Rush: It Appears Sally Yates Ordered McCabe To Shut Down The Clinton Foundation Case

Published

on

Rush Limbaugh said Thursday that it appears former Obama deputy attorney general Sally Yates was the one who ordered former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe to shut down the investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Inspector general Michael Horowitz wrote a criminal referral against McCabe, which was reported Thursday. Horowitz’s report also detailed a DOJ official (possibly Yates) who  pressured McCabe to shut down the Hillary email probe.

Here’s an excerpt from the IG report: “McCabe told the OIG that on August 12, 2016, he received a telephone call from PADAG [Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General] regarding the FBI’s handling of the CF Investigation (the “PADAG call”).

Limbaugh said that the PADAG at that time was an aide to Sally Yates, who became a heroine to the Resistance for defying President Donald Trump before her exit.

The Washington Post reported: Of particular concern was that McCabe effectively authorized the FBI to confirm an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation, by revealing a phone call in which he pushed back against a Justice Department official who warned that the bureau should not be taking overt steps in the case close to an election. McCabe asked the official: “Are you telling me that I need to shut down a validly predicated investigation?” “Of particular concern was that McCabe effectively authorized the FBI to confirm an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation, by revealing a phone call in which he pushed back against a Justice Department official who warned that the bureau should not be taking overt steps in the case close to an election.
