CNN found itself at the center of another national controversy Monday; sparking outrage after failing to cover correspondent Andrew McCabe’s apology for lying to Congress.
“CNN pundit Andrew McCabe apologized for lying to federal investigators concerning a 2016 leak to The Wall Street Journal about the Hillary Clinton email probe, but you wouldn’t know it if you were tuning in to his employer,” reports Fox News.
“The transcripts released by the Justice Department specifically raised the possibility that ex-Deputy FBI Director McCabe, now a paid CNN commentator, could face a false statements charge similar to the one leveled against former national security adviser Michael Flynn,” adds Fox.
The network -as of Monday morning- failed to cover McCabe’s apology.

BREAKING NOW: US Attorney Recommends Charges Against Former FBI Boss Andrew McCabe
US Attorney Jessie Liu officially recommended proceeding with charges against former FBI official Andrew McCabe Thursday afternoon over his handling of sensitive material during Hillary’s email investigation.
“U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against Andrew McCabe, Fox News has learned, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official,” reports Fox News. “McCabe — the former deputy and acting director of the FBI — appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, but the department rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.”
“The potential charges relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements concerning a Hillary Clinton-related investigation,” adds Fox. “A source close to McCabe’s legal team said they received an email from the Department of Justice which said, ‘The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office.’”
McCabe was recently hired as a commentator for CNN.

DEEP STATE IN CHAOS: Transcripts Show McCabe Claimed HE FIRED Peter Strzok, Not Robert Mueller
Chaos and confusion continued to cause havoc at the Deep State this week, with new transcripts showing former acting FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe claimed that he “made the decision” to remove Peter Strzok from Robert Mueller’s legal team.
“Former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe claimed he ‘made the decision’ to remove Peter Strzok from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team in the summer of 2017 after a series of anti-Trump text messages surfaced between the former FBI special agent and another official with whom he was romantically involved,” reports Fox News.
“It was long thought that Mueller had Strzok removed after the texts between him and Lisa Page were uncovered. But McCabe’s apparent role was revealed in a newly released transcript from his House Judiciary Committee interview on Dec. 21, 2017,” adds the article.
“They said they had a very important matter for me to review and they needed me to come across the street and talk to them that day, which was unusual,” McCabe told lawmakers in July 2017. “I made the decision to remove him from the investigation that evening.”
McCabe made national headlines in March when he baselessly asserted that the now-debunked ‘Steele Dossier’ was “accurately represented” when obtaining FISA warrants against the Trump campaign.
“I do believe that we adequately notified the FISA Court of the information we were using, and what we thought of the information,” McCabe said over the weekend.
“I think everyone was satisfied that we had represented that accurately and adequately in the package,” he added. “I do think we represented it adequately”
McCabe was abruptly fired from the DOJ in March 2018 just days before his scheduled retirement from the agency; asserting he was removed from the bureau due to the Trump administration’s “ongoing war with the FBI.”
