...The Department of Justice will no longer pursue criminal charges against former FBI Deputy Director , closing a high-profile case against the former official whose conduct during the 2016 election came under intense scrutiny.
..."We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe, arising from the referral by the Office of the Inspector General to our Office of conduct," wrote two officials from the D.C. U.S. Attorney's Office.
...Lawyers for McCabe - Michael Bromwich and David Schertler - celebrated the news, saying that McCabe and his family "Can go on with their lives without this cloud hanging over them."
...McCabe was fired from the FBI by then-Attorney General , after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz provided a recommendation to an internal FBI office that said McCabe was not forthcoming during interviews with federal investigators and that he "Lacked candor - including under oath - on multiple occasions."
