Deputy Director Andrew McCabe asked for a private meeting wherein the FBI set up Team Trump to appear guilty of interference.
Working with the DNC loyalist media, the FBI set up Reince Priebus to appear guilty of pressuring the FBI to deny charges against the Trump Administration. They did this, reportedly, through a “private” meeting between Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Priebus, in which McCabe assured Priebus that a New York Times story claiming contact between Trump aides and Russian intelligence was false. Priebus asked McCabe to tell the media. Both McCabe and, later, James Comey refused to tell the media what they had told Priebus.
But then, suddenly the media reported from unnamed sources that the Trump Administration was pressuring the FBI to deny reports of Russian collusion and the FBI was refusing to give in to White House pressure!
The Federalist reports, “New Book: McCabe Initiated White House Meeting That Led To Leak.”
Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe asked to speak privately with White House chief of staff Reince Priebus following a February 2017 intelligence briefing. The scene is described in “Media Madness,” Howard Kurtz’s new book on the press and its relationship with the Trump administration. McCabe said he asked for the meeting to tell Priebus that “everything” in a New York Times story authored by Michael S. Schmidt, Mark Mazzetti, and Matt Apuzzo was “bullsh-t.”
The story was yet another one of those anonymous “bombshells” you’ve heard so much about during the Trump era. It was headlined “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence” and was sourced to not one, not two, not three, but four “current and former American officials.” […]
CNN’s Pamela Brown, Jim Sciutto, and Evan Perez reported a very similar story, also sourced to anonymous officials. Sciutto is a former Obama administration appointee who is close to Obama administration officials. Perez has extensive ties to Fusion GPS, the Democrat-funded firm that created the Russia narrative.
McCabe claimed to want Priebus to know the FBI’s perspective that this story was not true. Priebus pointed to the televisions that were going non-stop on the story. He asked if the FBI could say publicly what he had just told him. McCabe said he’d have to check, according to the book.[…]
Now, a week later, CNN was airing a breaking news story naming Priebus. According to ‘multiple U.S. officials,’ the network said, ‘the FBI rejected a White House request to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Donald Trump’s associates and Russians known to U.S. intelligence.’
