Reading today’s report from Inspector General Horowitz.
McCabe’s misstep was responding to the hammering he was taking from Wall Street Journal concerning the Clinton Foundation investigation.
WSJ had McCabe’s frequency, and when they rang his bell, he cracked. He instigated a leak to protect his own reputation and not to protect the public’s interest. And he did so through by an unnamed source in the newspaper, not publicly.
So it was not Trump that broke McCabe. It was the Wall Street Journal all along.
