It seems a group of eleven Republican lawmakers led by Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-FL, aren’t the only people who think Andrew McCabe should be investigated. The Department of Justice’s own Inspector General announced this afternoon that the office has referred McCabe to the DOJ for criminal prosecution:
The move follows a recent DOJ inspector general report that found McCabe leaked a self-serving story to the press and later lied about it to then-Director James Comey and federal investigators, prompting Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire him on March 16.
A source confirmed to Fox News that the referral was sent.
The Washington Post reported earlier that the IG referred the finding that McCabe misled investigators “some time ago,” asking the top federal prosecutor for D.C. to examine whether he should be charged.
Representatives with the Justice Department, inspector general’s office and U.S. attorney’s office all declined to comment.
Will Attorney General Jeff “Stealth” Sessions step up to the plate and prosecute beloved FBI official Andy McCabe for his lies?
We’ll just have to see, now, won’t we?
