The Battle for Andrew McCabe’s Text Messages Continues
“Isn’t it frustrating that we have to sue law enforcement agencies to get the law enforced? That they’re breaking?” – Tom Fitton stated in last week’s Weekly Update.
When it comes to Andrew McCabe’s text messages, “we’re not asking for them because we don’t think that anything is there. Something is there and the FBI cover up suggests it’s big.” In fact, a recent court decision on the McCabe text messages case, which Judicial Watch has spearheaded since 2017 has forced the FBI to capitulate on their previously held position. The judge on the case, United States District Court Judge Tanya S. Chutkan, disagreed with the FBI’s position that text messages weren’t subject to FOIA, thereby forcing the FBI to begin to review and process Andrew McCabe’s text messages.
As you might recall, Andrew McCabe was “running the Clinton investigation as number two.” In the full swing of the investigation, in 2016, he recused himself from the investigation while his wife “received a boatload of money from the McAuliffe machine [then Virginia Governor]” for her 2016 Virginia State Senate race. Given the “egregious conflict of interest, McCabe recused himself from the Clinton email matter a week later. How do we know that? Because Judicial Watch found it out.”
While Judicial Watch“beat the FBI” in it’s fight to receive McCabe’s text messages, “we haven’t won-won yet,” in Fitton’s words. The FBI has stated it will “need until the end of august to tell us [Judicial Watch] when they’ll be giving us the 150 text messages,” he continues. “Wray’s FBI has outrageously obstructed these texts for years, and they’re separately stonewalling 8000+ pages of [other] emails and text messages until late 2021/2022. They’re protecting the Obama gang.”
“I’m tired of this FBI who thinks it’s above the law,” Fitton concludes. Aren’t you as well? Support Judicial Watch today and make sure our law enforcement agencies enforce the law!
