Comey: I Could Testify Against Andrew McCabe

James Comey is in such a rush to ingratiate himself to the world and prove he’s a really great guy, after all, that he is ‘potentially’ willing to testify in a case against his former FBI Deputy Andy McCabe.

This is a pretty big deal.

When political cronies start throwing each other under the bus, that’s when things really start getting interesting.

Now, there still remains the question whether the Inspector General’s recent report will produce any criminal charges against McCabe in the first place.

But one safe bet is that if the US Attorney’s office doesn’t pursue them, Congress might pursue contempt. And this has its own ramifications.

Either way, the rats are jumping ship and eating their own.

Here’s more from CNN…

Former FBI Director James Comey said in a wide-ranging CNN interview Thursday that he could potentially be a witness against the FBI’s former number two.

His commentson CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper” came after CNN reported that the Justice Department’s inspector general referred its findings on Andrew McCabe, the former FBI deputy director, to the US attorney’s office in Washington for possible criminal charges associated with lying to internal investigators.
Asked if he could end up being a witness, Comey said, “Potentially.”
“Sure, given that the IG’s report reflects interactions that Andy McCabe had with me and other senior executives, I could well be a witness,” Comey said.
