Over the past few weeks Washington, D.C. has been in a whirlwind because Republican congressional lawmakers sent out criminal referrals to Jeff Sessions, the Attorney General. They are looking to punish those involved in the Hillary Clinton email scandal that rocked the 2016 presidential election. Now some of the biggest names in the Washington, D.C. game are getting hit and it does not look pretty.
Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey were a few of the people who got criminal referrals. Others include Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, for “separate violations.”
The Patriot Journal reported,
“Republican lawmakers have finally had it with those shady Democrats. In a move that shook Washington to its very core, GOP lawmakers sent out a bunch of hard-hitting criminal referrals to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Those facing charges include some of the biggest names in the political game, several of whom are from Barack Obama’s camp.
Former high-ranking FBI members also got hit hard, as Capitol Hill seeks to punish those involved in the Hillary Clinton email scandal and outrageous Trump-Russia investigations. The criminal referrals in question do include Hillary herself (has her time finally come?), as well as former FBI Director James Comey, who has been on the hotseat for weeks.
Others facing charges are former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, for “separate violations.” The bottom line is that Republican lawmakers believe these people, regardless of status, should be treated as equals.
“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately.” They claim Comey potentially broke the law when he protected Hillary, and for leaking classified info of his conversations with President Donald Trump to give to the press.
As for Clinton, they’re saying she’s guilty of disguising payments to Fusion GPS, the firm that produced the infamous Trump dossier. Strzok and Page, apparent Obama lackeys, interfered in the investigation of Clinton’s private email server, as they apparently tried to erase the necessary evidence. “The report provides the following alarming specifics, among others: ‘Mr. Strzok texts Ms. Page to tell her that, in fact, senior officials had decided to water down the reference to President Obama to ‘another senior government official,” the criminal referral said.
This is a very big deal, my fellow citizens. At long last, some of these deceitful, two-faced higher-ups are going to face official charges. Now, if only they can get those charges to stick… Here’s hoping!”
“The Justice Department’s inspector general referred its findings on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to the US attorney’s office in Washington for possible criminal charges associated with lying to internal investigators, according to a source familiar with the matter.
When exactly the referral was made to the US attorney’s office was not immediately clear, and prosecutors there may decline to prosecute.
Last week, the IG issued a report finding that McCabe “lacked candor” on four occasions with internal investigators when discussing a Wall Street Journal article about the FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation, according to a copy of the report obtained by CNN.
In addition, the inspector general determined that McCabe was not authorized to disclose the existence of the investigation because it was not within the department’s “public interest” exception for disclosing ongoing investigations. The disclosure to the Journal was made “in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of department leadership,” the report said. While leaking non-classified information is generally not a crime in itself and the IG’s investigation was not a criminal probe, lying to federal investigators is a crime. Referrals are not unusual but the move is significant give McCabe’s role as the former No. 2 at the FBI. McCabe’s attorney, Michael Bromwich, said he believes there will be no charges filed.
“We were advised of the referral within the past few weeks. Although we believe the referral is unjustified, the standard for an IG referral is very low,” Bromwich said in a statement. “We have already met with staff members from the US Attorney’s Office,” he added. “We are confident that, unless there is inappropriate pressure from high levels of the Administration, the US Attorney’s Office will conclude that it should decline to prosecute.” The Justice Department, the inspector general’s office and the US attorney’s office all declined to comment. The findings formed the basis of McCabe’s firing last month by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”
The criminal referrals are a perfect example of the corrupt nature of the Obama administration. They were willing to go to any lengths to do what they thought was right as well as undermine the Trump presidential campaign. Even if it meant breaking the law. But since Democrats are no longer in power nobody wants to put up with their illegal antics anymore. They should be referred, charged, and sentenced for the crimes they committed.
