If you're curios about why McCabe wasn't prosecuted even though Barr is supposedly running the DOJ, here's your answer:


Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder lost his temper on Thursday in reaction to details surrounding the Democratic prosecutor and Obama administration holdover who dropped the case against former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, telling a reporter to "shut the hell up" and accusing him of wanting to "use the justice system for political reasons."

What are the details?

Investor's Business Daily alum and RealClearPolitics contributor Paul Sperry tweeted Tuesday, "BREAKING: Molly Gaston, the asst US Attorney who signed letter to McCabe's lawyer informing McCabe she was closing criminal case against him, is Democrat who's given thousands to Dems including Obama & who once worked for Dem side of House Oversight & whose mother worked for WaPo."

On Thursday night, Holder replied to Sperry, "Why don't you shut the hell up. Your bias is showing. I bet you've never been a prosecutor or have any idea how DOJ works. People like you-who want to use the justice system for political reasons-are both dangerous and ignorant. The case was-like you-an obvious loser."

The Twittersphere pointed out that Mr. Holder is a partner at Covington & Burling LLP, the same law firm where Gaston's father, Eugene Gulland, is senior counsel.

According to Fox News, Sperry "has often been critical of Holder, the Justice Department, and current Attorney General William Barr."

Sperry tweeted Thursday night, "Eric Holder completely politicized DOJ so he has a lot of gall weighing in on this issue." What's the background?

The Justice Department launched an investigation into McCabe in 2018, following a criminal referral from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. McCabe, who now works for CNN, was accused of lying to investigators and leaking sensitive information to the media.

On Feb. 14, Gaston and DOJ Fraud & Public Corruption Section Chief J.P. Cooney sent a letter to McCabe's attorneys informing them that "the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client."

Living in that house of cards is becoming very precarious indeed and there may be earthquakes and violent tremors not too far off.
