Paul Callan of CNN has admitted it on the air – he was formerly one of those Trump haters who felt that the President and his GOP allies were unfairly attacking the intelligence community over the Mueller investigation and perceived wide-spread bias.
But after looking at the facts, Callan has changed his tune.
In bombshell remarks both on-air and on the CNN website, Callan has expressed agreement with Trump’s allies about the collaboration among Deep Staters to revoke the 2016 election.
From Callan’s editorial “Trump is Right about the FBI””
Causing further headaches for FBI brass, we now know that Deputy Director McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe, an unsuccessful Democratic 2015 candidate for the state senate in Virginia, had received approximately $700,000 in campaign contributions from then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s political action committee and the state’s Democratic Party. While this didn’t violate any laws or FBI protocols, the association looks unseemly for an agency conducting an investigation with potentially historic implications.
McAuliffe had been the campaign chairman of Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and has been described by onlookers as being “as close as family” to the Clintons.
While McCabe’s wife certainly has a right to run for office, her acceptance of hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from sources with clear links to the Clintons was a red-flag warning that should have caused McCabe to recuse himself from any involvement in any Trump/Hillary related investigations. He had no business calling any of the shots in these sensitive probes that would likely influence the outcome of the presidential election. The FBI has stated that that McCabe acted in accordance with stated agency protocols while his wife was running for office.
While I rarely agree with much of what the President does or says regarding legal issues, this time he’s got it right. The FBI’s reputation has been severely damaged not by the President’s criticism but by a systematic failure of the bureau’s leadership.
As much as it might pain conservatives to say it, it will be the changing opinion of liberals that defines how the Mueller investigation concludes, politically speaking.
Some of the smarter Democrats are as fed up with the entire thing as we are!
