U.S. Attorney Recommends Bringing Charges against Andrew McCabe: Report

U.S. Attorney Recommends Bringing Charges against Andrew McCabe: ReportU.S. attorney Jessie Liu has recommended that the Department of Justice bring charges against former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe for lying to investigators, Fox News reported Thursday.McCabe appealed Liu's decision to deputy attorney general Jeffrey Rosen, who rejected his plea.“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,” reads an email sent to McCabe's legal team by the DOJ, which was obtained by Fox News.The potential charges relate to McCabe's allegedly misleading FBI investigators about his role in the leaking of classified information related to the Hillary Clinton email investigation.McCabe, who was recently hired by CNN as a national security analyst, became acting director of the FBI in April 2017 following the firing of James Comey.Attorney general Jeff Sessions then fired McCabe in March 2018 over the DOJ inspector general's finding that he “lacked candor” when asked by Comey, and later two investigators, whether he leaked information about the Clinton email probe to a Wall Street Journal reporter.While speaking with a reporter, McCabe allegedly confirmed the existence of the Clinton investigation, in violation FBI policy, by defending his agents' prerogative to look into the Clinton Foundation as part of the probe.McCabe maintains that he did not intentionally lie but was instead misunderstood by investigators. He filed suit against the Trump administration in U.S. District Court in Washington earlier this month, alleging that his dismissal was “politically motivated and retaliatory.”Trump has repeatedly attacked McCabe as a Democratic partisan, often invoking his wife's failed run for the Virginia state senate, which was partially financed by Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe's political action committee. McAuliffe is a close ally of Hillary Clinton, who was under investigation for her use of a private email server at the time.

Manafort Sentenced to Additional 43 Months, Bringing Total Prison Time to 7.5 Years

Manafort Sentenced to Additional 43 Months, Bringing Total Prison Time to 7.5 YearsPaul Manafort on Wednesday was sentenced to an additional 43 months in prison by a Washington, D.C. federal court in connection with the undisclosed lobbying work he did on behalf of a Ukrainian political party, just days after receiving a 47-month sentence in a separate case in Virginia.In delivering the sentence, Judge Amy Berman Jackson stipulated that, while the charges against Manafort did result from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of his work for a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine, his guilt does not constitute evidence of collusion between Russian officials and the Trump campaign.“The question of whether there was any collusion with Russia . . . was not presented in this case, period, therefore it was not resolved by this case,” said Jackson.Jackson went on to refute the claim that Manafort was a victim who was cynically taken advantage of by politically motivated prosecutors, as has been alleged by many Trump allies.“The defendant isn't Public Enemy No. 1. But he's not a victim either,” she said, adding that it is “hard to overstate the number of lies, the amount of fraud and the extraordinary amount of money involved.”Manafort, who was sentenced in Virginia last week on bank- and tax-fraud charges, apologized for his actions and asked Jackson for leniency so he could care for his wife in their old age.“I am sorry for what I have done and for all the activities that have gotten us here today,” he said. “I stand here today to assure the court that I am a different person [from the one] who stood before you in October of 2017.”“I know it was my conduct that brought me here today. For these mistakes, I am remorseful. I will be 70 years old in a few weeks,” he continued. “My wife is 66. She needs me. I need her. I ask you to think of this and our need for each other. Please do not take us away from each other. Please let me and my wife be together.”Immediately following his sentencing in federal court, the Manhattan district attorney's office announced state fraud charges against him.
