So Roger Stone lied about something ridiculous and gets seven to nine years… but Andrew McCabe lied under oath, was fired in 2018 for it, and now he’s off scot-free?
To add more kindling… what about Flynn?
President Trump should excuse Stone, write it on a brick, and throw it through the window of the DOJ office.
Heck, may as well just write it on their mirror bathrooms in lipstick.
As The Daily Wire reported:
In a letter sent from J.P. Cooney, head of the DOJ’s Fraud & Public Corruption Section and Molly Gaston, assistant U.S. attorney, the department said that “the government has decided to drop the investigation and charges.”

More from The Daily Wire:
As The Daily Wire wrote last year, such dishonesty is a violation of FBI policy. The OIG also determined that McCabe violated FBI and DOJ policy by disclosing “the existence of an ongoing investigation in the manner described in this report.”

The following year from McCabe’s firing, McCabe claimed that he was fired due to retaliation and political motivation, then filed a lawsuit against the DOJ accordingly. McCabe made the assertion that the DOJ fired him in order to discredit the Russian collusion investigation, stating that President Trump pressured the DOJ to do so.
So, the consequences are simply a slap on the wrist and ‘we’ll just make you uncomfortable for a bit, but welcome back!’
