New information on the McCabe firing has come out and now there are two witnesses who contradict McCabe’s story that he was authorized to release non-public information and that James Comey was aware of it.
As it turns out McCabe’s own employee, Lisa page in her testimony to the DOJ IG Michael Horowitz, Page directly contradicted the testimony given by McCabe. He was fired on three counts and there will be more to come out I’m sure. McCabe is a dirty cop and an important player of the Deep State.
The three charges against him include lying under oath, lying while not under oath and the unauthorized release of non-public information.
Fox News reported:
The violations initially were uncovered by the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General and confirmed by the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility. They included lack of candor under oath, lack of candor when not under oath, and the improper disclosure of non-public information to the media about the FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
The violations stemmed from McCabe’s response to an October 2016 Wall Street Journal report about sizeable campaign donations from Democrats to McCabe’s wife, Jill, during her campaign for the Virginia State Senate. The investigation found that McCabe instructed FBI lawyer Lisa Page and FBI public affairs chief Michael Kortan to work with the Journal’s reporter to set the record straight.
The source said Page’s statements to investigators were “critical” because they directly contradicted her boss, McCabe.
According to the source, McCabe’s lack of candor about the contact with the Journal reporter led to his firing. The source added that Page’s testimony about the matter contradicted McCabe’s. Then-FBI Director James Comey claimed he never authorized the leak to the Journal.
Comey held a briefing on October 31st, 2016 at which time he explained that unauthorized leaks were hurting the FBI. In his questioning, he said that McCabe denied being responsible for the leak.
That goes against everything McCabe said when he was questioned multiple times. We don’t know exactly what Lisa page testified to but we know it also contradicted McCabe.
McCabe’s lawyer denies everything:
“Mr. McCabe’s interaction with the Wall Street Journal – which by FBI rule and practice he was fully authorized to do – was not done in secret: it took place over the course of several days and others knew of it, including Director Comey. Now, after a failure to justify the process by which Mr. McCabe was terminated with 26 hours to his retirement after more than 21 years of service, it appears that members of the House of Representatives are attempting to selectively and unfairly leak pieces of information from a report that is not public.
We understand that these members are attempting to create a false narrative that pits former Director Comey against Mr. McCabe. We deeply regret being compelled to respond to this selective leaking with any comment at all. Nevertheless, one thing is clear: Mr. McCabe never misled Director Comey.”
Normally when two liars contradict each other, it’s a tough choice to determine who is telling the truth. But in this case, there is a second witness and it’s almost 100% certain in my mind that McCabe is the liar this time.
Lock him up.
