The Daily Mail is reporting that federal investigators are interviewing Comey, and are very close to charging Andrew McCabe for LYING to the feds!!
Prosecutors interviewed fired FBI director James Comey and are considering whether his deputy Andrew McCabe should be charged for lying to federal agents, a report suggests.
Investigators from the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office recently spoke to Comey as part of their probe into whether McCabe broke the law, The Washington Post reported.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz has accused McCabe of misleading investigators.
This is exactly what McCabe appeared to be afraid of when he retired from the FBI.
And as many suspected, the snare might have caught Comey in some lies too:
He has also accused Comey of lying four times — three of them under oath.
Lying to investigators carries a five-year prison sentence, but McCabe has denied any wrongdoing.
Michael R. Bromwich, McCabe’s lawyer, said in a statement to the Post: ‘A little more than a month ago, we confirmed that we had been advised that a criminal referral to the U.S. Attorney’s Office had been made regarding Mr. McCabe.
‘We said at that time that we were confident that, unless there is inappropriate pressure from high levels of the Administration, the U.S. Attorney’s Office would conclude that it should decline to prosecute. Our view has not changed.
Wow. If this is true we should know when McCabe is charged with lying to the feds. That would be seen as a win for Trump and his allies, but it follows the old criticism that the investigation is just a witch hunt since these are merely process crimes, and not actually evidence of the malfeasance that they’ve been accusing intelligence agencies of.
