Do you remember that guy that just got his pension plan reinstated?
Well, he may want to start to make some other financial plans for his family.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz dropped a bombshell during Senate hearings that should have McCabe right back in hot water again.
He Lied, Period
Lying under oath or to the FBI is a criminal offense.
That, according to Horowitz, is exactly what former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe did.
And he did it repeatedly.
Horowitz stated, “The report concerned an investigation that actually the FBI had initially undertaken involving alleged leaks about information that was potentially damaging to Secretary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“The FBI internal investigators developed information that they believed — led them to believe — that deputy director McCabe may have lied to them.
“They then referred the matter to us, given the position he held at the FBI.
“We assumed the investigation and concluded in a public report that remains on our website — and the public can see — that Mr. McCabe lied both under oath and not under oath on several occasions when he denied at various points certain key facts and information, including who was the source of the leak.”
That is a federal offense, which means McCabe should not be getting his pension back but instead indicted and tried for his crime.
He should be in an orange jumpsuit.
Will that happen? Not likely under this administration, but I hope this gets revisited when Republicans get back into office.
Here is the sick part of all this… while the DOJ takes care of its own, we have hundreds of thousands of military troops that stand to get dishonorably discharged for not taking a jab.
If that happens, they lose their benefits and many of their constitutional rights.
They are basically treated like a criminal that committed a felony… over a needle.
Yet McCabe walks out of office scot-free, pension in hand, after having actually committed a federal offense.
Tell me where the justice is in that.
