The big news of Thursday was not whether or not there will be a government shutdown (yawn) or whether the wall will or will not be built (it will — eventually) or even that AOC betrayed the citizens of New York by costing them 25,000 Amazon jobs (hey, she’s a socialist).
The big news in what was a relatively big news day was made by fired Acting Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe in snippets from a forthcoming interview on 60 Minutes. McCabe — the man who somehow couldn’t recall what the words “insurance policy” referred to in one of his texts — was promoting a new book he somehow managed to write despite his faulty memory. In the midst of this, he confirmed what many of us long suspected — that he and other major officials (Rod Rosenstein, etc.) of the FBI and the DOJ contemplated, even attempted to some degree, a coup d’état against the president of the United States.
