andrew mccabe is a liar and a lawbreaker. And the deep state – at least as of today – is not going to do a thing about it.
From Eric Tucker and Michael Balsamo’s article for the Associated Press:
Federal prosecutors have declined to charge former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, closing an investigation into whether the longtime target of President Donald Trump’s ire lied to federal officials about his involvement in a news media disclosure, McCabe’s legal team said Friday.
The action resolves a criminal investigation that began nearly two years ago with a referral from the Justice Department’s inspector general’s office, which concluded that McCabe had repeatedly lied about having authorized a subordinate to share information with a newspaper reporter for a 2016 article about an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
The case was handled by the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington, which was at the center of a public rift with Justice Department leadership this week over the recommended sentence for Trump ally Roger Stone.
On Friday, prosecutors notified McCabe’s attorneys in a phone call and a letter that they were closing the case. The letter, signed by the chief of the office’s public corruption unit, did not give a precise reason but said the decision was reached after “careful consideration” and “based on the totality of the circumstances and all of the information known to the government at this time.”
Translation: he’s a liar, we know he’s a liar, and we’re letting him off the hook.
This, while Roger Stone has to wonder if he’ll die in jail.
The “prosecutors” (sorry, that word has to be put in quotation marks here) won’t say why they are giving mccabe a free pass.
But I think I know why. Wrong party.
How sick does this have to get before the necessary steps are taken and we have one set of rules for both sides of the aisle?
It can’t come soon enough.
