Sacked FBI deputy director misled investigators, watchdog says

Sacked FBI deputy director misled investigators, watchdog says

Donald Trump has seen the inspector general report issued by the Department of Justice in regards to former FBI Deputy Director #Andrew Mccabe allegedly lying about leaking confidential information to the media.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe in March due to recommendations from a department senior official and early reports on McCabe's behavior.

Responding to the inspector general's report, McCabe said he believed repeated calls by President Donald Trump to fire him had prompted a rush to judgment and an unfair probe into his conduct.

The report, authored by inspector general Michael Horowitz, says McCabe "lacked candor" in conversations with then FBI Director James Comey and other officials about his role in providing information to a Wall Street Journal reporter about a probe into Hillary Clinton.

Trump tweeted Friday that McCabe "LIED!"

The inspector general's report claims that McCabe misled investigators about the FBI's contacts with the media.

In a broader swipe at the FBI and Comey, Gowdy said: "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".

Goldman Sachs reported this week that Facebook in particular could see a 7% decline in revenue as a result of the news laws. However, he rejected suggestions from Congress members that Facebook users did not have enough control over their data.

McCabe has disputed that assessment and issued a point-by-point rebuttal on Friday.

Trump's Twitter tirade against McCabe came on the heels of another attack on Comey, whose upcoming tell-all memoir has enraged the President.

Trump fumed in an exclamation point-ridden tweet that McCabe "LIED!" "No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!" Mr. McCabe also said that he did not intentionally mislead investigators.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler of NY, the senior Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, expressed concern Friday that Trump and Republican lawmakers would use the report to try to discredit the unrelated Russian Federation investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on behalf of the Justice Department.

The newspaper article delved into a dispute between F.B.I. and Justice Department officials over how to proceed in an investigation into the financial dealings of the Clinton family's foundation.

His lawyer said the inspector general unfairly tried to conclude its work before McCabe could retire with a full pension. It was Mr McCabe's word against Mr Comey's, and the inspector general sided with the latter.

Trump has made a concerted and Twitter-driven effort to impugn McCabe as a partisan hack, accusing him of covering up unspecified "lies and corruption" at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and calling his firing a "great day for Democracy".
