FBI Director Wray "Shocked To His Core" By FISA Memo, McCabe 'Removed' Next Day, More Heads To Roll: Report

FBI Director Christopher Wray was allegedly "shocked to his core" after viewing the four-page FISA memo Sunday night - hours before asking Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe to step down, according to journalist Sara Carter. 

FBI Director Christopher Wray

Hannity sat down once again with journalist Sara Carter, whose sources say McCabe may have instructed FBI agents to alter their "302" forms - the paperwork an agent files after interviewing someone: 

Carter: What we know tonight is that FBI Director Christopher Wray went Sunday and reviewed the four-page FISA memo. The very next day, Andrew McCabe was asked to resign. Remember Sean, he was planning on resigning in March - that already came out in December. This time they asked him to go right away. You're not coming into the office. I've heard rep[orts he didn't even come in for the morning meeting - that he didn't show up.

Hannity: A source of mine told me tonight that when Wray read this, it shocked him to his core.

Sara Carter: 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 - those are their interviews with witnesses. So basically every time an FBI agent interviews a witness, they have to go back and file a report. 

Hannity: Changes? So that would be obstruction of justice? 

Carter: Exactly. This is something the Inspector General is investigating. If this is true and not alleged, McCabe will be fired. I heard they are considering firing him within the next few days if this turns out to be true

Carter said that McCabe "quitting" is just the beginning, and that more resignations will be coming.

As we reported yesterday, McCabe was "removed" from his post as deputy director, "leaving the bureau after months of conflict-of-interest complaints from Republicans including President Trump." Several media outlets reported that McCabe is using his remaining vacation days to go on "terminal leave" and that his official retirement from the agency won't happen until March, allowing him to collect the full pension.

And as we noted last week, FBI Director Wray threatened to resign after being pressured by AG Jeff Sessions.

Around the time of the reports of his impending retirement, McCabe had spent several marathon sessions answering questions from Congressional committees behind closed doors.

It was expected that McCabe would hang on until early March, when he would become eligible for his full pension. It's unclear why he's choosing to step down early.

McCabe's accelerated resignation may a sign that Trump appointee Christopher Wray - who succeeded James Comey as FBI Director - is finally cleaning house. 

According to Axios, McCabe may be leaving in anticipation of the release of an inspector general's report on how the FBI handled the Clinton email investigation.

Odds on Rosenstein still having a job (and pension) before Trump releases the memo?

Extreme doesn't come close.

And (allegedly) the entire 7th floor of the Hoover building are a cabal, so I imagine Wray has been treated like a mushroom feeding on bullshit since he turned up - can't wait for his first public statement (probably 5 minutes after the memo goes hot in the public domain). May be quite emotional (although he still looks like a dipstick for putting up with the shite).


And Rip Van Sessions? His top tier is just as corrupt. Wakey, wakey Grandpops.


Get prepared, guys. Plenty of popcorn and alcoholic beverage will henceforth be consumed all round this establishment and others, methinks. If nothing else, the head explosions may put those since election night completely in the shade.

It seems that McCabe's replacement is a swamp creature too, who was neck deep in the Clinton/Lynch tarmac meeting. It's not like DC is the only Fibber office in the country. Do they not have anyone qualified in any of the other offices? Or do the people in the other offices just refuse to move to the hornet's nest? Or do they just want to keep everything swampy and corrupt by only choosing DC insiders?

Edit Add: I know people who talk about their dreams are generally boring, so I usually try to avoid both the people who talk about their dreams as well as avoid talking about my own. But last night I dreamed that huge round snowflakes were falling. The MSM weathermen called it Antoinette Marie weather and acted like it was a normal thing.

As a life sentence for punishment you will be forced to draw a pension from taxpayers, travel, fly first class and live in a luxurious home.  You will also be forced to drive the car of your choice. 

Shocked to the Core?   Well why would Wray know or suspect anything, he is only the head fixture. If he was that unaware....he is useless or lying.

