I'll bet you everything I have that Andrew McCabe will be indicted by..... oh wait..... nevermind.

News item

Andrew McCabe, favorite far right conspiracy and conservative media punching bag was informed by the Department of Justice that he will not be indicted for making false statements to internal investigators in relation to the Clinton e-mail probe. 

This concludes months and months of right wing guessing and predicting that McCabe was the tip of the iceberg of deep state criminality. 

Some have even bet everything they have that McCabe would be indicted by a date in the near future. 

Guess those guys don't have everything anymore.

The Justice Department has informed former FBI Deputy Director   Andrew McCabe   that it will not seek charges against him for allegedly lying to internal investigators several years ago.
McCabe was fired from the FBI on March 16, 2018, after the Justice Department’s inspector general concluded that McCabe misled investigators looking into how Justice Department and FBI officials handled matters associated with the 2016 presidential election .

Reacting on CNN, where he is now a contributor, McCabe said that it was an "absolute disgrace" that it took two years for the Justice Department to reach what he called the "obvious conclusion" -- that he said could have been drawn "a long, long time ago."

"Just so glad that my kids don't have to live with this anymore," McCabe, a frequent target of President Donald Trump's wrath, said.

"To have this horrific black cloud that's been hanging over me and my family for almost the last two years, to have that finally lifted is just an unbelievable -- it's a relief I'm not sure I can really explain to you adequately," McCabe said.

He also said he had been concerned that Trump's "revenge" following his acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial had "amplified my concerns about what would happen in my own case."

This shows the difference between Trump cultists and everyone else.  Everyone they want in jail don't have any charges against them and have not committed any crimes to warrant going to jail.  Everyone they DON'T want in jail are being kept out only by the actions of Trump cronies. 

Just waiting for Trump to start issuing pardons to all his accomplices.

It shows us the difference between who is above the law and who is not. Stone had the book thrown at him for the same lying that McCabe, Brennan, Clapper and Comey walk free for.

The GOP just gave trump the greenlight to do whatever he wants, illegal or not. So you really have no room to talk.

Gallagher, the Navy Seal that stabbed to death a child, in front of his entire team, was pardoned by trump despite him committing murder, (refer to the Geneva Convention and our 8th amendment). That same trump demands disciplinary action against Vindman, who complied with a legal congressional subpoena and told the truth, under oath. The trump admin rewards lawless behavior. Stone, Flynn, Papadopoulos, etc... will all likely get pardons even though they all broke the law. Trump has zero respect for the rule of law, he has been that way for decades. Central Park Five....ring a bell? 

If you want to talk about who is above the law and who isn't start with that.

Which is in litigation and since they've thrown everything but the kitchen sink at him, it's really questionable whether they have any evidence to prosecute him for anything.  After all, they say that the prosecution can indict a ham sandwich but they still couldn't indict McCabe.

When, in the whole history of the FBI, have they waited until the day before someone's retirement date, when he has already been on terminal leave for months, to fire him?

That is retaliation, not justice.

Justice could not mount a case to placate the POTUS.

Best of luck to McCabe in getting the benefits he earned.

No one acquitted Trump. Trump was never charge with anything. The f'ing Mueller report was a Democratic joke.

Which one lowered the sentencing guidelines for Stone?

After the assigned DOJ attorneys lied about the sentencing they requested- and went for the super max? Fuck them. Don't let the door hit their asses on the way out. Take can take whatever they put towards their retirement funds and get out. No pensions for subversive assholes. As for Stone, it is now in the Obama appointed judge's hands. Nothing Barr can do about it.  Care to comment on the obvious Democratic plant on the jury; who has proven by her statements before and after the trial she was never impartial?

Which one threw out the case for Trump taking Billions of $$ Congress appropriated for the military?

Really? So the Supreme Court didn't already rule on this? Do some damn research.

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/7/27/8932874/border-wall-donald-trump-supreme-court-2-5-billion-us-mexico

Donald Trump was handed a major victory on his signature issue — building a wall on the US-Mexico border — on Friday, as the US Supreme Court approved the use of $2.5 billion in military funding for the purposes of wall construction.

