Developing: McCabe Cracks, Throws Comey Under Bus, Accuses of Perjury

Disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired Friday night, two days prior to his official retirement with full benefits, by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on recommendations from both the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility and the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General.

And it looks like he might not want to go down alone.

McCabe was fired for allegedly lying to federal investigators and for making alleged unauthorized disclosures to the media about sensitive investigations. Basically, he is alleged to have “lacked candor” with investigators about making anonymous leaks to a Wall Street Journal reporter about the status of the Clinton Foundation investigation in 2016.

In what could only be described as an already prepared statement, McCabe released a letter shortly after his termination that attempted to give his side of the story and asserted that he had been “singled out” by a vindictive President Donald Trump for removal, a laughable claim given the recommendations of the Obama-era-initiated inspector general’s investigation led by the Obama-appointed IG and career bureaucrats at the FBI’s OPR.

But there was something else in McCabe’s statement that caught the eye of law professor Jonathan Turley, who described in The Hill how McCabe appeared to have contradicted his former boss, former FBI Director James Comey, and essentially accused him of committing perjury.

In dispute of the allegations of unauthorized leaks to the media, McCabe wrote, “I chose to share with a reporter through my public affairs officer and a legal counselor. As deputy director, I was one of only a few people who had the authority to do that. It was not a secret, it took place over several days, and others, including the director, were aware of the interaction with the reporter.”

Turley pointed out that since Comey was the director at that time, McCabe’s claim that his leaks were authorized — or at least done with the knowledge of — his boss would run completely counter to testimony delivered under oath by Comey in May 2017 during a congressional hearing.

In that hearing, Comey was asked directly by Sen. Chuck Grassley if he himself had “ever been an anonymous source in news reports about matters relating to the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation” or if he had “ever authorized someone else at the FBI to be an anonymous source in news reports about the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation,” to which Comey had replied without hesitation “Never” and “No.”

Thus, we now know that either Comey or McCabe has lied about the leaks to The Wall Street Journal reporter. If Comey told Congress the truth that he never authorized any leaks to the media, then McCabe just lied and threw Comey under the bus to save his own skin.

Likewise, if McCabe is telling the truth that he had permission to leak information to the reporter, then that means Comey lied under oath to Congress when he denied ever authorizing such leaks.

If it turns out that McCabe just lied, it represents little more than cornered rats biting each other as they attempt to flee a sinking ship, as he was already fired for lying and faces potential prosecution for such. What is one more charge in that case?

But if Comey is the one who lied, he stands to suffer more than McCabe from the exposure, as he is about to launch a lucrative book tour to promote his memoir, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership.”

Oh, the irony.

Furthermore, Comey is already facing scrutiny over how he handled the Clinton investigation as well as memos he allegedly wrote about his interactions with Trump and kept after he was fired, some of which were leaked to a friend in the media and which may contain classified information.

On top of that, Turley noted that if it were McCabe who lied and he somehow avoids prosecution for the crime, then he just inadvertently opened the door for President Donald Trump to issue a full pardon for former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who was forced by special counsel Robert Mueller to plead guilty to lying to investigators, a crime it appears McCabe just committed.

One of these two individuals — Comey or McCabe — was lying about leaks to the media, as they both can’t be telling contradictory truth about the same incident in question.

We will know for sure which is the case when the OIG report is released to the public and the full extent of alleged partisan misconduct of FBI leadership is revealed.

What do you think of these contradictory statements from Comey and McCabe about leaks to the media? Scroll down to comment below!

EXCLUSIVE–California Sanctuary City Laws Likely Responsible for 5K Crimes by Released Criminal Illegal Aliens

Illegal Crime

The state of California and the sanctuary city laws that make it a safe-haven for criminal illegal aliens is likely responsible for at least 5,000 crimes that were committed by criminal illegal aliens released by local authorities rather than being handed over to federal immigration officials.

According to data conducted for Breitbart News by the Center for Immigration Studies’ Director of Policy Jessica Vaughan, the state of California — which refuses to hand over criminal illegal aliens to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency — makes up about half of all non-cooperation with federal immigration officials in the U.S.

For example, roughly 50 percent of the ICE detainers — the hold that federal immigration officials place on a criminal illegal alien — ignored by local sanctuary city authorities across the U.S. occurred in California.

In mid-2017, ICE Director Thomas Homan revealed that about 10,000 criminal illegal aliens had been released by sanctuary cities across the U.S. and went on to commit more crimes. This figure, though, could be even higher for the year of 2017.

