Report: U.S. DC Attorney Jessie Liu Will Indict Andrew McCabe…

Several news outlets are now reporting that U.S. Attorney for DC, Jessie Liu, will likely indict former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for lying to FBI investigators.

The reporting is based on leaked email communications from the lawyers representing Andrew McCabe, where McCabe’s legal appeals to Main Justice and current DOJ Deputy Attorney General James Rosen were rejected.

WASHINGTON DC – […] A source close to McCabe’s legal team said they received an email from the Department of Justice which said, “The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office.” (more)

While an indictment of McCabe is a positive step toward accountability for the corrupt ‘small group’ within the DOJ/FBI, the fact that McCabe is afforded a back-and-forth debate on the issues only highlights the ridiculous prism of tiered justice and politics.

The OIG investigation of McCabe, and the subsequent criminal referral, was finalized over 18 months ago. No ordinary citizen, other than well-connected ‘beach friends‘, would be granted such considerations.

If McCabe is indicted it will be interesting to read the Lawfare (Benjamin Wittes) perspective on having one of their team finally encountering legal accountability.

    Wonder who McCabe will take down with him? He is not going to be the scapegoat even if this “indictment” is only regarding his lying. He was covering for someone else.

        Well, you know what they do in that case right? They make a deal where there’s a guilty plea on these lesser charges in exchange for no charges on anything greater. It’s not the kind of deal we wanted to see.

        But the inch-by-inch exposure of what these people have been up to is having its effect.and it’s changing the political landscape in big ways.

        I think they must be coming to realize there is no covering this up, and the more they do, the worse it becomes for the future of leftist politics in this country. Over the past few decades, we were, as a country, a frog being boiled. But for some reason, with Obama and with the expectations of President Hillary, they accelerated things and with the cooperation of their own pravda media group, they thought they could pull it all off.

        They underestimated the power of forums like The Conservative Treehouse and others out there. The watchers have done their work to expose what they have seen and helped it to make sense to the common folk who are, in growing numbers, making louder and louder noises.

        Forget about what the media tries to create as a narrative. The size of Trump’s support is in sharp visible contrast when compared with anyone on the left. In fact, it’s in sharp visible contrast with ALL of the left COMBINED. COMBINED!

        They know what they have to do and they’d better do their jobs right or get fired.

        You can bet Liu will still do whatever she can to stop or slow it all down. I sincerely hope she gets kicked to the curb at the first demonstration of her efforts to meddle with justice. We’re tired of waiting and we’re just going to get more noisy about it.

      Oh, and aren’t we all confident that the prosecutors,will strenuously argue for the maximum penalty under the law?

      After all, this was a pderson in a high position within law enforcement, and as such had an obligatiin, to,…yeah I can’t even type this,with a straight face!

      Most likely, prosecutor will pointvhow McCabe has suffered enough already; lost his job and pension, has had to change careers, reputation ruined, reccomend probation and perhaps some community service.

      Max penalty on multiple counts, what is it 4 times? X 10 Years, he’d be singing like a canary.

      And, I never did agreecwith IG findings.
      IG said he could find no proof, that Comey or others on 7th floor KNEW McCabe leaked, and he had a personal motive.

      But, the leak was to counter story of his wife getting $ from Clinton (McCauliff, actually). That story would be percieved, on 7 th floor as being negative to image of FBI, hence Comey and others would be on board with his leak.

      And, he worked with Page to DO the leak, using her in her official capacity as council. What kind of idiot would do that, if it wasn’t sanctioned?

      McCabe insisted Comey knew and approved, SAID he had emails that could prove it, but was frozen out of his,account and couldn’t recover.

      Point is, if he got max sentence he could blow it all open. If he gets,wrist slap, the fix is in. And, thats all assuming he is found guilty.

            I have no experience or direct knowledge, but I believe there isn’t any “grand review” to determine the amount of the pension he lost. Rather, it most likely is he simply lost credit for some of his service time and this is how his pension was impacted. That time is easily determined by the date of his transgression.

