Watchdog report: Ex-FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe misled investigators

Watchdog report: Ex-FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe misled investigatorsAndrew McCabe, the fired FBI deputy director, misled investigators multiple times about his role in a news media disclosure about Hillary Clinton just days before the 2016 presidential election, according to a Justice Department watchdog report. The report alleges that Mr McCabe authorised FBI officials to speak with a Wall Street Journal reporter for a story about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation and then misled FBI and Justice Department officials when later questioned about it. Mr McCabe denied the report's allegations in a detailed rebuttal statement. Mr McCabe 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 Mr McCabe could retire with a full pension. The report gave additional fodder for President Donald Trump's public attacks on Mr McCabe. On Friday night, the president tweeted: "DOJ just issued the McCabe report – which is a total disaster. He LIED! LIED! LIED! McCabe was totally controlled by Comey – McCabe is Comey!! No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!" James Comey, the former FBI director whose new book paints a damning portrait of Donald Trump Credit: AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster The president has made a concerted and Twitter-driven effort to impugn Mr McCabe as a partisan hack, accusing him of covering up unspecified "lies and corruption" at the FBI and calling his firing a "great day for Democracy." Mr McCabe has fired back, saying his dismissal was part of the Trump administration's "ongoing war" on the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. The report was sent to congressional committees and obtained by The Associated Press. The inspector general's finding led FBI disciplinary officials to recommend that the Justice Department fire Mr McCabe. Donald Trump, the US president, frequently criticised Mr McCabe before his firing Credit: AFP PHOTO / NICHOLAS KAMMNIC Attorney General Jeff Sessions dismissed him last month two days before his scheduled retirement for what he described as a lack of candor. Mr McCabe also has said he believes he was singled out because of the "role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath" of Mr Comey's firing. To support this, Mr McCabe has noted that the inspector general's investigation into him was accelerated after he told congressional investigators that he could corroborate Mr Comey's accounts of his conversations with Trump. Mr 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 Mr Comey in May 2017. The Associated Press has also confirmed that Mr McCabe kept personal memos detailing interactions with the president and they have been provided to the special counsel's office.
