What's good for the goose ...

Andrew McCabeA public policy analyst believes James Comey might soon be facing the same fate as his former number-two at the FBI.

The Justice Department Inspector General has sent a criminal referral related to dismissed FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to federal prosecutors in Washington. The referral to the U.S. Attorney's office for the District of Columbia does not mean McCabe will ever be charged, but it does raise the possibility that the longtime law enforcement official could face a criminal investigation into whether he intentionally made false statements.

Abraham Hamilton III, general counsel and public policy analyst for the American Family Association, says McCabe appears to have done the same thing for which President Trump's national security advisor, Michael Flynn, has been charged.

"And that was lying to FBI agents," Hamilton states. "So there were some people who were so excited to see Michael Flynn charged who may not necessarily see Andy McCabe charged, but this is one of things that's what's good for the goose appears to be good for the gander."

And Hamilton believes McCabe's former boss, James Comey, could be in trouble as well.

"Congress just received the seven memos that Comey had written, four of which he leaked to his Columbia law professor friend that shows at a minimum one of the memos Comey intentionally leaked to his law professor friend to get them to The New York Times included classified information," the attorney relays. "That is clearly a breach of federal law, so I would not be surprised to see James Comey himself referred as well for criminal charges in the not too distant future."

But Hamilton does not think the charges will extend beyond Justice Department officials to Hillary Clinton.
