We’re only now heading into the second month of 2018, and the liberal media has already been caught propagating one of their biggest fake news stories in quite some time.
When FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was asked to leave the Bureau this week, the media was certain that we were looking at Comey Firing Part II. Here goes the renegade president again, firing everyone who might have a chance of connecting his campaign to Russian government officials. Trump, the Obstructer. Hide your children!
As it turns out, though, their boy McCabe – praised all around the liberal media circus as a by-the-book, unblemished veteran of the FBI – might just be the biased creep that conservatives have been warning the country about for more than a year. The Washington Post broke the story on Tuesday, reporting that McCabe has been under investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general for months.
According to their story, there are looming questions about why a batch of Hillary Clinton’s emails – discovered on Anthony Weiner’s laptop in September 2016 – sat unattended to for weeks under McCabe’s supervision. Was he trying to shield the Democratic nominee from criminal scrutiny? Was this the quid pro quo expected in return for the $500,000 in super PAC money his wife received from a Clinton-allied source? These are the questions Inspector General Michael Horowitz wants answered, and they are the unresolved issues that likely cost McCabe his job this week.
“A key question of the internal investigation is whether McCabe or anyone else at the FBI wanted to avoid taking action on the laptop findings until after the Nov. 8 election,” the Post reported. “A major line of inquiry for the inspector general has been trying to determine who at the FBI and the Justice Department knew about the Clinton emails on the Weiner laptop, and when they learned about them. McCabe is a central figure in those inquiries.”
Adding to the darkness shrouding McCabe’s intentions? “At the same time, the FBI was facing a new set of questions, this time about McCabe’s role in a stalled probe into the Clinton Foundation,” the Post reported. “Some within the FBI felt McCabe had repeatedly moved to hamstring that probe and were suspicious of his motives for doing so, according to people familiar with the matter.”
The Democrats’ Big Lies are falling apart, and the media’s efforts to cover for them are beginning to crumble as well. It will not be long, at this rate, before major newspapers like the Washington Post and the New York Times will have to concede to their readers that there was, indeed, a massive conspiracy at the highest levels of law enforcement and government. But they didn’t have anything to do with Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
