U.S. Attorney Recommends Charging McCabe
 
The U.S. Attorney handling the Andrew McCabe investigation has recommended moving forward with charges against the former FBI agent.

The DOJ has also rejected an appeal from McCabe regarding his wrongdoing.

According to Fox News:

U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against 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 the department rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The potential charges relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements concerning a Hillary Clinton-related investigation.

A source close to McCabe’s legal team said they received an email from the Department of Justice which said, "The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office."

The inspector generals findings have shown an incredible amount of misconduct by McCabe and it looks like the government is moving to hold him accountable.
