CNN Hires Former FBI #2 Andy McCabe, Who Was Fired For Leaking And Lying


Another Ex-Obama official has joined the ranks of anti-Trump cable news punditry, this time disgraced FBI #2 Andrew McCabe, who was fired for leaking information to the media – then lying about it at least four times, including under oath.

Now, McCabe – who is suing the DOJ and FBI over what he claims was a “politically motivated” firing  just days before he was set to retire with full benefits,” will join former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper at CNN.

Succinctly put by The Federalist‘s Mollie Hemmingway:

McCabe authorized an FBI spokesman to tell the Wall Street Journal‘s Devlin Barrett – just days before the 2016 US election, that the FBI hadn’t put the brakes on an investigation into the Clinton Foundation – at a time in which McCabe was coming under fire for his wife taking a $467,500 campaign contribution from Clinton associate, Terry McAuliffe. 

As noted above, McCabe then lied about the leak at least four times and was subsequently fired over it.

McCabe claimed that his boss, also-fired former FBI Director James Comey, was well aware of the leaks. Comey shot back on ABC’s The Viewcalling McCabe a liar.

Comey was asked by host Megan McCain how he thought the public was supposed to have “confidence” in the FBI amid revelations that McCabe lied about the leak.

It’s not okay. The McCabe case illustrates what an organization committed to the truth looks like,” Comey said, adding

“Good people lie … I still believe Andrew McCabe is a good person but the inspector general found he lied,” noting that there are “severe consequences” within the DOJ for doing so.

In response McCabe’s attorney, Michael R. Bromwich (flush with cash from the disgraced Deputy Director’s half-million dollar legal defense GoFundMe campaign), said at the time:

“In his comments this week about the McCabe matter, former FBI Director James Comey has relied on the Inspector Genera’s (OIG) conclusions in their report on Mr. McCabe. In fact, the report fails to adequately address the evidence (including sworn testimony) and documents that prove that Mr. McCabe advised Director Comey repeatedly that he was working with the Wall Street Journal on the stories in question…”

Of course, CNN’s newest contributor may find himself in further hot water. As the Washington Examiner‘s Jerry Dunleavy notes:

McCabe is likely still being scrutinized by Horowitz as part of the DOJ watchdog’s investigation of allegations of abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The surveillance warrant applications targeting Trump associate Carter Page required the approval of top members of the FBI, the DOJ, and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, and the current and former government officials involved will likely face tough questions over their actions. McCabe was involved in the FISA approval process.

Former FBI Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson testified to the House Judiciary and Oversight committees last year that McCabe and then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates approved the application before it got to her desk, an unusual process that led her to not second-guess her higher-ups. –Washington Examiner

This… is CNN.

Of course, they’ve been at the fake news game for a while…

  1. CNN is the civilian side of the CIA/FBI crooks who are ready to put their “spin” on information being released to the public about their treasonous actions against a sitting US President. They covered up Clinton’s emails that had Auto Copies of Everything forwarded to Foreign Countries undermining the USA, tried to “Fix” 2016 Election & Spying for purposes of Blackmail of Judges, Congress etc. and to “unseat” our duly elected President by a phony Russion Collusion plot. Yes, these are the people I trust to give me the Truth. CNN is just another CIA Operation & they’re fighting to get their power over America back from the President & the American people. Too late – we know too much to Ever go back to “ignoring” the attempt to turn America into a Police State with Dictators who make decisions based on what’s best for them & the hell with us!


  3. Ha ha ha ha ha, a match made in heaven! Rag tag mag and another lying pos …. should work out great unless of course mccabe learns to tell the truth…NOT!!! They deserve each other! He just went from one calamity to another! PERFECT UNION FOR LOSERS!!!

  4. Not surprised about this, He will fit right in with the pack. At Clinton News Network. I guess Comey, Strock and Page will be the next hires.

  5. Maybe they will get even lower network ratings now . . .
    Gee, I wonder who pays their bills? How is it that a numb-scull network can still earn ANY advertising dollars enough to still exist? They are reportedly ‘paying’ this traitorous creep millions, like they do all the other traitors they’ve hired; and their on-air “personalities” also make huge fortunes . . .
    It is hard to understand where all that money comes from.
    It must be Russia!
    Having learned what ‘kind’ of network they are, their support is most definitely un-American.
