U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu recommended moving forward with charges against former FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu recommended moving forward with charges against former FBI Director Andrew McCabe, according to a report released Thursday.
Fox News reported Thursday that a source close to McCabe’s legal team said that they have received an email from the Department of Justice (DOJ), which reportedly said that the agency rejected their appeal.
The email reportedly read, “The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office.”
McCabe allegedly appealed the decision all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, but Rosen rejected that request.
Fox News reported that Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against McCabe.
Should federal prosecutors move forward with charges, he would become the first senior law enforcement officer involved in the Russian investigation to be prosecuted.
