The saga over the FBI’s collusion with the Hillary campaign to ensure she, not Donald Trump, would prevail in the presidential election continues to dominate news on the Hill.
Disgraced former lead agent Peter Strzok is now known to have heavily edited James Comey’s memo to essentially move Hillary’s email server crimes below the threshold required for federal indictment.
And now the full transcript of his text messages to his mistress highly suggests that the collusion went all the way to the top.
In the most infamous text, Strzok referred to an ‘insurance policy’ against Trump’s election discussed in ‘Andy’s office’, which most believe was a reference to FBI Deputy Chief Andrew McCabe.
Now Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee, including Trey Gowdy, are openly speculating whether McCabe is “still an employee of the FBI” this time next week.
The dominoes are starting to fall.
Here’s more from Hotair…
McCabe has spent the past year popping up in the news for all the wrong reasons. In February 2016 he was promoted to deputy director and assumed oversight of the Hillary Emailgate investigation — after his wife had received nearly $700,000 from Democratic groups for a failed run for Virginia state senate. This past February he got caught talking to then-chief of staff Reince Priebus about an allegedly bogus Russiagate story in the NYT, a no-no since DOJ investigations are supposed to be independent of politics. His latest news cameo was (apparently) in the infamous text in August 2016 from FBI agent Peter Strzok to Lisa Page: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he [i.e. Trump] gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.” Who’s “Andy”? Almost certainly it’s Andrew McCabe.
What was the “insurance policy” against Trump’s presidency that was discussed in McCabe’s office? McCabe is scheduled to testify about it before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday.
