DOJ Accuses McCabe of Lying, Releasing Sensitive Information

From the Washington Post:

The Justice Department Inspector General alleges in a damaging report made public Friday that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe inappropriately authorized the disclosure of sensitive information to a reporter and then misled investigators and former FBI Director James B. Comey about it on several occasions.

The report is remarkable for its level of detail, casting McCabe as a man who lied to investigators and his own boss about his role in a disclosure of information, even while he lashed out at others who he thought might be responsible for leaks.

It accuses McCabe of lying at least four times, three of them under oath, and says that while he had the power to approve disclosures of information to the media, his doing so in this instance violated policy because it was done “in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership.”

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

Remember, this is also the guy who was working on the Hillary Clinton email case and whose wife got a big contribution from Clinton crony Terry McAuliffe, the former governor of Virgina, for her political campaign.
