With the release of his new book “The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump,” yesterday, former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe made it officially known that he believes President Donald Trump is a potential national security threat to the United States.
And although several right-wing pundits were critical of his investigation, McCabe stood firmly by it and claimed that Congress was well aware of it and that it followed legal protocol each step of the way.
Then, later in the day, national security expert Samantha Vinograd made an appearance on CNN and chimed in on the matter. Based on her observations, she can’t help but wonder if the investigation is still ongoing, and more importantly, what it means for potential Russian interference in US policy.
“Is that investigation still ongoing?” Vinograd asked.
“McCabe has said that the President’s moves to undercut investigations, to believe Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence officials, to make personnel decisions based on Russia related matters, all led to this investigation,” she continued.
“McCabe would have laid that out before the Gang of Eight. But just in the past few days, the counterintelligence red flags are flying a lot higher than they did arguably than when this investigation was first launched,” she opined.
“And that this investigation is continuing and there is still a chance that Vladimir Putin is controlling the White House,” she concluded.
