Deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe testified in front of the House Intelligence Committee for about seven and a half house on Tuesday, in which sources said McCabe was a “friendly witness” to the Democrats in the room, reports Red State.

Essentially, McCabe was protected by the Democrats but he didn’t tell them anything they wanted to hear. They wanted him to help them build a case against President Trump for obstruction of justice in the Russia-collusion probe, but he just didn’t give it to them.

“‘Sources close to the investigation say that McCabe was a “friendly witness” to the Democrats in the room, who are said to have pressed the deputy director, without success, to help them build a case against President Trump for obstruction of justice in the Russia-collusion probe. “If he could have, he would have,” said one participant in the questioning,’ reports Fox News.”

Investigators say that McCabe recounted to the panel how hard the FBI worked to verify the contents of the anti-Trump “dossier” and stood by its credibility.

When pressed to actually identify what in the salacious document the bureau had actually corroborated, the sources said that McCabe only cited the fact that Trump campaign adviser Carter Page had traveled to Moscow.

Beyond that, investigators said, McCabe could not even say that the bureau had verified the dossier’s allegations about the specific meetings Page supposedly held in Moscow.

According to McCabe’s testimony, nothing in the Trump dossier has been verified except for Page’s trips to Russia.

Then McCabe flat out lies to the committee about his knowledge of who funded the dossier:

“‘The sources said that when asked when he learned that the dossier had been funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, McCabe claimed he could not recall – despite the reported existence of documents with McCabe’s own signature on them establishing his knowledge of the dossier’s financing and provenance,’ reports Fox news.”

This is all very hard to believe when it seems that all official and media Washington was aware of the source of the Trump dossier and the FBI paid around $50,000 to finance opposition research on a presidential candidate.

Keep in mind that Scooter Libby got a federal conviction for saying he remembered hearing about Valerie Plame from one source when prosecutors said he heard about her from another.

The Intelligence Committee also issued more subpoenas today, all indications point to demoted DOJ official Bruce G. Ohr and FBI General Counsel James A. Baker, who accompanied McCabe, along with other lawyers, to Tuesday’s HPSCI session.

    Honestly, I can’t believe anything the FBI says or does. It has lost all credibility and has rendered its activities irrelevant. Sorry FBI you are a liar.

    It would be easy to clean house of all the leftist radicals. Check the last three administrations pol appointments.

    Please tell me McCabe was under oath when he lied.
    Otherwise this is another skate-away situation that will come back to bite Congress when there is another Trump assassination attempt.
    God bless America.

    • LeSellers

      Lying to police is a crime even when not under oath.

      “Scooter” Libby was not under oath when he made his inadvertent misstatement, and he paid an extremely high price for not having a lawyer present for his entire time being grilled.

      This is yet another instance of preferential treatment being given to Democrats and their sycophants.

    I know the horse I’m beating is dead, but it’s just another of MANY reasons why God says we’re not supposed to put our trust in men (humans); especially those who are trying to “enforce” (while manipulating people with) HUMAN laws in lieu of Gods Laws. It’s also a good reason to (at least in America, though it won’t be much longer)to exercise the 5th Ammendment(especially if you’re innocent, since “law enforcement” has been given “permission” to lie to you) more than ever before. It’s really just a natural regression of our now lawless nation(God’s Laws) for so called “law enforcement” personnel at all levels, to be lawless as well. My hometown Chicago has been proof of that since AT LEAST the ’60s. Won’t be much longer for the return of Jesus Christ (Rev. 1:3; 22:10-20).

    None of these scumbags will ever be convicted. They will resign with their fat pensions and become a consultant for one of George Soros’s anti American organizations.

    Weaponization of all these agencies, aka The Executive Branch of Government, is precisely the reason our founders crafted the 2nd Amendment. Back then, crime was not a big issue and hunting was understood. The civil right to keep and bear is the last line of defense against rogue executives using agencies willing to turn rogue.

    If he can’t recall that fact, than his whole testimony is based on someone with a memory defect and thereby worthless.

  • Gerry Costa

    BFD !!!!! 95% of the prior administration lied to Congress and NOT ONE paid for it. They are ALL still working or walking around free as a bird. Until action is actually taken against these criminals, how can anyone have any faith in the doj,fbi or the judicial system.

  • ch

    They need to fire McCabe. He says he is going to retire shortly as soon as he has been there long enough to get his retirement. He doesn’t deserve retirement at our expense.

  • dan690

    McCabe gave the FBI a black eye and should be fired and prosecuted.

  • He needs to be stripped of all benefits and thrown in prison!

  • Mathematical certainty

    The most repulsive outcome of all these investigations into corruption, fraud, and treason is that no one involved will be incarcerated.

  • John T Koszalka

    Evil has entered the FBI, and Comey was the head disciple. It is now time to clean them all out.
    Note! Comey has attempted to mask his evil doings by quoting scripture, but I have a verse of scripture for him—–“A WORM, AND NO MAN.”

  • btb

    A bunch of Obama/Clinton boot-licking deviant SCUM !
    Each and every one of them needs to be hung for blatant treason !

    Drew McCabe will not be judged by the same standard as Scooter Libby, because he’s a Democrat and Scooter was a Republican.

    In any event, McCabe will be out the door in March, as he is unceremoniously forced to retire. Then he can hit the MSNBC/ CNN/ HLN guest contributor circuit to supplement his generous pension. Wray has no interest in retaining him. Drew as Comey’s guy. Wray wants his own team.

    As for the lies, Congress must handle that issue, because the FBI will not investigate McCabe (or Comey, Baker, Strzok, Page, or any of the others). You’d otherwise need the DoJ’s IG to perform that service and right now he has plenty of work cleaning up the hot, stinking mess left by the bureau while conducting a sham investigation of the Clinton servers/ emails/ devices crimes.

    Sessions must withdraw his recusal. Otherwise he is useless to the administration and should resign.
