He was elevated to [Deputy- correction- Acting] Director of the FBI by Donald Trump in February 2016, AFTER Obama left office.

From May 9, 2017, to August 2, 2017, McCabe served as the Acting Director of the FBI in the Trump Administration.

  • Another fake news by @FactsMatter, Andrew Mccabe oversaw the Clinton investigation. That investigation took place prior to the 2016 election. Andrew Mccabe was James Comeys 2nd in command of the FBI. James Comey and Andrew were appointed by the Obama administration to their positions in the FBI.

    Obama appointed James Comey who in turn appointed Andrew as his second in command. Trump fired Comey and Mccabe the 2nd in command who got his position due to the previous Obama administration step up and took over James Comeys position.

    Both Comey and Andrew were left over people from the previous administration of Obama.

    @FactsMatter, enough with the fake news. You should work for CNN. You are getting good at it.

  • No one believe any breath that factsmatter said anymore. Its straight bullshit.

    Hahaha
  • Read it and weep.

    McCabe: 'I was fired because I opened a case against the president'

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said he was ousted from the bureau in March 2018 because he opened two investigations into President Donald Trump 10 months earlier.

    “I believe I was fired because I opened a case against the president of the United States,” McCabe told host Scott Pelley during an interview on CBS News’ “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday.

    McCabe was elevated to the role of acting FBI director in May 2017 after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, and said he promptly opened two investigations into the president. A criminal inquiry focused on whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey, and a separate counterintelligence probe sought to determine whether the president was acting on behalf of the Russian government.

    Mccabe was fired because he was found by the Inspector General to have broken US laws and protocols by leaking informations to the media.

    Politico can kiss my brown ass. Mccabes opinion runs opposite of what the Inspector general found and the Inspector general recommend his firing because mccabe lied about leaking classified informations to the liberal socialist media.

    Hahaha
  • Laugh all you want. It won't change the fact that McCabe was elevated to the role of acting FBI director in May 2017 by President Donald Trump, not by Obama as you falsely claimed.
  • FM is wrong, gun smuggler is right. McCabe was elevated to Deputy Director under Comey in February, 2016, during the Obama Administration. From Wikipedia:

    Andrew George McCabe (born March 18, 1968[5]) is an American attorney who served as the Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from February 2016 to January 2018.

    McCabe joined the FBI as a special agent in 1996 and served with the bureau's SWAT team. He became a supervisory special agent in 2003 and held management positions of increasing responsibility until he was elevated to Deputy Director of the FBI in February 2016. From May 9, 2017, to August 2, 2017, McCabe served as the Acting Director of the FBI following James Comey's dismissal by President Donald Trump. U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions stated that McCabe was one of several candidates under consideration for Director. President Trump ultimately chose Christopher A. Wray, the former Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department's Criminal Division, to succeed Comey.[6] Once Wray was sworn in, McCabe returned to the position of Deputy Director.[7]
  • Sorry, Sarem Chuuk , but the title of my post should have stated that Trump appointed McCabe Acting Director of the FBI, not Deputy Director.

    I will correct the headline to reflect what I stated in my posts above from 10 hours ago and 5 hours ago.

    The point is that Trump, not Obama, made McCabe Acting Director of the FBI., a promotion from Deputy Director.

    "McCabe was elevated to the role of acting FBI director in May 2017 after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey..."

    As you correctly quoted from Wiki, "From May 9, 2017, to August 2, 2017, McCabe served as the Acting Director of the FBI."

    Trump was president May - August, 2017. Obama was not.

    Mccabe is a Obama official.


    Oh why are key memebers from the Obama administration defending McCabe? Why are Obama administration officials helping mccabe and why is Obama himself trying hard to get the the charges against mccabe dropped?

    Hahaha

    Obama’s team lines up to defend Andrew McCabe in court
    Obama-era national security leaders would testify on behalf of McCabe should he face trial over allegations that he misled officials about leaks to the media.

