Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
“The wheels of justice turn slowly but they grind exceedingly fine.” – Sun Tzu
There goes Trump, attacking CNN again. – Fox News is reporting this afternoon that U.S. attorney Jessie Liu has recommended proceeding with charges against former Deputy FBI Director and current high-paid contributor at CNN and Democrat Party donor Andrew McCabe. Can’t wait to see that little bald fat guy, Brian Stelter, try to spin this one on behalf of the fakest news channel on television.
While the news that the Department of [No] Justice is finally apparently going to move to prosecute one of the major bad actors in the Obama-era effort to fix the 2016 election and then to take down a duly elected President of the United States is encouraging, the details of the Fox story are still troubling.
Take a gander at this passage, for example:
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 he rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.
The very fact that McCabe’s lawyers were allowed to appeal a decision by a U.S. attorney all the way up to the deputy attorney general’s office is an utter disgrace, yet another indication of the persistence of the two-tiered system of justice that continues to exist within the DOJ. What other American citizen would have been allowed to do such a thing? Such a request coming from you or me would have never even been considered.
Then there’s this from the Fox story:
Last month, a source close to the process told Fox News that McCabe had a “target on his back” because of the Justice Department inspector general findings.
That’s a reference to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report issued way back in March, 2018, which found that McCabe had repeatedly misled the IG’s investigators in their search for the truth about the Hillary Clinton email cover-up. That report contained multiple criminal referrals targeting McCabe, but all it got him was being fired by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Now, suddenly, we have a U.S. attorney who’s gotten around to figuring that hey, maybe we ought to actually pursue a little justice where McCabe’s concerned. Go figure.
Or maybe, just maybe, McCabe’s decision to sue the DOJ over that firing finally pissed off enough people within the Department – maybe AG William Barr himself – that they finally decided to pursue some real justice against a cabal member in good standing. Let’s remember that Ms. Liu is the same U.S. attorney who decided in August that she just could not decide whether or not to prosecute McCabe, and referred the decision back to main Justice. What changed between then and now?
Whatever the reason for today’s decision, it represents a true crossing of the rubicon, as it involves the first prosecution of any of the Obama-era bad actors. We can hope against hope that it’s just the first of many more similar prosecutorial actions to come related to the DOJ/FBI bad actors who attempted to execute a coup d’etat on American soil. Nobody has ever more richly deserved a good nationally-televised perp walk more than McCabe and his many compatriots.
That is all.
