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.

Horowitz Drops Hint That A ‘Grand Jury’ Trial Could Be Coming
Inspector general Michael Horowitz revealed Monday that some of the information in his IG report consisted of “Grand Jury” material, thus hinting that some kind of grand jury is involved in analyzing either the Hillary Clinton email scandal or the conduct of FBI officials under James Comey.
Undercover Huber came up with this bombshell catch on Twitter, which is already giving patriots hope that the IG report will not be the end of this process, but that more serious investigations and potentially criminal charges could be coming.
HUGE: @JusticeOIG Horowitz says that as part of the review process for his report, "Grand Jury" materials had to be cleared for release to use in his report
No Clinton witness spoke with the MYE Grand Jury
**That suggests Huber does have a Grand Jury empanelled**#IGHearing

In fact, the FBI — Comey’s old Bureau — made the referral for an investigation to the IG’s office, inspector general Michael Horowitz told Congress Monday.
“We received a referral on that from the FBI. We are handling that referral and we will issue a report when the matter is complete, consistent with the law and rules that are, a report that’s consistent and takes those into account,” Horowitz said in his testimony.
Many people forgot that Comey is under investigation for his leaking. Comey has gone on to a book tour and a post teaching “ethical leadership” at William and Mary.
Rudy Calls For Special Prosecutor To Investigate Mueller
President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani is calling for an investigation into Robert Mueller, the special counsel trying to find obstruction of justice against Trump in the Russia case. No Russian collusion has been found, and it has been determined that the FBI spied on the Trump campaign by using phony Russia-themed set-ups.
Giuliani is not taking this lying down.
“We want the Mueller probe to be investigated the way the Trump administration has been investigated,” Giuliani said in an interview on CNN.
“We want to see if we can have the investigation and special counsel declared illegal and unauthorized,” Giuliani said in a separate interview.
Giuliani is clearly going on offense to try to get this thing wrapped up, while Mueller tries to hang on until September 1 to try to find obstruction of justice. Rudy also said that Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen will not flip on Trump as Cohen is being investigated himself for undefined reasons, with his office being raided by the FBI first thing in the morning.
“I checked into this last night. It’s not so. He’s not cooperating. Nor do we care because the president did nothing wrong. We’re very comfortable that if he cooperates there’s nothing he can cooperate about when it comes to President Trump,” Giuliani said.
REPORT: Raj Shah Leaked Fake Story That Sarah Sanders Is On Her Way Out
Deputy White House press secretary Raj Shah, as expected, is making a power play to get his boss Sarah Sanders’ job as Press Secretary, according to multiple inside sources.
Shah, a former Republican National Committee staffer, is known for marginalizing the independent media in press-related matters, instead favoring the corporate mainstream press.
Mike Cernovich reports on Shah’s alleged duplicity:
Raj Shah leaked that story about Sarah Huckabee Sanders leaving the WH to drive a wedge between her and POTUS, so he could hopefully get her spot.
Raj thought by including himself in the article, it'd throw people off the trail.
My WH sources all laughing about this.

Raj Shah is an ardent NeverTrumper who was the subject of a masterful Olivia Nuzzi piece in New York magazine exposing him for calling Trump “deplorable.” The piece included a vociferous defense of Shah from Hope Hicks, the former right-hand day-to-day woman for President Trump.
Dated December 15, 2015, at 12:09 p.m., the email — the subject line was “Dawg” — contains a 2008 CNN transcript in which Trump speaks positively of then-president-elect Barack Obama and describes his decision to make Hillary Clinton secretary of State “a great appointment.” Shah asked for footage of the interview — “Can we see if we’ve got?” — while telling Hemming to be cautious not to use an official RNC email while discussing the topic. “Nothing on GOP mail,” he wrote.
Hemming quickly replied to Shah that he would look into the matter. At 1:04 p.m., he said, “Yep we have it on DVD. Let me know what you want me to do with it.” At 2:21 p.m., he sent him the clip. “Tks man!” Shah replied.
Three days later, on December 18, the seven-year anniversary of the CNN interview, the Jeb Bush campaign released a 15-second ad titled “Happy Anniversary, Donald!” It featured precisely the clip that Shah requested.
