Dan Bongino: Like Comey and Brennan, McCabe finds impetus of Trump probe ‘inarticulable’

FOX: Did you notice how, during the Andrew McCabe interview with “60 Minutes,” the former FBI acting director kept talking about “articulable facts?”

Like ex-CIA boss John Brennan and disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, McCabe was coining his own phrase to explain why the intelligence community started spying the Trump team. But the justification for mounting a probe should not lie in weasel words. It belongs in something known in law enforcement circles as “Paragraph One.”

Paragraph One in federal investigations lays out precisely why the investigation began and how. You can’t skip over it with fanciful phrases or empty verbiage. Yet, in the case of the counter-intelligence probe that targeted Team Trump, it has been two years and we are still waiting for someone to articulate a clear reason why the program began.

McCabe told Scott Pelley the FBI had a bunch of “articulable facts,” but he didn’t bother to articulate them. Earlier, Comey told Fox News Channel’s Bret Baier the investigation was justified by a “mosaic of facts.” The impetus was described by Brennan in still another interview as the “corpus of intelligence.”

Is anybody ever going to describe what this is?  MORE HERE

  1. LOL @ TT

    This is their larger and more elaborate smollett. I prefer a firing squad, but I would take life in prison with no chance of being pardoned by any future President or court.

  2. “We just didn’t like him.”

    “He wasn’t Hillary.”

    “He wouldn’t protect our secrets and bury our lies.”

    There, was THAT so hard to “articulate”?

    A spelling error.

  4. Uncle Al — “body of intelligence” literally.

    What he doesn’t say–and no one says–is what that intelligence consists of outside a purchased dossier (or two). The old saying holds true: “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle the with bulls*it.”