Based on this data, Vaughan told Breitbart News that it is “reasonable to assume” that about half of those crimes committed by released criminal illegal aliens occurred in the state of California.

“That is 5,000 crimes that occurred that could have been prevented if they had cooperated with ICE as federal law provides,” Vaughan told Breitbart News. “What is the cost to Californians for that crime spree?”

“Surely it is a lot more than the cost of the few minutes of a California jail officer’s time to notify ICE, or to keep the offenders in custody for ICE for a few hours,” Vaughan said. “But California politicians like Gov. Brown, Xavier Becerra, and Libby Schaaf would rather have the crime, apparently.”

This estimate was gathered by provided ICE data, as the agency says it has no way of tracking the figure of how many exact criminal illegal aliens have been released into the public by California’s sanctuary laws.

“Lack of cooperation from sanctuary jurisdictions means that they do not notify ICE when they release an individual on whom we have filed a detainer, so we have no way of knowing exactly how many such individuals they have released,” an ICE official told Breitbart News. “We often become aware of an alien’s release from a jurisdiction when we re-encounter the alien later during targeted enforcement.”

As Breitbart News reported, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf recently warned criminal illegal aliens ahead of a regional raid by ICE, helping convicted illegal alien sex offenders, armed robbers, and drunk drivers escape deportation.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Department of Justice is now investigating Schaaf for obstruction of justice. About 47 percent of likely voters say the DOJ should prosecute Schaaf for obstruction of justice, while only 36 percent of likely voters say the DOJ should not prosecute the mayor.

Sessions announced a DOJ lawsuit against the state of California, challenging three of its sanctuary state laws that protect criminal illegal aliens from deportation by ICE.

It’s Official Obama’s Top Brass Is Under Investigation For High Crimes

Elder Patriot – One month ago we reported that the Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Devin Nunes was turning the focus of the committee’s FISA abuse investigation to the role the State Department played in advancing the phony Steele dossier.   That dossier was the central piece of evidence used to justify conducting a host of illegalities against Donald Trump.

Our article followed an early February op-ed in the Washington Post written by longtime Clinton sycophant, Jonathan Winer that was intended to save himself.  In the process, the admissions Winer made in that editorial implicated a whole slew of Obama and Clinton loyalists and appointees.

Now investigative reporter Sara Carter has discovered that the HPSCI investigation is leading straight to former Obama Secretary of State, John Kerry:

“The House Select Committee on Intelligence is now investigating former Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s possible role into the unverified dossier paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton Campaign, this reporter has learned. The dossier, assembled by a former British spy, laid the foundation for the FBI’s investigation into alleged collusion between President Trump and Russia and was the essential piece of evidence used by the FBI to get a warrant to spy on a former volunteer for the Trump campaign.”

[…]

“… it was in February when questions surfaced regarding Kerry’s possible involvement or knowledge of the dossier.”

Kerry’s involvement was almost a certainty considering he was running the State Department.

Winer led investigators straight to Kerry when he wrote in that op-ed, “in 2013, I returned to the State Department at the request of Secretary of State John F. Kerry, whom I had previously served as Senate counsel.”

Since that original op-ed, House Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley had sent a criminal referral to both the DOJ and the FBI requesting a criminal inquiry be opened into Christopher Steele – the author of the phony dossier that served as the primary article of evidence used to defraud the FISC into granting a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign – for potential violations of 18 U.S. Code § 1001.

In his referral, Grassley cited evidence that several Clinton allies, who were also connected to the State Department, had a hand in the dossier including Sidney Blumenthal, a close confidant of Hillary Clinton, and Cody Shearer, a former journalist who went on to work for the Clintons.  Both appeared to be feeding Steele information.

The longer this goes on the more Democrats are being tied to the Clinton-Obama criminal syndicate.  You’d think that at least one Democrat would have the good sense to jump ship before they go down with it.

The fact that no one has makes one wonder just how true the accounts of Clinton’s “body count” really are.

Joe Biden’s Niece Pleads Guilty to Major Crime — Her ‘Punishment’ Sparks Outrage Across U.S.

Democrats have only ever been good at one thing: stealing money from other people.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s niece, Caroline Biden, pleaded guilty in 2017 to stealing a borrowed credit card and going on a $100,000 shopping spree. She has now paid it all back.

However, Biden’s “punishment” has sparked outrage across the country.

Here are the details…

From BizPac Review:

The niece of former Vice President Joe Biden paid over $100,000 in court-ordered restitution on Friday, as part of an arrangement to avoid jail time for a six-figure shopping spree with a stolen credit card.

