[Ed. – This will make a lot of people happy. We’ll see. The scramble to hang stuff on McCabe so that it doesn’t blow back on others will be intense. Remember: this is ONLY about the IG report we already have on the Hillary probe; it’s not about the one on FISA abuses. That’s the one bad Spygate actors really need to be exposed over. There are a lot of games to be played by McCabe’s lawyers, and the first one of these prosecutions can start getting evidence needed for other cases tied up in less significant proceedings. Good luck to us all. Fat lady ain’t sung yet.]
U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against CNN contributor Andrew McCabe, Fox News has learned, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official.
McCabe — the former deputy and acting director of the FBI — appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, but he rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.
