Comey And McCabe Part Of 'Den Of Thieves And Lowlifes'

"The rush to fire McCabe late on a Friday night, just hours before he was to retire, casts a tremendous shadow over the integrity of this process".

McCabe, who was to turn 60 on the day of his retirement, has disputed the report, and issued a point-by-point rebuttal on Friday. "He LIED! LIED! LIED!" "He LIED! LIED! LIED!" he continued, claiming "McCabe was totally controlled by Comey".

"No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes", the president said.

In response, McCabe said that his firing was a part of the Trump administration's "wrestle on the Federal Bureau of Investigation", together with that he was being singled out because of the "operate I carried out, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed inside the aftermath of the firing of James Comey".

The report says McCabe twice told investigators that he didn't know anything about how the information got out.

McCabe had leaked the details to a Wall Street Journal reporter over an anonymous telephone call.

The report goes on to count at least four occasions where McCabe was dishonest about whether he played a role in the leak. During that interview, McCabe again said he didn't authorize the disclosure and didn't know who did. The disclosure to the WSJ effectively confirmed the existence of the CF Investigation, which then-FBI Director Comey had previously refused to do.

McCabe was sacked by Attorney General Jeff Sessions last month, two days before his scheduled retirement. Mr. McCabe also said that he did not intentionally mislead investigators.

Andrew McCabe has prolonged been beneath fireplace, notably by Republicans who've voiced conflict-of-interest complaints over McCabe's ties to the Democratic Social gathering. The inspector general began its work on the report more than a year ago, and the report has always been anticipated in Washington.

"I can't disregard his actions, but I'm disappointed the context wasn't given more weight", she said in a statement.

McCabe's attorney responded to the report by saying that as Deputy Director, McCabe had the power to make statements to the press. "This report continues to call into question decisions made by FBI leadership in 2016 and 2017, which is why the Oversight and Judiciary Committees will continue our joint investigation into the matter". His wife was taking hundreds of thousands of dollars for her political campaign from friends of Hillary Clinton at the same time McCabe was investigating Clinton's mishandling of classified information.

The report reveals that McCabe had recused himself from both the Clinton email probe and the Clinton Foundation investigation on November 1, 2016.

In addition to addressing whether McCabe lacked candor, the OIG's misconduct investigation addressed whether any FBI or Department of Justice policies were violated in disclosing non-public FBI information to the WSJ.
