McCabe faced possible criminal charge following an investigation into his conduct by the agency’s independent investigator
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.
