Disgraced former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe may face criminal charges after the Inspector General referred his case to federal prosecutors.
McCabe repeatedly lied to investigators and leaked stories to the media.
According to the New York Post:
“The Justice Department’s inspector general referred its finding that ex-FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe repeatedly misled investigators who were scrutinizing leaks to the media to the US Attorney’s office in Washington, arguing that he should be prosecuted, multiple reports said Thursday.
The criminal referral was made after the inspector general determined that McCabe lied to investigators or then-FBI Director James Comey four times, three of them while under oath, The Washington Post reported.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether the federal prosecutors believe criminal charges are warranted, and a referral to the feds does not in and of itself mean McCabe will be charged with a crime, the paper reported.”