In a 5-4 decision on Friday , the Supreme Court overturned two decisions by a federal judge that had barred the Trump administration from using military money for the wall. The federal judge had ruled the executive branch could not appropriate money for a purpose not specifically authorized by Congress.

The money in question comes from the Pentagon’s budget; it had been initially approved for military personnel and training purposes. In two separate cases earlier this year, US District Court Judge Haywood S. Gilliam Jr. of Oakland blocked these funds from being reappropriated and put toward building a border wall. The administration argued that such redistribution of government funds was allowable given the president had declared a national emergency at the border in February.

The cases heard by Gilliam were lawsuits brought by the ACLU on behalf of the Sierra Club and Southern Border Communities Coalition, something that became key to the Supreme Court’s decision. In its ruling, the Supreme Court found that private groups are not appropriate parties to challenge the allocation of federal dollars.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Clarence Thomas ruled in favor of lifting Gilliam’s injunction. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor supported the lower court’s decision.

Justice Stephen Breyer supported neither side and proposed a compromise instead, suggesting the court clear the administration’s path in setting up contracts for construction without allowing it to start building anything.

Litigation over the funding will continue; the case will return to an appeals court. In the meantime, the Trump administration will be able to tap into these funds and begin construction on the wall, reports the New York Times .

The ruling followed an emergency filing from the administration at a time when the Supreme Court is typically on summer recess. The filing stated that a decision needed to be reached so that the Trump administration could spend the money it wanted to appropriate before the federal government’s fiscal year ends in September.

All told, the government plans to divert $6.7 billion from federal agencies, including the US Treasury and the Department of Defense, to construct the wall.

In a statement on Friday night, House speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized the decision.

“The Supreme Court’s decision tonight to allow President Trump to defy the bipartisan will of the Congress and proceed with contracts to spend billions of dollars on his wall undermines the Constitution and the law,” she said.

TDDDDS is the most debilitating disease on the planet.

I didn't vote for Trump or Hillary last time around; thanks to a few on this site- and the rampant Democratic morons in the House and Senate- I will vote a straight Republican ticket for the first time ever. Sedition is not to be rewarded.

No, we have one justice system that refuses to be used in partisan political battles to punish those who refuse to pledge loyalty to the GOP and this monumentally inept manbaby playing at being President. Even with Barr trying to force reprisal investigations on career employees who have done nothing other than investigate the numerous clouds of smoke coming from the dumpster fire that is the current Republican administration, they are unable to prove any wrongdoing by these patriotic Americans who stayed loyal to the constitution, not to some populist buffoon.

Exactly. The charges against Flynn should be dismissed. Same with the lying charges against Stone.

I believe Itisme is correct. This is only about lying. Small fish. I believe Durham will have a nice big surprise for McCabe in the spring....along with several others.

I believe it's called due process.

It went before a Grand Jury twice.  It has been said here and there,  that Grand Juries will indict a Ham Sandwich for a Federal Prosecutor. /s

Apparently not these last two Grand Juries.  A panel of McCabe's peers apparently refused to hand down an indictment.

The Judge(R) who I believe was appointed by George Bush (R), has been demanding a resolution for 18 months.

Case resolved.  DOJ closed it.

Unless Bull Durham(R) can magically produce more evidence after all of this time, it's a done deal.

McCabe is still, to my knowledge, suing for his full retirement pensions and benefits which were denied him for political reasons only.  No arrest or criminal charges? No indictment? No conviction? Just political retribution the day before his retirement?

Good luck to him.

Vic, it is all over for the Trump mob like DOJ (Barr). Trump thinks he is Michael Corleone and Barr is Tom Hagen, the mob lawyer. 

Their problem is neither of them have any credibility outside of the right wing media bubble. 

Even if they indict someone like McCabe or Brennan, there isnt a jury that would convict them or anyone else put up before a Trump led show trial. 

The mass delusion that inhabits right wing media today is truly amazing.
