Finally! U.S. attorney in D.C. district to recommend charges against fired FBI official Andrew McCabe for his role in ‘Spygate’ scandal
By JD Heyes // Sep 16, 2019

In what could be the opening salvo fired against the Deep State criminals responsible for “Spygate,” the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia is recommending that fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe be charged with lying to federal investigators about unauthorized releases of sensitive information to the media.


As reported by The National Sentinel, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie K. Liu made the recommendation after the Justice Department inspector general’s office found last year that McCabe had lied under oath a number of times.

DoJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz also made a criminal referral against McCabe last year when he filed a report documenting the number of times McCabe provided false information to federal investigators.

The IG report said: 

We found that, in a conversation with then-Director Comey shortly after the WSJ article was published, McCabe lacked candor when he told Comey, or made statements that led Comey to believe, that McCabe had not authorized the disclosure and did not know who did. This conduct violated FBI Offense Code 2.5 (Lack of Candor – No Oath).

In addition, the IG found that when McCabe was questioned under oath by FBI agents from INSD on May 9, 2017, he “lacked candor” when he said he “had not authorized the disclosure to the WSJ” and didn’t know who did authorize it. 

Then, on July 28, 2017, the DoJ IG said that when the office questioned McCabe under oath for a recorded interview, he wasn’t being truthful when he said “he was not aware of Special Counsel having been authorized to speak to reporters around October 30” and that since he was supposedly not in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 27 and 28, 2016, “he was unable to say where Special Counsel was or what she was doing at the time.”

In a November 29, 2017 interview with the DoJ IG’s office — again under oath — McCabe contradicted an earlier claim, stating that he did, in fact, authorize the disclosure of information to The Wall Street Journal. Also, he “lacked candor” by saying he told Comey in late October 2016 that he had authorized the disclosure.

McCabe and Comey were a criminal tag team in bid to oust Trump

Finally, the IG’s office determined that while McCabe, as deputy director, had authority to release information publicly if it fell within the “public interest,” his disclosure was done “to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership” and as such “was clearly not within the public interest exception.”

It’s likely that more than a few lawmakers on Capitol Hill were aware that the recommendation was coming.

During an interview on the Fox Business Network last week, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) said that the Justice Department “has” to indict McCabe if it wants to establish to the American people that there are not two systems of justice — one for the elite and one for the rest of us.

“Here, you have the inspector general stating that Andrew McCabe did that multiple times, and the magic words, did so intentionally and knowingly,” he told the “Sunday Morning Futures” program.

“I think the Department of Justice is going to have to indict Andy McCabe, simply because to do otherwise would be to admit that there are separate standards for people doing the same thing for the same conduct,” he added.

He remarked further that former special counsel Robert Mueller had created a “cottage industry of charging people like General [Michael] Flynn (Trump’s first national security adviser) and George Papadopoulos for lying to investigators.”

“You can’t really tell the public we’re going to treat people differently for the same conduct,” he added.

True story. But then, McCabe’s not actually been charged yet. And what about Comey’s role? Isn’t he just as liable as his former deputy?
