Update: Former Deputy Director McCabe responds to the DOJ ending the investigation into him, calling the length of the legal battle "a disgrace:"

Original Post: The Department of Justice announced Friday that it will drop the investigation into Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. 

McCabe’s probe was a 2-year-long legal standoff. This high-profile case received national attention, and McCabe became a President Trump nemesis. Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz made public a letter that suggested McCabe had lied under oath about leaking classified information to the media. 

This announcement comes after former Trump Advisor Roger Stone’s prosecutors recommended a lengthy, 7-to-9-year prison sentence for a similar crime.
