The DOJ announced today they will no loner pursue criminal charges against former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
“We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe, arising from the referral by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to our Office of conduct,” wrote two officials from the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office. “Based on the totality of the circumstances and all of the information known to the Government at this time, we consider the matter closed.“
McCabe’s lawyers were extremely happy over the announcement, saying McCabe and his family “can go on with their lives without this cloud hanging over them.”
“We learned this morning through a phone call from the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office that was followed by a letter that the Justice Department’s criminal investigation of Andrew McCabe has been closed,” the lawyers said.
“This means that no charges will be brought against him based on the facts underlying the Office of the Inspector General’s April 2018 report. At long last, justice has been done in this matter. We said at the outset of the criminal investigation, almost two years ago, that if the facts and the law determined the result, no charges would be brought.“
