The leading Republican candidate in Virginia’s GOP Senate primary held a midday press conference in front of the J. Edgar Hoover FBI Building, the national headquarters of the FBI, to call for a special counsel to investigate the bureau’s interference in the 2016 political cycle.
“I think we owe it to the American people and I think we owe it to Virginians,” he said. “To get to the bottom of this scandal.”
“The vast majority of the employees of the Federal Bureau of Investigation are patriotic, hard-working and trying to do their jobs,” he said.
“This whole scandal really started in Virginia,” said Corey A. Stewart, the chairman of the Prince George’s County Board of Supervisors and the one-time state campaign chairman for Donald J. Trump.
Stewart said that former Virginia governor Terence R. McAuliffe, a close political ally of President William J. Clinton and his wife Hillary R. Clinton, gave more than $600,000 to the state senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, the wife of Deputy FBI Director Andrew G. McCabe.
The former first lady was the 2016 Democratic nominee for president against Donald J. Trump.
Watch this video of Corey A. Stewart’s Feb. 7, 2018 press conference in front of the FBI headquarters in Washington:
If Stewart wins the primary, he is expected to face Democrat Sen. Timothy M. Kaine, who ran for vice president on the ticket with the former first lady.
Stewart, an attorney, said he is calling for two things in the wake of the scandalous revelations surrounding the FBI.
“We are calling on Tim Kaine to come clean in the Clinton campaign’s attempt to essentially corrupt the FBI and their involvement using the dossier and paying for it,” he said.
Stewart said his second demand was for a special counsel to investigate the FBI’s involvement in the 2016 political cycle and the payment to the deputy director’s wife’s campaign.
When the FBI was investigating the former first lady’s handling of classified electronic correspondence through her private email server, while she was secretary of state, the deputy director was tainted and should have recused himself from the probe long before he did in October 2016, he said.
Not only did McCabe insert himself in the Clinton email investigation, he is also the man, who signed off on a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to monitor Trump campaign volunteer and American citizen Carter W. Page, he said.
It is now public knowledge the warrants to spy on Page were justified by the so-called “Steele Dossier,” a political opposition research file paid for by the former first lady’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
“Using false information that was paid for by and generated by the Clinton campaign to issue a warrant to spy on a presidential candidate,” Stewart said.
“Those are the facts,” he said.
“It looks very shady,” he said. “It looks like corruption. It looks like corruption that was paid for and authorized by the Clinton campaign–and involves senior officials here at the FBI.”
Madison Cawthorn Once Opposed Electoral College Certification…Now He Says Biden’s Victory was Legitimate
He is waffling and equivocating like a veteran RINO.
Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) has admitted that he never thought there was large-scale voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 presidential election, and he only opposed certifying the electoral college results as a political calculation.
Cawthorn made the admission when he was pressed during an appearance on CNN. Liberals are gloating on Twitter over Cawthorn’s pathetic and embarrassing hypocrisy:
“I think I would say the election was not fraudulent," he finally confesses after getting schooled by Pamela Brown. https://t.co/kuboW49wfW

“I think I would say the election was not fraudulent. The Constitution allowed for us to be able to push back as much as we could, and I did that to the … constitutional limits that I had at my disposal. So now I would say that Joseph R. Biden is our president,” Cawthorn said.
Cawthorn’s CNN appearance, which should be used as an example for Republican lawmakers of how not to deal with the press, can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on Cawthorn’s suspect behavior in the past and warned that he could be another RINO trying to dupe Trump supporters:
Madison Cawthorn, who is the Republican U.S. Rep. candidate for North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, is calling for a “new Republican Party” that pays lip service to issues that are important to leftists.
“The status quo days of the GOP being defined by what we are against, rather than what we are for, are over. We intend to listen, but we also intend to win the argument,” he wrote in his op/ed for the Daily Wire.
Instead of opposing left-wing policies, Cawthorn wants Republicans to capitulate and give concessions to the Left in order to placate to young people in Generation Z who overwhelmingly support leftist politics.
“For the past two decades, however, the Republican Party has marginalized principled reformers in its own ranks and let itself be branded as the “party of no.” On things such as health care, the environment, and other key issues, our leadership has aggressively attacked ideas from the Left but has failed to force consensus around the best ideas from the Right,” Cawthorn wrote.
“Our party, the Grand Old Party, is no longer very grand. But it is very old. Our leaders have failed us and it’s time we stopped putting up with it,” he added.
He wants Republicans to embrace government solutions on issues like healthcare and the environment while echoing woke talking points with regards to race.
“Our party ought not to be ashamed of its heritage nor be afraid of open debate and challenging the “woke” left. On race, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) is right and wise to remind conservatives that unjust racial bias is real and persistent. As Scott, who is black, notes, he knows what it’s like to be pulled over to be stopped by security in the Capitol because of the color of his skin. We’ve come a long way, but Scott is right to remind Republicans that we have a long way to go,” Cawthorn wrote.
He also added a thinly-veiled shot as President Donald Trump, which is par for the course considering he is being published in ‘Never Trump’ icon Ben Shapiro’s blog.
“Let us rise as a New Republican Party. A party that offers real solutions and attacks ideas rather than individuals. A party that meets voters where they are, and instead of belittling them for what they care about, offers a better way,” Cawthorn wrote.
Cawthorn may be a sympathetic figure due to his handicap but he may be a dangerous RINO waiting in the weeds. His constituents in North Carolina must keep him honest if he is going to be an effective conservative lawmaker.
