Ted Cruz Goes After McCabe, Accuses Him Of Being Leak Behind James Comey And Clinton Foundation Probe

Published

on

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz got into a very fiery exchange with former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, accusing the man of being responsible for the leak of information concerning an investigation into the Clinton Foundation to the media behind the back of then FBI-director James Comey.

Cruz asked McCabe if the disgraced former head of the FBI, Comey, had given him authorization to leak information about the investigation that was going on into the Clinton Foundation to the media.

“I didn’t need James Comey’s authorization,” McCabe responded.

“I didn’t ask if you needed it. I asked did he authorize you to disclose it. That’s a yes or no question,” the Texas Senator pressed. McCabe went on to say that he himself had given authorization for the disclosure.

Cruz continued to press until McCabe admitted that Comey did know about the passing of information to the press.

“Did he authorize you?” the Texas Republican asked. “I didn’t ask Jim Comey,” McCabe responded.

“I’m not asking if you asked,” Cruz said, before pointing to a report in which McCabe insisted he’d told his boss Comey that he’d authorized a disclosure about the Clinton investigation.

“You’re aware your testimony is 180 degrees opposite from Mr. Comey’s sworn testimony to this committee in which he insisted he has never authorized anybody to leak to the press?” Cruz went on to ask.

“Your characterization of a leak is not accurate,” McCabe said.

“We did not open a case because we intended to stage a coup or overthrow the government,” the former FBI director said while delivering his opening statement. “We opened a case to find out how the Russians might be undermining our elections.”

Morgan Phillips, a reporter with Fox News, wrote in his report, “In 2018, the Justice Department inspector general’s report faulted McCabe for leaking information to then-Wall Street Journal reporter Devlin Barrett for an Oct. 30, 2016, story titled “FBI in Internal Feud Over Hillary Clinton Probe.” The story, written just days before the presidential election, focused on the FBI announcing the reopening of the Clinton investigation after finding thousands of her emails on a laptop belonging to former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, who was then married to Clinton aide Huma Abedin.”

Phillips went on to say, “That leak confirmed the existence of the probe, the report said, which then-FBI Director James Comey had up to that point refused to do. The report said McCabe “lacked candor” in a conversation with Comey when he said he had not authorized the disclosure and didn’t know who had done so. The IG also found that he lacked candor when questioned by FBI agents on multiple occasions since that conversation.”

McCabe worked at the FBI for 21 years. He became acting director back in May of 2017 after Comey got booted by President Trump.

Folks, it’s become quite clear that there’s a lot of corruption within the FBI that needs to be dealt with. Plenty of evidence has been uncovered to prove that a deep state was and probably still is at work against the agenda of President Donald Trump.

Something needs to be done about it, and someone needs to be held accountable.

The Boston Marathon bomber will receive a stimulus check. And yes, it will be for the same amount that you will get. That’s not a joke. And he’s not the only criminal who will get it, either. Thanks for everything, Dems! Check this out, via The Daily Wire: Senate Democrats blocked an amendment by Republicans on Saturday that would have stopped taxpayer-funded stimulus checks from going to illegal aliens and incarcerated criminals. Republican Sens.

Donald Trump Goes Scorched Earth on ‘Disloyal & Very Bad Senator’ Lisa Murkowski

Say goodbye, Lisa!!

The GOP doesn’t need centrists in the upper and lower chambers. There are far too many liberals in Congress as it is. The left doesn’t need more votes. It’s time for RINO’s like Murkowski, Romney, Toomey, Cassidy, and Sasse to head on back over to the private sector. Donald Trump will do his best to soon make that a reality. From Washington Examiner: Former President Donald Trump will not be supporting Alaska GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s bid for a fourth term. The former president announced on Saturday that he’ll be traveling to the Last Frontier State to campaign against Murkowski ahead of her 2022 reelection bid, according to Politico. CONTINUED: “I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski. She represents her state badly and her country even worse,” he said. “I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator.” Murkowski, a centrist, has long been willing to split from the former commander in chief, as evidenced by some of her recent votes in the Senate. The Alaskan voted for Trump’s conviction last month on the House’s impeachment article of inciting an insurrection. The former president was ultimately acquitted. https://twitter.com/newsmax/status/1360763406677114886 https://twitter.com/AP/status/1360761311781662720 https://twitter.com/GriffJenkins/status/1360765053436313601 https://twitter.com/DailyMail/status/1360766719141302274 https://twitter.com/LAGOP/status/1360722297754177546?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1360722297754177546%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Frepublican-senators-vote-to-convict-trump-on-incitement-charge
