The U.S. Justice Department moved closer to a politically sensitive prosecution of former top FBI official Andrew McCabe on Thursday by rejecting a request from his legal team to drop the case, according to two sources familiar with the investigation. The notice indicates that the department could soon bring criminal charges against the FBI's former No. 2 official, who has endured years of criticism by President Donald Trump after playing a key role in the investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russia in the 2016 election. McCabe has said those attacks are part of an effort to undermine law enforcement and intelligence professionals.