Biden, 30, accepted the deal under which she paid back $110,810.04 after pleading guilty to grand larceny in the Manhattan Supreme Court, the New York Post reports.

The former vice president’s niece was sentenced to two years’ probation back in June. The court agreed to drop the grand larceny charge against Biden and allow her to re-plead to petit larceny after she does 10 days of community service.

Biden’s recent skirt with the law stems from a 2015 incident in which she asked to borrow an unidentified man’s credit card for a $672 purchase at Manhattan’s Bigelow Apothecaries on Sixth Avenue.

She vastly exceeded that amount, charging the card with a total of $110,810.04. Biden was arrested in May 2017, and charged with grand and petit larceny. READ MORE

Doctor Convicted of Sexually Abusing Teen to Be Released from Prison After Four Months

A former doctor and Boy Scout leader in Missouri who was convicted of sexually abusing a teenager will be released from prison Tuesday after serving four months behind bars.

Joseph Mackey, 45, who had been sentenced to five years in prison in November after being convicted of statutory sodomy, is expected to be released on probation March 6 after completing a 120-day sex offender program in prison, the Kansas City Star reported.

Jackson County Circuit Court Judge Marco Roldan ordered Mackey’s release after a sex offender program evaluator “hesitantly” recommended that he serve probation.

Mackey admitted to authorities that he sexually abused the teen — whom he knew through scouting activities and as a patient, KCTV reported.

Prosecutors sought to charge Mackey with up to eight counts of second-degree statutory sodomy after he turned himself into authorities in 2015, but the victim said he would accept a guilty plea from his abuser on just one of the counts.

At his perpetrator’s sentencing hearing in November, the victim read a statement in court calling Mackey an “extremely dangerous” man, suggesting that he be locked up “for as long as possible.”

Mike Mansur, a spokesman for the Jackson County prosecutor’s office, said that Mackey’s early release is “not uncommon,” but added that such decisions sometimes cause an outcry from members of the public.

Under the current conditions of Mackey’s probation, he would not be allowed to live or have unsupervised contact with any minors and would have to enter and successfully complete a sex offender treatment program.

Maxine Waters Is Asked What Crime Specifically Trump Has Committed. Her Response Is Both Hilarious And Sad

Image result for Maxine Waters Is Asked What Crime Specifically Trump Has Committed. Her Response Is Both Hilarious And Sad

Loudmouth Rep. Maxine Waters has reinvented herself as the bullhorn of the Democrats’ anti-Trump “resistance.”

Everywhere she goes, Waters can be heard shouting “Impeach 45!”

But, as many have pointed out, impeachment requires some very specific conditions to be met.

Specifically, the president needs to have committed certain actual crimes, and in a certain way.

But the facts and details, the actual laws governing this nation, don’t seem to concern this LAWMAKER.

At a recent rally, Waters insisted:

“Impeachment is about whatever the Congress says it is. There is no law that dictates impeachment. What the Constitution says is ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ and we define that.”

In other words, in Waters’ world, Congress can just impeach anyone it pleases, and make up the rules as it goes.

Law Newz explained that while that notion is somewhat accurate, Waters had grossly skewed the reality of how impeachment works:

The framers, as we all know, were hell-bent on making sure that the American president could not become tyrannical; a key facet to their planning was to give Congress the final word on whether the chief executive was carrying out his responsibilities with the requisite dignity befitting the office. Such an concept of impeachment may provide us significant discomfort in that it varies so profoundly from the criminal justice system, but that’s precisely the point. Impeachment is inherently a political process, not a criminal one.  The numbers required for impeachment and conviction ensure that the process isn’t likely to oust a president who is merely unpopular; supermajorities aren’t easy to come by, and are inherent guards against arbitrary or capricious actions.

Trump’s been in office less than a year, and most of what Waters is bringing against him remains in the realm of far-fetched allegation and personal dislike.

“Arbitrary” would be an understatement for Waters’ efforts to impeach Trump.

FISA FALLOUT: Nunes Focuses Investigation To Clinton Crime Network – Demands Answers Over FBI’s Use of ‘Trump Dossier’

Elder Patriot – House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes has ratcheted up the heat on nearly two-dozen “current and former” high-ranking officials.

Those who had hoped they had weathered the worst of the fraudulent dossier fallout are now on notice that Nunes is just getting started.  Nunes is a pit bull and, unlike the limp wristed Republicans these anti-Trump bureaucrats have become accustomed to rolling over, they are beginning to come to terms with the fact that they may be facing their Armageddon.

