U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton blasted the Justice Department on Thursday for their indecision on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

Walton, a George W. Bush appointee said, “This is not a hard case. I was a good prosecutor for a long time. Deciding whether or not you’re going to charge someone with false statements or perjury is not that hard, factually or legally — maybe politically, but not factually or legally.”

The hearing Thursday stemmed from a FOIA lawsuit filed by far-left watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington to obtain documents related to McCabe’s firing.

Recall, McCabe was fired in March of 2018 just hours before he was set to retire with full benefits and one month later, IG Horowitz released a scathing report on McCabe saying he ‘lacked candor’ (lied) several times, including under oath.

Thursday’s hearing centered on a curious reversal by the DOJ, who for one year maintained that most of the documents sought in the FOIA suit were off-limits because of an ongoing investigation and decision-making on potential charges against McCabe.

On Wednesday, DOJ prosecutors reversed course and announced they would no longer argue the documents requested in the FOIA suit in McCabe’s case be withheld because of a pending proceeding.

This reversal made the federal judge very angry and left people wondering if this means McCabe is off the hook.
