McCabe reveals that FBI informed Republican leaders of investigation against Trump and none objected


Former FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe made a stunning revelation on Tuesday morning that undermines President Donald Trump’s complaints about the FBI opening a counterintelligence investigation against him in 2017.

In January, reports surfaced revealing that the FBI opened an investigation against Trump in 2017 shortly after he fired former FBI Director James Comey on suspicions that Trump may be working for the Russians. The results of that probe have not been disclosed because the investigation turned into the Russia investigation now headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump and Republicans have been whining about the report ever since, accusing the FBI of treason.

But now McCabe is throwing cold water on that outrage, particularly from Republicans in Congress because he told The TODAY Show that the FBI informed Republican leaders of the investigation and not one of them voiced an objection.

“No one objected,” McCabe said of the briefing. “Not on legal grounds, not on constitutional grounds, and not based on the facts.”

McCabe also noted that the FBI had information leading them to believe Trump is a threat to national security.

“We had information that led us to believe that there might be a threat to national security, in this case, that the president himself might, in fact, be a threat to United States’ national security,” he said. “You have to ask yourself why any president of the United States might not want to get to the bottom of Russian interference in our election.”

Here’s video clips of the bombshell interview via Twitter.

If Republican leaders, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) were already told about the investigation at the time and had no objections, their outrage now is a complete sham. The FBI clearly did their job by opening the investigation and Republicans knew it then and they know it now. And every American should be outraged by their behavior toward the FBI.

Legal experts are certainly outraged:

Republicans have some serious explaining to do.
