I didn’t think it was possible, but former GOP Congressman Trey Gowdy made his way back to Sean Hannity’s television show on Monday night to talk about the rising legal troubles for former FBI boss Andrew McCabe; saying it’s “harder to indict high-profile defendants.”
Hannity: “Why is this taking so long?”
Gowdy: “These are tough cases. It’s harder than it might appear to convince 12 people of anything. I used to do it for a living. Quite candidly, it’s more difficult if it’s a high-profile defendant. If they go forward with McCabe, rest assure that’s going to be a tough trial,”
“We don’t want the United States government going to trial and losing on a regular basis. If you’re going to go to trial, you need to win,” he added.
Jessie Liu, US Attorney, recommended proceeding with charges against McCabe last Thursday afternoon in regard to his handling of sensitive material during Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.
“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 the department rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.”
“The potential charges relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements concerning a Hillary Clinton-related investigation. A source close to McCabe’s legal team said they received an email from the Department of Justice which said, ‘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.’ [Fox News]
Let’s also remember that McCabe was hired as a commentator for CNN.