The recipients of the letters were not identified but the demands for information were clear:

Former FBI Director James Comey testified that the dossier was both “salacious and unverified.”  But, that didn’t stop any number of Obama officials from making it the central piece of evidence in an application to the FISC to secure a surveillance warrant on Carter Page, and by extension as many of the Trump campaign team members as Page would come in contact with.

Now, Nunes wants to know what they knew and when, every last one of them. Including Obama.  And the HPSCI chairman left little wiggle room for those who might try to avoid answering.

Every letter included this warning: “If you do not provide timely answers on a voluntary process, the Committee will initiate compulsory process,” suggesting that subpoenas would be forthcoming to those who refused to respond by the date the letters compel then to.

Moreover, question 9 is aimed straight at Obama.  Comey testified that he had briefed Obama for the first time on January 5, 2017, fifteen days before his term ended.

But, four months before that, in a September 2, 2016 text from FBI attorney Lisa Page wrote to FBI Counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok President Obama wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”

The following month, in October of 2016, the first FISA warrant was issued authorizing surveillance against Carter Page.  Are we to believe that Obama had no knowledge of the FISA warrant until January of the following year?

Nunes can read those discrepancies better than you can.

Trey Gowdy, Hillary Clinton’s Crimes are Much Worse Than Anyone Thought

“In politics nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

The news today is that James Comey revealed classified information in the memos he leaked. There is nothing new here so why has it suddenly gone mainstream? For the answer you have to know the players.

First, Comey knows too much. He did his best to navigate the swamp while he was the F.B.I. director but Washington’s criminal elite now needs a fall guy and his handling of the Clinton email investigation angered people on both sides of the political divide so he’s the perfect sacrificial lamb.

Trey Gowdy, one of Washington’s few legitimate men of integrity and a frequent critic of Jim Comey recently said:

I’ve had plenty of differences with Jim Comey, I want to be really clear about that, but I think history is going to be much kinder to Comey over his July press conference [in which he declined to prosecute Hillary] than the Democrats were when he had it. I think he had access to information that, because he’s a stand-up guy who’s not going to decimate classified information, although God knows everyone else is, he’s not going to [release] it even if it casts him in a negative light.

Gowdy is talking about something we reported almost two months ago. After working the case for over a year Comey realized that damned near the entire government was involved.

One agent with intimate knowledge of the case characterized Comey’s dilemma this way:

“There is enough for her and the entire government to be brought down. People do not realize how enormous this whole situation actually is.

The problem is with the Clinton Foundation as I mentioned, which you should just imagine as a massive spider web of connections and money laundering implicating hundreds of high-level people.

““…This case would explode into a million other cases if fully brought to light, and then we would be one agency competing against the entire government and a hoard of other interests. It is a very tense and uncomfortable position.

Comey chose to avoid a “massive sh*tstorm,” as the agent characterized it, that would’ve resulted from exposing the entire globalist power structure.

That is why Comey allowed Hillary and everyone close to her to scrub and then destroy their personal computers and devices rather than conduct a proper investigation in accordance with standard F.B.I. collection of evidence procedures.

The only thing that stood in the way of Comey succeeding in protecting the Clintons’ criminal syndicate was the NYPD discovery of Anthony Weiner’s laptop that had almost all of the evidence that Comey has sought to eviscerate.

While it’s true that Comey is a dirty cop who should not be forgiven for turning his back on his responsibility to ferret our corruption wherever he found it, that is not the reason he’s now the target of Washington’s swamp. Quite the opposite is the reason, in fact.

Clinton co-conspirators are growing more and more desperate to stop President Trump from fulfilling his campaign promise to drain the swamp and James Comey – who knows where all of the skeletons are hidden – must be discredited prior to cutting a deal to tell Trump’s investigators what they want to know in order to save his own bacon.

Whatever we suspected about the Clintons’ criminal actions, Trey Gowdy just told us it’s a whole lot worse than we ever imagined.

And So It Begins … Report: FBI Agents Arrive in Little Rock – America’s 1st Family Of Crime Cornered

Kirsters Baish| We are happy to announce that the FBI is actually beginning a very necessary investigation into corruption. After Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election, the left tried everything they could in order to take down President Trump, and in fact they are still trying. The Justice Department has finally announced that they will be investigating Hillary Clinton’s actions during the election.

The Conservative Post reported that the FBI has made their way to Little Rock, Arkansas. This is where the Clintons used to reside. They are ready to go through all of the Clinton’s belongings in order to dig up evidence of any crimes possibly committed by Hillary Clinton. 

Now that James Comey isn’t standing in their way, the Justice Department is launching a full investigation into Hillary Clinton. Earlier in the month, the DOJ started a new investigation into any alleged criminal activity carried out by failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during her time served as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State.

