Disgraced former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe participated in a partisan panel at the University of Chicago last week to discuss the events at the Capitol building on January 6, 2021. No board member found it ironic that McCabe was calling into question anyone’s loyalty to America and its citizens.
McCabe was terminated from his FBI position for lying under oath about his leaks of investigative information about the activities of the Clinton Foundation. He was also a notorious participant in the bogus secret wiretap warrants to spy on the 2016 Trump campaign. The Steele dossier used to obtain warrants was financed by the Hillary Clinton campaign based on fictional Russian disinformation.
In the panel discussion, McCabe compared American conservatives to the Islamic Caliphate. He said that his opinion was based on “spending a lot of time” studying international terrorists and all types of extremists. He then compared the “mass radicalization” he says is occurring on the American right to raise the Islamic caliphate in Syria.
McCabe also said that American political violence is not limited by what occurred at the Capitol. He said school boards and local elections are also subject to widespread violence, leading to a “challenging threat picture.” He considered parents expressing concern at public meetings as “domestic terrorists” and called for a “rapid and complete response” by law enforcement agencies at federal, state, and local levels.
He added that he believes the federal government should enhance its counterterrorism focus to include additional surveillance of “right-wing and domestic violent extremists.” He went on to say that the extra measures must go beyond the “fringes” and look into the “mainstream.” McCabe said that he thinks it is “evident” that violence comes from “business owners, educated, employed white people from the suburbs.”
McCabe called for domestic federal agencies to have power like the National Counterterrorism Center to investigate American citizens inside the U.S.
Adding insult to injury, McCabe concluded his remarks by saying that “no one is above the law.” His statement stands in apparent conflict with the agreement he reached with the Biden Justice Department to expunge his record of law-breaking and lying under oath.
The anniversary of January 6 has shown that Democrats and liberal elites consider publicizing the Capital riot as the key to declaring war on political opponents as domestic terrorists.
