Transcript - McCabe To Congress: Comey Draft Exoneration of Clinton Unprecedented

EXCLUSIVE: McCabe Told Congress That Comey’s Draft Exoneration of Clinton Was Unprecedented
BY IVAN PENTCHOUKOV
January 11, 2019

Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI, told House lawmakers during a closed-door interview in late 2017 that other than the probe into Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized use of a private email server, he was not aware of any instance in which an FBI exoneration statement was drafted months prior to the conclusion of an investigation.

“This is the only time that I am aware of, sir,” McCabe told a lawmaker, who asked him if it was “common practice” to lay out an exoneration statement two months prior to concluding an investigation, according to a transcript obtained by The Epoch Times.

Then-FBI Director James Comey had circulated a draft exoneration in May 2016—two months prior to concluding the investigation.

Representatives and staff from the House judiciary and oversight committees grilled McCabe during an 8-hour session on Dec. 21, 2017. Two days later, McCabe announced his retirement. McCabe was forced to resign from his active position on Jan. 29, 2018, and on March 16, 2018, the day before McCabe was to retire with a full pension, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired him for lying to investigators about self-serving leaks to the media.

The judiciary and oversight committees wrapped up a year-long investigation last month after interviewing more than 20 witnesses, including McCabe, Comey, and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

The lawmakers concluded that the Obama Justice Department treated Clinton and then-candidate Trump unequally in 2016. While the DOJ appears to have abused foreign intelligence surveillance powers to target a Trump presidential campaign associate, its investigation of Clinton “was over before it began,” a summary released by the House Judiciary Committee states.

‘Grossly Negligent’
Comey drafted the statement to exonerate Clinton two months prior to concluding the investigation and before interviewing more than a dozen key witnesses, including Clinton herself. Among other issues, the draft was edited to remove all mentions of “gross negligence,” a statutory term in the criminal code.

McCabe said he played a marginal role in editing Comey’s draft statement and does not remember having any discussions about the removal of “gross negligence” from the text. In one line of questioning, lawmakers showed that McCabe remembered discussions regarding another edit to the same draft, but not any conversations about the “gross negligence” aspect.

Rep.: “So you mention that you didn’t talk to anybody about the ‘extremely careless’ and ‘grossly negligent,’ but you did go and talk about the cyber side of that. So why would you talk to cyber experts about the changes there … and not the ‘extremely careless’ to ‘grossly negligent’? Why do you recall one and not the other?”

McCabe: “To be clear, I did not say that I did not discuss this with Director Comey. I participated in many discussions about many things…”

Rep.: “So you did discuss it?”

McCabe: “I don’t have a clear recollection of discussing…”

Rep.: “Okay. Do you have any recollection of discussing it?”

McCabe: “That edit?”

Rep.: “Grossly negligent [and] extremely careless. Any recollection?”

McCabe: “I do not. I do not.”

McCabe claimed to not remember or recall certain events or matters more than two dozen times during the interview.

Tensions With the DOJ
McCabe detailed tensions between the FBI and DOJ over how the email investigation was to be conducted. While FBI staff pushed to use subpoenas to force witnesses to answer questions and produce evidence, the Justice Department preferred to negotiate with defense lawyers.

“There were times that people in the FBI suggested and wanted to pursue, let’s say, acquiring of evidence through legal process, rather than the Department’s preferred route, which was negotiating consent to access different pieces of evidence,” McCabe said.

The investigators ultimately followed the path preferred by the DOJ.

Lisa Page, an FBI counsel who worked on the email investigation, described similar tensions during two days of testimony in July 2018 detailed for the first time by the Epoch Times on Jan. 11.

Saying that your likely potential boss should be prosecuted for crimes kinda kills your career longevity. Comey ultimately miscalculated.

While I'm not sure exactly what you are referring to, it sounds like you are saying that Comey put his career second, eh?

No, Comey tried to hedge and lost. Remember, at that time it looked like Clinton was to be the clear winner.
