Democrats are used to fawning interviews from members of the media.
Journalists act like a cheering section instead of inquisitors.
So this Democrat was completely unprepared for when a Fox News host unloaded with both barrels about a massive FBI scandal.
California Democrat Eric Swalwell appeared on Fox News and host Harris Faulkner had some tough questions.
Faulkner grilled Swalwell about former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe lying to investigators and the Democrats giving him a free pass.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Faulkner continued the interview by asking Swalwell if he agrees with former deputy AG Andrew McCabe that he was wrongfully terminated from his post.
“What is tricky about Andrew McCabe’s firing is that the President of the United States was involved from what he said when they met in private about Andrew McCabe’s wife to what he would tweet out to the public,” Swalwell argued. “So whether that influenced how Mr. McCabe was viewed by the inspector general, I don’t know. But I don’t like that the president did that either.”
“Wow. That’s an interesting place you just went. Because I would have guessed that the facts prove that what’s tricky about Andrew McCabe is that he lied to investigators and that’s a crime,” Faulkner asserted.
“You can’t lie,” Swalwell conceded.”
When McCabe was first fired, he became an instant celebrity to the “resistance.”
A GoFundMe set up by him raised nearly a half million dollars to pay his legal fees.
But when it came out that the Department of Justice Inspector General – who was appointed by Barack Obama – found that McCabe lied on multiple occasions to investigators, he quickly faded from public view.
As more facts about the FBI’s misconduct emerge, it is now clear that the FBI leadership – and not Trump or his associates – are the ones who belong under investigations.
