Trump’s DOJ Drops McCabe Case, Will Have Flynn Case Investigated | The 11th Hour | MSNBC Trump’s DOJ Drops McCabe Case, Will Have Flynn Case Investigated | The 11th Hour | MSNBCDay 1121 of the Trump Administration that leaves 263 days to go until the 2020 election to other quick numbers here tonight. The president is at Mar-A-Lago for the 29th time as president 175th day they’re as president back home in Washington, another fairly explosive day, after usually quiet justice department and a second straight day of completely mixed signals, including what appears to be a slow calling campaign. 2 C’s increasing amounts of control over politically-charged cases, and they are numerous.
The New York Times was the first report that Trump say gee Bill bar has tapped an outside prosecutor. To quote is the criminal case against President Trump’s. Former National Security advisor Michael Flynn bar has also installed a handful of outside prosecutors, broadly reviewing the handling of other politically sensitive National Security cases. They go on to say for the past two weeks, the outside prosecutors have begun grilling line prosecutors in the DC office about various cases.
Well, you may recall that Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying the FBI during special counsel, Mueller’s investigation of ties between Trump campaign and Russia and all those contacts earlier tonight are senior Washington, correspondent, Andrea Mitchell, explain to the audience why a review of this case is Raising Concerns political alarm first, former FBI officials say: is there a concerted station called in the Inspector General, not a prosecutor seconds, then that wants to withdraw his guilty plea, saying the FBI surprised him being surprised, use for lying to the FBI? That’S a crime.
Third, as with Rodger Stone, the justice department overrule the prosecutors last month, producing plans proposed sentence from six months to probation no jail time. This raises suspicions that, even though the president has sold 40 / partners, he may be trying to make a case for a pardon for Flynn New York, the office we call. The southern district of New York has taken new steps into the investigation of the and who once ran the southern district of New York, Rudy Giuliani. Those new steps include apparently evidence and Witnesses, potentially against Rudy, even as the main justice department in Washington report a days ago, with a straight face.
They’Ve set up a time to receive private citizen giuliani’s information that he has gathered in Ukraine. Also tonight the justice department is now dropped. Its case against former FBI, deputy director Andrew McCabe, was accused of lying to investigators about a to the media. The US attorney’s office in Washington inform McCabe’s attorneys quote the government has decided not to pursue criminal charges. We consider the matter closed, McCabe open to counterintelligence investigation into Trump in 2017 after the president fired Comey that launch the Russia inquiry that also put McCabe, and the FBI in the president’s crosshairs and McCabe has been trolled threatened and attacked ever since they should be looking At all these FBI, guys who got fired and demoted to the invitation card to survive in FBI, I think he’s a sick guy personally, Andrew McCabe, too bad guy Andrew McCabe has made a fool out of himself.
I think it’s a disaster and what he was trying to do was terrible and he was caught. All of this is taking place, while the president appears to be asserting his growing control over federal law enforcement and as a turn, jungle bar speaking out about Trump habit of weighing in on all things. Justice department yesterday bar told ABC News: president splitter habit was making it quote impossible for him to do his job and he suggested the president stop it hours later course. The president about bar quote, the president has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case AG bar this doesn’t mean that I do not have as president the legal right to do so.
I do, but, if so far chosen not to Bar who today marks one year on the job is Under Fire for his decision to reverse a sentencing recommendation for a convicted Trump Ally, Rodger Stone. The decision was announced shortly after the president criticized the recommended Federal sentence of 7 and 9 years tonight. The Washington Post reports, Rodger stone, is requested a new trial a day after Trump accused the jury forewoman of by us interesting ly, Bartels ABC News. He was all for Stones, prosecution supported it.
I think it was established. He was convicted of obstructing Congress and witness tampering, and I thought that was a righteous prosecution and I was happy that he was convicted unless there are now at least nine Senate Democrats calling on Barda resigned, they’re, accusing him of lying to Congress when, during his confirmation Hearing he pledged to keep the law enforcement process free from political influence, former Federal prosecutor and US attorney, who we have come to know, says based on the past twenty-four hours.
It is time for the AG to step down from office Tweety and if you really believe in the independence of the justice department, which bar has at least gone on record as saying he believes in then, when the president’s responses to tweet and say he’ll metal in Criminal cases, whenever he damn well pleases only move is to resign MSNBC on YouTube.With Trump’s influence in question, A.G. Barr’s Justice Dept. is having the case against Michael Flynn investigated & the case against Andrew McCabe dropped. Aired on 02/14/20.
