DOJ Opens Inquiry Into Flynn's FBI Interview

DOJ Opens Inquiry Into Flynn's FBI Interview”

"We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe", the brief letter said.

In response to the news, McCabe's lawyers, Michael Bromwich and David Schertler, said that justice had finally been served.

The decision resolves a criminal investigation that spanned more than a year. McCabe said Barr's recent interventions into Justice Department cases related to Trump were a continuation of the politicization of the department that began with the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

The referral claimed that McCabe "lacked candor" in four separate instances "when discussing the disclosure of information for a Wall Street Journal article about the FBI's Clinton Foundation investigation", reported CNN, which had obtained a copy of the report.

Speaking Friday on CNN, where he works as a contributor, McCabe said it was an "absolute disgrace" that the investigation had taken so long and that he was relieved to be done with a process that he described as "so unbelievably tense". "Director Comey's memory of these interactions was equivocal and speculative, while Mr. McCabe's recollection is clear, unequivocal and supported by documentary evidence", the counsel said at the time.

"The man who was in charge of the investigation of Hillary Clinton accepted essentially from Hillary Clinton $675,000 that went to his wife", Trump said during his campaign, reiterating a lie rated by Politifact as false.

Comey had told DOJ inspectors that he had never been informed about the leak McCabe authorized, which put him at direct odds with his deputy director.

The decision was revealed at the week of startling tensions between Trump and the Justice Department over the treatment of one of the Republican president's longtime allies and confidants, Roger Stone.

Flynn, embroiled in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's iuvestigation of Russian m meddling in the 2016 election, pleaded guilty to making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with the Russian ambassador during the presidential transition in which Donald Trump took office, but asked to withdraw the plea in January after the government reversed its position and made it clear that it did not intend to pursue a lenient sentence and recommended a six-month jail sentence.

Facing the prospect of potential further resignations, Barr spoke out Thursday in an interview with ABC News in which he admonished President Donald Trump for tweets attacking a district judge and congratulating Barr for "taking control" of the Stone case.
