Justice Department inspector general says McCabe repeatedly mislead

Former Deputy FBI Director Andrew Mc Cabe is faulted in an inspector general's report for overstepping his authority and a

The Department of Justice's Inspector General released a report Friday on its investigation of fired deputy director Andrew McCabe, concluding he lied about media contacts. The inspector general said that the disclosure to the Journal was made "in a manner created to advance his personal interests at the expense of department leadership".

Trump and Cohen's attorneys went to court Friday to try and block officials from accessing information that they claimed was protected by attorney-client privilege, The New York Times reports.

President Donald Trump responded to the report by tweeting that McCabe "LIED!" "He LIED! LIED! LIED!" "No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!"

Michael Bromwich, a lawyer for McCabe, said in a statement that McCabe's treatment was "far more harsh and far less fair than he deserved", and that the inspector general's report "utterly failed to support the decision to terminate Mr. McCabe".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also likened Messers McCabe to Comey, calling them "2 peas in a pod" at Friday's press briefing with reporters.

"In the full context of this case, the termination of Mr. McCabe was completely unjustified". "And yet two of the lack of candor allegations are based on Director Comey's admittedly vague and uncertain recollection of those discussions".

That's one of the damning revelations the Justice Department's Office of the Inspector General released in a Friday report.

But even as India presses Hong Kong on the arrest, the central government in Beijing could play a decisive role behind-the-scenes. The CBI had approached the Interpol with a request for issuing "Diffusion Notice" which was aimed at locating an individual.


It will also look at the early stages of the FBI's investigation into whether Trump or any of his associates helped Russian Federation interfere in the 2016 election.

Trump had accused McCabe of bias, and the president's critics said McCabe was sacked from the FBI as part of a Republican effort to discredit a federal investigation into purported ties between Russian Federation and the Trump presidential campaign. Trump's pick to replace Comey, Christopher Wray, was sworn in the same day. Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said in a statement. We therefore concluded that McCabe's disclosure of the existence of an ongoing investigation in this manner violated the FBI's and the Department's media policy and constituted misconduct. Jerry Nadler said in a statement. The official said McCabe was "angry".

The report says McCabe twice told investigators that he didn't know anything about how the information got out. Comey, who was sacked by Trump in May, called the president "unethical, and untethered to the truth", according to excerpts from the book.

While the report is mostly focused on the disclosures in the Clinton Foundation investigation, it also sheds more light on his recusal in both the Clinton Foundation and Clinton email investigations.

The scathing report comes less than a month after Sessions terminated McCabe, just days before he was set to retire from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In particular, McCabe authorized Special Counsel and AD/OPA to disclose to Barrett the contents of a telephone call that had occurred on August 12, 2016, between McCabe and the then-Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General ("PADAG").

McCabe contacted the NY official again on November 4 following the publication of another Wall Street Journal article that referred to the information McCabe had leaked.
