DOJ Rejects Andrew McCabe‘s Appeal to Avoid Federal Charges

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Fox News is reporting that U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu is recommending prosecutors move forward with charging Andrew McCabe. The potential charges relate to false statements he made to federal investigators in regards to the FBI’s investigation of Hilary Clinton.

True Pundit Reports:

“U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against Andrew McCabe, Fox News has learned, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official.

McCabe — the former deputy and acting director of the FBI — appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, but the department rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.” – True Pundit 

This comes after the Justice Department requested McCabe’s text messages.

To be clear, the charges are not related to Andrew McCabe’s role in the spygate scandal, but rather are related to his making false statements to federal authorities, the same charges they used on Papadopolous and Flynn.

According to an investigation by the Epoch Times, Andrew McCabe may soon face indictment:

“Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe could soon be facing an indictment after the Justice Department rejected his appeal to not pursue criminal charges for lying during an internal investigation.

An appeal from McCabe’s lawyers aimed at preventing a prosecution was rejected by Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, two unnamed sources familiar with the matter told The Associated Press. It’s still unclear when federal prosecutors might announce charges.

The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment by The Epoch Times.

U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has reportedly recommended moving forward with the charges against McCabe, according to Fox News. Liu, who was confirmed on Sept. 25, 2017, had an extensive background within the DOJ, having served as the deputy chief of staff for the National Security Division (NSD), as counsel to the deputy attorney general, and as deputy assistant attorney general in the Civil Rights Division.

The DOJ sent an email to McCabe, which said, “The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office” according to a source close to McCabe’s legal team.

McCabe played a key role in the counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign that started in late July 2016, in the midst of the presidential election season.” – The Epoch Times
