Several of the Trump loyalists around here have been drooling with excitement over the prospect of seeing their chants of “Lock Them Up” fulfilled on the public servants trying to protect us from Russian “ratfucking.” After two years of dangling the Andrew McCabe case in front of them on Fox News, the DOJ is dropping it.
The behavior of the Trump DOJ is particularly egregious and political in this case because a Grand Jury – whose standard for indictment is only probable cause – rejected the DOJ “case” in September of 2019. It seems nobody had the guts to tell the President that his claims of criminal behavior by Andrew McCabe were bullshit. For more than a year.
Maybe Tabor will suggest the government should pay McCabe’s legal costs? I won’t hold my breath.
