Multiple news outlets are reporting that Andrew McCabe’s appeal to prevent indictment has been rejected and charges are being brought against him.
According to SaraaCarter.com:
A source close to former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew 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.”
U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against Andrew McCabe, Fox News has learned, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official. Attorney General William Barr appointed Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the FBI’s role in the probe against President Donald Trump’s campaign.
DOJ officials could not be immediately reached for comment.Should the federal prosecutors indict McCabe, he would be the first senior law enforcement official involved in the origins of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
McCabe served as the acting FBI director immediately following the firing of James Comey, has said he personally authorized the counterintelligence and criminal investigation of President Trump in May 2017 over fears he would too be removed.
This week SaraACarter.com published a story revealing that the DOJ is also seeking former McCabe’s text messages. According to government sources the text messages will play a significant role in understanding the FBI’s probe into both President Donald Trump’s campaign and the bureaus’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to send government emails.
