FIRST, IN BREAKING NEWS: Coming on the heels of Andrew McCabe’s 60 MINUTES interview on Sunday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave the Justice Department by mid-March. Gosh, apparently he’s not the person new Attorney General Bill Barr wants as his second-in-command. One can only hope this is just the first step he’s taking in cleaning out a Justice Department that Kim Strassel of the Wall Street Journal describes as “a hot mess of finger-pointing, leaks, planted press narratives, obstruction and extraordinary self-righteousness.”

…………………………..

 

In my most recent commentary about the McCabe interview, I mentioned that former FBI General Counsel James Baker testified last fall that he’d been told Rosenstein had the support of two Cabinet members for the removal of Trump via the 25th Amendment. Some media outlets have mentioned this bit of information as they would say “please pass the butter,” but it’s stunning, especially when one is reminded of who the two Cabinet members reportedly were. So it was important to me to go back and research the timeline on what was reported, when it was said, and by whom, and to lay it out in an easily understandable way, so here goes…


RELATED READING: McCabe follow-up now that 60 MINUTES has aired

The New York Times reported last September 21 that, according to their sources, not only had Rosenstein talked about invoking the 25th Amendment, but he had said he thought he could persuade at least two Cabinet members to do it: John Kelly, then head of Homeland Security, and...JEFF SESSIONS. (Recall that Sessions hired Rosenstein.) That seems like blockbuster news, but, then again, it came from the NYT, which has jumped on numerous reports that turned out to be wrong. Maybe that’s why that detail seems to have disappeared into the ether until now.

 


Commentary continues below advertisement


But now, we know that last October 3 –- after the NYT story –- James Baker testified before Congressional committees, saying, “I had the impression that the deputy attorney general had already discussed this with two members in the President’s Cabinet and that they were...onboard with this concept already.” So that lends some credence to the NYT story. (As I like to say, even a broken clock is right twice a day.)

 

As part of his October 3 testimony, Baker also said, “My recollection is that there were discussions about it over a longer period than the course of one meeting...a couple of days.”

 

Last night on 60 MINUTES, McCabe said that Rosenstein was actually talking about “counting votes, or possible votes” of Cabinet members. He told Scott Pelley that Rosenstein had said he’d had discussions about the number of Cabinet members “and others” needed to invoke the 25th Amendment.

 

Of course, McCabe is not known for being a fountain of truth; he’s being criminally investigated for having withheld information from FBI questioners when it suited his interests. So we can’t just take what he says at face value, any more than we can automatically believe what we read in the New York Times. But the accounts are starting to stack up and tend to reinforce each other.

 

You know, I cringe at some of the President’s tweets, but when he responded to the McCabe interview by calling this activity “illegal and treasonous” and an “illegal coup attempt,” he was on the right track. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsay Graham, who is promising hearings into this to find out what they were doing and will issue subpoenas if necessary, has also said these claims described “an attempted bureaucratic coup” and that this was “one of the most significant moments in American history if it’s true.” I myself have called this a “bloodless coup.” There are other terms for it: “lawyers’ coup,” “soft coup.” In this case, they didn’t get it to the next level, but there are now enough accounts from enough different sources for us to conclude that they were definitely plotting at the highest levels to unseat the President.

And if –- IF –- these two then-Cabinet members, John Kelly and Jeff Sessions, are the ones who either might have been open to the idea or were already “onboard” with it (different accounts word it differently), we have to look at the implications. John Kelly, then head of Homeland Security, took the job with Trump to work in the White House as chief of staff. That would have put him in quite a position to find a “weak spot” to use in taking down the President. And Jeff Sessions...well, knowing he might have been open to a plan such as this –- and, repeat, WE DON’T KNOW FOR SURE –- would explain a lot about his performance as attorney general.

 


Commentary continues below advertisement


Rosenstein’s office released a strong denial, but it didn’t really deny much. As you might recall, we parsed it the other day, notably the part that used present-tense “is” instead of past-tense “was.” (Depends on what the definition of “is” is.) It also said he never AUTHORIZED making recordings, when he hasn’t been accused of that, just of talking about doing it.

