The Case to Charge Andrew McCabe

Federal investigators are considering whether to recommend charges against former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for lying to federal agents about a media leak. Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz made the charges in a comprehensive 35-page memo to the FBI.

He claims McCabe misled FBI agents and then-FBI Direct0r James Comey four times. Three times he was under oath. McCabe falsely told them he did not authorize disclosures to the media in October 2016. The Wall Street Journal published a story with the leaked information on October 30, 2016.

The report from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) asserts that at least one time McCabe lied “knowingly and intentionally.” The OIG is expected to release another report any day now on the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email scandal.

His legal exposure is so grave McCabe is now seeking immunity from prosecution in exchange for testifying at an upcoming Senate hearing on the FBI and DOJ’s Clinton investigation antics.
