Investigators ‘seriously considering’ charges against Andrew McCabe

June 1, 2018

  Back in March, on the recommendation of the FBI, Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe days before he was set to retire. Roughly one month later the Inspector General recommended opening a criminal investigation into the allegations that Andrew McCabe lied under oath three times.

  The investigation is now underway and according to this story the investigators are “seriously considering” charging Andrew McCabe, here is more:

Investigators from the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office recently interviewed former FBI director James B. Comey as part of a probe into whether his deputy, Andrew McCabe, broke the law by lying to federal agents — an indication the office is seriously considering whether McCabe should be charged with a crime, a person familiar with the matter said.

Lying to federal investigators can carry a five-year prison sentence, though McCabe disputes that he intentionally misled anyone. Comey’s interview, while significant, does not indicate prosecutors have reached any conclusions, and people familiar with the process said it is not surprising given the allegations McCabe faces.

  I am not expecting anything to come from this, but somebody has to be the fall guy so who knows.

    So then he alleges he didn’t lie on purpose? That would be lie number four but whose counting?

    Are you seriously serious? Of course this is going nowhere.

    Supposedly McCabe and Comey are trying to blame the other. Will the US Attorney let McCabe off in order to take down Comey? McCabe appears to be pretty entrenched in his innocence which could be his undoing.

      I am hoping they are able to play one against the other and one goes down, hopefully Comey.
