Fired FBI Deputy Director McCabe Won’t Face Charges For Lying

508

In a statement from McCabe’s legal counsel, Michael R. Bromwich and David Schertler, the NYT report appears to have been confirmed:

“We learned this morning through a phone call from the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office that was followed by a letter that the Justice Department’s criminal investigation of Andrew McCabe has been closed. This means that no charges will be brought against him based on the facts underlying the Office of the Inspector General’s April 2018 report. At long last, justice has been done in this matter. We said at the outset of the criminal investigation, almost two years ago, that if the facts and the law determined the result, no charges would be brought. We are pleased that Andrew McCabe and his family can go on with their lives without this cloud hanging over them.”

And the letter from the DoJ confirms it:

McCabe was literally fired for lying to the FBI.

Roger Stone and General Flynn were destroyed for same.

President Trump needs to pardon them now. Today. Don’t wait another second.

If Barr has an issue, he can resign. He dropped the ball here. I’m more furious by the minute.”

With General Flynn battling the system (and his previous legal team), and Roger Stone’s case jumping from re-trial to a now-withdrawn reccomendation of up to nine years in jail, it will come as no surprise that, according to  The New York Times, former deputy F.B.I. director Andrew McCabe will not face charges in an investigation into whether he lied to investigators about a media leak.

As a reminder, the investigation into Mr. McCabe grew out of findings from the Justice Department inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz. He faulted Mr. McCabe in 2018 for misleading investigators when asked about the disclosure of information in 2016 to a Wall Street Journal reporter about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

According to the ubiquitous “people familiar with the matter,” NYT claims that a day after AG Barr complained about President Trump’s tweets, the decision not to charge McCabe appears to be a sign that Barr wants to show that the Justice Department is independent from Mr. Trump.

We strongly suggest that is a false assumption, but Mr. McCabe’s supporters viewed the investigation as politically motivated and inextricably tainted by Mr. Trump’s relentless attacks…. whereas, of course, probes into everyone whoever even breathed in the same room as Trump (or Putin) is not?

Of course, this anonymously sourced rumor-mongery – as usual – but we look forward to Barr’s strong denial, and/or Trump’s angry tweet at this decision.

  1. So he gets a reprieve from lying. Gee just like Brennan and Clapper and the rest of them.

    Well only can hope when the Durham report comes out Mr. McCabe is drug back in regarding his signatures on fraudulent FISA applications.

    If not, shows the two-tiered justice system on Democrats who use government tools like the FISA court, the FBI, the CIA to spy on Americans. And also to try to “fix” elections to their advantage.

    And if this happens, we all know that the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and this Great Nation is doomed because both Democrats and Never Trumper Republicans who “appease” to feel relevant.

    Impatiently waiting for some kind of justice and what I’m seeing is disgusting.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD HELP THE USA!

    • Thank You Karen, The TRUTH of the Matter Perfectly Said. The Justice Department better start handing out Justice. This is ONLY a 1 Tier Justice System in USA!!! Maybe The Justice Dept needs some refresher Classes. Continuing Ed for these so called Honest highly educated Baffoons! It’s a disgrace. Maybe Barr had to let these Scum Off knowing a more Damaging charge will be coming! I Hope so!!! These Elitist should know better and should be held to the highest Standard of Law because they are enforcing it. They know Right and Wrong. There has to be ZERO Tolerance and Excuses for FBI and Justice Dept. They set the Example for the citizens by Practicing what they Preach! Justice better Prevail. Thank God for Trump exposing them all. He can Tweet all he wants. Democrats do NOT like it when they can not control the Narrative. TWEET AWAY PRESIDENT TRUMP, TWEET AWAY or THEY WILL SWEEP EVERYTHING UNDER THE RUG!!!

  2. Horowitz could only ‘refer’. He had limited scope thanks to weak-kneed AG Sessions, and never-Trumper Rosenstein.
    McCabe is not off the hook. He will still need to answer to the Durham report findings. That’s the trouble of having so many ‘investigations’ and investigators. Each one has to have their day in court. The demonrats are lauding his ‘victory’ though. It’s a newsworthy ‘win’ for them, to promote their demon-master’s agenda.
    The Flynn and Stone cases (and possibly Manafort) will most likely be dismissed or re-tried due to demonrat malfeasances. Both had ‘evidence’ that was manufactured, that will not be admitted on re-trial. Both include ‘process crimes’ that other’s have been allowed to pass on.
    There is a two-tiered justice system. The last three years have proven that without a doubt. Clinton is still free . . .

  3. Before the investigation is completed by Durham It may be advisable for McCabe to quit poping his gum’s about how he was treated. I believe that based on his position at the F.B.I.a number of event’s were a result of his direction so he’s no MR Clean.

    • He’s been in the swamp too long. Like any other demon, he thinks he’s covered all his bases; still has dirt on someone farther up the foodchain. Or he’s just plain stupid!
      He should have left the country, and phoned-in his ‘commentary’ to CNN . . . they love other-country-loyalty. Of course, he’s broke now that we “stole” his pension . . .

      • Now if we can just go get Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Srtzok, Page, Baker, Yates, Boente, the Ohrs, the Bidens, the Clintons, Obama, Lynch, Holder, Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, the ‘Squad’, and Waters . . .

  4. Of course McCabe won’t be prosecuted he is one of the anointed. I am surprised he hasn’t filed suit for reinstatement to his FBI position and back pay! We all waited for the Horowitz Report with bated breath. When it came out, nada. Now we are waiting for the Durham Report. What is it going to be? Probably nothing just like all the rest. All the people who were involved with the attempted coup of President Trump will walk free without a doubt. They are all members of the anointed class. The entrenched bureaucracy is alive and well.

  5. Liberals are habitual liars, rat Schiff and collective rats nests or colonies, lowest forms of life on this planet and ” the politicians are the worst of them all.”
    The pretenses that assume the ignorance of the american public is over…liberal fairytale dreams of a one world dictatorship and police state at the expense of world freedom based on false wars and propaganda while socialists, not american interests, fund foreign governments.
    Liberals didnt offer americans more security in any sense of legitimate national security interests, they built nsa layers around themselves to protect themselves and their rats for destroying or helping to destroy the constitution, the economy and the rights and liberties of the american public while attempting to disarms us as a nation.
    legislate the demand for voter i.d. to help regulate the legitimacy of the vote.
