Following yesterday’s criminal referral issued to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, his ex-boss James Comey and several other individuals, alleging malfeasance during the 2016 US election, the Washington Post reports that McCabe was referred to the U.S. Attorney’s Office by the Department of Justice’s internal watchdog.
The referral to the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office occurred some time ago, after the inspector general concluded McCabe had lied to investigators or his own boss, then-FBI Director James B. Comey, on four occasions, three of them under oath. –WaPo
It is unknown how the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s office has responded to the referral – including whether prosecutors have launched a separate investigation, as a criminal referral does not obligate officials to take action.
