It’s bad enough that the investigation into alleged Russian involvement in U.S. internal affairs has been upended by top Obama advisor Susan Rice’s evident abuse of intelligence resources for political warfare against Team Trump. Now, the FBI is entrusting oversight of a beefed up investigative unit focused on those allegations to a man deeply implicated in such warfare: Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
What could possibly go wrong?
While McCabe was overseeing an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, his wife – a Virginia Democratic state senate candidate – took large campaign contributions from Hillary fundraisers. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has expressed concern about McCabe’s involvement with the author of a phony dossier designed to smear Trump. Reportedly, McCabe also has inveighed repeatedly against Trump with top FBI managers.
Far from getting additional, politically charged responsibilities, Andrew McCabe should get fired.
