News Analysis🔎by Jeff Carlson @TheMarketsWork

On Feb. 14, the #DOJ sent a letter saying they would not be pursuing criminal charges against former @FBI Deputy Director #McCabe for matters raised in a referral made by @JusticeOIG #Horowitz. (Thread👇)…
“We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe, arising from the referral by the Office of Inspector General,” the letter stated.…
#McCabe’s attorneys, Michael Bromwich and David Schertler, issued an initial statement:
Bromwich @MrBromwich issued a lengthier statement shortly thereafter, in which he noted, “We believe the OIG report utterly failed to support the decision to terminate Mr. McCabe.”…
#McCabe then made an appearance on @CNN—where he is a contributor—and stated that being “unfairly branded a liar, because that was the desired outcome by the president” had been “one of the most sickening and demeaning experiences” of his life.
@CNN But the #IGReport on #McCabe tells a very different story.…

#McCabe was fired after both the OIG and @FBI’s OPR concluded that he “made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor—including under oath—on multiple occasions.”
According to #IGHorowitz’s report on McCabe, released in February 2018, the former deputy @FBI director lied 3 times under oath—and also lied to then-FBI Director @Comey—regarding his authorization of leaks to @WSJ in late October 2016. (Read more:…)
The OPR recommended firing #McCabe, but internal @FBI docs suggest it was then-Deputy AG @RodRosenstein who fast-tracked the process.

According to OPR, the bureau would have been unable to reach a formal resolution before McCabe’s retirement without Rosenstein’s intervention.
@FBI @RodRosenstein On Oct. 31, 2016, @Comey had a conversation with #McCabe regarding the @WSJ article. The #IGReport notes that McCabe claims to have admitted to #Comey that he authorized the leak regarding the Aug. 12 conversation, and also admitted he hadn’t informed Comey prior to doing so.
#Comey had a differing recollection of the matter. According to the report, @Comey said that he had “discussed the issue with McCabe after the article was published, and at that time McCabe ‘definitely did not tell me that he authorized’ the disclosure of the PADAG call.”
On May 9, 2017, Deputy AG @RodRosenstein wrote a memo to then-AG @JeffSessions, recommending @Comey be fired.
That same day, #McCabe was being interviewed under oath by agents from @FBI’s Inspection Division (INSD) regarding the leaks disclosed in Barrett’s article.

According to the #IGReport, #McCabe lied to INSD agents regarding his participation in these leaks.
@FBI The @JusticeOIG found that “McCabe lacked candor on four separate occasions in connection with the disclosure to the WSJ” and that “three of those occasions involved his testimony under oath.”

The report provided the specific dates for each of these events:
1. With then-director @Comey on or around October 31, 2016

2. In Interview under Oath with INSD Agents on May 9, 2017

3. In Interview under Oath with @JusticeOIG Investigators on July 28, 2017

4. In Interview under Oath with @JusticeOIG Investigators on November 29, 2017
Under both offense codes, lack of candor is defined to include “false statements, misrepresentations, the failure to be fully forthright, or the concealment or omission of a material fact/information.”
