“The inner circle of James Comey and Andrew McCabe on the 7th Floor of FBI HQ has flipped, according to high level Justice Department officials,” True Pundit reports.
According to Department of Justice (DOJ) sources top level officials are being questioned by the Inspector General’s Office, testifying about their knowledge of FBI leaders James Comey and Andrew McCabe.
After the Inspector General, a grand jury could likely follow.
Assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division Bill Priestap is fully cooperating with the Justice Department according to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence member Chris Stewart.
Comey and McCabe actively sought to interfere in the 2016 Presidential Election on behalf of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump by orchestrating the 2016-2017 fake “Russian Conspiracy Operation.”
Priestap answered directly to McCabe. One of his subordinates, FBI Counterintelligence Deputy, Peter Strzok, is also cooperating with the Inspector General. As is Lisa Page, a former FBI attorney.
McCabe recently took in over $500,000 on a GoFundMe campaign to pay for his legal fees. One high-ranking Justice official said, the “last guy I would have thought would cooperate is cooperating,” True Pundit reports.
Essentially, the investigation into candidate Donald Trump was “a counterintelligence operation,” which began in July 2016.
In his March 20, 2017 congressional testimony, James Comey was asked why he did not inform Congress about the counterintelligence operation. Comey replied that he did not tell Congress that he was investigating then candidate Donald Trump because the Director of Counterintelligence–Priestap– told him he shouldn’t.
But– congressional oversight protocol requires the Director of the FBI to inform the Intelligence Committee of any counterintelligence operations it is performing. Not telling them, according to FBI Agent Peter Strzok, was what he explained in his text messages: an “insurance policy.”
