As I wrote yesterday this Q-Anon entity is very interesting in its ability to foreshadow the future. The posts two weeks ago laid out much of what we see today in the news.
While Monday’s news below was unsettling, there is another shoe to drop dealing with Robert Mueller.Deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe stepped down immediately Monday after FBI Director Chris Wray read over the four page FISA court abuse memo on Sunday.
FISA stands for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and is an US federal court Christopher Steele for Fusion GPS.
Neither the FBI nor the Obama Justice Department made it clear this dossier was funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
The person of interest in the dossier was former Trump campaign associate Carter Page, with Steele alleging he was a Russian spy. This FISA warrant allowed broad surveillance of the Trump campaign prior to the election.
Among the charges laid out in the memo was McCabe’s wife, Jill, received $700,000 a state senate race from Clinton bagman and then-Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe’s SuperPAC. The payoff came at the same time Andrew McCabe was leading an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
It’s unclear if the FISA memo details McCabe’s department destroying evidence in that half-hearted investigation.
The President has some time before considering whether to release the memo. It’s unlikely to happen Tuesday since he is giving the State of the Union speech.
But look for some fireworks on Wednesday or Thursday with the news being that Mueller is stepping down as head of the Special Counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections.
I will also be looking at whether Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — Mueller’s boss — has his wings clipped as a result of his fueling of this failed covert operation.
