On Tuesday, during an interview with Savannah Guthry, Andrew McCabe told her he informed Congress, the ‘Gang of 8’, that he opened a counterintelligence investigation into President Trump the day after Jim Comey was fired. Not a single lawmaker objected, he says. “No one objected.”
Former Rep. Trey Gowdy told Martha MacCallum last night that it’s not true in his opinion.
If that’s the case, McCabe only said it to embarrass Republicans, the President and sow division.
“What do you think he was getting at, that no one objected?” MacCallum asked Gowdy, now a Fox News contributor, during “The Story” on Tuesday.
“That Devin and Paul knew about it and had no problem with it,” he replied, referring to House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes and then-House Speaker Paul Ryan.
“The reason he’s doing it this way is that Devin and Paul are not allowed to discuss anything that is said in a Gang of Eight meeting, and McCabe knows that. So he can level the accusation and Paul and Devin cannot refute him,” Gowdy said.
McCabe is a perjurer and it’s safer to believe he’s lying rather than to take him seriously.
PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID MCCABE MADE A FOOL OF HIMSELF
About McCabe’s interviews hawking his book, he said, “I think Andrew McCabe has made a fool out of himself over the last couple of days,” Trump told reporters during a meeting with the chancellor of Austria.
“He really looks to me like a poor man’s J. Edgar Hoover,” Trump added with a chuckle. Hoover was the first FBI director and became a controversial figure for his use of secretive programs to collect damaging information on political leaders.

Welcome from Long Island, New York!
We want to present the news that the mainstream tends to ignore from a right-of-center perspective.
I’m an ex-liberal and am amazed at all I didn’t know when I was a liberal, like: the Constitution isn’t a “living” document; giving out endless welfare checks is a bad idea; pity for prisoners is better spent on the victims of their crimes; guns aren’t evil but people are; free speech matters more than I knew which is why PC needs to be obliterated ASAP; women can be evil too; big government doesn’t do a good job.
Kumbaya, We Are the World, It Takes a Village, and anything even remotely resembling those concepts are now out of my head unless I’m using them to make fun of somebody; war is necessary when under attack; socialism and communism have absolutely no redeeming qualities as systems of government; Carter wasn’t a good president and Reagan was, Green should go back to being a color.
Independent blogs like this one provide an opportunity for common folk to battle the corrupted mainstream media in a search for truth. We are searching, always searching…
We research and are as factual as possible and provide links to sources though commentary is commentary. If we make a mistake, we correct it.
I have published educational articles, short stories for children and was a copy editor for This Week Magazine. I have a B.A. in English Literature and masters degrees in Education, Secondary Education and Administration.

The name Sara Noble is a nom de plume. There are a few reasons for the nom de plume and included in those is the fact that many of my family members are liberals and don’t want their last name out there on a center-right blog. I started out with the pseudonym and just kept it. It’s a family name.
Pity me, I’m surrounded by liberals and I live in New York.
