Sharyl Attkisson seems to think that McCabe leaking to the press should be the least of his worries.
Not sure what their scope is –but leaking to the press is (to me) the least of the alleged crimes involving some of our intel officials/DOJ/FBI. Misuse of intel tools, unmaskings and FISA court is much more important. https://t.co/KhiysUFjbQ

And reading the piece she shared, we get why she felt the need to write out the alleged crimes committed against Trump by the intelligence community.
He continued: “A leak about the investigation occurred in late May, very close in time to the news that Mr. McCabe had written memos that suggested potential criminal conduct by the president. Today’s leak about a procedural step taken more than a month ago — occurring in the midst of a disastrous week for the president — is a sad and poorly veiled attempt to try to distract the American public.”
The Justice Department’s inspector general concluded that McCabe repeatedly misled investigators about contacts with a Wall Street Journal reporter in 2016.
Add all of this to the laundry list Sharyl shared and DAMN … McCabe has some ‘splainin’ to do.
You did not honestly think they were going to HIGHLIGHT the abuse of Power did you? That sorta thing climbs the ladder pretty rapidly & tends to burn VIP

Nope, and that’s why Sharyl pointed it out.
I'm certainly glad that one journalist (you) continues to look into the lawbreaking of other groups of gov. people.

There is so much out there about what may or may not have happened with the intelligence community via Obama during the election, it’s honestly very challenging to keep it all straight. Which is part of the reason we ‘stalk’ Sharyl’s timeline.
Something stinks in the District of Columbia and it’s rotten to the core.

It’s certainly starting to feel that way.
