Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who is a member of the House Oversight Committee, revealed late last week that former Deputy FBI Director was accused of lying not once but four times in the still withheld Inspector General’s report. My column today in the Hill newspaper will discuss this disclosure and the timing of McCabe in securing hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions through a GoFundMe page.
Jordan told The Ingraham Angle:
“Four times he lied about leaking information to the Wall Street Journal about the FBI. . . .He lied to James Comey. He lied to the Office of Professional Responsibility. And he lied twice under oath to the inspector general.”
I recently discussed how McCabe appears to have used a defense not unlike that of former National Security Michael Flynn: saying that he was “confused and distracted” in answering questions about his prior actions. Now it would seem that he may have been confused and distracted four times: with Comey; OPR; and twice with the IG.
