Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
You read that right: The former Deputy Director of the FBI says blatant money laundering by a political campaign is just fine. – You don’t have to believe me – here he is in his own words, as he attempts to rationalize to Fredo Cuomo why he’s slamming President Trump’s statement that he would listen to a foreign source who came to him with information about his opponent, while at the same time defending the fact that Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid $11 million for the Steele Dossier during 2016:
“Not at all, Chris. There’s no equivalence between those two examples,” McCabe responded. “To openly invite foreign intelligence officers, representatives from a hostile foreign government to steal information, to acquire opposition research in anyway, in any illegal way that they might do that and to present it to you is one thing. For a campaign to hire a law firm, an American law firm who then turns around and hires an American research company that then contracts out with a foreign individual, that is not illegal,” McCabe emphasized.
Folks, let’s be real about what Clinton and the DNC did: They laundered money. Knowing that directly hiring a foreign agent – Steele – to coordinate with other foreign agents from England, Italy, Australia and yes, even Russia to compile dirt on their opposition would be a heinous violation of myriad U.S. laws, they attempted to hide that activity by funneling the money through not one, but two different cut-outs. This is what the FBI in the days before McCabe/Comey/Obama would have called a classic case of money laundering, plain and simple.
But last night, the disgraced ex-FBI Deputy Director said that hey, it’s just peachy.
I have waited all day long for someone, anyone, in the American news media to wake up to what McCabe really said to Cuomo last night, without result.
So there, I’ve said it.
What a dumpster fire the FBI has become, thanks to skunks and snakes like McCabe and Comey. God help us.
That is all.
