REPORT: Andrew McCabe Seeks Immunity Deal To Go After James Comey & Others Within Obama Government

Former #2 at the FBI, Andrew McCabe, is said to be willing to sing for federal investigators looking into a vast anti-Trump conspiracy involving high-ranking officials within the Obama government including but not limited to, former Obama FBI Director James Comey. The swamp rats are now turning on each other.

Via True Pundit:

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has requested the Senate Judiciary Committee provide him with immunity from prosecution in exchange for testifying at an upcoming congressional hearing focused on how senior officials at the FBI and Justice Department handled the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, according to a letter obtained by CNN.

“Under the terms of such a grant of use immunity, no testimony or other information provided by Mr. McCabe could be used against him in a criminal case,” wrote Michael Bromwich, a lawyer for McCabe, to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, who has requested McCabe testify next week.

…The stakes for McCabe’s appearance, however, are particularly high. The former No. 2 at the FBI is entangled in a separate criminal investigation stemming from an earlier report from the inspector general’s office that concluded he lied to internal investigators. McCabe has steadfastly denied wrongdoing, but any congressional testimony he provides could have serious implications for his criminal case.

“Mr. McCabe is willing to testify, but because of the criminal referral, he must be afforded suitable legal protection,” Bromwich wrote to Grassley. “This is a textbook case for granting use immunity. . . . If this Committee is unwilling or unable to obtain such an order, then Mr. McCabe will have to no choice but to invoke his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination.”

James Comey Was Recently “Grilled” During DOJ Interview – Establishment Media Ignores

Obama-era FBI Director James Comey is said to have had a rather uncomfortable interview with federal investigators recently regarding potentially pending criminal charges against Comey’s #2 at the FBI – Andrew McCabe. It’s an astonishing turn of events that would indicate some federal prosecutors are now pushing back against the still-ongoing and highly controversial Mueller probe that was initiated in part by McCabe.

The “investigators” are now being investigated – big time.

Via ZeroHedge:

Federal investigators from the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s office recently interviewed former FBI director James Comey as part of an ongoing probe into whether former FBI #2 Andrew McCabe broke the law when he lied to federal agents…

What makes the interview particularly interesting is that Comey and McCabe have given conflicting reports over the events leading up to McCabe’s firing, with Comey calling his former deputy a liar in an April appearance on The View.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz issued a criminal referral for McCabe following a months-long probe which found that the former acting FBI Director leaked a self-serving story to the press and then lied about it under oath. McCabe was fired on March 16 after Horowitz found that he “had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor – including under oath – on multiple occasions.”

—————-

Here are where things get even more interesting. Whispers are circulating throughout D.C. that McCabe is open to making a deal with federal prosecutors which would initially put two very high profile targets in play: James Comey and Robert Mueller.

From there the entire Deep State anti-Trump operation could be exposed – ON RECORD including, but not limited to, a former President of the United States.

The wheels of power in motion to prevent that from happening will be significant.


 

Anti-Trump Former FBI Agent Andrew McCabe Admits To Being “Confused” During His Alleged False Testimony

It seems the reason the FBI recommended the immediate firing of Andrew McCabe was his lack of honesty during an investigative interview regarding his role in helping to cover up alleged crimes by Hillary Clinton as well as subsequent illegal surveillance of the Trump campaign.

Mr. McCabe isn’t admitting to lying just yet. Instead, he’s saying he was “confused” when he gave his apparently misleading answers.

Via The New York Post

Ex-FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe admitted Saturday he was “confused and distracted” when he talked to investigators about alleged misconduct during a 2016 investigation of the Trump campaign.

McCabe “lacked candor” in that interview, Attorney General Jeff Sessions determined, and fired him March 16, two days before he would have been eligible for a pension.

“Some of my answers were not fully accurate,” McCabe admitted in a Washington Post op-ed, but insisted, “I did not knowingly mislead or lie to investigators.

“When asked about contacts with a reporter that were fully within my power to authorize . . . I answered questions as completely and accurately as I could,” said McCabe, who was accused of leaking material to the Wall Street Journal.

He added that when he realized that his answers “may have been misunderstood,” he tried to correct them.

“At worst, I was not clear in my responses, and because of what was going on around me may well have been confused and distracted — and for that I take full responsibility,” McCabe said, adding that his misstatements don’t justify President Trump’s “unhinged public attacks on me.”

————–

For Deep State operatives caught red-handed doing something wrong, it’s called being “confused.”

For everyone else, it’s called lying.

Also, note how McCabe neglected to mention it was the FBI’s own investigation into his actions that then suggested he be fired. That wasn’t Donald Trump’s recommendation. Nor was it Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s. It was the FBI itself that called for McCabe to be sent packing. It’s a very important point the Establishment Media continues to ignore.