 

After the 60 MINUTES interview aired, I asked the question, “How on earth does Rod Rosenstein still have his job?” Thankfully, it now appears the Era Of Rosenstein is over, but according to Victor Davis Hanson, speaking on Tucker Carlson’s show, it appears he had created a “pseudo-immunity,” based on the media-driven narrative that if Trump fired him, it was the same as tampering with the Mueller investigation. He pointed out what we’ve said, that Rosenstein and McCabe both were well aware that the 25th Amendment was limited to situations regarding incapacitation, as with Woodrow Wilson after his stroke and perhaps during the last week of FDR’s life. They knew it wasn’t for cases in which they had a President they simply disagreed with. Yet they were talking about overthrowing a duly-elected President.

 

Pelley conducted a ridiculously softball interview. As Hanson noted, there’s so much he could have asked –- about the “insurance policy,” for one thing –- that he never got close to. There was nothing about the FISA applications, either, that were made while Trump was still a candidate. If they did delve into such territory, it was edited out of the final interview. (Keep in mind that editing largely shapes these “news” interviews, positively or negatively. Don Hewitt once bragged that his editing of the Bill and Hillary Clinton “Gennifer Flowers” interview on 60 MINUTES got Bill the nomination.)

 

Hanson suggested something we’ve also discussed, that one possibility is the top echelon at the FBI expected Hillary to be elected and assumed they’d be rewarded for their efforts. Then Trump won. Ruh-roh! Since they’d had no grounds for opening their anti-Trump counterintelligence investigation, they thought, “Oh, (bleep)! How do we cover for this?”

 

Be sure and read Hanson’s comprehensive piece, “Autopsy Of A Dead Coup”:

https://amgreatness.com/2019/02/17/autopsy-of-a-dead-coup/

 

If McCabe was fudging in the 60 MINUTES interview, it was likely in areas that would put him in more legal peril, such as the question of whether he had participated in the conversations about secret recordings, etc. He denied that he had. Remember, he currently is under criminal investigation for lying to FBI investigators.

 

One positive note, from Charles Lane of the Washington Post, is that we finally have what he calls a “full-fledged attorney general.” The Trump administration started out with Jeff Sessions, who immediately recused himself from all things Russia and essentially left the Justice Department in the hands of Rod Rosenstein. Trump certainly wanted Sessions gone, and Rosenstein as well, but any attempt by him to banish them would have been viewed by political opponents as “obstruction,” just as they had viewed Comey’s firing, even though all three richly deserved to be gone. After the midterms and Sessions’ departure, we had Matt Whitaker for a few months as a place-holder, and now we finally have a real, fully-functioning attorney general in Bill Barr.

 

Maybe we should nickname him “Crowbar,” now that Rosenstein has finally been pried out.

…………………….

 

A postscript: Laura Ingraham on her show Monday night noted that for behavior that should be considered out of bounds and even treasonous, some in media are calling McCabe “a patriot.” Get ready; we’ll be hearing a lot more of this drivel. But she also visited with a couple of former FBI officials –- former FBI Assistant Director for Intel Kevin Brock and former deputy Assistant Director of Counterterrorism Terry Turchie –- who considered this behavior to be “egregious” and “a huge embarrassment” that manipulated people into thinking there might have been a legitimate reason for investigating Trump when there wasn’t. McCabe was portrayed as the victim, when he’s out there selling books and doing more damage.

 

To his credit, Turchie went even farther, saying the big problem is that the Democratic Party “turning harder and harder left” is “in itself a major national security risk.” (Thank you!!) We still don’t know who else was involved and whether there might still exist a group appointed by McCabe, etc., before they left. Who, ultimately, orchestrated this?

 

A must-watch interview if you haven’t seen it…

    Wow! I couldn't "put my finger" on why Jeff Sessions didn't DO ANYTHING. He would always look like the "deer in headlight". We the people have been praying for God to expose the corruption. One day, it will be in our History books. God is bringing our Nation back. Praise Him!

