Now indict McCabe

Making false statements to federal investigators is a crime. Ask Martha Stewart how that works.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe last night, in part because McCabe lied. To federal investigators.

This was discovered by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz as part of a year-long investigation of how the FBI handled Hillary's national security lapses.

Firing McCabe is a good start. Now prosecute.

I want indictments.

Including McCabe's.

I am not a vengeful man. Far from it. Oh, I engage in schadenfreude, the snickering over a mishap by someone I do not like.

But this is a very serious matter. We must prosecute to save the republic.

We gave the FBI way too much power, which resulted in J. Edgar Hoover. Rather than rein in that power, 46 years later we have an organization that tried to sabotage the Trump administration, and overturn the election.

We need to hold McCabe, Jim Comey, and others accountable for their lawlessness. Trying to nullify my vote (not to mention 62 million others) with a bogus Russian scandal is an outrage that deserves punishment.

By recommending the firing of McCabe, Horowitz did the right thing. The cover up is worse than the crime, and the crime may be pretty serious itself because it look like McCabe led to the destruction of incriminating evidence.

"In November, Horowitz said his team has interviewed dozens of people and had reviewed about 1.2 million records in the course of its investigation. But he acknowledged during a congressional hearing last year the classified information involved and necessary security clearances have slowed the process," Fox News reported.

"Horowitz said his team would look at whether 'certain underlying investigative decisions were based on improper considerations.'

"The review is also looking at whether the Justice Department’s assistant attorney general for legislative affairs 'improperly disclosed non-public information to the Clinton campaign' and should have been recused. That’s in reference to official Peter Kadzik, who had been an attorney in the past for Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

"Horowitz said the review is looking at whether any DOJ or FBI employees improperly disclosed non-public information."

Maybe I am hoping too much for justice. We should all pray for justice. But I want "you'd be in jail" to be more than a clever retort. I want it to be a reality. Maybe not for Hillary, but for McCabe and all those others who abused their power.

That would be a good thing.

  2. I think it has to be noted this was not orchestrated by Trump but is in fact a result of an internal IG investigation that was requested by the Democrats before Trump was elected.

  4. May justice be served swiftly and with maximum effect on these miscreants. This scandal should serve as a stern warning to anyone who would even consider such actions in the future. Pour encourager les autres. The schadenfreude is just the icing on the cake. - Elric

  7. Far be it from me to be subtle when it comes to the future of the Republic. Execute McCabe, Cankles, and Soetero. And Jarrett. And Comey. Just for starters. If these fuckers want a second Civil War, I'd be more than happy to oblige.

  9. This sounds about right. If the Mueller standard of convicting people for overdue library books and infractions from 12 years ago unrelated to any russian "collusion" then McCabe should be prosecuted under the same standard. One set of rules for everyone not one for democrats and one for republicans.

  12. IG has >1.2M pages.

    We've seen < 10K.

    That's not a ratio where deep state actors should be actin' big and talkin' tough. Especially now when they don't own the IC.

    I wonder if there are any TracFones in on the shelves in DC and VA?

  13. McCabe thought that a Hillary! victory would make him immune to penalty. He thought he'd be the next FBI director. He chose poorly, now it's time to pay.

  14. The "dossier" on its face was a piece of garbage, a fiction that could have been written in a drugged-up or drunken stupor in an afternoon. That the DNC paid more than $100,000 for it, and that the FBI spent taxpayer dollars on it is a disgrace. That FISA court judges gave it credability speaks to their incompetence.

    The Director and Deputy Director of the FBI both gave that pathetic document their support, and for that alone deserved to be be fired.

  15. If you’re going to fire someone, it stands to reason you use a Horowitzer.
