Corrupt former deputy FBI director Andrew “Andy” McCabe is trying to generate sympathy days before the long-overdue Justice Department Inspector General’s report is released.
According to advance buzz, Michael Horowitz’s investigation into the FBI’s conduct during the probe of the Hillary Clinton email matter is said to be particularly damning to McCabe and his former boss, the suddenly quiet as a churchmouse James Comey.
The IG report is all but certain to ignite a political firestorm, especially if it shows a high degree of the politicization of the FBI which would be par for the course under Barack Obama who weaponized federal agencies against his political opposition like a corrupt Chicago city boss.
On Tuesday, McCabe’s attorney announced that a lawsuit has been filed against the DOJ claiming that documents relating to his firing were deliberately withheld from him. He was fired hours short of being able to retire with his full pension and a subsequent report from Horowitz roasted the conspirator for leaking and lying.
It doesn’t look like he got it.

Via The Associated Press “Lawsuit: Justice Dept. Failed to Give McCabe Info on Firing”:
The Justice Department has repeatedly refused to provide former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe with documents related to his firing, according to a lawsuit filed on his behalf Tuesday.
The complaint says the Justice Department has publicly defended the firing yet failed to identify for McCabe the policies and procedures it followed before dismissing him. The department has withheld the information, McCabe’s lawyers allege, for fear that the materials could be used against them in any additional lawsuits.
“We don’t create or adjudicate under secret law or procedure,” David Snyder, one of McCabe’s lawyers, said in an email to The Associated Press.
The case pits the career law enforcement official against a Justice Department that employed him for more than two decades.
The lawsuit is a desperation move by McCabe who according to accounts is one of the dirtiest rat bastards to have ever prowled the halls of FBI headquarters. While the Horowitz report will draw attention to his role in the Clinton email coverup, the real bunker buster of his involvement in the ongoing coup against President Trump is coming as a part of another IG investigation that is ongoing.
It’s a good thing that all of those supporters were laundering money through an array of GoFundMe accounts for his legal defense because he’s going to need it.
