Earlier this week, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was supposed to testify before the House Intelligence Committee led by Chair Devin Nunes. At the last minute, McCabe canceled his appearance.
South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy is now making a prediction.
He told the host on Fox News, “I’ll be a little bit surprised if he is still an employee of the FBI this time next week.”
So what does Gowdy know?
When McCabe didn’t show, sources told Fox News reporter Chad Pergram that the reason for the cancellation over concern that he would be asked about Bruce Ohr’s wife.
Ohr was recently demoted in the Justice Department over potential conflicts of interest relating to the Fusion GPS firm and the 2016 presidential election.

The Justice Department has claimed that McCabe had a “scheduling error” that caused him to miss the hearing. Needless to say, the Committee is suspicious of that excuse. They have rescheduled the hearing for December 19. Committee Chair Devin Nunes told Fox, “We have a commitment, again, that McCabe is going to show up next Tuesday [Dec. 19] at 2:00. [S]o we will be following up with letters … if none of that is followed up with, then we will move forward with contempt and we will issue additional subpoenas.”
A big part of McCabe’s testimony would be about Former Deputy to the Assistant Director at the FBI Peter Strzok.
Strzok was removed for Robert Mueller’s special counsel due to a bias against President Trump. Hundreds of text messages have been revealed between him and another FBI agent that prove that bias.
Now the country will wait to see if Deputy Director McCabe sees fit to show up at his rescheduled hearing. Of course, if Gowdy’s predictions come true then he will be removed from his FBI position before that.
