Looks like Andy McCabe is having a really bad day because the DOJ just denied his appeal to forgo prosecution for his lying past:
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.
The potential charges relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements concerning a Hillary Clinton-related investigation.
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.”
CNN must be hardest hit by the news.
McCabe has argued that he was really fired for not pledging allegiance to Trump, but that’s ridiculous considering it was the IG that found he had lied about leaking information to the WSJ.
But I would imagine that these charges might be the least of his worries when the next IG report comes out…
