We’ve reported previously on how critical an impact Inspector General Horowitz’s report would be in the ongoing investigation into the FBI’s collusion in the presidential election.
And now we’re beginning to get a glimpse of how big that impact may be.
Responding to demands from Sen. Chuck Grassley’s Judiciary Committee concerning its own investigation, the ousted former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe has offered to testify on his role in leaking details of the Hillary investigation to the media.
But before he testifies, says a letter from his attorney, he wants immunity. Um…set aside the 5th Amendment for a second.
That’s pretty darn close to an admission of guilt.
What’s more, if he testifies, that could mean he’ll bring the hammer down on James Comey. This could get interesting.
Here’s more from Fox News…
Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe is seeking immunity in exchange for his testimony related to the Hillary Clinton email probe, something Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said is “very, very unusual.”
An attorney representing McCabe on Tuesday sent a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) requesting that McCabe be granted immunity in exchange for testimony surrounding the inspector general’s report that he leaked information about the Clinton investigation to the press and lied about it to former FBI Director James Comey.
“I have to tell you, it’s unheard of for the number two person at the FBI saying, ‘You want me to testify? Give me immunity,'” Napolitano said on “Fox & Friends First” on Wednesday.
