This is how you end a witch hunt – not with a whimper but with a bang. And that bang is that key FBI insiders, the ones sitting pretty on the 7th floor, who before this were meant to be protecting Comey and McCabe, are no longer.
Instead, they will testify against them.
From True Pundit:
“The inner circle of James Comey and Andrew McCabe on the 7th Floor of FBI HQ has flipped, according to high level Justice Department officials.
The once-loyal cabal of FBI brass and leaders who reigned during the FBI tenures of Comey and McCabe have been testifying against their former bosses, DOJ sources confirm.
For now at least that cooperation involves cooperation with the Inspector General. Soon, that would likely extend to grand juries, according to sources.
In law enforcement circles, these players are referred to as Rats, cops who implicate other cops to save their jobs and pensions. So who is ratting on Comey and McCabe and cooperating with the proceedings against each?
FBI Counterintelligence Head Bill Priestap is the biggest fish, federal law enforcement sources said. And he is a key player here. His cooperation spells trouble for McCabe and likely Comey too.
“Last guy I would have thought would cooperate is cooperating,” one high-ranking Justice official said about Priestap. “He knows about everything the IG is looking at because he was involved in it all.”
The Justice official called Priestap’s cooperation “devastating” especially to McCabe. The source would not elaborate.”
