FBI Director 'Shocked To The Core' By FISA Memo, Massive Purge Coming
Christopher Wray read memo just hours before ordering FBI Director Andrew McCabe
FBI Director Christopher Wray was reportedly "shocked to his core" after reading the four-page FISA memo Sunday night, just hours before ordering FBI Director Andrew McCabe to step down according to o journalist Sara Carter.
Sources say that McCabe may have instructed FBI agents to alter their "302" forms (the paperwork an agent files after interviewing someone)
According to Carter: What we know tonight is that FBI Director Christopher Wray went Sunday and reviewed the four-page FISA memo.
The very next day, Andrew McCabe was asked to resign. Remember Sean, he was planning on resigning in March - that already came out in December. This time they asked him to go right away. You're not coming into the office. I've heard rep[orts he didn't even come in for the morning meeting - that he didn't show up.
President Donald Trump called for the immediate release of the four-page "FISA memo" which allegedly reveals the 'wide-scale surveillance abuse' by the Obama Administration, the FBI, and the DOJ.
Trump made it clear to Attorney General Jeff Sessions he wanted the Memo released by relaying the message though White House Chief-of-Staff John Kelly last Wednesday, ultimately putting the White House at odds with the DOJ.
According to Zerohedge: Sara Carter: Shocked him to his core, and not only that, the Inspector General's report - I have been told tonight by a number of sources, there's indicators right now that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to actually change their 302's - those are their interviews with witnesses. So basically every time an FBI agent interviews a witness, they have to go back and file a report.
Hannity: Changes? So that would be obstruction of justice?
Carter: Exactly. This is something the Inspector General is investigating. If this is true and not alleged, McCabe will be fired. I heard they are considering firing him within the next few days if this turns out to be true.
Carter said that McCabe "quitting" is just the beginning, and that more resignations will be coming.
As we reported yesterday, McCabe was "removed" from his post as deputy director, "leaving the bureau after months of conflict-of-interest complaints from Republicans including President Trump." Several media outlets reported that McCabe is using his remaining vacation days to go on "terminal leave" and that his official retirement from the agency won't happen until March, allowing him to collect the full pension.
And as we noted last week, FBI Director Wray threatened to resign after being pressured by AG Jeff Sessions.
Around the time of the reports of his impending retirement, McCabe had spent several marathon sessions answering questions from Congressional committees behind closed doors.
It was expected that McCabe would hang on until early March, when he would become eligible for his full pension. It's unclear why he's choosing to step down early.
McCabe's accelerated resignation may a sign that Trump appointee Christopher Wray - who succeeded James Comey as FBI Director - is finally cleaning house.
According to Axios, McCabe may be leaving in anticipation of the release of an inspector general's report on how the FBI handled the Clinton email investigation.
