McCabe: Trump wants to destroy me to stop Mueller probe
NBC News ^ | 16 Mar 18 | Gregg Birnbaum

Posted on 03/17/2018 4:21:36 AM PDT by SkyPilot

Former top FBI official Andrew McCabe, who was fired late Friday night by Attorney General Jeff Sessions two days before becoming eligible for full pension benefits, said in an extraordinary statement that he was targeted because President Donald Trump wants to destroy him as part of his "war" against special counsel Robert Mueller.

"This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement and intelligence professionals more generally," McCabe said in a statement released shortly after Sessions announced his decision. "It is part of this administration's ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the special counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the special counsel's work."

The statement was the first time McCabe had spoken candidly of his anger at the Trump White House. In it, he painted a remarkable picture of an administration that tried to politicize its principal law enforcement arm, the FBI, and discredit several of the bureau's longtime leaders, all in an effort to escape scrutiny of Trump by the special counsel.

McCabe noted in his statement that he had knowledge that could be useful to Mueller's investigation into events involving the president.

"Here is the reality: I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of (FBI director) James Comey," McCabe said.

Trump's dismissal of Comey and events surrounding it are reported to be a key aspect of Mueller's investigation into the president.

"....he painted a remarkable picture of an administration that tried to politicize its principal law enforcement arm, the FBI...."

What he say is true....

....about the OBAMA administration, not the Trump administration.

Caught in a standard liberal projection of Obama's failures onto Trump.

And the IRS, something Gov. Huckabee called a “criminal enterprise.”

What is with these pensions? Nearly two million? Is that projecting him to live to be one hundred?

You know, outrage doesn’t cover it. This is nothing less than an act of war.

You don’t know what you are talking about. Jones and cernovich did not “create” the pdophilia rumors. That is a clearly untrue statement.

I’m wondering how many guillotines we will need to clean up the media? Then how many it will take to sterilize the swamp of devils like McCabe, Muler-er, Comey, lynch, Strozck, etc.? Wonder if those devices can be made of steel, so we can hose them down after a few uses?

What really really irks is that this has been going on,
and they ALL KNEW IT and enabled it, and the MSM
was not only IN ON IT, they profited by it.
They even brought the children to the White Mosque for rape there.

His little speech....his true colors are coming through loud and clear.

That's it really and not just McCabe.

Even though this deep state war is just heating up, I am so thankful for President Trump without whom we the people would have remained unaware of the dark forces moving against us.

Comey is out. McCabe is out. Megalomaniac Brennon is seething and spitting threats like he is the unelected commander of America.

It's all breathtaking.

Yes dirtbag, and we want him to as well. Not only destroyed, but waterboarded and imprisoned for life.

Here is the reality: I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took...

No, here's the reality. You are being "singled out" because you are a crook, a murdering-traitor and an enemy of the American people and the US Constitution which you took an oath to defend.

Sleeping naked on the concrete floor of a 4 x 8 windowless cell for the rest of your worthless life.....would be way too good for you.

Hanging would be more appropriate. And all your little RAT-hack friends as well.

Sick of it!

Wow!
Last night when Fox broke the news of McCabe’s firing and then reported on the smug little jerk’s response, I immediately thought of the Red October torpedo.
Sure hope the IG’s report will help sink the whole anti-Trump—and anti-America— cabal!

Idiot.

If President Trump REALLY wanted to “destroy” him,

He would be DESTROYED Already!

This is the primary contradiction of the Leftist Meme.

If Trump were REALLY a Nazi, if Trump were REALLY a Hitler, if Trump were REALLY an all-powerful dictator,if Trump were REALLY exceeding his Constitutional Powers, there would have been a big “Night of the Long Knives” and they would all be DEAD already.

General Flynn, God willing, could end up a very rich man if he sues. Carter Page is suing several bottom-feeders.
