Trey Gowdy: Andrew McCabe Is NOT Out Of The Woods Yet

The Justice Department may have chosen to not criminally charge disgraced former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe but that doesn't mean that the scheming operative is off the hook.
According to former Republican congressman Trey Gowdy, McCabe may have beaten the rap for lying and leaking but he has yet to answer for his role in the Russia hoax and the defrauding of the FISA court to obtain surveillance warrants on President Trump and his associates.
On Friday, the DOJ confirmed that there are indeed two separate legal systems in America, one for politically connected figures like McCabe and another for everyone else when it announced that he wouldn't be charged.
For McCabe who is now employed by CNN, the announcement was a chance to gloat and take shots at President Trump which he quickly used his forum at the self-proclaimed "most trusted name in news" to do.
But Gowdy is cautioning James Comey's loyal underling about not prematurely claiming victory which he did during an appearance on Fox's "Sunday Morning Futures" with Maria Bartiromo.
According to Gowdy:
He escapes indictment from that narrow fact pattern but that has nothing to do with FISA or the initiation of Russia and any other potential misconduct that Andrew McCabe may have engaged in… He certainly is someone John Durham would want to talk to.
So McCabe is NOT out of the woods yet for his criminal behavior.
The idea that it ain't over until it's over regarding McCabe was seemingly echoed by dirty prosecutor Andrew Weissmann aka Mueller's pit bull who now works for MSNBC and who predicted that the DOJ is only swapping a "loser case" for a new investigation into the coup plotters.
Via The Washington Examiner, "Top Mueller prosecutor: DOJ starting new investigation into James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Peter Strzok":
One of Robert Mueller's former top prosecutors said the outside prosecutor picked to review the case against retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is a ruse to investigate President Trump's perceived enemies.
Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department official who was known as Mueller's "pit bull" during the Russia investigation, said the Justice Department swapped out the "loser case" of Andrew McCabe, who escaped criminal charges on Friday for allegedly lying to investigators about authorizing media disclosures, for a fresh one targeting top former FBI officials, including McCabe, led by Jeffrey Jensen, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri.
"All they did was swapped out a loser case for starting an investigation that is going to be of Comey, McCabe, Pete Strzok," Weissmann told MSNBC host Chuck Todd.
Judging from the intensification in the attacks on AG William Barr and the news that he has assigned outside prosecutors to review politically sensitive cases U.S. attorney’s office in Washington including the framing of Gen. Michael Flynn, McCabe and his pals may end up doing perp walks anyway.
The timing of the ongoing investigations and case reviews could not come at a worse time for Democrats, many of whom are complicit in the foiled overthrow of President Trump and could see their dirty laundry aired in public right before the election.
