Federal prosecutors recommend that Andrew McCabe, former FBI second-in-command, face criminal charge

E-mail Print PDF
Andrew McCabeFederal prosecutors recommended seeking criminal charges against Andrew McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI and a frequent target of criticism by President Donald Trump, according to people familiar with the decision Thursday.

McCabe was fired from the FBI just before his retirement in March 2018 after the Justice Department's internal watchdog concluded that he improperly authorized a leak about a federal investigation into the Clinton Foundation in the final weeks of the 2016 presidential campaign. Investigators concluded that he displayed a lack of candor when asked about the leak.

The U.S. attorney in Washington, Jessie Liu, recommended moving forward with unspecified charges against McCabe, according to people familiar with the situation who were not authorized to comment publicly. McCabe's lawyers appealed that decision to Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, who rejected their request, one of the people said. McCabe's lawyers were informed of that decision Thursday.

TVNL Comment: Isn't it enough that Trump fired McCabe the day before he was elligible for his pension after decades of public service? Now Trump wants to make sure the man in charge of his probe after Comey was fired would be charged with some innocuous crime.  Worse than Watergate.  Worse than anything we've seen yet.
