Wow: Justice Dep’t Drops Investigation Into FBI’s Andrew McCabe

( – On Friday, the Department of Justice made the controversial decision to drop an investigation into former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

The Department of Justice announced the decision in a letter directed to assistant U.S. Attorney Molly Gaston. Chief of the Department of Justice’s Fraud and Public Corruption Section, J.P. Cooney, explained the charges and the investigation were being dropped.

“We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe, arising from the referral by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to our Office of conduct described in OIG’s April 13, 2018, report entitled, “A Report of Investigation of Certain Allegations Relating to Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.”

The letter went on, “Based on the totality of the circumstances and all of the information known to the Government at this time, we consider the matter closed. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.”

McCabe’s actions during the investigation werea violation of the FBI’s own policy, as The Daily Wire expertly explained at the time.

In 2018, McCabe was fired by President Donald Trump from his role following a report released by the OIG that explained he had “lacked candor, including under oath, on multiple occasions in connection with describing his role in connection with a disclosure to the [Wall Street Journal].”

The decision will no doubt leave some wondering where Roger Stone comes into the equation, and whether similar leniency will be granted to him.

Speaking to CNN after the news was announced, McCabe explained how the experience had been “traumatic” for him and his family.

“As glad as I am that the DOJ and DC attorney’s office finally decided to do the right thing today, it’s an absolute disgrace that they took two years and put my family through this experience for two years before they finally drew the obvious conclusion,” he explained.

The move comes as Trump allies suggest the federal government is applying different standards to those who do not comply with their demands. U.S. Attorney General William Barr became the target of a media hate campaign this week, after he announced the DOJ would be reducing Roger Stone’s sentence.
