The Greatest Scandal in the History of America Remains Hidden

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath.
And yet, America owes him a big thank-you.
McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016.
There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department played in spying on the Trump campaign and leaks of classified information for partisan purposes.
In short, what is arguably the greatest scandal in the history of America remains mostly hidden from the public. That shroud of secrecy piles one scandal on top of another.

Fortunately, the McCabe reminder is a timely one, coming on the same day that William Barr was confirmed as the new attorney general. Barr is just the man to get to the bottom of the unprecedented plot to swing an election and later to remove a duly-elected president.
Barr, who was AG under the first President Bush, also will oversee special counsel Robert Mueller’s seemingly endless probe and, hopefully, bring it to a conclusion.
McCabe is talking because he’s peddling a book and, just as Comey the Snake before him, is aiming his sales pitch at anti-Trumpers. He used an interview with CBS to offer more details of a discussion within the FBI and Justice Department to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.
McCabe said that the effort took shape immediately after Trump fired Comey in May 2017 and that numerous people were involved, including Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
McCabe’s version of events dovetails with a New York Times report last September that Rosenstein met with McCabe and others and offered to wear a wire in meetings with Trump to get incriminating information, a hint that McCabe was the prime source for that story.
Rosenstein, through an aide, denied the account Thursday, just as he did last September.
But his repeated insistence that McCabe’s tale is “inaccurate and factually incorrect” remains unpersuasive and is undercut by the fact that, a week after the meeting in question, Rosenstein appointed Mueller. Because parts of the memo authorizing that appointment remain classified, America doesn’t know the full reason why Rosenstein thought a special counsel was warranted.
Yet the Mueller probe, with its ancillary indictments of Trump associates and others, has created an unfair cloud of uncertainty over the administration and fueled Democrats’ impeachment fantasies. Even now, they are using Russia, Russia, Russia as an excuse to put Trump’s family and his entire life and business under scrutiny.
When is enough enough? When will the Trump haters take no for an answer?
Meanwhile, we do know that Comey and his dirty crew used the unverified Christopher Steele dossier, which was funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign, to get a secret court warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. And FBI text messages, along with congressional testimony, confirm that the same agents probing Trump were simultaneously involved in the Clinton e-mail investigation and decided to go easy on her because they thought she would be their next boss.
