Grand Jury Summons Witnesses as Andrew McCabe Investigation Intensifies

Published

on

A grand jury charged with looking into whether former deputy director of FBI Andrew G. McCabe lied to investigators has summoned at least one witness, showing that the investigation is intensifying.

“The presence of the grand jury shows prosecutors are treating the matter seriously, locking in the accounts of witnesses who might later have to testify at a trial,” according to Washington Post. “But such panels are sometimes used only as investigative tools, and it remains unclear if McCabe will ultimately be charged.”

McCabe briefly headed the FBI after James B. Comey was fired last year.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz, concluded in a June report that McCabe lied at least four times – three of them under oath. The report also said that he approved a media disclosure to advance his personal interests.

Attorney General Jefferson B. Sessions fired McCabe in March, only 24 hours before he was set to retire, costing him his full pension.

President Donald J. Trump has often berated McCabe on social media, deservingly so.

“DOJ just issued the McCabe report – which is a total disaster. He LIED! LIED! LIED! McCabe was totally controlled by Comey – McCabe is Comey!! No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!” he said in April.

“The Fake News is beside themselves that McCabe was caught, called out and fired. How many hundreds of thousands of dollars was given to wife’s campaign by Crooked H friend, Terry M, who was also under investigation? How many lies? How many leaks? Comey knew it all, and much more!” he said in March.

It looks as if Trump is a step closer to bing proven correct (again) in his assertions that McCabe leaked to the press and lied about it.

OOPS: Intelligence Community Admits Briefing Over Russian Interference For Trump, Sanders “Overstated”

The experts got it wrong again.

Published

on

Figures within the U.S intelligence community are rushing to walk back reports that the intel community has concluded Russia is waging election interference operations with the express intent of re-electing President Donald Trump and boosting the campaign of Democratic frontrunner.

Reports of the intel community’s purported conclusion on the matter surfaced days ago, when the Washington Post reported that the entity had briefed the campaign of Bernie Sanders on Russian attempts to assist his candidacy.

Now, national security officials have sought to clarify the matter, explaining to CNN that the individual tasked with providing Sanders a brief on the topic “overstated” the intelligence community’s beliefs.

The vaguely defined intelligence community apparently has concluded that Russia is orchestrating purported interference campaigns in the election. But it’s much less clear if Russia is explicitly looking to re-elect Trump as President.

Two intelligence community officials who spoke to CNN described the leading media characterization of intelligence on Russian interference as poor. One said it “lacked nuance,” and another outright described it as “misleading.

A more reasonable interpretation of the intelligence is not that they have a preference, it’s a step short of that. It’s more that they understand the President is someone they can work with, he’s a dealmaker,” one bureaucrat was quoted as saying by CNN.

Reports of wide-ranging Russian interference have proven as wildly unreliable as any widely-reported on story in the American political press in the last four years. After Robert Mueller’s dramatic and seemingly endless probe ended in an outright flop- failing to produce evidence of any “collusion” between the Trump campaign and questionably impactful Russian social media trolling operations, it’s safe to say anything the mainstream media reports on the unending conspiracy should be treated with skepticism.
