Justice Department Declines to Prosecute Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe

The Justice Department announced that it would not bring charges against former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who had been under investigation regarding an illegal leak to the media.

In a letter to McCabe’s lawyers on Friday, Justice Department officials said they would not bring charges against their client.

“We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe, arising form the referral by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to our Office of conduct,” the letter read.

“At long last, justice has been done in this matter. We said at the outset of the criminal investigation, almost two years ago, that if the facts and the law determined the result, no charges would be brought,” McCabe’s lawyers said praising the decision.

McCabe had been under investigation for allegedly lying to investigators about directing a subordinate to illegal leak information about to a reporter who was writing a story on the agency’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation.

News that the Justice Department would not prosecute McCabe quickly set social media ablaze with conservatives claiming it was evidence of a double standard.

The letter also comes less than 24 hours after Attorney General William Barr criticized President Donald Trump for his tweets about the Justice Department and ongoing cases.

  1. Contused Genital,
    “Another frivolous waste of our tax dollars pursuing ghosts.”

    So…tell us exactly how you feel about the fictitious motives for the Muelle campaign and the recent impeachment BS.

    Will YOU oppose future “frivolous” BS from the Dims? After all, these are OUR tax dollars being squandered for nothing.

    Think how those might have been spent, like more gimmes.

    1. “After all, these are OUR tax dollars being squandered for nothing.” I Ching

      You are confused, I Ching.

      “Nothing” depends on what is being investigated.

  2. ST, I know. I saw your comments. Well put. As I said, heads need to roll. I’m willing to hold out for maximum ROI but if nothing happens as has been the case so far, “let’s roll!”

  3. ST, while I admit that my BS flag is itching to be thrown, I’m reserving judgment until the Durham report is released. Call me an optimist (or even worse), but I think there’s more in store. If not, l’ll be right there with you demanding Barr’s head! I honestly think there WILL be violence if nobody involved with this cabal isn’t sentenced…and I mean, seriously sentenced!!

    James Comey was the head of the FBI snake, let’s cut it off. Clapper was Director of National Intelligence (oxymoron), and Brennan was CIA director. Cut THAT head off too! The Pied Piper in charge of these snakes was Obama. Let’s hope Barr can climb all the way to the top of that ladder!

  4. Speaking to those smarter than the Genital…doesn’t this blatant double-standard by the DOJ and courts bother you?

    A two-tiered system of justice is neither system nor justice.

  5. Hmm. McCabe. Comey. Clapper. Brennan. All swamp denizens and Dim sympathizers.

    Of course not one of them will see jail time. Look at the Stone prosecutors who just quit. A swamp denizen recognizes its own.

  6. Of course he got away with it. Despite a DoJ report that he lied under oath about his leaking to the WSJ about the Clinton investigation.

    1. So…you are completely okay with lying under oath.
      Obviously you won’t object when Trump pardons Flynn, Stone, etc.

      Too bad the f’d bureaucracies didn’t bother to find out that Carter Page was working for the CIA.

        1. WHC,
          I’m not demanding Barr’s head. He’s got a tough job and a tough position. BUT he’s a longtime swamp-dweller.

          The heads I want to see are Comey, McCabe (too bad), Brennan, Clapper, Ohr, Stzrok, Page, etc. THEY abused and degraded their positions AND our trust while sucking up benefits and monies we paid. Let’s also start re-examining Hillary, Obozo, Holder, and their mob.

          A signal to those who might contemplate similar corruption? Sure. But examples must be made.

        2. …and you’ve got nothing.

          No wonder you’re part of the Gimmes. Too stupid/lazy to make it on your own? Blame others and take their stuff.
