FBI’s McCabe Cancels House Intel Appearance As Story Breaks About Top DOJ Official Working For Democrat Group

Claiming there had been a simple scheduling error, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe bowed out of an appearance before the House Intelligence Committee scheduled for Tuesday.

McCabe was originally expected to be grilled about senior FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok’s role in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

The announcement came as reports of a senior Justice Department official involved in the Russia investigation was revealed to have close ties to the Russian-aligned, Democrat-funded opposition research outfit that put together the phony Trump dossier.

Coincidence? As Alan Moore once wrote, ‘There is no coincidence … Only the illusion of coincidence.’

In fact, some sources had viewed the cancellation of McCabe’s appearance as “something far more sinister.”

The reference to Ohr involves Nellie H. Ohr, wife of Justice Department official, Bruce G. Ohr, who was demoted after it was revealed he had concealed meetings with individuals behind the dossier.

His wife, Nellie, worked for the opposition research firm Fusion GPS just last year.

Sources said to be on the lookout for subpoenas to compel McCabe’s testimony.

Within moments however, the Department of Justice claimed McCabe’s cancellation was nothing more than a scheduling snafu, due to somebody transposing dates on the calendar.

According to Fox News, McCabe is now set to appear before the Committee next week. A congressional source told the Daily Caller they found the scheduling excuse “very hard to believe.”

Much of what comes from the FBI and Department of Justice these days falls in that same category – ‘very hard to believe.’

Perhaps that’s why the President claimed the FBI had been left ‘in tatters’ after James Comey’s departure.

Is there something ‘sinister’ behind McCabe’s cancellation? Does he have an Ohr problem? Share your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below.

  • are there core problems at the FBI? Breaking the law at the FBI is a career enhancement. The FBI just moves them to another department !!! When jail should be their next resident...their complicity is a stain on this countries justice...

  • Everyone of those people, including those women claiming sexual harassment by ANYONE, needs to be hooked up to a lie detector and that connected to a big screen on C-Span. Every last one of those named as investigators, lawyers, agents, directors, and on and on need to be vetted for truth or dare. They cannot enter the chamber and set down unless they are hooked up to a detector and screen. It will only take four questions or less for a laymen to know when anyone of them are lying.

  • McCabe is one of those people who should be fired or at least reduced to basic FBI in Nome Alaska or some other backwater.

  • McCabe has many more problems than the Ohr matter. He has a lot to answer for, including the refusal to turn over documents subpoenaed by the Intelligence Committee.

  • Yeeesss....the FBI has decided that they are their own branch of government now...they absolutely don't have to answer questions from the Congress and certainly don't take their orders from the executive branch any-longer...they'll just tell everyone to pound sand...period!

  • Sounds like the novel by Sinclair Lewis entitled, "It Can't Happen Here." The Democratic party has truly become frightening. It's hard to swallow that the entire group behind this "nothing burger" might not have to face justice. One can only hope.

  • Why has this corrupt scumbag not resigned? Or announced a well-deserved retirement? Or been fired? He has an Ohr problem and a Page problem and a Strzok problem and a McAuliffe problem and a Comey problem and a Hellary problem and a Steele problem and a Fusion GPS problem and a FISA problem. This list goes on and on.

    • What good would that do the whole FBI agency is corrupted across this nation, everyone needs to be fired...and then stop hiring indoctrinated fools from the halls of academia...!

  • IT IS PAST TIME THAT SESSIONS FIRES THIS MAN AND MULLER AND ALL THE ATTORNEYS HE HIRED, THEY ARE TRYING TO TEAR THIS COUNTRY UP AND SHOULD KEY IN ON THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TERROR CAMPS IN THE USA, GOOGLE IT. AND SHOULD ENFORCE, PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, THAT WAS PASSED IN 1952. WE HAVE VERY SERIOUS PROBLEMS IN THIS COUNTRY MORE IMPORTANT THAN SOMEONE BEING PATTED ON THE BUTT. THE TERROR CAMPS IS A PARTIAL LIST.