    Sessions was a plant from day 1- part of the deep state and the good ole southern boy was bought by trump. Every person that voted for trump knew kelly dispised trump SO WHY IS THIS NEWSS?
    I’ll tell u why! Wray is as big corrupt American kgb as Comey- dobbs is right. Fbi top to bottom can’t be saved
    Barr is another plant
    Christie shoulda been ag
    Hey where are all the docs/texts on fbi that trump was gonna release? Again - left has already won

    well first of all. McCabe has zero creds at this point. Likewise the NYT. IMO Rosenstein LOOKS like a criminal and like ACTS like one. Neither of these two guys knows what the 25th says. They had ONE cabinet member and the chief of staff? What does it take to oust the Prez? How many votes does it take? Really? The very mention of removal of a prez for no reason other than Hilary lost is a coup. It is a crime worthy of public hanging. The new AG should operate on that assumption. As for Sessions, I hae my doubts. What does Victor David Hanson think? I will read his article that should be most informative. Oh another question, was John Kelly a cabinet member or a staff member when this "so called" vote was taken. It would appear that democrats in the DOJ and FBI are a crime family and are ACTING like on. As Dan Bongino continues to say "Where is paragraph one?" McCabe STILL can't come up with the real reason for starting the investigation because there IS no reason. I guess the players are under the delusion that we take turns being president. Um-m. Where did they get THAT mistaken idea? I think from the debates, hilary showed the people, she was not FIT to be president. I don't see ANY democrat right now that should be anywhere else but Attica or Sing Sing. Alcatraz maybe?

    The thought, the expression of removal for no reason. The meeting of those guys after the election. That should deeply disturb EVERYONE. Evil people? Oh yes, it is now apparent we have a bunch of them. And for the sake of the republic they need to be removed where they can do no further damage. I don't know how the dems became so infested with narcissists and sociopaths but that is coming from SOMEwhere!

    Andrew McCabe’s newest self-interest activity, his book selling tour, along with others promoting themselves and their deluded and lawless memoirs, showcases the need for accountability, prosecution, and punishment. If these folks were in jail instead of touting their malfeasance as a badge of victory in a two-tier justice system, perhaps others would be discouraged from such behavior.

    Instead, it looks like conservatives continue to get entrapped and destroyed while the liberal left continue to place deep state operatives in high places with impunity.

    Outside the Beltway, though, God-fearing and constitutional patriots are waking up. Praying all this gets them to the voting box and their knees.

    Thank you for all the work you are doing. Keep exposing lies and corruption!

    Why has no one, including you, noted that there is no plausible reason for Putin to prefer Trump over Hillary since she and Bill had received huge bribes from Russian sources for their “fund” and that could be used by Putin to blackmail Hillary into compliance for Russian interests.
    Putin had Hillary by the short hairs.
    Imagine how that could lead to Russia gradually re-forming the USSR.

    This is off the topic, but of equally of larger importance. I cannot understand why no one in the media is talking about the massive medical emergencies being brought here by the “illegal immigrants” two at the top of the list is a strain of TB resistant to drugs and the other is the flesh eating bacteria, also without a cure.
    To me this is a far greater danger than that posed by drugs & criminals

    Why do we just keep beating a dead horse regarding the Democratic Party, The FBI, all the politicians called Republican who are really Democrats and see someone paying for the choices they made when they were suppose to be working for our country not destroying it.

    Dear Gov. Huckabee;
    As some of your commentary said, "They are turning so far left".. if they keep turning left their "ends will meet each other to conform a complete circle. Then we're really in trouble!
    Thanks for the great commentaries as usual.

    If AG Barr fails to act and to criminally indict and convict these traitors to our country, then our Constitutional Republic will soon fall. He is truly our last hope for justice. Millions of Americans are watching to see what happens. If these criminals escape justice then the rule of law is no longer a valid precept. Instead, it will prove without a doubt, what many of us already suspect, that our nation is ruled by lawless tyrants bent on twisting and usurping our laws at will for their own benefit regardless of the damage it wreaks on our country.

    Thanks, Governor. I’m glad to see someone has stepped up to criticize McCabe. Most of the time I can read a face and body language. I watched parts of the 60 Minutes interview and the Today Show interview with Savanna Guthrie. McCabe is a liar and a crook!

    I don’t particularly like Ms Guthrie but she knocked McCabe around pretty good. (Yep, Pelley was too soft.)

    I’m looking forward to more comments from you but even more so, to Lindsay Graham poking holes in McCabe!

Thats the tip of the iceberg I had enough news for the day the Lunatics are running free and without restraint. After watching the news I had to check the security panel to check the time and date today is 2/19 2019 for a moment I thought I was Charleston Heston walking into the Forbidden Zone on the Planet of the Apes where the Statue of Liberty's head was laying on the sand.

