Trump Supporters Fume On Social Media Over McCabe Being Off the Hook

Per ABC, the Justice Department has informed former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe that it will not seek charges against him for allegedly lying to internal investigators several years ago.

McCabe was fired from the FBI on March 16, 2018, after the Justice Department’s inspector general concluded that McCabe misled investigators looking into how Justice Department and FBI officials handled matters associated with the 2016 presidential election.

Reacting on CNN, where he is now a contributor, McCabe said that it was an “absolute disgrace” that it took two years for the Justice Department to reach what he called the “obvious conclusion” — that he said could have been drawn “a long, long time ago.”

“Just so glad that my kids don’t have to live with this anymore,” McCabe, a frequent target of President Donald Trump’s wrath, said.

Trump supporters on Twitter reacted to the news with anger.
