The Deep State’s time is up.
That’s the message the Trump administration just sent.
And one Deep State leaker just got the bad news he was dreading.
The Department of Justice Inspector General rocked Washington when news broke that its office forwarded a criminal referral to the United States Attorney in Washington, D.C. regarding former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe repeatedly lying to investigators.
McCabe lied about leaks he engineered during the Clinton email probe that he claimed were authorized by then director James Comey.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe, and he briefly became a resistance and media martyr.
But now he has bigger problems to worry about.
“The Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) has referred fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia for criminal prosecution, multiple reports indicated Thursday.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigation of McCabe’s involvement in leaks to the media concluded last month. The final report indicated three instances in which McCabe lied to investigators, prompting Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire McCabe even before the report was released.
On Thursday, multiple outlets reported that Horowitz’s office also made a criminal referral based on McCabe’s conduct outlined in the report to the office of U.S. attorney Jessie Liu, the top federal prosecutor in the nation’s capital. In contrast to the headline-grabbing criminal referrals made by members of Congress, this type of referral is part of the DOJ’s standard operating procedure and stands a much better chance of resulting in actual criminal charges against McCabe.
It is unclear exactly when the referral was made, exactly which charges were recommended, or how it was received by Liu and her office.”
Attorney General Sessions can prove no one is above the law by insisting the U.S. Attorney move forward with a criminal prosecution.
Do you believe McCabe – who is fiercely anti-Trump – should be prosecuted? Let us know your thoughts.
