Justice Department inspector general says McCabe repeatedly mislead

Former FBI Deputy Director Is Faulted in Scathing Inspector General Report

"He LIED! LIED! LIED!" "No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!"

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe last month over the allegations - two days before he was set to retire and qualify for his government pension.

Mr. Trump responded to Comey's book for the first time Friday, calling him a "LEAKER & LIAR" and saying he "should be prosecuted".

"The core weakness of the OIG report is the lack of any understandable motive for his alleged wrongdoing", said the statement in part. Equivalent with lying James Comey. "Can we call them Fake Memos?"

While there is a "public interest" exception for disclosing the existence of ongoing investigations, doing so "in a manner created to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership, was clearly not within" that exception, the report says. Moreover, the report says McCabe broke bureau rules when he "lacked candor" on several occasions, including to then-FBI director James Comey, while talking to internal investigators who were probing the leak.

McCabe, the former F.B.I. deputy director, at the Capitol in December.

"Andy's 19 years of experience, blended alongside together with his imaginative and prescient, judgment and ability to talk, make him a great match for this job", Comey said in a assertion on the time. Trump's select to modify Comey, Christopher Wray, was sworn in the an identical day.

What about his handling of the Clinton email probe?

He was under oath when he lied to the FBI agents, the inspector general said in a lengthy new report that could prove devastating to Mr. McCabe's credibility, and to other ongoing investigations.

The report claims that even if McCabe had been forthright about his actions, his disclosure still would have violated the FBI's media policy.

Melissa Schwartz, McCabe's spokeswoman, wrote on Twitter that the timing of the document being handed over to Congress Friday was "fascinating", then added, "But no report transmission to Mr. #McCabe and no public disclosure from the Office of the Inspector General".

McCabe was sacked by Attorney General Jeff Sessions last month, two days before his scheduled retirement.

McCabe, who has argued he was being singled out because he was a witness into whether Trump tried to obstruct the federal probe, said in a statement on Friday he was authorised to share that information with reporters and had not intentionally misled anyone.

What is the "Andy" textual content material message?

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. "And I actually didn't suspect Andy". "It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you're 40".

McCabe's partner, Dr. Jill McCabe, ran for a Virginia State Senate seat in 2015.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said in a statement Friday that the IG's report, however, made "clear that the decision to fire former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was the correct one". McCabe told the official to "get his house in order".

McCabe previously drew attention for his misbehavior regarding the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails.

Trump has been critical of the donations.
