Huge Exclusive: Fired FBI Director Andrew
McCabe Added the Bogus Pee Pee Story
to Garbage Russia Collusion Report
Based on Obama’s Directive

Original Article

Fired Former FBI Director Andrew McCabe made the decision to put what is likely the infamous pee-pee garbage story from the dossier into reports that was shared with the press based on a directive from President Obama. This fake and disgusting piece of information they all knew was false at that time was used anyway to support their spying on candidate and President Trump. The FBI knew in January 2017 that the Trump-Russia dossier was a crap document. Catherine Herridge released a page from the recent FISA report that shows that Andrew McCabe gave the directive to the FBI

The evil b@st@rds who were behind this whole effort to bring down President Trump should not be allowed to spend one more day without getting life time jail sentences or worse. Why they have not been indicted is a mystery that makes one wonder if the fix is in and they will not be charged or punished in any way like Hillary like Hillary was.

FTA: "McCabe added this “potential compromising material” which was LIKELY the pee-pee garbage tale into the intelligence community’s report based on Obama’s directive." I'm sorry. Although I know they are all crooks, I'm not gonna participate in the same thing I detest about the media and the Demos...parsing, claiming something's factual when in reality it's not. The header says clearly that McCabe ADDED the bogus story...and the piece itself says he LIKELY added it. Those are 2 very different things. I hope like crazy he DID add that gross story and that Obama ordered him to add it. But at the moment all I know is that he COULD have added it. WHO says that? Joe Hoft? Who's he? Now if Catherine Herridge reported it as fact, I'd tend to believe it because of her impeccable reputation. But this? This is slop at best and deception at worst. Fake news. Bah humbug.

Is this a sign that McCabe is "cooperating" with Durham in exchange for some nicer government run housing for the morally challenged - Durham: We'll see what we can do for your client counselor. But no guarantees, it's up to the judge but we will speak up for his cooperation. You know the drill counselor if your client gives us enough to nail the bad guys and he doesn't fold when giving his testimony and that he doesn't lie to us, and it sticks. You know one of them will be begging Durham cut them a deal.

Obama has always been petty and nasty. He's never won an election that he did not find a way to smear his opponent, unfairly, and slither to victory. Those who knew him in his "community organizer" days have said he was vain, lazy, and had no problem claiming the accomplishments of others as his own. I'm sure the idea of Donald Trump paying prostitutes to "defile" a bed on which he had slept gave him a thrill just fantasizing that Trump was thinking of him. It takes a very self-centered to make that stuff up. BTW...the "pee story" is disgusting but even if it happened, is it now a criminal act to wet the bed if Obama had once slept there?

Do not for a minute forget that Brennan, Comey, and Clapper were all part of the Obama administration. Lisa Page also texted that POTUS wanted to know everything that was being done. The Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign, and a political opponent so they could affect the 2016 election.

Catherine Herridge tweeted an image of page 177 of the Horowitz report, in which she drew attention to how McCabe caused the Intelligence Community Assessment to include what we guess must be the pee-pee story. In Herridge's mark-up of the report, she highlights a sentence that says that somebody "said that McCabe understood Obama's request for the ICA to require all agencies to include everything, and the Steele report qualifies as something". (I shortened this a bit.) The most natural way to understand this sentence is that "include everything" was part of McCabe's understanding, not Obama's request. But Herridge reads "include everything" as being part of Obama's request, and teases out a more sensational story. This is something that Horowitz could clear up easily enough.

Once the can of worms is opened many will be implicated but only if the mainstream media chooses to bring down their heroes. What do you think the chances of that are? BHO is safe untIl that unlikely event happens. For now the dims are scared to death of letting impeachment get out of their control and they don’t know what to do next.

Sadly, Catherine Herridge seems to be limited to one CBS news online posting every six weeks or so. That's all I've seen posted about her reporting since she left Fox.

Maybe I've been overly sheltered, but until Obama used the term, I had never heard a reference to being "all wee-weed up." Obama used the term several times to refer to individuals having an obsessive interest in an event or conspiracy. Coincidence? Does Obie have a urination fetish of some sort?

The first rule of being a high level bureaucrat in DC is to always cover your butt, and to never take any serious action or decision that could cause major political blowback, without first getting the OK to proceed by at least receiving “a wink and a nod” in the spirit of “plausible deniability” from your political “rabbis” first. Clearly that would certainly include running an investigation designed to “frame” a presidential candidate, presidential nominee, President-Elect, and the incoming President of the USA, along with members his campaign and staff. In a case like that “the wink and nod” would have had to come from the then President (Obama) and the Vice-President (Biden) of the USA, along with the fact that they were sure that a very friendly compatriot of the then President (Clinton) would be elected, after which all that malfeasance would be swept under the rug.

Pete Buttigieg has tried to carve out a niche among Democratic presidential hopefuls as the candidate who is comfortable talking about religion. Unfortunately, he’s only comfortable trying to use religion as a means of beating conservatives, especially religious ones, over the head.

With the help of Senate Republicans, Donald Trump spent the first three years of his presidency remaking the federal judiciary in his own image. The president has appointed 133 district court judges, 50 appeals court judges, and two Supreme Court justices—meaning about one-fifth of the nation’s federal trial judges, and one-fourth of its federal appellate judges, are Trump appointees. These jurists are leading a conservative revolution that will upend decades of precedent and enshrine reactionary policies into the law. The transformation has only just begun.
