The Most Plausible Explanation
I've been wading around in this "Deep State" muck for almost a year now. I still don't know what to think. Is Comey a good guy or a bad guy? How about Mueller, or Flynn?
Yesterday I stumbled across this Twitter account - the SIXTEENTH account this guy has had to create because twitter really does not like what he has to say - and he puts it all together so elegantly it's hard not to believe he's spot-on. He provides an explanation to factual events
Using an "unroll" application you can read the whole 50 tweet thread in order
The Clintons, along with Terry McCauliff donated $700k to the campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, wife of then Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, giving her campaign nearly 3x more than that race usually sees. Despite this, he did not recuse himself from the investigation of her email server. The state of Virginia has unique campaign finance laws, allowing a former candidate to keep any leftover funds. It sure appears as if the Clinton donations were a payoff to McCabe. After McCabe was promoted to acting FBI Director, he instructed his underling Peter Strzok to purchase the "Steele Dossier" which was used to get FISA warrants on Trump.
I hope this guy writes a book.
