The Noose Tightens

I keep telling ya..

 

First it was Comey, now it’s McCabe, there will be more.

US attorney recommends proceeding with charges against McCabe, as DOJ rejects last-ditch appeal

 

U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against Andrew McCabe, Fox News has learned, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official and current CNN contributor.

McCabe — the former deputy and acting director of the FBI — appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, but he rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The potential charges relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements concerning a Hillary Clinton-related investigation.

A source close to McCabe’s legal team said they received an email from the Department of Justice which said, “The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office.”

McCabe spent 21 years with the FBI. He became the acting director in May 2017 after President Trump fired former director James Comey.

McCabe’s legal team met with Liu in person to make an appeal not to move forward with any prosecution. They also met with Rosen, in person, for the same reason, according to a person familiar with the meetings.

McCabe’s team also sent an “extensive” letter to Rosen following the meetings, laying out their reasoning against moving forward with a prosecution, according to the source.

Last month, a source close to the process told Fox News that McCabe had a “target on his back” because of the Justice Department inspector general findings.

Snip

Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe in March 2018 after the inspector general found he had repeatedly misstated his involvement in a leak to The Wall Street Journal regarding an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

The IG report faulted McCabe for leaking information to then-Wall Street Journal reporter Devlin Barrett for an Oct. 30, 2016 story titled “FBI in Internal Feud Over Hillary Clinton Probe.” The story — written just days before the presidential election – focused on the FBI announcing the reopening of the Clinton investigation after finding thousands of her emails on a laptop belonging to former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, who was married to Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

The Journal’s account of the call said a senior Justice Department official expressed displeasure to McCabe that FBI agents were still looking into the Clinton Foundation, and that McCabe had defended the agent’s authority to pursue the issue.

That leak confirmed the existence of the probe, the report said, which Comey had up to that point refused to do.

The report said that McCabe “lacked candor” in a conversation with Comey when he said he had not authorized the disclosure and didn’t know who had done so. The IG also found that he lacked candor when questioned by FBI agents on multiple occasions since that conversation.

McCabe has denied any wrongdoing and said the inspector general’s conclusions relied on mischaracterizations and omissions, including of information favorable to McCabe.

My emphasis.

Notice that a great deal of this has to do with Hillary Clinton and The Clinton Foundation. Notice also that an “Unnamed Senior Justice Department Official” was unhappy about the continued investigation of Hillary and the Clinton Foundation.

Damn, I couldn’t possibly even venture a guess as to who that could have been.

Lynch

Nor could I possibly venture a guess as to why this person would be so concerned.

Tarmac

Nor what that person could possibly have to gain by having these investigations get buried and die.

RBG

McCabe is dirty, there is no doubt there, Comey is too.

These two are just stepping stones.

There are much bigger fish yet to catch and fry.

gallows humor

    • Wont be long now finding out, real soon here Barr’s gonna have to pull an obama size rabbit out his arse, or it will be clear he is another Clinton crime syndicate fixer who has bullshitted Trump and the rest of us.

      Ol’ Ace at Ace of Spades comes up with some good ones once in a while.
      If this ain’t the truth stated politely:

      Ace –
      “I think they do realize that their recent policy of zealously prosecuting the Commoners while permitting the Gentry to merely retire with their full pensions intact was beginning to spur the Commoners into considering a revolution.”

      “I hope they don’t think the Commoners will be appeased with one medium-sized fish.”

  1. I think that some scalps have to be taken in this case, because the alternative
    is to watch the countdown to the destruction of the American republic. There
    is enough evidence that at the very least a half-dozen major players can be
    indicted, and with any luck, one or more will rat out others.

    I think we can stick a fork in the state of Marxifornia. There is no rule of law
    when a woman who committed multiple felonies (Felicity Huffman) was given
    a sentence of 14 days just because she is a rich liberal. President Trump
    on the other hand, still has control of the executive branch and there are still
    people in the FBI and at the Justice Department loyal to the Constitution and
    not a politician or political party.

    There cannot be two standards of justice, one that would get my Prole ass thrown
    in stir when a political elite gets a pass for the same crime. The founding principle
    of our justice system is rooted in concept that no man is above the law. If this
    case is not dealt with properly America will be as dead as Trayvon Martin within
    at most a few decades.
