The Wall Street Journal reports that Andrew McCabe, who resigned as FBI deputy director this week, knew about the thousands of Clinton-related emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop for at least a month before the FBI notified Congress.
McCabe learned about the emails on September 28, 2016. Director James Comey notified Congress a month later.
According to the report, FBI agent Peter Strzok wrote in a text on September 28, 2016 to Lisa Page, “Got called up to Andy’s earlier hundreds of thousands of emails turned over by Weiner’s atty to sdny, includes a ton of material from spouse. Sending team up tomorrow to review … this will never end ….”
SDNY refers to the US Attorneys Office in the Southern District of New York, which was investigating Weiner.
‘Timing looks like hell,’ Strzok said.
‘Yeah, that is awful timing,’ Page responded, adding in another message: ‘It’s a real profile in courag(e), since she knows no charges will be brought’.
