McCabe’s wife got three quarters of a million dollars for a failed congressional campaign as a Democrat.
Alas, he had finally been fired!
McCabe expertly read the writing on the wall. Recognizing that Mueller was bent on reconstituting an FBI HQ that Freeh had summarily dismantled, McCabe made his move.

All the above actions are troubling. In almost all of them, McCabe played some role.
Andrew needs to testify under oath.
