White House Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Donald Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia has imploded as multiple members of his investigative team have been exposed as top Democrat operatives. But now, Trey Gowdy has had enough.
From Fox News:
Congressional investigators said that this week’s seven-hour interrogation of Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe contained numerous conflicts with the testimony of previous witnesses, prompting the Republican majority staff of the House Intelligence Committee to decide to issue fresh subpoenas next week on Justice Department and FBI personnel. The questioning was led by Gowdy, who has been chomping at the bit to get to the bottom of this investigation.
McCabe reportedly told the panel how hard the FBI had worked to verify the contents of the anti-Trump “dossier” and stood by its credibility. However, a source said that when pressed to identify what in the salacious document the bureau had actually corroborated, McCabe cited only the fact that Trump campaign adviser Carter Page had traveled to Moscow. Aside from that, McCabe could not even say that the bureau had verified the dossier’s allegations about the specific meetings Page supposedly held in Moscow.
The source added that when asked when he learned that the dossier had been funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, McCabe claimed he could not recall – despite the reported existence of documents with McCabe’s own signature on them establishing his knowledge of the dossier’s financing and provenance.
This came after it was revealed that Peter Strzok, one of Mueller’s top investigators, was fired from the probe for exchanging numerous anti-Trump text messages with his mistress Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer who was also involved with the case.
In their texts, Strzok and Page referred to Trump as an “idiot” and as a “loathsome human.”
