ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican Senator John Kennedy says former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is "lucky" he wasn't prosecuted for "perjury." Speaking on CBS' Face the Nation on Sunday, the U.S. Senator from Louisiana said, "He's lucky he wasn't prosecuted... for perjury, for lying to an FBI agent... He did it repeatedly.
Now if you and I do that, we go to jail." McCabe was fired in March 2018 by then-U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who cited an internal Federal Bureau of Investigation watchdog report that found McCabe leaked information to reporters and misled investigators about his actions.
McCabe said he was targeted over the Russia probe.
