Should McCabe Be In Jail By Now?

Laura Ingraham of Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle,” have her opinion on the firing of now-former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Transcript as follows:

INGRAHAM: Over the weekend, Democrats bent over backwards, now, not to lament the outrageous lack of truthfulness by former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, but to lament his firing.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What the President did was one of the biggest, I think, character flaws that we see in him. He lacks human decency. It was cruel the way he did this to fire someone literally hours before they would’ve got their pension.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: President Trump announced we have 90 days to get McCabe before he retires. He put out basically a hit on him and said, “Do this before he qualifies for retirement.”

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I’ve never seen a President of the United States go after an individual. This is awfully mean-spirited.


INGRAHAM: Now frankly, he should have been sacked a long time ago, and you notice what the Democrats weren’t discussing there? But let’s face it, the government here followed a meticulous process, and they did it all by the book, which is good. The Justice Department’s Inspector General forwarded its findings on the conduct of McCabe to the FBI’s office of professional responsibility, and it was they who determined that McCabe should be fired – – the big decision.

Now, just so you all know, this office is staffed with career personnel, not Trump loyalists. So when the government learns of wrongdoing, shouldn’t it act immediately without regard to who cares when someone is retiring? If it was wrong, it was wrong, and that’s what the Justice Department did here. Well, you will notice that none of McCabe defenders that you just heard mentioned the actual reasons for his dismissal because those are very inconvenient. He’s charged with leaking information about an ongoing investigation, the one into the Clinton email scandal to “The Wall Street Journal.” Attorney General Sessions said that McCabe lacked candor about those leaks and at times he did so under oath. That’s a big no-no. Now, with a response on Friday night, McCabe claims the media leaks were done with the permission of the former FBI Director Jim Comey.

Now, that could be a big problem for Comey, why? Well, he has already testified under oath to Congress that he did not engage in leaking, nor did he authorize any leaks. Someone is lying here. And we haven’t even talked about Andrew McCabe’s conflict of interest. He should have recused himself from investigating Hillary Clinton since his wife Jill, when she was running for state office in Virginia, received nearly $468,000.00 from Clinton Powell-Terry McAuliffe’s pack. And by the way, for other Clinton bundlers contributed $130,000.00 to Mrs. McCabe’s campaign, not a bad haul.

That doesn’t constitute at least the appearance of a conflict of interest for her husband, who was investigating Mrs. Clinton? It is patently obvious at this point that the Democrats and their media toadies will defend and/or ignore any lawlessness, so long as it achieves their political end, which is, what, to win back power in Congress and eventually run President Trump out of office.

I was thinking about this. This endorsement of lawlessness, looking the other way at conflicts of interest, this isn’t an isolated incident for the left. Remember, these are the same people who applaud the compassion and the courage of public officials who push sanctuary policies in cities like Chicago, Hartford, Connecticut, and all across California. The average working person has to suffer as violent, illegal alien offenders roam free after being released from jail in places like Oakland and down in L.A., and by the way, these are the same people who made all kinds of lame excuses for the rioting and destruction by mobs in Baltimore following Freddy Gray’s death, and ditto for the nights of looting and fires — those terrible events in Ferguson following the police shooting of Michael Brown.

Now, recall that juries acquitted the police officers in each case. By the way, the same type of people who, going back to the Obama era, they didn’t bat an eye when Eric Holder declined to prosecute IRS official Lois Lerner for discriminating against conservative 501(c) Groups, and didn’t care that Eric Holder’s stonewalled Congress regarding the fast and furious scandal, which by the way, I forgot until today, which led to a criminal contempt of Congress resolution against Holder. And of course, we all remember, there were no repercussions for Susan Rice.

Remember when she went out and lied to the American people about what spurred that attack on our government compound in Benghazi, Libya? In fact, the only person who was actually charged after four Americans were killed there, including the U.S. Ambassador, was a man named Ahmed Abu Khattala, and he was found not guilty of 14 of the 18 counts against him, unbelievable, no accountability.

Let us not forget the Democrats who once prided themselves on caring about protecting civil liberties — they don’t seem at all bothered about using the vast power of our intelligence services to spy on members of Donald Trump’s campaign team. Although the Democrats and their media surrogates seemed fine with this, by any means necessary approach, I do not think most Americans are. Check this out. It’s a new Monmouth poll that finds that over half of the American public is either very or somewhat worried that the U.S. Government is monitoring their activities and invading their privacy.

