President Donald Trump is still getting flak over his firing of former FBI Director James Comey. Many believe the move was nothing more an attempt to obstruct justice, but more information has revealed that Comey lied about several things and was part of the FBI plot to discredit candidate Trump and undermine the presidency of President Trump.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions got a lot of flak for his firing of former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe just days before his retirement.
Michael Horowitz, the DOJ Inspector General, released a report detailing accounts of McCabe lying to his boss and federal investigators and for circulating a fake story designed to boost himself.
(Fox News) – Andrew McCabe, the 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, according to a bombshell report released Friday by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz, appointed by President Obama, had been reviewing FBI and DOJ actions leading up to the 2016 election.
The report, handed over to Congress on Friday and obtained by Fox News, looked at a leak to The Wall Street Journal about the FBI’s probe into the Clinton Foundation. The report says McCabe misled investigators about leaks and did so in a way that did not fall under a “public interest” exemption…
Based on Horowitz’s report, McCabe’s firing was more than justified and shows why he should be facing a number of criminal charges, not only for lying but also for obstructing justice due his part in handling the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. There are enough matters on which McCabe should face charges that could keep him in prison for the remainder of his life.
