[Ed. – So for McCabe’s tally, it’s so far both the DOJ IG and the U.S. House of Representatives. He’s probably not the biggest fish that needs hauling in, however.]

The Justice Department’s inspector general referred its findings on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to the US attorney’s office in Washington for possible criminal charges associated with lying to internal investigators, according to a source familiar with the matter.

When exactly the referral was made to the US attorney’s office was not immediately clear, and prosecutors there may decline to prosecute.

Last week, the IG issued a report finding that McCabe “lacked candor” on four occasions with internal investigators when discussing a Wall Street Journal article about the FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation, according to a copy of the report obtained by CNN.
