Andrew McCabe Lied to the FBI about Leaking Info on the Shut Down of the Clinton Investigation

Former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe lied to FBI agents about leaking information to the Wall Street Journal indicating that he fought against the DOJ’s pressure to close the investigation into the Clinton Foundation.  He leaked the story to save his reputation in the media.  Hillary Clinton was suspected of pay-for-play as her organization collected hundreds of millions of dollars from special interests.

Former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe was fired hours before he was to retire (with full benefits) for authorizing the FBI to talk to the media about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation, and then “lacked candor” or lied when internal investigators asked him about it, according to AG Jeff Sessions.

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.

McCabe set up a GoFundMe account that has collected more than $568,496 in pledges for his legal defense.
Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch suggests shutting down the FBI and replacing it with a new investigative branch of the federal US Marshal Service.

OK, so this guy lied under oath. What happens to you or me if we lie under oath? How in the world can anybody get anything done if they are operating on “evidence” that = LIES? GW has something to say about this (it has to do with MORALITY): “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician,… Read more »