Clinton had specifically been accused of engaging in “pay-to-play” politics involving an agreement with Russia that has come to be known as “Uranium One.” This isn’t the only thing that is changing, however. Evidence is building which will prove that the Clinton Foundation received mass amounts of money which could have very well been in return for policy favors from Hillary herself.

It was reported by the Hill that FBI agents stationed in Little Rock, Arkansas, the place where the Clinton Foundation was founded, are leading the investigation. Agents have already interviewed multiple witnesses, and they are planning on interviewing even more in the next few weeks.

Are we finally going to see the fall of Hillary Clinton?

The majority of Americans have dreamed about the day that Hillary Clinton makes her way to federal prison for her crimes. Accusations against her are disturbing enough that even those who weren’t too concerned about her prior to the 2016 presidential election are now praying for her capture.

The Hill reported:

The Justice Department has launched a new inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of State, law enforcement officials and a witness tells The Hill.

The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.

The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.

The FBI recently interviewed one witness who described the session as “extremely professional and unquestionably thorough.” They explained that the session had a focus on questions about whether or not donors of the Clinton charitable efforts had gotten any favorable treatment from the Obama administration when it came to a policy decision that was touched on in media reports.

The same witness explained that he would like to stay anonymous. He went on to say that the agents were from Little Rock and their questions had a big focus on government discussions of Clinton entity donations during the time that Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State under former President Barack Obama.

The Little Rock FBI office referred a reporter on Thursday to Washington headquarters. This is where officials wold not make any official comments.

It was reported by the Wall Street Journal in 2017 that multiple agents of the FBI field offices, which included the field office in Little Rock, were finding information about the Clinton Foundation. The report also claimed that there had been some pushback from the Justice Department.

Officials explained that the DOJ was looking again at whether or not there were any unresolved issues from the closed case into Hillary Clinton’s transmission of classified information via her personal email server. James Comey had concluded in 2016 that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in her handling of said classified information. He also stated that there was some evidence of legal violations, however he didn’t recommend any charges because he claimed that he couldn’t prove that she and her top aides meant to break the law.

It’s about time that the FBI launch a full scale investigation into Hillary Clinton. Could this be the end for one of the most corrupt families in the United States? Let’s hope so!

Al Sharpton: “It Should Be a Federal Crime” for White People to Shoot Blacks – Even in Self Defense

Certifiably nuts race-baiter and Ferguson riot fire starter Al Sharpton is once again demonstrating why he belongs in an insane asylum after saying it should be a crime for Whites to shoot a Black person, even if it’s a case of self-defense.

So if you’re attacked and the aggressor is Black, you should just let that person violently assault you instead of defending yourself?

This “logic” only makes sense inside the mind of a depraved racist like the “Reverend” Sharpton.

From BuzzPo:

The Justice Department ruled there was insufficient evidence to charge George Zimmerman with violating the civil rights of Trayvon Martin in the 2012 self defense shooting. That sparked some ludicrous words from Al Sharpton on Wednesday mornings Tom Joyner Morning Show.

Sharpton explained to Tom Joyner, “The intent to prove that Zimmerman did it because of his race, that is the legal threshold. Unless we change that legislation, we end up where we are in terms of the Trayvon Martin case. We must do that, even for self-defense. Clearly I’m disappointed. Clearly I’m sure the family is. But clearly the Justice Department can not go beyond the laws as is written. As we fight these fights and continue to fight from Staten Island to Ferguson, we must change the threshold that you qualify a Federal civil rights case for, or we will keep having these moments of activism that end up with cases of being disappointing.”

Isn’t providing a particular group of people extra special protection and benefits due to their skin color racism?

If someone suggested this about Whites, you can bet your bottom dollar Sharpton and the lemmings who follow him would start foaming at the mouth.

We have a 2nd Amendment and laws to protect every individual from harm — regardless of their race. Do I even have to say that? Come on already.

It would be easy to dismiss Sharpton’s words as the ranting of a madman. But for the fact that the President of the United States has invited this madman to the White House a staggering 85 times — more than any other individual not on the Federal payroll.

And Sharpton was brought in by Obama and Eric Holder after the Ferguson, Missouri chaos began back in 2014 — not to calm things down — but fan the flames of racism and division. Thanks to their disgraceful, dangerous rhetoric, two cops were shot in Ferguson two months later, with one coming a half inch from death.  And a Grand Jury later exonerated Officer Darren Wilson of all charges, with even Holder himself admitting “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” never happened. Source
