FBI Director Christopher Wray was “shocked to his core” after privately viewing the four-page congressional FISA memo on Sunday, and it is why he pressured former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to step down.
During an interview, Monday with Fox News, journalist Sara Carter told host Sean Hannity that top sources at the FBI confirmed to her that McCabe reportedly directed agents at the bureau to alter their “302” forms — which would be a felony.
A “302” form is what agents file after they interview an individual, meaning McCabe reportedly told agents to alter federal documents to perhaps cover-up potential acts of corruption.
She added: “Shocked him to his core, and not only that, the Inspector General’s report – I have been told tonight by a number of sources, there’s indicators right now that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to actually change their 302’s. So basically every time an FBI agent interviews a witness, they have to go back and file a report.”
Hannity raised the most important question following Carter’s admission: “So that would be obstruction of justice?”
Carter responded by saying the Inspector General is currently investigating that very question to determine just how much corruption and illegal actions McCabe was involved with while serving as the No. 2 official at the FBI.
Carter said that McCabe “quitting” is just the tip of the iceberg and that several other top officials will likely be “resigning” in the coming weeks.
McCabe resigned Monday effectively immediately after Wray reviewed the FISA memo and just before Congress voted in favor of releasing that memo to the public later this week.
McCabe is just one of many career bureaucrats who abused his power, likely broke the law, and could likely be charged criminally given what the FISA memo details and what the Inspector General finds in his internal investigation.
As GOP lawmakers crank up the heat to expose corruption at the FBI and DOJ, we are seeing that President Donald Trump truly is draining the swamp.
And if McCabe is proven to have been involved in a shred of this corruption, many would agree he should be charged criminally and held accountable.
