Michael Horowitz, the inspector general of the Department of Justice, reported that McCabe lied to investigators at least four times to cover up his leaks of information to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ). Three of the lies were under oath. The purpose of the lies was to make himself look good, as if he were unbiased.
McCabe claims that he received a phone call from a high-ranking official with Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ), who pressured him to shut down an expansive investigation into the Clinton Foundation for potential financial crimes and influence peddling, as the organization had amassed hundreds of millions of dollars from special interests.
Prior to the phone call, McCabe’s wife received a campaign donation of nearly a half million dollars from Clinton friend and political ally Terry McAuliffe.
In an alleged attempt to show that he was not biased in favor of the Clintons, he leaked information to the WSJ that claimed he personally fought against the DOJ’s attempt to shut down the investigation.
Inspector General Horowitz’ full report will be published in May. Tucker Carlson pointed out that lying to the FBI is a very serious offense, and many people have gone to prison for this crime, yet the political class seems to be immune. When the full report is issued, the DOJ will be forced to prosecute McCabe, or it will have to explain to the public why there is a double standard and that political elites are above the law.
Members of the Trump campaign, including General Michael Flynn, are facing prison for the exact same crime. The FBI is full of zeal when going after a political enemy or an average American, but somehow its own agents escape with impunity.
