Trump Is Fuming That Corrupt FBI Hasn’t Released McCabe Text Messages – WARNS He May Get Involved And RELEASE EVERYTHING

President Trump questioned Saturday morning why the FBI had not provided conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch and others with text messages of former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, warning he “may have to get involved.”

“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……,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning. “…..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!”

Andrew McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe, accepted thousands of dollars in donations for a Virginia state Senate election in 2015 from a political action committee headed by Terry McAuliffe, who is close to the Clinton family and chaired Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential run.

Meanwhile, Andrew McCabe assisted overseeing the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails after Jill McCabe’s bid for the state Senate ended in failure. The FBI, led by then-Director James Comey, did not recommend that Clinton face criminal charges for how she managed classified information.

McCabe was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in March, less than 48 hours before he was going to retire with a full pension. An inspector general report released in April found that McCabe “lacked candor” on four separate occasions, after which a criminal referral was sent to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in D.C.

Earlier this year, Judicial Watch announced that the FBI had refused to provide the group with Andrew McCabe’s text messages, in response to a September 2017 Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

Trump has historically condemned the donations Jill McCabe received and blamed Andrew McCabe for harboring a bias against him. He has also been critical of former FBI Director James Comey, who he fired last year, and FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, who exchanged anti-Trump text messages.
