Former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus told a very interesting story on Meet the Press this weekend. He claims that when the New York Times first broke the story about Russian collusion in the 2016 election, Andrew McCabe came into his office and told him the whole thing was BS.
The Daily Caller has the details:
Reince Priebus Recounts White House Conversation With Andrew McCabe
In an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Priebus said that McCabe walked into his office on Feb. 14, shut the door, and told him point-blank that a New York Times report about alleged contacts between Trump campaign aides and Russian intelligence was “BS.”
That meeting has been the source of allegations that Priebus pressured McCabe to publicly knock down the report of repeated contacts with Russians.
On Feb. 24, CNN published a report citing multiple unnamed sources who said that the FBI rejected the request from McCabe, who left his job as deputy director earlier this week. The article, which has been heavily edited since publication, initially framed the White House and Priebus in a negative light by suggesting that Priebus took a proactive step to ask McCabe to rebut the Times report.

It really does seem like the whole Russia thing is just an attempt to reverse the results of the election.