        Don’t know that prosecutors will “go easy” on McCabe. I suspect the leaks about indicting him reflect the tremendously negative publicity Liu and DoJ have received lately re: lack of indictments. IOW Liu, et. al., are feeling the heat and prompted to take some action.

        What the outcome will be remains to be seen, assuming of course indictments will be handed down at all. But given the charges against Flynn and others were about “lying” to the FBI, McCabe could face significant time for his offense.

        As you say if a sufficiently harsh sentence is threatened, or the outcome of the case, McCabe might cave and implicate higher ranking members of the Obama administration. If that happens we’ll think it’s a great result for the American people.

The criticism from a lot of people about her lack of action has grown to quite a roar. I think that could have an impact. Of course her superiors in DoJ may have similar opinions which would have a more immediate influence.

          But he’s the AG of the Department of Justice; not some “independent” political. His JOB is to oversee and direct prosecutors. Sure as a matter of practice and feasibility, he wouldn’t or can’t involve himself in the minutiae of every case. But the idea that it would be unethical for him to do so — or somehow outside the scope of his job duties — seems to get it all wrong. That IS his job. He’s expected to do it fairly and impartially; but he’s not expected to abdicate entirely because anything he does is thought to be INHERENTLY tainted. That’s nonsense. The presumption is exactly the opposite.

          This whole media frenzy about how everyone legitimately in a position of power that the slimy Deep State doesn’t like must refrain from doing ANYTHING and especially consequential things within their job description is WRONG.

            I agree. The top of the DOJ under Obama did precisely what you’re saying Barr should do except doing in while wearing a white hat. And if he did, there’s more than a good chance these hypocrites will scream to high heaven and the US Supreme court or to whoever else will listen about excesses from AG Barr which are “unprecedented” despite such precedents having already been set by the previous administration’s DOJ and FBI.

            I need to see justice done. The nation needs it before the nation become forever untrusting of the government to a degree beyond the “tipping point” which will enable revolution in this country. We are absolutely not too far from a situation where revolution would be possible and supported by enough people.

            According to Robert Calhoon, between 40 and 45 percent of the white population in the Thirteen Colonies supported the Patriots’ cause, between 15 and 20 percent supported the Loyalists, and the remainder were neutral or kept a low profile.

            If the president’s approval rating is a comparative measure, then we’ve already reached a tipping point and a triggering moment is all we need to push things over the edge. That’s how close we are in my opinion.

            It’s wrong. It sucks. But it’s also reality.

            By letting the process play out, and standing up for ethics and Justice, Barr will shine a spotlight on the differences between the persecution of Donald Trump and associates, and the proper prosecution of the criminals that were responsible for it.

              Bill Barr’s whole stated point is to run things by the book. Good, right? I agree that doing it differently than the left means not running investigations as political operations. But it doesn’t mean abdicating supervisory authority –that’s not not by the book; that’s being bullied by politics and the fear of “giving the left ammo.” There’s nothing admirable or redeeming about running a tight ship when it comes to avoiding political shots that benefit your own side — but bowing to politics in ways the benefit the other side, for fear of appearance.

              If it’s by the book, it works both ways. The AG should do his job.

              And “shine the spotlight on differences” ….. how has that EVER actually worked out? The criminals in our government pocket their wins and spin it to their favor and those who see the injustice scream into the abyss. Winning is winning, and losing is losing.

      Important to remember, that Comey is still under scrutiny. The DOJ is not bound by an earlier decision not to prosecute, and that it appears the DOJ decision not to prosecute only applied as related to his memos and the actions related to them. There is much more coming.

        Lawyers have an interesting, if bizarre sensibility about these matters. You may have noticed this in the text conversations between Strzok and his lawyer girlfriend. When challenged that she may not have been acting properly as a lawyer, I suspect she is now more interested in not getting disbarred. A disbarred Federal Attorney can’t be a Federal Attorney any longer as far as I see. Getting challenged about her professional conduct would either result in a resignation or compliance. Clearly, she is choosing compliance but you can bet she’s going to “properly” do whatever she can to walk it slowly or to derail it.

