Report: Andrew McCabe Lied Under Oath to Congress

The momentum against the FBI continues to build this week as the probability of rolling heads has become an inevitability.

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe sat through on Tuesday what turned out to be a nearly eight-hour grilling by the House Intelligence Committee — under oath.

And though there were no leaks from the actual testimony, plenty of reports have surfaced that, if true, actually put McCabe in an even more precarious predicament than previously thought, if that’s possible.

According to those reports, McCabe denied knowing anything about the dubious Trump dossier and its origination at the hands of the DNC.

The problem with that is that McCabe’s literal signature is all over documents acknowledging its existence.

So, including his likely collusion in the attempt prevent Trump’s election, he’s now looking at a possible prosecution for perjury.

Get ready, folks.

Here’s more from Redstate…

Yesterday, deputy FBI director Andrew (you can call him Andy if you’re hanging out in his office handicapping presidential races) McCabe testified for about seven-and-a-half hours before the House Intelligence Committee. The meeting was notable for a couple of things. First, there were no leaks while he was testifying. This is in stark contrast to Adam Schiff’s antics while Donald Trump, Jr., testified that produced nearly a running commentary to CNN. Second, McCabe was protected by the Democrats but he didn’t tell them anything they wanted to hear.

Sources close to the investigation say that McCabe was a “friendly witness” to the Democrats in the room, who are said to have pressed the deputy director, without success, to help them build a case against President Trump for obstruction of justice in the Russia-collusion probe. “If he could have, he would have,” said one participant in the questioning.

Investigators say McCabe recounted to the panel how hard the FBI had worked to verify the contents of the anti-Trump “dossier” and stood by its credibility. But when pressed to identify what in the salacious document the bureau had actually corroborated, the sources said, McCabe cited only the fact that Trump campaign adviser Carter Page had traveled to Moscow. Beyond that, investigators said, McCabe could not even say that the bureau had verified the dossier’s allegations about the specific meetings Page supposedly held in Moscow.

If this is correct, then contrary to the popular anti-Trump meme that “the dossier has been validated,” apparently nothing in the dossier has been verified by anyone other than Carter Page’s documented trips to Russia.

And, of course, McCabe lied. This goes without saying.

The sources said that when asked when he learned that the dossier had been funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, McCabe claimed he could not recall – despite the reported existence of documents with McCabe’s own signature on them establishing his knowledge of the dossier’s financing and provenance.
