The president must be pleased that there finally may be some justice coming for some of those responsible for the anti-Trump dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC.
As reported by The Blaze:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) predicted Sunday that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will (sic) hit with an indictment and criminal charges — and that former FBI Director James Comey could face a similar fate.
McCarthy’s prediction comes just days after Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz delivered to Attorney General William Barr the highly anticipated report detailing his investigation into Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses that took place during the Obama administration.
McCarthy told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” that there will be accountability for what happened.
So what kind of investigating did Horowitz and his team do?
From the Washington Examiner:
Horowitz’s team examined the FISA application and three renewals beginning in October 2016 to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
The applications relied on the unverified dossier compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele, who was hired by opposition research firm Fusion GPS and funded by Democrats.
Republicans have alleged the FBI and the Justice Department misled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court about the dossier’s Democratic benefactors, which included Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee, and its author’s anti-Trump bias were left out of the FISA applications, and they have demanded accountability.
So now McCabe may have to face up to what he did, although his efforts to avoid indictment have been extensive thus far.
Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe has failed in his efforts to convince the Justice Department not to file potential criminal charges against him for allegedly lying to federal agents, NBC News reported Thursday.
Lawyers for McCabe, who has not yet been charged in the case, reportedly met last month with a top Justice official and the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia in what were believed to be talks seeking to dissuade them from filing criminal charges.
But apparently all the “dissuading” was meaningless as an indictment looks imminent.
And while McCabe scrambles to get witnesses to help him avoid jail time, it looks as though James Comey will not be one of them.
In fact, Comey may be turning on McCabe in an effort to, perhaps save himself?
McCabe’s ex-boss, however — former FBI Director James Comey — has said he could be a witness against him, based on testimony Comey gave to an internal watchdog that appeared to contradict McCabe’s version of events.
Meanwhile, McCabe’s lawyers are working furiously to blame all of McCabe’s mishandling on…(you guessed it)… Trump.
From the Washington Post:
McCabe’s team asserted that charging him would be a “grievous mistake,” essentially criminalizing his “innocent failure to recall.” They noted in particular Trump’s frequent attacks on McCabe — a person close to McCabe’s legal team said the president had criticized McCabe more than 50 times publicly — and said they intended to ask a federal judge in Washington to throw out the case based in part on those attacks.
Good luck with that one.
Do you think McCabe will be able to escape jail time for what he’s done? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!
