LIVE Stream: Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe Testifies Before Senate instead Comey (5-11-17) May 11, 2017.
US Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr said in a statement on Wednesday that Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Acting Director Andrew McCabe is set to testify before the Committee in a hearing set for Thursday.
Former FBI Director James Comey has been replaced in what was a pre-scheduled testimony in an open session of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.
Scheduled for May 11, 2017 FBI Director James Comey has been replaced in what was a pre-scheduled testimony in an open session of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.
The following is updated information on the firing of James Comey:
? President Trump had been talking openly about firing James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director, for at least a week, according to people close to the president.
? Days before he was fired, Mr. Comey asked for a significant increase in resources for the inquiry into Russia’s interference in the presidential election, according to four congressional officials.
? Andrew G. McCabe, the acting director of the F.B.I., will testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The hearing is expected to begin at 10 a.m.
If you are not familiar with Andrew McCabe, here is a little background:
A Duke University graduate with a law degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Mr. McCabe is considered a skilled briefer. He is something of wunderkind at the F.B.I., rising quickly in the organization to become deputy director in early 2016. But he is not universally loved among agents.
Some inside the F.B.I. believe he did not work in the field long enough and rose too quickly to appreciate the concerns of working-level agents.
Also scheduled to testify are Mike Pompeo, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency; Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence; Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency; and others.
This is actually a planned day of annual testimony about the top threats facing the United States.
Here is information that I personally think you need to know at this time concerning Andrew McCabe. He is every bit as bad as James Comey.
Following President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday, Andrew McCabe, the deputy director, will temporarily lead the bureau. The president dismissed Comey because of his handling of the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, according to a memorandum by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, but McCabe is also under scrutiny for his involvement in the Clinton emails matter.
The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General announced in January that in response to requests from members of Congress, organizations and the public, it was opening a review of the FBI’s handling of the Clinton matter. Among the aspects that the office said it would review were “allegations that the FBI deputy director should have been recused from participating in certain investigative matters.”
I have the utmost respect for Senator Charles Grassley, who leads the Judicial Committee. He said the following concerning McCabe:
Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, wrote a letter to Comey on March 28 expressing concerns about McCabe’s involvement in the Clinton emails matter, given the donations that his wife received. “These circumstances undermine public confidence in the FBI’s impartiality,” Grassley wrote.
“FBI’s senior leadership should never have allowed that appearance of a conflict to undermine the bureau’s important work…. If Mr. McCabe failed to avoid the appearance of a partisan conflict of interest in favor of Mrs. Clinton during the presidential election, then any participation in this inquiry creates the exact same appearance of a partisan conflict of interest against Mr. Trump,” Grassley said.
McCabe is another left over Clinton trainwreck, who aided and abetted Clinton in her dirty climb to the top. But, alas, she has fallen, and those by her side will also fall. What a thrill to finally see this happening. Thank you, President Trump, for firing these traitors starting with James Comey
