Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is seeking legal immunity in exchange for his testimony on the agency’s handling of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
Now one can only hope he survives long enough to testify against Hillary Clinton, whose enemies magically turn up dead.
A lawyer for McCabe wrote to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on Tuesday seeking a guarantee of immunity for McCabe’s testimony before the panel, writing that the former FBI official would plead the Fifth if prompted to testify otherwise, CNN reported.
“Mr. McCabe is willing to testify, but because of the criminal referral, he must be afforded suitable legal protection,” McCabe attorney Michael Bromwich wrote to Grassley, according to CNN.
“This is a textbook case for granting use immunity … If this Committee is unwilling or unable to obtain such an order, then Mr. McCabe will have to no choice but to invoke his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination.”
McCabe is the subject of a criminal referral from the agency’s inspector general, which has reportedly found that McCabe acted inappropriately by leaking information to a reporter and then lying about it to then-FBI Director James Comey.
The president has called for an investigation into McCabe, whom he blames for bringing the investigation into Clinton to an end.
This could be the turning point where Hillary’s empire collapses, her house of cards comes crumbling down.
Or it could just be a ploy to evade the prison time McCabe has earned in spades.
One thing is for certain, Hillary Clinton is sweating right now, likely drunk, wandering through the woods, and scrolling through her long list of hit men she has on speed dial, pondering if she can manage such a high profile “suicide” and get away with it like she has so many others who ended up in the Clinton Dead Pool.