    A cavalcade of Obama-era national security leaders have committed to testify on behalf of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should he face trial over allegations that he misled officials about leaks to the media.

    The lineup, detailed in a legal analysis from McCabe's legal team, the substance of which was provided to the Justice Department, includes a string of former senior officials. McCabe’s ex-boss, however — former FBI Director James Comey — has said he could be a witness against him, based on testimony Comey gave to an internal watchdog that appeared to contradict McCabe’s version of events.

    James Comey another obama official is already signaling that he is willing to be a witness against mccabes in court. Comey is willing to be on Trump side to testify against mccabe. Comey took a plea deal in secret. That's why he never got charged and that's why he is willing to be a star witness against mccabe.

    Hahahaha
  • Once again, from May 9, 2017, to August 2, 2017, McCabe served as the Acting Director of the FBI under President Trump, not under President Obama.

    Trump was president from May - August, 2017. Obama was not.

    Trump, not Obama, made McCabe Acting Director of the FBI., a promotion from his previous position of Deputy Director.
  • The Stoned One, Rats Ass Man, does it again. He states "Comey took a plea deal in secret."

    Hey, you lying sack of shit, do you have any proof of this bullshit? Or are you just suffering from verbal diarrhea (constantly moving your vowels, with nothing but runny brown shit streaming out)?

    Oh, and when, pray tell, is this "trial" going to happen? Maybe WHEN PIGS FLY!?!
  • So this is the real reason for the impeachment inquiry. To take attention from a McCabe who was a obama offical. Its all to mislead people from the real crime and corruption committed under the last administration of President Obama.

    It all make sense.
  • Glad to know something makes sense to ANewNookie, even if it is fiction.

    Rats Ass Man, still waiting for proof.
  • Name calling from a 78 year old white women. Classic. Hahaha

    What's fiction is the Russian collusion you and your lesbian friend factsmatter told was real. It turned out to be fake. What's fiction was the SDNY case you and your girlfriend factsmatter said it was real but again turned out to be fake. What's fiction was the obstruction you and your queef lover factsmatter said was true and again it turned out to be fake.

    Sarem, why are Obama official's defending Mccabe and calling for the case and charges against him to be dropped?

    Simple. When the case goes to court it will all come out. This is why they are trying to stop it.

    Obama appointed Comey and Comey appointed mccabe. And mccabes wife worked for fusion GPS the same company that created the steele dossier that the Obama administration used to spy on Trump.

    Hahahaha

    I'm fucked right? No we're fucked! We must defend out man from justice.

    Hahaha
  • Yes, Rat, you are fucked. And you have no patience. And you are stupid. Anything else? Where is the proof that Comey took a secret plea deal?

    Oh, and the reason that we defend McCabe is that he is a patriot. Simple.
  • Oh, WhoGivesARatsAss, Man, don't forget to let us know if McCabe gets indicted for anything. We wouldn't want to miss it. You know, indicted, like Manafort, Flynn, the Dutch guy, Gates, Kilimnik, and the other criminals. We know the Orange Orangutan won't be indicted before January, 2021, so we can wait for that one.

    Almost peeing my pants (almost but not quite) waiting for Giuliani's New York State Bar investigation. That will be fun!
  • Hahaha

    Hating America is not patriotism. Thats what you socialists are known for now days. Hating America and US citizens. Defending anti Israel and anti semitism and islam.

    What world you from? Trump derangement world? Taking informations from Russians and used it to spy on oppositions.

    Mueller said it all. Manafort and flynn case are not related to his witch hunt. No American was ever indicted on conspiracy of collusion.

    Stupid old white lady.

    Hahaha
  • Got any proof, schmuck, that McCabe hates America? Got any proof that Comey hates America? Got any proof that I hate America. What all three of us hate is Nazi fascists.

    How is it that the FSM hasn't issued an arrest warrant for you and the other guns smugglers, huh RastaPasta?
