DOJ settlement awards SpyGate figure McCabe his pension back
There's some speculation about what this means for Durham deciding whether or not McCabe gets criminally charged. I don't really see those things as connected. Main DOJ wants to protect the people involved. That's what this is. It's a settlement of a lawsuit, not any sense of clearing McCabe of wrongdoing. DOJ just wants to do a favor for one of their own by restoring his pension.
Durham will charge, or not, without getting involved one way or the other.
The fact that even the minimal punishment applied to McCabe for attempting to influence an election and then participating in the Mueller coup attempt was wiped out is infuriating, and it may well be meant as some kind of subtle hint to Durham that McCabe is protected. But I also don't think it's really necessary to read that far into it.
Durham may well have been warned off DOJ/FBI people in his investigation, but if so, I don't think that communication is happening by press release and coded settlement offers.
