Grassley Demands Answers On Acting FBI Director’s ‘Apparent’ Conflicts Of Interest

WASHINGTON — Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley fired off a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday questioning numerous probes into acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe and asking whether investigators have found any political conflicts from these inquiries.

In his letter to Rosenstein, Grassley reminded him that he already asked about McCabe’s apparent conflict of interests due to his close relationship with Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, among other issues, and then pointed out that McCabe appears to be the focus of three separate pending investigations.

“First, the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General is examining his failure to recuse himself from the Clinton investigation due to his political relationship with McAuliffe. Second, the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) is investigating allegations that he violated the Hatch Act by engaging in political campaign activities,” Grassley wrote.

The conflict of interest alone should've prevented McCabe from stepping in as acting FBI Director, therefore, why doesn't Grassley recommend his removal immediately? It's not like President Trump hasn't named a successor. Time to step up the pace in draining the swamp rather than just holding inquisitions which are meaningless and wasting taxpayer money!
