Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is out of the doghouse. Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe in 2018, just a few days before McCabe was supposed to retire and start drawing his gigantic federal pension. McCabe had violated the law by leaking classified (but fake) Russia collusion information to the media, and by lying under oath when asked about the leaks.
This infuriating development in the Russia collusion hoax is par for the course for The Swamp. It’s now clear from new developments that tie the Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) kidnapping plot to the January 6 protests that the FBI and the Department of Justice have never stopped trying to frame President Donald Trump.
McCabe sued the Department of Justice in 2019 over his firing, and this week he won the case. The US government has been ordered by the judge in the case to rescind McCabe’s firing, to declare that McCabe has retired in good standing, and award him his full pension. McCabe will also be allowed to collect about $200,000 in back pay. And again, this is a guy who helped to fabricate the Russia hoax and foist it on the American people to sway the outcome of an election. When that didn’t work, the Russia hoax continued, for the purpose of undermining a duly elected president who threatened The Swamp.
The Russia hoax eventually died on the vine, but the FBI’s operation against Trump lives to this day.
Julie Kelly at American Greatness has uncovered a nationwide operation of the FBI to target suspected Trump supporters as “domestic terrorists.” That operation started well before the 2020 election in Michigan, continued with undercover FBI agents breaking windows and stirring up trouble at the US Capitol on January 6th, and now continues with the DOJ targeting parents who protest woke school boards as “domestic terrorists.”
This deliberate FBI targeting of law-abiding Americans is dubbed “Operation Cold Snap.”
Remember that bizarre “kidnapping plot” against Governor Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan? The one where 10 of the 12 alleged kidnappers turned out to be FBI agents and informants who hatched the entire plot? That was one of the beginning stages of Operation Cold Snap.
The FBI started this plot to undermine Donald Trump’s chances of reelection. They assumed that militia members and Second Amendment groups were more likely to be Trump supporters, so the FBI staged a major operation to smear Trump supporters as terrorists. The operation got under way in the summer of 2021.
Undercover spooks even set up a major “militia conference” in Ohio in June of 2020. The pretext of the conference was to protest COVID lockdowns which were still in place in blue states. That’s where the 10 (or possibly more) FBI agents and informants found a couple of patsies to engage in the plot to “kidnap” Gretchen Whitmer. This operation, according to Julie Kelly’s reporting, was being run by the head of the Detroit FBI field office – a guy named Steven M. D’Antuono.
The Whitmer “plot” was designed to coincide with early voting in Michigan. When the plotters were initially arrested, Joe Biden’s campaign immediately – and VERY conveniently – had a statement ready to go, which was probably prepared and handed to him by the FBI. Here’s what the dementia potato read off the teleprompter from his basement campaign headquarters in Delaware on October 8, 2020:
“There is a through line from President Trump’s dog whistles and tolerance of hate, vengeance, and lawlessness to plots such as this one. He is giving oxygen to the bigotry and hate we see on the march in our country.”
This was, once again, direct interference in a presidential campaign by the FBI. But it didn’t stop with the fake Whitmer kidnapping plot.
Steven M. D’Antuono was promoted, right around the time of the election, to run the coveted Washington, DC FBI field office. This was partly a promotion, and partly to allow D’Antuono to continue running Operation Cold Snap against Trump supporters. The FBI’s direct involvement in transforming the mostly peaceful protests on January 6th into an “insurrection” was just a continuation of the fake Whitmer kidnapping operation. They created a narrative that rightwing white supremacist domestic terrorists who follow Trump’s orders are trying to overthrow the government.
One connection that Julie Kelly doesn’t make in her excellent report on this, which you can read HERE, is this: I believe Operation Cold Snap is still going on. Calling parents “domestic terrorists” for protesting woke school boards is just a continuation of Operation Cold Snap. Justifiably angry parents are the new Russian collusion, as far as the corrupt FBI is concerned.
