On Saturday President Trump threatened he may have to “get involved” if the FBI doesn’t release text messages from former FBI Director Andrew McCabe. Judicial Watch has been working hard to obtain these text messages from the FBI, which the FBI have refused to comply and turn them over.
The Text Messages of question were from Andrew McCabe and his wife’s 2015 State Senate campaign. The reason for this importance is because McCabe’s wife took massive amounts of money from Hillary Clinton in her Senate campaign.
The refusal to hand over the text messages led Trump to make a threat on Twitter.
“Why isn’t the FBI giving Andrew McCabe text messages to Judicial Watch or appropriate governmental authorities. FBI said they won’t give up even one (I may have to get involved, DO NOT DESTROY). What are they hiding? McCabe wife took big campaign dollars from Hillary people…..”
According to Fox News: Judicial Watch has been fighting to gain access to McCabe’s messages related to his wife Jill’s 2015 Virginia state senate campaign. The Wall Street Journal first reported in October 2016 that Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s political action committee, gave nearly $467,500 to her campaign. The Virginia Democratic Party spent an addition $207,788 on the campaign.
These actions have raised concerns with McCabe due to his involvement with Hillary Clinton Probe. It is reasonable to conclude Andrew McCabe was bought off by Hillary Clinton and the DNC to make sure Hillary Clinton did not face any punishments.
President Trump followed up with a second Tweet claiming the damage that has been done to the image of the FBI because of a few radical FBI Directors.
“…..Will the FBI ever recover it’s once stellar reputation, so badly damaged by Comey, McCabe, Peter S and his lover, the lovely Lisa Page, and other top officials now dismissed or fired? So many of the great men and women of the FBI have been hurt by these clowns and losers!”
