DOJ Inspector General Releases Report Finding That Andrew McCabe 'Lacked Candor'

NARCH  NARCH30

Donald Trump has seen the inspector general report issued by the Department of Justice in regards to former FBI Deputy Director #Andrew Mccabe allegedly lying about leaking confidential information to the media.

The agency inspector general's report outlines an inquiry into Mr McCabe which US Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited when he fired him last month.

Mr McCabe has also said his dismissal was part of the Trump administration's "ongoing war" on the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation and that he was singled out because of the "role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath" of Mr Comey's firing.

Trump tweets: "DOJ just issued the McCabe report - which is a total disaster".

The report, written by Inspector General Michael Horowitz, said McCabe "lacked candor" in conversations with Comey and other officials about his green-lighting the sharing information with a Wall Street Journal reporter who was working on a story about an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

The report also reveals starkly contradictory accounts from Mr McCabe and Mr Comey about how the conversations with the reporter had come to take place. "He LIED! LIED! LIED!" he continued, claiming "McCabe was totally controlled by Comey". McCabe vigorously disputes its conclusions, and his team distributed a point-by-point rebuttal of the inspector general's allegations. Comey, who was sacked by Trump in May, called the president "unethical, and untethered to the truth", according to excerpts from the book.

"The core weakness of the OIG report is the lack of any understandable motive for his alleged wrongdoing", said the statement in part.

The IG also concluded that McCabe's "disclosure of the existence of an ongoing investigation in the manner described in this report violated the FBI's and the Department's media policy and constituted misconduct".

"President Trump will no doubt gloat about these findings and misuse them in his ongoing disinformation campaign", he continued, asserting that House Republicans "will nearly certainly try to use this report to fuel their efforts to distract from the abuses of power by this Administration and to undermine the Department of Justice". "The Inspector General found not only did McCabe divulge sensitive information, he did it without the permission, authority, or knowledge of his supervisor". He said that when he believed his answers to the inspector general were misunderstood, he went back and tried to correct them.

"This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the Federal Bureau of Investigation, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally", McCabe said in a statement after his firing. "No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!"
