One American News Network host Jack Posobiec has revealed that Attorney General William Barr will be the person deciding whether to indict fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz recommended McCabe for criminal referral because he lied under oath and to federal investigators last year at least four times about leaking information to the media.
A grand jury has been convened to hear the evidence against McCabe, and the decision to prosecute will be left to Barr and his deputy Jeffrey Rosen.
Below is a partial transcript of Posobiec’s comments, via Real Clear Politics:
Recently news broke that the Department of Justice is currently weighing an indictment of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
McCabe, of course, was instrumental in authorizing and running the political espionage campaign against President Trump. And he also helped to give Hillary Clinton a legal pass on her unlawful classified e-mail server.
McCabe was recommended for criminal referral by the inspector general of the DOJ Michael Horowitz. This we learned was for lying repeatedly to FBI investigators about the source of a leak inside his office to The Wall Street Journal, including lying under oath.
At one point, McCabe even attempted to hold a conference call to berate his underlings for the leak getting out. This, of course, was all a sham. He knew exactly where the source of the leak had been because he himself was the source of the leak and knowingly and deliberately misled investigators.
Now, McCabe’s lawyers are meeting with the DOJ to urge them to drop the indictment.
Federal prosecutors are not only looking into McCabe possibly illegally leaking sensitive information to the media, he is also reportedly being investigated for playing a role in the FBI’s handling of the Russia probe into Trump.
Investigators are still looking into whether he intentionally lied to investigators about improperly leaking sensitive information to the media a few weeks before the 2016 presidential election.
In October 2016, he allowed sensitive information downplaying the severity of the Clinton email scandal to be leaked to The Wall Street Journal.
McCabe was fired for his “lack of candor” and lying to investigators four times about leaking the information.
That’s not all.
McCabe also admitted earlier this year that he, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and other top FBI officials met in mid-2017 to discuss using the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office.
McCabe wrote in his new book that the meeting and conversation took place after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey in May 2017.
The 25th Amendment of the Constitution details a procedure where the vice president and a majority of Cabinet members vote to remove a sitting president from office if they deem them unfit to serve.
In Sept. 2018, it was reported that Rosenstein implied to McCabe and other senior officials that he wanted to secretly record conversations he was having with Trump.
And now Barr could be on the verge on indicting McCabe for his crimes.
