    The FBI Talked to the White House About Its Russia Probe. That Was Probably Against the Rules



    FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe may have violated multiple existing Justice Department rules controlling contacts between the bureau and White House officials when they spoke earlier this month with White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus about their ongoing investigation into Russia’s influence operation against the 2016 U.S. presidential election, according to several former senior Justice Department officials.

    The first questionable contact came when McCabe spoke with Priebus for five minutes after a 7:30 a.m. meeting at the White House on Feb. 15 on an unrelated intelligence issue. The day before, the New York Times had reported that Trump’s campaign and other Trump associates had multiple contacts with known agents of Russian intelligence in the year before the election.

    At the White House meeting, McCabe told Priebus, ‘I want you to know story in NYT is BS," according to senior Administration officials who briefed reporters on Feb. 24.

    Priebus asked McCabe what could be done to push back, saying the White House was “getting crushed” on the story. McCabe demurred, and then later called back to say, “We'd love to help but we can't get into the position of making statements on every story.”

    FBI Director James Comey later called Priebus himself and repeated McCabe’s statements about the New York Times story. Comey also said he was unwilling to speak publicly about the piece but agreed to let Priebus cite senior intelligence officials in his pushback, the officials said.

    McCabe is a Democratic hack and I suspect was the one leaking the information to the NY Times.

    It sounds to me like this whole thing was a set-up.

    The source of the OP is Time.

    And it is well known that it was the FBI which initiated this conversation, which is why they've had 'no comment'. So the fake news that the administration was behind this has vanished.

    IDK, I thought that at first. But even some Democrats have a conscience, so maybe he felt a tinge over the Times regurgitating a story from October with the same BS, and which he may have originally been the source of.

    Gov. Terry McAuliffe gave almost a half a million dollars to see that his wife got the Virginia Senate seat and then a short time later, Andrew McCabe was promoted to deputy director of the FBI and assumed an oversight role in the Clinton email investigation.

    All of these people are Obama/Clinton operatives.

    Trump kicked Time out of the press room for being fake because they didn't provide sources...get with the game.

    Well other reporting tells a different story. Gee, who to believe? The WH which lies every day or the IA agencies.

    Well if that had actually been the case, then why did Comey come out 11 days before the election with the Hillary/Weiner email stuff?
