WATCH: Today Show host holds Andrew McCabe’s feet to the fire and it’s AMAZING!

This is incredible, and it’s something you just don’t see much from the liberal media in our day.

In an interview this morning, Today Show host Savannah Guthrie actually put Andrew McCabe on the spot with regard to his being fired from the FBI, asking him why he should be believed now when he was fired for lying.

And then when he began to squirm and spin, she called him out on it!

Guthrie used Rosenstein’s accusation that McCabe is lying to begin this line of questioning. When she put him on the spot about his being fired from the FBI, that’s when it got interesting.



He first blamed all of this on Trump attacking him, and said he believed he was fired for opening an investigation into Trump.

But Guthrie hit back saying none of that was in the FBI Inspector General’s report, pointing out they had accused him of lying (lack of candor) and that’s why they fired him. She then asked if he was suggesting that the FBI Inspector General was in on this conspiracy against him and was making up this report a pretext to fire him.

McCabe basically said yes, suggesting that this IG report isn’t like any he’s ever read in his long career of reading IG reports! Wow!

Guthrie then responded that the IG report was quite detailed, accusing him of this ‘lack of candor’ four different times, suggesting his lies weren’t just misunderstood or due to confusion.

McCabe didn’t have much else to say, other than he’s suing the FBI for being fired and he’ll have to wait to go through each of those incidents in court.

That was amazing. Guthrie really did a great job of hitting McCabe with the facts of his firing as he was spewing his conspiracy theories. He really sounded like a loon!

Maybe Guthrie has tired of being called out as a biased DNC reporter. I’m surprised! Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. Color me shocked.

I don’t think that Mr McCabe has come to terms with the fact that because of the evidence he was fired.

What the he!! does his having a twenty-one year career have to do with why he was fired? So, according to McCabe his having a stellar record with the FBI for twenty-one years absolves him of his crimes. He then has the temerity to question and criticize I.G., Michael Horowitz’s report.

Get used to wearing orange, Andy.

I’d like to think there’s a journalistic reawakening on the horizon. It would definitely spell the end of the Left.

The MSM will try and paint McCabe as an incompetent government employee who botched the Russia investigation… so…. the Mueller report will have NO CREDIBILITY. Adam “The little piece of” Schiff will “reopen” the investigation because McCabe “botched” the original one.

Watch as the MSM throws McCabe under the bus… not because they’re journalists but because they’re mad things didn’t work out for the LEFT and anti-Trumpists on the Right. You see, Trump wasn’t supposed to be in the White House anymore. He was supposed to resign 6 months after taking office.

Agreed, that was probably about as tough an interview as you could ever expect coming from the corrupt MSM. Imagine McCabe or Comey or any of the other lying weasels that inhabited Obama’s corrupt agencies actually having to sit for a really tough interview. They choose to go only where they know going in, the interviewer is on their side. Big tough, macho man heroes that they imagine themselves to be, even Martha McCallum would chew them up and spit them out and they’d whimper away like whipped puppies.

“Guthrie really did a great job”

Sadly, we’re so used to the media doing a poor job that we’re happy and grateful when they do the job that they should be doing most of the time.

It’s like we’ve be affected by the Stockholm Syndrome.

If you believe for a second the MSM is “holding McCabe’s feet to the fire,” because they’re behaving like journalists… YOU ARE WRONG.

The MSM is mad at McCabe because this Russia investigation was a HOAX. Period. End of story.

Once these guys are caught, it’s odd that it always seems to be “Trump’s fault” somehow. It sounds like he’s a criminal and I hope he gets his.

And it’s unusual that Guthrie was pretending to be honest for once… Weird.

“I enjoyed a twenty one year career in the FBI at every level an agent can serve within
the FBI and with absolutely not a single blemish on that career.”

So he says. How do we know this liar is telling the truth about that? How do we
know that he just never got caught before doing unjust and unethical things? A man’s
character just doesn’t change overnight. If he stepped out of the boundary of integrity
at this point in his career he probably did it many times in the past….just never got caught.

McCabe is basically “Team Hillary” and Guthrie “Team Obama”.
If the whole conspiracy would ever be exposed Team Hillary would be first to suffer with Team Obama trying to isolate from that.

Many, including some on the right are automatically saying that no one should believe anything McCabe says because he was fired for his lies. I don’t take that position. No doubt McCabe is doing some lying, but it is hard to know where. When he talked about Rosenstein being willing to wear a wire, and that it wasn’t a joke or sarcastic, I absolutely believe him. Rosenstein has been in on the attempted coup from the beginning. And, yes Rosenstein is that unethical. The part of the interview from above that is getting much attention is when he talked about briefing the Gang of 8 that a counter-intelligence investigation had been opened into Trump Russian collusion on the same day Rosenstein announced the appointment of Mueller. That was on May 17, 2017 The Gang of 8 at that time was, McConnell, Ryan, Burr, Nunes, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff and Warner. McCabe… Read more »

When his lawsuit against the fbi goes nowhere, McCabe can always team up with Alex Jones.

Don’t give the media too much credit, folks. Look closer.
They’re calling him a liar….not because they want to hold a leftist accountable. Think about it. The best defense they have is to call him a liar, because if he was telling the truth in his interview and his book, every single suspicion and conspiracy theory about the “deep state” trying to overthrow Trump is accurate. He slipped up and talked about their end game and now they need to destroy his credibility.

Can’t help but notice how McCabe makes obvious he doesn’t like the IG report and the conclusion it draws, but he LOVED HIM some Michael Steele / FALSE Dossier, because THAT phony report draws a conclusion he likes. The water is too muddy now to EVER see the real story at the bottom of the Russian Collusion / IG investigation, and that’s a shame because Trump, while a GIANT A$$-CLOWN most of the time, was the target of a quiet, behind the scenes coup and this FACT cannot be ignored, despite whatever personal feelings one has for the schmuck. Peter Strzok’s texts are making more and more sense. TRZOK: I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s [McCabe’s] office—that there’s no way he gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re… Read more »

Wow, Savannah Guthrie gave a tough interview to a liberal. Unbelievable. Guess it is one of those random acts of journalism that happen on rare occasions on NBC. Normally they are slobbering all over any Trump haters they bring on the air.

“Guthrie really did a great job of hitting McCabe with the facts….”

She’s a very obvious Democrat operative/activist like the rest of the MSM anchors, but this is probably her one moment to try and regain a shred of credibility.
Don’t expect to see it happen again for a few years.

You would think someone under investigation by a grand jury would show a little humility. He’s still patting himself on the back and still hating on Trump. SMH

Why do people go on these shows to talk about things they can’t talk about because they are about to be in court? So much stupidity.

Good on the interviewer for actually doing her job and catching him in the lie.

She mauled him with basic, reasonable questions and his response was mealy-mouthed and pathetic. If the best that McCabe can come up with is that the IG conspired against him but he can’t even come straight out and deny lying because he knows that the evidence is against him then he’s really wasting money on that civil lawsuit.
