The walls are closing in on former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe. Investigators are questioning James Comey in an effort to determine whether McCabe should be charged with a crime. All those conflicting reports are finally catching up to them.
The Washington Post reports:
Prosecutors interview Comey as they investigate whether McCabe should be charged
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.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz accused McCabe in April of misleading investigators and Comey four times — three of them under oath — about authorizing a disclosure to the media. Horowitz referred the findings to the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office to determine whether criminal charges are warranted.
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. A referral from the inspector general does not guarantee charges will be filed.
It’s all falling apart. The people the left thought would “get” Trump for them are now facing charges of their own.
