After dirty cop Andrew McCabe was fired for gross corruption, he came out swinging and accused President Trump for undercutting his credibility.
That is a hoot since President Trump was never involved in his firing. It was the FBI themselves that recommended his firing and if that wasn’t enough, the DOJ IG Michael Horowitz also recommended his firing and finally, Jeff Sessions brought down the hammer and he kicked McCabe to the curb. President Trump wasn’t even in the loop on this one.
But Trey Gowdy knows who is responsible for undercutting McCabe’s credibility. It was McCabe.
“Oh, Andy McCabe has undercut his credibility all by himself. He didn’t need any help doing that, and I find it richly ironic that he is lamenting that those are attacking the FBI when he himself does the exact same thing. It was the FBI who said he made an unauthorized disclosure and then lied about it.”
“That wasn’t President Trump. It wasn’t me. It wasn’t the crazy House Republicans. It was his own fellow FBI agents that said he leaked and then lied about it, so if he’s got credibility issues, he need look no further than himself.”
“Make no mistake. The FBI is who recommended that he be fired. It wasn’t crazy House Republicans and it wasn’t the Trump administration. It was his own fellow bureau agents.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe on Friday, over an unreleased internal report alleging McCabe directed FBI officials to speak to the press about a Clinton Foundation investigation and then misled investigators, according to CNN. President Donald Trump tweeted McCabe’s dismissal was a “great day for democracy.”
The firing drew outrage from Trump administration critics, who felt it was part of an effort to impeach McCabe as a witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. McCabe released a statement that his firing was an attempt to affect his credibility.
Gowdy is absolutely right. If McCabe wanted to keep his credibility, he wouldn’t have lied. And he wouldn’t have been a dirty cop.
