Well, that was thoughtful of him. According to the New York Post, former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe has apologized for lying to agents who spent weeks investigating the source of a Wall Street Journal leak that came directly from McCabe.

McCabe is the author of “The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump.” But it’s President Trump who’s dragging the solemn institution of the FBI through the mud … got it. The Post reports:
Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe apologized for lying to agents who spent weeks investigating the source of a leak to the Wall Street Journal that actually came from him, new documents reveal.
Shortly before the 2016 election, The Journal reported that an FBI investigation was underway involving then-candidate Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.
McCabe in May 2017 denied that he was the source of the leak — but later fessed up, angering bureau investigators who had been spinning their wheels trying to identify the source of the leak.
This is a crime. People go to jail for this. When the Deputy Director of the FBI is the guilty party, it's even worse.https://t.co/cMdyKpffgC

Exactly! So why is he not being charged for his crimes?

Well, lying to the FBI is a crime, right ? Why isn’t he in jail ?

Great. So where are the indictments? I keep hearing about crimes committed, then NOTHING HAPPENS!

Good point … if McCabe is indicted and locked up, how will he fulfill his responsibilities as a CNN contributor?
CNN contributor ????

He’ll be on .@cnn with his analysis tonight.

Then why isn’t he in jail now? Who is holding up the arrest? Put him in jail he is not above any US citizen. If I did this I would be arrested!

Hoping he’ll have his house raided in the dead of night too.

Is he admitting this as part of a plea bargain?
— Ruby (@IncrementalAdv) January 2, 2020
So-McCabe is “sorry” for lying to his FBI colleagues? Is that a legal defense? Nope.

Maybe he needs to serve some quality prison time.

Yet here we are, with the seditious bastard on television opining away and most of our media is complicit in a long running coup attempt. I spent years as a law officer & there’s nothing worse than a dirty cop. McCabe & Comey are going down. I just wish I could slap the cuffs on
