In a just world, fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wouldn’t be making the media rounds this week hawking an upcoming book that provides details into how he helped orchestrate an attempted coup against a duly elected president.
If our system of justice hadn’t been completely co-opted, politicized, and weaponized against the people by Barack Hussein Obama, the only camera McCabe would be posing for is the one at the federal prison taking his mugshot before beginning a lengthy sentence for sedition.
But there was McCabe on CNN Tuesday, feeding America one line of bull after another, admitting to his offenses and clinging to the lie that POTUS Donald Trump is a Manchurian candidate working on behalf of Mother Russia.
“Do you still believe the president could be a Russian asset?” CNN‘s Anderson Cooper asked McCabe Tuesday night.
“I think it’s possible,” he responded. “I think that’s why we started our investigation. And I’m really anxious to see where [special counsel and former FBI] Director [Robert] Mueller concludes that.”
But Mueller won’t conclude that. One, it’s a fabricated narrative. And two, the former top lawyer for the Trump White House, John Dowd — who has seen everything Mueller has (and knows what he doesn’t have) — has said that the special counsel won’t be bringing any ‘Russian collusion’ charges.
When you’re so used to telling lies — and McCabe is, which is one reason why he was fired, lest we never forget — it’s easy to continue telling them. That is especially true when you’re not being held accountable for your untruths by the Democratic Party’s propaganda wing, otherwise known as the “mainstream” media (MSM).
As CNSNews reported:
Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe in March 2018, just before McCabe could begin receiving his retirement benefits. He was fired after the Justice Department inspector-general found that McCabe made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor, including under oath, on multiple occasions.
But more to McCabe’s allegation that he ‘believes’ POTUS Trump ‘could be’ a Russian asset to this day, the fact is the fired former FBI official knows that isn’t true. What’s more, he knows that the real Russian collusion occurred during the Obama administration. He knows that the real Russian assets were Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The MSM clowns don’t want Americans to remember that time when Obama promised Russian President Vladimir Putin that he’d “have more flexibility” to put his own country more at risk by unilaterally reducing our nuclear arsenal.
The year was 2012. The event was a nuclear disarmament summit in Seoul in March of that year.
Obama was caught on a hot mic talking to Russian President (at the time) Dimitri Medvedev. “This is my last election,” Obama said. “After my election, I have more flexibility.”
“I understand,” Medvedev responds. “I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
Translation: ‘After the election, I will have a freer hand it putting America and Americans more at risk of a nuclear first strike.’
Sounds like ‘collusion’ to me, Andy.
Who can forget how she botched the infamous “Russia reset?”
But beyond that embarrassment, it was Hillary who played a key role — the key role? — in ensuring approval of Russian state-owned atomic energy firm Rosatom in acquiring 20 percent of all strategic U.S. uranium reserves in 2010. Uranium, by the way, is a strategic asset because it is essential in the manufacture of nuclear weapons.
In 2015 no less an MSM organ than The New York Times published details of how tens of millions of dollars flowed to the Clinton Foundation as the deal was being negotiated.
As reported by Liberty Headlines:
A new Department of Commerce investigation into whether imported uranium poses a national security risk serves as a reminder that Bill and Hillary Clinton played a role in reducing the availability of U.S.-owned uranium stores.
Domestic production of uranium is at or near an all-time low, at 2.44 million pounds, compared to a high of 43.7 million pounds in 1980.
And CNBC reports that “Only 7 percent of the uranium delivered to U.S. nuclear power plants last year was produced in the United States.”
For military uses and domestic consumption combined, reported Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, “our production of uranium necessary for military and electric power has dropped from 49% of our consumption to 5%.”
Safe and effective supplies of uranium obviously are of key importance, both for U.S. nuclear deterrence forces and for domestic energy supply.
And just where is the vast majority of our uranium now coming from?
You guessed it: Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
“Russia and Kazakhstan together provided 38 percent of uranium used by American reactors in 2016,” Liberty Headlines noted further.
While McCabe lies to Americans about POTUS Trump being an “asset” of Russia, he — and his MSM enablers — are covering up the fact that in reality, it was his former boss Obama and one of his functionaries, Hillary Clinton, who were real assets to Putin.