    Is it me Mike Huckabee, or do these Trump Haters just seem to get even more hateful and even more mouthy when they have a book to sell? All you have to do in this world is "follow the money". These people are "true to nothing", they stand for "nothing", and their fate is doomed because of the karma they put out into the world. They never seem to learn.

    I was not the least bit surprised of the possibility that Jeff Sessions was a "turncoat" but I have to admit I will be very surprised if it turns out Kelly was the other member of Trump's Cabinet, that would have been on board for the 25th Amendment. Just my take.

    Watched 60 Minutes and thought he was portrayed as "a poor guy just trying to do his job". If you really listened to what he said, he and Rosenstein and other cabinet members tried to overthrow our government!!!! I thought he was rehearsed just like the Professor Ford that lied to Congressional Committee and got away with it. It seems to me "you can lie and get away with it in Washington. "

McCabe STILL can't come up with the real reason for starting the investigation because there IS no reason. I guess the players are under the delusion that we take turns being president. Um-m. Where did they get THAT mistaken idea? I think from the debates, hilary showed the people, she was not FIT to be president. I don't see ANY democrat right now that should be anywhere else but Attica or Sing Sing. Alcatraz maybe?

    The thought, the expression of removal for no reason. The meeting of those guys after the election. That should deeply disturb EVERYONE. Evil people? Oh yes, it is now apparent we have a bunch of them. And for the sake of the republic they need to be removed where they can do no further damage. I don't know how the dems became so infested with narcissists and sociopaths but that is coming from SOMEwhere!

    Andrew McCabe’s newest self-interest activity, his book selling tour, along with others promoting themselves and their deluded and lawless memoirs, showcases the need for accountability, prosecution, and punishment. If these folks were in jail instead of touting their malfeasance as a badge of victory in a two-tier justice system, perhaps others would be discouraged from such behavior.

    Instead, it looks like conservatives continue to get entrapped and destroyed while the liberal left continue to place deep state operatives in high places with impunity.

    Outside the Beltway, though, God-fearing and constitutional patriots are waking up. Praying all this gets them to the voting box and their knees.

    Thank you for all the work you are doing. Keep exposing lies and corruption!

    Why has no one, including you, noted that there is no plausible reason for Putin to prefer Trump over Hillary since she and Bill had received huge bribes from Russian sources for their “fund” and that could be used by Putin to blackmail Hillary into compliance for Russian interests.
    Putin had Hillary by the short hairs.
    Imagine how that could lead to Russia gradually re-forming the USSR.

    If AG Barr fails to act and to criminally indict and convict these traitors to our country, then our Constitutional Republic will soon fall. He is truly our last hope for justice. Millions of Americans are watching to see what happens. If these criminals escape justice then the rule of law is no longer a valid precept. Instead, it will prove without a doubt, what many of us already suspect, that our nation is ruled by lawless tyrants bent on twisting and usurping our laws at will for their own benefit regardless of the damage it wreaks on our country.

    I don’t particularly like Ms Guthrie but she knocked McCabe around pretty good. (Yep, Pelley was too soft.)

    Is it me Mike Huckabee, or do these Trump Haters just seem to get even more hateful and even more mouthy when they have a book to sell? All you have to do in this world is "follow the money". These people are "true to nothing", they stand for "nothing", and their fate is doomed because of the karma they put out into the world. They never seem to learn.

    I was not the least bit surprised of the possibility that Jeff Sessions was a "turncoat" but I have to admit I will be very surprised if it turns out Kelly was the other member of Trump's Cabinet, that would have been on board for the 25th Amendment. Just my take.

    Watched 60 Minutes and thought he was portrayed as "a poor guy just trying to do his job". If you really listened to what he said, he and Rosenstein and other cabinet members tried to overthrow our government!!!! I thought he was rehearsed just like the Professor Ford that lied to Congressional Committee and got away with it. It seems to me "you can lie and get away with it in Washington. "

  • David Arthur Kosinski

    02/19/2019 10:10 AM

    Mike, I hope and pray that those "responsible journalists" keep digging, and digging ......and DIGGING, until the sequence of undeniable facts, prompt justice!!

