US Attorney Liu Greenlights McCabe Charges

Last month, U.S. Attorney for Washington, D.C. Jessie Liu advised the Justice Department to press charges against former FBI deputy and acting director Andrew McCabe for lying to federal investigators looking into the Hillary Clinton email server incident. McCabe currently works as a CNN as a national security analyst correspondent.

McCabe’s lawyers met personally with Liu to make an appeal not to move forward with any prosecution. Receiving a “no” answer, the attorneys then took their personal appeal of Washington Attorney’s indictment recommendation to the office of deputy attorney general Jeffrey Rosen.


McCabe’s team followed up the meetings by composing an “extensive” letter to Rosen that listed their reasons against moving forward with a prosecution against McCabe.

Rosen rejected the plea:

“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.”

Liu has been examining statements alleged as false that McCabe made to investigators “regarding his involvement in a newspaper report about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation published days before the 2016 presidential election.”

A 2018 Justice Department report criticized McCabe, who became acting director of the FBI on May 9, 2017, after President Trump fired James Comey, for being evasive and withholding information when talking about his directive to FBI operatives to leak information to the Wall Street Journal about the probe into the Clinton Foundation.

Comey, as you may recall, was the first FBI director who fumbled the Hillary email investigation, as I covered two years ago:

“Do you remember that little matter, just over a year ago, of FBI Director James Comey choosing not to investigate 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (D-NY) after compelling evidence surfaced that she had violated national security laws by using a federal email server off-site and for questionable purposes – resulting in a leak and subsequent investigation.”

In March 2018, two days before he was scheduled to retire and would have become eligible for early retirement benefits, attorney general Jeff Sessions fired McCabe. The inspector general had announced that McCabe had repeatedly misstated his involvement in the FBI probe into the Clinton Foundation’s alleged election tampering in 2016:

“Andrew McCabe, onetime acting FBI director, leaked a self-serving story to the press and later lied about it to his boss and federal investigators, prompting a stunning fall from grace that ended in his firing last month, says a bombshell report released Friday by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog.”

McCabe’s wife Jill is also linked with the Hillary email server and Democratic National Committee (DNC) scandals through Terry McAuliffe, governor of Virginia, a Hillary Clinton ally who supported Jill McCabe in her unsuccessful 2015 Democratic run for the Virginia State Senate:

“She accepted a campaign contribution from a political action committee (PAC) totaling nearly half a million dollars. The PAC was run by Virginia’s governor who happens to be a close friend of none other than Hillary Clinton”

On Valentine’s Day this year, Trump shared his opinion of Comey’s successor in a presidential tweet:

“Disgraced FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe pretends to be a ‘poor little Angel’ when in fact he was a big part of the Crooked Hillary Scandal & the Russia Hoax – a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey. I.G. report on McCabe was devastating. Part of ‘insurance policy’ in case I won…”

McCabe claimed he never meant to mislead anyone and was simply misunderstood by the federal investigators. In early October 2019, McCabe’s legal team filed suit against the Trump administration in U.S. District Court in Washington charging that McCabe’s termination was “politically motivated and retaliatory” action brought by the GOP Trump administration in the wake of the failed Meuller “No Russian Collusion Here” report.

    I’m praying President Trump for wisdom and courage. Be strong and of good courage Mr. President. Expose the Treasonous Traitors quickly and thoroughly. Execute capital punishment swiftly and vindicate the Americam Patriots from our enemies within. God bless you and keep you and your loved ones safe. The Almighty Creator and God of our founding fathers be with you in all you do. AMEN

    Good for US Attorney Jessie Liu and Deputy US Attorney Jeffrey Rosen as well. Former Acting FBI Director. Andrew McCabe was a part of an elaborate plot to bring down our duly elected president. His conduct was self-serving and deserves he face trial for sedition and perhaps treason. Our nation will not long survive with criminals like McCabe trying to destroy a president. There are MANY more who need to be held accountable – reaching all the way to the former president, Barack Obama, who was the mastermind of this plot along with Hillary Clinton.

    It’s time for the good men and women of the FBI, CIA and other federal agencies to step up and go on record as to the origins of these several plots and to see that just the individuals involved NEVER attempt to destroy our government again. Justice needs to be swift and unsparing.

