Tuesday's HOT MIC
Sara Carter and John Solomon have been killing it at Circa News lately, breaking one story after another which the mainstream media somehow keep missing.
In their latest bombshell, they report that acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is currently being investigated by the Office of U.S. Special Counsel for violating the Hatch Act, which prohibits FBI agents from campaigning in political races.
Former Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz, who is suing the FBI and McCabe alleging sexual discrimination during her 16-year career, filed the complaint alleging the social media photos are evidence of possible Hatch Act violations.
But the law imposes a tough standard for FBI employees, prohibiting partisan campaigning at any time. FBI employees “may not campaign for or against candidates or otherwise engage in political activity in concert with a political party, a candidate for partisan political office, or a partisan political group,” the law states.
Gritz argued in her complaint to the OSC that the photos suggest McCabe violated that standard.
“As a former FBI agent, it is my understanding that we were held to a higher level with regard to the Hatch Act,” Gritz wrote in her OSC complaint. “While I’m filing this complaint, I am doing it due to the large number of current, former and retired FBI agents who know if they were acting such as McCabe we’d be already on leave without pay, under investigation and assured of being in violation. We are all under the impression that these are, in fact, violations.”
Hey-hey, ho-ho, maybe it's time for acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to go?
