress in the NY 2nd District and I’m a Hillary Clinton Democrat.
Meeting her recently was one of the biggest honors in my life to stand next to such a fine public servant and trailblazer. She seemed to like our Impeachment Train campaign t shirts too!
Think of the shirt as a one time investment in restoring legitimacy to this country.
And please donate so we can compete with Peter King’s $4 million. I know no lobbyists or millionaires like Peter King. Small donations are the engine of the Mike Sax NY2 campaign. Together we can do it. Because we must.