Last night I watched a portion of the cable show about Waco/Branch Davidians.  It's hard to tell the producer's motives when the show was edited, but the FBI agents came across very badly in that show - very smug and self righteous.  Lots of troubling feelings after watching that and placing it in the current context.  At least they prevented those burned to death children from being abused.

Then there was blinking AG Not Zoe Baird...

@Hedgeless Horseman... Yes...

If you are on the phone with the IRS...

Over even the smallest of details just tell them you are recording the call...

The tables turn quite easily against the powerful in a world drowning in cameras and recording devices... Admiral Rogers got hold of the NSA, started looking around, and was like, "what the fuck is going on here..." Now its all a snowball rolling, and the lights have dimmed for the main event... Long live President Trump!

Govt Personnel Decisions to remove a guy like McCabe are to "wash away the Guilt", this simply reduces the pressure on an office/agency/directorate/administration... Kind of Neutral Looking Action... no admission of guilt nor plea of innocents.

- Removal of Deputy or Director is just to placate or wash away the sins...

- Sovereign Immunity normally applies to all but capital crimes when federal govt looks at supervisors or directors

- Notice there is no house cleaning, no transparency, no promise of Audit, GAO Audit, Inspection by IG, Inspection by US Congress, Admission of Infiltration, Mole by Soviets or PRC, Penetration by Wall Street Banks or European Bankers, Israeli Spies/French Spies/British Spies/Chinese Spies/Russian Spies... what the hell... maybe Globalist infiltrated and pass data to Fascists and Communists as they set up network for Wealthy Organizations?

Just askin'

The Clintons weaponized departments at will upon entering office. The FBI was among the first Remember Travelgate? One of the first things BC did was remove 92 sitting attorney generals and replace them with friends.  When there were questions about president friends travel arrangements, people were fired and replaced with Clinton travel agents. Some were wrongly accused of wrongdoing, were forced to go to court to get out of jail, and were exonerated without so much as an apology for the false accusations.  They were the first to truly weaponize the media.  After Waco, CNN was never the same.  Reporting became nothing more than a televised scripted program.  The DOJ became complicit with issues.  Voter fraud became a serious question - for years, Bob Dornan questioned the results of a rigged election in his district before he was totally ignored for telling the truth. Uranium One began while the Clintons were still in office.  No one is perfect in the swamp, but the Clintons' did a good job of stocking the pool with some of the most corrupt people on the planet.  Afterall, they promised the American Bar with their support, they "would redistribute America's wealth through the courts."  Nobody knew they were redistributing it to their bank accounts via loans, foundations, and weaponizing government agencies at the taxpayers' expense.

~" how is it, that pensions get preserved in these cases."~

The heck with that! How is it that Wray isn't hat-in-hand in front of his boss AG Sessions demanding a second special prosecutor for this mess TODAY?!?

How the hell does Wray know who is clean and who is dirty inside all of the FBI? Do not the actions of one person cast aspersions on the character of all in the FBI? And what about the other alphabet agencies implicated in this? Aren't all who work there suspect?

This is treason folks. You do not mope fucking about handing down hand slaps and garnishing pensions. You throw people in jail for life or hang the bastards!

I am so pissed that this guy gets to retire at 49 years old after committing so many crimes and collect a pension.  He should be in jail.  If you or I did what he did we would be in jail.  I don't understand the two tiered justice system here.  

Go rogue.  Go offgrid.  REduce your taxable income.  STarve the beast.  Meet your local sheriff.  Revolt now.

Yeah it makes me wish we could go Bob Lee Swagger on their asses!

Attorney General Russert: For the record, I don't like the way this turned out any more than you do, but this is the world we live in and justice does not always prevail. It's not the Wild West where you can clean up the streets with a gun... even though sometimes that's exactly what's needed. Bob Lee Swaggert, you're free to go.

[to guards]

Attorney General Russert: Unshackle the sergeant.
