FBI #2 Tells Senate Dept. Didn’t Ask for More Resources for Russian Probe
But the MSM said otherwise yesterday….
Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe spoke to the Senate Intelligence Committee today since President Donald Trump fired James Comey as FBI director two days ago.
Well, the firing of Comey caused the MSM to go haywire, splashing out reports to heighten conspiracy theories to show the firing was political. For instance, numerous outlets reported the firing came after the FBI requested more resources for its investigation into collusion between Trump and Russia during the campaign.
However, McCabe told the committee that he does not know of any requests. Interesting, huh? Even more interesting? The MSM has skimmed over this crucial part of his testimony.
Of course it was none other than Sheryl Attkisson, who has a fantastic history of reporting the truth without any spin, who brought this detail to light:
Comey’s #2 unequivocally states that, contrary to widespread reports, FBI did not ask for more funding for Trump Russia probe before firing

From The Hill:
McCabe: Unaware of requests for resources.
McCabe said he is unaware of any request for more resources in the Russian investigation, contradicting reports Comey requested more resources from the Department of Justice.
McCabe said the FBI neither traditionally requests resources from the DOJ, nor requests resources from specific agents.

You know what I would have found weird if I already didn’t distrust the MSM? The fact that I had to find the video of these statements from ordinary people instead of the MSM. No, the MSM instead has only concentrated on the statements by McCabe that contradict the White House. Here are a few headlines:
Yesterday, the MSM had these headlines:
I looked over a few of the articles and have not found any corrections. Not even an editor’s note at the end that states McCabe’s testimony contradicts the story.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Didn’t McCabe’s wife run for Congress last year with funding from Terry McCauliffe? I think we need to take a closer look at McCabe. There have been countless reports from agents themselves that they were near mutiny after Comey’s incredible testimony on Hillary last July. Now McCabe is saying that everything was and is fine? Everyone okay with that?
$700,000 from McAuliffe. Trump needs to make a replacement appointment ASAP before this gets a life of its own. McCabe is part of the swamp too.
Why yes; yes she did.
Maybe McAuliffe should be looked at too.
Maybe they should look into Comey’s money laundry.
Ah….looks like a scheme Eric Holder could love no?
Jumping ahead, who in the Administration would not talk Trump out of being interviewed by Lester Holt? Even his greatest supporters know he can be a loose cannon, NBC as a venue makes the situation even worse. Just letting him go is a huge mistake. And if he can’t be convinced of the obvious, then things are really bad.
Yeah, his own mouth continues to be his biggest enemy. Like today, when he blurted out that he was going to fire Comey no matter what – well, it was legal to fire him for any reason, and it’s certainly true (that’s how it goes when just about every boss fires a subordinate) but still, it didn’t serve any purpose and didn’t make him look good to just go and blurt it out like that.
I do think that even though it upset a lot of people, the fast firing of Comey with no warning was actually quite a necessary step, and Trump probably did it because this is the norm in most high profile corporate terminations where there is potential unpleasantness afoot. If Comey would have had warning, he would have instantly been on the phone to every Democrat Senator, telling them he was right on the cusp of a huge breakthrough and Trump was trying to stop him. I don’t doubt that he would have said and done anything to keep his job – but once he was fired in public with no notice, there was no chance for any of those things to work. He’s still trying them, a bit, but it’s too late for them to be anything more than a revenge play on Comey’s part.
Trump gave Commie Comey long months to reform.
Hopefully, Trump, and his team, can unwind the ball of yarns without triggering catastrophic anthropogenic national and global warming.
…let alone the dreaded man-pig Al Gore-ball warming…..
In this item, I see these—
“McCabe told the committee that he does not know of any requests.”
“McCabe said he is unaware of any request for more resources in the Russian investigation.”
and I see these—
“Comey’s #2 unequivocally states that, contrary to widespread reports, FBI did not ask for more funding.”
“Acting FBI Director McCabe denies there was a request for additional resources for Russian investigation.”
Obviously, the two sets of statements are not equivalent.
Again with the probes.
Methinks McCabe is just another loser, Clinton Flunkie!
