Hannity on Report Feds Considering Charging McCabe: 'The Walls of the Deep State Are Collapsing'
Sean Hannity reacted to a report that prosecutors in the District of Columbia are considering filing charges against fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe for allegedly lying to federal agents.
Former FBI Director James Comey was recently questioned by the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s office as part of a probe into whether Andrew McCabe, his former deputy, committed a crime by lying to federal agents, a Thursday report claimed.
The Washington Post report indicated that McCabe, whom President Trump fired earlier this year just days before he would have been eligible for a lifetime pension, could be charged criminally, according to a person familiar with the matter.
McCabe was fired after the Justice Department's watchdog said he lied to investigators reviewing the bureau’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s email server. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said McCabe had not been forthcoming in regard to the handling of the FBI’s probe.
"It looks like two key members of the deep state are now turning on each other," Hannity said of Comey and McCabe. "This could be the signs of the wall collapsing."
Hannity said McCabe wrote a personal memo about his concerns with Trump's firing of his friend and boss James Comey.
Hannity said members of the "Trump-hating press" were "very wrong" in their recent analysis of McCabe and Comey.
He played clips of MSNBC's Chris Matthews, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and New York Times journalist Michael Schmidt reacting to the news of the memo, saying that their reporting was full of "lies, hysteria and breathless reporting of so-called news."
He said Comey himself said Trump had the right to fire him "for any reason."
He added that the McCabe memo may show that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has conflicts on interest in the Russia probe.
