GoFundMe: McCabe launches Online Drive For Donations For A Legal Defense

screen-shot-2018-03-29-at-9-15-07-pm.pngFormer FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe has launched an online fundraiser on GoFundMe to raise $150,000 to cover the legal costs for McCabe.  Money has poured in with adjustment of the “goal” upward to $250,000.  It has now surpassed that goal.  What is interesting is that McCabe is moving to tap into the contributions before the public learns what caused career Justice officials to seek the unprecedented termination of the former acting FBI Director.

We are still awaiting the release of the IG report but McCabe’s misconduct was sufficient to not only lead career FBI staff to call for his termination but FBI Director Andrew Wray to force him into a terminal leave upon reading the summary.  People are donating hundreds of thousands of dollars without any information on what led to McCabe’s forced retirement and later termination.

Whatever is in that report led Wray, the OPR, the IG, and Sessions to move against McCabe.  It is not surprising that, with the report subject to be released any day, McCabe is raising money now.  He has been further assisted by the false narrative that he lost his pension after being fired a day before his retirement — a claim that I earlier disputed.  He will receive roughly $2 million in a pension.

As with James Comey selling tickets for his publicity tour, these pitches are coming before the release of the actual findings. Indeed, both Comey and McCabe are currently being investigated by United States Attorney John Huber in conjunction with the Inspector General of the Justice Department.  That investigation could result in a criminal referral for the same violation that led to the indictment of Michael Flynn.  However, he now has over a quarter million dollars to use on any charges that may develop.

McCabe’s team unveiled the legal defense fund, hosted on the website GoFundMe, about 2 p.m. By 7 p.m., it had raised more than the new $250,000 goal (which was earlier set at $150,000).  At this rate, it could easily reach half a million dollars in 48 hours . . . based solely on McCabe’s word that he was wrongly treated by career staff in the OPR and IG as well as Director Wray and Sessions.

  1. All roads lead to Obama.

    The traitor, Jeff Sessions, is in the parking lot.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions, “…a dupe which will live in infamy”.

  2. Glenn Greenwald’s take:

    https://theintercept.com/2018/03/31/the-500000-gofundme-charity-campaign-for-wealthy-ex-fbi-official-andrew-mccabe-is-obscene/

    Excerpt:

    “In one sense, this is just the latest chapter in the bizarre and infinitely ironic spectacle of Democrats venerating security state agencies such as the CIA, NSA and FBI un- der the banner of “resistance.” Canonizing law enforce- ment agents and intelligence operatives most definitely makes this history’s strangest rendition of “resistance,” a term that — until Democrats after 2016 desperately needed a re-branding campaign — had been reserved for dissidents who bravely risked imprisonment and even death fighting to subvert, not sanctify, state security agencies that perform those functions.

    “But a charity campaign fueled by a multi-millionaire ca- ble news host, for the benefit of a rich federal police of- ficial, is not just bizarre but obscene. If one wants to protest the tragic plight of Andrew McCabe, there are many ways to do that aside from encouraging people to donate money to his legal battles.

    “For anyone who works with people who are actually suf- fering and deprived, or who falls into the huge category of humans who experience that suffering and depriva- tion, or who lacks legal representation because of pover- ty, or who has been victimized by the FBI’s abuses and lawlessness, watching this public campaign direct a tidal wave of money to someone like McCabe is really nothing short of nauseating.”

  3. Excellent piece on the McCabe – Hillary connection, codename, Midyear Exam

    Wow

    “Midyear Exam, the codename for the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, relied on a team of men and women with the right stuff — a quality that is hard to define but easy to recognize.

    The right stuff did not require strong Democratic credentials, but they certainly helped. Andrew McCabe, the deputy director of the FBI, led the team. McCabe was not your FBI gumshoe of old. He spent no time in his younger days chasing bank robbers in Des Moines. He was part of a new breed — the post-9/11 FBI leadership, for whom the career fast track was counterterrorism. He came of age at the intersection of law enforcement with national security, shuttling between D.C. and New York. Along the way, he developed a valuable personal network. His wife, Jill, ran as a Democrat for a Virginia state-senate seat in 2015. The political organization of Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, one of Hillary Clinton’s very closest associates, gave her nearly $500,000.

