Judicial Watch Director of Investigations Chris Farrell on the DOJ inspector general’s report that said former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe authorized a leak to the media.
Since he was likely the main reason that General Mike Flynn, then the Administration’s National Security Advisor took one for the team and dutifully fell on his sword, let’s keep it simple, put them both in a cage and settle it.
Burnt Toast !
Fired just days before his actual retirement, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was under investigation by the bureau in March 2017 for an alleged unauthorized leak to the media about former national security adviser Michael Flynn and President Trump. (Source)
The alleged leak, which has not been publicly revealed, involved a “statement overheard in early February 2017,” according to documents released by the FBI on Monday.
The FBI’s Office of Public Affairs received the complaint about the alleged leak, and an investigation appears to have been opened on March 20, 2017.
This will likely impact his retirement benefits negatively. (Source)
The new revelation was included in a batch of documents released Monday related to an internal investigation of McCabe.
It is unclear what information McCabe allegedly leaked, or what the FBI determined and thus recommended in the situation.
McCabe was fired from the FBI in March after Justice Department’s inspector general determined that he misled investigators about the role he had in leaking information to the Wall Street Journal in October 2016 about the investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
Further evidence that those who dance with the Clinton’s get burned.
He “lacked candor” on four occasions when interviewing with internal investigators, the IG report said.
In April, it was revealed that the Justice Department IG had referred its findings to the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington for possible criminal charges. Federal prosecutors have since been using a grand jury to investigate McCabe.
A spokesperson for McCabe declined to comment.
