Ooh yes baby … who is your favorite? Dirty Jim, Deep Throat Andy, or Stormy? Come here for all the raw intelligence and integrity porn fit to read, lick, suck up or swallow.
But seriously, there is a lot lost in the extreme emotional taking of sides that leads to bias and tunnel vision. It is not just a matter of ethics as an often distant concept or isolated in impact, but of real victims. What he did, his false narrative, over time, carefully crafted and maintained, was not victim-less inside the FBI or to it as an institution. People have been hurt or died when this level and type of conduct cascades or starts to unravel and that is not a joke.

This one was too low to qualify as a Greek tragedy.
What McCabe did is probably indistinguishable from the kind of lying and half-lying that happens in every corner of government every day of the week. He would have gotten away with it if the FBI and Justice Department had not become the focus of historic partisan ire.

Of course he knew what he was doing, and being of a mindset of deniability and legal jockeying, never thought there would be an OIG investigation, and then lied thinking he could get away, and then thought they would go easy on him.

Using an institution’s capabilities for political and power play purposes does not follow the same rules and invoke the same protections.

When will you find you religion if not now and where can I find this canonization process? Lets fast track things to to heaven, hell, resurrection and redemption.