    Perhaps more important than having Democratic credentials was having a heightened understanding of the needs of senior leadership — in the FBI, certainly, but also in the DOJ. Right across the street from the J. Edgar Hoover Building sat Attorney General Loretta Lynch. She would be scrutinizing Midyear Exam in every detail. And not just Lynch. Hillary Clinton herself would be watching closely — and would be brought in for questioning, too. Being willing and able to treat her with kid gloves was essential. She “might be our next president,” team member Lisa Page reminded Peter Strzok, the agent in charge of Midyear Exam. Referring to Clinton’s upcoming FBI interview, Page wrote, “The last thing you need us going in there loaded for bear.”

  4. The traitor, Attorney General Jeff Sessions,

    “…a dupe which will live in infamy…”

    must be impeached by Congress

    for crimes of high office.

  5. McCabe and Comey know that, for them, legal defenses are exercises in futility so they are endeavoring mightily in public relations campaigns.

    Martha Stewart told one lie to the FBI.

  6. Ever since Chappaquiddick, Democrats proved they can be depended upon to support “their guy, right or wrong”. McCabe is just playing the same card that other dirty guys have played over the years, since.

    • You mean like the strange relationship between the Evangelicals and that moral abyss in the White House?

      Cordially, Bill

      • The ‘strange relationship’ consists of evangelicals having cast ballots for Trump for the simple reason is that he is not drawn from the Democratic Party’s Capitol Hill nexus or MacCow votary subculture and does not despise them or wish to engage in lawfare against them. Partisan Democrats are vicious and aggressive with people and the objects of their aggression have their parrying strategies, strange as that may seem to you.

  7. Are any of the MSM reseaching who framed Noor Salman, the wife of the Pulse shooter and “forgot” to mention that his daddy was an 11 year FBI informant? Don’t the Liberals love all them wymen and chillens and especially Muslims? Where is the outrage? Oh yeah, Comey and McCabe were in charge. Nothing to see here.

    • staggering image. It will only get worse as the Obama cretins get hired by MSM….who are gasping to be relevant as it is.

      They deserve each other

      • Continuing to post this nonsense doesn’t make it true, George.

        What is your beef with Sessions? That he’s had a criminal investigation ongoing for months and he didn’t leak it? That he’s not emotionally hyperbolic ? That he is busy doing his job? What?

        • The Sessions Commission is the sequel to the Warren Commission. It’s mandate is to perpetrate a whitewash of the Obama regime’s corruption. Comey, McCabe, Strozk, Page, Rosenstein, Kadzic, Yates, Baker, Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Mueller, Steele, Simpson, Hillary, Huma, Lynch, Clapper, Power, Farkas, Lerner, Rice, Obama et al. should already be on trial for treason, abuse of the power of government against the People and other egregious crimes of high office.

  8. Partisan Democrats are happy to contribute because they do not disapprove of what he did. Or of what Sztrok, Page, Judge Contreras, the Ohrs did. Or of what Lois Lerner did. The Democratic Party is a collecting pool of the sociopathic.

  9. Definitely some “higher loyalty” stuff going on there.

    Reviewing the list of post-bureaucrat roles for Obama admin-era characters involved in an (ongoing) attempt to take down Trump:

    Comey gets a fat book deal and does a speaking tour
    Susan “unmasker” Rice joins the board of Netflix
    Obama is in “advanced negotiations” with Netflix for a show
    James “perjury anniversary” Clapper is now on CNN
    John “covert drone bro” Brennan is now on NBC News and MSNBC

  10. Poor Little Andy reportedly drove a Porsche to work at FBI. Love the cliche family picture including wife who received the $700k+ and of course the kids, and cherry on sundae – the family dog. PT Barnum was right – there is a sucker born every minute and any fool who falls for this funding ploy deserves to be parted from their money.

    • There was a round of press agentry a while back which insisted he biked to work. I’d take that with a grain of salt since he lives in Loudon County.

      • Poor Little Andy McCabe’s sense of entitlement and funding ploy reinforce the public’s DC swamp/deep state suspicions.

  11. Now I don’t feel so nearly as bad as I did asking for donations to my own legal fund.
    I hated asking for help, but really needed it to help fund an appeal to get my child back in a custody appeal.
    It felt icky; that I should be able to stand on my own two feet and not prostrate myself.
    And now I see a very powerful man, who has $2M coming down the pike, doing the very same damn thing.
    I guess I have old school values on this, but this is the new normal.

    • GaryT – everyone needs help at some point in their life – financial or otherwise – you did what you had to do for your child. It is truly sickening to see these sleazy people who have undermined our system so horribly – and it’s in the open and they don’t care. HRC was sposed to win – and none of this would ever have come out but the plan went awry.
