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.
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