 

Andrew McCabe’s Anti-Trump/Pro-Hillary Bias So Bad/Negligent He Now Faces Losing His Entire FBI Pension

Andrew McCabe was among the highest-ranking of all FBI officials. He had both power and influence over America’s largest and most influential law enforcement agency.

He now faces termination and the loss of his entire FBI pension.

The reasons are apparently many but most prominent among them are Mr. McCabe’s fervent anti-Trump and pro-Hillary bias that might very well have resulted in the FBI being weaponized (with the likely full approval of former President Barack Obama) during the 2016 Election.

Via NBC News:

WASHINGTON — The FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility has recommended the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who remains on the payroll — a move that could put the veteran official’s pension at risk, according to officials familiar with the process.

The recommendation is now before Attorney General Jeff Sessions. OPR has already determined that McCabe should be fired and it’s now up to Sessions whether to reverse that recommendation or to accept it.

McCabe — who has been attacked by President Donald Trump and other Republicans for alleged anti-Trump bias inside the FBI — is due to retire this weekend. If Sessions were to fire him before then, it would place McCabe’s federal pension at risk.

The OPR recommendation that he be thrown off the payroll follows an internal report from the DOJ inspector general that concluded McCabe was not fully forthcoming in answers about whether he talked to a reporter about the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation.

McCabe is a civil service employee who can’t be fired without evidence of wrongdoing.


 

Former FBI Agent Blows Whistle: “There is a cancer inside the FBI.”

A former FBI agent battling Deputy Director McCabe said there is a ‘cancer’ inside the FBI

Former FBI Supervisory Agent Robyn Gritz remembers grueling days and long nights tracking terrorists, terror networks and searching for American hostages taken by enemy actors. Her 16-year career resume reads like a Tom Clancy spy novel, with the twist that it’s a female FBI agent taking the lead in some of America’s most public terrorism and national security cases.
But Gritz, who long considered the people she worked with family, said her life was turned upside down by senior FBI management when she moved up the ranks in the bureau. She was one of the bureau’s top intelligence analysts and terrorism experts but found herself in the crosshairs with some of the bureau’s top officials. One of those officials is current Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who served as acting FBI Director until he was replaced in July after the confirmation of Christopher Wray.
Five years later Gritz is still waiting for resolution.
In her first on-camera interview about her situation, she described relentless retaliation from her supervisors and alleges the last year of her employment left her physically ill.
In her formal complaint filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission she alleges the “defamation of character through continued targeting by Andrew McCabe in official documents, and continuous patterns and instances of severe and excessive hostile behavior/attitude toward complainant.”
Neither the FBI or McCabe would comment for this story.

She was a rising star
Gritz, who joined the FBI in 1997, isn’t a household name but many of the cases she worked on were well known, like the kidnapping and death of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl and Robert Levinson, who went missing in Iran.
Early in her career and only days after the September 11 attacks, she was assigned with the task of investigating the terrorists who crashed American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon. She was also part of the team investigating the 2001 Anthrax case. From 2009 to 2012 she was the Executive Strategy Unit chief for the Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate.
Gritz worked her way to becoming one of the top counterterrorism agents in the bureau and was detailed to the CIA, where she was given commendations.
Documents obtained by Circa support Gritz’s claim of her outstanding work performance reviews, letters of commendation and awards for service.
“There’s a cancer there”
…One of her biggest supporters was President Trump’s former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who then was head of the Defense Intelligence Agency and offered to testify on Gritz behalf, as first reported by Circa.
Early this year, a highly classified leak revealing Flynn’s name and an apparent conversation with the former Russian ambassador prompted his removal from the White House and part of the FBI’s investigation into Russia. McCabe played a central role in the Russia investigation.
In June, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Charles Grassley, sent a letter after to the Justice Department raising questions regarding possible conflicts of interest with McCabe and the FBI’s investigation into Flynn.
“When I heard Michael Flynn was being brought under investigation, I wondered if they would go after him,” said Gritz, recalling the letter Flynn wrote on his Department of Defense stationary. “I still believe McCabe should have recused himself from the investigation into Flynn.”
But Flynn wasn’t her only supporter. Other top military officials also testified on behalf of Gritz, including Gen. Stanley McChrystal, Gen. Keith Alexander and retired Navy Rear Admiral B. L. Losey, who served both Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama as the White House’s National Security Council Director for Combatting Terrorism. They all wrote letters on her behalf.
…There is also an ongoing Justice Department Inspector General investigation that was prompted by Grassley, who alleged McCabe may not have properly disclosed the roughly $700,000 in campaign contributions to his Democratic wife on his ethics report and should recuse himself from the Clinton server case.

Gritz is hoping she will have resolution on her case soon but more importantly she said “I just want the bureau to get back to where it should be.”
