The Justice Department’s inspector general has sent a criminal referral regarding former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to the US attorney’s office in Washington, according to a source familiar with the matter.
A McCabe spokesperson, the Justice Department and US attorney’s office all declined to comment.
The IG had found that McCabe “lacked candor” on four occasions when discussing the disclosure of information for a Wall Street Journal article about the FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation, according to a copy of the report.
In addition, the inspector general determined that McCabe was not authorized to disclose the existence of the investigation because it was not within the department’s “public interest” exception for disclosing ongoing investigations. The disclosure to the Journal was made “in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of department leadership,” the report said.
The findings formed the basis of McCabe’s firing last month by Attorney General Jeff Sessions reports Fox6.
As we previously reported, eleven House Republicans sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and U.S. Attorney John Huber, formally asking them to investigate three members of the Obama administration — former FBI Director James Comey: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; former Attorney General Loretta Lynch; and FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, all for “potential violations of federal statutes.”
“We write to refer the following individuals for investigation of potential violation(s) of federal statutes,” the letter says. “In doing so, we are especially mindful of the dissimilar degrees of zealousness that has marked the investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, respectively.
“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately.”
The 11 Republicans say Comey’s decision not to seek charges against Clinton’s mishandling of classified emails suggests “improper investigative conduct, potentially motivated by a political agenda.” They also said Comey appears to have leaked classified information when he leaked memos detailing his conversations with President Trump.
Despite the non-stop whining by Democrats, the DOJ released documentation that proved President Trump was justified in ordering the firing of McCabe.
The report proves that McCabe authorized the leak and then misled investigators about it, leaking in a way that did not fall under a “public interest” exception.
Fasten your seat belts, America. We’re about to find out if justice is dead in this nation.
If convictions of Democrats and their conspirators don’t begin soon, it may be time to enact the 2nd Amendment and overthrow our tyrannical government.
