Sen. Blackburn: McCabe is ‘beginning to do a little shaking in his boots…fearful of perjuring himself.’

Marsha Blackburn Senator

Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn said the American people deserve to know the truth about the FBI’s unscrupulous investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign and his presidency.

Blackburn, a Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the answers to what really happened during the investigation and those senior bureau officials involved may reside with former Deputy Directory Andrew McCabe. McCabe, who is now an analyst on CNN, was fired by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in 2018 for lying multiple times to DOJ investigators. He is now refusing a subpoena by the committee to testify over his fear of COVID-19.

“I think [McCabe’s] beginning to do a little shaking in his boots,” Blackburn said. “He is fearful of saying something and then perjuring himself, and he knows that Durham report is coming very soon.”

The Senate Judiciary Committee had to delay the hearing with McCabe last week, after he refused to testify. Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-SC, had McCabe, among a long list of others to testify before the Nov. 3 election.

Blackburn pointed out that McCabe’s refusal to speak to the Senate Judiciary members is revealing considering former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates and most recently former FBI Director James Comey was willing to testify.

She said, even though they failed to remember significant details because “they all were like, Hear No Evil, see, See No Evil” it was McCabe who may have the answers to what truly took place inside the bureau because he was connected to all the players.

I think [McCabe’s] beginning to do a little shaking in his boots,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn. “He is fearful of saying something and then perjuring himself, and he knows that Durham report is coming very soon.”

Blackburn pointed out that she didn’t buy the excuses of those who testified that they couldn’t either remember anything or were unaware of certain circumstances.

For example, she told me, former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, who was charged with the Russia investigation and also testified before the committee, “writes in his book, that he briefed Comey on what they were doing.”

“Here’s the thing, somebody cooked up this plot,” she said, referring the attempt to coup President Trump by propagating lies in the media and then a concocted FBI investigation into Trump’s campaign and presidency.

“Somebody gave the order to carry it out, and somebody did the dirty work,” said Blackburn. “And if you’ve got the top three saying, we didn’t know anything was going on, and Strzok saying we were out here doing this, that and the other. Well, McCabe has to know some things, he knows coming to us he would be under oath.”

I told Blackburn her suspicion about McCabe is backed up by several sources I’ve spoken with over the past month who say McCabe is at the center of Durham’s investigation.

In fact, the sources that I’ve spoken to have referred to information that McCabe was aware of, like the fact that the FBI’s primary sub-source, “in that dossier, the dirty dossier” was a suspected Russian spy that the U.S. was monitoring since 2009.

Everyday more and more evidence reveals that there was extensive malfeasance inside the FBI during the Obama administration. There’s also enough evidence to show that the investigations into Trump’s 2016 campaign advisors, like Carter Page, former National Security advisor Michael Flynn and George Papadopolous, are plagued with problems and were used to target Trump in what many have called an attempted coup of a duly elected president.

The most frustrating aspect of the nearly four years of investigations, including the Justice Department’s Inspector General’s investigation, is that no one has actually been held accountable for the malfeasance uncovered, stated Blackburn.

I agree. I said during my podcast that I constantly hear from listeners and readers, “will there ever be justice? will anyone be held accountable.”

I don’t know. But without it, our country is facing a great detriment.

The bureaucracy should not be more powerful or have more leniency than the American people in the eyes of justice.

DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence

In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”

Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.

“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.

The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
