There’s been a lot of buzz lately about secret societies in the FBI conspiring to destroy the Trump. This might sound like the ramblings of a conspiracy theorist with an armadillo shell on his head to block out the CIA brainwave scanners. But, if this report is to be believed, that’s not such a crazy notion at all.
Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe asked to speak privately with White House chief of staff Reince Priebus following a February 2017 intelligence briefing. McCabe said he asked for the meeting to tell Priebus that “everything” in a New York Times story authored by Michael S. Schmidt, Mark Mazzetti, and Matt Apuzzo was “bullsh-t.”
As if anything the New York Times publishes isn’t a steaming pile of bullsh-t.
Priebus asked if the FBI could say publicly what he had just told him. McCabe said he’d have to check, according to the book. McCabe reportedly called back and said he couldn’t do anything about it.
This is where it gets good.
“Now, a week later, CNN was airing a breaking news story naming Priebus. According to ‘multiple U.S. officials,’ the network said, ‘the FBI rejected a White House request to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Donald Trump’s associates and Russians known to U.S. intelligence.’
Priebus was stunned by the implication that he was pressuring law enforcement. Had he been set up? Why was the FBI leaking this information when one of its top officials had initiated the conversation?”
Now, you might be thinking all of this could just be a case of D.C. insiders who got a little too gossipy after a few appletinis. Except this just happened today:
FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, a frequent target of public attacks from President Donald Trump, is stepping down immediately, NBC News reported.
Well, whaddaya know.
So, what we’ve got here appears to be a case of a shady character trying to bait the Donald’s administration. If Trump comes across as pulling a Watergate-style coverup, pinning Russian collusion on the Donald becomes worlds easier. Except now that plan is a failure and McCabe is on his way out. The timing of which is awfully suspicious.
We’re over a year into these claims of Trump being a Russian plant. So far, not a single piece of evidence has come to light. There’s no selfies of Trump and Putin at Stalin’s tomb. No evidence of the Trololo song in Trump’s search history. No picture of Trump squatting in an Adidas tracksuit while chugging a bottle of Stolichnaya.
After this deceptive attempt to boot the Trump, it’s probably time to finally admit the Russia narrative is a giant nothingburger.
