It’s a good thing that liberals gave so much cash to Andrew McCabe’s legal defense fund a few weeks ago. He’s going to need it. New charges have been recommended for him and this may be just the beginning.
Criminal charges recommended for fired FBI official Andrew McCabe
The Department of Justice received a referral recommending criminal charges against former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a legal source familiar with the issue told NBC News Thursday.
The referral recommended charging McCabe with lying to federal investigators.
CNN, which first reported the referral, said it was sent by the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz. The DOJ will decide whether to charge McCabe with a crime.
The Justice Department declined to comment on this story.
McCabe was fired as the No. 2 official at the FBI in March, less than two days before he was eligible to retire with full pension benefits. His ouster was recommended by the Office of Professional Responsibility and was later carried out by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
In an initial statement after his firing, McCabe said the decision, which was allegedly the result of an accelerated review process, had been politicized.
So many of the people involved in this mess may ultimately go down. It will be a sight to behold.
