BREAKING: Andrew McCabe has dropped his wrongful termination lawsuit against the DOJ. -Fox News— Jason Bailey 🗯 (@iamjasonbailey) October 26, 2019
Only ONE reason for that.
It wasn’t a wrongful termination.
Barr. Durham. Horowitz. They know.
Soon the whole WORLD will know.
T H E S T O R M I S H E R E 🍿
Just to correct some reports I saw yesterday, Andrew McCabe has NOT dismissed his wrongful dismissal lawsuit against the DOJ and FBI - at least not yet. He dismissed his related *FOIA* lawsuit.— Undercover Huber (@JohnWHuber) October 26, 2019
So keep your popcorn on standby for now🍿
Get more detail at the thread.

Choice of a criminal defense attorney or a Labor Law ambulance chaser. A matter of priorities.ReplyDelete

Jacobson at Legal Insurrection has an insightful piece on the effect of Barr’s remark about “spying” and now Durham’s handling of what is now publicly acknowledged to be a criminal prosecution. Jacobson advises the unknowing that Durham is someone to be feared and these guys do know it. Baker has already toppled, if you can believe OAN, and everyone seems to…. Who will be next?
Lifson at AmThinker ties McCabe's action here into the likelihood of his indictment. I have to believe that McCabe is not entirely compos mentis--I've been saying that he's a nut, and this seems conclusive.Delete
Rejecting the plea, even if it's a tough deal, is a bad idea because he's gonna go down. And he'll get no mercy when that happens, after spurning the plea offer.
Oh, and re Durham ...Delete
I've been pointing out that he may well view this whole thing as his chance for a second shot at Mueller, but this time with the gloves off.
IMHO there are a few key people who should NOT be offered deals and face prosecution and judgement. McCabe, Weissman, Strzok, Brennan, Clapper, (Comey?) "But I'll cooperate! -- Sorry that time has passed." (or notify their attorneys of the list and that you will only take the first 3 applicants...)Delete
Another thing I would wish for in the cases where testimony/cooperation results in their escaping justice: Sentenced to public televised admission of what they perpetrated, their participation, and their guilt.
I think what could happen with those key people is that the "deals" that they're offered will amount to--plead guilty to sufficient counts that will cover the full extent of your criminality, cooperate fully and completely, and we will offer some minimal reduction in sentence. But there will be jail time. Take it or leave it. If you leave it, we will do all in our power to hammer you.Delete
My fear has been, that McCabe etc. would take the reasonable gamble, that Beltway area types will hang all juries in all trials in that venue.ReplyDelete
I see him as, not nuts, but shrewd.
If Prosobiec is right about Baker, I'll bet that Baker just doesn't want the hassle of trial after trial, even
if he can count on one hung jury after another.
Maybe Baker isn't such a fanatic as Comey, as to be delighted to become known, for spending the rest of his life in court, as a "martyr in the fight vs. Trump's White Patriarchy".
Comey is nuts, only in the sense that his fellow Awoken SJWs are nuts.
If Barr/Durham works out according to plan, Baker WILL be going through trial after trial--as a witness for the prosecution. Nobody will care if he regards that as a "hassle."Delete
Maybe I wasn't clear.ReplyDelete
I'm presuming that Baker flipped, to avoid the hassle of being the suspect in multiple trials. The hassle of being only a witness is chump change, as long as the DoJ can protect him & his family from unprecedented SJW wrath (funded by e.g. Soros).
I'm guessing that McCabe etc. will prefer the hassle of being cross-examined in front of many (eventually hung) juries, over being tarred as a Traitor to Awokenness.
Baker would become the greatest Bane in the history of the U.S. Left, and McCabe etc. would be the ultimate Martyrs, in this scenario.
I understood that, but find it quite unconvincing. I think McCabe's gamble is reckless and a bit crazy. I don't believe--for reasons I've gone through--that McCabe will be a sympathetic defendant at all.Delete
Respectfully, I think that Mouse is off-track here.ReplyDelete
I assess that Baker flipped because they have him good on one or more charges and offered leniency in return for co-operation.
I assess that McCabe is in deep s**t and hasn't been offered a deal.
I think any of these guys who wants to go to trial hoping for an acquittal or a hung jury is adopting a very high risk strategy.
FWIW, these guys are guilty!
I agree. If McCabe was offered a "deal", I suspect it would be along the lines that I outlined to Anonymous above:Delete
plead guilty to sufficient counts that will cover the full extent of your criminality, cooperate fully and completely, and we will offer some minimal reduction in sentence. But there will be jail time. Take it or leave it. If you leave it, we will do all in our power to hammer you.
I don't mean to suggest that McCabe couldn't plead. But in all likelihood he is facing serious time and any deal would involve serious 'co-operation'. One can imagine the implications.
I'm not surprised McCabe hasn't flipped yet (if he hasn't).
He's got some tough choices. I just don't think going to trial and hoping for a hung jury is one of them.
IMO, he'd better make up his mind fast, and if he hasn't been offered a plea deal he should be actively seeking one. If James Baker has already flipped, as reported, and possibly McCabe's own counsel, Lisa Page, he's in a very risky position.Delete
So much of what Mark and Cassander write here is quite well-reasoned.Delete
However, I still fear that you underestimate the magnetude of the possible lure of martyrdom, in the lore of SJW-ism.
I suspect that most of the "habitual Dems" among these guys will play ball w/ Durham, but that the True Believers will fall for Maddow etc.'s pitch, on how "romantic" it would be for these SJWs to be seen on national TV, when (as they chanted in the '60's) "the Whole World is watching".
Yes, I fear, these guys may be that neurotic.
I worked with guys similar to these all my career. None of them have a martyr complex.Delete
Being slow to agree to a deal would probably be based on a hope that impeachment theater will somehow change the legal climate. Barr won't slow down.Delete
As far as any romantic notions McCabe might have (or have had) nothing focuses the mind like the prospect of decade(s) of jail time for undeniable criminal conduct. I would expect McCabe ultimately to co-operate although, as Mark suggests, his bargaining position may not be very strong.ReplyDelete
This assumes the prospect of decade(s) of jail time to be high.Delete
Given that, so I understand, the trials must be in the Beltway area, the prospect of hung juries is probably higher.
I'll be delightfully surprised, if McCabe etc. choose not to play those odds.
Esp. since the MSM (which, to SJWs, is effectively the Bible) will spin these trials as White Patriarchy witch-hunts.
Law enforcement defendants are a breed apart. LE defendants accused--with documentary evidence--of altering or inventing evidence to send people to jail will not receive lenient treatment. Conspiracy to violate civil rights, etc.Delete
And, I'll wager, McCabe etc. must fear that, were they to "betray" any of St. Barry's pals, he could expect to be slated to be fed into Jack Morrissey's woodchipper (after Nick Sandman?).Delete
I fear that many Beltway-area jurors won't mind covering for those engaging in Conspiracy to violate civil rights, as long as the victims were defenders of the White Patriarchy.ReplyDelete
