RUSH: There were hearings in the Senate over the new FBI director, a man by the name of Christopher Wray, W-r-a-y. But how they began is what is interesting.
At the beginning of todays confirmation hearing for Christopher Wray, President Donald Trumps choice to head the FBI, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley used his opening remarks to take numerous shots at acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
The Iowa Republican first took aim at McCabe, who was put in charge of the FBI when Trump fired James Comey, over the acting heads wife and her political activities. The previous director James Comey said that the people of the FBI dont give a rip about politics but Mr. Comey installed as his deputy director a man whose wife ran for the Virginia State Senate and accepted almost a million dollars from the Virginia governors political machine, Grassley exclaimed.
Its worse than that. Hillary Clinton even raised money for McCabes wifes campaign. The senator wasnt finished, however. He went on to rattle off a number of other indiscretions he felt disqualified McCabe from capably carrying out his duties in a non-partisan and ethical manner. This included calling out McCabe for being named in a sexual discrimination complaint by a female FBI agent.
But most of his ire seemed to center on McCabes apparent disdain for former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, leading Grassley to wonder aloud why McCabe had not recused himself from the FBI investigation into Flynn. According to press reports, three FBI employees personally witnessed McCabe making disparaging remarks about Flynn before and during the Russian investigation yet Mr. MccCbe never recused himself from the Flynn investigation, Grassley sternly noted.
You dont see this. You dont see Republicans in the Senate fighting back like this. Three cheers for Grassley, of all people. He fired both barrels at McCabe today, essentially saying he had no business being acting director, that hes conflicted all over the ballpark here by his attitude toward Flynn and his wife seeking political office.
Skid marks all over McCabe’s undies.
I think Chuck is actually upset by what has taken place
More Clickity-Clack for Rush’s blog.
More disruption from you.
Is it possible that Grassley is one good man in Sodom?

Finally someone mentions McCabe’s ills, and there are many. Why didn’t these questions get asked of McCabe at his confirmation hearing? He should have NEVER been appointed or approved.
In face, McCabe should have been fired immediately upon learning of his gathering and telling other senior FBI officials that first we F Flynn and then we F Trump.
What was he up to with Mrs. Miller anyway?
Not only is he the one good man but apparently he is the only person working in DC
What does that mean?
McCabe just looks slippery.
The new guy, Wray, is going to immediately fire McCabe.
The problems enumerated today by Grassley set it up nicely.
It’s just JohnG45 with his daily thread disruption of anything Rush related. It’s his life’s passion.
Well . . . I can see it!
No. Look up Senate Bill 1241 that Snake-in-the-Grassley is sponsoring and what it will do to your privacy and financial freedom.
He never contributes to anything.
Kaslin regularly posts items from Rush’s show. I’m at work during the majority of Rush’s program so I miss most of what he says on the radio. I think it’s a nice thing that Kaslin posts the threads for us to stay caught up and discuss.
If it’s not your thing, I get it. It’s easy to scroll past these threads and not click on the links. That’s what I’ve taken to doing with all the Sean_Anthony threads linking to CFP.
