He has always denied lying to the FBI - under oath or otherwise.

Remember - this is the guy Trump made sure was fired two days before he could retire.

So - McCabe is suing for wrongful termination. The Trump folks are saying McCabe can't see his own files in the cilvil litigation because they are looking at criminal prosecution. The Judge, a Bush appointee, has told given them many months to prosecute - but it appears they really do not have any evidence, not even enough to get a grand jury indictment.

The Judge was pissed - maybe felt like this was a groundless political act intended to harm McCabe. Here are some quotes from a meeting with the attormeys held last September - but just released yesterday - at the same time the Gov announced no charges:

The McCabe case—and President Donald Trump’s personal involvement in it—prompted federal judge Reggie Barnett Walton to call the government’s handling of it “disturbing,” a “mess,” and veering close to a “banana republic.”

“I think it’s very unfortunate,” Judge Walton told prosecutors as the case hung in limbo in late September. “And I think as a government and as a society we’re going to pay a price at some point for this.”

The comments were made in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) against the Justice Department.
Jordan Libowitz, a spokesperson for CREW, said the eventual release of the court transcripts on Friday, after a lengthy court battle, showed that the government was “trying to cover up the fact that they were stringing this [lawsuit] along while looking for a reason to indict McCabe.”
