Andrew McCabe may have run out of time.
The former FBI deputy and acting director appealed to the Department of Justice and they told him to take a hike.
Now he may face charges.
FOX News reports:
US attorney recommends proceeding with charges against McCabe, as DOJ rejects last-ditch appeal
U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against CNN contributor Andrew McCabe, Fox News has learned, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official.
McCabe — the former deputy and acting director of the FBI — appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, but he rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.
The potential charges relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements concerning a Hillary Clinton-related investigation.
A source close to McCabe’s legal team said they received an email from the Department of Justice which said, “The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office.”
Here are some Twitter reactions:
Andrew McCabe was fired for good reason, violated his oath, weaponized his DOJ position & broke the law. McCabe should be indicted & tried. If convicted, he should be imprisoned. It’s time.

Wow. Reports that a U.S. Attorney has formally recommended pursuing CRIMINAL CHARGES against former Deputy FBI Director and CNN analyst Andrew McCabe for lying to investigators.
Hopefully this is merely the beginning of long overdue accountability. Justice will be done.
