Here’s how you know people who care about their duty and the law. You’re supposed to recuse not just if you do something wrong, you’re supposed to recuse if there is even the appearance, even if it isn’t true. Rep. Devin Nunes and AG Jeff Sessions have principles. Apparently, Andrew McCabe does not.
Via Daily Caller:
A top FBI official whose wife received political donations from an ally of Hillary Clinton’s last year does not need to recuse himself from the ongoing Trump-Russia investigation, the bureau said Wednesday.
The Senate Judiciary Committee inquired last month about FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s role on the Trump probe, which is looking into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Judiciary Committee’s chairman, had expressed concerns about a potential conflict of interest given that McCabe’s wife ran a state campaign in Virginia that received $700,000 from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a close friend of Clinton’s.
