Lying to federal agents is supposed to be a crime, but it isn’t if you work for the bureau. According to a bombshell decision the Attorney General dropped on the public Friday, it’s perfectly fine to lie to the FBI if you work there. Deep state mole Andrew McCabe completely walked away from all penalties after leaking information to the press and lying to investigators about it. The American public is stunned. He didn’t even get his wrist slapped.
Lying to federal agents is designated as a crime
Unlike the bogus impeachment “charges” smearing President Donald Trump, which couldn’t be defined as crimes, this one is. Title 18 Section 1001 of of the United States Code, prohibits knowingly and willfully making false or fraudulent statements, or concealing information, to federal investigators. Even “denying guilt” when asked by a federal agent is a crime.
High profile people have done jail time for it, including Martha Stewart, Michael Flynn, and Scooter Libby. But not Andrew McCabe. Attorney General William Barr just put an asterisk next to that law. It now says *unless you work for the Federal Bureau of Instigation.
Unless you work for the FBI
The Department of Injustice sent a letter off to McCabe’s attorneys stating that the two year old case is closed, without a single word of explanation. CNN was quick to plaster the entire document all over the internet and get McCabe in front of the cameras to gloat. The whole thing spans a single paragraph. Some say this is the real crime, the murder of American justice.
“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 (OIG) to our Office of conduct described in OIG’s April 13, 2018, report entitled “A Report of Investigation of Certain Allegations Relating to Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.” Based on the totality of the circumstances and all of the information known to the Government at this time, we consider the matter closed. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.”
Remember kids, if you want to lie to the FBI it's important you work for the FBI. Otherwise you'll get in big trouble. https://t.co/Glja6Vjlii

Political historian Drew McCoy was quick to point out the hypocrisy on Twitter. “Remember kids, if you want to lie to the FBI it’s important you work for the FBI. Otherwise you’ll get in big trouble.”
