Collusion for Clinton

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 8, 2019

MADISON — Former U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy looked deeply into the damage done to reputations and lives in the wake of the twisted “Russian collusion” narrative and Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation into it. 

But the destruction the politically motivated probe did to American governance has yet to be fully measured, the former federal prosecutor said.  

“It’s been a tremendous hamstring or straitjacket on the (Trump administration),” McCarthy told conservative talk show host Vicki McKenna this week on NewsTalk 1310 WIBA in Madison. “What good, quality person wants to do the kind of jobs we need them to do, wants to come in to a government and serve it under circumstances where … you end up having to lawyer up the next week because everybody in the administration is under investigation and everyone is suspicious of one another and who’s talking to which agency and all that stuff. It makes it impossible to recruit good people into the government and really difficult to govern.” 

McCarthy, senior fellow at National Review Institute and Fox News contributor, is author of the best-selling book, “Ball of Collusion: The Plot to Rig an Election and Destroy a Presidency.” It is a breathtaking exploration of hubris, of a silent coup, and yes, of the Deep State. 

“The real collusion was that the Obama administration put the awesome powers of the federal government — law enforcement and intelligence — at the service of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign,” wrote Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass in an overview of McCarthy’s book. 

McCarthy this week discussed his book at an event in Madison, hosted by the Badger Institute and National Review Institute.
