The firing of Andrew McCabe is just the beginning of what is to come, according to Former FBI Assistant Director Chris Swecker.
On Friday, Swecker was on Harris Faulkner’s Fox News show, and was discussing topics related to the firing of McCabe. During their discussion, the IG report was brought up, and what Swecker said will have Comey, McCabe and anyone else involved in the FBI scandal very nervous. (VIDEO BELOW)
It has been known for some time now that Jeff Sessions appointed an Inspector General to look in to the handling of the FBI and DOJ’s probe into whether there was collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. You can read more about that HERE.
The Inspector General’s initial report is due out any day now and Swecker believes McCabe’s firing is directly related to the report. Swecker discussed how he saw many FBI agents fired over time for lying to the FBI and believes that plays a part as to why McCabe was fired.
Swecker believes there is “pure TNT” in the IG report that will implicate multiple high-ranking officials from Obama’s FBI and DOJ. Swecker is heard saying:
“The behavior if it’s manifested in the action with your thumb on the scale of a particular investigation, one way or the other, that’s borderline criminal behavior — manipulating an investigation. I think this IG report is going to be particularly impactful, more so than any of these useless congressional investigations. I think you’re going to see some pure TNT come out in this IG report.” Video Below

If Swecker is correct, that will mean potentially very bad news for Former FBI Director James Comey. Web sleuths have already pointed to the idea that McCabe implicated Comey in a crime in his letter to the public following his firing.
McCabe said the Director (Comey) was aware of leaks to the media, which is what McCabe was fired over according to the DOJ’s statement.
Comey, however, claimed while being interrogated by Congress months ago that he never knew of information being leaked to the media. See the 2 statements below.
Time will tell who is telling the truth, and the IG report may do just that.
