Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Did a federal grand jury refuse to hand up an indictment of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe? No media organization has reported that this is what happened Thursday, but something clearly happened when the grand jury met"and that something wasn't the McCabe indictment that everyone was expecting.

Normally, when the Justice Department informs a criminal target that it is moving ahead with charges, particularly when the target is a high-profile one, the indictment follows immediately.

Yet in this case, no indictment materialized. And that wasn't because the grand jury didn't meet.

The possibility of a criminal case against McCabe has smelled bad for a while. As one of us has spelled out in detail, this is not the kind of case that normally ends up as a criminal matter.
