The FBI’s conspiracy against Donald Trump keeps getting worse.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions ended up the target of their vendetta.
And one top FBI official pulled this dirty trick to try and take him down.
Fired FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe is out for blood.
He leaked to the media that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was under criminal investigation for perjury.
The allegations were baseless and Sessions was cleared—in fact he never even knew about the inquiry.
But McCabe is leaking it to the media to make it seem like his termination was payback for investigating the Attorney General.
“Nearly a year before Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired senior FBI official Andrew McCabe for what Sessions called a “lack of candor,” McCabe oversaw a federal criminal investigation into whether Sessions lacked candor when testifying before Congress about contacts with Russian operatives, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.
Democratic lawmakers have repeatedly accused Sessions of misleading them in congressional testimony and called on federal authorities to investigate, but McCabe’s previously-unreported decision to actually put the attorney general in the crosshairs of an FBI probe was an exceptional move.
One source told ABC News that Sessions was not aware of the investigation when he decided to fire McCabe last Friday less than 48 hours before McCabe, a former FBI deputy director, was due to retire from government and obtain a full pension, but an attorney representing Sessions declined to confirm that.”
In his confirmation hearings, Sessions stated he never met with Russians as a member of the Trump campaign.
The Deep State then leaked that he held a meeting in his Senate office with the Russian Ambassador.
But Sessions did not disclose that meeting on the advice of the FBI because it was in his capacity as a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and was normal business for someone in his position.
But left-wing Senators Patrick Leahy and Al Franken recommended Sessions be investigated for perjury and McCabe complied.
ABC also reports:
“Two months ago, Sessions was interviewed by Mueller’s team, and the federal inquiry related to his candor during his confirmation process has since been shuttered, according to a lawyer representing Sessions.
“The Special Counsel’s office has informed me that after interviewing the attorney general and conducting additional investigation, the attorney general is not under investigation for false statements or perjury in his confirmation hearing testimony and related written submissions to Congress,” attorney Chuck Cooper told ABC News on Wednesday.
According to the sources, McCabe authorized the criminal inquiry after a top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, and then-Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., wrote a letter in March 2017 to the FBI urging agents to investigate “all contacts” Sessions may have had with Russians, and “whether any laws were broken in the course of those contacts or in any subsequent discussion of whether they occurred.”
McCabe’s actions make it clear why he and former Director James Comey had to go.
They were partisan political hit men taking tire irons to the knees of the Trump administration.
It was a Democrat Party goon squad that weaponized their law enforcement capabilities against the left’s political enemies.
