Former prosecutor: FBI agents were required to ‘fabricate’ evidence – Obama officials will be implicated

There’s a firestorm headed to Washington — but it isn’t targeting the current administration.

Former Barack Obama administration officials, including former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, are in the path of the flames. Former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Joe diGenova says we’re going to find out that McCabe “made FBI agents fabricate evidence to exonerate Hillary Clinton,” and predicts that a grand jury will eventually investigate senior officials from Obama’s Department of Justice and FBI.

“There’s going to be resolution”

DiGenova is confident that McCabe explicitly worked to protect Clinton during the investigation into her use of a private email server while she was secretary of State.

Asked by Fox Business host Lou Dobbs if there will be any resolution to the reported corruption in the FBI and DOJ, diGenova answered, “Yes, there’s going to be resolution.”

DiGenova explained:

The memo from the House Intelligence Committee will be the start. Next will come the inspector general’s report from the Department of Justice which will be devastating, because it will show Andrew McCabe made FBI agents fabricate evidence to exonerate Hillary Clinton and then there’s going to be a federal grand jury to investigate the Obama administration’s senior Justice Department officials and the senior members of the FBI.

McCabe resigns

McCabe resigned from his role as deputy director on Monday, but did not cite a reason for his departure. The Washington Post speculated in a report:

McCabe left the FBI following a meeting with FBI Director Christopher A. Wray in which they discussed the inspector general’s investigation, according to people familiar with the matter.

[Inspector General Michael] Horowitz announced in January 2017 that he was examining the Justice Department’s handling of the Clinton investigation. His report is expected in the spring.

This report comes as Horowitz is also reported to be investigating why McCabe, whose wife ran for office as a Democrat and who has ties to Hillary Clinton, did not look at new emails related to the investigation into Clinton and her private server.

Those emails were found on the laptop of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), who is the husband of top Clinton aide, Huma Abedin, and who is currently serving a 21-month sentence for charges related to child pornography.

“Horowitz has been asking witnesses why FBI leadership seemed unwilling to move forward on the examination of emails found on the laptop until late October — about three weeks after first being alerted to the issue,” according to the Post report.

The Post added:

A key question of the internal investigation is whether McCabe or anyone else at the FBI wanted to avoid taking action on the laptop findings until after the Nov. 8 election, these people said. It is unclear whether the inspector general has reached any conclusions on that point.

Donald Trump, Jr. Weighs In

While reporters at the Post have since argued that McCabe’s departure is the result of Horowitz’s investigation, the media initially blamed pressure from the president. Outlets seemed to walk back that claim on Monday, however, including CBS, which tweeted:

But the president’s son Donald Trump, Jr. had a sarcastic response for the media’s ever-changing stories.

“Oh interesting!!! I remember yesterday most of the MSM screaming he quit because of a mean tweet potus sent last year. LOL,” he tweeted.
