Many people were upset yesterday over the decision by the Justice Department, specifically Assistant U.S. Attorneys out of the D.C. office, not to prosecute former FBI official Andrew McCabe.
The DOJ Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, had made a criminal referral for McCabe after the IG determined that McCabe had repeatedly lied about having authorized a subordinate to share information with a reporter for an article about the FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation. McCabe was fired from the FBI as a result.
Many saw it as another example of a “two-tiered” system of justice, especially coming on the heels of controversy over an initial sentence recommendation of 7-9 years for Trump friend Roger Stone for a first offense non-violent crime. People associated with Trump? Gone after for anything and everything, arrested with guns drawn at 6 a.m. in the morning, locked up in solitary, given the harshest sentences versus Democrats or people viewed as being against Trump, let off without any prosecution, even with clear evidence.
However, while many on the right were disturbed, there were those who were celebrating that he got off.
Infamous former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, known for her biased messages against the President with her married lover, FBI official Peter Strzok, tweeted out congratulations to McCabe, as she held a glass of wine and wore a shirt with the words, “I am done being quiet.”
Cheers, Andy. pic.twitter.com/9xy3hBEzqc

People noted her gloating that he got away with lying.
You have to admire the cocky nature of these people. They know what they did, and who they did, and they know that they get away with it.

Well, not exactly, because Trump is still their president.
Definitely bookmarking this tweet.
Gloating always comes before the fall. (Jussie Smollett knows what I’m talking bout.)

Oh, and Lisa? Just another small point.
The DOJ letter saying they wouldn’t be going ahead with the prosecution of McCabe referred solely to the findings of the IG report. The Durham report is still coming, and both you and he may hear more from that.
