Remember when they couldn't even get an indictment on McCabe, despite trying so very hard, and despite the OG motto that "you can get an indictment on a ham sandwich"?
Lol, good times.
Oh you mean when AG Barr inexplicably said they wouldn't prosecute after a referral and it being proven that he illegally leaked information?
So Barr is a good guy now?
No, when Barr referred charges on McCabe to a grand jury and it was one of those cases where they did not issue an indictment, despite it being possible to get an indictment for a ham sandwich. Barr had no choice in not prosecuting because he could not get an indictment. Oops!
Also you are misinformed, McCabe had full authority to tell the press what he had an employee tell them. He did not and in fact could not have leaked it illegally, because he was an original authority. Oops again!
If I'm not mistake they kept asking the DOJ if they were going to prosecute.
Doj then refused
The Department of Justice said Friday that it has dropped its criminal investigation against former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and will not press charges against him.
"However, prosecutors opened a criminal investigation and called witnesses before a grand jury in Washington.
In mid-September, prosecutors indicated to McCabe’s attorneys that the government planned to seek an indictment against the former senior FBI official in connection with the findings by Justice Department and FBI watchdogs that he misled them.
Defense attorneys are typically told of an expected indictment a day or two ahead of time. However, in McCabe’s case, no indictment was announced.
Press reports said jurors who sit on the Washington-based grand jury who heard testimony were in the courthouse that week, but there was no indication any indictment was returned. The silence led to speculation that the grand jury might have produced a rare “no bill,” where jurors decline to vote an indictment recommended by prosecutors."
They tried to indict him and failed, meaning they were less able to convince a grand jury that McCabe was guilty of a crime than they would be of convincing them that a ham sandwich had.
