Indict McCabe

Jimmy the Weasel Comey's flunky deputy director Andrew the Leaker McCabe lied under oath to Congress, according to the Department of Justice inspector general.

Indict McCabe for perjury, lying to a federal official, and disclosing classified information.

Katie Pavlich of Townhall excerpted the report:
We found that, in a conversation with then-Director Comey shortly after the WSJ article was published, McCabe lacked candor when he told Comey, or made statements that led Comey to believe, that McCabe had not authorized the disclosure and did not know who did.  This conduct violated FBI Offense Code 2.5 (Lack of Candor – No Oath).
We also found that on May 9, 2017, when questioned under oath by FBI agents from INSD, McCabe lacked candor when he told the agents that he had not authorized the disclosure to the WSJ and did not know who did.  This conduct violated FBI Offense Code 2.6 (Lack of Candor –  Under Oath).
We further found that on July 28, 2017, when questioned under oath by the OIG in a recorded interview, McCabe lacked candor when he stated: (a) that he was not aware of Special Counsel having been authorized to speak to reporters around October 30 and (b) that,  because he was not in Washington, D.C., on October 27 and 28, 2016, he was unable to say where Special Counsel was or what she was doing at that time.  This conduct violated FBI Offense Code 2.6 (Lack of Candor – Under Oath).
We additionally found that on November 29, 2017, when questioned under oath by the OIG in a recorded interview during which he contradicted his prior statements by acknowledging that he had authorized the disclosure to the WSJ, McCabe lacked candor when he: (a) stated that he told Comey on October 31, 2016, that he had authorized the disclosure to the WSJ; (b) denied telling INSD agents on May 9 that he had not authorized the disclosure to the WSJ about the PADAG call; and (c) asserted that INSD’s questioning of him on May 9 about the October 30 WSJ article occurred at the end of an unrelated meeting when one of the INSD agents pulled him aside and asked him one or two questions about the article. This conduct violated FBI Offense Code 2.6 (Lack of Candor –   Under Oath).
Lastly, we determined that as Deputy Director, McCabe was authorized to disclose the existence of the CF Investigation publicly if such a disclosure fell within the “public interest” exception in applicable FBI and DOJ policies generally prohibiting such a disclosure of an ongoing investigation.  However, we concluded that McCabe’s decision to confirm the existence of the CF Investigation through an anonymously sourced quote, recounting the content of a phone call with a senior Department official in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership, was clearly not within the public interest exception.  We therefore concluded that McCabe’s disclosure of the existence of an ongoing investigation in this manner violated the FBI’s and the Department’s media policy and constituted misconduct.
This is go-to-jail stuff.

This is lose-your-pension stuff.

This is make-an-example-of-a-crooked-government-official stuff.

None of this surprises me. The end game should be the repeal and replacement of the FBI with an agency that helps local and state law enforcement officials.

The United States was never intended to have a national police force.

Yes, federal laws should be enforced.

But over the years, the FBI has tried to entrap politicians (Abscam) and otherwise abused its power. The refusal by FBI officials to honor a congressional subpoena shows a contempt not only for Congress, but for the Constitution and the American people.

FBI agents put their lives at risk every day to protect and serve America, but the fish rots from the head down, as the saying goes. Throw the fish heads in prison, and re-assign everyone else.

    1. Straw man - The purpose and the rights violated are a different issue, and your comment is meaningless. Are you sayinghe is not a lying weasel? Are you alsosaying he is not an anti-Trump hack? I wouldn't cherry pick details if I woere you. And oh by the way, HIllary is such a bag of unethical, classic old, corupt Democrat that even her party's hacks canhardly stomach her...

  2. Trump is a mob boss--but the only one who got a mob hit was Seth Rich.

    Funny how that works.

  3. Agree that the fish rots from the head.



    "His face appeared slightly orange with bright white half-moons under his eyes where I assumed he placed small tanning goggles, and impressively coifed, bright blond hair, which upon close inspection looked to be all his.....As he extended his hand, I made a mental note to check its size. It was smaller than mine, but did not seem unusually so."

    1. Something seriously wrong with a person fixated on hand size. My doctor has very small hands. Lean and nimble. Mine by contrast are some what large. A size 5 glove is too tight. What I do with my hands caused them to be larger, bonier, stronger. No one in their right mind would want hands like mine on a surgeon.
      Amazing how leftards get so fixated on things like that.

    2. Lefties have no principles. Just strategy and tactics. This is the "throw everything you have and see what sticks" strategy.

      Gotta hand it to them, they understand that ridicule is more convincing than careful thinking and logical presentation. They're not concerned about boring stuff like upholding truth or personal integrity.

    1. The "donations" were from his friends in the deep state and did not represent normal people who don't live in Washington D.C. If anything they will contribute more for one of their own.

  6. Mueller has evidence Cohen was in Prague in 2016....so if Cohen was in Prague, why is he lying about it? Before you know it we'll be hearing the pee pee tape is real. Keep smearing McCabe though.

  7. Seems right to me. Since the game seems to convict people for "lying" to the FBI we must also go after the proven liars in the FBI to make it fair, right Mr.Sessions? You awake over there? Hello....wakey wakey!

  8. I believe (hope) the IG report has already been referred for prosecution. The fact that he was fired indicates that he's a bad boy. And Comey basically did the same thing. Comey's indictment should be following soon. - Elric

  11. Trump should pardon McCabe....if McCabe reveals everything to Trump's legal team. That would be a negotiation.

  12. They said Scooter Libby lacked candor. His sentence was commuted but it took a real man to pardon that travesty of justice.
    I say prosecute McCabe and who knows, maybe Trump will commute or pardon him too. He should hold his breath while waiting

    1. Scooter wasn't an FBI agent. He was framed by Commie's hack Fitzgerald.

  13. What exactly was the story for which McCabe authorized the leak to the WSJ? I have read it was about certain confidential internal discussions within the FBI regarding its probe of the Clinton Foundation, with one version of the story claiming McCabe tried to end the FBI's investigation, but another contradictory version claiming McCabe defended the agency's authority to investigate the CF. Which is it? Anyone know?

  14. lacked candor

    When I grew up, that meant you lied.

    Comey, Rosenstein, Mueller, and McCabe all should hang.

  15. Indicting McCabe would be a good first start. He appears to have committed a crime if lying to the FBI is a criminal offense if you are an FBI official. We wonder why indictments are not being prepared. Is That what Sessions’ investigator is doing?

  16. The primary mission of my state’s investigative agency is to support the county sheriffs. I have never trusted the FBI. They are too political and like to take over investigations that others have done the real work on. Your suggestion to reform the FBI as a support agency for state LE agencies to spot on!

  17. McCabe lied and changed his story. He blamed everyone, but himself. Just like his boss, Comey.

    1. You should have stopped as soon as you got to "national.rev..." if not sooner.

      Anything there is just clickbait in support of the Swamp; anything actually worth reading will be found elsewhere.

  19. Indict immediately. And all others who have been lying and/ or leaking. Get them going to trial.
