McCabe Criminal Indictment Appeal Rejected; DOJ Cleared To Prosecute

The Justice Department on Thursday notified attorneys for former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe that his appeal to avoid criminal prosecution has been rejected, according to Bloomberg, citing a source close to McCabe’s legal team. 

The decision comes roughly a month after McCabe filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the DOJ and Attorney General William Barr, after an internal investigation into media leaks resulted in his firing. 

The U.S. attorney’s office for the District of Columbia informed McCabe’s legal team last month that charges against McCabe were being recommended, according to a person familiar with the matter.

McCabe and his legal team met with Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and the U.S. attorney, Jessie Liu, on Aug. 21 to appeal the recommendation, according to the person.

The 51-year-old McCabe was fired DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz issued a criminal referral based on findings that he “made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor – including under oath – on multiple occasions.” 

As we noted last month when he filed the lawsuit, McCabe authorized an F.B.I. spokesman and attorney to tell Devlin Barrett of the Wall St. Journal, just days before the 2016 election, that the FBI had not put the brakes on a separate investigation into the Clinton Foundation – at a time in which McCabe was coming under fire for his wife taking a $467,500 campaign contribution from Clinton proxy pal, Terry McAuliffe.

Then he lied about it to the inspector general four times

In his defense, McCabe said said that his boss – former FBI Director James Comey, knew about and authorized the leak – a claim Comey denies. 

Looks like McCabe will need to dig a little deeper into his $540,000 legal defense GoFundMe launched in the wake of his firing – less than two days before he was set to retire and receive his full retirement package.

  1. It is more than past time for The Criminal’s involved in the Spying of Candidate Trump, to the Coup attempt on President Trump to finally face prosecution. Clinton was the mastermind and Financier for the Dirty Dossier, that Was UNVERIFIED by Comey, but he swore to the FISA COURT had been VERIFIED FOUR DIFFERENT TIMES UNDER OATH TO KEEP THE MUELLER REPORT going for 21/2 years to over 30 million taxpayers dollars, when it was known to be fake from the start. McCabe Was over Comey both in the WH and in the FBI. He was boasting that he Lied under oath about WHAT HE KNEW AND WHEN HE KNEW IT. It’s time he answers to grand jury for an indictment and then before a Tribunal Court for nothing less than Treason.

    1. I couldn’t agree with you more, Mary. These people are despicable creatures and we have waited long enough to see justice served. And when they are convicted they should lose ALL of their pensions and retirement and never be allowed to serve in ANY form of government positions or corporate management again. Strip them of all of their licenses.

  2. The DOJ had better complete their investigations and indictments prior to the next election. If not complete and demonRat’s get in office, this will be shelved in a heart beat.
    McCabe may go the way of Epsilon if he isn’t hidden away. But, Epstein was in a high security lock up. We’re also not talking about just fbi but, CIA, and the Clinton cabal.

    1. I’m surprised more of the people involved haven’t committed suicide. Usually it’s from a gunshot to the back of the head.
      Once one of them starts to sing, I think it’s going to sound like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
      All the rats are going to try and strike a deal. It’s usually the first ones who get the stay out of jail card .

  3. Well, don’t know about this for sure, we’ll have to wait and see, but I assure you if I were the prosecutor in charge of the McCabe case I would definitely hold his entire family hostage. I’d tell this little faggot-ass creep, “You either tell me the gawd damn truth or you’ll spend the rest of you life in a federal prison and I’m here to promise you I will make that stick for what you did to a duly elected sitting President of the United States of America. Not only that, but I will definitely toss your wife, your son and your daughter in Federal Prison as well, you have my word on it as a Federal Prosecutor in charge of your fate you little pipsqueak, I’m going to take you down numbnuts!” Next, I’m make him a deal, that I’d knock off 1 year of his sentence for every scrap of provable or actionable information he could give me about Jim Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan and last but not least, Ms. Hillary RODENT Clinton! I’d want it all, every single little scrap of anything I could charge any of them with, because I would be getting ready to take them down next! Comey, Clapper, Brennan and the RODENT Clinton, have all evaded prosecution for way to long, now it’s time they go to prison for life for Treason and I would use this worthless little stinky turd McCabe to take them all down. McCabe will squeal like a freshly cut Piglet, i.e., that is a de-balled Piglet or a baby Piggy that just had his little nuts cut off. You should hear them loudly squeal, its horrible they must be in a good deal of pain the little bastards, it goes on for about 15 minutes. You chop them then toss their nuts into a hot pan with boiling oil and cook them for a couple minutes then enjoy them for your nice hot lunch, yummy in the tummy. 🙂 Very good for you not so good for the piggy. Hahahaha That is ZACKLEY how Mr. McCabe is gonna feel, like a baby Piggy that just had his balls cut off, hahahahaha. I guarantee you McCabe will drop a dime on anyone and everyone he knows in DC to get his ass out of trouble, he has no credibility, absolutely no loyalty, and he’ll gladly turn on Comey first then Hillary RODENT Clinton, then Clapper and Brennan last. Mark my words, McCabe is a snitch, he will assist this new prosecutor with anything they want him to do. Otherwise, Trump should throw this nincompoop in federal prison and throw the Prison away. Hahahahahahahha We absolutely need to take this panty-waste down to the matt, de-nut him and water board him or do whatever else is required to force him to tell the truth so we can once and for all time lay to rest all this Russian Hoax Conspiracy started by the RODENT and perpetuated by Comey, Clapper and Brennan.

  4. Man – come on – it’s more lies to get elected like other years and when they get office —- all claims and promises go into limboland….
    The rich are prepared – They have purchased properties in other countries….They have moved money to other countries banks…They have prepared bunkers on their US properties to protect other assets when the y run and hide….they have prepared get-aways to thwart civil war fighters…..
    Why Not – but ya’ll morons forgot – Trump TURNED over his businesses to family when he became president……He still doesn’t take a salary – He’s rich….
    Hmmmm – Congress is supposed to represent their constituents aren’t they…..
    Well – The 2nd amendment is good to have and mostly goes UNUSED until some dumba** tries to take it away…..
    Can you say Judicial TYRANNY……

  5. I agree with you all, but Bush Boy Barr will not even mildly criticize any member of the Obama Clinton Cabal let alone prosecute them. McCabe will get the feather slap on the wrist, but much harder than the one Bush Boy Barr gave his pal Comey.
    Bush Boy Barr has no intention of harming the Obama Clinton Cabal. He’s protecting them, as he has done so far.
