Jeff Sessions May Fire Andrew McCabe

Attorney General Jeff Sessions may fire former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe today or tomorrow. Sessions received a recommendation to do this from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. McCabe has already decided to retire, which officially goes into effect this very Sunday. However, should Sessions decide to act before then, McCabe would lose his pension. The recommendation is the result of an internal probe as to McCabe′s conduct while on the job. He allegedly lied to investigators concerning whether or not he authorized some FBI personnel to leak information to the press. If he did, McCabe would have violated FBI rules, requiring an immediate dismissal, and potentially face felony, criminal charges.

Calls For Special Counsel For FISA Probe

Some Republican members of the House of Representatives are calling for the appointment of a second Special Counsel to investigate the FISA abuse by the FBI and DOJ. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered the Justice Department′s Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, to review what happened. However, the DOJ′s IG does not have much power. Horowitz cannot issue subpoenas nor empanel a grand jury to hear testimony and possibly issue criminal indictments. On top of that, many of those who were involved in the FISA warrant case for surveillance of the Trump campaign are no longer in the government. Compelling them to testify without a subpoena may prove fruitless.

More Woes For FBI, Deep State

We have several headlines this weekend, casting more doubts about the Federal Bureau of Investigations. News from the Justice Department is that the Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, may be alleging that former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was leaking to The Media before his forced retirement. We already know that James Comey had, at the very least, leaked confidential memos to the press via a law school professor. The latest allegations claim that McCabe was leaking information in the days just before, and long after, the 2016 presidential election. On top of this, we have the FBI response to a FIOA request by Judicial Watch for documents dealing with secret briefings by Comey and McCabe to Barack Obama. We know from the text messages from Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that one such meeting took place in early September, 2016. Another took place on January 5th, 2017. We learned about that one from the email Susan Rice sent herself as she was cleaning out her desk on January 20, 2017.

DOJ To Probe Obama FISA Abuse

It may seem like a long time coming, but Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced yesterday that the Justice Department will investigate Obama-era FISA abuse. Yes, FINALLY this whole business will be looked into! Sessions said that the DOJ′s Inspector General will take the lead in this probe. Probably a good choice, seeing as how I.G. Michael Horowitz was the one who discovered those crazy text messages between FBI love-birds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. He even found the text messages the FBI claimed were lost due to technical issues. Horowitz appears to be a straight-shooter and somebody we can trust.