FIRST, IN BREAKING NEWS: Coming on the heels of Andrew McCabe’s 60 MINUTES interview on Sunday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is expected to leave the Justice Department by mid-March. Gosh, apparently he’s not the person new Attorney General Bill Barr wants as his second-in-command. One can only hope this is just the first step he’s taking in cleaning out a Justice Department that Kim Strassel of the Wall Street Journal describes as “a hot mess of finger-pointing, leaks, planted press narratives, obstruction and extraordinary self-righteousness.”

…………………………..

 

In my most recent commentary about the McCabe interview, I mentioned that former FBI General Counsel James Baker testified last fall that he’d been told Rosenstein had the support of two Cabinet members for the removal of Trump via the 25th Amendment. Some media outlets have mentioned this bit of information as they would say “please pass the butter,” but it’s stunning, especially when one is reminded of who the two Cabinet members reportedly were. So it was important to me to go back and research the timeline on what was reported, when it was said, and by whom, and to lay it out in an easily understandable way, so here goes…


RELATED READING: McCabe follow-up now that 60 MINUTES has aired

The New York Times reported last September 21 that, according to their sources, not only had Rosenstein talked about invoking the 25th Amendment, but he had said he thought he could persuade at least two Cabinet members to do it: John Kelly, then head of Homeland Security, and...JEFF SESSIONS. (Recall that Sessions hired Rosenstein.) That seems like blockbuster news, but, then again, it came from the NYT, which has jumped on numerous reports that turned out to be wrong. Maybe that’s why that detail seems to have disappeared into the ether until now.

 


Commentary continues below advertisement


But now, we know that last October 3 –- after the NYT story –- James Baker testified before Congressional committees, saying, “I had the impression that the deputy attorney general had already discussed this with two members in the President’s Cabinet and that they were...onboard with this concept already.” So that lends some credence to the NYT story. (As I like to say, even a broken clock is right twice a day.)

 

As part of his October 3 testimony, Baker also said, “My recollection is that there were discussions about it over a longer period than the course of one meeting...a couple of days.”

 

Last night on 60 MINUTES, McCabe said that Rosenstein was actually talking about “counting votes, or possible votes” of Cabinet members. He told Scott Pelley that Rosenstein had said he’d had discussions about the number of Cabinet members “and others” needed to invoke the 25th Amendment.

 

Of course, McCabe is not known for being a fountain of truth; he’s being criminally investigated for having withheld information from FBI questioners when it suited his interests. So we can’t just take what he says at face value, any more than we can automatically believe what we read in the New York Times. But the accounts are starting to stack up and tend to reinforce each other.

 

You know, I cringe at some of the President’s tweets, but when he responded to the McCabe interview by calling this activity “illegal and treasonous” and an “illegal coup attempt,” he was on the right track. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsay Graham, who is promising hearings into this to find out what they were doing and will issue subpoenas if necessary, has also said these claims described “an attempted bureaucratic coup” and that this was “one of the most significant moments in American history if it’s true.” I myself have called this a “bloodless coup.” There are other terms for it: “lawyers’ coup,” “soft coup.” In this case, they didn’t get it to the next level, but there are now enough accounts from enough different sources for us to conclude that they were definitely plotting at the highest levels to unseat the President.

 

https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/430446-trump-accuses-disgraced-mccabe-rosenstein-of-committing-illegal-and

 

And if –- IF –- these two then-Cabinet members, John Kelly and Jeff Sessions, are the ones who either might have been open to the idea or were already “onboard” with it (different accounts word it differently), we have to look at the implications. John Kelly, then head of Homeland Security, took the job with Trump to work in the White House as chief of staff. That would have put him in quite a position to find a “weak spot” to use in taking down the President. And Jeff Sessions...well, knowing he might have been open to a plan such as this –- and, repeat, WE DON’T KNOW FOR SURE –- would explain a lot about his performance as attorney general.

 


Commentary continues below advertisement


Rosenstein’s office released a strong denial, but it didn’t really deny much. As you might recall, we parsed it the other day, notably the part that used present-tense “is” instead of past-tense “was.” (Depends on what the definition of “is” is.) It also said he never AUTHORIZED making recordings, when he hasn’t been accused of that, just of talking about doing it.

