A judge told federal prosecutors on Monday that they needed to charge former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe or stop investigating whether he lied to authorities. Judge Reggie B. Walton said at a hearing that if prosecutors don't make a decision by Nov. 15, he would order the Justice Department to release internal FBI documents connected to McCabe's ouster, according to a transcript of the hearing. "If the government has not made a call I'm going to make a ruling," he said. "This is just dragging too long. And those who have to make these hard decisions need to do it. And if they don't, I'm going to start ordering the release of information." "I will not condone further delay," added Walton, a George W. Bush appointee who once presided over the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. “You all have got to cut and make your decision. It’s not a hard decision, and I think it needs to be made. If it’s not made, I’m going to start ordering the release of information because I think our society, our public does have a right to know what’s going on," he continued.



The FOIA suit was brought by the group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), in July 2018, the newspaper reported. The group filed the request after McCabe was fired in March 2018. CREW lawyer Anne Weismann said during the hearing that the delays look like a "mad effort to find some way to indict Mr. McCabe to appease the president." “We’re in dark times where there’s growing evidence that the president aided by the attorney general is using the power of his office to go after perceived political enemies. He’s going after the intelligence community. He’s going after the law enforcement community,” Weismann said. “I totally appreciate what you just said and share many of the same concerns,” Walton responded.


I almost feel sorry for the administration. Everything they do is slathered in incompetence, to the point of looking like a caricature of what an actual presidential administration is. At least we do have checks and balances. I mean, The rats are literally jumping ship!

So, are we tired of winning yet?

Can we start the "LOCK HIM UP!" chant yet? Too soon?

Ah well, elect a clown, you get a circus. Enjoy the show!
I know I am!

I've never seen any high-profile politician in my lifetime ever go to prison. It would be nice.

For years we heard how corrupt Hillary and Obama were and how any day now they would be indicted. I wish the Republicans were not so incompetent. It would have been nice for the American people get a single shred of justice against the tsunami of corruption we call government.

Sop voting D or R and we will.

At this point, if your a registered Democrat or Republican, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.

You do not understand how politics work in this country. There are reasons why we have only a two party system. We don't have a parliamentary system where the silly-parties have any real power. You have to caucus to get on any committees. No caucus no power.

The problem is not me. The problems with our country are NOT rocket science. The average Joe making the median worker's wage has absolutely no power in DC. The CEOs and billionaires pay the lobbyists to force the politicians to pass laws creating cartels and monopolies in exchange for campaign financing. Every major consumer market is a pay-to-play market. We have no free-markets of any meaning size left to wring out the inefficiencies of exorbitant CEO pay and excessive dividends. The result is the American people are gouged into poverty by the pricing fixing of wages, products, and services. The evidence is right here in this graph:

30 year graph of purchasing power of the consumer dollar

If you want representation in this country you have to pay for it through lobbyists. Organized crime is now running the government. Corporations ARE the government.

This is why I laugh every time someone says we have too much communism or socialism in this country. The worker making the median wage has practically no power. We are about as far away from communism as you can get and still have a government currency worth a shred of value.

The median workers wage has no bearing on the power to VOTE, unless they have started charging for that right.

Registering as a party member gives power to the PARTY, not to the PEOPLE.

Put your country first, register as INDEPENDENT.

No one is going to vote independent unless we get another Ross Perot candidate. Gary Johnson is a dumbf@$k lunatic who thinks 16 year olds should vote. Thats all I need to say no.

Voting and registering are two completely different operations.

Depends on your state. For Ohio that would be terrible advice as being a registered (to a party) voter means that you are given different primary ballots. Dems pick from the field of Dems, Reps pick from the field of Reps and Ind usually have no choice. If there are no other state or local issues on the primary ballot, Independents are told thank you for stopping by but there is nothing for you to vote on until the general election.

At the general election, you are free to vote however you wish regardless of which party you are registered with.

Primaries make a huge difference.

Yes, the Republicans are clueless and incompetent. And the Democrats are corrupt and stupid.

Illinois has a whole wing of a prison designated to past Governors... Not saying a Governor is a high-profile politician, but they are pretty darn high..

I would love to see McCabe get charged. These people lie so shamelessly because they get away with it. When a federal prison somewhere starts filling up with government officials who got caught committing perjury, the lying will stop.

They lie shamelessly because we keep voting them in.

I have no doubt there are people here that would even admit to voting for Trump after all his lies.

Hell, Sec. of State Pompeo lied on air about being on the Ukraine phone call, and people will support him after lying. He should removed from his position immediately.

No, he didn't. Please stop spreading lies yourself.

The only reason McCabe hasn't been officially charged yet is because they're waiting to complete ALL of their investigations on him so they can charge him all at once. Until Durham is done with the origination of the Russia debacle, it won't happen. I'm hoping this encourages Durham to speed things up. Comey will most likely go down with him.

*you're

Maybe not. Seems the democrats have swung so far to the left that they've left a ton of members behind. There's not much of a democrat party left, and the Republicans that hate Trump have been pushed away to bring in the new members that were left behind. I think everything is fine.

They keep delaying Flyn's sentencing so what are we talking about. Is this judge saying Flyn's can wait, McCabe goes first. He should be saying get Flyn's situation resolved...meh.

That's the key, but it goes even deeper. McCabe is one person; there are others tied in with him, and if he is charged, these others will start covering their tracks. I'm convinced the idea is to make the charges in rapid succession to prevent this.

I'm trying to figure out what a judge is doing interfering in an investigation? Once the charges are brought, the judge holds all the power, but until then? What rat has he got in this race? I have never heard of a judge deciding he specifics of an investigation before. The most he should do is determine if evidence presented is legally obtained, after charges are brought.
