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.

Mike Pompeo Said to be Considering Senate Run, Secretary of State Replacement Sought

Pompeo may be vacating his position as Secretary of State.

Published

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo may be preparing to resign his position to run for an open U.S Senate seat in Kansas, with Trump administration figures already researching possibilities for a potential replacement.

Trump administration officials are said to be eyeing current National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien in the event of a State Department vacancy. O’Brien has clicked with Trump far more cohesively than previous foreign policy advisors, such as fish-out-of-water neocon John Bolton and career military officer H.R McMaster.

Pompeo has always been a lukewarm executor of President Trump’s America First foreign policy platform, at times aligning with the President, yet also bowing to the conventional globalist wisdom prevalent throughout the federal department. The cabinet member began his service in the administration as Director of the CIA, an unaccountable secret agency known for extralegal attempts to interfere in American politics against the Trump campaign.

It appears Pompeo is being nudged to run for the Kansas Senate seat as a spoiler by the Republican establishment with the hopes of dashing former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s campaign. Kobach is a staunch immigration patriot who currently holds a wide lead in statewide polling, but it appears Pompeo would stand a solid chance of besting him in a Republican primary.

Pompeo’s switch from Secretary of State to Senatorial candidate doesn’t come across as the most glaring promotion. It’s possible that Mitch McConnell and bigwig Republican Senators are desperate enough to block Kris Kobach’s Senate bid that they’d manage to recruit Pompeo into taking a demotion for the cause.

He’s generally dismissed questions pertaining to a potential Kansas Senate bid, but the creation of a new personal Twitter account has made some believe he’s gearing up for a political campaign.

Pompeo’s departure could open up avenues to push the State Department in an America First direction, even if it damages Kobach’s Senate prospects. Pompeo has consistently agitated for military intervention against the Syrian government and generally fought for the United States to work for Saudi Arabian interests.
