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.
