During a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe faced a harsh grilling by Republicans, including Chairman Lindsey Graham, who wasn’t letting McCabe evade his questions.

The hearing is part of the Committee’s probe into the origins of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane counterintelligence investigation into now-debunked allegations Trump’s campaign was in contact with Russia.

Tuesday’s hearing came to a head when McCabe painted a glowing picture of fired FBI agent Peter Strzok. “Senator, my experiences working with Peter Strzok, yes, I believe he was fair in the decisions that he made and the work that he did,” McCabe testified.

Strzok was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team in 2017 and was fired by the bureau in 2018 over his anti-Trump emails and text messages with former FBI Attorney Lisa Page. Still, McCabe insists Strzok wasn’t politically motivated and did good work at the FBI.

“We had conversations on the evening that it was first shown the text messages between Mr. Strzok and Ms. Page and we made the decision to remove him and we reached out to Director Mueller’s team and they agreed with that. That’s my recollection.”

He continued, “The work that I saw Peter do on this case and other cases from that work and the decisions that he made, I did not see any indications of political bias.”

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
