More evidence of a cover-up.

……the important news in the report of Inspector General Horowitz’s report is the August 12, 2016 call to McCabe from the Obama DOJ regarding the Clinton Foundation investigation.
Horowitz found that McCabe lacked candor in describing how he authorized his in-house FBI special counsel (not Mueller) to reveal the phone call to Wall Street Journal reporter Devlin Barrett. By doing so, McCabe confirmed there was an FBI investigation of the Clinton Foundation.
Barrett was working on an article criticizing McCabe and the FBI on the basis that McCabe had shut down the investigation.
The Horowitz report discloses:
“McCabe told the OIG that on August 12, 2016, he received a telephone call from PADAG regarding the FBI’s handling of the CF Investigation about FBI agents taking overt steps in the CF Investigation during the presidential campaign (the “PADAG call”). McCabe said that PADAG expressed concerns. According to McCabe, he pushed back, asking “are you telling me that I need to shut down a validly predicated investigation?” McCabe told us that the conversation was “very dramatic” and he never had a similar confrontation like the PADAG call with a high level Department official in his entire FBI career.”
In federal-speak, “PADAG” means “Principal Associate Deputy General.” “CF” means Clinton Foundation. “OIG” means Office of Inspector General.
It is not clear who was the PADAG on August 12* who made the call. Loretta Lynch was the attorney general. The critical fact is that McCabe understood the DOJ attorney to say the FBI had to “shut down” the Clinton Foundation because of the presidential election. You do not have to be an FBI agent to conclude that the Obama DOJ believed that the investigation of the Clinton Foundation would hurt Hillary’s election bid.
While Mueller searches in vain for the nonexistent collusion and obstruction of justice by President Trump, there is clear evidence in the Horowitz report of obstruction of justice to interfere with the 2016 election by the Obama DOJ.
……But if McCabe is telling the truth that he received the phone call from the Obama DOJ, then that is clear evidence that the Obama DOJ tried to stop the investigation of the Clinton Foundation because it would damage Hillary’s election bid.
Evidently, the order to shut down the investigation into Hillary’s corrupt Foundation came right from Obama.
