Following John Durham’s indictment, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe downplayed the story. Instead, he claimed the findings are “disappointing a lot of Republicans.” He says the prosecutor found “essentially not much” about the investigation’s beginnings. McCabe appeared on CNN Thursday.
“There’s really very little here relevant to what he supposedly was hired to investigate,” McCabe said. “He’s getting pretty far afield from the FBI. In fact, the recent indictment and these subpoenas really hold the FBI more in the position of victim rather than subject of an investigation. So it’s a bizarre turn of events, and it’s one that I’m sure is disappointing a lot of Republicans.”
However, just over a week ago, current FBI Director Christopher Wray said the opposite. Notably, Wray admitted the investigation was uncharacteristic of the FBI before the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
“What that inspector general report describes by certain FBI personnel I consider to be unacceptable and unrepresentative of the FBI that I see every day,” Wray said. While he worked for the bureau for four years after Sept. 11, he took a break. Then, he joined the bureau again in 2017. Wray went on to say that he believes another botched investigation “could never happen again.” However, he put in over 40 corrective measures to ensure that it won’t.
Meanwhile, the FBI fired McCabe from the bureau in 2018. He’s worked for CNN since 2019.

Controversial Remarks by Progressive Lawmaker Sparks Intra-Party Clash over Hamas’ Alleged Sexual Violence
In a recent television appearance, Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal stirred controversy and faced intense criticism from fellow Democrats for her remarks seemingly downplaying reported sexual violence by Hamas terrorists against Israeli women.
The contentious comments come amid disturbing accounts of rape and brutal assaults following Hamas’ surprise attack on Israel on October 7, with prominent Democrats expressing outrage and demanding unequivocal condemnation.
According to reports from Fox News, Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz from Florida called for a forceful denouncement of sexual violence and condemning any attempt to create moral equivalence between Hamas and the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). The accusations of rape and sexual assault have sparked concern about the well-being of Israelis still held hostage by Hamas.
During her appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Jayapal faced scrutiny for not outright condemning Hamas for the alleged acts, instead emphasizing the broader impact of war on women.
Furthermore, the comments drew swift criticism, with Representative Ritchie Torres of New York insisting on the need for unequivocal condemnation of sexual violence against Israeli women.
Despite Jayapal’s history of advocating against sexual violence, her recent remarks have led to a significant intra-party clash, with Democrats challenging the notion of finding a balance or moral equivalence in addressing such sensitive matters.
The controversy underscores the complexities that arise when lawmakers navigate geopolitical conflicts while upholding principles of justice and human rights. As tensions escalate within the party, the incident highlights the broader challenges of maintaining a unified front on contentious global issues.
