(National Sentinel) Hypocrisy: This is why the vast majority of Americans believe many of our governing institutions are hopelessly corrupt.
In a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s attorney, Michael Bromwich, says he and his client are outraged — outraged, mind you — over the leak that McCabe’s serial lies to federal investigators have been referred for prosecution to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in D.C.
What did McCabe allegedly lie about?
Previous reports have noted that Bromwich’s letter to Grassley was a request that the Judiciary Committee grant his client “use immunity” in exchange for testimony regarding the Clinton email investigation, Spygate, and other related matters.
Use immunity essentially means that nothing McCabe says during testimony can later be used against him to pursue legal matters. The request itself means that McCabe is willing to flip in order to stay out of jail himself. Bad news for people like, say, James Comey and Loretta Lynch.
On page two of the letter, however, Bromwich launched into a criticism of the leak that his client’s case has been referred to the U.S. attorney. He argues that the leaks were destructive to his client and he’s demanding an investigation:
He [McCabe] has a credible and compelling story to tell. However, as the result of a stream of leaks from the Department of Justice, it is now well-known that the OIG has made a criminal referral to the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.
As you know, the grounds for such a referral is the very low standard of “reasonable grounds to believe there has been a violation of Federal criminal law.” 5 U.S.C. App. 3 § 4(d). Even so, and even though Mr. McCabe committed no crime, these leaks have forced us to acknowledge the criminal referral.
And, unfortunately, the stream of leaks has continued: As recently as last Thursday, additional leaks led to the reporting of specific investigative steps allegedly taken by the United States Attorney’s Office in response to the referral. We are outraged by these leaks and last Friday requested an investigation by the Department of Justice’s Office of Professional Responsibility into the source(s) of the leaks.
Just. Wow. You really can’t make up this kind of stuff.
But it proves once more how out-of-touch and tone-deaf these swamp creatures really are, and why POTUS Trump is now sitting in the Oval Office instead of Queen Swamp Creature Hillary Clinton.
And by the way, who’s Bromwich?
He’s the goombah lawyer who got a federal court to appoint him to “monitor” (spy on) Apple over a bogus anti-trust case blaming the tech giant for fixing e-Book prices.
Many believe that Amazon was guilty of that, but Amazon — which began selling e-Books long before Apple — never got a look by a federal court.
