The McCabe report

Andrew McCabe did what he could to get out in front of the DOJ Inspector General's report. It does not appear to have done him much good:
Andrew McCabe, onetime acting FBI director, leaked a self-serving story to the press and later lied about it to his boss and federal investigators, prompting a stunning fall from grace that ended in his firing last month, says a bombshell report released Friday by the Justice Department's internal watchdog.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz, appointed by President Barack Obama, had been reviewing FBI and DOJ actions leading up to the 2016 presidential election.

The report, handed over to Congress on Friday and obtained by Fox News, looked at a leak to The Wall Street Journal about an FBI probe of the Clinton Foundation.

The report says that McCabe authorized the leak and then misled investigators about it, leaking in a way that did not fall under a "public interest" exception.
And where will the trail lead? Where will it end?

Lying under oath sounds like a crime.

Interested to see if this anointed FBI angel will face any charges, or just get swept under the rug with all the other Obama era crimes.

Hopefully with him, Comey, and Rosenstein all behind bars for perjury and possibly obstruction of justice.

It'll end with them on The Martha Stewart Show.

Lying under oath is not a crime if you are a part of the Deep State.

True that.

In ideological states The Party is above the law, while its opponents are criminals just for existing. Here we are.

How are American blacks going to survive the shame Barack Obama has cast upon them?

It doesn't get much more ideological than Mainland China. The Gang of Four were above the law, then they weren't.

There are laws and then there are laws. They're above some laws, not others. The law of gravity, the law of conservation of momentum, etc., still apply. The state motto of Virginia seems applicable.

Eh, they're used to it.

Can't be hit in the face by pie if you're significantly shorter than the rest of the crowd you're standing in.

By being unaware of it.

Way back when Tom Hanks did a video where he celebrated George Washington as the great founder of the nation, and Obama's election as its ultimate accomplishment. It occurred to me that it could also be the beginning and the end. Washington founds the American Revolution and Obama brings it to an end.

Fuck Tom Hanks

A storm has arrived of some kind. Pence has been whisked away from a Latin American summit to a secure location.

Nick Saban is the greatest college football coach ever. But... he frankly sucks at QB evaluation. Its is lone weakness. He's stuck in 1975. For evidence... I point to the fact that he left Jalen Hurts as the starter with Tua on the bench all year.. in spit of the fact that everyone.. including his team.. knew Tua was better and was in fact far out performing Jalen in practice.

This was a huge mistake on Trump's part. Epic. There is no sugar coating it. There is no but what if BS about it. It was a huge mistake.

Pointing out Saban's flaw doesn't make me not an Alabama Fan. It doesn't mean I don't love Nick Saban.

Pointing out that Trump has done something profoundly stupid.. does not mean I don't like Trump.

The people in the stands day-dreaming about being a big-time QB imagine themselves throwing perfect spiral after perfect spiral. The guys who actually try out for the team and make it onto the field throw ill-advised wobbly ducks now and then, especially when their O-Line sucks.

I noted 3 lies and possibly a 4th deception from McCabe under oath but also lied not under oath, from what I listen to meaning I listen directly to these hearings online.

While I understand this is an important matter, I am not buying the media narrative or wash job. I view this as a side show or some kind of a petty nit pick distraction maybe, maybe not.
