Previous FBI Deputy Director Can Be Faulted at Scathing Inspector-general Report

Previous FBI Deputy Director Can Be Faulted at Scathing Inspector-general Report

The Justice Department's Office of Inspector General report on Andrew McCabe, the former top Federal Bureau of Investigation official who President Trump fired last month, was obtained and published by the New York Times on Friday, shortly after it was transmitted to Congress.

President Donald Trump is slamming fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Twitter, saying McCabe "LIED! McCabe was totally controlled by Comey - McCabe is Comey!"

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

The investigation was about the Clinton foundation's financial dealings and what he revealed to reporters, and later withheld from investigators.

The president is linking the report on McCabe to the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, tweeting, "No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!" He says that when he believed his answers to the inspector general were misunderstood, he went back and tried to correct them. His lawyer says the inspector general unfairly tried to conclude its work before McCabe could retire with a full pension.

"James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR".

It was just last month when then FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was sacked just days before he was set to retire and collect his pension.

President Donald Trump had accused McCabe of bias, and the president's critics said McCabe was being fired as part of a Republican effort to discredit a federal probe into alleged ties between Russian Federation and the Trump presidential campaign.

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, who is close to Comey, could be an important witness for Mueller, who is investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice, including his motivation for firing Comey in May 2017.
