Acting FBI Director Contradicts Own Statement, Admits Agents Were Unhappy With Comey

Published

Andrew McCabe, the new acting FBI Director, gave his first public testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday, giving the media the exact quotes they expected from him.

“I hold Director Comey in the absolute highest regard. I have the highest respect for his considerable abilities and his integrity,” McCabe, who has been accused of having close ties to the Democratic Party, said.

Apparently rejecting the idea supported by the White House that President Donald Trump dismissed the Barack Obama appointee because FBI employees had lost faith in him, McCabe went on to say that Comey enjoyed “broad support within the FBI and still does to this day.”

“The majority, the vast majority of FBI employees enjoyed a deep, positive connection to Director Comey,” he then concluded.

As expected, the media covered this brief exchange during the public statement to exhaustion. But left unaddressed and nearly forgotten was yet another chunk of McCabe’s statement, one that contradicts his very comments regarding the FBI and its employees’ trust in now terminated Comey.

“I think morale’s always been good, but there were folks within our agency that were frustrated with the outcome of the Hillary Clinton case and some of those folks were very vocal about those concerns,” the acting FBI director told the Senate.

As usual, most main news outlets chose to focus on McCabe’s positive comments regarding Comey, not on the fact that McCabe himself admitted that, within the agency, some employees were far from happy with how the Clinton probe had been carried out.

No one expected the acting director would dis his former boss in public, but to simply ignore comments that actually support the White House’s testimonial seems odd. Unless, of course, you have a narrative to maintain. And as the Comey stories simply won’t stop pouring in, it seems as if nobody is willing to be honest about their actual feelings concerning the former FBI director.

Weren’t members of the left desperate to see him gone after the 2016 election? Now all they want is to just keep everyone focusing on the president instead.

Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex

Well this isn’t a good look.

John Weaver, political consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, has been accused of being a sexual predator who targeted young men.

Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.

Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.

Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”

@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”

News of the impending allegations was also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.

The longest Twitter thread on the accusations came from journalist Scott Stedman, who started a Twitter thread that begins as follows: “I don’t want to feed into Don Jr’s nonsense but I do want to tell a story. I followed John Weaver when I started my Twitter account. We exchanged messages, I sent him my stories, chatted about Russia, etc. He wrote a blurb for my book. He offered me some sort of “joint venture” which I wasn’t interested in, so I didn’t respond to his calls.”

Stedman continues: “One day, he DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable.”

What he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power,” Stedman said.

And there could be much more where that came from…

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.

Stay tuned as this story develops.
