FISA Memo: Andrew McCabe gone, Christopher Wray was ‘shocked to his core’ over FISA abuse

FBI Director Christopher Wray was “shocked to his core” after viewing a four-page FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) memo, a source told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. The next day, he reportedly asked Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to resign.

On Tuesday’s edition of Hannity, investigative journalist Sara Carter: “What we know tonight is that FBI Director Christopher Wray went Sunday and reviewed the 4-page FISA memo. The very next day Andrew McCabe was asked to resign. Remember Sean, he was planning on resigning in March. That already came out in December. This time they asked him to go right away. You’re not coming into the office. I heard reports he didn’t even come for the morning meeting, that he didn’t show up.”

Hannity prompted the phrase “shocked him to his core” but Carter repeated it: “Shocked him to his core. And not only that, the Inspector General’s report, I have been told tonight by a number of sources…1.2 million pages. But there are indicators right now that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to actually change their 302s. Those are interviews with witnesses. So basically, every time an FBI agent interviews a witness they have to go back and file that report.”
Of course, changes and modifications would indeed by obstruction of justice.
“This is something the Inspector General is investigating,” Carter continued. “If that is the case, if this is true, and not just alleged, if this is true, McCabe will be fired. I hear they are considering firing him within the next few days if this turns out to be true.”

The four-page memo by House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) reportedly accuses the FBI of abusing FISA warrants to spy on Donald Trump’s campaign. Reports have emerged that McCabe is guilty of asking FBI agents to tamper with witness interviews.

Some have speculated that McCabe could have resigned in anticipation of the release of an inspector general’s report on how the FBI handled the Hillary Clinton email investigation. McCabe was grilled behind closed doors as part of that probe in December, as investigators worked to determine whether the FBI botched the investigation and showed bias towards Clinton.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on Monday that Trump had nothing to do with McCabe’s departure. “I can tell you the president wasn’t part of this decision-making process,” she said, adding that Trump continues to have “full confidence” in Wray, who was appointed to replace former FBI Director James Comey after he was sacked by the US president.
