Federal prosecutors recommend indicting Andrew McCabe, who added Trump to the Russia probe

Federal prosecutors have reportedly recommended criminally indicting former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for improperly authorizing a leak to the media in 2016 about an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation. The Justice Department’s inspector general concluded last year that McCabe had “lacked candor” during an internal investigation into the matter, which led to McCabe’s ouster in 2018 and loss of retirement benefits about 24 hours before he was set to leave the agency.

McCabe, who became acting FBI director in May 2017 after Donald Trump fired James Comey from the post, made the consequential decision to add Trump to the FBI’s existing counterintelligence probe into Russia’s attack on the 2016 elections. Trump has repeatedly taken aim at McCabe and his family, including cheering his dismissal in March 2018 as “a great day for democracy.” If Trump has an enemies list, McCabe surely tops it. And unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to trust anything even remotely associated with Attorney General William Barr, who has proven to be Trump’s No. 1 stooge.

McCabe filed a lawsuit last month alleging that he was the victim of Trump’s ire.

Smoke and mirrors to deflect on the real criminals. Moscow Mitch and the ever popular worst president Dotard Donald.

Trump and barr are making one of their biggest mistakes going after McCabe. He is highly respected, incredibly more intelligent than the two of them together, knows the law better than bothwhere the se rets are and will fight back. I believe the public is with McCabe especially after trump cut him off 24 hours before he was eligible for pension. How much more petty can one person be. If he is guilty for talking to the press, what is trump’s crime for talking in the oval office (which will never be sacred again)to the russians and giving them confidential… Read more »
