Shake hands, then come out sinking.
And let the bodies hit the floor.
Isn’t it odd how, when faced with their own mortality or perhaps something even more devious, various DSRs (Deep State Rats) and HRRs (High Ranking Rats) are leaving what they perceive to be the foundering ship/building they used to inhabit?
Please allow me to present a few cases in point. Because, after all, each one of these individuals and many more can hear what is termed “footsteps.”
First to fall: Andew McCabe, from CNN.com:
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe steps down abruptly
by Mary Kay Mallonnee, Laura Jarrett, Shimon Prokupecz and Dan Merica, 1-30-2018
FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has told FBI staff he is stepping down effective Monday — a move that surprised even those expecting his March retirement, sources tell CNN.
McCabe was a central target of President Donald Trump’s ire toward the FBI over its involvement in the investigation into potential collusion between his campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.
He was eligible to retire in March, but with his accumulated leave, he was able to step down earlier.
I should care to point out how CNN — though it knows full well — purposefully failed to mention a certain massive conflict of interest McCabe had involving the Demorats, Hillary Clinton, McCabe’s wife, the Demorat governor of Virginia and a particular investigation involving all the aforementioned elements save one.
It takes six paragraphs before CNN writes this:
Various sources described McCabe’s departure as a mutual decision, while others said it was the result of pressure to step down. One source briefed on the matter said McCabe announced his decision to senior executives and portrayed it as his choice. The source disputed the characterization that McCabe was removed.But a source familiar with the matter said FBI Director Christopher Wray told McCabe he is bringing in his own team, which he would not be a part of, and that it was McCabe’s decision whether to stay at the FBI or leave.
I wrote this about the situation back on October 31st of 2016:
Let us not forget the rancid involvement of Assistant Director Andrew McCabe, the number two man in the FBI, whose job it was to directly supervise and monitor the Hillary Clinton email investigation. From the WSJ.com:
The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Mr. McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe, received $467,500 in campaign funds in late 2015 from the political-action committee of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime ally of the Clintons and, until he was elected governor in November 2013, a Clinton Foundation board member.
In February of this year, Mr. McCabe ascended from the No. 3 position at the FBI to the deputy director post. When he assumed that role, officials say, he started overseeing the probe into Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server for government work when she was secretary of state.
FBI officials have said Mr. McCabe had no role in the Clinton email probe until he became deputy director, and by then his wife’s campaign was over.
But other Clinton-related investigations were under way within the FBI, and they have been the subject of internal debate for months, according to people familiar with the matter.
Does the federal government purposely hire people, pay them large salaries and install them into positions of massive power, who are not only blind to ethics but tone deaf as well?
Others further down the FBI chain of command, however, said agents were given a much starker instruction on the case: “Stand down.” When agents questioned why they weren’t allowed to take more aggressive steps, they said they were told the order had come from the deputy director—Mr. McCabe.
From the microsecond McCabe had any linkage to an investigation with Clinton, Democrats or the Foundation, via his wife, he should have immediately recused himself and assigned supervision to others, making the conflict of interest apparent to the director himself verbally and on paper.
Neither thing occurred.
Further, James Comey should have insisted on it. To my way of thinking that told me everything I needed to know about both Andrew McCabe and James Comey. I submit that you have forgotten your oaths. And why I know mine and keep mine.
I [name] do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
McCabe and Comey might want to read this, from their own FBI pages.
Let me bring this down to terms most will understand. Not as a law enforcement officer (though I was a Sergeant at the time) but simply as a county employee requesting a “sole source” purchase (as opposed to a bid process), I had to fill out five pages of questions designed to identify or unearth any sort of relationship I may possibly have with the source I requested due to scarcity or rareness of product. The county wanted to know if I was attempting to favor a provider in terms of a conflict of interest.
The FBI should be miles above that. They weren’t.
Tucker Carlson weighs in.
Then there was this input from liberal Alan Dershowitz.
Then came something of a “two-fer,” from Politico.com:
Two more officials cited in FBI texts step down
by Josh Gerstein
When in fact, a wee bit over a year, precisely the opposite is proving to be true?
Schadenfreude, meet said Demorats, DNC, Clinton campaign, Leftists and the American Media Maggots.
Shake hands and come out dissembling.
Are we truly a Constitutional Republic?
And can we keep it?
I so enjoy sitting on the banks of the river and watching the bodies of my enemy float serenely by.
