Watchdog Report Claims Ex-FBI Deputy Director McCabe Misled Investigators

NARCH  NARCH30

Before firing McCabe, Trump had zeroed in on contributions a political group aligned with then-Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) made to McCabe's wife's unsuccessful campaign for state senator in 2015.

It also says McCabe and Comey contradicted one another in their descriptions of how a media disclosure was authorized.

Ending the tweet with a flourish, the president stated that there was no collusion and that it was "all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!" Subsequently, McCabe led FBI Director James Comey to believe that he had not approved such media disclosures.

The investigation was about the Clinton foundation's financial dealings and what he revealed to reporters, and later withheld from investigators. His lawyer says the inspector general unfairly tried to conclude its work before McCabe could retire.

"James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR". McCabe has fired back, saying his dismissal was part of the Trump administration's "ongoing war" on the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

The report, written by the inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, was delivered to Congress and was expected to be released publicly later in the day.

The inspector general's finding led Federal Bureau of Investigation disciplinary officials to recommend that the Justice Department fire McCabe.

The report from department's internal watchdog formed the basis of Attorney General Jeff Sessions' firing of McCabe last month, less than 48 hours before his scheduled retirement, a decision that pleased President Donald Trump and White House allies who have long portrayed McCabe as compromised by anti-Trump bias. To support this, McCabe has noted that the inspector general's investigation into him was accelerated after he told congressional investigators that he could corroborate Comey's accounts of his conversations with Trump.
