Indict Andrew McCabe, Who Says Impeach Trump
Flopping Aces ^ | 06-17-19 | Daniel John Sobieski

CNN has found a replacement for the slimy and now-indicted porn star lawyer Michael Avenati, who represented stripper Stormy Daniels, suing and accusing Trump of criminal and impeachable activities such as misusing funds in a nondisclosure agreement he failed to honor, as well as defaming her. Avenati’s replacement as a “source with knowledge” of Tump’s alleged crimes against humanity it would appear is one Andrew McCabe, disgraced former FBI Director, fired for lying to investigators, with multiple criminal referrals aimed at him.

Avenatti appeared on CNN to the high praise of the network poobah’s so many times that one could have thought he was CNN’s chief White House correspondent: According to the Daily Caller, “CNN has hosted Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing porn star Stormy Daniels, a whopping 59 times in just two months.”

McCabe is a worthy replacement at CNN for Avenatti. As the Washington Examiner notes of McCabe’s impressive credentials:

McCabe was fired from the FBI on March 16, 2018, after the Justice Department's Office of the Inspector General determined he misled investigators about the role he had in leaking information to the Wall Street Journal in October 2016 about the investigation into the Clinton Foundation. McCabe argued that his firing was an attempt to discredit the FBI and Mueller's investigation.

In April 2018, it was revealed that the Justice Department inspector general had referred its findings to the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington for possible criminal charges, and his lawyer confirmed in February that McCabe was still under investigation.

Lying to investigators and being anti –Trump apparently qualified him to be invited to appear with CNN’s Chris Cuomo last Thursday to join the media frenzy over President Trump’s suggestion that he would at least listen to a foreign source reporting to have “dirt” on an opponent, passing the information on to the FBI if warranted. We should expect to see McCabe on CNN as many times as we saw Avenatti.

McCabe was quick to excuse Hillary Clinton and the DNC funding a fake dossier through a British agent using Russian sources while suggesting that, yes, he would at least pick up the phone and listen, as Rep. Adam Schiff did when he was offered naked pictures of Trump. As noted by Ian Schwartz on Real Clear Politics:

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said the impeachment of President Donald Trump is "absolutely" warranted in an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo on Thursday. McCabe denounced Trump, saying there is a difference between taking information acquired "illegally" from "representatives" of a hostile foreign government while defending Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, as CNN's Chris Cuomo put it, "paying Russians for information to amass a dossier."…

"Not at all, Chris. There's no equivalence between those two examples," McCabe responded. "To openly invite foreign intelligence officers, representatives from a hostile foreign government to steal information, to acquire opposition research in anyway, in any illegal way that they might do that and to present it to you is one thing."

"For a campaign to hire a law firm, an American law firm who then turns around and hires an American research company that then contracts out with a foreign individual, that is not illegal," McCabe emphasized.

McCabe also commended British operative Christopher Steele for informing them of his dossier because "he was so troubled."

"The example of the Clinton campaign, it was that very foreign individual who stepped forward and provided the information he had collected to the FBI simply because he was so troubled by what he was seeing," he said.

"Absolutely," McCabe said of a Trump impeachment inquiry. "Chris, I’m not a political person. I’m not a political operative. I respect the House leadership and the fact that they maybe considering, you know, a lot of polls and political strategy in the way they’re figuring out what to do next. That’s not my business."

Except you just made it your business on national television, didn’t you? The New York Times, if I recall correctly, was applauded for publishing the illegally obtained Pentagon Papers. They just received the material, the argument went, they did not steal it. If Norway, to follow Trump’s example, had “dirt” on Joe Biden, Trump would not be guilty of anything for merely looking at it, even if it involved the theft of Joe Biden’s high school yearbook. He encouraged no one to commit any crime in the name of opposition research.

CNN is at war with the USA.

Try Weasel McCabe for Treasonous Collusion with an Enemy of the People.

This cocky little prick - like the vast majority of Feebs - needs a good ass-kicking. In his tiny little mind, getting information on your opponent from a foreign entity is illegal, but laundering foreign information through a law firm, a research firm and a foreign intelligence officer is perfectly cool. Brilliant legal mind in that brain housing group...

Scumbag McCabe was put in charge of the Mandalay Bay / Las Vegas shooting.

And they wonder why so many people don’t buy the “official” story.

"I’m not a political operative. I respect the House leadership."

Something about that gives itself away.

He's a product of the SES, Deep State, and C_A nepotism. (But I repeat myself.)

He never would have gotten where he was on his own merit and if he hadn't lived near the Clintons' Chappaqua home.
