Just when you think it couldn’t get any worse, more facts come out. This time it involves the FBI and Christopher Steele, a former spy British spy that the FBI agreed to pay to investigate Trump a few weeks before the presidential election last fall.
More specifically at the FBI, it involves Comey’s Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who apparently was behind the decision to hire Steele. All of this has been uncovered in an investigation by Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa.
If McCabe’s name sounds familiar, it should. Here’s a little bit from the Washington Examiner:
Grassley noted that McCabe is already under investigation by the FBI‘s inspector general for playing a top role in the Hillary Clinton email investigation even though McCabe’s wife accepted nearly $700,000 in political donations arranged by a close Clinton friend, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, for her run for state senate in Virginia.
“While Mr. McCabe recused himself from public corruption cases in Virginia…he failed to recuse himself from the Clinton email investigation,” Grassley wrote, “despite the appearance of a conflict created by his wife’s campaign accepting $700,000 from a close Clinton associate during the investigation.”
So, McCabe’s wife received $700,000 from Clinton BFF Terry McCauliffe just as McCabe was set to investigate Hillary’s email scandal. Then, days before the election, he agrees, on behalf of the FBI, to have Steele investigate Trump — even though Hillary supporters had hired him earlier to dig up dirt on our current President.
This is unbelievable!
If this were the Republicans, reporters would be losing their minds! With these mountains and mountains of actual evidence on scandal after scandal with the Democrats, the keep searching for any scrap of proof that Trump colluded with Russia!
How could Comey let this go on? He had to have known!
Thank God Grassley is asking tough questions. He just sent a letter to Comey demanding answers. You can see the letter here.
