Defending McCabe is going to bite them in the ass

Andrew McCabe

Last night, on the recommendation of the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility and the Inspector General’s office, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe.

And within seconds, the Enslaved Press and Democrat opportunists were howling to the heavens about the so-called mistreatment of this “21-year veteran of the FBI.”

Naturally they are framing this termination as some vindictive act concocted by a mean-spirited President against a man who did nothing wrong.

Of course, that’s exactly how Andrew McCabe himself is framing it (as you can see at The Conservative Treehouse)

But let them howl. Let them clutch their pearls and issue breathless defenses.

At the end of the day, defending Andrew McCabe is going to bite them on the ass in a big, BIG way.

The official IG reports have yet to come out.

And I think when they do, they will lay waste to the Obama Justice Department and the Comey/McCabe FBI.

And if the media and the Democrats had the sense God gave a goat, they would be running in the opposite direction rather than rallying to McCabe’s side.

But I get why they’re doing it – and I’m sure you get it as well.

Trump Derangement Syndrome dictates that you always take the side of the person who opposes Donald Trump.

On top of that, the media and the Democrats believe that setting the narrative early will benefit them in the long run.

And ordinarily that’s true. The one who controls the narrative wins.

But I think these IG reports are going to be so damning that this knee-jerk attempt to control the narrative is going to be kneecapped before it can take off.

None of this is about Donald Trump – or even Jeff Sessions.

If the FBI’s own Office of Professional Responsibility was recommending McCabe be fired, then this is about the FBI and its effort to restore the agency’s reputation and integrity.

Check out these tweets from Fox News Senior Correspondent Adam Housley. I think they shed some much-needed perspective on last night’s events.

There is far more going on than we know.

And trying to boil it all down to Trump – or even Clinton – is missing the point.

The irony, of course, is it was the Democrats who insisted the Inspector General investigate the FBI for its handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation.

They wanted the FBI punished for what they claimed was destroying Hillary’s chances of winning the election. It was a demand they made in haste that was fueled by anger.

In other words, the IG investigation began as short-sighted political payback by the Democrats.

And in their haste, the Democrat Party is going to get far more than what they bargained for.

Over at PJ Media, Roger L. Simon makes a couple of salient points I’d like to share.


Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the Inspector General’s reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the “Gate of Gates.”

From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in a free republic. And it will not just be the small change of Peter Strzok (the dimwitted director of counter-intelligence) and his gal pal Lisa Page. It will include—on one level or another—James Comey, Loretta Lynch, John Brennan, James Clapper, Susan Rice and, almost inevitably, Barack Obama, not to mention others known and unknown.

And then this:

Democrats, who are all over Twitter at the moment defending McCabe, are making a huge mistake. They will be embarrassed when the details come out. The Office of Professional Responsibility is not a partisan adjunct of the Republican Party or anything close. Furthermore, it was the Democratic Party that called for the Inspector General to investigate. He was appointed by Obama. As the old saying goes, be careful what you wish for.

The same goes for the Democrats’ determined and ever-loyal media allies. It is time for them to think twice. The press, of all people, should want the government to be accountable to the citizenry. That’s supposedly their job. They should also want organizations like the FBI to be unbiased. Given what has happened in the past few years, however, even typing those sentences seems laughable. But we are at a turning point. Who knows? Even some of the media may wake up. A large number of facts will be appearing shortly that they will have to digest, facts that will not be especially easy to spin. We shall see how they respond.

Andrew McCabe is just the first domino to fall.

And rushing to his defense now means getting crushed by the dominos that follow.

    The first Domino to fall was Comey…Mc Cabe is the second…in just over 1 years…and that’s way too long…the dominos aren’t falling fast enough…better hope the chain reaction happens rapidly now before the midterms or the swamp will regain it’s swamp status and doom us all.

      I hate being persnickety, but the context of this column is the Inspector General investigation. McCabe is the first domino to fall due to the IG. Comey’s firing had nothing to do with that.

    Let the crushing begin.
