FBI rank and file had not lost faith in Comey, will not update WH on any investigations

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Thursday directly contradicted a claim by the White House that the “rank and file” at the FBI had lost faith in recently fired Director James Comey.

"Director Comey enjoyed broad support within the FBI and still does to this day," McCabe told the Senate Intelligence Committee, calling it the "greatest privilege" of his professional career to work with Comey.

"I can confidently tell you that the vast majority of employees enjoyed a deep and positive connection to Director Comey,” he added, calling it “not accurate” to say otherwise.

The news of Comey’s dismissal Tuesday was a shock to agents at the bureau, where many former and current officials say he enjoyed broad support — even among those who disagreed with his decisions in the Hillary Clinton email case.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday claimed that “the rank-and-file” agents had lost confidence in Comey, an assessment that was met with raised eyebrows in Washington.

Although he was deeply controversial at times, Comey was a staunch defender of FBI staff. Perhaps the only time he became heated when testifying before Congress was when the integrity of the bureau was questioned.

“You can call us wrong, but don’t call us weasels. We are not weasels,” Comey declared at a House Judiciary Committee hearing in September.

McCabe during his testimony also contradicted the White House on the seriousness of the FBI's investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election.

White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday said the Russia probe is one of “the smallest things” the FBI has “going on their plate.”

“Sir, we consider it to be a highly significant investigation,” McCabe told Sen. Angus King I-Maine), when asked about the White House's comment.

McCabe also vowed that he will not communicate with the White House about the Russia investigation. Comey last month revealed that probe includes a review of potential contacts between the Trump campaign and Russia.

McCabe in his testimony sought to reassure lawmakers that the investigation was appropriately resourced and was proceeding apace independent of any political influence from the White House.

“There has been no effort to impede our investigation to date,” he said.

He further promised that he would inform the committee if there is any attempt to interfere with the probe in the future.

I forgot to add this. And apparently Trump is mad at him for his handling that's why we have back up Barbie doing the pressers. Sean Spicer I think is headed for that breakdown I predicted a while ago:



Sean Spicer ‘spent several minutes hidden in the bushes’

05/10/17 10:11 AM
   
By Steve Benen

There are plenty of popular political television shows set in Washington, D.C. – “Scandal,” “House of Cards,” “Madam Secretary,” etc. – and for people who’ve never worked in Beltway politics, it’s only natural to wonder which shows best capture real life.

The answer, of course, is “Veep.” In fact, it’s not even a close call.

Last night at the White House, for example, Press Secretary Sean Spicer didn’t seem altogether prepared for reporters’ questions about his boss firing the FBI director for reasons that don’t make sense. The Washington Post captured the scene:


After Spicer spent several minutes hidden in the bushes behind these sets, Janet Montesi, an executive assistant in the press office, emerged and told reporters that Spicer would answer some questions, as long as he was not filmed doing so. Spicer then emerged.

“Just turn the lights off. Turn the lights off,” he ordered. “We’ll take care of this…. Can you just turn that light off?”

Spicer got his wish and was soon standing in near darkness between two tall hedges, with more than a dozen reporters closely gathered around him. For 10 minutes, he responded to a flurry of questions, vacillating between light-hearted asides and clear frustration with getting the same questions over and over again.

Let that sink in for a minute: the chief spokesperson for the president of the United States hid in the bushes, only to emerge after journalists agreed to talk to him in “near darkness.”

If we saw this on HBO, we’d laugh at the absurdity. Knowing that it happened in reality, it’s a lot less funny.

Comey found out he was fired on tv? If that's true, that's like being drafted in the NFL or something. How unprofessional.

did you guys post the budget cuts? from NY Times. read more on: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/22/us/politics/trump-budget-cuts.html?_r=0

Quote

President Trump plans to unveil on Tuesday a $4.1 trillion budget for 2018 that would cut deeply into programs for the poor, from health care and food stamps to student loans and disability payments, laying out an austere vision for reordering the nation’s priorities.

The document, grandly titled “A New Foundation for American Greatness,” encapsulates much of the “America first” message that powered Mr. Toupee's campaign. It calls for an increase in military spending of 10 percent and spending more than $2.6 billion for border security — including $1.6 billion to begin work on a wall on the border with Mexico — as well as huge tax reductions and an improbable promise of 3 percent economic growth.

The wildly optimistic projections balance Mr. Toupee's budget, at least on paper, even though the proposal makes no changes to Social Security’s retirement program or Medicare, the two largest drivers of the nation’s debt.

To compensate, the package contains deep cuts in entitlement programs that would hit hardest many of the economically strained voters who propelled the president into office. Over the next decade, it calls for slashing more than $800 billion from Medicaid, the federal health program for the poor, while slicing $192 billion from nutritional assistance and $272 billion over all from welfare programs. And domestic programs outside of military and homeland security whose budgets are determined annually by Congress would also take a hit, their funding falling by $57 billion, or 10.6 percent.

The plan would cut by more than $72 billion the disability benefits upon which millions of Americans rely. It would eliminate loan programs that subsidize college education for the poor and those who take jobs in government or nonprofit organizations.

Mr. Toupee's advisers portrayed the steep reductions as necessary to balance the nation’s budget while sparing taxpayers from shouldering the burden of programs that do not work well.
