Swamp: Guess Who Set Up Andrew McCabe's Legal Fund?
Townhall.com ^ | 4/6/2018 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 04/06/2018 6:59:45 PM PDT by bitt

As Guy wrote, fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe raked in more than $500,000 from leftist sympathizers this week after setting up a legal fund and blasting President Trump. As a reminder, McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions after the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and the DOJ Inspector General recommended he be terminated for a lack of candor.

But it turns out, McCabe's pay day wasn't a result of a grassroots effort to defend him against false attacks. The GoFundMe page was set up by a Washington, D.C. lobbying firm connected to President Barack Obama. From Law & Crime (bolding is mine):

Melissa Schwartz is a crisis and communications consultant who currently works for The Bromwich Group.

She’s also McCabe’s present spokesperson.

The Bromwich Group is a K Street consulting and PR firm headed by Michael R. Bromwich. Immediately prior to founding the firm, Bromwich served as the first director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management under President Barack Obama.

On March 29, Schwartz sanctioned the official GoFundMe campaign by tweeting, “Correct. We launched the official campaign today.” Later that same day, in response to suspicion about the veracity of the fundraiser, she tweeted, “That is the official campaign we launched today.” (Notably, Schwartz is also the person who issued the Monday statement announcing the legal defense fund would stop accepting donations–after repeatedly shifting its initial $150,000 goal upwards.)

I dont believe this funding propaganda.......it’s a story out of Obama’s dog-eared playbook.

2012 Candidate Obama said “he was so popular,” people were showering him with money; he was going to run the first billion dollar campaign.

Then halfway through the campaign, Obama was borrowing millions from banks to stay afloat as a candidate.

No word on what happened to the billion his “popularity” triggered.

All those folks are very connected, since they each depend on the other for their freedom from prosecutions and decades in prison.

McCabe probably got his 11 million bet worth from Klintoon foundation.

2 to 1 the CIA funneled huge amounts into the fund to help keep him quiet. McCabe’s position was to cover up all the CIA’s domestic drug running, arms dealing and human trafficing.

Is Obama paying McCabe to keep his mouth shut?

Why does Andrew who is a millionaire need a defense fund? Is he about to get indicted with something serious?

The last thing they want is to see one of these FBI/DOJ people going to jail. There is no way to spin that!

“Melissa Schwartz”

Well since George Soros is really Gyorgi Schwartz, I’m wondering if they are related?

Is O'bozo buying McScabs silence or threatening a 187 for non-compliance?
