    President Trump is looking into revoking the security clearances of several top Obama-era intelligence and law enforcement officials, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday. During the daily press briefing, Sanders told reporters that the president was considering taking away clearances for former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former CIA Director John Brennan, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and former Director of National Security Michael Hayden (who worked under President George W. Bush).

    President Trump held an interview Monday with Sean Hannity from FOX News after his meeting and press conference with Vladimir Putin. President Trump: Before I won he said this is nothing and it can’t happen. It’s a very dishonest deal. We have to find out who did Peter Strzok report to because it was Comey and it was McCabe and there was also probably Obama. If you think Obama didn’t know what was going on, when you watch, and I said it today when you watch Peter Strzok’s performance, the lover of Lisa Page, the FBI, I tell you I...

    A Senate Judiciary Committee hearing designed to learn more about a federal report on the flawed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails was stymied when one key witness refused to talk and two others did not even attend.Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who had sought immunity before he would discuss his role in the investigation, refused to testify after it was not granted. Instead, Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley said Monday that McCabe invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, The Washington Times reported.Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI Director James Comey were also invited to testify but did not attend....

    Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, Sen. Charles E. Grassley said. Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation. Mr. Comey’s lawyer said he was out of the country — though Mr. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey was in...

    Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe used Peter Strzok’s mistress, Lisa Page, to get information on the FBI probe into investigation of Clinton’s private server. McCabe used Page to “circumvented the official chain of command”. Other bureau officials took issue with the decision. Then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe tasked the mistress of lead agent Peter Strzok to stay appraised of the probe into Hillary Clinton’s private server — a decision that other bureau officials took issue with at the time, according to the Department of Justice Inspector General’s bombshell report. McCabe was supposed to be insulated from the probe by two...

    Well, we had to expect that there’d be at least some litigation-flavored fallout over that nasty Andrew McCabe firing; ousting the guy a day before his planned retirement and thereby yanking away his health and retirement benefits was a signature Trump display of one-upsmanship. It looks like David L. Snyder, counsel for McCabe (much like we at Law & Crime), knew that the defamation lawsuit McCabe initially threatened wasn’t really the way to go. As an alternative, he’s trying his hand at a different kind of claim. Instead of suing for some version of “Trump Shouldn’t Have Fired My Client,”...

    In what can only be seen as a dubious political stunt, Andrew McCabe, through his attorney Michael Bromwich, is suing the DOJ and Inspector General for documents relating to his firing. Apparently the 39-page IG report, documenting the reasoning, along with the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) isn’t enough for McCabe.

    The indictment of James Wolfe, 58, former security director of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI), has sent shockwaves around Washington. Wolfe faces three counts of violating 18 U.S.C. 1001, for making false statements to criminal investigators, and could easily face serious jail time if convicted. After a year of leaks cascading down Capitol Hill, Wolfe is a cautionary tale for many members, staffers and journalists. Yet, one person should be especially discomforted by the indictment: former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe The Wolfe indictment shows the Justice Department has been actively pursuing leaks out of Congress. Given...

    As Cristina Laila noted yesterday, TGP previously reported in February, that fired FBI Director McCabe altered far left FBI investigator Peter Strzok’s 302 notes on his interview with General Michael Flynn. Reports are now circling that not only did corrupt former FBI Head McCabe alter the 302 regarding the interview with General Flynn that later was used to get Flynn fired and indicted by the corrupt Mueller team, McCabe and his corrupt gang also destroyed the supporting documentation for the 302. Internet sleuths are again at it. New reports are out suspecting that corrupt and fired former FBI Head McCabe...

    Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter this week to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstien who is currently leading the Department of Justice. As we have previously reported numerous times Jeff Sessions is still hiding under his desk. In the letter Charles Grassley pointed out to Rosenstein that General Mike Flynn was a witness against Andrew McCabe in a sex abuse case when McCabe came to interview him. McCabe later reportedly altered the 302 interview reports and Mike Flynn was forced out of the Trump Campaign. Additionally, former Director McCabe was fired for lack of candor regarding a leak to...

    Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz announced late Thursday his office will release the highly anticipated report about how the FBI handled various aspects of the 2016 presidential election on Thursday, June 14. The announcement comes after Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley again rescheduled a hearing, originally set for June 5, to go over the long awaited OIG investigation findings. "Thank you for inviting me to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 18, 2018, about the findings in the Office of the Inspector General's (OIG) forthcoming Review of Allegations Regarding Various Actions by the Federal...

Lawmakers and congressional staff questioned Bill Priestap behind closed-doors for several hours as part of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees' joint probe into the FBI's decision-making during the 2016 election. Republicans have been eager to talk to Priestap about his involvement with the bureau's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election as well as its probe into Hillary Clinton's use of...

    Full Title:Andrew McCabe wants grant of immunity in exchange for congressional testimony on handling of Hillary email investigation Already the subject of a criminal referral by the DOJ Inspector General, Andrew McCabe is asking for an official grant of immunity in exchange for testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee headed by Senator Chuck Grassley. The alterative would be that he takes the Fifth Amendment when quizzed, a very bad look for the former number two official in the FBI. Yet that is what looks like will happen. I can only hope that this would take place in open session, so...

    Prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia recently interviewed former FBI Director James Comey as part of a criminal investigation into his former deputy, Andrew McCabe. McCabe was accused by the Justice Department's inspector general in April of having lied to federal investigators and Comey on four occasions about improperly authorizing the disclosure of sensitive information to the media. The inspector general, Michael Horowitz, referred the matter to the D.C. U.S. Attorney's Office to determine whether McCabe should face criminal charges. Lying to federal investigators can carry a prison sentence of up to five years. In...

    I'm not talking about the unmasking of persons caught up in the Obama administration's illegal surveillance of everyone connected with Trump and his campaign. For that, there's been more than sufficient evidence. If you need more while we wait for the OIG reports, here are some excellent summaries: Sharyl Attkisson's timeline of the events and Mark Steyn's review: As I think most persons paying attention now realize, the investigation into foreign interference with the 2016 election was created as a cover for domestic interference with the 2016 election. ...

    On Friday May 11, 2018, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein stating Comey testified the FBI didn’t think General Flynn lied. Grassley also revealed Joe Pientka was the second FBI agent who joined Peter Strzok on January 24th, 2017 in an ambush style interview to take down General Flynn. Grassley demanded the FBI and DOJ produce the transcript of Flynn’s intercepted calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak and the related 302’s by May 25th. (302’s are reports FBI agents take to summarize an interview with a subject.) The...

    Here's my analysis and rationale for why the DOJ IG is the best agency to investigate #SPYGATE. 1. Rod Rosenstein has already assigned the investigation to DOJ IG. All we can do at this point is complain, write our congresspeople, etc. Won't do any good. 2. Crossfire Hurricane is/was a Top Secret, NOFORN, WNINTEL, LIMDIS, Special Access Required (SAR) program. As a minimum, anyone investigating #SPYGATE will require a current SBI, TS clearance, and inbrief on the program. If a second independent counsel were assigned, it could take months to build the team and get the clearances needed to start...
