Andy McCabe, who was recently hired as a paid CNN commentator, spent over 20 years with the FBI. He became the acting director in May 2017 after President Trump fired former director James Comey. Last month, an anonymous source told Fox News that McCabe had a “target on his back” because of the Justice Department inspector general findings.
US Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended charging former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. The potential charges against McCabe are related to his false statements to feds in the FBI’s investigation into Hilary Clinton.
From FOX NEWS – U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against 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.
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.
McCabe was criminally referred to the US Attorneys office for prosecution in the Spring of 2018 and they are finally getting around to (maybe) indicting him.