In other words, they are noticing the overreach of the deep state, and they don’t like it. This matters to voters. It should. If any of us had done what McCabe did, we would probably already be in jail, and he may yet be. To understand the dangers at play here, remember when President Trump vowed to reform the intelligence services as he came into office? Do you recall the chilling response of Senator Chuck Schumer at the time?


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you. So, even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.


INGRAHAM: And the deep state has tried to get Trump six ways to Sunday ever since. And even when they are caught, as McCabe was, Democrats will defend them because they all share the same goal. At every level, the Democrats have either willingly enabled or tolerated lawlessness, conflicts of interest, and ranked bias within our government, because they want power back. And that’s why they’ve contorted themselves into these pretzels to protect Hillary, and that’s why they are relentlessly pursuing Donald Trump.

But I’m telling you, this approach may end up backfiring. President Trump’s approval numbers have gone up 4 percent to 43 percent in the last month. Maybe I’m being too optimistic, maybe. But I think Americans have a strong sense of innate fairness and if the Democrats idea of public service is seeming to embrace weaponizing intelligence, spying on American citizens and yet dismissing obvious criminal acts, when committed by their own party or illegal immigrants, well they made themselves need a November miracle to pull off the kind of wave election that they’ve been banking on, we’ll see — and that’s the “Angle.”

    I don’t know about McCabe………


  • Angelika G

    ALL of THEM belong in PRISON, McCabe, Obama, Hillary, Soros, Comey and on and on……!!!!

    • John T Koszalka

      I’d like to add to the list of Obama stooges, namely Brennan, Clapper, Rice, Rhodes, Lynch, Jarret, Holder, and Powers who already has claimed they used her name, and she does not know anything. Powers also told President Trump in a tweet that he should not get Brennan mad. WOW! WOW! What caliber of stooges did The Liar In Chief Obama have in that corrupt administration? It appears New’t was right when he wrote that today their is a new Club called I. Y. I. (intellectual yet idiot). They were so sure that Clinton would win that they were very carless in what they did, because they knew it would be swept clean once she was in office. So now the SLOBS ARE CAUGHT, and must receive the punishment prescribed for the crime of swearing an oath to serve, but instead served themselves, and in turn committed TREASON.

  • Anthony H Popp

    If he broke the law then he certainly should be in prison

  • allen blaine

    McCabe is a criminal. treasonous individual. Clapper, Obama, Comey, Hillary, Steele, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, they all colluded to get Bernie Sanders off the ticket in the primary, and then colluded to ruin Trump with a fake dossier used to get a FISA warrant. They all need to be tried for treason.

  • Gene Chapman

    need a special unbiased council to investigate now all those involved in scandal……

  • David Morgan

    McCabe got just what he deserved,he betrayed the People and he betrayed America. Personally I don’t want any part of The NWO. I think a majority of Americans feel the same way. These lying DemoCommies just make stuff up and expect all of us to believe it. So few making all the noise and false accusations. Leaking and lying same ole stuff. Sick of it.

    • Tuxedo_Plowboy

      That’s a fact. It’s DemoCommies and Globalists all rolled up into one. And they side with radical Muslim, and the flooding of our nation with illegals and undesirables to destabilize our society and assault our culture.

  • Rodney

    Andy McCabe should be in jail, but I want him drug through the legal system until he has to sell off all his assets, just like poor Flynn had to. There should be a greater level of torture for lawyers. Of course I have particular disdain for lairs…er…uh…lawyers.

  • Ronald Putnam

    right now it doesn’t matter . NOT ONE person has the balls to put anyone in jail and keep them there ! ( Except President Trump ) and then the lying jackasses would cry foul . the thing about it when people start going to jail and not in federal hotel but in a real jail with other real inmates , their will be a real Revelation in how people start talking !

  • cccarr

    Democrats are the ultimate example of hypocrites.

  • Tom Clark

    I know it’s a personnel matter that most would keep confidential but in this case they should release the report that recommended his termination so we can decide for ourselves

  • Thee Breeze

    They say it was mean of President Trump to fire Mc Cabe 26 hours before he retired and received his pension , I don’t care if they waited till the last minute to fire him .You don’t lie to the American people and then get paid the rest of your life while laughing at us. McDonalds is hiring better get started now on that new pension , this time pay attention to the rules .

    • Elizabeth Voelker

      Trump did NOT fire him, it came from the DOJ and FBI!!!! He was fired for cause happening before Trump! This was done on Obama time! Get it right.

    • Marjorie Rideout


  • james gore

    He should be prosecuted, suffer heavy fines and then sent to prison!!


    If not jailed, then only out on a 500,000 million bail!

