Suspicions that “the fix was in” at the DOJ and FBI regarding Hillary’s email case seem even more plausible now that more allegations have surfaced about then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. He is said to have ordered a “stand-down” in 2015 after the New York Times first ran a story about Hillary “possibly” (ha) breaking rules by using a personal email account for State Department business.

Remember when the story of Hillary’s personal server used for State Department business broke in March of 2015? Hillary claimed she’d had no classified email at all going through that server, but lots of chummy email about yoga and Chelsea’s wedding and talks back and forth with Bill (who, it was noted at the time, didn’t use email). Then some of it was classified but not marked classified. Then some of it was marked classified, but it was impossible to know how much since 33,000 emails were deleted (even after being subpoenaed) in ways that almost ensured they would be unrecoverable, and phones were physically destroyed. Then Hillary’s enablers got immunity. Then Hillary herself wasn’t indicted because then-FBI Director James Comey said she didn’t intend to break the law, when he knew good and well that intention has nothing to do with that law.

Just trying to catch you up. But it was in 2015 that the NYT story sparked an investigation at the FBI’s Washington Field Office into whether Hillary was using a private server to transmit classified information. Sources tell reporter Sara Carter that McCabe was overseas when he found out about this and sent electronic communications “expressing his displeasure” and steering agents away from the investigation, apparently trying to nip it in the bud. If that’s what he did, it’s obstruction of justice.

In light of this, it’s kind of funny (though I doubt McCabe is laughing) that he now faces possible perjury charges for lying about media leaks done to counter accusations that he had “stood down” another time, again to help Hillary, in 2016. In that case, according to FBI Inspector General Michael Horowitz, he was trying to appear unbiased with a story to the Wall Street Journal that he'd pushed back when pressured by higher-ups to ease up on investigating the Clinton Foundation. He’d been criticized in the WSJ for failing to recuse himself from all things Hillary because of a huge conflict of interest stemming from curiously huge Clinton-sourced donations made to his wife’s unsuccessful state senate campaign. Of course, whether he actually pushed back or not, we can infer from this incident that the fix HAD been in for Hillary –- if not from McCabe, then from people higher up! And the acting AG at the time, Sally Yates, would almost certainly have had knowledge and consent of such a directive.

So, did he or didn’t he call for an easing up on either Clinton investigation? It’s been like pulling teeth for Congressional investigators and watchdog organizations like Judicial Watch to get all of McCabe’s text messages and emails from the FBI, but Horowitz reportedly has them all. (How in the heck does he get these things? He had all the Peter Strzok-Lisa Page texts when we were being told they were unobtainable, and now this.) Horowitz has already issued a criminal referral on McCabe for lying to investigators but is still looking into the FBI’s role in the so-called investigation of Hillary’s use of a private email server. The DOJ won’t say whether or not McCabe actually did “stand down” on either of these occasions, and the Inspector General is not going to comment until his investigation is over. For that, we have to wait until probably some time in May.

    I'm just a regular citizen, no political background, just a regular Joe...well Josephine. I hate the way the left (mostly) is treating our president. I don't usually follow political issues, but I voted for this man for a reason and he's doing a great job. I am so impressed that he can take the daily beat-downs and still go strong regardless. I don't know if he can do it for four years, though or maybe eight. Something's got to change. Here's what I don't understand-how can everything he does or has done go under such scrutiny, people just looking for a way to trip him up. We KNOW Hillary the Pig has committed treasonable acts and she still has her freedom to continue to bash the president. All the barbarians that have helped her to cover up these acts have committed some sort of crime, yet they're still walking around, and even spreading lies through published books. The lies are in WRITING and they still don't have to answer for the wrong they committed. I'm afraid for this country. I'm afraid for my grandchildren. I hope Donald Trump can turn this country around to the great nation it once was. He's on the right road, we just need to dump the rubbish so he has a clearer path.

    My prayers, and the prayers of many others, that this corruption be exposed are being answered. I'm now praying for equal justice under the law.

    Until each one of them are held accountable for these actions, this is all just chatter. The American people would like to know WHEN indictments will be seen and arrests will be made. We have been hearing about this mess for years yet NO ONE has been held accountable, been arrested, tried or convicted.

    Outrageous! When will any of these Deep State bottom dwellers be held accountable for their criminal behavior? (Including Hitlery, of course.)

    We just have to face it that the fix was in. It was viewed by many as Hilary’s rightful turn to be President. There are apparently many in the DOJ, FBI snd CIA that would have done anything, and I do mean anything, to stop him from being President. It continues. Dems have no ideas, their mantra is still to find some reason, any will do, truthful or not, to get rid of Mr. Trump. I have traveled to many countries. I have seen how the people in socialist countries live. I am including Western Europe. Even in the prosperous countries they have a much lower standard of living than do the average people in this country. Quite frankly, our people we deem to be in poverty live better than many average prople some of these countries. Progressives don’t want to know the truth. They want a utopia and that does not exist, except for heaven. They are purely emotional in their responses. They have held back minorities and the poor far more than conservatives, because that gives them power over people. Conservatives, on the whole are much more compassionate. They are just quiet about it. I have heard people who think Trump is a nazi, but which party is it that wants to have control over every facet of peoples’ lives?