      That is correct. This is a D.C. grand jury. I find it strange that DOJ has had such confidence in the indictment. The grand jury is at the end of its 18 month term. Does a recalcitrant jury want to go home and not face a six month extension? Has there already been a sealed indictment that Liu will simply unseal?

      Liu did get indictments in Wolfe and Craig. Craig’s I believe was sealed. Everything has to be strange about his case.

      Now, the FISA report please. Don’t leave this infant alone in the cold.

    Glorious news even if very late. They raised a half million dollar for legal fees for this Traitor (and pompous ass) well over a year ago…and even his co-conspirators have been wondering when our Justice Department would get around to making them spend it.

    May Justice come faster for the other authors of the most serious internal threat to this great country since the Civil War.

      That’s what I’m thinking. One move that doesn’t look like justice and she inciminates herself fully. But I still don’t like it. Allowing her to handle the indictment gives her an air of credi bility. And, from what I’ve seen, she deserves none.

      Or maybe she sang already, has put on a white hat, had her blackmail removed and now is a pissed prosecutor.

        I get what you are saying, but he was charged with 4 counts of lying and one count of leaking to the press. Lying the first time would be the “first offense” (and a felony). If the first charge was his only crime, I could see a possibility of a suspended sentence. But the indictment with 5 crimes? At least four of them felonious? I think he flips or does at least some time.

      That’s an interesting theory. Corrupt Jesse Liu indicts McCabe in DC. He is found not guilty by a loaded democrat DC jury. And Durham can’t go after him because of double jeopardy. Comey will probably be next in line for the get-out-of-jail-pass.

        No. It doesn’t work that way. Any indictments of McCabe coming from Durham will be for entirely different crimes.

Any indictments coming from Durham will be for entirely different crimes related to Spygate and the coup attempt.

    I am so sick of their mealy-mouthed language. My mother never once punished me for lacking candor. However, I was very clear on what would happen if I lied about anything, from the time I was about three years old. Therefore, I grew up with a habit of not lying. Funny how that works.

    Lacking candor, my foot. Deceived and deceiving. Liars and lying.

    Fouling their own national nest and feeding off the destruction of others.

    Hyenas.

    And probably still fairly certain of eluding serious consequences because they know for a fact (they’ve got all the contact lists) that their friends are still in places of authority, dug in for the long haul.

    Those whose hold on power depends on deception will always be able to find an audience willing to be deceived, and their particular audience is, today, in positions of authority. I think it is likely that, having waited so long for any evidence of intentional justice, the general public (including conservatives) will be delighted with any justice crumb thrown in their direction. It would be lovely to be wrong about that. Time will tell.

        At your service.
        These indictments will be based on the IG report and will be (based on that report) one count of 18USC§1001 (lacking candor not under oath, 1 year max) and three counts of 18USC§1621 (lacking candor under oath—perjury, 5 years max), all concerning leaks to NYT. Max penalty 16 years in prison. Don’t think there will be a jury trial under those circumstances, as he has no factual defence given the IG report’s underlying documentation. He will plead guilty in return for a light sentence and full cooperation on all future Spygate criminal prosecutions. He already said he isn’t going down alone..

        And I suspect Barr has put Jessie Liu on a very short leash. He took office 2/14/2019. It is now September 12, 2019. So of the ~18 months since this IG criminal referral, 12 months were her sole responsibility. And of the remaining 6 under Barr, at least 1 was McCabe ‘appealing’ to Rosen. (Similar to DoJ and Epstein in Florida in 2007).So it only took Barr 5 months to get this done.

        As to your concern, No nexus to the Flynn case and Ms. Powell’s 40 document requests. She is separately good to go with Judge Sullivan.
