What Is Justice for McCabe?
National Review ^ | August 29, 2019 | ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

Posted on 08/30/2019 3:42:47 PM PDT by george76

The former deputy director’s FBI coddled Clinton and addled Trump. Now he seeks clemency . . . even as he sues the Justice Department.

Hillary Clinton checked every box for a violation of the Espionage Act. So much so that, in giving her a pass, the FBI figured it better couch her conduct as “extremely careless,” rather than “grossly negligent.” The latter description was stricken from an earlier draft of then-director James Comey’s remarks because it is, verbatim, the mental state the statute requires for a felony conviction. It wouldn’t do to have an “exoneration” statement read like a felony indictment.

...

the careless/negligent semantic game was a sideshow. Mrs. Clinton’s unlawful storage and transmission of classified information had been patently willful.

...

The crime was mishandling classified information, and she committed it. And even if motive had mattered (it didn’t), her purpose was to conceal the interplay between her State Department and the Clinton Foundation

...

While Clinton’s mishandling of classified information got all the attention, it was just the tip of the felony iceberg. Thousands of the 33,000 emails she withheld and undertook to “bleach bit” into oblivion related to State Department business. It is a felony to misappropriate even a single government record. The destruction of the emails, moreover, occurred after a House Committee investigating the Benghazi massacre issued subpoenas and preservation directives to Clinton’s State Department and Clinton herself.

...

McCabe is feeling the heat because the evidence that he made false statements is daunting. So daunting, in fact, that even he concedes he did not tell the truth to investigators.

...

if protocol had been followed, McCabe would not have been able to have Flynn grilled without preparation and without counsel. That put Flynn in a very different posture from Hillary Clinton.

If McCabe, Comey, Clapper, Brennan and Shrillary are not indicted, then we truly live in a banana republic.

Two standards of justice.
One for the Clintons and the Deep State.
Another for Trump supporters and associates.

I would probably get myself in hot water if I described what I consider actual due justice for McCabe.

we all well know by now that there are two tiers of Justice. One for politically favored class and one for conservatives. But this is what the republican party has done to us, not the liberals or law enforcement/intelligence agencies. If they did not allow it, it would be happening. But even with this unfair playing field, we and Trump have been making gains. It will take decades to undue the damage the republican party has done to us and our country.

Andy McCabe is married to a Democrat Virginia State Senate candidate, Jill McCabe, who received $700,000 from Hillary and her pals ...

during the fake investigation ( cover-up ) of Clinton’s classified information sent over her private, not secure, unauthorized email server.

"Two standards of justice.

The thing that pisses me off the most is, everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY, knows this - everybody on both sides of the issue, pundits and anaylists, reporters and editors of print and broadcast media.

But anyone left of center, and a portion of those on the right, won't admit it, and they will come up with all kinds of disingenuous stories, lies and alibis to cover it up and explain it away. But they know it, as anyone with an IQ of above 40 does.

The f***ing Dems on the House Judiciary committee know what happened in this sordid mess, and they are the worst of the worst. Consider what they would have done had Trump's camp been responsible for all the machinations that arose from what Hillary and the left did. They know it was horribly wrong, but they don't care. Protect their own all costs is what matters.

IF I answered in honesty and vivid detail, I’d be banned from FR.
However, let’s just say that at the end of the day, it probably follow along the lines of what happened to Mussolini.
