Everyday Americans can expect the fake news media to spin the imminent Andrew McCabe indictment as a vendetta brought by President Donald Trump. The facts in what may be the first of many prosecutions of Deep State operatives within the government have nothing to do with the president or his administration.
Facts have emerged from Inspector General Andrew Horowitz’ internal Department of Justice investigations into the Clinton Foundation and handling of the Russia hoax that paint the former FBI deputy director as a self-serving, lying, and backstabbing fraud. Although he will not be prosecuted for low moral character, the disgraced former G-man is unlikely to get a lifeline thrown his way, even from the Clintons.
According to the IG’s report and subsequent recommendation from Washington, D.C., U.S. Attorney Jesse Liu, McCabe lied under oath to officials about leaking sensitive materials about the then-ongoing Clinton Foundation investigation. The IG’s report plainly states that McCabe “knowingly and willfully” leaked information to the media in an effort to buoy his reputation within the FBI. McCabe has already exhausted an appeal within the DOJ to avoid being indicted.
“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,” a DOJ email reportedly stated on the matter.
McCabe and his legal team may appeal to U.S. Attorney General William Barr. However, Barr is a Trump appointee and known hardliner on crimes such as perjury. The A.G. has earned a long-standing reputation for following through on prosecution and rejecting politically-motivated interference. That being said, the chances of influential people intervening on McCabe’s behalf appear unlikely.
“I don’t know how you can’t indict him when he is engaged in the same conduct that other people have recently been charged for at the Department of Justice, particularly when your own watchdog says that those lies were done intentionally and knowingly and done repeatedly,” House Judiciary Committee member and Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe said. “I think the Department of Justice is going to have to indict Andy McCabe simply because to do otherwise would be to admit that there are separate standards for people doing the same thing for the same conduct.”
Despite the fact that McCabe’s wife took cash from Hillary Clinton for a political campaign, his covert leaks threw the Democrat nominee for president under the bus. Feeling pressure from media outlets and colleagues within the DOJ to look impartial, McCabe reportedly leaked information about the ongoing Clinton investigation that may have damaged her presidential bid. His high-ranking Democrat allies are expected to turn their back on the party’s traitor.
During that period and afterward, Congress sought an investigation into the ongoing leaks about both the Clinton investigation and Russia hoax aimed at injuring the Trump Campaign. McCabe, working from a position of power within the FBI, ran a clever disinformation campaign that blocked lawmakers from uncovering the source of the leaks.
“The House Intelligence Committee tried to get the McCabe texts in the last Congress, but we were stonewalled,” Congressman Devin Nunes reportedly said. “This is the kind of issue that really needs more transparency. There’s been too much unnecessary secrecy surrounding the entire Russia investigation. The American people deserve to know exactly what happened.”
Reports coming out of the nation’s capital indicate that McCabe used the tactics of a double-agent to throw suspicion upon others within the FBI. As Congressional oversight committees began to bring pressure to bear on FBI brass, McCabe reportedly took his attempt to shield himself from being caught to the next level.
As deputy director and acting director of the FBI after the James Comey firing, McCabe reportedly leveled accusations at honest, rank-and-file agents that a leaker was within their ranks. All the while, one was. It was their boss. There will be no lifelines coming from within the ranks of the FBI or law enforcement after his disgraceful treatment of the field officers.
A prosecution appears imminent for McCabe. His anticipated defense that a forthcoming indictment would be politically-motivated by the White House falls short of logical. McCabe’s reported lies under oath were aimed at concealing his leaks against the president’s opponent. Fortunately for McCabe, he has a job and platform to push disinformation on the issue. He now works for CNN — the leader in fake news — go figure.
