Former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe lied to FBI agents about leaking information to the Wall Street Journal indicating that he fought against the DOJ’s pressure to close the investigation into the Clinton Foundation. He leaked the story to save his reputation in the media. Hillary Clinton was suspected of pay-for-play as her organization collected hundreds of millions of dollars from special interests.
Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe resigned before House Republicans voted in favor of releasing the classified memo that reportedly shows that the FBI abused the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) when they used the ‘dirty dossier’ to obtain warrants to spy on the Trump campaign in 2016. Fox News reports that McCabe is named in the memo. Democrats lost their fight to prevent the memo from being exposed to the public.
Florida Congressman Ron DeSantis says the discredited dirty dossier against Trump could have been used as an “insurance policy” by the deep state to keep Trump from taking office. High-level officials from the FBI and DOJ have refused to answer when asked if the FBI helped to pay for the dirty dossier and whether the dirty dossier was used to obtain FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. DeSantis says that the only reason to refuse to answer these questions is that the answer is ‘yes’.
