Trump=Stalin. Well, it does make for a nice change of pace from Trump=Hitler . . .

On Joy Reid’s show today, MSNBC analyst Malcolm Nance accused President Trump of using KGB tactics in the firing of Andrew McCabe and related moves. Said Nance:

“[Trump’s move] comes out of an older playbook, the KGB’s playbook . . . Donald Trump is literally playing by the Russian playbook on this.”

Reid and Nance, of course, ignore the facts behind the firing. McCabe’s exit wasn’t a devious KGB plot orchestrated by President Trump. Rather, as the National Review has reported:

“The FBI’s Office of Personal Responsibility has recommended the firing of former deputy director Andrew McCabe, who is accused of serious misconduct.

“The recommendation apparently resulted from a report by the Justice Department’s inspector general, which found that McCabe leaked sensitive details about the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation to a Wall Street Journal reporter and then lied about it to the IG’s office.”
