The corruption at the FBI was worse than anyone could have imagined.
A new bombshell makes it clear the Deep State had their eyes on more than just Donald Trump.
One anti-Trump agent had a secret plan to put Jeff Sessions behind bars.
When Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe, there was one thing he did not know.
McCabe had launched a criminal investigation into Sessions about his testimony before Congress when he was asked about meeting with Russian officials as part of the Trump campaign.
ABC News reports:
“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.”
McCabe – whose wife ran for office as a Democrat and whose campaign account was stuffed with hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions from a key Clinton ally – began the probe a the request Democratic Senators Patrick Leahy and Al Frnaken.
But Sessions was interview by the special counsel and cleared.
ABC also reports:
“Two months ago, Sessions was interviewed by Mueller’s team, and the federal inquiry related to his candor during his confirmation process has since been shuttered, according to a lawyer representing Sessions.
“The Special Counsel’s office has informed me that after interviewing the attorney general and conducting additional investigation, the attorney general is not under investigation for false statements or perjury in his confirmation hearing testimony and related written submissions to Congress,” attorney Chuck Cooper told ABC News on Wednesday.
According to the sources, McCabe authorized the criminal inquiry after a top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, and then-Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., wrote a letter in March 2017 to the FBI urging agents to investigate “all contacts” Sessions may have had with Russians, and “whether any laws were broken in the course of those contacts or in any subsequent discussion of whether they occurred.”
This bombshell makes it clear the Trump administration was right to fire James Comey and McCabe.
Under Comey and McCabe, the FBI succumbed to partisan politics and became the political hit squad for the Democrat Party.
