Chaos and confusion continued to cause havoc at the Deep State this week, with new transcripts showing former acting FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe claimed that he “made the decision” to remove Peter Strzok from Robert Mueller’s legal team.
“Former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe claimed he ‘made the decision’ to remove Peter Strzok from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team in the summer of 2017 after a series of anti-Trump text messages surfaced between the former FBI special agent and another official with whom he was romantically involved,” reports Fox News.
“It was long thought that Mueller had Strzok removed after the texts between him and Lisa Page were uncovered. But McCabe’s apparent role was revealed in a newly released transcript from his House Judiciary Committee interview on Dec. 21, 2017,” adds the article.
“They said they had a very important matter for me to review and they needed me to come across the street and talk to them that day, which was unusual,” McCabe told lawmakers in July 2017. “I made the decision to remove him from the investigation that evening.”
McCabe made national headlines in March when he baselessly asserted that the now-debunked ‘Steele Dossier’ was “accurately represented” when obtaining FISA warrants against the Trump campaign.
“I do believe that we adequately notified the FISA Court of the information we were using, and what we thought of the information,” McCabe said over the weekend.
“I think everyone was satisfied that we had represented that accurately and adequately in the package,” he added. “I do think we represented it adequately”
McCabe was abruptly fired from the DOJ in March 2018 just days before his scheduled retirement from the agency; asserting he was removed from the bureau due to the Trump administration’s “ongoing war with the FBI.”
