For John, BLUF: Sure there was something behind the recent decision by Mr McCade. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Pajamas Media, by Mr David Steinberg, 29 Jan 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
Search the internet: Literally not a single media outlet, reporter, pundit, tweet, Russian bot, or cuddly woodland creature had predicted that the FBI's Deputy Director Andrew McCabe should be "expected" to "step down" on Monday.Yes, my previous post on this topic was based on the Adam Goldman article in The Old Gray Lady. Yes, "speed is life", but once in a while getting the nuance is important. Ms Sarah Carter says, via Twitter, there is more coming:
Yet the New York Times' Adam Goldman -- with a remarkably titled post published just moments after news broke elsewhere that McCabe was out -- wrote that such a move was "Widely Expected".
Latest: sources in bureau telling me whistleblowers feel confident more resignations to come.Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
