Inspector General recommends criminal investigation into Andrew McCabe

April 19, 2018

  It has been a rough week or so for Andrew McCabe: last week the FBI’s Inspector General released a report which found that he had lied under oath on more than one occasion and yesterday 11 House Republicans sent a letter to Jeff Sessions recommending criminal charges against Andrew McCabe and several other Obama administration officials.

  It is now being reported by CNN that the Inspector General has referred the case to the United States attorney’s office in Washington DC for a possible criminal investigation. Here is more:

The Justice Department’s inspector general referred its findings on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to the US attorney’s office in Washington for possible criminal charges associated with lying to internal investigators, according to a source familiar with the matter.

  Here is more on the Inspector General’s report in case you missed it, and you probably did if you still rely on the mainstream media for your news:

Last week, the IG issued a report finding that McCabe “lacked candor” on four occasions with internal investigators when discussing a Wall Street Journal article about the FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation, according to a copy of the report obtained by CNN.

In addition, the inspector general determined that McCabe was not authorized to disclose the existence of the investigation because it was not within the department’s “public interest” exception for disclosing ongoing investigations.
The disclosure to the Journal was made “in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of department leadership,” the report said.
  While I do not put any stock in the fact 11 Republicans sent Jeff Sessions a letter calling for a criminal investigation into Andrew McCabe because it can easily be written off as a partisan attack this could be a different story. 
  The reason I feel this is a different story is because Jeff Sessions already took the Inspector General’s recommendation to fire Andrew McCabe before he could retire so how can he ignore this recommendation by the same Inspector General?
  If this recommendation is acted on it will be interesting to see if Andrew McCabe strikes a deal with the court and turns on those who are higher up. The House of cards might be starting to fall down, this is getting interesting indeed.

    I am in agreement. This puts Sessions in the hot seat… No way he can recuse this over to nowhere ville. Going to have some fun I think!! Just when it gets the most discouraging. And Comey out there and swinging in the wind….
