Former NFL running back O.J. Simpson detailed how he would have hypothetically murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in a never-before-seen 2006 interview. Fox aired that interview Sunday night on a program titled “The Lost Confession.”
“This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally,” McCabe said. “It is part of this administration’s ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the special counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the special counsel’s work.”
That’s significantly more full-throated than even Comey was after his firing. The question now is: What does McCabe know, and how hard does he push back We have yet to see what’s in the inspector general’s report, and it’s quite possible that it will undercut McCabe’s credibility and prove that his firing was warranted. Having his name dragged through the mud could temper McCabe’s public comments.
But if it doesn’t, Trump and Sessions have just created a very motivated enemy.
The New York Jets, originally slotted at No. 6 in the first round, traded up to land the No. 3 spot from the Indianapolis Colts. The Jets gave the Indianapolis their first-round pick along with two 2018 second-round picks (Nos. 37 and 49) and a 2019 second-rounder to move up three spots.
The Jets, remember, lost out on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes and quickly moved to Plan B by signing veterans Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater. The final piece of that plan, it appears, is to nab one of the highly-touted quarterbacks in the first round of the draft.
With the trade, the new top six teams in the draft are, in order: Cleveland, New York Giants, New York Jets, Cleveland, Denver and Indianapolis.
Cleveland traded for quarterback Tyrod Taylor and already declared him the starter for 2018. But it could still draft another quarterback as well as a playmaker, perhaps running back Saquon Barkley.
That means at least three quarterbacks could be gone before the Broncos are up.
