Serial liar/disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe appeared on CNN today to talk about the Biden administration’s just-released “National Strategy for Combating Domestic Terrorism,” a document that some worry will be used as the latest launching point for further baseless politically-motivated federal investigations against conservatives.
In announcing the strategy earlier today, one of the incidents of domestic terrorism Attorney General Merrick Garland brought up was the June 14, 2017 Congressional baseball practice mass shooting in which four people were shot, including Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), who was nearly killed by the deranged Bernie Sanders supporter who specifically targeted Republicans for assassination.
During the CNN segment, McCabe was specifically asked if he thought Garland’s mentioning of the baseball field shooting was “significant” in the context of Garland’s other remarks about how the FBI viewed white supremacy as the “top domestic violence threat.” Here’s how McCabe responded:
“But he brought the other side of the equation into it by referring to the shooting of the Congressional baseball practice, and he did it very carefully by saying the shooting by someone who committed the shooting only after he confirmed that the players were Republicans. So I think that reflects the fact that the FBI still doesn’t exactly know what that shooter was up to. They never really uncovered the sort of detailed evidence that laid out a specific plot or an objective. But it is undeniable that he was targeting Republicans. And really, I thought, very effective.”

This… just isn’t true, and conservative talk show host Dana Loesch dropped some inconvenient facts to prove it:
McCabe is a disgrace. Hodgkinson literally had a list of Republican congressional members’s names and verbally confirmed their presences before opening fire according to witnesses and FBI report. https://t.co/uzBTTvODuR
