Andy McCabe, one of the schemers behind the infamous Trump Russia hoax, has a lot of inconsistencies and fabulist comments to explain.
The Conservative Treehouse noted that his stories about when he talked to the President after the Comey firing and initiated the Russia probe, have some discrepancies. See here: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/02/15/mccabes-recent-statements-contradict-mccabes-prior-testimony/
Bad as that is, The Daily Mail reports that McCabe claims Jeff Sessions made some outrageous comments that don’t jibe with his previous behavior in the Senate. In fact, they seem like made up fables. Here’s the story:
Jeff Sessions ranted the FBI was ‘better off when you only hired Irishmen’ because ‘they were drunks, but could be trusted,’ new Andrew McCabe book claims.
He paints former Attorney General Sessions as unprofessional – someone who did not read intelligence reports and confused facts with news reports.
McCabe makes the explosive claims about Trump and his staff in an upcoming new tell-all book, The Threat.
In excerpts from the book obtained by the Washington Post, McCabe claims Sessions blamed migrants for social problems and held racist sentiments.
Sessions allegedly stereotyped Irishmen as honest drunks when comparing the FBI’s former workforce to their modern counterparts: ‘They could be trusted. Not like all those new people with nose rings and tattoos — who knows what they’re doing?’
Sessions was fired by Trump the day after the mid-term elections in November last year.
McCabe doubled-down on the allegations against the Trump Administration in a recent ’60 Minutes’ interview on CBS, telling the broadcaster that lawyers were asked to consider secretly recording the President in the spring of 2017.
“McCabe … says no, it came up more than once and it was so serious that he took it to the lawyers at the FBI to discuss it,” CBS anchor Scott Pelley said, describing his interview with McCabe.
Justice Department officials said at the time the remark was a joke and meant sarcastically.
McCabe also claims the President vented to him after firing James Comey that the suddenly former FBI chief was allowed to fly home from California at government expense.
Comey was giving a speech in Los Angeles when people in his audience told him cable news channels were announcing that he had been terminated.
The Comey deputy who took over the law enforcement agency writes that the vindictive President thought Comey should pay for his own airline ticket back to Washington to clear out his desk.
Instead the ousted lawman hopped on the same FBI jet he had used to fly west.
“I told him that bureau lawyers had assured me there was no legal issue with Comey coming home on the plane. I decided that he should do so,” McCabe writes, describing a phone call the following day.
“The President flew off the handle,” McCabe continues, quoting Trump: “That’s not right! I don’t approve of that! That’s wrong!”
“The President said, I want you to look into that!” he adds. “I thought to myself: What am I going to look into? I just told you I made that decision.”
The phone call started, McCabe recalls, with Trump calling him on an unsecure, unclassified line and introducing himself by an unfamiliar nickname.
“The voice on the other end said, ‘It’s Don Trump calling’,” he writes.
“I said, ‘Hello, Mr. President, how are you?’ Apart from my surprise that he was calling at all, I was surprised that he referred to himself as Don.”
McCabe also writes in his book that Justice Department officials at one point mulled a plan to invoke the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
They would have allowed Trump’s adversaries in his own administration to remove him from office with a majority vote of his Cabinet and the backing of Vide President Mike Pence.
McCabe, whose book is slated for a Feb. 19 release, may have a personal reason to go after the president: He recounts verbal slashing Trump offered on the expense of his wife Jill, who mounted a failed 2015 run for a state senate seat in Virginia.
The president asked after Jill, he writes, asking in a sneering tone: “Yeah, that must’ve been really tough. To lose. To be a loser.”
A statewide political action committee called Common Good VA contributed $467,000 to her campaign. Hillary Clinton headlined a fundraiser for the group shortly beforehand, raising $500,000 for it.
The PAC was run at the time by Terry McAuliffe, then the governor of Virginia. McAuliffe is a longtime Bill Clinton fundraiser and former Democratic National Committee chairman.
Jill McCabe’s campaign also received more than $207,000 from the Democratic Party of Virginia, over which McAuliffe exerted significant control.
Common Good VA was the largest single donor to the McCabe campaign.
Trump dismissed McCabe Thursday on Twitter, referring to his firing.
“Disgraced FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe pretends to be a ‘poor little Angel’ when in fact he was a big part of the Crooked Hillary Scandal & the Russia Hoax – a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey,'” Trump wrote.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement read on MSNBC that McCabe ‘was fired in total disgrace from the FBI because he lied to investigators on multiple occasions, including under oath.’
“His selfish and destructive agenda drove him to open a completely baseless investigation into the President. His actions were so shameful that he was referred to federal prosecutors. Andrew McCabe has no credibility and is an embarrassment to the men and women of the FBI and our great country.”
Does any of this ring true?
No. The man is delusional, as well as being a traitor.
