The evidence is clear and mounting that former Obama deputy attorney general Sally Yates’ right-hand lawyer at the Department of Justice ordered then-deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe to shut down the Bureau’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation.
Insiders believe that McCabe is vulnerable to being “flipped” against other anti-President Donald Trump conspirators like James Comey, as McCabe faces a DOJ investigation stemming from an inspector general’s criminal referral for McCabe’s own conduct in the growing “Obamagate” scandal.
McCabe is squealing against some of the other conspirators, including a then-DOJ official whom insiders believe reported directly to Sally Yates.
Yates’ connection to this massive potential obstruction of justice was highlighted by the writer and researcher J. Christian Adams and promoted by talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh.
Here’s a passage from inspector general Michael Horowitz’s bombshell report:
“McCabe told the OIG that on August 12, 2016, he received a telephone call from PADAG regarding the FBI’s handling of the CF Investigation (the ‘PADAG call’). McCabe said that PADAG expressed concerns about FBI agents taking overt steps in the CF Investigation during the presidential campaign…
“According to McCabe, he pushed back, asking, ‘Are you telling me that I need to shut down a validly predicated investigation?’ McCabe told us that the conversation was ‘very dramatic’ and he never had a similar confrontation like the PADAG call with a high level Department official in his entire FBI career.”

Who was the PADAG at that time?
None other than Matthew Axelrod, Sally Yates’ right-hand man, who left the Department of Justice when Yates was fired for defying President Trump’s executive order on the Muslim travel ban. Axelrod went on to become a partner in white-collar criminal defense at the Washington law firm Linklaters.
