Fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee next week about the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.
McCabe, a key figure in the Spygate scandal, signed the 4th and final FISA warrant application on Carter Page in June of 2017.
On Saturday it was reported that McCabe declined to testify next week, citing “manifest danger” of Covid-19 among Committee members.
Two Senators who serve on the Senate Judiciary Committee have tested positive for Covid – Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Mike Lee (R-UT).
McCabe’s legal counsel established several conditions, one of which is that his testimony be provided in-person rather than using Zoom or other video teleconferencing.
“The reason for that condition was – and is because a witness answering questions remotely via videoconference is at a distinct disadvantage at answering those questions,” McCabe’s swamp lawyer Michael Bromwich wrote.
