As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

FBI’s McCabe Was Investigating Attorney General Sessions

Gee, I wonder if the FBI ever investigated Eric Holder for his possible perjury before Congress. I think not.

This is what we paranoid conservatives mean by the Deep State.

From ABC News:

Nearly a year before Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired senior FBI official Andrew McCabe for what Sessions called a “lack of candor,” McCabe oversaw a federal criminal investigation into whether Sessions lacked candor when testifying before Congress about contacts with Russian operatives, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.

Democratic lawmakers have repeatedly accused Sessions of misleading them in congressional testimony and called on federal authorities to investigate, but McCabe’s previously-unreported decision to actually put the attorney general in the crosshairs of an FBI probe was an exceptional move.

One source told ABC News that Sessions was not aware of the investigation when he decided to fire McCabe last Friday less than 48 hours before McCabe, a former FBI deputy director, was due to retire from government and obtain a full pension, but an attorney representing Sessions declined to confirm that.

  1. Perhaps this will wake up Sessions and speed up his work? I think he is doing a lot quietly, but he needs to do more and faster — such as start deporting all illegals. It’s telling that Trump complains about Sessions but does’t replace him — that suggests Trump is not too unhappy with whatever it is that he knows Sessions is doing.

  2. Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that they aren’t out to get you.

    I read that somewhere years ago and it does seem appropriate here. Nothing I can imagine about the Obama deep state is weirder than the truth about i.t

  3. He can deny it, but the odds are he knew he was under investigation and recused himself from the Russia Russia, um, matter for that reason.

    The twists and turns of the goings on in DC and the intermarriages or close confidants of all the principles is sounding more and more like a crazy spy/government intrigue novel.
    So far, the only collusion seems to be among the government employees who are intent to upend the last election because they don’t like the way it turned out. The Russia Russia collusion seems to be headed by Obama and Clinton during their terms as President and Sec of State, not during the election.

    Out here in fly-over country we’re now hoping for a simple sex scandal or some high ranking embezzlement – that we understand.
