Wonder how often these "scheduling problems" happen....
Seems this one is rather convenient for McCabe attempting to get his story right.
Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who was reportedly scheduled to testify behind closed doorsin front of the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, will instead meet next week due to a "scheduling error," Department of Justice officials told Fox News.
McCabe’s testimony was likely to, at least in part, focus on Peter Strzok’s role in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Strzok is a former deputy to the assistant director at the FBI who was removed from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's staff after Mueller learned Strzok had exchanged anti-Trump texts with a colleague.
House investigators previously told Fox News they have long regarded Strzok as a key figure in the chain of events when the bureau, in 2016, received the infamous anti-Trump “dossier,” which launched a counterintelligence investigation into possible Russian meddling in the election.
But then they add this little tidbit....
“This was a routine scheduling error after the dates were switched on an internal email that we are happy to provide the committee,” a Justice Department official told Fox News. “The FBI regrets the error, and we look forward to making both witnesses (the alleged FBI handler for Christopher Steele and McCabe) available prior to the Christmas recess."
So they had 2 scheduling errors that happened for 2 people that were supposed to talk? Convenient!
McCabe has an Ohr problem,” one Congressional source said.
The supposition is that Justice Department officials realized McCabe would face questions about Ohr and he is not prepared to respond.
The committee is prepared to subpoena all Justice Department documents and records related to the scheduling debacle, the source said. The committee is also prepared to subpoena McCabe to compel his testimony later this week.
Some Capitol Hill sources have expressed reservations that McCabe could retire before various Congressional investigators get to him.
Seems more likely this is about Ohr....and if McCabe retires prior to this all being hashed out, well that would be convenient as well I guess....wondering if we start seeing a cascade of retiring intelligence folks soon....
