Could a key figure in SpyGate be about to roll over on his ex-boss?
Dirty ex-FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe seems to be getting mighty nervous in advance of the upcoming Justice Department inspector general’s report.
It is being reported that McCabe’s attorney has requested that “Andy” be granted immunity in upcoming testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. McCabe was a key figure in both the Hillary Clinton email Matter as well as Operation Get Trump.
His former boss Comey was recently interviewed by the U.S. Attorney’s office in D.C. in an ominous sign for McCabe who will all but certainly face criminal charges.
Is he now willing to sing about Comey?

Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to grant him immunity in exchange for his testimony at a forthcoming hearing on a report examining the FBI’s handling of its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
“Mr. McCabe is willing to testify, but because of the criminal referral, he must be afforded suitable legal protection,” Michael Bromwich, his lawyer, asked in a Monday letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley.
And if he does not get immunity before testifying, McCabe “will have no choice but to invoke his Fifth Amendment privilege,” said Bromwich.
Grassley wrote immediately back to Bromwich on Monday, saying he would discuss the request with Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and noted that even if she agreed with the request, it would require a two-third vote of the committee.
“Before even beginning to consider whether to initiate that process, the Committee would need to know a lot more about the anticipated scope, nature, and extent of your testimony. The Committee could then informally consult with the [Justice Department] to solicit its views before deciding whether to proceed formally,” said Grassley in the letter.
That McCabe wants immunity should send a cold chill up Comey’s spine.
Maybe he is already in panic mode, he has been keeping a very low profile lately. This is unusual behavior for a man who loves the spotlight and has a book to promote.
Are the rats ready to start eating each other?
