DOJ nears prosecution of ex-FBI McCabe

The Justice Department is moving closer to prosecuting the former deputy director of the FBI - Andrew McCabe.

That's according to sources, who tell Reuters the DOJ on Thursday rejected a request from McCabe's legal team to drop the criminal case after an internal investigation found he misled investigators about his contacts with news media.

The DOJ and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the

Class="kln">District of Columbia, which would prosecute the case, both declined to comment.

The case is a politically sensitive one - with McCabe having endured years of criticism by President Donald Trump after playing a key role in the investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russia in the 2016 election.

McCabe has said those attacks were part of an effort to undermine law enforcement and intelligence professionals.

He has sued the Justice Department, arguing that he was fired in 2018 for political reasons just hours before he was due to retire.

His dismissal came after the Department's internal watchdog issued a report saying he misled investigators, probing whether he improperly shared information with a news reporter during the 2016 presidential election.
