DOJ: Andy McCabe won’t be charged

My sentiments exactly:


The Justice Department said Friday it will not pursue criminal charges against former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, after a nearly two-year-long investigation into accusations brought by the agency’s independent watchdog who found that he lacked “candor” when questioned about leaking to the media.

In a letter to McCabe attorney Michael Bromwich obtained by Fox News, Justice Department attorney J.P. Cooney said the investigation is now “closed.”

“We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe,” Cooney wrote.

The DOJ added: “Based on the totality of the circumstances and all of the information known to the government at this time, we consider the matter closed.”

    McCabe and Papadopoulos: Two-Tiered Justice

    …I couldn’t help thinking about the hardball treatment of Papadopoulos when, yesterday, CNN announced the hiring of Andrew McCabe as a commentator. McCabe, of course, was the FBI’s deputy director before being fired after the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, concluded that he made multiple false statements to the FBI — including under oath. McCabe was questioned in connection with his leak of investigative information to the media. The leak may have damaged the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation (it certainly exposed information the Bureau was trying to keep under wraps).

    As I’ve previously recounted, McCabe is quite the operator: According to the IG report, to try to throw snoops off the scent, the then–deputy director indignantly reamed out subordinates in New York and Washington — as if these FBI field offices were guilty of the leak McCabe himself had orchestrated. His mendacity obviously obstructed the leak investigation, requiring additional interviews as agents ran down the misleading information…

    Yes it sounds like what nowadays passes for justice. Sit in our NOLA courts and see felons get out because their trials weren’t ‘speedy’ enough as the city won’t hire enough public defenders. See felons with rap sheets as long as your arm get slaps on the wrist for violent crimes because the judges think there are too many young black males in jail as it is. Sit in court…or not in this case…as a juvenile with a long record arrested and charged in over two dozen auto break-ins gets prosecution deferred as a bleeding-heart juvie court NGO lobbies for ‘more diversion’ and ‘less incarceration’. Sit in court when a parade of diverted juvies are marched in after failing in the diversion program and being caught in follow-on crimes. Sit in court with…you get the idea,

    Here we go again…

    “No reasonable prosecutor would bring this case”

    At this stage – what difference at this point does it make?
