Lawyer of fired FBI Deputy Dir. McCabe may file defamation suit vs

Then-acting FBI Director Andrew Mc Cabe on Capitol Hill

However, we concluded that McCabe's decision to confirm the existence of the CF Investigation through an anonymously sourced quote, recounting the content of a phone call with a senior Department official in a manner created to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership, was clearly not within the public interest exception.

As deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe "admonished" other FBI officials over leaks he himself authorized.

The inspector general share the report with Congress on Friday, the same day the FBI named Associate Deputy Director David Bowdich to McCabe's vacated role at the bureau.

President Donald Trump was quick to seize on the news, tweeting McCabe "LIED!" "He LIED! LIED! LIED!" When he acknowledged that he had authorized the leak, he made more misleading statements by saying that he had told Comey about it, the report found.

"Sounds like two peas in a pod with McCabe and Comey", she said in reaction to the news.

In a detailed rebuttal to the report, McCabe said he had made Comey aware of what he was doing, and that the report showed that Comey's recollection of their conversation was "fragmentary" and his statements about it "equivocal".

"The termination of Mr McCabe was completely unjustified".

McCabe, who served as Deputy Director for almost two years, was sacked last month.

Democrats have emphasized that McCabe's dismissal has nothing to do with the special counsel's investigation into Trump and Russian Federation, while raising questions about the firing.

The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee responded to the release of the report by attacking Republicans.

"Andy's 19 years of experience, combined with his vision, judgment and ability to communicate, make him a flawless fit for this job", Comey said in a statement at the time. The official said McCabe was "angry".

"The Inspector General found not only did McCabe divulge sensitive information, he did it without the permission, authority, or knowledge of his supervisor", said House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy. The headline on the Times story calls the report "scathing".

Republican critics have already seized on revelations that two FBI officials who worked on the Russian Federation investigation, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, exchanged text messages that were sharply critical of Trump.

The tweets came ahead of the release of Comey's memoir on Tuesday, which recounts his suspicious interactions with Trump and paints a deeply unflattering portrait of the president.

The OIG determined that McCabe was, indeed, "authorized to disclose the existence of the [Clinton Foundation] Investigation publicly if such a disclosure fell within the "public interest" exception in applicable FBI and DOJ policies generally prohibiting such a disclosure of an ongoing investigation".

The Trump administration suddenly fired McCabe weeks ago, just days before he was set to retire and receive his pension.
