Fitzgerald's paralysis over McCabe row puts her credibility on the line

It is now more than a week since Garda Commissioner Nóirín O'Sullivan issued a clarifying statement on her attitude to whistleblower Sergeant McCabe that, in actual fact, clarified nothing.
Having insisted she "does not - and have never - regarded Sgt McCabe as malicious", she pointedly failed to explain why her barrister was seemingly instructed to impugn his motivation and credibility at the commission of inquiry.
According to transcripts leaked from the inquiry, it was the Garda Commissioner who gave those instructions.