    There is something very strange going on. The Democrats know they have no chance to beat Trump in 2020 with any of their potential candidates. Presumably, that is the reason behind their corrupt and clandestine impeachment probe. There has been talk of appointing Nancy Pelosi as president. As speaker of the house, she would be next in line, should the president be impeached and vice president Pence be somehow eliminated, according to the Presidential Succession Act of 1947, last revised in 2006. A long shot for certain, but the DNC has proven to be desperate and will stop at nothing to remove President Trump from office. The once fierce patriot J. Edgar Hoover, before being compromised by his personal vices, stated in 1956 regarding the conspiracy now threatening our nation, “We must now face the harsh truth that the objectives of communism are being steadily advanced because many of us do not readily recognize the means used to advance them….No one who truly understands what it really is can be taken in by it. Yet the individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst.” (J. Edgar Hoover, The Elks Magazine, August 1956;) I don’t know that their plan actually includes the appointment of Pelosi as president, but it is my belief that we are now confronted by that conspiracy as bizarre as it may seem. Considering the events of the 2016 election, the revelations of Pizza-Gate, the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein for his involvement in the sex trafficking ring and his subsequent execution in order to ensure his silence, there is very little that would surprise me to learn that this evil conspiracy would do. I do believe that we are indeed at war, not only with flesh and blood but “against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” I ask that you do not laugh this off due to my personal beliefs, but that you do the serious research necessary to reveal the real danger this great nation is facing today. I believe this is the real deal and due diligence is required from every patriotic American alive today. It would be better for you laugh at the rantings of a lunatic tomorrow than to shirk from your patriotic duty today.

President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place. CLAPPER’S OWN CONFESSION

      What we need to do is get Obama, you do know he’s still calling the shots right? That’s why he chose to stay in D.C., unlike ANY other ex President who wanted to get away from it all. HE is the problems that were created in America and HE and his minions Comey, McCabe, Hillary, Holder, the black lady AG who I can’t remember her name, and a host of others, high up in the food chain.

      I just wish the government would work faster. It seems like it takes forever to build their case, when the rest of America knows all this stuff from Judicial Watch’s FOIA requests etc. Why don’t they use JW’s information it has acquired? They found out about Her Highness’ emails before anyone else could get them from the State Dept etc.

      Sometimes I wish we were like a middle east country….get caught, get shot, simple and swift. Hillary would be gone. Instead she’s still around knocking off others….I fear for Trump and Pence because a good conspiracy theory would be for Pelosi to elevate herself to Presidency with the help of Clinton.
      I still wonder what happened to SCOTUS Scalia…a county MR does the autopsy and the body is burned the next day? A Justice of the SCOTUS? VERY fishy, and I have my idea of who took care of that because she was getting ready to be elected and would be able to appoint another lib on the SCOTUS…No one ever looked into that…

    Yeah, sure McCabe, you help railroad a decorated General, lie about it and participate in a coup against a duly elected President and he’s begging for charges being dropped. How funny is it that he helped ruin Gen Flynn for supposedly lying to the FBI. McCabe did exactly what he accused Flynn of doing but wants charges dropped. If that’s not a complete double standard and we haven’t even addressed his traitorous actions.
    i hope he is found guilty on all counts and receives the max sentence!

    If McCabe is not prosecuted? It will send a clear signal that the SWAMP BEHAVIOR may continue. IF McCabe is prosecuted if will signal to the SWAMP that LAW AND ORDER is upon them. EITHER RESIGN or CHANGE YOUR WICKED WAY. Cause HERE COMES THE JUDGE!!! (Not OBAMA appointed ones either!)

    How many citizens have been put in prison and ruined financially during politically driven investigation for “lying to the FBI”?? Even tho agents who interviewed Admiral Flynn said he did not lie, they somehow couldn’t keep Mueller’s group from charging and he isn’t home free yet. Comey admitted they basically ambushed Flynn not telling him they were investigating, he needed a lawyer, or anything! So why is it, Comey signed lying info for FISA warrants, McCabe lied to Congress – but somehow they think they are immune. With their enormous power they decided to step in and try to manipulate a US Presidential election and then arranged for continued harassment and continuing the financial ruin and threat of prison for Trump supporters if they did not tell Mueller’s gang what they wanted. It goes on and on. Again, why then should they think they should be immune? Surely, what they did was at the least, close to sedition!??

    It will not happen who do you think these scumbags were working for only Clinton? Lynch, Comey, Rosenstein, Rice, Strozk, Page, Uhr, Sessions in obstruction, Clapper, Brennan, and others can all point the finger at Jesus Christ himself communist muslin Obama. You have no idea how corrupt our federal government is the federal agencies are filled with a fifth column deep state loyal to their master Obama. Take that and the loads of human shit that control the House of Representatives led by four communist racist. Honestly, our Government is too corrupt to give equal justice before the law, they lie we must accept lies as truth. We all know what they did, not a single piece of shit democrat has been indicted, how come? You guess it, Obama is more important than us and this nation, he is God to left and our corrupt federal government, The most corrupt President in history is more important than the citizens, for he is God. We will rewrite history with a flavoring of pure bullshit to worship him.
