One of the biggest ‘tinfoil conspiracy’ talking points floating around since Trump fired Comey was that the FBI had just asked for more money to investigate the Trump/Russia probe … right before he fired him.
Which of course would make you wonder.
Luckily today, Comey’s #2 aka McCabe put this rumor to rest:
Comey's #2 unequivocally states that, contrary to widespread reports, FBI did not ask for more funding for Trump Russia probe before firing

Unequivocally says no, they did not.
Sorry people who wanted to pretend this was some big conspiracy via that talking point … you lose this one.
McCabe is debunking both White House and anonymous-sourced media in his hearing. Astounding how many anon claims fall under slight pressure.

Anon claims are just that, claims. If someone won’t put their name on a claim then it’s not worth a whole lot.
McCabe: "I strongly believe the Russia investigation is adequately resourced."

Which again would debunk the idea that Trump fired Comey for asking for more money and thus negating the idea he wanted to stop the investigation.
Acting FBI Dir McCabe: "there has been no effort to impede our investigation to date."

Whoops … you mean Trump firing Comey wasn’t an effort to impede the investigation? But that’s the whole narrative from the Left.