  • Jackie Mcdonald

    Yes, along with Comey, Rice, Holder, even Obama. Ruin a Honorable General for life for the same charge and turn your head for others prove that a two tier Justice Dept. and even written Constitutional Laws don’t apply to some people in the United States, A Sham and when is AG. Sessions going to do his Job. Arrest these traitors the evidence has already been seen and proven or step down. Others would welcome the chance.

  • CCblogging

    McCabe should have already been convicted & hung for trying to overthrow the United States Government. High Treason!

            If you know so much about Russia, then move there. You’d probably feel right at home. As far as your thinking that all persons who disagree with your liberal thinking are ignorant hicks, beware of whom you are calling a hick. You may be surprised by the person you are attacking. Now have a good day, if your angry mind will let you have one. By the way, I recognized your Russian post. I spent 23 yeas as a Navy Communications Technician. I can’t read or write Russian, but I can recognize it.

          • Kol

            i located extended family in Russia quite some time ago. I’ve lived there a few times for lengthy periods. I feel very much at home when there — they’re marvelous people some of whom I’ve grown quite close to and its a delightful country travel around and get to know! One thing I can definitely say is that no one I know there is a total jackass like you. Now I hope your day is as pleasant as you are, mudak. :=)) And don’t hee haw so loudly next time you post, donkey.

          • DarlK

            As a people, I have nothing against Russians as a whole. It’s Putin that I am leery of. He acts like he is trying to revive the old Soviet Union. He is the former head of the KGB. I do have one question for you. In what country were you born?

          • Kol

            True, Putin is a disgrace to Russia, just like Trump is to America. And their thinking is very similar. One becomes very aware of that having lived in Russia and having seen Putin close up,

          • DarlK

            At last we agree on something. I hope they can keep us out of WW III. They act like two grade school bullies fighting over who controls the playground.

          • Kol

            More than likely Donald Trump will get us into a nuclear war with North Korea and possibly WWIII. It’s a very dangerous situation.

          • DarlK

            Kim is starting to cave and come to the negotiating table. I’m more worried about what Putin said about the US being in Syria. Putin is a loose cannon.

          • Kol

            I’ve spent a fair bit of time in Russia with extended family there and have watched Putin and Russian politics up close for a decade and a half. Putin could be a real danger, but no more than Donald Trump and they are both pretty much out-of-control. And the behind the scenes goings-on between the two of them do not make things any easier. And the two of the are pretty much destroyng the U.S./Russia diplomatic relationship considerin how much better it was a decade and a half ago when I located extended family there and started traveling there and spending lengthy periods to be close to and get to know some of them. It’s scary from several aspects.

    These corrupt scum should have already been put in prison. And yet no one has been locked up. Just what the hell is the DOJ and FBI waiting for? Or are they still just as corrupt as the last administration? The lockups need to start then the rest of the corrupt will follow. Due to the fact that they will eat their own to save their crooked lying asses!!

    • metheoldsarge

      It should be obvious to everyone why Hillary is above the law. I would like to see Hillary on the hot seat just as much as anyone else. That would set off one big chain reaction. The Democrats and the RINOs can’t afford to let that happen. Hillary knows whose closets have skeletons. If she goes down, a boat load of people along with many members of Congress could go down with her and the politicians in Congress and the Justice Department know it.

      The only people that will be prosecuted will be the scapegoats forced to take the rap for her. Could McCabe be one of those scapegoats? As long as the people allow it, she will continue to be above the law and will keep thumbing her nose at all of us. I would be pleasantly surprised to see her in a orange jump suit and handcuffs. Not going to happen.

    He is one of the reasons that the American people no longer trust the government, FBI< CIA EPA and the rest of the elite that is destroying our country, I wonder some times if this is part of the fifth column who are agents of a foreign government?

    The FISA warrant never should have been issued because of the deliberate withholding of information that would have cancelled the application from the start. All affected should fight because the well was poisoned before any discovery. McCabe and the rest should be sent to prison for the rest of their natural lives. They were trusted and lied with malicious intent.

  • Carl Carlson

    Yes and what’s taking so long? They will never do any real hard time, the plush Federal jail system will be easy time. But that’s OK as long as they are looking out thru bars.

  • 4grands

    Yes….sadly I do think he needs to be incarcerated. Sometimes a person can be too smart and too cocky. Maybe time in prison will straighten him out, but I doubt it.

  • 4grands

    McCabe is a very smart guy….he knew exactly what he was doing and exactly what would happen. As smart as he is (and he is very smart) he knew what would happen. Trump is doing what he is supposed to do….McCabe did what he wasn’t supposed to do. Simple as that. - 2015 | Privacy Policy
