Skip to comments.US closes case against ex-FBI boss McCabe with no charges

Federal prosecutors have declined to charge former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, closing an investigation into whether he lied to federal officials about his involvement in a news media disclosure, McCabes legal team said Friday.
The decision resolves a criminal investigation that spanned more than a year and began with a referral from the Justice Departments inspector general, which said McCabe repeatedly lied about having authorized a subordinate to share information with a newspaper reporter for a 2016 article about an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
McCabes lawyers said in a statement they were told in a phone call and letter that the case is closed and no charges will be brought against him based on the facts.
McCabe, a frequent target of attacks from President Donald Trump, has denied that he intentionally misled anyone. He has said his 2018 firing for what the Justice Department called lack of candor was politically motivated. He sued the Justice Department in August, saying officials had used the inspector generals conclusions as a pretext to rid the FBI of leaders Trump perceived as biased against him.
In a letter on Friday, prosecutors told McCabes lawyers that they decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client after careful consideration.
Based on the totality of the circumstances and all of the information known to the government at this time, we consider the matter closed, said the letter, signed by the chief of the U.S. attorneys offices public corruption unit.
The decision was revealed at the week of startling tensions between Trump and the Justice Department over the treatment of one of the Republican presidents longtime allies and confidants, Roger Stone.

Deep State wins again.
This is BullSchitt
GJ Barr... Let me guess did Trump’s tweets prevent you from doing the right thing on this case?
“Trust Wray”, or something.
Time for barr to go.
Tell me again that fairy tale about Barr draining the swamp.......
Just like always our side folds like a lawn chair, Bill Barr joins a long list of people who talk a good game but do nothing, allowing all types of criminal behavior along the way...
Get ready, Comey, Strozck, Page, Clapper, Brennan and all the rest will walk as well....
Meet the New Boss, same as the Old Boss.
Then Roger Stone better not see a single day in prison. The justice system is a joke.
This is exactly how these cards will fall. Get over one and we will drop another one. Our government is totally corrupt. So this means the special investigator Durham has no meaning whatsoever?
Traditionally, all of the prosecutors resign at the start of a new term. This time President Trump needs to accept all the resignations and start over.
Trust Sessions has been updated to Trust Barr ( to do what is best for the Deep State)
Who didn’t think that this was going to be the outcome?
The Department of Justice (sic)
Barr’s DoJ -
Stone to get 7-9 years for lying to Congress
McCabe - not charged for repeatedly lying to the FBI and leaking.
Is Durham going to be Bull Durham or just Durham full of bull. I’ve been assuming the later all along and there is no indications based on the DoJ activities to think otherwise.
So this means the special investigator Durham has no meaning whatsoever?
Another shiny object like Huber.