 

After the 60 MINUTES interview aired, I asked the question, “How on earth does Rod Rosenstein still have his job?” Thankfully, it now appears the Era Of Rosenstein is over, but according to Victor Davis Hanson, speaking on Tucker Carlson’s show, it appears he had created a “pseudo-immunity,” based on the media-driven narrative that if Trump fired him, it was the same as tampering with the Mueller investigation. He pointed out what we’ve said, that Rosenstein and McCabe both were well aware that the 25th Amendment was limited to situations regarding incapacitation, as with Woodrow Wilson after his stroke and perhaps during the last week of FDR’s life. They knew it wasn’t for cases in which they had a President they simply disagreed with. Yet they were talking about overthrowing a duly-elected President.

 

Pelley conducted a ridiculously softball interview. As Hanson noted, there’s so much he could have asked –- about the “insurance policy,” for one thing –- that he never got close to. There was nothing about the FISA applications, either, that were made while Trump was still a candidate. If they did delve into such territory, it was edited out of the final interview. (Keep in mind that editing largely shapes these “news” interviews, positively or negatively. Don Hewitt once bragged that his editing of the Bill and Hillary Clinton “Gennifer Flowers” interview on 60 MINUTES got Bill the nomination.)

 

Hanson suggested something we’ve also discussed, that one possibility is the top echelon at the FBI expected Hillary to be elected and assumed they’d be rewarded for their efforts. Then Trump won. Ruh-roh! Since they’d had no grounds for opening their anti-Trump counterintelligence investigation, they thought, “Oh, (bleep)! How do we cover for this?”

 

Be sure and read Hanson’s comprehensive piece, “Autopsy Of A Dead Coup”:

https://amgreatness.com/2019/02/17/autopsy-of-a-dead-coup/

 

If McCabe was fudging in the 60 MINUTES interview, it was likely in areas that would put him in more legal peril, such as the question of whether he had participated in the conversations about secret recordings, etc. He denied that he had. Remember, he currently is under criminal investigation for lying to FBI investigators.

 

One positive note, from Charles Lane of the Washington Post, is that we finally have what he calls a “full-fledged attorney general.” The Trump administration started out with Jeff Sessions, who immediately recused himself from all things Russia and essentially left the Justice Department in the hands of Rod Rosenstein. Trump certainly wanted Sessions gone, and Rosenstein as well, but any attempt by him to banish them would have been viewed by political opponents as “obstruction,” just as they had viewed Comey’s firing, even though all three richly deserved to be gone. After the midterms and Sessions’ departure, we had Matt Whitaker for a few months as a place-holder, and now we finally have a real, fully-functioning attorney general in Bill Barr.

 

Maybe we should nickname him “Crowbar,” now that Rosenstein has finally been pried out.

…………………….

 

A postscript: Laura Ingraham on her show Monday night noted that for behavior that should be considered out of bounds and even treasonous, some in media are calling McCabe “a patriot.” Get ready; we’ll be hearing a lot more of this drivel. But she also visited with a couple of former FBI officials –- former FBI Assistant Director for Intel Kevin Brock and former deputy Assistant Director of Counterterrorism Terry Turchie –- who considered this behavior to be “egregious” and “a huge embarrassment” that manipulated people into thinking there might have been a legitimate reason for investigating Trump when there wasn’t. McCabe was portrayed as the victim, when he’s out there selling books and doing more damage.

 

To his credit, Turchie went even farther, saying the big problem is that the Democratic Party “turning harder and harder left” is “in itself a major national security risk.” (Thank you!!) We still don’t know who else was involved and whether there might still exist a group appointed by McCabe, etc., before they left. Who, ultimately, orchestrated this?

 

A must-watch interview if you haven’t seen it…

    well first of all. McCabe has zero creds at this point. Likewise the NYT. IMO Rosenstein LOOKS like a criminal and like ACTS like one. Neither of these two guys knows what the 25th says. They had ONE cabinet member and the chief of staff? What does it take to oust the Prez? How many votes does it take? Really? The very mention of removal of a prez for no reason other than Hilary lost is a coup. It is a crime worthy of public hanging. The new AG should operate on that assumption. As for Sessions, I hae my doubts. What does Victor David Hanson think? I will read his article that should be most informative. Oh another question, was John Kelly a cabinet member or a staff member when this "so called" vote was taken. It would appear that democrats in the DOJ and FBI are a crime family and are ACTING like on. As Dan Bongino continues to say "Where is paragraph one?" McCabe STILL can't come up with the real reason for starting the investigation because there IS no reason. I guess the players are under the delusion that we take turns being president. Um-m.
